Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, which played a key role in defeating Comprehensive and Dream Act Amnesty legislation 2006-2010, is weighing in on today's announcement by six Senators and John Boehner that some kind of agreement has been reached in secret meetings to pass immigration reform that includes a controversial path to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants.
"These secret meetings are completely inappropriate and harmful to our system of open government," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "These lawmakers have conspired behind closed doors because they know that illegal immigration and any path to citizenship for illegal immigrants is a form of amnesty and is opposed by most Americans because it will harm American workers, students, taxpayers, and voters!"
Senator John McCain is playing a lead roll in the agreement announcement despite the fact he openly promised Arizona voters that he would no longer pursue citizenship for illegal aliens if they would reelect him against a strong primary challenge from retired Congressman JD Hayworth in 2010.
Senator Robert Menendez is playing a lead roll in pushing this legislation despite recent revelations that his campaign employed an illegal alien sex offender whom the Obama administration ordered ICE agents not to arrest until after the elections. It has also been revealed that Menendez has been investigated by the FBI for possibly hiring underage child prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.
Senator Lindsey Graham is pushing Amnesty as well despite the fact his approval ratings in his home state dove to unelectable levels after the question was raised that his hidden sexual orientation was being used to manipulate his performance as a Senator during a Tea Party rally in Greeenville, SC, on April 17, 2010. Graham fled the amnesty negotiation table with Janet Napolitano 8 days after the speech was reported in the national media.
Senator Jeff Flake is pushing this amnesty legislation after recently campaigning on the pledge that he "opposes amnesty" for illegal immigrants.
"They have assembled a real motley crew of corrupt lawmakers to push this nation destroying legislation that would radically alter the future of America's elections and borders," said William Gheen of ALIPAC. "We are going to do all in our power to stop this power grab."
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC plans to call for protests outside the home offices of each Senator and member of Congress pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens at a time of historic unemployment. These protests will take place in February.
