Call to stop DACA amnesty push

Alert date: 
January 6, 2018
Alert body: 

Political pressure to give an amnesty to DACA illegal aliens is building. Yet there is absolutely no reason to grant an amnesty, to grant it right now, or to tie it in to national sovereignty - that is, funding for a secure border fence.

Keep in mind that if an amnesty is agreed to in exchange for funding for the first year of border fence construction, Congress will drop funding for subsequent years. That's what they did in 2006: Congress authorized the fence, but never authorized the funding to complete it.

Here are three articles on the border fence / wall:

The true cost of amnesty is always paid for by American taxpayers. Corporate interests benefit immensely from the cheap labor who ultimately vote for the public benefits offered by the Democrat party. 

Here are a few pertinent articles on the consequences of a DACA amnesty for 35 year old "children".

It is time to take action. A push for a DACA amnesty in Congress may happen very quickly. Here is an alert from FAIR - please take the action recommended in the alert:

Call your three Members of Congress and tell them that a DACA amnesty in exchange for token and ineffective immigration enforcement provisions is unacceptable. 

Tell them to only support reforms that secure the border, increase interior enforcement, and address our highly dysfunctional legal immigration system by ending chain migration and the visa lottery. Failure to do so? It will come at a high political cost - tell them that! 

Background:

Some in Congress say their top priority for January is DACA amnesty. Really? Was that what President Trump promised? 

Democrats are again threatening a government shutdown while insisting on attaching an unconditional DREAM Act amnesty to the spending bill that must be passed by Jan. 19. At the same time, key Republicans are letting us down by pushing for a standalone package that pairs a DACA amnesty with meaningless enforcement provisions. 

We need to put their heads on straight. What about securing our borders, protecting American jobs, ending chain migration, and stopping dangerous sanctuary cities? These are the priorities of the American people, not amnesty. 

The stakes couldn't be any higher. Unless YOU speak up, the same thing could happen that has happened before: illegal aliens get amnesty, while we get empty promises of weak enforcement. 

Don't let this happen! Here's the contact information:

Contact your Representative: 202-883-4964

Contact your two Senators: 202-873-9877

Also call House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and urge them not to bring ANY immigration bill to the floor that doesn't secure the border, increase interior enforcement, and address our highly dysfunctional legal immigration system by ending chain migration and the visa lottery. Remind them that a DACA amnesty for illegal aliens delivers nothing of significance to the people who voted for change in 2016. 

Contact Speaker Ryan: 202-858-3626

Contact Majority Leader McConnell: 202-759-7684
