    S9: Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill - FOCUS CAMPAIGN

    S.9: U.S. Congressional Focus Campaign

    This bill, `Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007', was sent up to the Senate Judiciary Committee in a very hush-hush manner. Kennedy is the Chair and this is a resurrection of his prior '06 bill, S2611 The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006. There has been almost no press coverage of this legislation. We have the opportunity to let all of Congress know that we are watching and will not accept 'comprehensive' legislation of any kind.
    This is no longer a state issue, it is an American issue and affects every aspect of American life.

    Bill Information

    S.9: `Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007'

    IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

    January 4, 2007

    Mr. REID (for himself, Mr. LEAHY, Mr. SCHUMER, Ms. CANTWELL, Ms. STABENOW, and Mrs. BOXER) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

    A BILL

    To recognize the heritage of the United States as a nation of immigrants and to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to provide for more effective border and employment enforcement, to prevent illegal immigration, and to reform and rationalize avenues for legal immigration, and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

    SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the `Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007'.

    SEC. 2. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

    It is the sense of Congress that the Senate and the House of Representatives should pass, and the President should sign, legislation to recognize the heritage of the United States as a nation of immigrants and to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.) to provide for more effective border and employment enforcement, to prevent illegal immigration, and to reform and rationalize avenues for legal immigration.

    Activist Instructions

    We need ALIPAC Activists to make calls, send letters, faxes, and e-mails to:
    1. members of the Judiciary Committee
    2. bill co-sponsors
    3. your Senators and Congressmen.
    You may want to share with them some articles explaining the severe costs to our country and our citizens. Links are included at the bottom of the page.

    Plan of Action

    Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) introduced the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act Of 2007 (S.9). We would ask that all ALIPAC members participate in a national campaign to contact the list of U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Citizenship we have provided on this post, as well as contacting their state Senators and Congressman to express their outrage and concerns immediately on this bill. We have provided sample letters at the following link to use as well as add your own comments and concerns. We must act quickly on this bill to show our outrage and refusal for any form of Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Our stand is that our government be accountable to the American voting citizens to enforce our current immigration laws and to secure our borders against illegal aliens and terrorists. That is the priority of this government and the point we must all drive home by calling, faxing and emailing our state Senators and Congressman. Please show your support for our cause and take action today.

    Real immigration reform

    Selection of links to supporting information concerning the effects of the Illlegal Alien invasion on our USA
    Please feel free to choose one or more to be added to your letters.

    1. Americans do not support amnesty; prefer enforcement-only approach

    Zogby poll/May 2006-
    http://www.cis.org/articles/2006/2006poll.html

    2. Since 2000, the US has experienced the highest level of immigration in history, with illegal aliens being almost half of new arrivals
    http://www.cis.org/articles/2005/back1405release.html

    3. Americans want our borders secured to reduce illegal immigration and to prevent terrorists from entering our country; Americans support construction of the 700 mile border fence

    http://www.cis.org/articles/2002/Paper2 ... mendations
    http://tancredo.house.gov/irc/images/In ... report.pdf

    4. US population will dramatically increase if amnesty is granted and legal immigration continues at present or increased levels - The Heritage Foundation report by Robert Rector (May 2006) projected that if the illegal alien amnesty of Senate immigration bill S.2611 (from the 109th Congress) was signed into law, 103 million people would be added to the US population in 20 years. This projection was based on giving amnesty to ~10 million illegal aliens as well as the huge increase in legal immigration built into this bill. The projected number is likely to be an under-estimate since: (1) the number of illegal aliens present in the US is probably closer to 30-40 million considering the House Committee on Homeland Security's report on border violence from Fall of 2006 states that: 4 -10 million illegal immigrants came to the US in 2005 alone!!!
    (2) illegal immigration has continued unabated since the Rector report was issued (3) the new S.9 immigration bill may grant amnesty to all illegal immigrants, not just those who have been in the US for 2 years. With the US population currently at >300 million, and the present number of illegal aliens at as many as 4 times the estimate used by Rector, S.9 is likely to increase the US population far more than S.2611. (potentially double the US population in 20 years?).

    5. Americans do not want continuing large population growth (which is due almost exclusively to immigration); Americans want reduced immigration

    http://www.numbersusa.com/hottopic/100306_poll.html

    6. The financial cost of amnesty would be enormous, will cripple this country and substantially increase our national debt of $8.7 trillion (estimates vary but could be in the $trillions)

    After the S.2611 amnesty bill was passed by the Senate, the Congressional Budget Office projected the costs of this bill to be $127 billion over just the first 10 years. This estimate was based on the legalization of ~11 million illegal aliens. Note that citizenship would not be attained until after year 10, at which time immigrants and their relatives would be eligible for all sorts of entitlements, including welfare, etc. Again, this must be a huge underestimate of the true costs for the reasons cited above, and the fact that costs would increase dramatically after year 10.

