Your Letter: Do illegals deserve more rights than us?

Has anyone watched the news lately? Well it probably would not matter if you did. This story (and video) was only on one network (so far, other than the Internet). Nancy Pelosi (third in command to our president) is promoting illegal immigration. I am not kidding nor am I exaggerating.

Nancy Pelosi said illegal immigrants are very patriotic because they are taking care of our country's future. If you don't want to believe me then you can watch the video on She said this in support of Luis Gutierrez (congressman from Chicago) who is on a 17-day (taxpayer funded) tour of the country. The purpose of this tour is to "end the raids." He is talking about FBI raids to remove illegal aliens from the workplace. He even wrote thank you letters to people who came to the "meetings" saying: "I also want you to know that all the information that you have shared with us in writing today regarding yourself and family including your name, address, phone number and other relevant information is strictly confidential and will not be shared with any government agency." Isn't Gutierrez himself supposed to be part of a "government agency" that incidentally is supposed to be upholding the laws of this country?

If nothing else Gutierrez should at least pay for the paper and stamps he used for these letters instead of handing the bill to the taxpayer. I just love our government. What other government in the world would make every effort to make illegal aliens feel comfortable and safe while the doctor giving my son a sports physical (required for school sports) is required by law to ask me where I keep my guns in my own house? I wonder if he is required to ask that of illegal aliens? If so the illegal alien's information would probably be "strictly confidential and will not be shared with any government agencies." That way if an illegal alien is not storing his guns "properly" (or stockpiling them for a terrorist attack) he can feel safe knowing he's got Nancy Pelosi and Luis Gutierrez on his side while the Social Services are at my house taking my kids, disposing of my guns, and throwing me in jail all while cameras from every network in the country are rolling.
