Immigrants (far from our sight) quietly: ~ pick our food, ~ sew our clothes,
~ cut our meat, ~clean our offices, ~ build our homes, and
~ defend our nation.
Republican Congressman Jeff Denham is pushing a policy that’s worth considering: extend some respect to the children of illegals who serve in our military. Representative Denham (R) is pushing: ENLIST (Encourage New Legalized Immigrants to Start Training Act) a bill that offers permanent residency to undocumented immigrants who serve in the military, as an amendment to the current defense bill. Since Denham (R) is not on the House Armed Services Committee, his proposal is stuck.
Maybe our Congressional Reps and Republican Leadership will listen to us.
This proposal needs the support of Republican House leaders to get onto the House agenda. So far, this very good idea is stuck in the limbo of House-rules.
This seems a very fair action to help those who are willing to die to become fellow citizens.
We can help get this important idea brought to a vote in the House: Write to your congressional rep. urging them to support this amendment.
Complaining to each other won’t change things. Our leaders need to hear from us.
