Americans are up in arms. You know they are. The emails, faxes and letters pouring into your offices are pretty hostile. I bet a year ago, you would never have imagined that the honeymoon would have ended so abruptly. Yet, even as the people are still fuming over the health care bill that you passed, your leadership is pushing forward another bill guaranteed to create an even greater furor — amnesty measure for 30-40 million illegal aliens. Have you all lost your minds?
The Democrat Party I know used to be thought of as the champions of the working man. So please explain to me how supporting Amnesty for millions of illegal aliens is going to help the millions of hard working Americans who have lost their jobs; lost their homes and even lost any hope of surviving this terrible recession we are in?
You must know that the mere mention of the word “Amnesty” historically encourages millions and millions of additional illegal aliens to rush for the border.
Do you really want 10,000 illegal aliens crossing our borders daily (that’s the real unpublished number of aliens who were crossing the last time we debated amnesty)?
At the end of the day, it all comes down to one thing: WHO DO YOU WORK FOR?
According to your oath of office, it looks like your job is to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. A lot of people, listening to the hate-filled words of groups like MEChA and others who feel they have the right of Reconquista (the taking back the entire American southwest), feel that there are indeed enemies at our gates and in our midst.
And, yet, you do nothing. The government of Arizona has spoken clearly that the failure of the government to defend the citizens of their state empowers them to take action without the advice or consent of the federal government. And now, ten more states are joining them.
This is all happening on your watch. And if you think to use this crisis as a convenient segway to push through amnesty, you had better think again because we, the people, will not stand for it. The people are demanding very little – they want their government to secure our borders against drugs, disease, illegal migration and terrorism.
Stop the invasion. Enforce the law. Is that asking too much of our elected Representatives?
