A Letter to My Senator

I came across this news article: 6 Senate Republicans Who Could Vote for Immigration Reform and decided to send a letter to Senator Saxby Chambliss. Not that it will make a difference..... They're tracking everything about me anyway- might as well put it all out there.

Dear Senator Chambliss,
I am horrified by the myriad scandals and abuses of power pervading Washington. From Obamacare to PRISM, the IRS and State Department scandals to Benghazi, those who are supposed to be representing the citizens of this country are acting in direct opposition to our desires and the law, spying on us, lying to us, and trampling on the Constitution.
While all these scandals are blowing up, Congress has decided now is the time to push through an Immigration Bill that will give amnesty (yes, I am aware this word is has been banned from our lexicon along with the terms alien and terrorist) to millions of illegal aliens while failing to secure our borders- one of the only true jobs of the Federal Government!
The real unemployment is over 10%, a record number of people are on food stamps and disability, the true cost of insurance under Obamacare is coming to light, and the national debt is pushing $17 Trillion. Is this really the right time to add 10 million (formerly?) illegal  immigrants to an already buckling system? Is there a right time to add 10 million illegal immigrants?
I implore you to fight for what remains of America. Vote NO on "Immigration Reform" and encourage others in Congress to do the same.
I am not against true immigration reform. I have friends in other countries who want to come to America. Friends with education, a work ethic, and the kind of values that made America great. These are people who wouldn't dream of coming here illegally. While they keep slamming against road blocks on their journey to legal immigration, our the government is planning to give a free pass to people who broke the law to come here. It's just not right!

  1. Great letter. Perhaps if we all become involved we can help to get America out of the ditch, and back on the road.
