Immigration Reform (is) For Dummies.

stop amnesty  immigration reform

I am laying out ten talking points to argue against the passing of the House Amnesty Bill.  There is no reason for Republicans to even think of doing this. It is self-defeating.  They insist this bill is not Amnesty.  They refuse to accept the fact that Hispanics do not create more businesses, but poverty. They cannot promise border security and refuse to acknowledge the influence of the Communist Party and other factions heck-bent on making our system a one-party system. I have spoken about these points before, but it must be repeated.

This is part One of Two, but the most important arguments are here I believe. It takes a very long time to edit, but since neither one of my representatives are holding a town hall, and I can’t drive to the nearest 4 hour away location, I decide to help by offering our own talking points. Numbers USA is phenomenal!  You should check out their page today.  Conservatives need to learn to be pro-active and not just reactive.  It shows weakness that we’re not dominating the conversation, but then it’s the Rinos, not us, that are the problem.  We are all doing a great job by keeping our voices heard. We just have to keep flexing our muscles and speaking out against the injustices. Thank you. Enjoy the show.

The GOPe Is Pushing Amnesty Because They Are Just A Bunch of Wimps!

If you have read some of my articles, you will have seen parts of this before, but the word needs to get out, and I am hoping with a video we will keep the conversation alive through a different venue. Our GOP is pandering for votes behind our backs.  If they were proud of what they were doing, they would be talking about it every day or posting it all over their Facebook walls. It’s bad enough that Fox News continues to ignore the subject. Amnesty is the GOP’s ObamaCare and needs to be part of the conversation.  I will have some updates on this, but good news is hard to find because Rino work in sneaky ways.

One of the issues that bothered me was the Steve King accusations.  Steve King was talking about having Town Halls to talk about Amnesty, and the subject has just about disappeared. Luckily, everything Cantor and Boehner threw at him (smears) didn’t stick. He was right about young illegals smuggling drugs, but that didn’t stop Boehner from threatening to remove him from committees. These are delays and setbacks put in our way to stop us, by none other than our frenemy Boehner who will stop at nothing to antagonize Conservatives in the House.  Paul Ryan has also mentioned at his town meeting in Racine which included illegals, that the vote might be delayed until October, which is fine with me, as long as there is transparency in the process.

Dear Governor Palin, Please Help Us Stop Amnesty By Calling Us To Action!

 PICTURE

Dear Sarah,

I have never asked you for anything, but I am asking you to please lead the charge in helping us stop the Amnesty Bill from passing in the House.

RUBIO is R.I.P. for me, so is McCain and the rest of the Gang of 8. Their careers mean nothing. Our country does. We’re stuck cleaning the damage they did by passing Amnesty in the Senate. As if that was not enough, they have the gall  to continue working against us by targeting House Republicans to pass it there (see link below).  They are disrespecting Americans and disregarding the Rule of Law.

This AMNESTY bill is beatable, but ACTIVISM is needed.  We can target our representatives the way big business and the Gang of 8 have targeted them.

Focus is the key to success. I’m here to focus, not squander time. Based on all that I have read so far, if Amnesty passes, it will create a permanent progressive majority, and add an estimated 30 million new Democratic voters after all is said and done. I am stunned by those numbers, and the fact that not one election has garnered the Hispanic vote for Republicans, so why do Republicans vote for it?

I believe our Representatives need to hear and know the facts.  I’ve quoted these stats several times – from a Pew Research Poll Mark Levin read on his show: http://wwwthefollowup.blogspot.  Numbers don’t lie. The message is short, quick to read and easy to pass along to our Representatives who seem to be clueless and poorly informed on the matter. Pompous and pretentious Eric Cantor is on a “Become America” tour to educate us on Immigration Reform. I believe we need to remind Cantor, Boehner, and Ryan that their job is to protect us, not to jeopardize our national security by pushing an agenda that legalizes illegals. Terrorists do a good job of gaming the system every time politicians weaken the laws.  Making laws about feelings is not the purpose of making laws!

So, I ask: Where is the urgency to stop this bill???

Sarah, the last time you called on us to contact our Senators we did. It made a huge difference!  Here we have a supposed majority in the house. We could win, but we have no leadership in the House. (Both mean well, but Michele Bachmann is too ineffective and Steve King only has 12,000 likes on his page.) We need someone who gets results by calling us, the troops, to action. It is my belief that it is better to be not to wait until the bill is passed to have twenty-twenty hind sight and complain about what happened after the fact.  Like I said at the beginning. I couldn’t care less about anyone’s career. I care about the country.

