    This should cause some uproar:

    Of course not. That is where the Democrats get their voters.

    Fair Warning: the devil's in the details on this.

    Felonies in other jurisdictions might be virtues here.

    As I recall, there was great brouhaha on this board a few months back concerning gun rights implications for foriegn felony convictions.

    I'm a little puzzled, too, but because aggravated felons can't get citizenship with current laws. 1 CIMT within 5 years of lawful admission = deportable, 2 CIMTs any time after lawful admission = deportable. If you're deportable, you are not eligible for citizenship, so...

    I'm not sure why this is being reconsidered. Seems like they're fighting for something they already have. Is this a way to sabotage immigration legislation while appearing to be doing something?
