Now that President Obama has jammed health care down our throats, he wants to saddle our country with billions more debt by providing amnesty for 20-plus million uneducated, unhealthy illegals.

I have nothing against legal immigration; however, our economy is fragile right now and cannot afford one more expense.

Under tremendous pressure from Obama and other radical, pro-illegal groups, Congress is trying another closed door, fast track amnesty bill â€" HR 4321 â€" which would grant citizenship to 20-plus million illegals and their families. Make no mistake, the real purpose of this bill is to increase their voting block with a staggering 20-million legalized illegals in their quest to retain majority control of Congress. Also, given amnesty, they will be given "Obamacare." How much additional cost to the American people?

We have an overwhelming majority of Americans who have soundly rejected amnesty in the past; however, if we don't move fast by inserting pressure on our representatives to vote "No" on HR 4321, we could lose this battle. Obama has absolutely no concern about what the American people want. If this bill passes, the liberals or socialists will have a very large voting block that will be very difficult to beat. And quite frankly, that is their plan.

While we have always had drugs, rape and murder, our government has turned a blind eye to our border crisis â€" increasing our problems from 25 to 40 percent, depending on the crime. This is evidenced by over 30 percent illegals in our prisons and 15 to 25 percent in many of our jails. Seldom seen crimes in America, such as kidnapping, are rising at an alarming rate. Home Security Secretary and former governor of Arizona Janet Napolitano seems totally uninterested in securing our borders. She doesn't even want to discuss it. I don't think her boss does either. Just get them the votes and spend baby spend!

As Dr. Martin Luther King once said, "Our lives begin to end when we are silent about things that matter." Now is the time for all of us to speak out about the things that matter in our government, things that are important to all Americans.

Don't forget to vote â€" our only chance to stop this administration.
