They are traitors because they believe in a different solution than you do?

As an American, the American people come before any other nations citizens.
Traitors are un-American, so it can be said and argued that those pro-amnesty losers are very un-American, thus traitors to the American citizens.

That is not a solution, as documented after the 1986 blunder. Look where that got the American people.

Salvation Army is one of the largest denominations in the National Association of Evangelicals. A spokesman told NumbersUSA today that the Salvation Army is neutral on immigration policy and neither supports nor opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Quote:
Major Hood noted to NumbersUSA that the Salvation Army would never deny its charity to somebody because of legal status and would not inquire about it, quoting the denomination's official mission "of preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and to serve suffering humanity in His name, without discrimination."

Not exactly a position you guys would endorse either.

Put the traitor card away because it is getting played out.

They ARE a charitable organization. As such, they wouldn’t be expected to require ID or proof of citizenship. However, there is a HUGE difference between being charitable and endorsing amnesty. That is where they draw the line. If they were pro-illegal they would endorse this – which they clearly don’t.

I am a staunch anti-illegal, but I wouldn’t deny ANY human being water if they were dying from thirst, or a morsel of food if they were starving.

They are not pro or anti- illegal either, they don't support or oppose "amnesty".
