Posted on 07/05/2013 7:07:40 AM PDT by onyx
The GOP House must KILL the Senates Immigration BILL, and the time for us to act is now. Today, tomorrow, this coming week!
Like Rush said on Wednesday, Free Republic was the Tea Party before there was a Tea Party.
The House is the last stop between Amnesty and saving our Republic.
We have been told that the House Leadership will meet on or about July 10, 2013 to decide on how theyre going to deal with the Senates Immigration Reform Bill.
They are caught between big money interests and the will of the people, meaning us, those they represent.
We know the House must be our firewall to prevent this odious bill from going to reconciliation.
There are two ways it can be passed. First they can bring up and debate the Senate bill, then vote on it. Thats the least likely way it will happen, they wont dare do this.
The other way it can happen is to fashion a bill that sounds goods, paying homage to even stricter border security, or some such bilge that will never be enacted.
If they do that, or anything at all with the illegal immigration issue this term, it will go to conference and be reconciled with the Senate bill.
Some of you have already had some luck with your representatives who are sympathetic to our conservative cause. A lot of people are calling and writing, asking their congressman to tell the House leadership to just say no to any debate and to any bill in any form.
There are strong signs the calls are beginning to have a positive effect. Its vitally important now, for all of us to burn up the phone lines, burn up the fax lines, and e-mail our representatives and the House leadership to KILL the Senates BILL.
All of us must do our part and also ask our families and friends to the very same, even if our US Representatives are not on our side and likewise regarding the US Reps of our families and friends.
Calls and e-mails count!
A couple of points you might want to get across:
1. Remind them of how the Senate and the House were lost to democrat leadership after the last attempted betrayal on illegal immigration.
2. Remind them (nicely and passionately) that we are perfectly capable of replacing them once again should they repeat their mistake.
3. Remind them that this bill is bad for America, bad for the economy, and bad for the workers of this country.
4. Remind them we are a party of ideas, not pandering. The idea that we will be liked more for passing the Senate bill or any kind of amnesty bill is untrue; actually its media and democrat driven.
5. Ask them not to bring up the matter for debate, not to bring ANY bill that could go to conference with the Senate. No bill, no conference, just say no! This is not something the American people want.
Speaker Boehner is playing games with his link. Try as I have, I can't live link his e-mail form like I did last week. Here it is for you all to cut and paste into your browsers:
Office of the Speaker H-232 The Capitol Washington, DC 20515
Thanks so much, everyone!
God bless and keep you all.
Lets get this done right away!
Please get on this right away everyone.
We have our Republic to save.
Thanks so very much, skeeter!
Even if your congresscritter's office is closed for the long weekend, voice mail, email, and fax never take the long weekend off.
Our tolerance for debt-based welfare to immigrants is equal to our tolerance for the debt that we are willing to pass onto our children and grandchildren.
Reduce our tolerance for debt-based Federal Programs, and our tolerance for immigration will also be reduced.
Our Southern Border is under the control of Mexican Drug Gangs. An illegal attempt by AG Holder to challenge their grip failed with Fast and Furious.
Obama has allowed INS officials to increase the number of got-aways and to decrease the number of illegal alien invaders actually caught.
Gullible News outlets, such as The Wall Street Journal routinely run articles quoting Obamanation statistics that numbers of captured illegal alien invaders are down, and thus there is no such thing as the surge of illegal alien invaders from Mexico and other Southern Hemisphere Socialist Countries.
Most News outlets refuse to come to our Southern Border to document their obviously false assertions.
Most State Politicians cower when our sorry NINE SUPREMES dictate that the State has no authority to protect itself from illegal alien invaders.
As long as THE NINE SUPREMES have 4 Socialist Judges, there will always be a high risk that some gullible Judge from the Majority will cross over to the dark side and continue the destruction of our US Constitution as the signature accomplishment of the US Welfare State. Traitor John Roberts support of Obamacare is the most horrific example.
Thus, it is incumbent upon those of us who still value the US Constitution to oppose the dark side, what we now call Obamanation.
The purpose of passing a Federal reform immigration bill this year is to allow illegal alien invaders from Mexico, and other Central and South American Socialist Countries, to vote for Socialist-Democrats and appeasing RINOs in the 2014 and 2016 USA National Elections for more debt-generating welfare to future illegal alien invaders to become future Socialist-Democrat voters.
These future Socialist-Democrat voters should be called McCain-Rubio Democrats, as no other Senators have done more to encourage gullible RINOs to appease and otherwise cave-in to debt-dependent Democrats than these two sorry RINO Senators.
Stand your ground, FReepers! Raise the Gadsden Battle Flag!
It is us against the gullible supporters of Obamanation!
