Immigration Debate: How did we get here?

One has to wonder how we have come to this point. Our Senators are providing a free pass to people who are here illegally and have knowingly broken our laws. They are negotiating in secret with groups that represent these illegals deciding what should be in the bill. They were trying to ram this legislation through without the people reviewing it. Why?

Does it sound like these Senators represent us? Or, rather, do they represent people who are not even citizens? Why are our elected federal representatives are not responsible to us for their actions? Why do they not protect us from the sure economic damage the proposed law will have?

I think they should add an amendment to the bill that if it passes, they have to forgo their government pensions and rely on the Social Security system like the rest of us.
