Voice: Open letter to Congressman Gary Condit

July 13, 2001

Dear Congressman,

Now that you are an admitted adulterer lacking the moral compass and integrity to represent the great state of California in Congress, the only question remains, when are you going to resign?

President George Bush is doing a good job. He is strong, driven, moral and believes in his programs. He has my approval and belief there is a breathe of fresh air now that we have a president who is faithful to his wife, family and country. There is one thing, however, that has been disappointing. One thing that he and Vice President Cheney have skillfully avoided is the "I" word. The "I" word, what is that? It is immigration.

Our borders remain as porous as ever. International smuggling rings continue the work of smuggling people into the U.S. on a daily basis. Recently the new president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, suggested distributing 200,000 survival kits to those who attempt to cross the Southwest border. Our borders are not secure! President Bush supports only legal immigration, but why aren't we hearing more from the administration? All one has to do is look around and hazard a guess that 50 percent of who you see do not have papers; here illegally.

There is even a pending court case which would allow illegal aliens to be eligible for in-state tuition rates at colleges. When will this insanity stop? The Catholic bishops recently released a position paper offering support to both legal and illegal migrants. Is the church encouraging people to break the law? Let's get one thing straight, people here without papers are lawbreakers, pure and simple. Do not support lawlessness. Write your Congressman Duncan Hunter and tell him how you feel. Maybe if we can put enough pressure on him and the Presidency, more will be done.

Americans, take back your country. Insist that your elected federal official address this issue even if the Bush administration will not.
