U.S. Rep. Barton’s immigration bill is nothing more than a first step to amnesty for 11 to 18 million illegals.

I do feel sorry, especially for the children.

However, should we not feel just as sorry for the 20 million American citizens who are out of work and can’t find a job?

A large number of them are our children just out of school.

Our priority should be to secure our border first and develop programs to create jobs and get this economy strong again.

— Donald Kneram, Fort Worth
