Today I have a new column out in Townhall.com discussing my thoughts on the “Gang of Eight’s” so-called immigration reform bill.
Here is an excerpt:
“America is a nation of immigrants, built by immigrants and we need to honor that heritage by fixing our broken immigration system, while upholding the rule of law and championing legal immigration,” said Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in a statement last week when offering an amendment to the Schumer-Rubio immigration bill.
Cruz, the son of a legal Cuban immigrant, is absolutely correct.
Immigration is the foundation of this great nation. Millions of immigrants from all over the world have flocked here to better their lives. Anyone who comes here and becomes American can make it if they work hard and realize their full potential. That is why legal immigration must be encouraged.
Sadly, lawmakers are more interested in trading our sovereignty for votes and political favors a la amnesty.
