Amnesty rewards people who violated our immigration laws. Proponents of the 1986 amnesty said that it would solve the problem once and for all, yet decades later the illegal alien population has quadrupled. The inevitable result of an amnesty will be millions more people coming into the U.S. illegally with the expectation that they too will be rewarded when the time comes.

Amnesty is inherently unfair to individuals around the world who are patiently waiting in line — often for years — to enter the U.S. legally. You spit in the face of every legal immigrant when you help ILLEGALS.
