Those opposing this proposed amnesty - just a few the list is growing
The push for “comprehensive immigration reform” has not been without opposition. U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said yesterday, “The president has demonstrated he will only enforce the laws that he likes.”
Additionally, Congressman Steve Stockman, R-Texas, said, “I will not be supporting the Senate’s proposed ‘immigration reform’ should it reach the House. I cannot and will not support any immigration reform proposal that institutes an amnesty program or does not begin with a comprehensive plan to secure the borders.”
He continued, “It rewards law breaking and encourages a new flood of illegals, perpetuating the very problems it claims to solve.”
He also echoed the point of many other anti-illegal immigration activists by saying, “Our nation’s failed experiments with amnesty have proven it only encourages more illegals willing to wait it out for their turn at free citizenship.”

Congressman Lou Barletta opposes emerging immigration plan
But Barletta, who represents the 11th District, which includes parts of Monroe and Carbon counties, said politics should not be the driver because, in his view, Republicans won’t win the Hispanic vote either way.
“I hope politics is not at the root of why we’re rushing to pass a bill. Anyone who believes that they’re going to win over the Latino vote is grossly mistaken,” Barletta said. “The majority that are here illegally are low-skilled or may not even have a high school diploma. The Republican Party is not going to compete over who can give more social programs out. They will become Democrats because of the social programs they’ll depend on.”

Thanks in good measure to your hard work, it didn’t take long yesterday for voices of reason on Amnesty 2.0 to begin to emerge from Capitol Hill.

Among yesterday’s champions in standing against the amnesty were:

Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Minority Leader

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL)

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) — see below

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)

Senator David Vitter (R-LA)

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX)

Rep. Steve King (R-IA)

Rep. Peter King (R-NY)

It is so important that these Members receive positive feedback when they speak (Tweet, write, etc) against amnesty because it provides them incredible support and, often encourages other Members to do the same. Be sure to check your Action Board for special messages you can send to your Member when if they come out against Amnesty


WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) issued the following statement regarding today’s bipartisan immigration reform proposal:

I appreciate the good work that senators in both parties have put into trying to fix our broken immigration system. There are some good elements in this proposal, especially increasing the resources and manpower to secure our border and also improving and streamlining legal immigration. However, I have deep concerns with the proposed path to citizenship. To allow those who came here illegally to be placed on such a path is both inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly unfair to the millions of legal immigrants who waited years, if not decades, to come to America legally.


Maricopa County, Ariz. Sheriff Joe Arpaio denounced an immigration reform proposal pushed by eight senators as “amnesty” on Tuesday, but said he was happy Washington, D.C. is focusing on the issue.
Arpaio called the fact that immigration was being discussed at all “good,” but said the conversation should be taken to the Latino community.
“I think we should go to the Latino community and talk to those that are here legally and try to get the message across to them.” Arpaio said on CNN. “And where’s the fairness here? Why do you want to give amnesty to those people that came across our border illegally? You’ve got people all over the United States waiting for years and years to come into our great country? I look at it as a fairness issue also, not just a diplomatic, you know, political, law enforcement issue.”
