'Mad as Hell' Coalition Tells US, 'Do What Mexico Does'
CNSNews ^ | 04-10-2006 | Susan Jones

Posted on 04/10/2006 1:17:26 PM PDT by inpajamas

A conservative advocacy group is speaking for Americans who think illegal immigration is out of control and ought to be stopped.

The Freedom Alliance, founded by Lt.-Col. Oliver North, said it is launching a movement called the "I'm Mad as Hell and I'm Not Gonna Take it Anymore!" coalition.

The group is asking concerned Americans to call, email and fax congressional offices with objections to amnesty for people who come to this country illegally.

"Senator Reid won't take immigration seriously until illegal immigrants begin invading Capitol Hill or his cushy office," said Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon. "His wavering on the immigration bill shows why he is the minority party leader; he isn't listening to the majority of Americans."

Freedom Alliance analyst John Dougherty said it's ironic that protestors are demanding rights for illegals in the United States that illegals don't have in Mexico.

According to an official translation published by the Organization of American States, the Mexican constitution does not allow foreigners to participate in the political affairs of the country. That ban applies to participation in demonstrations.

In Mexico, even legal immigrants don't have equal employment rights; and the Mexican constitution also says that foreigners -- not just illegal immigrants -- may be expelled from the country for any reason and without due process.

While Mexico does nothing to stop the flow of its citizens to the United States, Mexican lawmakers clearly have put their own people first when it comes to immigration and foreign labor law, Dougherty said.

"For once, American lawmakers can follow the lead of their counterparts south of the border. They should adopt the same laws," he added.

The Freedom Alliance describes its mission as honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States and promoting a strong national defense.

Excellent! I hope he shows up on every news show and radio broadcast in the country. He's a great American. If anyone can rally the American voter - it's him!

I say go for it. Hurrah for Lt Col North. This ILLEGAL crap is out of hand and will lead to violence if our pols don't act soon to enforce our existing laws. Don't make new ones just use the ones we have.

but he IS the minority party leader, and thus largely irrelevant if the majority had its act together.

Kilgannon, et al, would be well advised to quit worrying about Reid and focus on the Globalists in the GOP--including the one who lives in the White House.

The dirty secret about immigration is that if illegal immigrants are sent back, government at every level loses BILLIONS of dollars, and that measn loss of power.

Don't expect anyone, Democrat or Republican, to pass serious reform.

This November, I'm voting "None of the Above"

I have lost count of the times in the past couple weeks I have "TRIED" to call the McCainiac's office here in Arizona. I think he has take the phone off the hook, always busy.

The wife and I wrote separate letters to him, all the while knowing they would be filed under "W" after consultation with "G W" of course.

Our US Rep. Shedegg and Sen. Kyl took the calls and said sentiment is running overwhelmingly against.

LtCol Oliver L. North's Freedom Alliance: "I’m Mad as Hell and I’m Not Gonna Take It Anymore"

Immigration Solution: Do as Mexico Does, Ha!

As hundreds of thousands of protestors gather on Monday to show their support for the pro-immigration movement, Freedom Alliance (www.freedomalliance.org) plans to start a movement of its own, the “I’m Mad as Hell and I’m Not Gonna Take it Anymore!” coalition.

Freedom Alliance is asking Americans to call, email and fax their congressional offices – particularly those in support of illegal immigrants, talk radio, local newspapers and whoever will listen and say “immigration is out of control, I’m Mad as Hell and I’m Not Gonna Take it Anymore!”

“Senator Reid won’t take immigration seriously until illegal immigrants begin invading Capitol Hill or his cushy office,” said Freedom Alliance President, Tom Kilgannon. “His wavering on the immigration bill shows why he is the minority party leader, he isn’t listening the majority of Americans.”

“What’s more, people are protesting for rights for illegals in America that they aren’t entitled to in Mexico,” says Freedom Alliance Immigration Policy Analyst, Jon Dougherty. “Let’s give Congress something to worry about while on recess for the next two weeks.”

