The real pressure needs to be placed on the house and it needs to be placed
district by district. People need to make it clear to members of the house that
their are lots of people in their districts who want immigration law to change
and are not hard hearted.
@Fitness Freak"The current immigration bill will be a total DISASTER
to the U.S. economy."The non-partisan CBO says it'll reduce
the deficit 150 billion the next 10 years."It adds 20 million
"new" workers to the workforce."They're already
here and working.
The sky won't fall if immigration reform passes. However, it will be a
disaster for the GOP if we continue to have policies shaped by fear, bogus
studies, anger and extreme rhetoric.Having said that, I don't
understand why the discussion is not about path to legal status rather than
citizenship. Allow decent illegal immigrants with deep roots here to come out of
the shadows, but say they are precluded from becoming citizens. Take away the
fear of those like Ann Coulter who believe a new Hispanic voting block will doom
the country as well as the concern that they will be a burden on entitlement
programs. Make the Dems put up or shut up. Are they guided by compassion or do
they have an ulterior motive? There ought to be a consequence for
immigrating illegally and denying citizenship is a fair and reasonable one.
They'd better watch out. According to a guy named Jesus, the Lord dislikes
people who hate others. Maybe they need to carry umbrellas with lightning rods
just in case.
The current Senate immigration bill being debated offers absolutely no
guarantees that the border will ever be secure. Napolitano can "opt
out" of ever actually following through with enforcement.The
current immigration bill will be a total DISASTER to the U.S. economy. Its not
sustainable, it has all kinds of "special carve-outs" for things in
Harry Reids state and (expensive)exemptions for Hollywood actors.It
adds 20 million "new" workers to the workforce.Who
DOESN'T think there will be another 20 million following behind to steal
THEIR amnesty?If you haven't already done so, please call Sen.
Hatch's office and let him know how badly we DON'T want another
Hard-right Republicans are really hard-hearted. No path for citizenship? None?
My own representative Chris Stewart is so hard on this point that I simply
don't understand him.