While Rubio and his Eight Senate Gangsters put out political smoke and mirrors to get a bill passed this year, nothing they have said will change the basic problem of aliens illegally invading the USA.
The Basic Problem: Illegal aliens invade the USA for Welfare and Wages.
Solutions that address the Basic Problem:
1.) End the Anchor Baby Law.
2.) End the Hospital Emergency Room No Payment Law (EMTALA).
3.) End ANY other Welfare to Aliens.
4.) Fine US employers $1,000 per day per employee who is an alien.
5.) Spend NO money on securing the border. It is a bottomless money pit.
6.) Spend money on Chainlink/ Concertina wire desert prisons for the EXISTING Federal Law for a mandatory 6 month imprisonment for repeat offenders who have invaded our Country more than once.
7.) Transfer Border Invasion Enforcement to the US National Guard in each State, and thus under the control of the Governor of each State. The less Federal involvement, the better.
8.) Repeal all State and Federal Laws that prohibit voter officials and Police from requesting proof of US Citizenship for any reason what so ever.
9.) Be as hostile to all illegal alien invaders as we should be to all Federal politicians and Federal Judges who vote for or support another Ted Kennedy-style amnesty bill with no significant Federal enforcement.
Contact your local TEA Party, and plan to kick the sorry RINOs and even sorrier Democrats out of Congress in 2014!
It is all about the money FReepers, YOUR tax money.
The critters likely have a long 4th of July weekend, but leave a message today, if possible, and for sure send Boehner and your critter an e-mail.
Thank you so much, Graewoulf!!!
Already did it.
Here’s his response:
123 Gaffer Road South
Dear Mr. Gaffer:
Thank you for contacting me in opposition to the Senate immigration bill. I appreciate your input, and welcome the opportunity to respond.
To begin, you can count on my opposition to the Senate immigration bill. I do not support any legislative body passing an almost 900 page bill that has not been read, evaluated, examined, or reviewed for all possible consequences of implementation. Georgians are already feeling the devastating consequences of this approach through the passage and implementation of Obamacare. I am appalled that Senate Democrats, and even Republicans, would put American taxpayers at risk yet again. You may be interested to learn that the House Judiciary Committee, which has jurisdiction over immigration policy and of which I am a member, has chosen to approach immigration reform by reviewing every aspect in fine detail.
As an original co-sponsor of the SAFE Act, I believe Congress first priority in immigration reform should be securing our borders in the interest of national security. I will only support legislation that significantly enhances our border security and enforcement mechanisms and the SAFE Act does just that. By granting states and localities the authority to enforce federal immigration laws, those who pose a national security risk will have greater difficulty entering and remaining in the U.S. The SAFE Act also improves visa security, protects American communities from dangerous criminals, and equips our immigration enforcement officers with the resources needed to better do their jobs.
I will not support any legislation that grants mass amnesty for illegal immigrants. Rewarding those who have broken our nations laws is just another example of where the Senate immigration bill fails. As one of the most generous legal immigration systems in the world, the United States admits more than one million legal immigrants each year. Those who desire to make the U.S. their home must comply with our laws, starting with entering our nation through legal channels. Unlike my Senate counterparts, I will continue fighting against mass amnesty and ensure that taxpayer-funded programs only go to those for whom they were designed.
Immigration reform is a vast matter of vital importance to Americas families, communities, and businesses, so Congress needs to take the time to get it right. I will keep your thoughts in mind as I continue working with my colleagues to promote legislation that secures our borders, deters illegal immigration, and removes criminal illegal immigrants from our communities.
Again, thank you for contacting me. Please continue keeping me informed of the issues that matter to you.
Member of Congress
KILL THE BILL!
And it's not about compromise. EVERYONE in the US illegally should leave....no legalization of any kind. Employers and other enablers of them should get fines and jail time. EVerify should be the law of the land. After six months or so, there should be a reward to US citizens for turning those in the US illegally in alive and healthy.
Anything less is the pro-invasion elements assuming they've won important points against what needs to happen to save the US.
I have already called my Congress and Senators. Just made the call to the Speaker’s office. Quite frankly, I am sorry that I was able to get through on the first call. I pray his phone rings off the hook today.
I actually think the House is headed towards the right decision on this one! (miracles never cease?)
I've spoken several times to those who have answered the phone for our congressman and they have been very supportive. The guy I spoke with said his boss (the congressman) was definitely against the Senate bill. I reminded him we didn't want ANY BILL that had a chance of being reconciled with the Senate Bill in conference, and he understood.
KILL THE BILL! I was encouraged, and hope to send my letter to Boehner's office and leave him a message as well.
At this point I think you are right, but the other side is lobbying aggressively, with lots of tempting $$$ to offer.
