Tea Parties Against Amnesty

2 November 2009 15 Comments

A preemptive strike to stop amnesty from becoming law is in the works.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is calling on the immigration enforcement movement to team up with the Taxpayer Tea Party and 9/12 movements to hold “Tea Parties Against Amnesty” rallies across America on November 14.

“We know that the honest polling data shows over three to one opposition to the Gutierrez Obama Comprehensive Amnesty path to citizenship legislation,” William Gheen of ALIPAC said in a press release referring to Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez proposed immigration reform legislation. “ALIPAC stands ready to organize and channel the backlash wave of anger that is coming into peaceful civic action designed to remove many lawmakers who do not serve the wishes or interests of their constituents in 2010!”

Luis V. Gutierrez, D-Ill. is the chairman of the Democratic Caucus Task Force on Immigration. He also introduced the Citizenship Promotion Act with then Senator Obama in 2007. It is a bill which, in part, would give $80 million to community organizers to “organize” the immigrant community to become U.S. citizens with the right to vote.

The “Gutierrez Obama Comprehensive Amnesty” plan, as ALIPAC calls it, made news in October when Gutierrez spoke at an event organized by Reform Immigration FOR America. According to their website, “The Campaign to Reform Immigration for America is, in part, a project of the Tides Advocacy Fund.” The Tides Advocacy Fund “is founded on principles of social justice, broadly shared economic opportunity, a robust democratic process and a sustainable environment.”

The key criteria outlined in Gutierrez’s proposed legislation includes:

  • A path to legalization for illegal immigrants who pay taxes, learn English, pass background checks.
  • A commission to decide appropriate levels of future workers wanting to come to the U.S. This would be instead of a new temporary worker program.
  • A “21st century enforcement strategies” at the border, that presumably doesn’t include the border fence that Republicans have insisted upon.
  • Interior enforcement that doesn’t include workplace raids.
  • A worker verification system with error proof database.
  • A system based on family reunification
  • Ag Jobs, giving agricultural workers a path to legalization.
  • The DREAM Act, which would allow young people who crew up in the U.S. to be able to work and go to college legally.
  • In an email exchange Gheen said that the November 14 rallies were put together rapidly to catch any backlash that would come from Gutierrez if he files his proposed legislation. Gheen made it clear that these upcoming rallies are a precursor, “We plan larger scale operations in the Spring,” he wrote back.

    The last time comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens was put forward was in June 2007 under former President George W. Bush. The bill was defeated when the Senate vote fell 14 votes short of the 60 required to move it forward.

    While it is no secret that America’s immigration system is broken, and this longstanding system breakdown adversely affects America’s national security and economy, the latest Rasmussen Report shows, “By a 70% to 22% margin, voters say that gaining control of the borders is more important than legalizing the status of undocumented workers already in the country.”

    However, despite the wishes of voters, legalizing illegal aliens inevitably seems to become the dominate topic in the immigration debate. It also appears in impending legislation aside from Gutierrez’s proposals. Before President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration, for instance, in January 2009, Vermont’s Senator Patrick Leahy introduced the tough-titled “Stronger Economy, Stronger Borders Act of 2009,” S. 9. However, in Sen. Leahy’s introduction it is revealed that a wall with Mexico should be “reconsidered” because it is a “symbol of fear and intolerance,” and “harsh penalties and more enforcement” are not a realistic solution to address illegal aliens.

    Then there is Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer, a co-sponsor of S. 9, who also serves as the Chairman of the powerful Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees and Border Security. His voting record, documented by Ontheissues.org, suggests he is a staunch illegal aliens advocate.

