The time to fight amnesty is now, say the leaders of 10 activist groups, but with leaders in the Congress like Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the fight looks more like a dog rolling over for its master.
That’s why the groups – which include tea party and anti-illegal immigration activists – have signed a letter calling on Republicans to oust Boehner and McConnell from their respective posts in the House and Senate, citing evidence they have colluded with the White House to legalize five million illegal aliens. That, they say, can only be interpreted as an open invitation for more illegals to cross the border.
An omnibus spending bill up for a vote this week, possibly as early as tonight or Thursday, includes spending for the Department of Homeland Security that will be used to implement amnesty. Nearly $1 billion in aid would go to integrate illegals into communities nationwide.
William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration and one of the signatories to the letter, says the bill before the House is a betrayal of the values represented by more than 70 percent of the people who voted in last month’s mid-term elections.
