Attending a town hall meeting is the perfect opportunity to voice your concerns on immigration by telling your Member of Congress that you want immigration enforcement, not another amnesty.
We know that members of the Gang of Eight are purposely waiting until after the Easter Recess to release a bill. Earlier this month, the Associated Press reported:[Senator Lindsey] Graham said it wasn’t a good idea to release the bill before a two-week recess. “You don’t want to leave it hanging out for two weeks to get shot up,” he said. The legislation is certain to be controversial and may spark passionate opposition from lawmakers’ constituents…
Fearing the backlash they will receive at these meetings for supporting an amnesty, the Senate and House immigration working groups have indicated they are waiting until after they return from this break to introduce legislation. Make sure you do not let them get away with such evasive tactics and hold them accountable while they are home!

- Granting amnesty to the nation’s 11-12 million illegal aliens and importing more labor through guest worker programs hurts the 22 million Americans who are unemployed and looking for full time work.
- Granting amnesty to illegal aliens rewards law-breaking and is unfair to those coming to the U.S. the legal way.
- Granting amnesty will cost taxpayers trillions of dollars, especially following the implementation of ObamaCare.
- Granting amnesty is not a solution to our nation’s immigration problems. Instead, our borders must be secured and our immigration laws enforced.
