Are We Starting to Understand the Political Process?

The picture above may reflect who the general assembly is really representing for immigration reform. The following immigration legislation is being held hostage by committees. This list does not include the legislation for:

  1. Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights
  2. 2nd amendment legislation
  3. 10th amendment legislation

Or is this legislation being held up by Thom Tillis in the House, Phil Berger in the Senate and the elite power structure of the Republican Party? Review the following list from NC Fire and ask yourself if this was the change that you voted for in 2010. And where is the budget for our state that is supposedly taking everyone’s time in the general assembly from working on any other issues?

    Thanks for taking the time to write Senator Berger regarding illegal immigration reform. Sen. Berger supports these types of reform and expects these bills to receive full consideration once the budget deliberations have concluded. Thank you for sharing your concerns.

    Mike Rusher
    Director of Constituent Services
    Office of Senate President Pro Tempore
