    Amnesty Advocates Looking to Co-opt ‘Bloody Sunday’ Selma Commemoration

    Pro-amnesty advocates will try to co-opt Sunday’s commemoration of the “Bloody Sunday” march in Selma–one of the most seminal moments in the civil rights movement and the history of the country–to again push the false narrative that amnesty for illegal immigrants is the new civil rights movement.

    The Alabama Coalition for Immigration Justice is mobilizing and will bus amnesty advocates for the march, which will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the seminal march for voting rights for black American citizens. According to AL.com, the group reportedly declared that, “throughout the weekend, immigrants will stand with thousands of others converging in Selma at this historic moment to affirm their role in the struggle against racism and oppression.”

    As Breitbart News has emphasized, “the civil rights movement of the 1960s was about ensuring that black Americans received all of the rights they were due as citizens of the United States while today’s pro-amnesty movement is about demanding full rights for non-citizens who entered the country illegally.”

    But that has not stopped amnesty advocates, like gay activists have tried to do with their movement, from trying to tie the amnesty movement to the black civil rights movement.

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), for instance, has declared that the amnesty movement is “our Selma.”

    “This is our Selma and we will walk, we will march, we will be arrested, we will do anything and everything it takes to make sure families are protected in this nation,” Gutierrez recently said.

    Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) recently invoked the voting rights and civil rights marches and said at an “Immigration Day Action” event that the amnesty movement is the civil rights battle for millennials. He also bluntly admitted that the amnesty movement “will decide who is in charge of this country for the next 20 or 30 years.”

    Even Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), who was beaten on that fateful Sunday while heroically marching for voting rights that were being denied to U.S. citizens, has tried to tie the amnesty movement to the civil rights movement.

    He again did so again at a February 25 event at the Washington D.C. on the civil rights movement that left a Democrat in attendance dismayed. Donald A. Collins, a Democrat who lives in Washington, D.C., was disheartened that someone he considered a “true hero” was pushing comprehensive amnesty legislation. He pointed out that “not all African-Americans share this delusion” that the amnesty movement is the new civil rights movement.

    “Regardless of his political position on this issue, Lewis will always be a hero to this Democrat,” Collins recently wrote. “But the catastrophic impact of his Open Borders position on the upward mobility of so many young African-Americans, especially the 25% of young African-Americans who are unemployed in the District of Columbia, cannot be justified or permitted.”

    He added that if Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and “Lewis think that letting in endless numbers of aliens, legally and illegally, will ensure Democratic hegemony, they are sadly mistaken. They are inspiring a rebellion by an increasingly widespread and diverse group of Americans who are watching their quality of life utterly collapse.”

    “More and more Americans are experiencing the negative consequences of mass immigration. They know wages are declining. They see unemployment rising. They are witness to the collapse of our rule of law,” Collins continued. “John Lewis may have been right in the past, but no progressive can support transforming America from a middle class nation of under 200 million people in 1965 into the projected 500 million poverty-stricken Americans of 2050. Fighting for equality means fighting for the victims of mass immigration, including African-Americans, the unemployed, and the working class.”

    Collins added that “the fight against mass immigration isn’t in contradiction to the Civil Rights movement. It’s part of the same struggle.”

    U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow has repeatedly written to President Barack Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus to warn against the detrimental impact that massive amnesty legislation will have on struggling black Americans trying to climb up the economic ladder.

    “The obvious question is whether there are sufficient jobs in the low-skilled labor market for both African-Americans and illegal immigrants,” Kirsanow wrote last year. “The answer is no.” He added that grants of amnesty to illegal immigrants will also “serve as a magnet to prospective illegal immigrants and further depress employment opportunities and wages for African-Americans.”

    In the 1990s, Coretta Scott King, the wife of Martin Luther King Jr., and the late Rep. Barbara Jordan (D-TX) did not sound like today’s black Democrats on immigration.

    When Senators were attempting to loosen restrictions on employers hiring illegal immigrants, Scott reminded Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) that “America does not have a labor shortage.”

    “With roughly 7 million people unemployed, and double that number discouraged from seeking work, the removal of employer sanctions threatens to add additional U.S. workers to the rolls and drive down wages,” she wrote. “Moreover, the repeal of employer sanctions will inevitably add to our social problems and place an unfair burden on the poor in the cities in which most new immigrants cluster–cities which are already suffering housing shortages and insufficient human needs services.”

