You too can submit testimony to Senator Sessions’ Immigration subcommittee

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 30, 2016

Update October 1: You can fax your testimony using the address below and send it to 202-224-9102.

Update:  This post has been updated, both in the post and here. Please follow the new instructions and as I said in my update—saving America isn’t going to be easy so take the time and write a formal letter!

Tell the US Senate what you think about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program by next Wednesday, October 5th.


Senator Jeff Sessions wants to hear what you think about the plans for over 100,000 refugees proposed by Obama for resettlement in the US in 2017 (which begins tomorrow!).

I know you are very angry, however, while being forceful, be polite.  Remember you are writing to Senator Sessions who has been the shining light in the Senate for years on the issue of immigration and jobs.

If you didn’t see the hearing this past Wednesday, watch it here to get inspiration. See Leo Hohmann’s good summary of what happened here.

For those of you in overloaded and stressed towns, or in towns where secrecy has surrounded an existing or planned program, report on what is happening where you live.

If you don’t have refugees (yet), don’t hesitate to say what you think. This program requires billions of your tax dollars!

It would be a  good idea to copy your letter to Sessions to your own US Senators and to your Representative in Congress. Be sure to reference the hearing on the President’s FY2017 Refugee Admissions Program and ask them in your cover note to them where they stand on this program.

***Update***Please take the time to write letters, in a letter format, I’ve been notified by the committee staff that they can’t simply post a couple of lines of e-mails.  They have also asked that I remove the e-mail address I had originally published.  You know how important this issue is to you, so spend a little time writing a formal letter!

Address letters (testimony) to:

The Honorable Jeff Sessions

Senate Judiciary Committee

Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest

US Senate

Washington, DC 20510

You probably will have to snail-mail your testimony unless I can find a way to send it electronically (will update here if I can). Ask that your testimony/letter be included in the hearing record.

Get it there by October 5th!

P.S. Then take advantage of the fact that you testified to the US Senate and use it as a media opportunity for your local newspaper/websites/facebook etc.

      Thanks Karren, And don’t forget to copy your Member of Congress and US Senators. Tell them specifically that you sent testimony to the US Senate. If you want to take another step, tell your local newspaper you sent testimony to the Senate as well!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I’m writing to share with you how much I have hated the immigration situation in this country for years now. It isn’t possible for me to write eloquently on each issue, but I can list a few.

    Jobs Unemployment (Immigrants getting jobs over legal US citizens and veterans, Cheap Foreign Workers, Agricultural Lobby views re illegal labor supply) E-Verify (Enforcement) Welfare programs (Immigrants housing, health care, education, etc.) Border security (is there any? Open Border Libertarians) Rights for illegal immigrants (voting, driver license) Language (English as the USA official language still is not law. Why not? Legal requirements to provide every language in writing and by interpreters) Drugs (Cartels, etc.) Resurgence of health issues considered previously cured (TB, Measles, Mumps, Whooping Cough, Polio, Rubella, etc.) Mental Health issues Cultural and Crime (Domestic violence, child abuse, human trafficking, female genital mutilation, robbery, theft, rape, rape as a right, murder, and costs of capture, prosecution, incarceration, animal sacrifice) Chain Migration (End it!) Birth Right Citizenship (Abuse of this privilege) Basic Government (Creeping Sharia Law) Environmental Impact Sprawl, Congestion and Farmlands Vulnerable Americans Taxpayer Burden Wage Depreciation Reduced National Sovereignty Vetting

    Immigrants don’t have the same focus today that previous generations used to have and haven’t for sometime. Instead of taking pride in becoming Americans and wanting to assimilate into the culture, they are determined to bend the USA in ways that they want, thus eroding our original culture and laws.

    I hope that you will consider these thoughts, which are real, and continue the work you’re doing to change the immigration problem that is out of control. If there is some way to receive confirmation that you have received and read this email I would appreciate hearing from you.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  10. Thank you for helping to give us the opportunity to express our concerns regarding refugees. I think most of us agree this is NOT our grandfathers America and we have to be extra cautious about immigrants and the vetting process. I feel we have to get our country in ORDER before we allow anymore immigrants into our country. We have no idea who or how many are in here illegally. Let’s sober up and think of our Country and OUR CHILDREN first.

    FYI Ann, here’s mine: FY2017 Refugee Admissions Program -Michael Dersch     Today at 3:39 PM – To:  Message body   The Honorable Jeff SessionsSenate Judiciary CommitteeSubcommittee on Immigration and the National InterestUS SenateWashington, DC 20510 Ref: FY2017 Refugee Admissions Program Dear Senator Jeff Sessions:I hope that you are well.I find it almost impossible to express my great concern for the state of affairs regarding “resettlement” of refugees from the middle east, into the USA.We have 330 million people here already, 15(?) million illegals, daily muslim atrocities around the world, the terrible lies we’re being told by the “president”, Hillary, and their ilk, about the sufficient and stringent vetting process, NO consideration for the Christians from those regions (if they are still alive), $19 trillion in debt, open borders (which is what we effectively have when immigration laws are ignored), anchor families, and plenty of other important issues right here in the USA.I live my life as a son, brother, father, taxpayer, and citizen, in a humble manner.  I have no choice.  Taxes and expenses are so high.  I cut back where I have to, I feel it’s my responsibility to be accountable for my actions, and to square away my finances and any family issues before I can extend a helping hand to others.  WE, as a country, are NOT doing the same.  Please help stop the madness.  Please focus on Americans, their well being, and their safety first, before those from other places in the world.  Specifically, please put an immediate halt to all middle east/into the USA “resettling”, and possibly, let’s have a complete review of our immigration and visa system.  Let’s ask the American people if they would like to focus on legal, taxpaying, American citizens first.Ironic and frustrating to know that those in China and India who can, leave, their overpopulated countries.  Yet, we seem to be blind to the terrible effects of overpopulation on our environment, humans, the standard of living, safety, and stress level.  We allow 1 million LEGAL immigrants (if my research is correct) into the USA each year.  Is that not enough?  Isn’t that much more than enough?Thank you very much for being a voice of reason for American citizens.  Such a voice seems rare today.Can my email be included in the hearing record?My sincere thanks.MikeMichael S.
