GOP to Consider Amnesty

I just sent an email to my Congresswoman regarding immigration reform.  Her website email form wanted to know what my email was about, and it asked me to specify “Pro Immigration Reform” or “Against Immigration Reform.”  This confused me, because if we just enforced the laws we already have on the books, we’d have secure borders.  So that makes me Anti-Immigration reform.

But we AREN’T enforcing those laws (or thousands would be deported daily), so something needs to be done.  So that makes me PRO-immigration reform.  I’m so confused. 

Anyway, here’s the email I sent:

Dear Rep:

My name is Steve Picray, and I live in your district. I am writing to you today to ask you to vote against any measure that provides amnesty or a path to citizenship for people who are living in our country illegally.  I saw on the news today that Rep. Paul Ryan and other Republicans are considering voting for amnesty for illegal aliens. My position is this:  if these people chose to disobey the law by coming here illegally, why should we trust them to follow our laws if we make them citizens?  Also, what kind of message would that send to people who are considering crossing our border illegally?  It tells them that we aren’t serious about our borders, and if they can just cross the border, they can get free healthcare, schools, welfare, food stamps, government housing, etc.  This will overburden our already strained economy.  

And so I am begging you to vote against any measure to provide citizenship to people who have already broken our laws.  

Thank you for your consideration of my viewpoint on this matter.

PS: anything you can do to keep Justin Bieber out would be great too.