According to an official translation published by the Organization of American States, the Mexican constitution includes the following restrictions:

- Pursuant to Article 33, “Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.” This ban applies, among other things, to participation in demonstrations and the expression of opinions in public about domestic politics like those much in evidence in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere in recent days. Equal Employment rights are denied to immigrants, even legal ones. Article 32: “Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners under equality of circumstances for all classes of concessions and for all employment, positions, or commissions of the Government in which the status of citizenship is not indispensable.”

- Article 11 guarantees federal protection against “undesirable aliens resident in the country.” What is more, private individuals are authorized to make citizen's arrests. Article 16 states, “In cases of flagrante delicto, any person may arrest the offender and his accomplices, turning them over without delay to the nearest authorities.” In other words, Mexico grants its citizens the right to arrest illegal aliens and hand them over to police for prosecution. Imagine the Minutemen exercising such a right!

- The Mexican constitution states that foreigners -- not just illegal immigrants -- may be expelled for any reason and without due process. According to Article 33, “the Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action.”

"Mexico has rarely been a reliable ally in terms of helping staunch the illegal flow of its citizens to the United States. In fact, Mexico usually does all it can to aid that process," Dougherty said. "But clearly, over the years, Mexican lawmakers have put their own people and their own nation first in terms of drafting immigration and foreign labor laws. For once, American lawmakers can follow the lead of their counterparts south of the border. They should adopt the same laws."

Well it seems to me that if so many illegals are together right now protesting, wouldn't that would be the perfect time to round them all up and arrest them as per the law? Or are all the protestors "legals" just looking for a cause?

A bloodless revolution is happening in the streets of our country and our President and Congress are doing NOTHING to stop it. The will of 12 million criminals is supplanting that of our citizens with the aid of our elected officials. God help us.

Anyone wanting to reach his/her congressman can go to www.house.gov; for your Senator it's www.senate.gov.

Plug in your zip code and your Congresscritter's name will come up to his/her webpage. Some will have their DC address listed on the main page, others you'd have to click "contact us" and it should give both their DC and home office(s) addresses and phone/fax numbers.

Good luck!

Thank you, I will check out Oliver North's plan.

IMO, however, if our politicians don't cave to the demands of the illegals, if they don't 'undeclare them as felons' and if they don't grant them some kind of amnesty, if instead, they arrest and return those that they can, fine employers, and cease benefits (housing, welfare, etc), IMO, all of those people we are watching on our tv sets, marching in over 60 cities in our country, are very capable of putting down those newly found American flags and starting a civil war. Even now, should something go wrong at one of these rallies, the 'local' police would be absolutely helpless to stop them.

This is one of my first post! This issue has gotten me angry! My parents came here legally and now all these people want to cut in line.

We need to put major pressure to Congress. I have written members of Congress and I wish I could go to meetings with some members and speak my mind to them. Hopefully the Congress members will get an earful from their constituents about immigration when they go home for Spring Break.

And:

4. Children born to illegal immigrants in the USA will assume the citizenship of the mother;
5. 10% tax on all money sent outside the U.S. Any funds on which tax has not been paid will be forfeit;
6. NO social service to illegals except emergency medical followed by immediate deportation.

The more pressure we keep on Mexico, immigration-wise, the more reformers
inside of Mexico can be emboldened and empowered to scale back monopolists'
abuses down there which keep our own country flooded with economic refugees.
Here's an interesting new thread on new legal reform progress that finally
emerged in Mexico I think as a result of immigration reform's failure:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1611677/posts

We can make a difference for our sake, and their's as well. Isn't it the
neighborly thing to do?

It's been 12 years since the "Republican Revolution" and where did it get us? Say what you will about Kennedy, Rangel, and Reid... at least they're honest about their socialist goals.

According to TNRIP (Tennesseans for Responsible Immigration Policies), the financial cost of this foreign invasion to U.S. taxpayers is staggering! Here is a break down of the annual costs:

Education: $22.5 billion Bi-lingual Education: $3.3 billion AFDC: $2.4 billion SSI: $2.9 billion Social Security: $24.8 billion Housing Assistance: $2.6 billion Criminal Justice: $2.6 billion Jobs Lost by Americans: $10.8 billion Other Programs: $51.4 billion Food Stamps: $7 billion Health Care: $1.4 billion."

We've already lost billions to illegal invaders!
