LoBiondo Reaffirms Opposition to Amnesty
As the Senate continues debate on immigration legislation which includes granting legal status to the estimated 12 million illegal aliens in the United States, U.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) today issued the following statement:
"The legislation before the Senate this week - which would grant automatic legal status to those who illegally entered our country and break our laws to remain here - is the very definition of amnesty. If the amnesty principles remain as proposed, the Senate should and must defeat the bill. I would be the first to vote against an amnesty bill should it be presented to the House of Representatives."
"As I have always said, I firmly believe that any proposed solution must include an effective, fair temporary guest worker program that remains true to its name: those who come to the United States should only be here on a temporary basis and return home through a program that is truly enforceable."
