Carrying Capacity Network Action Alert

  January 16, 2007

Recently, legislation [H.R. 884] that could legalize some 1.5 million illegal aliens working in agriculture was introduced by Reps. Chris Cannon (R-UT) and Howard Berman (D-CA). The so-called "Guestworker bill" (in fact, an Alien Amnesty) also has strong support in the Senate, where its version [S. 359] is being touted by John McCain (R-Az) Larry Craig (R-ID), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Ted Kennedy (D-MA), and Mel Martinez (R-FL).

The AgJobs bill would allow illegal immigrants who have worked in agriculture to apply for "blue cards" that grant them "temporary" legal status and put them on the road to permanent legal residence, according to the Associated Press. Since their spouses and children are eligible for the cards as well, the bill could eventually lead to an amnesty for millions more.

Indeed, the bill is likely morph into another version of last year's McCain-Kennedy amnesty, which would have pardoned the vast majority of the 25 to 30 million illegal aliens living in our country and brought in 100 million legal immigrants over the next 20 years. After all, last year's version of the AgJobs bill was included in the McCain-Kennedy Super Amnesty and Senator Kennedy has said that is "our plan" for this new Congressional Session

The bill also "streamlines an existing foreign guestworker program" according to a January 10, 2007 McClatchy Newspapers report. Of course, CCN Supporters all know what that likely means! It likely means that the Open Borders crowd will try to push this AgJobs Bill under the radar so to speak, and then, at the last minute in conference committees add on the disatrous provisions of last Session's McCain-Kennedy-Specter-Martinez et. al. Bill which would force one hundred million or more new legal immigrants down the throats of the American people. Senator Kennedy says his goal is to have a bill passed and signed by this coming June!

Let's act now to nip another major amnesty in the bud!

Write, fax, or call your Members of Congress and let them know that you opposed the AgJobs amnesty and any other form of amnesty for illegal aliens. [Note: Your faxes need to come from your home or office fax machines. Apparently more and more Congressional offices are using blocking software to block faxes from one or associated fax numbers!]

Also insist that they support a zero-net-immigration MORATORIUM. Only PUSHING a MORATORIUM calls the whole enterprise of mass immigration into question, defeats the Open Borders crowd's argument that"...we can 'solve' the illegal immigration problem by legalizing them all…" and thus puts maximum downward pressure on immigration numbers.
