  One would think that we have learned enough from the past, and to stop these two idiots before the legislate again
Yahoo! News - McCain, Kennedy to Propose Fining Illegals: "WASHINGTON - Sens. John McCain and Edward M. Kennedy are putting together an immigration bill that would subject illegal immigrants to fines, but allow them to remain in the United States and earn a chance to apply for permanent residency.

The measure is an alternative to President Bush's guest worker proposal sought by employers but opposed by many conservatives.

Speaking Thursday at the Naval Academy, McCain, R-Ariz., said he and Kennedy, D-Mass., hoped to introduce their legislation next week.

Under their proposal, illegal immigrants would get three-year visas that could be renewed once. After completing six years of work, the immigrants would be eligible to 'get in the back of the line' to apply for permanent legal residency, McCain said.

Deporting the 10 million to 12 million illegal immigrants in the country is not practical, McCain told midshipmen during a guest lecture.

'There are some who say send them back to their countries,' McCain said. 'It's not possible. It's not going to happen.'"
