At what point is it amnesty?

One more reason that the Senate and the House will not be able to conference on this issue. Now that I think of it, maybe Bush and Company want the issue to be "punted" in 2006. Have the more conservative House stand up for something and attract their base to the polls, whereas the nationalized GOP looks more middle-of-the-road.

Just a thought.

The Washington Times:
The Senate voted yesterday to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment -- even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents.

"There was a felony they were committing, and now they can't be prosecuted. That sounds like amnesty to me," said Sen. John Ensign, the Nevada Republican who offered the amendment yesterday to strip out those provisions of the immigration reform bill. "It just boggles the mind how people could be against this amendment."
