Rep. Issa Opposes Senate Amnesty Plan
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) today made the following statement on the announced Senate immigration plan:
"The Senate proposal outlined today contains a number of welcome enforcement provisions, immigration reforms, and strategies for addressing guest worker needs and stopping illegal immigration. These provisions, however, are compromised by a sweeping amnesty proposal that places illegal aliens in line ahead of those around the world who wait patiently in their home countries to emigrate to the United States legally. Many immigrants currently come to the U.S. legally to fill temporary job needs - a blanket grant of permanent status to those here illegally makes little sense."
