This is the beginning of Blogs I intend on Immigration.
This is based on an early NumbersUSA posting.
I originally sent it to each one of The Gang of 8.
Since then I have come up with other Summaries as well as the actual Text of their proposed Bill.
- Little or no accountability...kicks the can down the road... till it is too late
- Rewards illegal activity
- Sticks taxpayers with a BIG Bill... as in $$$$$
For now, read on
Recently I faxed this “immigration” note to each of “The Gang of 8”.
Today I find that Sen. DeMint largely agrees with the points I made.
Sen DeMint Comments
PLEASE read this and vote FOR ME, FOR America, to kill this flawed bill!
I am FOR Immigration Reform… but, let’s get it right.
Will YOU be the one to call out Janet Napolitano on her misleading border protection propaganda?
Will YOU tell her that … better than ever, but Inadequate is …..Inadequate?
Immigration is a hot topic.
The Gang of 8 has a mixed bag of Communications.
This is based on my understanding of their position.
IF I am wrong, PLEASE correct me!
This is from a Politicians reply to a constituent
= = = = = = =
Comprehensive immigration reform should provide a path to citizenship, secure our borders, restore due process to our immigration enforcement policies, preserve family unity as a cornerstone of our immigration system, and reduce the long backlog for immigrants who earned degrees in our universities to receive green cards.
= = = = = = = =
My evaluation was ………….. bi-furcated ….. speaks with forked tongue…. Mostly ambiguities.
Here are my thoughts …. These are MUST…. NECESSARY Conditions, but addresses his 2-speak.
- 1st …..The Gang of 8 ….. Traitors of 8… named below…. Are proposing
- Amnesty 1st…. BorderProtection Later
- America Last…NO Protection ACTION… only a plan
- How SAD for America…that we have Traitors in High Position
- IF I am wrong, please drive it home……..provide details!
- 1st and foremost …. NO prize/benefit/reward for breaking into America
- IF you got here ILLEGALLY, DO NOT expect a free pass.
- We will NOT accept 1500 pages of instant reward for illegals!
- No more Anchor Babies… No Anchor Baby Hotels
- Our Borders MUST be ADEQUATELY Protected
- Hogwash like( Napolitano)Better than ever before. from Napolitano no longer gets a pass
- Inadequate is… improving….trying (IF you can even believe that) is … INADEQUATE
- Need help?.... ADEQUATE, at minimum, is when the number of illegals LEAVING exceeds those entering!
- NO Traitors of 8…. NO Amnesty after only a PLAN for Border Protection… NO!
- E-Verify…. For everybody
- Fail e-verify and you are on the next bus to Mexico
- Employers caught with illegals on payroll are fined $10,000 per day per employee
- Max of 1 year to comply
- NOT the 5 years being proposed by Gang of 8
- Originally introduced in 1986 …should be enough time to comply…BUT who will enforce?
- Random, on site, Drug Tests…….fail and you are …..outta here!
- Government Benefits are for CITIZENS……NOT Illegals………
- NO/NADA/ZIP/ZILCH Government Benefits unless you are a Citizen
- You may come here LEGALLY to work but if you want Citizen Benefits, become a Citizen…. Until then you are here to work.
- IF you get here LEGALLY, pass e-Verify you can bring your immediate family, but without benefits untiil you each/all are Citizens.
- Retaining Talent… reducing the backlog for College Graduates.
- 1st we must make America attractive so they WANT to Stay
- Until then, a Presidential Executive Order can grant a Green Card to
- ALL who are already in line…. If they agree to stay for 10 years
- ALL new Graduates… Their Diploma IS their Green Card … same conditions… 10 years
Now, some facts…then comments from others.
Fwd: interesting facts
- The new immigration law being considered adds 1 to 4 Trillion dollars to the debt
- Those allowed to become legal can Petition Relatives to Join them
- Right to Work States have 7% on Welfare and Non-Right to Work States have 18% on Welfare.
- It appears Unions support/create more Welfare
- Communist want people on Welfare, they then can keep them on Welfare and keep their Vote!
Here are comments ( modified) from a Citizen Patriot Friend… about the proposed Amnesty bill
Subj: Amnesty Bill Near Completion
Forward this to all of your Citizen Friends!
It appears we have Senators and Representatives that do not want their source of Drugs interrupted and are safe guarding the known Drug Smuggling paths that are used daily.
They want to leave those areas open to protect their campaign donations and some of their California Constituents life lines to their supplies.
What is wrong with these idiots?
It was published today the cost of this plan will be over a Trillion dollars and could be several trillion dollars.
It will add 20 Million more to the Welfare roles because they can also petition to bring in their relatives.
We must circulate this to all the News Papers and Social Media sites.
The Gang of Eight must be well known as the “Illegal Gang of 8 Drug Smugglers” …. Or “The Traitors 8” and those that value the illegal acts but do not fight for jobs for their Citizens that do not have a job!!!!!
They need to be identified
- Michael Bennet (D-CO)
- Chuck Schumer (D- NY)
- Dick Durbin ( D – IL)
- Bob Menendez ( D – NJ
- John McCain ( R- AZ)
- Jeff Flake ( R- AZ)
- Marco Rubio ( R- FL)
- Lindsay Graham ( R- SC)
The Elite Ruling Socialist Class strikes again!
