The Federation for American Immigration Reform released an incredible chart showing how under the new Gang of Eight bill, crimes committed by illegal immigrants may get waived, while U.S. citizens and legal immigrants will pay the piper for the same crimes with fines or jail time.
“No matter how many times the Gang of Eight or other amnesty supporters in the U.S. Senate promise that criminals won’t be legalized, S.744 waives a long list of crimes in the bill,” FAIR’s website reads.
The group’s complaint is that the new immigration bill places illegals above the law: “It’s an amnesty for all kinds of violations,” FAIR’s media director Ira Mehlman told the Washington Examiner.
According to the Examiner:
The Gang of Eight’s bill would allow illegal immigrants who entered the country before Dec. 31, 2011, and committed up to three misdemeanor offenses including but not limited to assault, battery, identity or document fraud, tax evasion, to remain eligible for Registered Provisional Status. Meanwhile, U.S. citizens and persons who entered the country legally could incur up to $100,000 in fines,15 years of imprisonment, or be prohibited to reenter the country for up to 10 years.
