Know the opposition!
America’s Voice is one more of those well-funded No Borders organizations that promotes “comprehensive immigration reform.”
They loved the bill the Gang of Eight (supported by Graham, McCain and Rubio) got through the Senate two years ago, a bill which would have expanded the refugee program and given more money to the nine federal contractors to do the work of getting the newly amnestied their “services” (aka welfare). Incidentally the contractors lobbied for the Gang of Eight bill and probably used your tax dollars to do it!
Here Frank Sharry’s organization blasts Trump in an e-mail to their supporters and tells them they want a “comprehensive” bill just like last time. (hat tip: Jim) By the way, they want a “comprehensive” bill so as to hide all the giveaway goodies in over a thousand pages of unreadable gobbledegook!
Have you heard about Donald Trump’s latest attack on immigrant families?
Last week, during an interview with CNN, Donald Trump stated that his plan for the 11 million undocumented immigrants would be to “find them, and get them out.” When pressed on this point, Trump just reiterated that he would get immigrants “out” of the United States.
This is just the latest attack on our communities from Donald Trump and his supporters. Meanwhile, anti-immigrant extremists in Congress are looking to capitalize on the momentum generated by Donald Trump by introducing enforcement-only legislation that scapegoats immigrant communities.
Click here (http://act.americasvoice.org/page/s/DumpTrump) and tell our allies in Congress to stand against Donald Trump and anti-immigrant extremists.
You and I are familiar with the grotesque comments that Donald Trump made about immigrants living in the United States. As we continue to approach the first Republican Presidential debate, there are no indications that Donald Trump will tone down his anti-immigrant rhetoric.
If Republicans want to get serious about reforming our broken immigration system, they need to publicly denounce Trump’s hateful comments towards immigrants, and propose solutions to achieve bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform — just like the bill passed by Senate Republicans and Democrats back in 2013.
Congress should be seeking to enact comprehensive immigration reform, not considering policies that further increase deportation.
It is time for our allies in Congress to stand against Donald Trump and his enforcement-only inspired policies. Now is not the time to give Donald Trump and his supporters in Congress a free pass to attack immigrant communities.
We need our allies in Congress to stand against anti-immigrant legislation! Click here to ask they oppose all Trump-style, enforcement-only policies.
Thank you for your support,
But what about Bernie?
Did you see what Bernie Sanders said recently about open borders—-it would make America poorer to flood the country with low-skilled/low-wage labor!
This is Byron York writing at the Washington Examiner a few days ago (if you missed it!).
As a socialist moving up in the Democratic presidential polls, Bernie Sanders raises the expectations of many on the Left. Some assume Sanders believes what they believe and are disappointed if they discover he does not. In a newly-published interview, Vox founder Ezra Klein, an advocate of an open-borders immigration policy, asked a question virtually inviting Sanders to agree with Klein about allowing any and all would-be immigrants to come to the United States. Sanders most emphatically did not go along:
Klein: You said being a democratic socialist means a more international view. I think if you take global poverty that seriously, it leads you to conclusions that in the US are considered out of political bounds. Things like sharply raising the level of immigration we permit, even up to a level of open borders. About sharply increasing …
Sanders: Open borders? No, that’s a Koch brothers proposal.
Sanders: Of course. That’s a right-wing proposal, which says essentially there is no United States …
Klein: But … it would make a lot of global poor richer, wouldn’t it?
Sanders: It would make everybody in America poorer — you’re doing away with the concept of a nation state, and I don’t think there’s any country in the world that believes in that.
What right-wing people in this country would love is an open-border policy. Bring in all kinds of people, work for $2 or $3 an hour, that would be great for them.
Right on Bernie! Cheap immigrant labor—just what we have been saying all along! And, what is so maddening to me is that the Catholics, Lutherans and Evangelicals are all-in to help bring in cheap labor to compete with low income and minority Americans!
We will be waiting to see if America’s Voice blasts Bernie (publicly).
