January 12, 2013 – President Barack Hussein Obama now no longer has to worry about re-election. He is now free to pursue his so called “comprehensive immigration reform.” or amnesty for illegal Immigrants .
Congress left for the Christmas holidays adjourning without passing a mass amnesty for the 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States.
Some Republican leaders in Congress and President Obama have both said it will be a top priority for comprehensive immigration reform and the media couldn’t be more enthusiastic to spread the message.
Most state legislatures will also reconvene shortly after the first of the year. Several states that are reconsidering their bans on driver’s licenses and other rewards for illegal aliens.
While the 113 th Congress is likely to tackle “comprehensive immigration reform,” there are some signs for optimism.
On the Senate side, 60 votes are still required to pass a bill, which means that any “comprehensive immigration reform” bill will need bipartisan support. There are several Democratic Senators who will face tough re-election bids in 2014 and passing a mass amnesty bill isn’t necessarily something they’ll want on their record.
Of the estimated 11 to 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States, seven to eight million are thought to be holding a job. Rather than enforce immigration laws and encourage them to return home, President Obama and some in Congress have promised to push legislation that would provide work authorization and legal status to illegal immigrants.
Congress must Stop any illegal-alien amnesty proposals from the administration now.
Our nation’s immigration system has resulted in 26 million foreign-born workers holding U.S. jobs. At the same time, 20 million Americans who want a full-time job can’t find one.
Don’t let Congress ignore the plight of the American worker. We should not believe any lame excuses for rewarding illegal aliens with American jobs.
The willingness to pass a mass amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens must not come about as long as there are 20 million Americans who can’t find a full-time job, and allowing 12 million illegal aliens to join the legal work force would only make things in the Job Market worse.
Our nation’s immigration laws must be enforced in a firm manner, and The problem here is that we are not enforcing immigration laws and the end result is that we have over 12 million illegal immigrants here now.
Let’s not let the narrow results from one election cause any rash decisions on amnesty for Illegal aliens.
Amnesty for illegal immigrants should not be the answer and must be ruled out for the future and the welfare of this country.
