Why You Need to Remind House Members to Oppose Amnesty

“GOP activists should also keep in mind what they can change and what they can’t. And at the moment, the thing they can change is not Obamacare but immigration reform,” says Byron York at the Examiner.

“If August goes quietly on the immigration front, some Republican lawmakers may return to Washington with the sense that voters back home don’t really mind that immigration reform goes forward. And then it will. If, on the other hand, lawmakers hear expressions of serious opposition at town meetings, their conclusion will be just the opposite. And reform will likely go down to defeat.”

Zuckerberg goes public with backing of immigration reform

“Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spoke out publicly in favor of immigration reform for the first time Monday. It’s an issue he’s been working on behind the scenes for several months. The 29-year-old billionaire made his remarks in San Francisco at the debut screening of “Documented,” an autobiographical documentary by activist and journalist Jose Antonio Vargas,” CBS News says.

“Wearing his trademark hoodie and sneakers, Zuckerberg disputed the notion that he and other Silicon Valley leaders are just trying to secure more H1B visas for high-tech workers.”

Evangelical Groups Promise to “Denounce” Amnesty Opponents

“‘We are announcing the Gospel that welcomes the stranger and we will denounce those that block immigration reform.’
Some would call them fighting words; others, a declaration of faith. They rang out recently within shouting distance of the U.S. House of Representatives, at the church where I serve as pastor, as over 300 leaders gathered for the ‘Evangelical Immigration Table Day of Prayer and Action for Immigration Reform,'” the Washington Post reports.

“House leaders of both parties would have done well to come witness the breadth and depth of support for immigration reform: Pentecostals and Baptists; Mega-church leaders and small congregation ministers: Republicans and Democrats; natives of Arizona, North Carolina, Indiana, Ohio, Virginia, and other states; and African Americans, Whites, Cuban Americans and other Latinos born and raised in the United States.”

    Twenty-nine year old billionaire and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerman, says he has been working behind the scenes for several months on a huge expensive advertising campaign to convince Americans to support ‘immigration reform’ legislation What a selfless civic service this ‘boy wonder’ is performing. Right on! Well, I have been working for several decades on real “immigration reform’. The truth is that to most Americans like myself, ‘immigration reform’ means ending costly and destructive mass illegal immigration once and for all. It does not mean granting amnesty, legal status, and U.S. citizenship to foreigners who have broken our labor, tax, identity theft, and immigration laws. I have also been working to prevent people like Zuckerman with a ‘special interest’ from lining their own pockets for most of my life. Why do these borderless billionaires have so little regard or sympathy for their fellow Americans? Why do they continue to lobby Congress to pass legislation to flood our country with low skilled and high skilled foreign workers that will depress all wages and force unemployed Americans to compete with them for scarce jobs?. Our immigration system is broken. Our nation desperately needs a strong, sensible and respectable legal immigration system. If Zuckerman is successful we never will.

    Please keep calling your Reps and tell them to oppose any form of amnesty and that NOTHING must go to Conference with the Senate — for if it does, that means the Senate mass amnesty bill.

    If they support any immigration legislation going to Conference, then they support mass amnesty. It’s this simple.

    Zuckerberg is just another greedy, amoral, uninformed, middle-class hating, cheap labor-loving billionaire who has no allegiance to our country.

    p.s. please delete your Facebook account.

    Comic relief of the day. Mark “Zuckerberg disputed the notion that he and other Silicon Valley leaders are just trying to secure more H1B visas for high tech workers”. Too funny, since that is EXACTLY what this bill does. Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, and other tech billionaires don’t have full enough plates apparently. They want the few crumbs you have on yours.
