|Tell Florida Sens. Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio:
No Amnesty for Illegal Aliens!
President Obama no longer has to worry about re-election. Now, he says he’s free to pursue “comprehensive immigration reform.” But what he means is an amnesty that would flood the nation with millions of new job-seekers. Stop this illegal-alien amnesty.
The talking heads in Washington are trying to sell the American people a falsehood. They say Obama’s win proves that Congress simply must cave in and pass an amnesty. Don’t believe it:
The toughest proponents of enforcing and improving immigration laws were nearly all re-elected. In fact, the House and Senate both have more tough enforcers now than before the election. And President Obama got nine million fewer votes in 2012 than he did in 2008.
The danger, though, is that many panicky lawmakers may be stampeded into going along with an amnesty. They’ll ignore the fact that there are still eight million fewer full-time jobs than there were four years ago. And they’ll ignore the weak economic growth will barely make a dent in the unemployment rate in the coming years.
They may even try to do it during the lame-duck session of Congress. Already, Republican Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor are signaling that they are willing to work on a deal. You need to tell them, “No illegal-alien amnesty!”
Don’t let Congress ignore the plight of the American worker. We can win this battle. We beat back the big illegal-alien amnesty in 2007, when no one believed we could. And so many of the senators who pushed for amnesty are gone. But we have to stop the stampede.
Send Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio this urgent fax, letting them know that you won’t believe any lame excuses for rewarding illegal aliens with American jobs.
