House Conservatives Slam Immigration Bill
House conservatives criticized President Bush, accused the Senate of fouling the air, said prisoners rather than illegal farm workers should pick America's crops and denounced the use of Mexican flags by protesters Thursday in a vehement attack on legislation to liberalize U.S. immigration laws.
"Anybody that votes for an amnesty bill deserves to be branded with a scarlet letter A," said Rep. Steve King of Iowa, referring to a guest worker provision in the Senate measure.
The irony of it is that the farmers would still be relying on criminals! I say let them mechanize and we should relax our child labor laws.
It is heartening to hear statements from our true Representatives in the House.