    Jordan (D-TX), who chaired the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, said that “it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest.”

    “Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave,” Jordan said during one Congressional hearing.“The top priorities for detention and removal, of course, are criminal aliens. But for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process.”

    Last week, National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO) simply asked, “Where are the Barbara Jordan’s of our times?”

    The former officers emphasized that the “American people are trapped in a conundrum” because “they find themselves appealing to Congress to effectively address nationwide Immigration Insecurity while fully realizing that Congresses failure to insist that current Immigration Laws are fully enforced is precisely what has lead to the current crises.”

    President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush, who failed to get the comprehensive amnesty legislation he desired when he was president, will attend the “Bloody Sunday” march. More than 100,000 people are expected to be in attendance in Selma for the festivities.

    The audacity to exploit the importance of Selma to black Americans as a day of whining for illegal aliens is just beyond words, beyond the pale, beyond comprehension. It's sickening.

    Tony Lee wrote a great article to expose it.

    And I don't know who Donald A Collins of DC is, but God Bless You, Sir, for writing about it so well:

    He again did so again at a February 25 event at the Washington D.C. on the civil rights movement that left a Democrat in attendance dismayed. Donald A. Collins, a Democrat who lives in Washington, D.C., was disheartened that someone he considered a “true hero” was pushing comprehensive amnesty legislation.

    Donald A Collins is a free lance writer living in DC who is also a long-time Board member of Federation for American Immigration Reform Movement, FAIR.

    http://www.vdare.com/users/donald-a-collins-0

    Hey, did you all know that FAIR is officially calling for a Moratorium on Immigration? I just saw it on their website:

    Our Purpose

    Today's Immigration

    Today the United States is receiving more immigrants than at any time in our history. Immigration has become an important issue because it affects virtually every aspect of life in America. With more than a million legal and illegal immigrants settling in the United States each year, immigration has an impact on education, health care, government budgets, employment, the environment, crime and countless other areas of American life. It is evident to most Americans that large-scale immigration is not serving the needs and interests of the country.
    Our Response

    FAIR advocates a temporary moratorium on all immigration except spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens and a limited number of refugees. A moratorium would allow us to hold a national debate and devise a comprehensive immigration reform strategy. A workable immigration policy is one that would allow us time to regain control of our borders and reduce overall levels of immigration to more traditional levels of about 300,000 a year.


    FAIR believes America can and must have an immigration policy that is nondiscriminatory and is designed to serve the social, economic and environmental needs of our country. It is a policy that all recent polls show has the overwhelming support of the American public.
    http://www.fairus.org/about

    I would scrap the "limited number of refugees". Refugees need to take refuge in areas near their own country such as neighboring countries or at least countries on the same continent.

    Maybe we need to get together with all the organizations fighting to stop illegal immigration and all officially call for the Moratorium which I think needs to be for at least 10 years.

    There is a relationship between illegals and Black Sunday. American blacks are here because southern farmers sought slave labor, illegal aliens are here because republican donors demand cheap labor. Republicans have become supporters of what their first republican President opposed. Republicans are known for flip-flopping, tho, no surprises.

    It's the great irony of our party and what has happened to it. Unbelievable. Now I must say that it's not the majority of Republicans because 167 brave souls defied the House leadership and voted to defund DHS to stop Obama Amnesty, and 90% of the members of the Republican Party oppose illegal immigration and are even calling for a "pause" which in real language is a Moratorium on new immigration. But that doesn't undo the irony of still far too many members of Congress and the majority of our so far wannabes for President all claiming in one way or another the need to reform our broken system by either giving amnesty to illegal aliens already here and/or expanding, streamlining or in some way changing the legal immigration route to at the end of the day increase the number of foreign workers in the US who compete with Americans for jobs. And we know that black Americans endure the biggest brunt of this.

    So, please don't lose sight of the fact that at the end of another day, it's still mostly just Republicans fighting for American Jobs for American Workers, so without us Republicans, our nation would already have been sold off lock, stock and barrel to the drug cartels behind the travesty of illegal immigration.

    To exert our full force as a majority, we need 6 more GOP Senators and 1 Loyal President.
