In this installment on the STOTU we turn to Immigration issues. [Click this link for the Prepared Remarks.]
Didn’t we say NO already Didn’t we repeat it loudly and clearly? And when they tried to ram the “DREAM Act” down our throats we shouted our refusal to accept it. Obamination will not accept a negative answer any more than Shrub did.
Obamination won’t even complete the fence, which drug lords are using a catapault to overcome. Mexicans are not the only wet backs. Numerous Muslim terrorists are mingling with them but Obamination does not give a damn. He has his Secret Service to protect himself, the rest of us don’t matter to him.
Illegal immigrants are more likely to organize gangs of street thugs and found Meth labs than to engage in scientific research or found legitimate enterprises. Masses of illegal immigrants are threatening the financial viability of our schools and hospitals.
We need to say it again, to repeat it with higher volume and increased profanity. We must make the newly elected and installed majority in the House of Representatives fully aware of our absolute, principled and permanent objection to alien amnesty schemes. Send this link to your Congressman:

Numbers USA is campaigning for four vital amendments which will help to save American jobs from illegal aliens. Following our surprising victories in the Senate, the LibTards are making an all out effort to kill these amendments. Roy Beck asks that you view this short video presentation which explains the amendments and the conflict swirling around them. Please watch this video and sign the petition immediately. The petition already has more than 45,000 signatures, but more are needed to convince congressional leaders of the overwhelming popular support behind these amendments.
You can help by signing the petition and urging your family, friends and associates to sign it.
- The Sessions E-Verify amendment.
- The DeMint fence amendment.
- The Vitter no-match amendment.
- The Grassley E-Verify amendment.
See this blog post for the details of how the LibTards will try to kill this vital legislation.
The Sessions andt. gives E-Verify permanent authorization, removing it from the chopping block where it currently awaits extinction. It mandates that a company with a federal contract must screen all new hires through E-Verify. It also mandates that all people working on the gov’t. contract must be verified.
The Demint amdt. requires completion of the 700-mile fence along the Mexican border by the end of 2010.
The Vitter amdt. activates a no-match notification system that informs employers of employees whose Social Security numbers do not match their records.
The Grassley amdt allows businesses to voluntarily run all existing employees through E-Verify.
Each of those vital amendments will be stripped from the bill in the reconciliation process unless we apply extreme pressure. The first step is to sign the petition. The second step is to exhort your friends to sign. The third step is to send a strongly worded email to your Representative & Senators exhorting them to support the amendments.
Similar provisions were placed in the House Stimulus bill last fall and secretly removed in the reconciliation committee. We must prevent that from happening again.
If you will join Numbers USA, you will discover how easy it is to send a fax to your Senators. Phoning them is the only better way to make them feel the heat.
Grassfire.org reports that President Obama intends to begin the big push for illegal alien amnesty June 8. Grassfire is mounting a petition campaign to spur and express public outrage at President Obama’s shameful treachery.
Of course, Grassfire is building a contact list and soliciting donations in connection with the petition, that is par for the course. But they do provide a free and easy way to communicate our disgust with the Congress when they deliver the petitions.
Another organization, Numbers USA, has a very informative web site that provides most of the intellectual ammunition needed to fight “comprehensive immigration reform:. Numbers USA has frequent phone & fax campaigns we can participate in and the faxes are free.
When you are ready to contact your Representative & Senators, you can easily send them an email even if you don’t know their names. Congress.org, given your zip code, will look them up for you and set up an easy to use email form.
It is our country, our jobs, our schools and our health care system at stake. President Obama wants to convert the illegal aliens into citizens in hopes that Hispanics will become a permanent Democrat voting block. We must rise up as one, united, with a loud voice yelling “Hell NO“!!! If you want the fence completed, the borders patrolled, existing immigration laws & rules enforced and amnesty schemes abandoned permanently, then start your faxes and emails flowing to Congress and the White House and keep them flowing. Join the growing chorus of demands for rational, common sense government. The country you save will be our own.
