The so-called Immigration reform bill swirling around Congress is a dangerous bill according to Mark Levin. It includes amnesty for everyone arriving prior to 2014. Congress wants to hood wink us once more. Precious little is being disclosed. Join the protests Friday and Saturday and let’s send Congress a message. We turned it in 2010, let’s do it again. All of the House is up for reelection this fall.
Rep. Henry Cuellar and Sen. John Cornyn have introduced legislation into the House and Senate, respectively.
The biggest issue with Rep. Cueller and Sen. Cornyn’s bill is that it includes Rep. Michael McCaul’s border security bill almost in its entirety. Rep. McCaul’s original bill, H.R.1417, would actually weaken border security, not strengthen it, in several ways. First, current law requires DHS to take all actions to achieve operational control of the entire border, but McCaul’s bill only requires DHS to submit a plan to achieve operational control of high-traffic areas and along the Southern border, ignoring much of the Northern land border and all maritime borders. Second, the bill contrasts with existing law, which already requires 100% operational control of the entire international land and maritime borders. McCaul’s bill defines “operational control” as apprehending 90% of illegal crossings as determined by DHS.
More concerning is the fact that the McCaul bill was included in the House version of the Gang of Eight’s amnesty bill, H.R.15. This means it could ultimately become a vehicle to pass the Senate-approved, Schumer-Obama amnesty bill, S.744
On Friday July 18th and Saturday the 19th, grassroots activists around the country will be protesting illegal immigration and the handling of illegal border-crossers by the Obama Administration.
H/T: goes to Numbers USA -Not in my back yard. Great site to keep up with all that is happening.
There are a handful of pro-enforcement organizations coordinating the events and more than 300 locations on the list of protests.
The list is updating daily and can also be found on one of the organizing group’s website here.
We are being invaded!
Our Border Patrol is overwhelmed by the massive flow of illegal aliens crossing our border
daily. Illegal aliens with communicable diseases and conditions such as tuberculosis,
scabies, and head lice are entering our country unabated. There is a very real security risk
to Americans from drug cartels, gang members, and terrorists – all of whom can cross our
border with no resistance. Adding insult to injury, American taxpayers are being forced to
pay for transportation, housing, schooling, legal assistance, and more for the illegals crossing
On July 18 and 19, 2014, the largest coordinated protest against all forms of amnesty,
comprehensive immigration reform, and President Obama’s complete failure to enforce
immigration laws and secure our borders will begin, all across America. The protests are
scheduled to be held at state capitols, Mexican consulates, and on streets and overpasses
coast-to-coast, including Hawaii and Alaska.
Please join us! Let’s send a message to our elected officials that they’ll never forget!
