Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill Threat Increases

Majority Leader Reid says

"I don’t expect much of a fight at all"

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) says, "On Immigration, there's been an agreement between Obama and McCain to move forward on that… We'll do that… I don't expect much of a fight at all."

Yet, hundreds of thousands of Americans are losing jobs, huge sections of our border National Parks are closed and/or trashed due to drug and human trafficking.  "The Body Count in Ciudad Juarez (adjacent to El Paso) is 1,100 this year, with 200 murders just in August," according to a Forbes magazine report dated December 22, 2008, and that violence is increasingly spilling across our borders.  Yet some still think a "Virtual Fence" will suffice to stop the illicit trafficking and violence from spilling across our borders.

Nonetheless, Open Borders advocates are pushing "Comprehensive Immigration Reform", the codeword for an Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill, planned for passage early in 2009.  As Sen. Menendez (D-NJ) says, "If lawmakers don't consider this issue early, it could slide into midterms - and become a contentious campaign issue.  This is one of those issues that needs to be done early on."

Ominously, recent appointees to the Obama Immigration Policy Team are virtually all Open Borders supporters:

  • Homeland Security Secretary-designate Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano was no friend of Arizona's Prop. 200 and is no friend of the Immigration Reduction Cause

  • Cecilia Munoz, 18 year leader of Council of La Raza, has been appointed to Obama ’s staff as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs

  • Mass Immigration enthusiasts T. Aleinikoff and Mariano Cuellar have been appointed to Obama's "Policy Working Group"

U.S. Population ALREADY is growing by two million Legal plus two million Illegal Immigrants and their offspring every year.  The environmental degradation, job loss, wage depression, and tax and infrastructure burdens caused by this Tidal Wave are already staggering.  

So, help BALANCE now, by telling your Representative in Congress that you want:

  • No Illegal Alien Amnesties, and that you

  • DO want them to pass a zero-net-immigration MORATORIUM on legal immigration.  Pushing a Moratorium is essential to creating pressure to reduce both Legal and Illegal Immigration and to counter the Open Borders supporters’ argument that "The Solution" to Illegal Immigration is to legalize them all.

  • Make a tax-deductible donation to BALANCE to help us fight the Illegal Alien Amnesty.  Our environment, our jobs, our wages and our safety are at  stake!

             Let’s show Majority Leader Reid he in for a heck of a fight on this issue!