W.A.M. ALERT –DREAM ACT as usual means the opposite:
A NIGHTMARE in the works – it will take all of US to stop it!
Legislators Plan Unfair Citizenship Benefits & Unwarranted Advantages to Non-Citizens:
Many activists are already aware that our crazy Congress is currently attempting
to increase immigration rights and citizenship benefits plus other perks – virtually overnight-
to illegal alien youths (defined to age 35!) on the claim that it is not their fault their parents
broke the law!
The insanity of this illogical conclusion can only be construed as a cover for building the un-Democratic
party’s base by up to another 35 million! This figure is based on current projections of the number
of “students” and their families who will apply and receive rapidly implemented rights and benefits
from this bill, if it is signed into law. Because these measures are so unscrupulous – and politically
motivated – W.A.M. has prepared a special NO DREAM ACT PETITION plus ACTION TOOLS!
See informative W.A.M. Take A Stand summary of this bill here including Important Local
Meetings Schedule – which Congress is using to inflate the perception of public support for
these measures. These meetings have not been publicly promoted, specifically, to keep
DREAM ACT opponents away!
It is now up to each and all of us to participate in strategic W.A.M. ACTIONS to stop
this nightmare from happening. Together, we still stand a real chance of blocking
these measures – if we ALL join together in these concerted ACTIONS now.
There is no time for hesitation or delay – with your help, W.A.M. can
impact and influence this outcome before Capitol Hill sails it through-
which they aim to do upon completion of their “spring break.”
Petition to President: It is not ‘UN-AMERICAN’ to open jobs for jobless Americans through immigration enforcement
At a San Francisco rally against immigration laws, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that it is un-American to use types of enforcement to drive illegal aliens out of U.S. jobs. She has also called for an end to ICE’s worksite operations. Coming from one of the nation’s highest ranking public officials, this is very disturbing. The small amount of worksite enforcement over the last 18 months has proven itself especially effective in providing jobs for unemployed Americans, including by frightening non-targeted businesses into hiring only legal workers.
We call on you to affirm that a primary purpose of immigration laws is to protect American workers — particularly our most vulnerable citizens. And we urge you to re-state your oath to carry out these laws of our country to your fullest ability. Please show your commitment to putting especially low-skill American workers back on the job by giving your full support to ICE agents and adopting regulations requiring all federal contractors to use E-Verify.
I have signed the petition. I urge my fellow citizens to sign it and to join Numbers USA and actively express their desire to support legal immigration. Given the current balance of political power, the fence won’t be built, many more illegal aliens will join the millions already here, accompanied by terrorists crossing the open border and they will be given citizenship and become a permanent part of the Democrat’s voting block. That outcome can only be prevented if we apply intense political pressure. I view this petition as a good start.
I received this email from his campaign today. I hope that those who opposed Kennedy-McCain will throw equal support to Congressman Tancredo’s alternative legislation.
Just a little while ago, I held a press conference at the U.S. Capitol announcing my “Overdue Immigration Reform Act of 2007.”
A couple of weeks ago, you and I and literally millions of American patriots killed the Kennedy-McCain-Bush amnesty bill. Something Kennedy, McCain, Bush & Company kept saying was “if you have a better idea, put it forward.”
That’s exactly what I did this morning!
My multi-point bill addresses visa entry rules, the curse of “birthright citizenship,” sanctions against employers who hire illegal aliens, and a whole range of border security issues. I encourage you to go to our campaign website, www.teamtancredo.org, to review my entire legislative package.
My friend, we have the momentum with us in the battle over illegal immigration!
We have killed amnesty, at least for this year. Now, we need to keep the pressure on and move Congress and the nation fully behind serious immigration reform that enforces our existing immigration laws, secures our borders and does not grant amnesty to illegal aliens!
The above was received in an email from Norm.

Canada At Wit’s End With Illegal Immigration of American Liberals
DATELINE; 7/7/07 Illegal Immigration Concerns Canadians
The flood of American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified recently, sparking calls for increased patrols to stop the illegal immigration.
