Wow! 400 pro immigrant groups in 30 cities, in just this past week alone!

"NEW YORK -- An estimated 400 immigrant rights groups in more than 30 cities are launching a national campaign for immigration reform this week, reports Univision. The campaign, "Reform Immigration FOR America," is directing supporters to ask their senators and representatives in Congress to approve immigration reform that includes an emphasis on national security, workers' rights and a path to legal permanent residence for undocumented immigrants."

What they should do is fight illegal immigration, the bringing in of illegals by dishonest lawbreaking employers which would increase the need for legal immigrants.

Many of the employers won't go through the cost of sponsoring a legal immigrant, taking financial responsibility for them and paying legal wages and benefits because they can get by with breaking the laws.

Legal immigrants are given health care insurance, overtime pay and so on.

While I agree illegal aliens were all over this country marching in the past two days, these are NOT pro "immigrant" marches. These are pro illegal alien/amnesty marches. Therein lies the problem and the difference.

Clearly, your title is deceptive. It is this kind of dishonesty that further dilutes your cause.

Perhaps you should rename this thread.

Capitol offices were filled with pro-amnesty supporters today -- your voice needed Friday

Send new faxes and pick up your talking points for phone calls on your Action Buffet corkboard

DEAR FRIENDS,

First, thanks to all of you who responded to my Alert of early Wednesday to fax and phone to counteract the giant open-borders gathering that began that day.

Since yesterday morning, you have sent 99,207 faxes to Congress through NumbersUSA with a clear message:


No amnesty for illegal aliens

Less immigration overall

Special thanks to those of you who picked up the phone and delivered that short message.

HALLS OF CONGRESS FILLED WITH YOUNG ADVOCATES FOR AMNESTY TODAY

Our lobbyists reported that everywhere they went on the Hill today they had to work their way through college-age advocates for the DREAM Act amnesty for most illegal aliens under the age of 35.

I have no doubt that your faxes and phone calls far outnumbered the faxes and phone calls from the national open-borders mobilization this week. But so many students actually in the congressional offices creates a strong impression.

Expect a lot more of this Friday.

That is noting to be proud of.

What ICE needs to do is starting (politely) 'profiling' those marchers, etc.

I love how "Immigrant" is used as a blanket term to describe Illegal Aliens and Legal Immigrants..

The marches pictured appear to be in favor of the Pro-Illegal Alien dubbed "Comprehensive Immigration Reform = AMNESTY"
