Is anti-amnesty campaign working?

Congress confused over 'comprehensive immigration reform'

It's on-again. It's off-again. It's on-again. It's off-again.

That's what's happening in the halls of Congress with the so-called "comprehensive immigration reform" plan that many Americans see as a new amnesty law for illegal aliens.

The confusion in the Capitol coincides with a new campaign launched by WND Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah to flood the U.S. Senate with protest letters.

"It's working," says Farah. "So we've got to keep the pressure mounting."

"The No Amnesty Pledge," a campaign designed to thwart consideration of "comprehensive immigration reform" in Congress, is now also affording citizens the opportunity to thank Arizona.

"Amnesty will spell the death knell of this country," says the organizer of the campaign designed to flood the U.S. Senate with letters of sharp protest. "Amnesty will tear this country apart," says Farah. "When 70 percent of Americans support Arizona's dramatic and courageous action to fill the void of federal failure on policing our borders, Washington is about to flout the will of the people once again. This is a brazen action to buy illegal votes. This is utter contempt for the rule of law and the will of the people. It must be stopped. This will be a genie that cannot be placed back in the bottle."

To combat it, Farah came up with "The No Amnesty Pledge."

It's an easy and inexpensive way for American citizens to make their voice heard effectively throughout the entire U.S. Senate – reaching all 100 members with "The No Amnesty Pledge," he says. And all at a cost of just $24.95.

"I want you to visualize boxes of these protest messages arriving in every member's office every day," explains Farah. "They are guaranteed to be delivered by Fed Ex. It's the power of collective action. It demonstrates that we mean business – that Americans will not accept the destruction of their country lying down."

If you're tired of jammed Capitol switchboards, fax machines getting turned off and the hassle of writing letters only to your own representative and two senators, this program offers you a real bargain in getting your voice heard in Washington.

A dozen members of Congress sent unsolicited testimonials to the power of an earlier "pink slips" campaign, which raised objections to government spending and several other issues, both in changing minds and emboldening the opposition. Five members of Congress held a press conference on the Capitol grounds to commend the program. Sen. Jim DeMint went on Fox News Channel to extol it.

"This is a powerful new vehicle that allows busy Americans to be part of a major demonstration of power and discontent," says Farah. "Don't wait. Who knows how quickly the Senate may act on this plan to increase the size of the constituency of those who know their days are numbered."

Make your voice heard now through "The No Amnesty Pledge."

Meanwhile, here is the text of the letter of encouragement to Arizona Gov. Brewer:

"Thank you for your courage in taking a stand on behalf of all American citizens through the signing of the recent illegal alien legislation.

"It is the federal government that has failed your state and the rest of our country by not following the Constitution. Article IV, Section 4 states: 'The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.'

"There is little question that a silent invasion of our country has been underway for too long. The action taken by you and your legislature is restrained, reasonable and common-sensical. Washington is not living up to its own promises to build the border fence that would alleviate many of the problems Arizona and other border states are having.

"I hope this letter serves as encouragement to you and your citizens. America stands with you and appreciates you."

Like the letters to the U.S. senators, each letter to Gov. Brewer is personally and appropriately addressed, includes the name of the sender and is shipped by Fed Ex.
