This troubles me greatly, especially with our unemployment rate being as high as it currently is. This would make it much more difficult for those searching for employment as there would be much more competition. Secondly, if an illegal immigrant is allowed to become a U.S. citizen that easily, this would make them eligible to receive all U.S. benefits.

Senator, I hope that you consider what I have written and that this letter does not fall on deaf ears. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your time.
