I received this e-mail alert from my 9-12 group:
With over 15 million Americans out of work, one might think Congress would focus on this issue. Instead, yesterday (Dec 15) Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) introduced his “comprehensive” immigration reform bill.
Gutierrez previously outlined the components of his amnesty bill — granting legal status to illegal aliens, increasing the number of immigrant visas, and reducing wait times for family members of previously admitted immigrants to gain U.S. residency.
Gutierrez said he was introducing the bill before the holiday recess so “there is no excuse for inaction in the New Year.” Apparently, the Congressman’s Christmas gift to unemployed Americans is the permanent disappearance of their jobs.
