I've been a bit busy this week working on several projects. Illegal Immigration is one huge problem this week as a form of amnesty has worked its way through the house; we need to make a stand on this! America has always been a nation of laws, but the present administration has been working for almost two years to circumvent those very laws we as conservatives hold dear.

It is important that we tell our senators this will not be tolerated, over 60% of America disagrees with the law suit against the Arizona law sb 1070. We want the Administration and Congress to listen to the majority of their constituents and end this insanity of an amnesty program. The illegal alien problem isn't just a product of this President; it has been going on since Richard Nixon. 9/11 changed our border problem forever; we cannot have any form of National Security until we address the hundreds or perhaps thousands of people streaming over our borders on a daily basis. Illegal aliens cause more of a drain on our tax dollar than the overused argument of the liberals of "the cost of the Iraqi war."

Anchor babies are yet another problem passed by Congress, and only serve to break families apart, and tax our system even more. Where are the level headed thinkers that should be running our country based on laws and not "social conscience?" We should be making laws based on what is best for America, not laws based on a small portion of people.

The preamble to the Constitution says that natural and naturalized citizens are entitled to the benefits and rights afforded in the Constitution, it doesn't say anything about non-citizens being entitled to ANYTHING, and yet our Congress and President pander to these groups that don't represent any legal standing.

If a citizen, a politician, or a serviceman does have "proper standing" to require our President to produce his birth certificate, then why should any illegal alien have standing to make demands on our government?

Please cut and paste the following letter and send it to your Senator TODAY, time is running out!

Dear Sen. Smith:
This is more than a letter of protest of efforts to provide amnesty for tens of millions of illegal immigrants currently residing in the U.S. It's a promise of a vote against any senator who supports such a plan.

It's a promise of financial support to candidates opposing any senator who supports such a plan.

It's a promise to expose this betrayal of the rule of law and the will of the people to the constituents of any senator who approves such legislation.

It's a promise to use any legal means necessary to thwart the future ambitions and aspirations of any senator who chooses to reward lawbreakers and punish law-keepers.

It's a promise to fight tooth and nail, even resorting to peaceful civil disobedience if necessary, to ensure that such legislation can never be carried out.

I don't expect you to read all of the "No Amnesty Pledge" letters currently flooding into your office. All you have to do is read one – and notice the volume of duplicate letters you are receiving, all sent by different American citizens who are thinking about this issue just as I am.

Frankly, we're concerned that what is being considered by the U.S. Senate would tear this country apart, break trust between the people and government and forever change the character of our nation and our communities.

Vote no on amnesty – or else!

Your name here

Check out this non-commital reply!

Dear Mr. Ritter:

Thank you for getting in touch with me to express your opposition to granting amnesty to illegal aliens. It's good to hear from you.

I understand your concern that granting amnesty to illegal immigrants could be unfair to those who seek to enter the United States legally. We should not penalize those people who have played by the rules.

The current visa quota system is out of date and waiting periods are appallingly long. We need to ensure that those who seek to become Americans are treated fairly. Part of that effort should be directed at curbing illegal immigration and being careful not to create a permanent underclass of workers who are never able to become U.S. citizens.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) apprehends millions of undocumented persons annually, and there are an estimated twelve million undocumented persons living in the United States. For this reason, I have consistently worked to make certain that our Border Patrol and Customs Service personnel have sufficient resources to secure our borders.

As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I have supported legislation to increase funding for the border patrol to upgrade checkpoints and stations.

Immigration reform must balance our concerns for protecting our borders with reforming the immigration process. The United States is a nation of immigrants and it is important that we honor that history. Like millions of other Americans, my great-grandparents came to this country to build a better life for themselves and for their children. Our nation is strengthened by its new citizens who make up the mosaic of our nation.

Again, thanks for contacting me. If I can be of service to you again in the future, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Barbara A. Mikulski
United States Senator
