Tough new immigration legislation

Call your senator and tell them to support this new immigration bill.

It is the toughest one ever proposed.

Some parts of the bill that are long-overdue:
* Block federal funding to cities that bar their police from asking about immigration status.
* Give the Department of Homeland Security the authority to use information from the Social Security Administration to target illegal immigrants.
* Require construction of 700 miles of fencing along the southern border, not including vehicle barriers.
* Impose sanctions on countries that refuse to repatriate their citizens.
* Deport any immigrant, legal or illegal, for one drunk-driving conviction.
* Enable local and state police to enforce federal immigration laws.

Let's get behind this bill and push like hell!

You forgot the part which mentioned mandatory jail time for individuals caught crossing the border illegally.

Our prisons are overcrowded already. What happens if this is enforced?

The 700-mile fence will not cut down on undocumented workers coming here. it is just a feel-good proposition by conservatives.

Nope this legislation is just supposed to make Americans feel good at the expense of those who do our dirty work.