The unflinching arrogance of the Bush Administration is prompting the exodus among liberal citizens who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, and agree with Bill O’Reilly.
Canadian border farmers say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, animal-rights activists, and Unitarians crossing their fields at night. “I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn,” said Manitoba.
Farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota. The producer was cold, exhausted and hungry. “He asked me if I could spare a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didn’t have any, he left. Didn’t even get a chance to show him my screenplay.”
In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them So, he tried installing speakers that blare Rush Limbaugh across the fields. “Not real effective,” he said. “The liberals still got through, and Rush annoyed the cows so much they wouldn’t give milk”
Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals near the Canadian border, pack them into Volvo station wagons, drive them across the border and leave them to fend for themselves. “A lot of these people are not prepared for rugged conditions,” an Ontario border patrolman said. “I found one carload without a drop of drinking
water. They did have a pleasant little Napa Valley cabernet, though.”
When liberals are caught, they’re sent back across the border, often wailing loudly that they fear retribution from conservatives. Rumors have been circulating about the Bush administration establishing re-education camps in which liberals will be forced to drink Bud beer and watch NASCAR.
Liberals have turned to sometimes-ingenious ways of crossing the border. Some have taken to posing as senior citizens on bus trips to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs. After catching a half-dozen young vegans disguised in powdered wigs, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses and quizzing the supposed senior-citizen passengers. “If they can’t identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Walk Show, we get suspicious about their age,” an official said.
Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are creating an organic-broccoli shortage and renting all the good Susan Sarandon movies. “I feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy just can’t support them,” an Ottawa resident said. “How many art-history majors does one country need?”
In an effort to ease tensions between the United States and Canada, Vice President Dick Cheney met with the Canadian ambassador and pledged that the administration would take steps to reassure liberals, a source close to Cheney said. “We’re going to have some Peter, Paul & Mary concerts. And, we might put some endangered species on postage stamps. The president is determined to reach out.”
The Senate drove a stake yesterday through President Bush’s plan to legalize millions of unlawful aliens, likely postponing major action on immigration until after the 2008 elections.
After the stinging political setback, Bush sounded resigned to defeat.
“Legal immigration is one of the top concerns of the American people, and Congress’ failure to act on it is a disappointment,” he said in Newport, R.I. “A lot of us worked hard to see if we couldn’t find common ground. It didn’t work.”
Dear Mr President. Guess what? The MAJORITY of the American people don’t want amnesty for the law breaker aliens. We are all for LEGAL immigration and welcome the law abiding imigrants with open arms. Condoning the non-law abiders citizenship is unacceptable. Get over it.
The bill’s Senate supporters fell 14 votes short of the 60 needed to limit debate and clear the way for final passage of the legislation, which critics assailed as offering amnesty to illegal immigrants. The vote was 46 to 53 in favor of limiting the debate.
Some senators in both parties said the issue is so volatile that Congress is unlikely to revisit it this fall or next year, when the presidential election will dominate politics.
The vote was a defeat for a bipartisan group of lawmakers who advocated the bill as an imperfect but necessary fix of current immigration practices in which many illegal immigrants use forged documents to live in the United States.
Not only was it “imperfect”, it was retarded and was pushed through on the hopes that the bill would pass through before anyone knew what it was all about…behind closed doors and in “secret”. That right there doomed it from the get-go. We caught it and defeated it.
It was a victory for Republican conservatives who strongly criticized pathways to lawful status for many of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants.
Voting to allow the bill to proceed by ending debate were 33 Democrats, 12 Republicans and independent Joe Lieberman (Conn.). Voting to block the bill were 37 Republicans, 15 Democrats and an independent.
All Democratic presidential candidates in the Senate, including Hillary Rodham Clinton, voted for the bill.
Imagine that. The Leftinistra leadership sided with GWB to develop a new voter base. Here’s your sign! Anything the Leftinistra want is a bad thing for America. Get over it. This won’t be the last time the Silent Majority will trounce such ignorant attempts of selling our country to the highest bidder.
