    I still don't think this bill actually creates a path to citizenship in practice. Doesn't it still have the onerous requirements for certification that the borders are secure, ones that in effect mean it will never happen?  I haven't seen the exact wording of what they passed yesterday, but  what they were working with most of the year was basically lip service to an actual path to citizenship.

    I suppose you could make the "foot in the door" argument as with Obamacare, but I haven't heard a really convincing version of that argument.
