"Our nation was born of immigrants, and those who come to the United States to work hard, obey the law, and become Americans have become productive and important members of our society. But while America is a nation of immigrants, she is also a nation of laws. We must send a message that our loyalty as a nation is to those who have made it great - those who respect our nations laws, seek legitimate ways into our country, and share our core belief that entry into the United States is not a right but a privilege."
-- Congressman Randy Forbes
