The other gang speaks: Diaz-Balart, House immigration group comment on Gang of 8 plan

The following is from a press release:

Washington, D.C. – A bipartisan group of eight Members from the U.S. House of Representatives released the following statement today regarding their efforts for comprehensive reform of the U.S. immigration system:

“Americans want to see the nation’s broken immigration system fixed, and they know it will take bipartisanship to solve this problem in a sensible and rational way. This week, a bipartisan group of Senators stepped forward to introduce their proposal, and we applaud their effort.

"We are also working on a good faith, bipartisan effort in the House. We believe we will soon agree on a reasonable, common-sense plan to finally secure our borders and strengthen our economy, with a tough but fair process that respects the rule of law so immigrants can contribute to our country.

"While we have made substantial progress, we continue to work diligently towards a bill that keeps America strong, competitive and true to our values.” — Reps. Xavier Becerra (CA), John Carter (TX), Mario Diaz-Balart (FL), Luis Gutierrez (IL), Sam Johnson (TX), Raul Labrador (ID), Zoe Lofgren (CA), and John Yarmuth (KY) # # #

Every single one of those people have been totally supportive of the Illegal Aliens and the idea of the American
Taxpayer spending billions to trillions of dollars while they provide amnesty. This article is correct.

Cost of amnesty for illegal aliens... 2.6 trillion.

And, by the way, not one single one of the House Members that signed this article have ever worked for the good of the American Taxpayers. They only work for the illegal aliens.
