    Alabama Focus Campaign

    Alabama

    Mission: Encourage the Senate to Pass the bill which passed the House 92-0, which "requires contractors that do business with the state of Alabama to certify in writing they will not hire illegals, unauthorized aliens". Encourage the passage: "Sen. Scott Beason, R-Gardendale, is sponsoring the Immigration Reform Bill, which is being co-sponsored by 26 of the 35-member Senate. Beason is working to crack down on illegal immigration and wants to require that everyone working in Alabama show a state-issued ID to prove legal residency".

    Task: Call and E-mail all members of the Senate

    Message Example (craft your own)

    Subject line: Contractors Hire Illegal Immigrants

    To the Honorable Senator ___________,

    I'm writing / calling to ask Senator __________ to pass the bill that passed the full House, which "requires contractors that do business with the state of Alabama to certify in writing they will not hire illegals, unauthorized aliens". We need the State of Alabama to enforce immigration laws that they refuse to enforce in DC. Alabama must take action with companies that unscrupulously hire illegal aliens, if we are to protect Americans from the negative impacts of crimes like illegal immigration and all of the associated criminal activity.

    Immigration commission choices under fire

    "I think some members of the commission are happy with the status quo. I don't know who's totally responsible, but I do think special interests figured out a way to take over the commission," Beason said.

    Why did Huckster and McCain get the most votes?!?

    Can somebody in AL PLEASE tell me why Huckabee WON AL?!? And why McAmnesty came in second? I'm literally shocked. You would think this southern state has a large illegal immigration problem and would not want to elect the two worst GOP candidates who will rush amnesty through the first chance they get! Seriously, does anyone have any insight into why they'd vote this way and not for Gov. Romney who has proven he is tough on illegals while governor of my former state, Massachusetts?!? Thank you.

    P.S. Gov. Romney has a long road ahead, but it ain't over yet. Please encourage those in upcoming elections to vote ROMNEY if they don't want 30 million illegals to be given citizenship the minute McAmnesty, Huckster, Clinton or Obama are in the WH! What the hell has happened to my Republican party?!? If McAmnesty or Huckster is the GOP nominee, I will switch to being an Independent again. Sickening!

    Alabama immigration commission recommends ways to curb illegals
    PHILLIP RAWLS

    The commission’s four pages of recommendations include:

    • getting Congress to develop a comprehensive guest worker program that would provide for a timely and adequate supply of workers.

    • encouraging Congress to provide adequate resources to the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies to secure the borders and enforce existing immigration laws.

    • determining what state expenses regarding the impact of illegal immigration are reimbursable from the federal government and making sure the state receives as much funding as possible.

    • geting more Alabama officers to participate in the federal program that has trained state troopers to enforce immigration laws and then use the officers to target areas where illegal immigration has caused the most problems.

    • determining the legal status of everyone arrested in Alabama and denying bond for illegal immigrants.

    • prohibiting anyone from registering a vehicle in Alabama without state or federal identification, proof of ownership and proof of insurance.

    • impounding a vehicle if a driver doesn’t have a valid license or posses current insurance coverage.

    • creating a reliable system that allows Alabama employers to verify a worker’s legal status before being hired. The system should be evaluated first by using it for companies getting contracts from state, city and county governments.

    Committee move may kill immigration bills
    Posted by Brian Lyman, Capitol Bureau April 24, 2008 10:04 AM
    Categories: Breaking News

    A Senate committee this morning delayed votes on two illegal immigration bills, a move the sponsor says has effectively killed them.

    One bill would give the state the power to enforce a 1990 constitutional amendment declaring English the official language of Alabama. A second bill would have required the state's driver license test to be administered in English.

    Immigration Bills Die In Alabama Legislature
    By The Associated Press
    .

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A House committee has approved a
    Senate-passed bill that requires people who apply for public
    assistance from the state to prove they are in the country legally.
    The bill by Sen. Arthur Orr, R-Decatur, was approved by the
    House Judiciary Committee on a voice vote and could be considered
    by the full House on May 19, the final day of the 2008 regular
    session.
    With two days remaining in the session, most bills to control
    illegal immigration have died. Orr's bill and a measure to prohibit
    state agencies from entering into contracts with companies that
    employ illegal aliens are among the few that still have a chance of
    receiving final passage.
