ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Am I alone in seeing the travesty that is occurring in Washington today?

The president and Congress are working on moving forward with so-called “immigration reform” and a revised Dream Act, yet they have absolutely stonewalled any extension for long-term unemployment benefits. They seek to cut food stamps for needy families, yet increase benefits for illegals.

Balancing the budget on the backs of poor Americans while moving to open our borders to even more illegal immigrants is unacceptable. If the budget is to be balanced, we must end aid to those entering our country illegally, not increase such benefits. This just hurts decent, hardworking American citizens.

It is time we sent the message to legislators that we will vote out of office any member of Congress who supports measures that help illegals at the expense of U.S. taxpayers. Let these politicians fear for their next meal for a while — and tell them clearly, “Americans first.”
