If there was any doubt that the new GOP leadership is anything but the best thing that could have happened to the Party, this press release blows it away completely! I think that most if not all of you have a gut feeling about this legislation. I haven't read the thing, but from what I've been able to gather, it just doesn't give me the warm and fuzzy feeling that it's going to work any better than than previous attempts to reform the law. And it takes guts, as the leader of a state GOP party, to come out and say so. Dr. Pelura and his team are effectively immune from Removable Spine Syndrom. Let their blood be used to manufacture a vaccine.
Immigration Bill Takes Us In The Wrong Direction
ANNAPOLIS—Members of the United States Senate return today from Memorial Day recess and will be debating the Secure Borders, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Reform Act of 2007. Chairman James Pelura of the Maryland Republican Party made the following statement:
"We all agree that our current immigration system is broken and needs to be reformed. However, the immigration proposal currently being considered would be a move in the wrong direction. Our nation needs an immigration bill that respects the rule of law, makes border security a priority, and does not grant amnesty. The immigration bill being considered by the Senate would grant benefits to those who have willfully broken the law, and in some cases, provides illegal immigrants rights not even afforded to U.S. citizens. Plain and simple – that is wrong. This wonderful land of opportunity is the envy of the world and people risk their lives to come here. We, as a nation, should encourage those seeking the American dream to follow the rules to citizenship and then fully participate in all this land has to offer."
