                     LISTEN TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

  (Mr. SMITH of Texas asked and was given permission to address the 
House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. SMITH of Texas. Madam Speaker, two-thirds of the American people 
want the border secured before other immigration reforms are 
implemented.
  The Senate bill ignores them.
  Most Americans feel that legalizing millions of illegal workers would 
take jobs away from U.S. citizens.
  The Senate bill ignores them.
  Most Americans want to stop illegal immigration.
  The Senate bill only reduces illegal immigration by 25 percent.
  Most Americans feel that legalizing millions of illegal immigrants 
would be a drain on government services.
  The Senate bill ignores them.

  Most Americans don't want to increase the number of immigrants beyond 
the very generous 1 million admitted every year.
  The Senate bill doubles that number.
  Those considering the Senate bill should stop, look, and listen to 
the American people.
