Our NumbersUSA Capitol Hill Team got several confirmations through both Democratic and Republican sources that Sen. Feinstein (D-Calif.) was preparing to add an [agricultural] amnesty to the Iraq bill Thursday afternoon in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
We don’t know the details of the amnesty. There is some chance she may try to slip it through by not including permanent legalization but just giving one or two million illegal ag workers a 5-year amnesty that allows them to work and live here while further sinking roots. The open-borders champions hope that the longer illegal aliens stay the more difficult it will ever be to deny them U.S. citizenship.
We need phone calls into the offices of members of the Senate Appropriations Committee — massively and immediately!
If you live in the state of one of these Senators, please make a phone call immediately.
If you don’t have a Senator on the Committee, you may want to call a Senator in another state with which you have some attachment. We particularly need extra phone calls to Senators from small-population states.
Here are the Appropriations Senators who need your call:
Byrd (D-West Va.)
…North Carolina growers, for example, have set up a North Carolina Growers Association that meets all of the ag labor needs through local workers and through legal foreign workers brought through the H-2A visa which ensures that the guest workers go home. Why shouldn’t California growers play by the same rules as law-abiding farmers in other states?
Based on past experience, there is a good chance that Feinstein will decide not to introduce her amnesty Thursday afternoon if she feels there is a major move against it. That’s what we want. Please let every member of the committee know just how worked up citizens get as soon as they hear of a possibility of an amnesty.
Amnesty for Illegal Aliens has no place in a war funding bill and we have been down this "give amnesty" road before and WE, the people, rose up and defeated it soundly. Americans overwhelmingly responded by jamming Congressional phones, emails and making our voices heard very very loudly.
Looks like people are going to continue to try to sneak amnesty for illegal aliens into bill after bill and we must respond unflinchingly each and every time.
