Letter: Ayotte stabs us in the back
Sadly, Sen. Kelly Ayotte joins Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in stabbing Americans in the back. Comprehensive immigration reform, despite some positive sounding provisions (which history suggests won’t be implemented), benefits the politicians, special interest groups and illegal aliens at the expense of already over-taxed, over-victimized, and under-employed Americans.
They say this bill isn’t amnesty, but rewarding people for breaking our laws is amnesty!
They say requirements must be met before benefits are given. Who goes to jail if the “requirements” aren’t enforced, if the fines and taxes are waived, or if illegals get federal means-tested welfare? No one. (Illegals can get taxpayer funded state, local and apparently federal non-means tested welfare. The attempt by politicians to mislead Americans on this is despicable!)
We only have an illegal immigrant problem because politicians shirked their responsibilities. Americans don’t trust politicians because politicians repeatedly show themselves to be untrustworthy. And our politicians don’t listen; a vast majority of Americans has repeatedly said “No!” to comprehensive immigration reform.
Until existing immigration laws are enforced and the border with Mexico closed, Congress, the executive branch and the judiciary deserve our disdain, disrespect, distrust and complete opposition to comprehensive immigration reform.
