Representatives Take A Stand

Dear Members
Jeffrey T. Kuhner — World Tribune
Amnesty and the end of the Republican Party
Republicans may be committing a fatal error. During its proud history, the GOP has embraced heroic causes decrying slavery, preserving our union, defending modern capitalism, opposing Soviet communism and protecting unborn children. It is a seminal institution that has been pivotal in forging a free and prosperous America. If wiser heads do not prevail, however, the party is on the verge of committing suicide…

America needs more low-skilled immigrants like Chicago needs more gun laws. But you wouldn’t know that listening to the debate on “comprehensive immigration reform.”
The next amnesty bill ought to be titled, “The American Worker Impoverishment Act of 2013.”
Please consider emailing or calling these members of Congress
thanking them for their stand against AMNESTY
And the Senate

Smith: Senate Strikes Out on Immigration Proposal

Washington, Apr 16 -

Congressman Smith issued the below statement today criticizing the Senate’s amnesty proposal.

Congressman Smith: “It’s three strikes and you’re out for the Senate’s immigration proposal.

First, it legalizes almost everyone in the country illegally before the border is secured. This, of course, will encourage even more illegal immigration.

“Second, it puts the interests of foreign workers ahead of the interests of American workers. The immigration plan allows millions of illegal immigrants to compete with American workers, driving down their wages.

“And third, it treats illegal immigrants better than those who have played by the rules and waited their turn in line to come to the United States. Illegal immigrants get legal status immediately. The law-abiding—well, they just have to continue waiting.

“I don’t think the American people are going to give the Senate another turn at bat.”


House Republicans Take Stand Against Amnesty

After months of listening to pro-amnesty Members of Congress advocate for “comprehensive” immigration reform (a.k.a. amnesty) for the 11-12 million illegal aliens in the U.S., true immigration reformers in the House of Representatives began voicing their objections last week in anticipation of amnesty legislation to be introduced in the coming days.
The House Members held a press event Thursday to explain their opposition. “We held our powder dry but decided to come forward now because we are seeing the inertia [of immigration reform] and we are concerned about having this wash over us and not have the opportunity for constitutional conservatives in this country and in this Congress to have their voice heard,” said Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who is leading the lawmakers’ efforts. (Daily Caller, Apr. 11, 2013)
Rep. King was joined by Reps. Lou Barletta (R-PA), Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), Mo Brooks, (R-AL), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), and Louie Gohmert (R-TX), each Member making critical arguments against granting amnesty to illegal aliens.
