We would not have one illegal immigrant living in this country if we had strong immigration laws.

When my grandparents came to this country from Russia and Italy, they came here legally. They learned the language and were proud to eventually call themselves American citizens.

We have thousands of legal American citizens out of employment. We have a two-party system unable or unwilling to stop the influx of more illegal immigrants, and in some cases wanting more immigration to this country. Meanwhile, our own citizens are struggling to survive.

This insanity has to stop. If we are going to change the meaning of illegal to legal, then let us free every prisoner in our jails for their illegal acts. We talk about freedom and justice; it is time we got some from our so called public servants in government.

Let’s get real; this is all about money and re-election, nothing else.
