Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Dear Editor:

Republican members of the U.S. House, including our Congressman Peter Roskam, should work hard to accomplish comprehensive immigration reform .  As a Republican voter and business-owner in Wheaton, I feel that we need to take ownership of this issue.  

Comprehensive immigration reform is a moral imperative as we cannot turn our backs on the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country.  These immigrants are mostly hard-working individuals dedicated to faith and family.  We can solve this issue with reasonable legislation to secure our border and require those who came here illegally to pay back taxes and fines, learn English, undergo a criminal background check and step to the back of the line.

It is Republicans who have everything to gain by solving such an important issue for millions of Americans and by bringing new members into the party.

"These immigrants are mostly hard-working individuals dedicated to faith and family." Agreed. But they are still ILLEGAL i.e CRIMINALS! I know criminals who are hard working and family oriented. They are still criminals. "Comprehensive" immigration reform is a fallacy. ENFORCE THE EXISTING LAWS. I too am a business owner and that is where we need to start. Employ illegals and pay a fine. Do it again and go to prison. Pretty simple. The 11 million (The real number is closer to 40 million) will self deport pretty darn quick.
