    ALIPAC Goes after South Carolina House!

    Friends,

    Today is an important day. Our supporters have fought a long hard battle in South Carolina to get a state immigration enforcement bill passed that will have a true impact like the states of GA, OK, and AZ.

    The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce has fought us tooth and nail and has used their influence to get the SC House to back off of requiring all employers to use the E-Verify system and they want to limit the legislation to only include companies that do state contracts.

    Yesterday, the SC state Senate made an important move. They placed the blame firmly on the SC House! Please read the details....

    This pressure can work, if thousands of us light up the phone lines and inboxes of the SC House today and Thursday!

    Let's saddle up ALIPACers and let's ride together on SC! Adding SC to our victory list would greatly enhance our momentum in the states and help us to influence other states in 2008.

    Our operations have helped make a difference, as an equation for success in Oregon, Maine, Utah, and Mississippi this year.

    Please follow me in by taking the steps I will take today.

    Calls followed by e-mails, faxes, or letters.

    1. Contact any friends or family members in SC and ask them to call their SC state house representatives to complain about the House's resistance to requiring all employers to only hire legal workers. We need ALIPACers on the ground in SC and ALIPACers with contacts in SC to generate as many calls by South Carolinians as possible.

    2. Even if you do not live in SC, follow this link to the directory of House Reps. If you have the time, call and e-mail all of them! If your time is limited, please select a minimum of 10 Representatives at random to contact and add your voice to our effort. If you are in California, get on the phones to SC! If you are in Florida or Texas, get on the phones to SC. Let's focus our power.

    3. Use my message as an example, to create your own subject line and message. Make sure your call and e-mail is personalized to each Representative you contact. Make sure you call first and then follow up with a written copy for maximum effectiveness.

    "Hello, may I speak with Representative ______ please? (yes/no proceed) I am calling because news reports say that the South Carolina House is trying to stop an immigration enforcement bill from requiring all SC businesses to verify they only hire Americans and legal immigrants.

    I want you to support and pass the immigration reform bill S 392 with language that requires ALL employers to hire only legal workers. We need legislation that will protect American workers and South Carolinians from lost jobs, wages, and taxes taken by illegal aliens.

    Please pass a bill as soon as possible that will require ALL businesses in SC to use the E-Verify system and only hire legal workers. I will be watching the SC House closely on this matter.

    The SC House should follow the lead of Georgia, Utah, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Arizona, Oregon, and Maine by passing effective immigration enforcement legislation at the state level.

    Sincerely,

    _______"

    Let's roll on South Carolina ALIPACers!

    Immigration Reform Bill, S 392

    I was unable to place the phone calls due to a very fixed retirement income, but I did send the fax to ALL the members of the house and expressed the extreme urgency of this situation.

    I am very proud to be an American and to have served her proudly during the Vietnam "Conflict". And I am also proud to be a member of this great organization and will do what I can to aid in the cause.

    Thank you for writing but I am afraid you are mis informed. The House conferees on the immigration bill have signed it and the Senate has not. We are prepared to make everyone E- Verify.

    God Bless,

    Thank you for expressing your view on the illegal immigration issue. It is important to me to know the issues that are important to you.

    As to S 392, the illegal immigration bill, now in conference committee, may I clear up a few misunderstandings and explain a little of the bill. The House and the Senate each passed their own version of a bill on the illegal immigration issue. The Senate has not taken up the House bill, but the House has taken up the Senate bill and amended the Senate version to be the same as the House version. The Senate would not agree with the House amendment which is why S 392 is now in conference committee (a committee of three Representatives and three Senators), which is the procedure for ironing out the differences between the Senate bill and the House amendment. Contrary to information you must have been given, the SC House is not trying to stop the bill but has the toughest position on the bill. The SC Senate's position on this bill is so weak, in my opinion, that no bill would be as good or better. The I-9 Form that is being talked about is in neither the House or the Senate bill; therefore, would require authorization of "free conference" which is unlikely to happen.

    I am in agreement with the House position, which includes E-Verification of work status and penalties to employers who do not comply with properly verifying the employment status.

    I hope this aids your understanding of this issue. If I may be future service please let me know.

    Sincerely,
    SC Rep. Glenn Hamilton
    District 20

    I agreed with the senate. We need to provide stiff immigration laws in order to protect our every day working citizens. My colleagues need to move this issue to for forefront. Thanks
