Dear Senator Frist,

I would like to express some thoughts on your recent immigration policy. I am a registered Republican in Tennessee, I have voted for you on every chance that I have been given. I am extremely disappointed in your recent amnesty idea, the solution to our growing problem is not to ignore the situation by essentially saying it is ok that to break the law. I and many others are tired and disappointed with the way our senators are handling the illegal immigration problem, my vote counts, I am a natural born citizen of this great country, I love my country and the law of this land, and feel as if all citizens wether citizen by birth, or by following our legal immigration procedure have been violated. Please listen to what we are saying as our votes are all that we have left.

Respectfully,



SigSaurP228

Dear Friend:

Thank you for contacting me regarding comprehensive immigration reform. It is an honor to serve you as the Majority Leader of the United States Senate and a privilege to respond to your concerns.

Today there are 10 to 12 million undocumented aliens living in the United States, and many Americans believe that our immigration policies are in need of serious review. As a nation of immigrants who honor the rule of law, I believe we must make it a priority to secure our borders as a part of any effort to reform our immigration policies.

In order to address this issue I have introduced S. 2454, the Securing America’s Border Act, a billion-dollar down payment that focuses on border security and interior law enforcement and will enable the Senate to pursue comprehensive immigration reform. My proposal will add resources to border protection, give our immigration-enforcement officials new legal tools, invest in physical barriers and electronic surveillance equipment at the borders and make it easier for employers to ensure that they hire only citizens and legal residents. We need to make these investments because maintaining a secure border ranks among the most fundamental missions of any sovereign nation

While our country needs security at our borders in order to slow the flow of illegal immigration and enhance our national security, we still need to do more. A majority of the people who enter America illegally, after all, come here to work. Among other things, the full Senate will need to address ways we can balance security interests with our economy's labor needs. In the long term, our government needs to work on policies that encourage democracy and prosperity abroad which will also address our immigration crisis by reducing the number of people who feel that coming to the United States is their only option.

Let me be clear, I do not support amnesty, but I do understand the labor challenges facing our nation, and, as Majority Leader, I will continue to work with my colleagues to address this critical problem in the 109th Congress. On the basis of sound immigration policy, we can protect our borders, and continue to welcome legal immigrants, and in doing both we will improve the lives of all Americans.

Sincerely,


William H. Frist, M.D.
Majority Leader
United States Senate



Gee thanks for the cookie cutter response, of course I didn't really expect anything more I may send one more e-mail however, this time I won't be selecting a prefilled subject.

Same letter I got in reply to my e-mail

one way to take of the labor problem is to kick all illegals out and let them go thru the proper channels to get here.
then make the people on welfare to take the jobs that are open and work for those welfare checks!

He's talking like he has a degree in economics. I'm interested in the phrase, "balancing our security interests with our labor needs". To me they are two separate things. If there's fairness to present citizens/taxpayers I'm not caring too much how many "illegals" come here legally. To even pretend that present security interferes with business is ludicrous, especially when we're in this War on Terrorism. If you have no handle on illegal immigration you have NO handle on security, it's just a version of the "Emperor Has No Clothes".

Send him some bricks.

Anyone else up for failing a class action law suit against the companies that hire illeagls?

Put the cost of thier crims on their doorsteps.

Unfair business practice
Illegal Bussiness practices
Economic damage to the US
Emotional Stress
Pain and Suffereing

Just a thought

Well see what he has to say when about a million bricks show up in the mail in a few weeks.

That email was worded well, but it seemed about 1-5 bricks shy to me...

This is what I've been telling folks. I am absolutely baffled at how we pay people to sit at home and not work and then allow criminals from other countries to break our laws and do work that the people on welfare should be doing.

Does anyone know what the stated purpose is for welfare?

What I read was, "Yes, amnsety is wrong, yes illegal immigration is wrong
I am a vote whore with no balls, they got us by the shorthairs
and there isn't anything anybody can do."



Civil War in 4 years. look for it

BTW I am still waiting for the scripted line of shit from Mel Martinez.
Founding Fathers are weeping in their graves. Uncle Ted was right.
We are witnessing history. The defeat of the USA without a single shot being fired.
