Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Obamination: State of the Union: Illegal Immigration?


In this installment on the STOTU we turn to Immigration issues.  [Click this link for the Prepared Remarks.]

“Now, I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration. I am prepared to work with Republicans and Democrats to protect our borders, enforce our laws and address the millions of undocumented workers who are now living in the shadows. I know that debate will be difficult and take time. But tonight, let’s agree to make that effort. And let’s stop expelling talented, responsible young people who can staff our research labs, start new businesses, and further enrich this nation.”

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:

LOUD & CLEAR.

Illegal Immigration: Deception


I sent the following email to my Congressman.

Being informed of Senator Reid's intent to ram through Amnesty and
being irritated and frustrated:

I have created a short, simple, large & bold message to Congress which
I will share with everyone I can influence through several influential
 Conservative Blogs.  LOUD & CLEAR.

Please share this message with Speaker Pelosi & Majority Leader Reid
and tell them that our votes depend upon your votes. This time we mean
it.

My Congressman responded to my email with this message:

Thank you for contacting me about immigration. I appreciated hearing your thoughts on this important issue.

It is estimated that over 12 million people are currently in the United States illegally, and many more are coming in every week. I oppose amnesty for illegal immigrants, and I believe that a fresh, new approach must be undertaken that will stop the flow of illegal immigration, secure the border, enforce the law, and require everyone to earn their citizenship.

I understand that Americans are very upset at their government for not taking enforcement action to protect our borders. In response, the new Democratic Congress has taken serious and vital steps to strengthen the security of our borders with Mexico and Canada. The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Alien Smuggling and Terrorism Prevention Act to impose new criminal penalties on alien smugglers and the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Reauthorization Act to create criminal and civil tools to make it more difficult for employers to displace American workers by bringing in guest workers.

In addition, the Fiscal Year 2008 Omnibus Appropriations Act (P.L. 110-5) includes critical funding to further secure our homeland. This legislation provides $9.4 billion for the Department of Homeland Security to place 3,000 additional Border Patrol Agents along the southern and northern border, to facilitate the construction of 370 additional miles of border fencing, and to purchase additional Border Patrol vehicles. The bill appropriates $200 million for the Department of Homeland Security to identify and remove criminal aliens. The Omnibus Appropriations bill also provides $410 million for the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program and $30 million for the Southwest Border Prosecutor Initiative to help local border communities address illegal immigration.

I have also co-sponsored the Secure America through Verification and Enforcement Act (H.R. 4088). The SAVE Act consists of a three part plan to prevent illegal immigration with a strict

emphasis on enforcement of our laws, protecting our borders, and accountability through employment verification. This legislation would address enforcement and border protection by increasing manpower and making needed technological and infrastructure improvements on America‘s northern and southern borders.

Specifically, the bill would add 8,000 new Border Patrol Agents and provide them the infrastructure they need to prevent illegal immigration while protecting our communities. As co-chair of the Northern Border Caucus, I was successful in including a provision in the bill that would strengthen security along America‘s northern border with Canada. This provision would double the number of Border Patrol Agents along the northern border in five years by requiring that 20 percent of the new agents are stationed on the northern border.

The SAVE Act would also expand the E-Verify program to ensure employers hire only individuals who are legally allowed to work in the United States. This program provides employers with an inexpensive, quick, and accurate way to verify employment eligibility.

In addition, the SAVE Act would provide the tools, resources and infrastructure necessary to enforce existing federal laws and hold offenders accountable. Specifically, H.R. 4088 would increase the investigative abilities of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), provide ICE more agents and more training, and offer assistance and aid to state and local law enforcement to protect our border.

The SAVE Act has been referred to the appropriate Committees of jurisdiction. Please be assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues to enact this common sense immigration legislation that would protect America‘s borders.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. If there is anything further my staff or I can do to assist you, please do not hesitate to call on me again.

Sincerely,

BART STUPAK
Member of Congress

While Copngressman Stupak is a sponsor of the SAVE act, he scrupulously refuses to sign the discharge petition required to get it to the floor for a vote. Thus he has it both ways: claiming to support the bill while helping keep it off the floor.
