Boyda argues against immigration bill in online conservative journal


Here are today's headlines from the Kansas congressional delegation:Rep. Nancy Boyda (D) ![][1][(Nancy Boyda commentary in Human Events) Kennedy-Bush Amnesty Wrong Approach:][2] Most of my constituents also oppose a repeat of the 1986 amnesty debacle. Kansans feel it's unfair to reward illegal immigrants with special visas or a path to legal citizenship, as is proposed under the Senate's current Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act. But that isn't to say that Kansans are opposed to all immigration. Most see America as a nation of immigrants, and they welcome new immigrants into our country -- as long as they enter legally, understand our culture and our language, and become productive members of our society. President Bush has publicly suggested that the Senate's Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act is the only sensible way forward on immigration. He has even implied that anyone who disagrees with the Senate's proposal is bigoted. He's wrong. Most of the people in my district, and I suspect most Americans, oppose the Senate's wrong-headed reforms. That isn't bigotry; it's just Kansas common sense.
