Letters to the Editor

Read bill before vote

To the Editor:

An open letter to my representative in Congress, Peter Roskam.

Shortly, the immigration bill will come up for a vote, and, eventually, when the House and Senate reconcile the bill, it will need to be voted on again.

I ask that you, as well as every other member of Congress, personally read and review every item of the bill before casting your votes.

As with Obamacare, we keep hearing about items in the bill that many congressional members, even the so-called Gang of Eight who sponsored the bill, are not aware of.

I feel that in voting one way or the other on the bill just because a party leader told you to is to ignore your responsibility to the your constituency.

You need to vote they way those who voted you into office want you to vote.

You will notice I am not asking you to vote either way. I am just asking you to make an informed decision and vote accordingly.
