Let me cut to the chase. President Obama in un-veiling his immigration plan didn't mention that his plan rewards people who have broken into our country illegally. Keep in mind we had an amnesty in 1986 and that one time fix only encouraged more to come to America.
For your friends and neighbors who have been trying to come to America from the UK, Ireland, Russia, and the Middle East, they have been effectively told it would be better to walk across the border rather than walk into the immigration office. It would be faster that waiting in line.
If 12 million illegal aliens are now in the shadows they will soon be brought from those shadows and can compete on an equal basis with the 22 million Americans who are currently out of work or at least under-employed. When you consider the human cost remember our own folks who are working poverty wages. The competition will soon become more daunting.
If some form of amnesty is granted by the president it will do nothing to stop others from walking into America and seeking the same amnesty. It will not harden one border or make us more secure. Tell your representatives no to Amnesty. At this time we can not afford more competition for the few jobs that are available to Americans.
