We must hold each Member of Congress fully accountable for all immigration actions ... Help us do it


Wouldn't it be wonderful if millions of Americans would see this banner, click on it and see which candidates running for Congress and Governor are truly committed to enforcing immigration laws and reducing overall immigration?

I am asking all of you to make that happen.

The banner-links, codes and instructions for using them can be found at:

If you have a website, then put the banner-link on it immediately.

If you don't have a website, start emailing the above link to websites that you use and respect. Ask them to display the link prominently to make sure that their website users are aware that there is a place where they can go to know the true immigration-reform candidates this year.

Copy these colorful banner-links at the bottom of your emails so that more people can be aware of them.


The craziness in Congress recently should convince you that we need some new Members of Congress -- and we need enough current Members to think defeat a possibility that they will sign up to do the right thing on immigration as protection.

Every American who wants to put some sensibility back into immigration policy needs to know that this special website exists that certifies which candidates are committed to that sensibility.

These links take a person to the nation's central nerve center for Immigration Reform Candidates for Congress and Governor. Web Editor Mike Betsch updates these pages every day -- and will continue to do so until the elections are over.

Josh Turcotte has designed the candidate links in two color schemes and three sizes. Here are samples:

in this email:
1. Why we need millions of Americans to see these links, click on them and see the candidates who have pledged to clean up the immigration mess

2. Also, use Banner-Links for Immigration Grade Cards to make sure all Americans know who is responsible for this immigration mess

Most Members of Congress right now are hoping that by the time you vote, you won't remember what they did on immigration.

We must not allow that to happen.

This banner-link campaign is essential to make sure that no Member of Congress can hide votes for amnesties for illegal aliens ... votes for drastic increases in foreign workers ... votes against enforcement ... votes for forcing another 100 million people into our U.S. communities over the next few decades.

We already see signs of some of the worst Senators and Representatives claiming that they are for tough enforcement of immigration laws. We cannot allow their bold lying to prevail.

These banner-links -- if placed on hundreds of websites -- will ensure that most Americans who plan to vote based on the immigration issue will know the TRUTH about each candidate.

As many of you have discovered in visiting congressional offices in your home areas in recent weeks, the Immigration Grade Cards make congressional staffers extremely nervous.

The more nervous Members of Congress become, the less likely they are to vote for amnesties and giant immigration increases.

Don't you think that every website in America that claims any interest at all in sensible immigration policies ought to have a visible link taking people to a website where they can review a Senator's or Representative's entire immigration record?

You can find the Grade Card banner-links, codes and instructions for using them at the same web page:

If we are going to ever win this battle for reduced immigration, we have to make sure that millions of Americans are totally familiar with which Members of Congress are responsible for the current immigration mess.

You can share these links with confidence as they point to a grading system that is highly objective and referenced by numerous national and local news media, as well as many talk-show hosts.

The grades are based on nearly ALL votes and co-sponsorships on legislation that would significantly reduce or increase some form of immigration. Each action is weighted based on the magnitude of the numerical impact on immigration.

These are the Grade Cards that the famous John & Ken Show used in their Human Political Sacrifice to almost unseat Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) in the previous election.

Every website in America for a talk show that claims to oppose illegal immigration should have one of these Grade Card links.


Please let us know of every website that is using one or more of these links.

Don't assume that a website will get around to placing these links if you aren't persistent in insisting on the importance.

To counteract the hundreds of thousands of marching illegal aliens and their friends, we have to leverage where we are strongest.

Some organizations have successfully mounted small anti-illegal protests of their own and earned some helpful media coverage.

Other organizations are leading a brilliant campaign to build private fencing along the Mexican border.

Still others have stirred highly creative publicity campaigns involving toilet brushes for the Los Angeles Mayor, and pennies and cardboard bricks mailed to Members of Congress.

There are many, many great things being done by regular citizens like you and me that are increasing the pressure on Congress.

But nothing will make a lot of difference if the Members of Congress do not believe that their every move is being recorded, tabulated, weighed and publicized to millions of Americans who are paying attention.

By the time of the giant May 1 pro-illegal-immigration marches, can we succeed in unifying the pro-borders Americans around access to congressional vote records and candidates pledges -- through placement of these links on 100 websites?

We'll keep you informed of the overall progress as you keep us informed of your progress.
