ACT NOW: Stop Obama Amnesty for Millions of Illegal Aliens (Call Reps and GOP Candidates)
Stand With Arizona ^ | 08-20-2011 | John Hill

Posted on 08/20/2011 6:10:05 AM PDT by montag813

More than 16,000 people have shared our post exposing Obama's amnesty-by-decree for illegal aliens and how it would apply to potentially millions of illegal aliens - preventing their deportations indefinitely. The Obama Amnesty plan - announced while Congress was out of town, and Obama was golfing with billionaires in Martha's Vineyard - is a slap in the face to all American citizens, and legal immigrants who played by the rules.

We also exposed how this new amnesty would also grant hundreds of thousands or even millions of these illegals work permits to compete with the 22 million unemployed Americans struggling to make ends meet in this brutal economy.

This usurpation of Congressional authority was enacted by fiat after two Senate defeats of the "DREAM Act", and for purely political reasons: to desperately try and shore up the Hispanic vote ahead of the 2012 election.

Needless to say amnesty pimps and La Raza racists are thrilled with this betrayal of the will of the People they had been demanding. Amnesty extremist Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said, "This is the Barack Obama I have been waiting for." This is the same Congressman who last year said: "I have ONE loyalty, and that is to the immigrant community".

We MUST not let extremists and racists like Gutierrez and La Raza prevail. This anti-Constitutional action must NOT stand.

PLEASE ACT NOW TO CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND ALL PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES.

DEMAND THEY STAND UP AGAINST THIS OUTRAGEOUS ACTION.


PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS IMMEDIATELY:
(1) Call Your Representative Now:
* Find your elected officials HERE

Congress is on August break so use the "Local" or "District" offices, and MELT THE PHONE LINES!
DEMAND
Your Reps publicly oppose the Obama amnesty plan IMMEDIATELY.
(2) Contact Reps. By E-Mail message:
* Direct contact your House Rep. HERE
DEMAND Your Reps publicly oppose the Obama amnesty plan IMMEDIATELY.
(3) By Social Media: Go to SWA's Facebook Page and Share this link to everyone you know. On Twitter, share this link and use the hashtag "#noamnesty" in your tweet.
(4) Contact Each Republican Presidential Candidate
DEMAND they denounce the Obama Amnesty and make this issue front and center to their campaign, or lose your support.
By our reckoning, NO candidate has yet made a statement on this disgraceful action, even though AZ Gov. Jan Brewer reacted within hours.
(Email links below)
Phone and Email Talking Points:
  • "I am outraged at Barack Obama's blanket amnesty plan for millions of illegal aliens."
  • "It is disgraceful for Obama to do an end-run around the duly-elected Congress which rejected the DREAM Act twice."
  • "I want to see you speaking out this weekend against the Obama Amnesty."
  • "Please defend legal immigrants and citizens by denouncing this lawless action by President Obama."
  • "Enforcement works! That is why 75% of Americans support strict penalties against employers who hire illegals. Any official who does not fight this outrage is going against the will of the American People."
  • "It is a slap in the face to the 22 million unemployed Americans to give work permits to illegal alien lawbreakers so they can take MORE jobs away and drive down wages further when families are already struggling to make ends meet."
  • "This bill is an insult both to legal immigrants who played by the rules, as well as American citizens, who would be hurt by the tidal wave of illegal workers--and their families--that would result from this bill.

Of the announced candidates, Bachmann gets the highest grade (B-) from Numbers USA for her votes in support of border control and opposition to amnesty.

Calling is a waste of time. The Reps, and GOP know all about it.
They arent going to do anything but sit on their collective arse, like they have done for the last year.

Obama is running this country and the Congress and the Supreme Court, is nothing but a waste of time and money.

Stop playing around , make the man King and be done with it.

Is this sarcasm? Maybe it is and maybe it isn’t, you decide..

Like Bill Clinton said I can Govern with the stroke of a pen.

Unless and I doubt the courts would make him enforce the laws.

However I am waiting for some lawyer to make an argument that any laws are not enforceable because of this decision.

The silence has been deafening from both the GOP leadership and the GOP candidates. Bachmann should be owning this issue, but so far I haven’t seen much comment from her camp. National Review is still silent on the issue and there’s not even a comment on American Spectator. There’s been a bit of commentary on townhall.com and Fox, but that’s about it. It’s almost as if there’s been a collective decision to avoid the immigration issue in the fight against Obama. Dumb strategy.

