Under comprehensive immigration reform, the illegal immigrants would have to pay a fine for living in the country illegally. Based on how long they've lived in this country illegally. And have to pay back taxes for any back taxes they may owe at the federal, state and local levels. And would be probational residents in this country for at least ten years and have to meet certain standards. Just to stay and live in the country, like holding a job, paying their taxes, not committing felonies.
And payoff the fine that they owe. So unless you don't understand the word amnesty or are simply using it to score political points, you can't seriously call this plan amnesty in a credible way. Because you're calling it something that it isn't either through ignorance or being dishonest. And trying to make the case that these illegal immigrants shouldn't be in the country anyway. Whether they came to the country legally or not.
