Immigration reform a bid for votes

July 25, 2013 

Our representatives in Washington, D.C., will do anything, break any existing law to get a vote. I'm talking about changing a federal law that says to become a U.S. citizen you must wait in line, pass the test and learn English and hopefully assimilate to love this country like the millions that have come here and enjoy the many benefits.

I'm talking about both parties. I am not against immigration — new people have entered America and helped in many ways — but not allowing millions just for more votes.

The American people should vote on term limits for Congress, two terms for the Senate and four terms for the House of Representatives. Of course they would find a judge to overturn the people's vote like many politicians and different interest groups have done in the past. We can only pray that we could live long enough to see term limits for these politicians.
