HR 4321 Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Grassley Discusses the False Advertising from the Authors
Immigration Enforcement circa 1986
Update: January 10, 2014 8 Arguments Against Immigration Reform
Amnesty has been an extremely emotional topic on Capitol Hill and main street America for years. I personally do not have a problem with “legal” entry into our country. On the other hand, illegal immigrants have been crossing our southern borders daily in staggering numbers; that I ardently oppose! The majority of these trespassers are Mexican citizens however, others from a wide range of countries also use Mexico as a point of entry into the USA.
Due to the political aspirations of our government leaders, this group of individuals has been pandered to since 1986. That's when the first Amnesty law passed and illegal immigration numbers started to escalate. Our government is presently considering a new Amnesty bill that many oppose, as do I. Amnesty, sends the wrong message concerning our borders, our immigration laws, and the lack of prosecutorial action if violated. Representatives Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill), and Solomon Ortiz (D-Tex). authored this egregious bill..
When elected to office the representative takes an oath vowing to protect and represent the rights of United States citizens. H.R. 4321 violates that oath by protecting a group of individuals who deliberately disregard our Federal Immigration Laws daily. What our government should do is enforce existing Immigration Laws and avoid the far-reaching effects of another amnesty program. H.R.4321 is more contemptible than the amnesty bill passed in 1986. My question is this; why should those who intentionally break Federal Immigration Law be rewarded with amnesty. If an American citizen breaks a law, we suffer the consequences and our reward could be jail or prison.
I personally view H.R. 4321, as an outrageous act of discrimination by our government against the United States Citizens. Please contact your member(s) of congress and communicate your thoughts on H. R. 4321.
