So latest Ryan gimmick is to authorize illegals to work but pretend this isn't "legal status"? http://t.co/sBPEN539YD

Well, yes, that pretty much sums it up:
[Rep. Paul] Ryan confirms GOP “principles” will include legal status for the 11 million, but he also says this will be a “probationary status” to make sure the 11 million will not be “preferenced over people who did follow the laws.”
Ryan also says the undocumented will be allowed to work as part of “probationary” status before security benchmarks are met. “You can be on probation,” Ryan says, “while the border is being secured.”
So, legal status for 11 million illegal aliens, before anyone even pretends the U.S. borders are secured. Just the thing Americans need when long-term unemployment is at record levels in virtually every state.
