THE CRISIS INTENSIFIES:
TIME TO PUSH HARDER FOR IMMIGRATION REDUCTION
Even though Federal Judge Hanen courageously issued an Injunction staying President Obama's Unconstitutional Executive Order Amnestying Millions of Illegals, it is nonetheless an Opportune time to intensify our Efforts to Reduce Illegal and Legal Immigration. And we must intensify our efforts because The Mass Immigration Crisis Intensifies. Consider:
Legal Immigration alone is after all running at 100,000 per MONTH!!
Two excellent Opportunities to get Reductions in Legal Immigration are outlined below.
It is more Important Now than ever to STOP Mass Legal and Illegal Immigration because:
— The Obama Administration-controlled Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency released over 66,000 convicted Criminal Aliens back into American communities in 2013 and 2014!! And Deportations of all Illegal Aliens are down nearly 50% since 2012, according to recently released ICE Data.
— IF Obama's Executive Amnesty is implemented at some point (and who knows what this Supreme Court will do), American Taxpayers and honest beneficiaries will be out of pocket $1.3 Trillion dollars for Social Security and Medicare Benefits alone!! (Rector -- Heritage Fdn)
— The Vice President of the Union of Border Control Officers testified recently that he and his fellow agents "face retribution" for even reporting Illegal Alien Groups larger than 20 crossing the border! Illegal Aliens continue to stream across the border without pause!
— The USCIS reported that 7.4 Million Work Permits were Issued to Illegal and Legal Aliens from 2009 to 2014! We reiterate that the Obama Adm. has solicited Bids for printing over 30 Million Legal Residence authorizations (Green cards) and Work Permits!!
At the same time, American Workers wages have declined since 2008 and Millions are still Unemployed or Underemployed! Official “new jobs” figures hide the scandalous replacement of good-paying jobs with lower-paid jobs that often are filled by legal or illegal aliens.
And worse, President Obama has proposed changes in the L-1B visa program which would bring in hundreds of thousands (unlimited) of foreign tech workers to compete with/displace Americans. The L-1B Visa program allows a foreign company with offices in the United States to move foreign workers into the U.S. and pay them much less than American workers and, does not require any protection for American workers.
And while the Great Drought in the Southwest threatens Food Supplies, Hundreds of Thousands of New Residents place ever-increasing demands on our limited water supplies, while at the same time increasing our welfare rolls
— And consider yet another Burden imposed upon American Hospitals, Schools, Taxpayers, and on our Working Poor and Homeless and Unemployed and Underemployed:
"To facilitate the often treacherous process of entering the United States illegally through the southern border, the Obama administration is offering free transportation from three Central American countries and a special refugee/parole program with “resettlement assistance” and permanent residency.
"Under the new initiative the administration has rebranded the official name it originally assigned to the droves of illegal immigrant minors who continue sneaking into the U.S. They’re no longer known as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), a term that evidently was offensive and not politically correct enough for the powerful open borders movement. The new arrivals will be officially known as Central American Minors (CAM) and they will be eligible for a special refugee/parole that offers a free one-way flight to the U.S. from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The project is a joint venture between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the State Department....”
Judicial Watch, April 2, 2015
according to a DHS memo obtained by Judicial Watch this week. The document goes on to say that the CAM program has started accepting applications from “qualifying parents” to bring their offspring under the age of 21 from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The candidates will then be granted a special refugee parole, which includes many taxpayer-funded perks and benefits. Among them is “a free education, food stamps, medical care and living expenses.”
While the Threat of Drug Cartel members, Gang Members, Terrorists, and other violent types entering our country as a result of Obama’s Nullification of Border Enforcement is very Real, those are not the only Increasing Threats to our National AND PERSONAL Security.
We reiterate where Dr. Ben Carson M.D put his finger on other risks: “...sustained measles transmission has not occurred in the USA since the 1990s…(but)…we now have people coming into the country, sometimes undocumented people, who perhaps have diseases that we had under control.”
Dr. Michael Savage (PhD Epidemiology) was even more explicit: “Measles, the killer flu strain, the resurgence of TB have all followed Obama’s reckless policy of bringing in unscreened, unvaccinated masses from south of the border.” WND 2/4/2015
These warnings amplify the late Dr. Madeleine Cosman’s reports of new diseases entering the country in the persons and luggage of legal or illegal aliens. As long as local and State health departments had money to pay, and more costs could be shifted to the insured population, immigrants will continue to flood into the USA.
But there is hope for Progress in getting Real Reductions because Grassroots Americans are becoming increasingly outraged about Mass Immigration.
Here's What to do:
Ask your Senators and Representatives to
1) Push for Passage of the State and Local Law Enforcement Act (H.R. 1148 Gowdy R-S.C.), which would
— authorize State and Local Law Enforcement (some 200,000 Strong) to enforce Immigration Laws as long as consistent with Federal Law and,
— withhold Grants from Sanctuary Cities which defy Law Enforcement, and
— expedite the Removal of Criminal Aliens, and
— Defund Obama's Executive Amnesty
The Counterarguments to pushing this Bill — that it might not pass the Senate, that it will get vetoed, that the Supreme Court will eventually act on Executive Amnesty are NOT Valid. Members of the Courts are after all influenced by Public Opinion, so it is very important to ensure they know what Public Opinion on this issue is.
Various crisis scenarios are possible, and more or less probable, which demonstrate that it will be critical to eventually pass H.R. 1148 even over a Presidential Veto.
