    NumbersUSA Calls for Assistance to Defeat Ag Bill Amnesty

    You've probably heard by now that Senator Larry Craig is planning to offer
    his AgJOBS amnesty bill, S. 359, as an amendment to the Iraq Supplemental
    funding bill when it comes to the floor either late this week or early next
    week. If Sen. Craig is allowed to offer this amnesty amendment, it is
    likely that it will pass. It would be difficult for House conferees to
    remove the amnesty in its entirety from the supplemental. It also is
    unlikely that the House would vote down the conference report, even if it
    included AgJOBS, because no one wants to delay funding for our troops.



    NumbersUSA is doing everything we can think of to stop Sen. Craig from
    offering the amendment in the first place. We're also working hard to
    convince Senators to vote against AgJOBS if it is offered. We need your
    help, though.



    We would like to put together a list of all the organizations across the
    country that oppose the AgJOBS amnesty. The list won't help us convince the
    Senate that the vast majority of their constituents oppose the bill unless
    it includes well over 100 organizations from every part of the country.
    This email is being sent to around 90 organizations-all we have been able to
    identify-so we have a ways to go.



    We are asking two things of your organization:



    1. Can we have your permission to add your organization's name to the
    list of groups that oppose AgJOBS? The list will be just that-a simple,
    alphabetical list of each group that gives us permission to list it, and
    NumbersUSA will distribute it to every Senate office immediately, and then
    to House and Senate conferees, if necessary (i.e., if AgJOBS passes and goes
    to conference). In case you need more information, I've attached a short
    description of the AgJOBS amnesty. Additional information about AgJOBS is
    available on our website at: http://www.numbersusa.com/hottopic/AGJOBS.htm.

    2. Would you pass this email along to every other organization you know
    about that is likely to oppose the AgJOBS amnesty and ask them to add their
    names to the list, too?

    Since time is of the essence-the Iraq Supplemental could come to the Senate
    floor as early as Thursday- we would appreciate a response from you as soon
    as possible. Please reply to Mike Frohlich at Michael@numbersusa.com or
    just hit reply and let us know if we can add your group's name to the list.

    Thank you for helping us stop another amnesty!

    Mr. Frohlich:

    Thank you for contacting us about this issue. Americans for Legal
    Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) has been gearing up to work against this amnesty
    attempt. NumbersUSA is doing exactly what our movement needs by reaching

    In the spirit of improved communications and cooperation, I am activating
    our ALIPAC Action Network on this issue and will post your message to our
    site, notify our members and the other organizations we are in contact
    with.

    You have my permission to add Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

    Fellow immigration reform leaders:

    I just received a message from NumbersUSA and they are calling for assistance to defeat the attempted Ag Bill Amnesty.

    You can read the message and ALIPAC's response at this link.

    http://www.alipac.us/ftopict-1367.html

    We have agreed to assist and we are activating our ALIPAC Action Network to spread the word. Most of you have heard me speak of the need for greater communication and cooperation among immigration reform groups.

    I'd like to point out that NumbersUSA request for coalition on this matter is one of the first such invites we have received from a national organization. Other organizations have asked other groups to support what they are doing, but I feel NumbersUSA's invite to coalate is the way things should be done.

    This has been part of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC's stance since the begining. I hope that you will assist NumbersUSA by forwarding this information and joining the battle to defeat this amnesty attempt.

    Our issue is on fire across the nation now and heading for a critical mass. Let's all work together to show these politicians what we can do when we are united.

    Kind Regards,