    Sen. Schumer:

  • Voted YES on continuing federal funds for declared “sanctuary cities”. (Mar 2008)
  • Voted YES on comprehensive immigration reform. (Jun 2007)
  • Voted NO on declaring English as the official language of the US government. (Jun 2007)
  • Voted YES on building a fence along the Mexican border. (Sep 2006)
  • Voted YES on establishing a Guest Worker program. (May 2006)
  • Voted YES on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security. (May 2006)
  • Voted YES on giving Guest Workers a path to citizenship. (May 2006)
  • Voted NO on limiting immigrant benefits & controlling borders more tightly. (Sep 1996)
  • Voted NO on prohibiting illegal immigrants from receiving FEMA benefits. (Jul 1994)
  • Co-sponsored providing funding for social services for noncitizens. (May 2006)
  • Rated 8% by USBC, indicating an open-border stance. (Dec 2006)
  • More evidence that legalizing illegal aliens is on the horizon appears in an October 1 interview in the New York Times with the new director of the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), Alejandro Mayorkas. Mayorkas said that the agency “is already planning ahead for the possibility of giving legal status to millions of illegal immigrants.”

    This all might be good news for amnesty advocates but here is the bad news — which should concern both points of view on this issue. The notion that the USCIS, tasked in part to keep America safe by keeping unscrupulous people out, is a competent agency and therefore will be equipped to process millions of illegal aliens should amnesty become law is fiction and entirely absurd when one examines the USCIS’ record. For starters, America’s $2.6 billion a-year immigration agency amassed a twenty-year backlog of applications under both Democratic and Repubican administrations. It loses files. Even worse, it is riddled with crime and corruption where bribery, be it for money, gifts or sex is part of their record of achievement that has put America’s national security in jeopardy and arguably contributed to the illegal alien problem in the first place. To expect competency from this troubled bureaucracy could prove to be an exercise in self-defeat.

    ALIPAC’s mission is to conduct rallies and protests across America. “We hope that these events combined with our lobbying efforts and support for campaigns will stop these attempts to destroy America through mass illegal immigration and amnesty.”

      Hi,
      I have established an educational video playlist. It’s aimed at convincing the general public we do indeed have a problem which is debtrimental to our society. These videos clearly show why the illegal immigration crisis creates a unsustainable path for our socity & country.

      See http://www.illegalimmigrationcrisis.com

      Additionally I’ve seen over 20,134 videos @YouTube as of 10-30-09.
      Most are repetitive or junk. But at least 5% have extremely powerful educational information. And, if Americans knew this information there would be a landslide of efforts to educate ourselves, record turnouts for voting & letter writing to our government demanding they start representing “We The People” instead of their own special interests.

      I observe that most Americans don’t know about this information because of :
      1) Time constraints.
      2) Limited access to computers and interent.
      3) Traditional news sources don’t cover this information to any full extent.
      4) “DEFLECTION” as exampled in this video Titled “Awareness Test”:
      See “The Awareness Test”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCv52aetAtQ

      So I’ve taken the responsiblilty to get this information to people with Limited access & Time. Tons of information has been condensed & catagorized so others can learn 50x fast than I did. We can be equally yoked on specific facts which are crippling our country.

      NOTE:
      I’m ready to host “Educational Tea Parties” 3-5 days every week in the SF Bay Area. All of the technology is available right now. I own:
      - Sound systems for groups from 30 – 3,000 people.
      - Generators.
      - Lighting.
      - Computers.
      - Video Screen & Video Projector
      It’s all ready to go in a 1-Ton Diesel Van. I could be ready to tour in 1-2 weeks.

      However I don’t have any one to attract audiences or do promo like the Tea Party Express does.

      If I could get some help and some financial backing I could create “Educational Tea Parties” 3-5 days per week here in the SF Bay Area.

      “Educational Tea Parties” accomplish the following 9 goals:

      A) Hand out flyers showing specific issues on why we need to tell big government to rethink their actions.

      B) Show the videos from page #1 from my Blog.

      C) Hand out DVD’s so people can take them home and show others.

      D) Ask people to submit the DVD’s to Public Access TV stations.

