    Pro-amnesty Republicans target of ALIPAC's lobbying effort

    A national anti-illegal immigration group has launched a lobbying effort aimed at nearly three dozen Republican members of Congress who are trying to help President Obama and the Democrats pass amnesty for illegal immigrants.

    Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) has published the list of the GOP lawmakers who it believes need to face primary challenges in 2014. The list includes high-profile congressmen like House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and 2012 vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan.

    William Gheen, president of ALIPAC, says those House Republicans who favor amnesty need to face strong challengers in next year's primaries.

    "If we don't get the GOP primary challengers, they will pass an amnesty in 2014," he predicts. "If we get the strong GOP primary challengers for the 34 traitor Republicans, we can take them out of office."

    According to Gheen, pro-amnesty Republicans are mobilized in a campaign of their own.

    "The big money interests inside the Republican Party – the Karl Roves and others like Grover Norquist – are moving to protect the amnesty supporters that are on that list of 34, and they're going after the more base conservative and tea party people to try to eradicate us," he states. "If they win that move, then they will pass amnesty in 2014."

    Gheen says voters in those 34 individual districts must take an active role in finding and supporting candidates who will oppose amnesty.