2) Push for a Zero-Net Moratorium as a First Priority, even if we do not get one any time soon.
That is because Pushing for a Zero-Net Moratorium on legal immigration maximizes Political Pressure to get some Reductions at least and maximizes pressure to get Good Bills of all types. And a zero-net Moratorium would still allow appx. 150,000 Immigrants per year (e.g. spouses and minor children of U.S. Citizens) to be admitted.
Indeed, simultaneously pushing a Moratorium could provide just enough Political Pressure to get our border protected and Legal Immigration reduced!
And it would maximally benefit American Workers and our country as leaders of over 45 Activist Organizations agreed at the founding Conference of the ASAP! Coalition which CCN co-Sponsored nearly two Decades ago.
Advocating a Moratorium is Essential for delegitimizing the whole justification for Mass Immigration.
Indeed, merely pushing for “Immigration Reform” or, Worse, pushing for "Controlled Immigration for the National Interest" are both Counterproductive because they send the message that Mass Immigration is OK if we just reduce it a little bit.
And pushing for "Controlled Immigration for the National Interest" is even WORSE because it also sends the Message that Mass Immigration IS in the National Interest!
The aforementioned problems will all worsen unless we push for, and eventually stop, Mass Immigration! Is it not, therefore, True that any Organization which refuses to Push a Moratorium as a First Priority, is NOT really Serious about stopping the Mass Immigration Tsunami?!!
—In sum, pushing a Moratorium maximizes our clout to actually get the illegal alien amnesty defunded, get our border protected, and get some reductions in legal immigration
—And the other thing we need to maximize our clout is to Donate to CCN now so we can intensify our initiatives by mobilizing thousands of our activists to push good bills and a moratorium as the best way to maximize our clout to get the illegal alien amnesty defunded our borders protected, and legal immigration reduced!
—Donations are tax-deductible!
In sum, CCN’s Strategy is The One which Maximizes our ‘Clout for the Buck’
Please Act NOW. Americans Jobs, Wages, Budgets, Health and our PERSONAL and National Security are increasingly Threatened!

Note 1: “The key: write in precise language that is designed to use the bureaucracy against itself and make implementing the Obamnesty impossible. The restrictive language needs to be both specific, to cover the precise legal rationales that the Obama Administration is using to defend Amnesty, and broad enough to cover any new strategy the Administration might come up with to enable its plans.
“One of the most important pillars of the Obama Regime’s Administrative Amnesty: is the claim … that illegals can not only stay in the country but can also gain rights and privileges including the always-coveted employment authorization.
“Therefore, any specific legislation needs to target “prosecutorial discretion” and also outline penalties for “non-feasance,” or the refusal of a federal employee to perform a lawful duty.
“Any DHS funding legislation must also prohibit specific practices that the current bureaucracy exploits. These include the following: Deferred Action, Extended Voluntary Departure, Deferred Enforced Departure, Public Interest Parole, and Parole in Place. These immigration-specific phrases were the basis of Amnesties in the past and ... They should be specifically prohibited.
“Even more importantly, language should also be included prohibiting any other action that would relieve any illegal alien—of any disability under immigration law. This would also mean a prohibition on any alien who is unlawfully present being able to “adjust status” or make any applications for any benefits, parole into the United States, or inspection and/admission to the United States.
“What would be the Obama Regime’s reaction to these bureaucratic restrictions? Quite possibly, it would simply ignore the law. However, the Republicans can include language that would enable judicial review.
“The drawback: the wheels of justice turn slowly. The Obama Regime could use the courts to play this out for the two years remaining in this term. Any legislation should include a clause that would provide legal standing to Americans and enable judicial review of immigration law, and it should be supplemented by language both prohibiting DHS employees from implementing illegal actions and, also, protecting those employees who refuse to enforce the Obama Amnesty from disciplinary action.
“The goal is to protect those government employees who want to do their job and enforce immigration law, and to penalize those employees who try to impose President Obama’s Administration Amnesty.
“The result: rank-and-file federal employees would be free to enforce immigration law by refusing to unlawfully issue any benefit to illegals, make arrests of illegals, and deport illegal aliens regardless of illegal orders from the White House. These employees would also have a cause of action in court to file for redress and obtain an injunction against illegal orders, with any supervisor, manager, executive, or constitutional officer personally liable for any violation.
“Such language would undermine the Regime’s authority over the bureaucracy, but in a manner that supports the rule of law. And it would be a de facto death sentence for the Administrative Amnesty.
“Employees would also be authorized to seek an injunction against illegal orders that would be binding nationwide. All it would take is one employee and one sympathetic Federal District Court judge to end the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty
“Protections for loyal Border Patrol Agents, Sheriffs and Police who work in law enforcements are essential. Already, Sheriffs Police assert that they have been threatened with punitive budget cuts if they fail to lobby for Obama’s Homeland Security budget in its entirety.’’
“Focus on the budget does not mean that we should back away from pushing for specific reforms, such as requiring E-Verify or building a border fence. (Or closing the Anchor Baby loophole). Remembering that the Obama administration’s Administrative Amnesty is not legislation, but a bureaucratic decree, it can be overcome by detailed legislation designed to counteract it bureaucratically where it is weakest—on legal grounds.
“It’s one of the easiest things the new GOP Congress can do. And by fighting on the seemingly unimportant details of bureaucratic policy, the GOP can enable a larger victory on the entire immigration issue.”
