Immigration bill, if passed, will take jobs from us allJuly 10, 2013
To the editor:
Illegal aliens need our jobs. Not mine personally, as I am retired, but my kids’ and grandkids’ jobs.
Sixty-seven U.S. senators, including Sen. Joe Donnelly, voted to give our jobs to Mexicans and others who managed to outfox our border police and sneak in. Twenty-seven heartless Republican senators selfishly refused to hand over our jobs. I am sorry to say that our Sen. Dan Coats was one of the naysayers.
Right about now some of you reading this may be thinking, “Hey, this is satire. Obviously, no senator is really going to vote to give our jobs to illegal aliens.” Of course, you are right. The senators are going to give them legal residency and documentation first and then give them our jobs.
Please do not get your hopes up too high just yet. The Republicans in the House are still in a position to really mess things up.
The cold-hearted and selfish (word I cannot use in print) want to keep our jobs for our own people. Unbelievable, isn’t it? As if our illegal aliens are not our own people too.
In conclusion, I will quote our great attorney general, Eric Holder, and say that a path to citizenship is a “civil right” and a “human right.” When the time comes any decent person will willingly hand over his or her job to a more-deserving former illegal alien.
I have to confess, though, that I have been a sore sport about this. I wrote my senators and representative and informed them that they can kiss my vote goodbye forever if they vote for this travesty.
