We learned yesterday that Obama is planning executive action to grand sweeping amnesty by summer's end to millions of illegal immigrants. The exact number of immigrants who would receive amnesty are unknown.

This administration is going to go to pick up an estimated six million immigrants in their own country, a small percentage are children, and bring them here by summer's end, and then grant amnesty to the millions.

Congressmen are asking all citizens to call/email their Congressmen and let them know that any border crisis bill being worked on by Congress MUST include language that stops Obama's executive action and expansion of DACA as he plans. The border crisis bill must make as a precondition to passing the bill that stops Obama's executive action and expansion of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), granting more rights and immigration. Ask them where they stand--do they support jobs, wages and good communities for their constituents or not.

Any border crisis bill being worked on now must end anticipated executive action and expansion of DACA.

You can go to OpenCongress - 113th Congress - Track bills, votes, senators, and representatives in the U.S. Congress and click on "Senators" at the top, put in your address and email to find your Congressmen. Once you pull them up, to the right is a link to their webpage that you can click on and email them and get their phone numbers. There may be an easier way, that's just what I've found.

The Illinois Congressman, Gutierrez, is on record saying quote, "Americans must be punished." That includes his own constituents that voted him in.

PS - If someone knows an easier way to get to your Congressmen's names, phone numbers and emails than opencongress.org, please post it here. Thanks.

Agreed. ILLEGAL alien Irish "need not apply". I def DON'T want their kind here in the US.

You can just go back to school and get a college degree (and go into debt to get that degree also). What the heck?!

Some people like doing manual labor OR, for myriad reasons, are not able to do skilled work or complete higher education. How arrogant and presumptuous. I think that's one of the pro-illegal arguments that is most offensive to me. No citizen or legal immigrant--not ONE--should be displaced by someone here illegally.
Agreed and HOW!

I'm gonna use one of the fav words of the pro illegal alien fans here: "hate". Why do their kind HATE us US citizens who either ain't college material like me, or other ones of us who LIKE to fix cars, do masonry and so on?

IMHO the amnesty people are the REAL "racists" and haters. Sheesh!
