ALERT! Rep. Gutierrez introduces amnesty bill!
The unemployment rate has increased to 10.2 percent, the highest rate in over 25 years. Since the start of the recession, the number of unemployed American workers has risen by over 8 million, to almost 16 million.
In spite of this tragedy, Congress has done nothing to prevent American workers from being displaced by foreign workers and illegal aliens. While paying lip service to the plight of the unemployed, Congress continues to import a million legal immigrants each year and turn a blind eye to the ongoing flood of illegal immigration.
With over 15 million Americans out of work, one might think Congress would focus on this issue. Instead,
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has introduced his “comprehensive” immigration reform bill.
He 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 introduced 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.
This proposal is not just amnesty-lite, but amnesty-heavy, a step toward virtually unrestricted immigration.
