"Gang of Eight" member Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, is threatening that if the amnesty bill before Congress is not passed into law, there will be massive civil disobedience. His threat alone puts the lie to the nonsense that he and others in Washington have been pushing at us about the poor, downtrodden undocumented individuals living "in the shadows."
Democrats who wrote the immigration bill insisted they didn't give up any core principles in agreeing to more fencing and adding 20,000 Border Patrol agents to the Southwest border, telling Univision that illegal immigrants will still get legal status well before the new security kicks in.
President Vladimir Putin's decision to allow Edward Snowden to land in Russia will have "serious consequences" for U.S.-Russian relations, Sen. Charles E. Schumer said Sunday.

Senators voted 97-0 Thursday to confirm Srikanth Srinivasan to a judgeship on the vitally important U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia after Republicans relented and allowed the vote to go forward this week.
The Senate immigration bill's authors acknowledged Tuesday that their legislation does not require illegal immigrants to pay all back taxes, saying it would be too difficult to make them ante up everything they might owe.
The Senate "Gang of Eight" immigration bill, S. 744, now wending its way through the Judiciary Committee, has been sold as a "pathway to citizenship" for the estimated 11 million illegal aliens. It does a lot more damage than that, and the public needs to understand what's in it.