Here is my theory on what that is: Obama has very little to run on in 2012. A major plank that is emerging is racism. His team is going to ratchet up the racism and attempt to paint the conservatives, especially the TEA party, as racist. If someone oppposes amnesty, as codified by law or simply allowed via Great Leader's initiatives, they are racist. The nation will be reminded of its white guilt ad nauseum through all facets of popular entertainment. The Help and its silly nostalgia and the triump of the hard working 'colored women' and the Debbie Do-Gooder white woman comes to mind as one example, never mind the 'soljas' and their incessent rap that most of us never listen to. The flash mobs are part of the bait.

He has to get his base angry enough about something to get them off the couch to vote. He will use racism. It will get ugly and dangerous. Win or lose, what happens to all the anger after the election remains to be seen.

They know they will win through slow attrition on this one. Four or five years ago, this thread would have 200 angry responses within the first two hours and tons of hands raised to call, fax, FREEP and picket various legislators on the issue. I think people are just becoming fatigued over the whole issue, and unless they stand up again en masse for the umpteenth time, the illegal alien lobby is just going to prevail slowly over time and we are on the road to losing our country and sovereignty.

I think they’re more afraid of alienating the “Hispanic” vote (even though they don’t have much of it anyway) than they are of their conservative base. We need to change that.

People are too busy protecting their chosen candidates to worry about saving the nation. The lack of moral courage from the right is doing just as much damage to America as the marxists on the left.

Let me understand this: If a U.S. citizen of Hispanic descent has his house broken into, his possessions stolen, and his wife & daughter raped by an illegal Mexican does he say "that's ok, he's one of us"??!!

Don't hispanics understand that criminals are criminals and that illegals are criminals by the very act of entering the U.S. illegally? Don't they further understand that by condoning this they are ensuring that the U.S. will become just like the lawless cesspool mess that they fled from?

Exactly. Are there any Americans left in America or are there only agenda-driven, collectivist-paid-for POS politicians?

I expect it out of politicians but I expect far more out of conservative citizens who have decided to clam up because talking about immigration might hurt their chosen candidates.

All of those FReepers who have wasted no time noticing that code pink doesn’t protest Obama, well where are those FReepers now?

The president and congress do not care about the millions of Americans unemployed! They care only about their future and not the future of our country. They want millions of illegals to come here until there are no jobs left or only low paying wages! Makes you wonder when everybody is making $8 a hour who will buy homes, cars, clothes, give to charity, support social security, services, health care, insurance, schools, the list goes on and on.

I called my congressman’s office. The lady said she and the congressman agreed that Obama was acting like a dictator, etc. She also said I should call the white house. By that time it was after hours in DC. I said I would try it on Monday.

Should we add “call the white house” to the list?

Thaddeus McCotter has an "A" rating from NumberUSA.
Just because Faux News kept him out of the Ames Debate does not mean he isn't running. He just started late and doesn't have ovaries.

Obama thinks he’s setting a trap.

Gotta play this one out wisely and tie it to American unemployment.

Actually, legal Hispanics have been following this illegal situation for a couple of decades. I know because I have been a FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform) member since the late '80's. Most legal Hispanics are against illegal immigrants because they take their jobs. Still, they will vote Democrat because the libs give the legals more stuff and support the unions they are in.

I'LL SAY IT NOW AND LOUD: Hispanics, Blacks, and certain White liberals are all about race! I've been on this rock too long not to see how biased certain groups still are. Want list??? I'll provide it and all can call me racist and bigoted, but I know what my own eyes and ears tell me.

I actually called the White House today (all ready called both senators and representative. Finally got through. Told them that Obama's amnesty by fiat is despicable. On the subject of work permits for illegals, asked if Obama was aware that we have painfully high unemployment.

I think it's good that some of us call, to counter the La Raza-organized calls they will get.

This is a bigger threat than Obamacare, but no plans for a half-million peoople to protest in DC AFAIK.

'STOP OBAMA'S BACKDOOR AMNESTY'
There's only three ways to stop him:
  1. Legislation
  2. Impeachment
  3. Federal lawsuit filed by someone with *standing* and fast tracked to SCOTUS.
The odds of the last two are Slim and None, and Slim left town. And he'd just ignore Legislation if it was passed. So we better all face the facts. He won't be happy until he gets full payback from American for all the 'wrongs' done to 'his people'.

As such we also all better learn the Lyrics to Sam Cooke's, 'Chain Gang'(1) as that's where he and Holder want us all. (and please let's all sing it in key).

an aside: Dam I miss Sam Cooke, he had a golden voice.
