Congressman Luis Gutierrez –D-IL has begun the immigration bill drafting process and he claims there’s both support and votes for ‘compassionate legislation.’
Gutierrez promised supporters his immigration reform legislation would include keeping families together, protecting workers and finding an easy path to U.S. citizenship.
Sounds great if you’re in this country illegally. This move is in direct opposition to what the American people want. This bold move by Democrats will create more workplace anxiety among the unemployed, during a recession, and allow illegals to flood the already lagging jobs market.
“Allowing millions of illegal immigrants to stay and take jobs away from citizens is like giving a burglar a key to the house,” says Rep. Lamar Smith-D TX.
It is worth pointing out that keeping families together give undocumented workers the ability to bring their entire family into the U.S. If this is the case, the 12 million number could quadruple.
According to a new Zogby International poll, Mexican’s were asked if the U.S. grants amnesty would they migrate north to the U.S. A resounding 56 percent said yes, while only 17 percent said no.
An overwhelming majority, 69 percent, thought the primary loyalty of Mexican-Americans (Mexico- and U.S.-born) should be to Mexico. Just 20 percent said it should be to the United States.
“This bill doesn’t have a prayer because the American people oppose rewarding lawbreakers, which then encourages illegal immigration,” Smith stated in a press release.
Many proponents of amnesty agree illegal immigrants need to return to the end of the line and wait until their number is called just like the millions of legal immigrants have throughout American history.
