The Concord (NH) Monitor reports on a very anti-immigrant resolution being considered in the New Hampshire House of Representatives that was instead modified to be one that promoted solving immigration problems:
The original resolution, sponsored by state Rep. Jordan Ulery, a Hudson Republican, stated: "Amnesty rewards illegal aliens for breaking our laws," and continued, "Amnesty would allow illegal-alien gang members, criminals, and terrorists to be eligible to become citizens of the United States."
The new resolution notes, "it would be impractical, if not impossible to expel the estimated 12 million people who have entered this country illegally." It concludes with a resolution urging Congress "to develop and pass a comprehensive immigration reform program that provides a path to legal permanent resident status."
"I was dumbfounded," said Kris Schultz, New Hampshire state director for Reform Immigration for America, who testified against Ulery's resolution. "This was a complete 180."
