Despite the majority of Americans' will — without closing the borders and without knowing how many illegal aliens are here, what they are doing, how long they have been here, should they be here, their criminal records, if they are employed/unemployed, who they work for or on welfare, if they hold student visas/still attend class, if they are in communication with terrorists (missed Dr. Hassan and the Boston brothers), how many extended family/friends are eligible, etc. etc. — the U.S. Senate passed its amnesty bill.
One could conclude these senators did not read the entire catastrophic 1,200-page bill. They did not understand the ramifications and unintended consequences of this bill. They gained monetary compensation for themselves/their states for their votes. Or maybe all three situations apply.
After the American Revolutionary War, Benedict Arnold left the country. Apparently many relatives stayed behind.
