    I simply don't care since I don't support amnesty anyhow unless the person seeking amnesty is willing to give up their allegiance to their home country and can demonstrate a passable ability to converse in English and can prove they will work.

    they're two different topics. to me its like asking if i want water in my beer. keep them separate. if people want to live here do it the right way. go through the process to become legal. my great-great-grandparents did it. and if gays want to get married who gives a crap. just let them. why the hell is gay marriage a big deal? i don't agree with it but im not going to stand in someones way of being happy

    "... go through the process to become legal." One of those processes to become legal is to marry a U.S. citizen. If same sex couples are included in immigration reform, then those who have been living with U.S. citizens in committed relationships will be allowed to marry, thereby becoming legal residents. That IS going through the process to become legal.

    It's a sepperate issue all together, why not propose a bill for same-sex couples in general? I wonder what other differences Obama's immigration reform has as opposed to the BIPARTISAN ONE proposed by the senate? Hmmm...eyebrow raised!

    @Knightmare I'll take it a step further! What if it passes? Does that mean only gay immigrants get their civil rights? What about the rest of them? I don't know if you'll agree with me or not. But unlike the left that wants to take away rights for some and not for others (in order for votes). I believe in due rights for all, whether they are civil rights or constitutional rights. I would support a seperate bill for gay rights in general. I'm not gay and yes I am an ''evil'' conservative.

    @AlexMIA I think your missing the point or just dont care. What the legislation would allow is for gay citizens to sponsor their same sex partners for for the purposes of legal residence. Some are legally married in their countries of origin or in states that allow marriage here but their US born spouses have no status in the eyes of the federal Goverment. Any straight guy gone saunter off for a mail order bride and the government falls all over themselves to bless the union but if its a loving Gay or Lesbian couple they are treated like trash. The hatred toward gays is very evident based on the number of comments removed from any gay related posts on this site.

    If this goes through, some enterprising baptist would do well to set up shop on the Rio and sell pink robes.

    @DARSB The nuns abused all the kids in my wife's school too. What they did in the '60s and '70s would put them in prison today. She calls nuns "demon bitches from hell."

    @NormalFlora Ours were "Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary", or "BVMs," so naturally we called them "Black Veiled Monsters."

    Of course he does. And he now opposes any strengthening of border security as a part of the amnesty bill. Any way to get as many illegals onto the Democratic voting rolls as possible. He could care less about increased government spending. He is only a politician, winning is all he cares about. He wants to put out the Welcome to America sign for all the poor people of Mexico. Come one, come all, the US will take care of you. We will even show you how to vote for the party who will continue to pay your way. What a moron.

    Amendment XIV, Section 1 (the Equal Protection Clause) clearly states ALL in this country are to be equal under the law. Only those whack-jobs advocating treasonous views do not support our Constitution

    I read all the comments and not one person understood a thing about the issue. If you marry someone of the opposite sex who is from another country that person can immagrate to live with you in the U.S. If you marry someone of the same sex who isn't an American citizen they can not because the Federal government does not recognize same sex marriages. This means that a legally married same sex couple can see their spouce deported,(yes, it's happened although some have won court cases so their spouce could stay, some have not - it depends on the judge). This never happens to opposite sex couples. This is against the U.S. Constitution, of course but we've been ignoring the Constitution when it comes to people "we" hate. The President is pro-equality, pro-Constitution and that includes not creating a class of people for the purpose of discriminating against them. The President wants all married couples to be treated the same under the law. Pretty basic pro-Constitution and Bill of Rights stuff.

    What if I want to leave the United States? Heck, it's not the country I remember. I'm not sure I even like it anymore.

    So, where do I go? Can I border hop into Canada or Mexico? Can I expect either of those countries to provide me a job that should rightfully go to a Canadian or a Mexican? Can my children become instant citizens and allow me to partake of any and every assistance program available? Can I wave the U.S. flag in the streets and demand that my new country give me my rights? Can I get these countries to cater to my language? Can I expect them to educate my children? Can I expect a driver's license, a bank account and health care? And can I become a citizen of that country simply by believing that because I broke the law I have a God-given right to be treated to all the benefits legal citizens have?

    Anyone know of a place where, without documentation, we could take up residence and demand we be treated as equals?

    It's be nice if he actually BELIEVED in what he's pushing rather than pandering for vote. (Apply this sentiment to various politicians if your choosing)

    I wonder if we'll ever find out the truth why he had to fly to Vegas to make that speech with da Union boys.. I bet he had to deliver money for the votes he bought.

    Kinda reminds me of the sudden trip he took the Florida just before the election but then suddenly came right back to Washington without any scheduled visit . not like an honest man to take a trip like that on the taxpayer dime for absolutely no reason

    Is it possible for this phony president to get any more ridiculous? He was supposedly against gay marriage before his first election. Now, all of a sudden he is some activist pro Gay everything. Never before has any president mentioned homosexuality in his inauguration speech. Why is it that Democrat's must push their anti God pro Gay agenda constantly? Why do Gays get special mention constantly? We have hundreds of groups of people being insulted, denigrated, lack of equal rights but you never hear these pious phony Democrats speaking out on their behalf. No only Gays get special treatment. It is a joke what Liberals do and Obama is the king of liberals. We have commercials swpeaking to insults on Gays and how we stupid people should not use the word gay in a negative meaning. LOL, can you believe their agendas? How about fat people, skinny people, short people, handicapped people, etc. Where is their special mention when it comes to people who insult them.