    CBO report on costs of S.2611-
    http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/75xx/doc7501/s2611spass.pdf

    Importing Poverty: Immigration and Poverty in the United States: A Book of Charts, by Robert Rector
    http://www.heritage.org/Research/Immigration/SR9.cfm

    Excerpt:
    �Massive low-skill immigration works to counteract government anti-poverty efforts. While government works to reduce the number of poor persons, low-skill immigration pushes the poverty numbers up. In addition, low-skill immigration siphons off government anti-poverty funding and makes government efforts to shrink poverty less effective.
    Low-skill immigrants pay little in taxes and receive high levels of government benefits and services. The National Academy of Sciences has estimated that each immigrant without a high school degree will cost U.S. taxpayers, on average, $89,000 over the course of his or her lifetime.[3] This is a net cost above the value of any taxes the immi�grant will pay and does not include the cost of educating the immigrant�s children, which U.S. taxpayers would also heavily subsidize.
    In this way, the roughly six million legal immigrants without a high school diploma will impose a net cost of around a half-trillion dollars on U.S. taxpayers over their lifetimes. The roughly five million illegal immigrants without a high school diploma will cost taxpayers somewhat less because illegal immigrants are eligible for fewer government benefits. However, if these illegal immigrants were granted amnesty and citizenship, as proposed by the Bush Administration and legislated in a recent Senate-passed immigration bill (S. 2611), they could cost tax�payers an additional half-trillion dollars. In total, all immigrants without a high school education could impose a net cost on U.S. taxpayers of around one trillion dollars or more. If the cost of educating the immigrants� children is included, that figure could reach two trillion dollars.[4]�

    7. Amnesty will recapitulate previous amnesties, including the 1986 amnesty, and will stimulate continuing illegal immigration. (The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result!)

    According to INS estimates released in October, 2000, the amnesties granted in 1986 as a result of the Immigration Reform and Control Act significantly contributed to an increase in illegal immigration as the relatives of newly legalized illegal immigrants came illegally to the United States to join their family members. In the decade following the 1986 amnesty, illegal immigration increased dramatically.

    http://www.cis.org/articles/2000/ins1986amnesty.html

    8. Amnesty and/or guest worker programs would harm low-skilled American workers, America�s poor and minorities. They would be forced to compete with the flood of illegal aliens, their wages will be depressed, making it more difficult to improve their socioeconomic condition.

    About half of the nearly 190,000 illegal immigrants deported last year (2006) had criminal records, U.S. authorities said.
    http://www.examiner.com/a-542012~More_I ... Jails.html

    http://today.reuters.com/news/articlene ... rss&rpc=22

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Murders, robberies and other violent crimes reported in the United States jumped 3.7 percent in the first half of the year, continuing a troubling upswing that began in 2005, the FBI said on Monday.

    The FBI said law enforcement agencies reported that robberies soared by a startling 9.7 percent, followed by an increase in murders of 1.4 percent and aggravated assaults of 1.2 percent.

    Last year, the number of violent crimes increased by 2.5 percent, the largest percentage gain in 15 years. The increase came after years of declines.

    The U.S. Justice Department then announced that it would conduct a study of why the crime numbers are increasing, a study that has yet to be completed.

    10. The population growth due to immigration (illegal and legal) is causing environmental damage, congestion, traffic, sprawl, loss of open space, destruction of wildlife habitat and loss of species
    http://www.numbersusa.com/interests/urbansprawl.html


    11. The population growth due to immigration (illegal and legal) is causing loss of farm lands needed to support the growing population
    The rural area lost to development between 1982 and 1997 is about equal to the entire land mass of Maine and New Hampshire combined.
    The rate of rural land lost to development in the 1990s was about 2.2 million acres per year. If this rate continues to the year 2050 � when today�s toddlers are middle-aged � the United States will have lost an additional 110 million acres of rural countryside. That�s about equal to the combined areas of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Virginia.
    Added to the loss of an area equivalent to Maine and New Hampshire, the losses by 2050 will amount to much of the Eastern seaboard.

    An "Immigration Enforcement" Amendment 187 was offered to the Minimum Wage Bill H.2. by Kennedy in the Senate. This amendment was not included in the final version of the bill that passed in the Senate last week. However, after reading this amendment, one has to wonder if this will be at the very least a major section of the Senate S.9 immigration bill.

    Amendment 187 is laden with North American Union/SPP language - see sample below.

    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/R?r ... 001:S01121

    This is much bigger than amnesty.

    Please write and call these Senators immediately!!!
