Conservative Uprising Over Immigration

Conservative Republican Howard Kaloogian is leading an opposition effort against amnesty and drivers licenses for illegal aliens.

(SAN DIEGO) -- Howard Kaloogian [website:] isn’t just a candidate for U.S. Senate against the extremist liberal, Barbara Boxer. Kaloogian is leading an effort to stop Republicans from ‘selling out’ on the issue of illegal immigration.

Conservatives have become increasingly dismayed to see Republican political leaders, including President Bush and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, beating the drumbeat to reward illegal immigrants with an array of benefits and rights including amnesty and drivers licenses.

Bush made international headlines by proposing an 'amnesty on the installment plan' that would not only allow illegal immigrants already in the U.S. to stay for an indefinite amount of time, but would invite non-citizens to enter this country with a free pass. If this happens, hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs would be taken by non-citizens from throughout the world.

And in California, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he is near a deal with Democrats in the state legislature to reintroduce a bill that would allow illegal immigrants to receive a drivers license. What's worse is that California's Motor Voter law allows individuals to register to vote when they obtain their drivers license. Thus, millions of non-citizens could become registered to vote and impact national policy.


While Kaloogian is a strong supporter of the President’s tax cuts, war on terrorism and national defense policies, he is strongly opposed to the immigration plan.

But Kaloogian believes, “if my campaign for U.S. Senate is victorious then I will have sent a powerful message to both Schwarzenegger and Bush that they need to rethink their plans because the voters are not with them on this issue.”

And Howard Kaloogian has a record of shaking up the establishment.

Kaloogian was the founder and Chairman of the Recall Gray Davis Committee [website:] which shocked the world by successfully recalling the first statewide official in California history.

Kaloogian had to overcome resistance by Republican leaders who opposed the recall effort in the early days including former Secretary of State Bill Jones who is Kaloogian’s chief rival in the Senate race.

Jones has disappointed Republicans in the Golden State by not opposing either the President’s amnesty plan or Schwarzenegger’s “drivers license for illegal aliens” proposal.

And the woman that Howard Kaloogian hopes to unseat as U.S. Senator is even worse on the immigration issue.

Barbara Boxer has introduced her own blanket amnesty for illegal aliens and she also has fought to grant free tuition for children of illegal immigrants in California's state funded universities.


Immigration reform advocates including Ron Prince, who authored California’s Proposition 187, which would deny taxpayer-funded benefits for illegal immigrants, have endorsed Kaloogian.

Kaloogian has also been endorsed by Bruce Herschensohn, State Senator and Recall Gubernatorial candidate Tom McClintock, Dr. James Dobson, Star Parker and Phyllis Schlafly. Leading conservative organizations including Eagle Forum, Concerned Women for America, Republican Liberty Caucus, National Tax Limitation Committee, Gann Taxpayer Organization and Gun Owners of America have also endorsed Kaloogian.

Polls show Kaloogian surging but his largest obstacle is funding. Kaloogian has raised approximately $200,000 but will need at least $1,000,000 to fund a statewide television ad campaign to position himself to win the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate.

Kaloogian has appealed to conservatives throughout the nation to step forward to support his efforts so he can be a national voice in Congress to advocate for a secured border and block efforts to grant amnesty or drivers licenses to non-citizens.

He is in search of 8,000 individuals from throughout the nation to contribute $100 so he can raise the necessary $1,000,000 in the next 3 weeks.

You can help Howard Kaloogian reach his fundraising goals by making a contribution online right now by CLICKING HERE.

Campaign finance law allows individuals to contribute as much as $2,000 and Kaloogian is hoping to raise a bulk of his funds from donors who will make such a contribution.

If he is successful, Kaloogian believes this will send a strong and clear message to Republican leaders: “Our leadership is going down the wrong path. You are abandoning your base and a majority of voters overall and failing to uphold your constitutional duties to protect our borders and national sovereignty."

As many Conservatives are on this forum. Unfortunately, we are deemed persona non Grata by our fellow Freepers.

You're right.
We'll be much better off keeping Barbara Boxer.
What was I thinking!

Why are you so thick headed?

It's your boy or no boy at all?

You really think Bill Jones can stand up to Barbara Boxer?

He can't on his record, he can't on his personality and he can't ride Arnies coattails all the way to D.C..

Maybe you and FairOpinion can be passionate as it relates to Jones, but good luck motivating the rest of California. However, when I see Bruce or Ed, I will tell them that their staff is doing a terrific job policing the web.

ONe step at a time, every one needs to donate. I will get a check in the mail on Monday.
If every one that has taken a stand on illegal immigration would donate we could put him over the top.
