CRITICAL ALERT

YOUR CALL MATTERS!!!!

Final Cloture Vote On Immigration Bill Set for TODAYAt 11:30am, Final Passage Vote Expected This Afternoon

1,200-page bill provides immediate amnesty without enforcement; legalization for convicted criminals; vast unchecked discretion for Secretary Napolitano; almost instant access to state and local benefit programs; less than 10 percent of future flow ‘merit-based’; CBO says increase in guest workers and low-skill immigration will reduce wages for working Americans

BACKGROUND ON AMNESTY-FIRST IMMIGRATION BILL:

·        Immediate amnesty before enforcement

·        Guts legal requirement for biometric exit-entry system

·        Millions of green cards (permanent residency) before enforcement—debunking another false claim from sponsors

·        No border surge. Agents aren’t required until 2021. It will never happen.

·        No fence requirement. DHS retains discretion in the bill that preempts the call for a fence in ten years. Litigation also provides an escape hatch to never build the fence. The fence won’t happen.

·        Legalization for gang members and convicted criminals

·        Amnesty for future visa overstays (in other words, a prospective amnesty for future illegal immigrants)

·        Guaranteed welfare access for illegal immigrants

·        Undermines interior enforcement, prompting ICE officers to warn: “There is no doubt that, if passed, public safety will be endangered and massive amounts of future illegal immigration—especially visa overstays—is ensured.”

·        Expands non-merit chain migration—less than 10 percent of future flow is merit-based

·        Doubles the number of guest workers and triples the number of immigrants granted lawful permanent residency—reducing wages for U.S. workers and driving up unemployment

I take comfort from the fact that our calls and letters kept them from the 70 votes they were so sure they would get. I'm thankful that we can pull together as individuals representing a larger cause and be part of a group like WSP.
