Carrying Capacity Network Action Alert
But CCN is not fooled. This new "get tough" attitude
is simply a gimmicky ploy to distract U.S. citizens from the real
focus of the Administration's plan -- the legalization of up to
20 million illegal aliens already living in the U.S. (who
could then bring their families, resulting in perhaps as many
as one hundred million additional people in the USA in a few short
years!). The tool is a "guest worker" program that will
let the illegal aliens who are already here stay, with the prospect
of then importing millions of additional foreign workers.
Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) is circulating a bill which would
do just that. Temporarily defeated in late December, Senator Specter
has now renewed efforts to force supporters of tough immigration
enforcement to include "guest worker" (i.e., amnesty)
provisions. Bills like Specter's can be revived, even after they
are temporarily defeated. Indeed, the 1990 bill increasing legal
immigration by 40% was defeated on the last day of that Congressional
session, only to be revived and passed later that same day!
We must generate counter pressure on their push to double legal immigration by PUSHING FOR A MORATORIUM. Only pushing for a moratorium calls the whole enterprise of mass immigration into question, and thus trumps the "rationale" for legalizing the illegals as an ostensible "solution"!
The Open Borders lobby's strategy is to have the Senate pass a bill enacting a "guest worker" (amnesty) program. They would then meld that Senate bill with the enforcement and border security bill (recently passed by the House) in conference committee early this year. This forces the House to vote up or down on the new bill -- without the possibility of amendments and would allow the open borders advocates to avoid a nasty floor fight in the House.
By linking an amnesty/"guest worker" program to
the House enforcement and border security bill, the Administration
seeks to mislead Americans into supporting a massive amnesty of
Certain Republicans and Democrats (the "guest worker"
aka amnesty bills
We can stop it, but time is very short. Fortunately, we have a plan.

2) WE VERY MUCH NEED YOUR HELP. The Bush Administration is soliciting millions of dollars, planting news stories, and trying to ram the Amnesty through Congress and pass a bill doubling immigration, just as they did CAFTA! But resistance to this scam is building and together we can stop it.
Thanks to the generosity of members and supporters like you,
CCN and its ASAP Coalition allies have been able to stop previous
amnesty attempts. BUT NOW MORE THAN EVER OUR RESOURCES ARE STRETCHED
TO THE LIMIT. WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR DONATIONS TO FIGHT BACK!
Come to Washington D.C.!
Note: CCN is anti-mass immigration but NOT anti-immigrant.
