(Continued)

Politicians say illegals must go to the back of the line for citizenship. Want to bet? Politicians say their plan isn’t amnesty. Maybe they’re right. Rewarding, rather than penalizing, people for breaking our laws is far worse than just amnesty, it’s amnesty plus.

Politicians say we can’t be tough on illegal aliens because it hurts their children. Maybe they think we shouldn’t imprison robbers, rapists and murderers because it hurts their children.

Politicians say they will build the fence and stop illegal immigration. They broke these promises before. Where is the fence they promised just a few years ago? They shouldn’t get to deceive us again.

The Gang of Eight’s comprehensive immigration reform will continue to harm most Americans. It’s time to stand up for American citizens and not let them be harmed to benefit illegal aliens, politicians, businessmen and other special interest groups.

Tell Sens. Ayotte and Shaheen, Congresswomen Kuster and Shea-Porter and President Obama to reject comprehensive immigration reform and all its false promises.

Just close the border, stop all taxpayer provided subsidies for illegal aliens and enforce severe penalties for knowingly employing illegal aliens.
