Dear Senator Isakson,
As a Georgia voter, I am far more involved in political action at the grass roots level than most. In light of the Amnesty Bill being broached for debate on the floor, I am believe I am about to become even more involved.
The Amnesty Bill, in particular the provisions for STEM workers, is an egregious betrayal of the American people. To dole out 180,000 blue chip, family feeding jobs to foreigners is lunacy. There is no shortage of STEM workers in the U.S. An elementary understanding of economics is enough to understand that when there is a shortage of STEM workers, STEM salaries will rise. When STEM salaries rise, job seekers will rush to fill the void by learning new skills or transferring existing skills to fill the void. Plain and simple. Given that salaries for STEM workers in the computer programming field are roughly $70K per year, one can hardly make the case that there is a STEM worker shortage. I consider $70K a year a modest income.
Even if there was a shortage, I wouldn’t advocate for anyone filling those STEM jobs other than our fellow country men! We have to support the home team. As of June 3, 2013 NumbersUSA.com has given your advocacy for support of American workers an “F”. This is sharp contrast to what you profess to stand for on your web page at,
I don’t know who to believe. That said, let me tell you what I believe.
I have no tolerance for any office holder who cannot wrap their head around the common sense need to provide Americans with decent jobs with decent salaries – particularly in light of this job less recovery. While I am sure you will vote against even bringing the Amnesty Bill to the floor for debate, if any Georgia congressman/senator votes in favor of the Amnesty Bill, I will do everything I can to remove them from office beginning at the primary level. I will vote for their opponent in every election that congressman/senator campaigns in. If their candidacy survives to the general election, I will vote for their opponent regardless of party affiliation. This issue is a deal breaker and is all I need to draw a clear line as to who I will and will not vote for.
Anybody, who sees doling out good paying American jobs to foreigners as a “solution” – may as well be a flag burning, communist. Please vote NO to Harry Reid’s motion to proceed when he brings the Amnesty Bill to the floor. Thank you.

All, please help spread the word by clicking the Twitter/Facebook buttons above. We are trying to kill this job stealing legislation and showing lots of opposition to it will do much to get the message across! Hopefully others can use this letter as a template when writing their people in congress.
