FAIR Spokespeople Available To Comment On Illegal Alien Amnesty March In Washington

WASHINGTON, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the nation's leading advocacy group for immigration reform that protects the interests of American workers and taxpayers, issued the following statement in response to today's march by illegal aliens and their supporters:

"Today's march promotes amnesty for millions of people who broke our laws, not immigration reform. Immigration reform means fixing a broken policy that has cost millions of Americans a chance at better jobs and wages, and saddles American taxpayers with billions of dollars in social costs each year.

"The agenda being promoted by the people in the streets would do nothing to remedy a broken system. It would do nothing to ensure that our immigration laws are enforced in the future and that newly amnestied illegal aliens are not replaced by a new wave of illegal immigrants. It would do nothing to repair our bloated legal immigration system that admits excessive numbers of people without regard to their likelihood of succeeding in the United States.

"The American people witnessed the spectacle of lawbreakers taking to the streets demanding amnesty and other rewards before. After similar marches in 2006 and 2007, the American people overwhelmingly rejected amnesty disguised as immigration reform.

"Americans continue to reject amnesty as an answer to illegal immigration. They recognize that with high levels of unemployment and more people dropping out of the labor force than jobs being created, amnesty and the admission of still more foreign workers would deliver a lethal blow to the middle class. They understand that with federal deficits exceeding a trillion dollars annually, legalizing millions of poorly-skilled illegal aliens would be fiscally irresponsible.

"Illegal aliens and their supporters are poised to make a lot of noise, but as we have seen in the past, the American people will make their voices heard as legislation makes its way through Congress."