Contacting your congresscritter every day you can through the end of next week is truly important.
Tokyo Rove is spreading his nonsense in the ranks, we need to overwhelm them so they won't listen to him.
I actually think the House is headed towards the right decision on this one! (miracles never cease?)
oh I agree with that...contacting House members over turned that awful Farm Bill, and it’s also been why the House is on the verge of the right thing here....
We so pray!
With enough heat, calls, e-mails, faxes etc., the House will get our message.
They’re our last stand and they know it.
God bless you and God bless US Rep. Doug Collins, from the GREAT STATE of Georgia!
I heard Ted Cruz talking aobut how the calls, letters, etc. really do work, it's what killed the farm bill and the gun bill. Tokyo Rove has a lot of influence, brings a lot of donations to the table, we can't hang back while he gets his nose under the tent (or other nefarious places).....
You’re precisely right!
Thank you so much!
God bless and keep you.
...yep, and I was shocked we over turned that awful Farm Bill.....very encouraged also. This stuff does work! (not always, but then again, 100% is a rare situation in life).
They’re hiding the cost of the immigration bill: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3039401/posts
¿Quiere ponerse en contacto con miembros del Congreso en Español?
John Wayne would be mad as hell, and I know I am!
Both my RINO POS Senators responded to my e-mails about amnesty with their typical Washington doublespeak, and voted in lock step with the Dims. Will be contacting my Congressman today, from whom I expect an actual willingness to stand up for the people who elected him.
We need to absolutely overwhelm House members with our insistence on a resounding NO to giving a free pass to all the prospective unregistered Democrat voters.
If he is supportive, remind him: No bill, nothing that could ever go to Conference with the Senate Bill. Best to not even bring it up for debate, just let it die.
While you’re talking to them, tell them the “enforcement” provisions are a joke. If Obama can unilaterally waive the employer mandate provisions of ObamaCare he can do the same with Rubio’s vaunted “enforcement”.
I know. I saw that right away.
You're precisely right and thanks very much for adding that to this thread!
Nice idea, but when you have a RAT for a congressman (Yarmuth) there isn’t much you can do. When I called my congressman to tell him not to support the immigration monstrosity, they hung up on me. All the congressional and senate e-mails are set up so you can’t contact someone unless you live in their district.
Dear Congressman Duncan,
Unlike our two Tennessee Senators, who all to often seem in lockstep with the Obama administration, you have always impressed me as a man willing to stand firmly for the conservative principles that are the bedrock of America's greatness.
The will of the people across America, and here in Tennessee, should not be ignored just to pander to a vocal minority. Let's face it, what the Senate has proposed is nothing but a free pass for millions of lawbreakers, while giving lip service to tightened border security and other eye candy that they think will fool the people. We are NOT amused!
I urge you in the strongest possible terms not to even consider the Senate travesty. Too often we have seen supposed good legislation enacted, and then watched as the executive branch totally ignores and circumvents anything in the law that they don't like. DON'T give them the chance!
Stop this insanity in its tracks. Secure our borders. Tell immigrants there has been a legal pathway into our country for years, and it doesn't involve sneaking across the border at 2 AM in the back of a U-Haul truck.
I am watching this issue closely, and look forward to your leadership in preventing this travesty.
Do not know who in his office will read it, but I assure you they will not mistake my meaning.
This is the most critical issue of the Twenty-First Century for America. Its importance cannot be overstated. Fundamentally, what is at stake is whether the Constitutional Republic is there for the rooted citizenry & their posterity (progeny) or for the world at large. It is obviously insane, if the primary interest is the citizenry, to be importing millions who do not even share our or a similar culture, at a time when many millions of rooted citizens have dropped out of the labor force because of various phenomena that are certainly not being addressed by the Schumer/McCain/Graham betrayal.
KILL THE BILL
BTTT! Thank You onyx & Lakeshark!
Pinging the Thomas Sowell and Ollie North lists to this important thread.
Thank you jazusamo, every thing helps.
I saw a blog that asked the following question:
If Obama can violate Obamacare law to delay enforcement in healthcare, whats to stop him from delaying implementation of (conservative) portions of the upcoming amnesty bill?
Right, except the Speaker and Eric Cantor.
Thank you so much, darling deo!

My 2 cents from 2010: Amnesty: The Line in the Sand.
From Washington's speech at the battle of Long Island:
"The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army Our cruel and unrelenting Enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die: Our own Countrys Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world."
If a sham amnesty bill passes, we have no choice - We the People have to water the tree of liberty. . It will be our last chance.
The left always threatens riots if this or that racial issue doesn't go their way. Well, if amnesty passes, they will discover our resolve.
