We need true statesmen to represent us in Congress. The citizens of the United States always have and always will have differing opinions about major policy directions. The honorable task for our representatives is to find a resolution for those very difficult issues, a step forward that is acceptable to the vast majority of those they represent. If a faction is perceived to win on an issue, then our country of diverse opinion actually loses. We need able statesmen to will represent all of us, not just a faction.
The unmanaged immigration situation has continued to grow for decades with no statesmen yet to do what we the people need done. Please communicate with your representatives and ask them to devote their efforts to find and support the statesmen in Congress who have the ability to resolve the immigration situation.
