No amnesty for illegal immigrants

President Barack Obama no longer has to worry about re-election. He is now free to pursue his so called "comprehensive immigration reform" or amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Congress must stop any illegal immigrant amnesty proposals from the Obama administration now.

Don't let Congress ignore the plight of the American worker. We should not believe any lame excuses for rewarding illegal immigrants with American jobs.

The willingness to pass a mass amnesty for 12 million illegal immigrants must not come about as long as there are 20 million Americans who can't find a full-time job, and allowing 12 million illegal immigrants to join the legal work force would only make things in the job market worse.

Let's not let the narrow results from one election cause any rash decisions on amnesty for Illegal immigrants. Amnesty should not be the answer and must be ruled out.

This issue would have a definite bad affect on Maryland since we are now already overrun by illegal immigrants.
