Letter: Klobuchar and Franken should not support legal status for illegal immigrants

To the editor,

It is truly shameful that our Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken are supporting legal status for criminal Mexican illegals. At a time when unemployment among American teenagers is near a record high of 25 percent, extra income is badly needed at many Minnesota households. There are a variety of jobs that should be filled by unemployed teens, not Mexican illegals.

There should be no amnesty deals for people who enter this country illegally, use fraud and dishonesty to gain employment and then send millions of dollars back to families in Mexico. Minnesota youths need jobs and your community needs the extra income these jobs produce. Contact Senators Franken and Klobuchar and urge them to vote against legal status for Mexican illegals. Tell them jobs should go to the teenager next door and not criminal Mexican illegals.
