The proposed immigration amnesty would benefit the 12 to 20 million undocumented aliens (illegal immigrants) currently living in the United States. An amnesty for illegal aliens forgives their acts of illegal immigration and implicitly forgives other related illegal acts such as driving and working with false documents. The result of an amnesty is that large numbers of foreigners who illegally gained entry into the United States are rewarded with legal status (Green Card) for breaking immigration laws.
The United States has granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants through
different amnesty and laws. Before the first amnesty in 1986, amnesty was only
given on a case by cases basis. Amnesty was never given to a large group of individuals. The first (and supposedly one-time only) amnesty in 1986 gave about 2.8 million illegal immigrations the opportunity to change their status through the Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA).

plan proposed by President Barack Obama. This legislation has not been approved yet.

THE PROPOSED IMMIGRATION REFORM AND AMNESTY
WILL INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
- Secure our borders:
Obama and Biden want to preserve the integrity of our borders. They support
additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on the border and at our
ports of entry.
- Improve our Immigration System:
Obama and Biden believe we must fix the dysfunctional immigration
bureaucracy and increase the number of legal immigrants to keep families
together and meet the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill.
- Bring people out of the shadows:
Obama and Biden support a system that requires undocumented immigrants who
are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the
line for the opportunity to become citizens.
"We are not going to ship back 12 million people, we're not going to do
it as a practical matter. We would have to take all our law enforcement that we
have available and we would have to use it and put people on buses, and rip
families apart, and that's not who we are, that's not what America is about. So
what I've proposed... is you say we're going to bring these folks out of the
shadows. We're going to make them pay a fine, they are going to have to learn
English, they are going to have to go to the back of the line...but they will
have a pathway to citizenship over the course of 10 years."
- Create Secure Borders
Obama and Biden want to preserve the integrity of our borders. He supports

cracking down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants.
- Bring People Out of the Shadows
