    Send it Back!!!! Correct it and Send it Back!!!!!!!

    I say send it back! I received another letter today. It looks very much like a letter I have received in the past from one of my Senators.

    I've absolutely had enough! I pulled out a red pen and I made corrections to the letter.

    comprehensive reform aka guest worker amnesty. I circled it and called it exactly what it was. Then I wrote don't you mean you support an enforcement only bill...

    international commerce - it got the big red mark and I called it commerce with Mexico

    I inserted "not" in support of a guest worker program because we currently have a program called the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. I added that to an irritating sentence about American jobs. Enforce our Laws.

    granting legal status - don't you mean path to citizenship

    Oh this letter is all red. I'm sending it back. I didn't like the answers I got. I'm going to put a grade of D on it and send it back.

    xanadu,

    Now you know what to do with it.

    That Senator did not write what I wanted to hear. I just had to let her know I was really thinking about her letter and her lame position on immigration.

    Re: Send it Back!!!! Correct it and Send it Back!!!!!!!

    My email from Sen Cornyn. I've emailed him so many times I lost count a couple of months ago.


    Dear Mr. and Mrs.

    Thank you for contacting me about immigration reform. The need to fix our broken system is clear, and the Senate is debating several proposals regarding one of the most important issues in recent memory.

    Immigration reform must concern itself with improving legal immigration, not about creating a new process that benefits only illegal aliens. For, although we are a nation of immigrants, we are also a nation of laws. If all immigrants must abide by the rule of law and must be treated equally, then we can reach a consensus on improving the legal process so that it meets the needs of our society, economy, and national security.

    In July 2005, in my role as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Border Security, Immigration, and Citizenship, I worked closely with Arizona Senator Jon Kyl to formulate the Comprehensive Enforcement and Immigration Reform Act of 2005 (S. 143. This legislation offers no amnesty and includes provisions to strengthen border security, ensure jobsite enforcement, and sensibly handle the undocumented population currently living within our borders. It is based on both the rule of law and the fundamental American principle of fairness.

    Unfortunately, before the Easter recess, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved an immigration proposal that I did not vote for and could not support. This proposal is a substitute amendment to Majority Leader Bill Fristís Securing Americaís Borders Act (S. 2454). After a delay in the immigration debate, a new bill offered by Senators Chuck Hagel and Mel Martinez, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006 (S. 2611), has come to the floor.

    Although I believe this compromise bill is an important step toward creating a workable solution to the problem, it contains several proposals with which I disagree. The most contentious of these is the decision to allow illegal immigrants who have lived in the United States for more than five years to enter directly into a program that leads to permanent citizenship. Justice is not served by allowing the people who have broken our laws to gain resident status ahead of would-be immigrants who have applied through the appropriate legal channels.

    Ultimately, the final immigration plan will be worked out in a conference committee that will reconcile the differences between the House of Representativesí immigration bill (H.R. 4437) and the Senate bill. I will serve on that committee, and I look forward to crafting immigration laws that will be respected by American citizens and upheld by all levels of government.

    As chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Border Security, Immigration, and Citizenship, I will continue working to curtail illegal immigration and its effects on the State of Texas while ensuring that immigrants following the rule of law have an equal opportunity to realize their potential as they become productive members of our society. To better acquaint you with the reforms I support, I have compiled detailed summaries of S. 1438 and other relevant information on my website.

    I appreciate the opportunity to represent the interests of Texans in the United States Senate. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.

    Sincerely,

    JOHN CORNYN
    United States Senator

    If you really want to get their attention make a sign that says;

    DO NOT RE-ELECT SENATOR HUTCHINSON

    And then go to her office and walk around outside her office with the sign during rush hour. (as to maximize exposure)

    We did that with a congressman and his aide came running out to tell us that the congressman PERSONALLY wants to meet with us this afternoon!

    We played it like this.
    I said NO I don't want to talk to him. He ignored my letters and now I don't want to talk to him. He then asked some of my associates if they would be willing to meet with him and some said yes.
