Senators Cornyn & Hutchison,
Today, I learned there are plans to bring the "comprehensive immigration reform" bill back to the Senate floor. I've also learned the "grand bargainers" are going to try to buy votes by tying in a $4.4 billion bribe to "border security". We should be funding border security anyway. Border and immigration enforcement first. No amnesty. I WILL NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE WHO VOTES TO BRING THIS BILL TO A VOTE, AND WILL NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE WHO VOTES FOR ANY BILL WITH ANY HINT OF AMNESTY. The government needs to prove to me, over a PERIOD OF YEARS that the borders can be controlled, and that we can enforce existing immigration laws, before we do ANYTHING to deal with the millions of illegal aliens who are already here. PERIOD.
I will remind you again - I vote, and this issue, along with national security, is at the top of my list of important issue which will influence who I vote for in future elections. Do not vote for cloture if this bill is indeed returned to the floor. If cloture succeeds, do not vote for this bill. It is a bad bill. No new law is far superior to a new, bad law that will have a profoundly negative impact on our nation.
Copied to The White House with the following note:
I cannot fathom why the President is supporting this "comprehensive immigration reform bill". It is bad legislation and is bad for the American citizens our elected representives are sworn to serve.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
I will also add that I WILL NOT be making any donations to the RNC so long as you, the leader of the Republican party, and other "leading Republicans" in Congress support this Amnesty sham.
