    DACA Amnesty Now Faces GOP Primary Season Where Most Voters Oppose

    DACA Amnesty Now Faces GOP Primary Season Where Most Voters Oppose

    While many groups, pundits, and lawmakers said DACA Amnesty for illegals would be passed in 2017, ALIPAC fought back and has won the battle to defeat legislative Amnesty in 2017! Yet, de facto Amnesty remains, and more than 12 million illegal immigrants freely roam the United States with little or no real fear of American laws or law enforcement. Even Obama's DACA Amnesty remains in effect, continued through March of 2018 by President Trump!

    Support for Amnesty for illegals is what cost Rep. Eric Cantor his seat in Congress and ALIPAC hopes to dethrone many other Amnesty backing Republicans in the 2018 GOP primaries! Now, ALIPAC is out to endorse and support GOP primary challengers running against Republican incuments named on Kate's List.

    Before lawmakers left DC last night pushing DACA Amnesty considerations back to January and illegals left the capital in defeat, ALIPAC activists were hard at work confronting congressional offices on the phone and rallying support for GOP primary challengers emerging against targets on Kate's List.

    "We were told by many that we could not stop DACA Amnesty from passing in 2017. We were told it was a 'done deal,' yet once again we have defeated legislative Amnesty as we have done many times since 20014," declared William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Now our focus moves fully to the 2018 primaries where we must have a large number of quality candidates running against the Republican incumbents who are backing Amnesty for illegal aliens instead of focusing on protecting the lives of Americans like Kate Steinle who are killed by the thousands each year that our immigration laws go unenforced and sabotaged by special interests in DC. Republican incumbents will be very reluctant to vote on any DACA Amnesty legislation during the primary filing period in Jan-Feb 2018!"

    Americans for Legal Immigration PAC played a key role in defeating Amnesty bills in Washington in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2013-15, and now again in 2017! The organization has also defeated driver licenses and in-state tuition for illegal immigrant bills in more than 25 states in the last 13 years!

    Recently, ALIPAC endorsed the GOP primary challenger campaigns of Joe Billie, Mary Jones, and Shak Hill, who are running against pro-Amnesty Republicans.

    More endorsements will follow right after New Year's!

    I am going to keep calling the US DOJ comment line. 202=353-1555 The lobbying for foreign interests must stop. This can only happen through registered lobbyists under both the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 (Clinton) and the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938 (Roosevelt).


    DOJ Comment Line--202-353-1555 Tell them to enforce the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

    In fact three Democrat Senators sent a letter of protest to the Foreign Agents Registration Unit in 2007 that there was illegal foreign lobbying going on in the US: Schumer McCaskill, Obama

    Thursday, July 10, 2008
    WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer (D-NY), Claire McCaskill (D-MO), and Barack Obama (D-IL) today called on the internal watchdog at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate the agency’s spotty enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), a federal law requiring disclosure of all lobbying contacts made on behalf of foreign entities such as governments and political parties. The senators believe that there have been severe lapses in the enforcement of FARA, allowing certain foreign agents to operate without the sunlight of disclosure. Disclosure is important in order for the American public to know who is influencing U.S. policy from abroad, the senators said.

    “Too many lobbyists are skirting the law and operating in the shadows, and in too many cases, the Justice Department is standing at the light switch, refusing to turn it on. We want answers,” Schumer said. “The public has a right to know when our government is being lobbied by foreign interests and the Department of Justice has a responsibility to uphold and enforce the law in all circumstances.”

    “In a place where we need more transparency, not less, lapses in enforcement of lobbying disclosure laws should not be taken lightly,” McCaskill said. “This is serious matter, and I expect the Inspector General to address it head on to assure the enforcers are truly enforcing the law.”

    “It is unacceptable that lobbyists can exploit loopholes to hide their lobbying contacts on behalf of foreign businesses and governments,” said Senator Obama. “The American people have a right to know who these individuals are representing and which American officials they're lobbying. Abusing the law to hide access and special treatment is exactly the kind of Washington culture that I've been fighting against. I am proud to stand with Senators Schumer and McCaskill to close these loopholes, and I call on the Justice Department to immediately investigate this abuse of the law.”

    The intent of FARA, passed by Congress in 1938, was to bring transparency to the work of lobbyists representing foreign clients by requiring the lobbyists to register with the Department of Justice. But in recent months, multiple cases have surfaced where lobbyists acting as foreign agents have either registered with the DOJ late or not at all. Violations of the disclosure law that go unpunished can undermine U.S. policy and pose national security risks to the American people. Furthermore, any specter of uneven or lax enforcement can render a very important statute toothless.

    Senators Schumer, McCaskill and Obama today asked the DOJ Inspector General for a report on the Department’s enforcement record on FARA, including an analysis of all the considerations taken into account when the Department determines whether or how to enforce the law. The Senators have also called on the Inspector General to take appropriate steps within the Department to look at the causes of uneven or lax enforcement and provide the Attorney General with suggestions as to how to fix any enforcement problems immediately.

    In June, Senators Schumer, McCaskill, and Obama unveiled legislation that would close two loopholes allowing U.S. lobbyists to influence government officials on behalf of foreign clients without having to disclose their activities. The Closing the Foreign Lobbying Loophole Act (S. 3123) would require all lobbyists representing foreign clients to register under FARA, even if they have already registered under Lobbying Disclosure Act (LDA). Under current law, lobbyists registered under LDA are exempt from also registering under the more rigorous FARA. The bill would also require that any lobbying contacts with U.S. officials on behalf of foreign clients be disclosed even when they occur outside of the United States. Currently, the law only covers contacts that occur “within the United States.”

    A copy of the Senators’ letter to DOJ Inspector General Glenn Fine is below.


    July 9, 2008

    Mr. Glenn A. Fine
    United States Department of Justice
    950 Pennsylvania Avenue
    Washington, D.C. 20530

    Dear Mr. Fine,

    It has come to our attention that there have been severe lapses in the enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). We would like to know more about the decision-making process behind FARA enforcement and whether or not enforcement has been uneven or lax over time.

    As you are well aware, FARA was passed in 1938 and requires disclosure of all lobbying contacts made on behalf of foreign governments, individuals, political parties, and corporations. Disclosure is important in order for the American public to know who is influencing U.S. policy from abroad. Recently, we introduced the Closing the Foreign Lobbying Loophole Act (S. 3123) in order to close two loopholes in the law that allow certain foreign agents to operate without the sunlight of disclosure.

    We believe that the requirements under FARA are clear and should be enforced in all circumstances. Violations of the disclosure law that go unpunished can undermine U.S. policy and pose national security risks to the American people. Furthermore, any specter of uneven or lax enforcement can render a very important statute toothless.

    We know that you share our commitment to maintaining the public’s trust in government. We believe that allowing individuals to break the law and operate in the dark on behalf of foreign entities will erode this trust we hold so dear. Therefore, we request an examination of the Department’s enforcement record on FARA, including an analysis of all the considerations taken into account when the Department determines whether or how to enforce the law. We hope that you take appropriate steps within your Department to look into the causes of uneven or lax enforcement and provide the Attorney General or his appropriate subordinate with suggestions on how to fix any enforcement problems immediately. We also request that you transmit to us, and the appropriate congressional committees of jurisdiction, a report on your findings.

    We look forward to hearing from you on this matter.
