How One Activist Can Make A Tremendous Difference



How One Activist Can Make A Tremendous Difference

“He says the United States is filling up with immigrants who do not respect the law or the American way of life. He refers to Latino groups as ‘the tribalists,’ saying they seek to impose a divisive ethnic agenda. Of his many adversaries, he says: ‘The illegal alien lobby never changes. It’s the Wall Street wing of the Republican Party joining forces with the Chamber of Commerce, the far left and the Democrats in an effort to expand cheap labor and increase voting for the Democratic Party,'” the New York Times writes.

“D. A. King, who quit his job as an insurance agent a decade ago to wage a full-time campaign against illegal immigration in Georgia, is one reason this state rivals Arizona for the toughest legal crackdown in the country. With his Southern manners and seersucker jackets, he works the halls of the gold-domed statehouse, familiar to all, polite and uncompromising.”

Another Challenger for Lindsay Graham

“Another GOP primary challenger to South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is making it official. State Sen. Lee Bright has readied his campaign website and is inviting supporters to sign up for an alert when he posts his official announcement video. The campaign advertises a full website ‘coming soon,'” Politico reports.

“Graham drew his second official challenger, Citadel graduate Nancy Mace, last week. Businessman Richard Cash has also launched a campaign against Graham. The Republican senator has been under fire from conservatives who paint him as too willing to compromise with Democrats on issues including taxes and immigration.”

The August End Run Around GOP Base on Immigration

“One difference between the two major parties is that Democrats harness the energy of their base to fight legislative battles; Republicans make end-runs around their base to obviate their energy. Let’s examine the GOP’s strategy for dealing with immigration. Instead of harnessing their energy to fight amnesty and hang it around the necks of Democrats in the red state electoral landscape next year, they are trying to outflank the conservative base with subterfuge in order to pass amnesty. National Journal has an inside story of the strategy,” says Daniel Horrowitz at Red State.

    Amnesty is wrong and guarantees more illegal immigration. The DREAM ACT amnesty especially encourages more destructive and costly illegal immigration. The DREAM ACT absolves aliens of their fundamental responsibility as parents to do the right thing and not to break the law. It attempts to shift the onus onto American society for fixing a mess aliens made for themselves and their children by making a giant mess for for our entire nation via amnesty. The DREAM ACT sends this message to people around the world thinking of entering the U.S. illegally or coming here and overstaying their visas: Be sure to BRING THE KIDS. They will be immune from our immigration laws and will eventually be given U.S. citizenship. Later on they can sponsor you for green cards. It is time to stand up and fight against Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, Cantor, and the Gang of Eight who are pushing this special interest backed mass amnesty. We must fight as though U.S. citizenship, sovereignty, and the rule of law were at stake….because it is.

    Mass Immigration Is Unsustainable on

    That Daniel Horowitz piece is depressing. Plenty of Republicans are determined to sell out but want to do it stealthily. They have ZERO principles when it comes to immigration law. Thus, our only tool against them is fear. People have to take action and hope they listen although they seem so determined to stab us in the back it may not work this time. If they do betray us, they need to know they are throwing votes away–forever. Good luck as Democrat-lite and watch as your base abandons you in droves. A pro-America third party would put the GOP out of business so fast it would be breathtaking.

    Julia Preston of the NYT refers to “the broken immigration system.” Typical bias.

    I hate the mockery. How is it that now some ungrateful children with a system that has given absolutely everything for free, from your state pregnatal, studies, food in their schools better than many people nosteamericana tables now enjoy parliamentary immunity?

    From where you can enter and leave the country without papers as Peter in his house?

    That is a shameless mockery and abuse and a lousy example to the rest of the world that takes years waiting their turn

    Is that neither the Parliament enjoy privileges at the misnamed dreamers.

    Should be at least most humble

    The Fascist NWO State has Come to America

    If you’re a care giver in Washington State and recently fired with no apparent evidence, your SEIU union says “there’s nothing we can do”.

    This time I agree with SEIU. There’s nothing you can do.

    The DSHS appeals court is akin to a “kangaroo court” or ***** mob. Attorneys can’t help you either; when responses, objections and due process is flushed down the toilet.

    IMO, its MASS FIRING of legal Americans to make room for more $11/hr immigrants.

    This isn’t America anymore.
