Immigration reform

We have 47,000 unaccompanied minors crossing into the United States and 11 million illegals here already. Eleven million people are not going to just go away. We need a plan. Who should stay, who should go, how, when and why?

Last year, Congress formed a bipartisan committee to come up with a plan for comprehensive immigration reform. Sen. Marco Rubio had the misfortune of trying to explain the plan, but was quickly shot down and backed off. The Senate passed it. Now, the House refuses to let it come up for a vote or even discuss it. If our house is burning down, should we really be arguing over who forgot to lock the door?