They will own your health care, your schools, your colleges, your food stamps, and the list goes on as your tax dollars will feed, educate, house, Illegals….. They will be rewarded for breaking into America. Obama will be giving them free phones for their votes, and on and on...... they don't care about you... you are just expected to pay for it!!!!

Amnesty Bill Likely Next Week -- Here's the Outline
This Issue: Amnesty Bill Likely Next Week -- Here's the Outline
There can always be more delays, but unless there are, it's becoming more apparent that the Senate Gang of Eight will introduce its massive, 1,500-page "comprehensive immigration reform" bill next week. The bill will grant instant legalization and the right to work to most of the 11-18 million illegal aliens.
The Gang has been working for months in secrecy and behind closed doors, only allowing a few pro-amnesty groups into the discussions. Despite promises to brief their own party caucuses, they've even failed to loop them into the process. It's likely that's not their only promise that will be broken should the plan become law.
Through leaks to the press, we've learned a some of the details.
First, as Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has said, the legalization will come before the enforcement. Millions of illegal aliens will receive amnesty once DHS submits a plan to Congress detailing how they'll secure the border. Just to clarify, they only have to show a plan; they don't have to actually do it. Just like the border promises of 1986, these promises will likely be long forgotten after the amnesty is granted.
Second, even though the Gang's plan calls for increased border security, it only calls for increases in areas where there are high numbers of illegal border crossings. I'm sure it won't be too difficult for the sophisticated smugglers that have been evading detection for years to relocate their operations to another spot along the 3,000-mile border.
Third, the plan calls for a 5-year implementation of E-Verify. We're happy to see E-Verify included in the plan, but Rep. Lamar Smith's bill in the last Congress rolled out the program in three years with most employers required to use it in the first 6 months. This slow of a phase-in will give ample time for more illega l workers to flood across the borders and secure jobs that could otherwise go to unemployed Americans.
Fourth, the plan calls for completion of the entry/exit system (again, a positive step), however, it only covers completion at sea and air ports. Each day, thousands of foreign visitors enter the country using land ports at places like El Paso, Texas, San Diego, Calif., Buffalo, N.Y., and Detroit, Mich. None of these ports will be required to install the entry/exit system.
Fifth, the plan's guest-worker program, which will eventually provide up to an additional 200,000 "temporary" work permits a year, isn't so temporary. The plan hammered out by the AFL-CIO and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will permit workers to change jobs and eventually allow them to apply for a green card.
Just think of what we'll learn when the bill is actually introduced!
ICE Agents testify in Texas
On Monday, several Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, including ICE Union President Chris Crane, testified in a Dallas federal courtroom in their lawsuit against the Department of Homel and Security. You may recall, the agents filed a lawsuit against DHS Sec. Janet Napolitano and ICE Director John Morton, charging that DHS officials had overstepped the authority granted to them by Congress. The agents claim they were ordered to release illegal aliens that met requirements of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and other DHS directives.
Monday's hearing was a preliminary injunction hearing, and the judge will soon decide whether or not these prosecutorial discretion directives should be suspended in light of the agents' complaint. A ruling is expected in the next several weeks.
NumbersUSA's members are paying all the costs of the lawsuit.
Illegal Aliens rally at the Capitol
On Wednesday, thousands of illegal aliens were bused in by the various unions and religious groups that are urging Congress to pass an amnesty bill. The rally was mostly uneventful and gained little coverage in the news since Congress was focused on other issues.
We had several film crews out talking to the attendees, and we've posted all the videos to our YouTube page. We've just added some highlights from the rally with some very revealing interviews.
VIDEO: Pro-Amnesty March
We'll continue to add more videos as we complete them.

NEW ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSERS ASK FOR AMNESTY
San Antonio's WOAI radio is reporting a surge in illegal border crossings along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, and Border Patrol agents say the detained border crossers are asking for amnesty. Border Patrol agents say the number of illegal border corssers being found dead in the Texas brush country is also up and on path to beat last year's record mark.
REPS. KING, BARLETTA, AND GOHMERT VOICE OPPOSITION TO AMNESTY
On the floor of the House of Representatives Wednesday night, Reps. Steve King (R-Iowa), Lou Barletta (R-Pa.), and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) voiced their opposition to the amnesty bills being drafted in both the House and the Senate. The three have been mostly silent, but decided it was time to speak out with news that legislation is likely to be introduced next week.
CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION MEMBERS URGE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS TO OPPOSE AMNESTY
Three members of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights have sent a letter to the Congressional Black Caucus urging them to oppose amnesty. In their letter, the Commissioners ask if there are currently enough jobs in the country for minorities and they say no.
56% OF SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS SUPPORT MANDATING E-VERIFY
A survey of small businesses conducted by National Small Business Association found that 56% of small business owners would support a mandatory E-Verify requirement. Only 24% opposed such a mandate. The survey also found that only 5% of small business owners have applied for either the H-1B visa for high-skilled, temporary foreign workers or the H-2B visa for low-skilled, non-agriculture temporary visas.
WORKER PROTECTIONS SOUGHT AMID EFFORTS TO INCREASE HIGH-TECH VISAS
Work on the so-called comprehensive immigration reform bill has been delayed while Senators argue over the inclusion of worker protections in the high-tech industry. Some are pushing for higher wages for those entering under H-1B visas, and penalties for high-end H-1B users, so that such workers do not displace citizens and legal residents.
