You would think the way our politicians are drafting and voting on immigration legislation our economy is red hot and flush with unfilled jobs.

In Washington the Gang of 8 is working on amnesty for 11 million or more people in our country illegally while our borders are still out of control. This gang of senators also wants to expand our guest worker program and bring in an increasing number of workers to fill empty jobs.

In Indiana, we have a state senator who proposed driver's licenses for illegal immigrants, and another who proposed a bill granting in-state tuition!

The reason our immigration system appears broken is because our politicians allow people here illegally to get away with breaking our laws and then reward them.

It’s time to take a stand and stop in-state tuition for illegal aliens in Indiana. Call (800) 382-9842 and tell your legislator to vote against SB 207.