      E) Ask people to show the DVD’s to friends and civic groups. (Hold their own “Educational Tea Parties”)

      Bottomline — “Educational Tea Parties” would end with a call to action.
      Build a stronger than ever UNITED EFFORT by :
      1) Writing or contacting Senators & Representatives.
      2) Seek more education.
      3) Support & Attend Tea Party Events.
      4) Vote out all whom don’t serve “We The People” & follow the laws in our Constitution.

      Reply if you want to help me create “Educational Tea Parties” 3-5 days per week here in the SF Bay Area.

      I’m ready to rock. Sure would be good to talk to you about my project.

      It’s time to “Take America Back”.
      Hear the Song!!!!

      P.S. Specific areas I need help with:
      A) Advertising & Printing.
      B) Permits to have events & event locations.
      C) Funding or Fund Raising.

      Any congressman that supports, enables, funds, or facilitates illegal immigration in any way, has failed his oath to the Constitution. He has also broken US laws.
      So why are these people still free and not in jail ?

      As an aside, the Congressional Black Caucus is pissed off because only congressional blacks are being investigated for illegal activity. Its truly amazing at how stupid these people are—just look at published crime statistics, and you will see that blacks commit more crimes than the rest of the population. And they think a black in congress is any different ?
      That supports another finding by William Schockly many years ago….look it up!

      Thank you for this information. This country has 4th generation farmers in California starving because Madame Speaker Pelosi and her liberal friends want to protect a 2″ fish! These are the same morons that want to grant citizenship to illegal aliens. We have Americans that are starving yet Pelosi and her buddies want to feed and clothe people that have no right to be in this country.

      Americans need to wake up! Speak up on november 14th!

    5. AllAcrossAmerica says:

      I have no problem with immigrants, or hard working folks. What I do have a problem with is coming to this great country of ours illegally, not paying taxes on wages earned here, stealing money from hard working Americans through having their health care and other benefits provided bt our tax dollars.

      The gangbangers and drug dealers are true scum and should be deported back to the slime hole they climbed out of to begin with.

      Corrupt politicians (gee, why does pelosi comes to mind) praising the illegals only seeing them as votes – is really a form of slavery.

      Again, I believe this country is great because it’s been the melting pot of the world, sending those brave freedom hungry from all four corners of the world.

      However, we can not become a welfare state for losers from all the third world nations.

      Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

    9. Lamar Slaney says:

      I saw on the news there is debate over whether you should refer to this new year as twenty-ten or two thousand ten. Which one do you think sounds more appropriate?

    10. Wm Grebner says:

      You made some good points there. I did a search on the topic and found most people will agree with your blog.

    11. In Marxist theory, it is the go-between state between Capitalism and Communism. I have alot of family in Europe living under Socialist governments at present and some of whom were under Communism previously. I work for a European company and work with people daily who have lasted under said organizations for their whole lives. I know darn well what it is, and I have no desire to live under that form of regime. I would rather battle you in the streets then to exist as they do.

      Enjoyed the posts..

    13. The problem with this country is BOTH the Democrats and Republicans. Anyone who seriously thinks that one side isn’t corrupt or slaves to Corporate America hasn’t done an adequate job of paying attention. To the Republicans: The GW administration will go down in History as one of the worst administrations. They eroded your constitutional rights, expanded the power of the wealthy elite, invaded countries under false pretenses, destroyed diplomatic relations with the rest of the world, and spent money like it was going out of style. To the Democrats: Obama is a dud. He promised much and has turned out to be another corporate lackey. He made deals with big pharma to ensure you could not get your medication cheaper elsewhere, he flip flopped on military tribunals, he refuses to fix health care properly through nationalization or single payer, he populates his inner circle with more Wall Street insiders, he spends money on bailouts and useless stimulus packages.

    14. Hi – It’s great to find such interesting writing on the Internet as I have been able to fiind here. I agree with much of what is written here and I’ll be coming back to this website again. Thanks again for publishing such great reading material!!

    15. This is awesome. I am gonna put this in my bookmarks before I misplace the url, I don’t believe I’ll ever make it back again otherwise :)
