5-Year Renewable Visa Planned for Illegals!

And a Superb “Physical Fence By Date Certain” Bill To Support!

Open Border Lobbyists, including leading House Democrats and Hispanic Caucus members have been working for several weeks on an Illegal Alien Amnesty bill which would allow all 25 million plus Illegal Aliens to obtain an infinitely renewable Visa, upon payment of a small fine and completion of a background check.

This is yet another Illegal Alien AMNESTY, obviously.

One version of the bill would apparently allow Employers, who have broken the law by secretly hiring Illegal Aliens, to be given a clean slate and be absolved from prosecution under the Employer Sanctions laws.

Unfortunately, this Bill has an enhanced chance of passing because it does not contain an automatic path to citizenship (to which some Members objected last year), and would relieve employers of liability for prosecution.

Worst yet, DHS Secretary Chertoff’s February 22nd, announcement that he had approved a 28 mile section of Virtual Fence for the Southern Border, plus the increasing support of the flawed SAVE Act with its focus on a “Virtual (rather than a physical) Fence”, would allow proponents of the Illegal Alien Amnesty to argue: ‘See we are securing our Border, now let’s pass an Amnesty’. 

Fortunately, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) and over 40 Co-sponsors are pushing a Bill  which would require the building of a double-layer Physical Fence. H. R. 4987, “The Fence By Date Certain Act”, requires construction of a double–layered fence along 700 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border by June 30, 2009.  This Bill has been referred to the Subcommittee on Border, Maritime and Global Counter Terrorism.

We need your support for this Bill today—We need more than the 40 co-sponsors to make sure this Bill will “move” out of the Subcommittee and through the House. Let your Representative know TODAY that you are in favor of H.R. 4987! And that you want them to co-sponsor it.

This Bill would make a Giant Step toward solving the problem of Illegal Immigration by putting our border security first. This Bill also would largely reinstate language that was included in the Secure Fence Act, which became law in October 2006. However an Amendment sponsored by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) inserted into the 2008 Omnibus Appropriations Bill, gutted the Secure Fence Act by stripping the requirement of a double-layered physical fence.  

WE MUST ACT NOW:     Contact Your Senator or Representative!!     

---Tell them you do not want an Illegal Alien Amnesty in any form,whether via a renewable Visa or Otherwise!!!

---Also tell them that you DO want a Zero-Net-Immigration Moratorium so the Open Border Lobbyists can not argue that “The Solution to the Illegal Alien Problem is to Legalize them all”

---Tell them to Co-sponsor the “Fence by Date Certain Act” (H.R. 4987) a genuine physical fence.

---Tell them you do NOT favor dissolving the United States into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada, and you DO want them to support H.Res. 40 (Goode, R-VA) opposing this North American Union Scheme.