We can continue to push for Hillary, the White House and the Pentagon to be convicted over Benghazi (we need aggressive investigations), and we can continue to support Ted Cruz and others in defunding ObamaCare, but this particular issue can be stopped. Now. It is within our power to:

 Seize the Opportunity. Act. And Make a Difference.

Darling Trey Gowdy has betrayed this country by pushing for a “humanitarian pathway to citizenship”, from I understand, to grease and line his fancy former-prosecuting pockets. I do believe that if enough pressure is applied, though, we can teach our Representatives the evils of this bill. We can make them see (with proof) that it is a communist-conceived agenda, and that all they are doing is helping to make that communist dream come true. I love the word communist.

Luis Gutierrez, former Marxist-Leninist of the Socialist Party in Puerto Rico, was enlisted by John Boehner to co-write the bill.  Paul Ryan is in charge of making sure Republicans vote for it.  Ryan makes no sense trying to justify the bill or his own actions. He wouldn’t even go on Mark Levin’s show after meeting with Gutierrez, even though the communist agitator and amnesty activist (I refuse to call Gutierrez a far left liberal) proudly displays photos of Ryan visiting Chicago on his wall. If Ryan wouldn’t talk to Mark Levin, why would we expect him or anyone else in DC to listen to our concerns? (Ryan eventually went on the show, but it shows the alienation and distance they have with their base).

I have tried to call attention to the matter on Twitter, Facebook, and my own wall, and there is interest, but the Zimmerman trial and the non-issue of race relations dominates the news. It is disappointing that our own network is intentionally not covering Immigration Reform. This results in Amnesty being inexistent, and I find the complacency unsettling! Let’s not wait until its too late.

Congress is in Recess August 2nd. That’s our chance. South Carolina, Virginia, Ohio are in particular states that can help overturn this bill, according to Steve King. Maybe we can stop some representatives on the target list from being tempted to sell us out. Maybe we can do Town Halls. Definitely we need to contact our Representatives not just via email, or voicemail, or even once! WE just need to show up and make some noise locally, often and like lobbyists who nag their own (nicely of course). But we can’t sit around and do nothing.

AMNESTY is not about our leaders, their corruption or even jobs, it’s about National Security and the preservation of a two-party system. Let’s not feel sorry for anyone. Let’s put this on top of our agenda and do something about it today!

Thank you, Sarah.  If you made this call to get us moving I would be grateful..

I am, faithfully yours,

Isabel

P.S.  I love this picture of you. It shows you don’t let anyone invade your space. I would trust you not to lead by not letting anyone invade (or reward anyone for crossing) our borders illegally, and I’m a proud Hispanic.

fists up Sarah

We Have a Huge Problem, Dallas!

gop amnesty 1986

The Hispanic Vote in the Republican Party

These statistics are taken from a Pew Research Poll.

 1980  56% Carter     Reagan    35%

1984  61% Mondale Reagan    37%

 1988  69% Dukakis  Bush 41   30%

(Amnesty in 1986 resulted in 7% drop)

1992  61% Clinton   Bush 41   25%

1996  72% Clinton   Dole         21%

2000  62% Gore       Bush 43   35% 

(After 6 yrs as Gov, Bush trails Gore by 27%)

 2004  58% Kerry     Bush 43   40%

2008  67% Obama   McCain   31%

2012  71% Obama   Romney   27%

About 2.6 million illegals were amnestied in 1986 (over a million the number projected), but only one fourth voted for Bush 41 in 1992. Bob Dole supported amnesty, but he got 21%, the lowest of all. If the Amnesty Bill is passed, it is projected that the estimated 11 million that will be legalized could be as high as 20 million, according to various sources.  With those facts and the Republican Party’s track record in mind, here is George W. Bush on “Immigration Reform.” Please go straight to the 7:00 minute mark where talk on reform begins.

I am not laughing!!

This clip was to speak about what he is doing in Africa, which I found compelling enough; however, in politics there is always something behind the photo-op. George Bush doesn’t want to make news by criticizing the President or weighing in on controversial issues. He says he wants to stay off stage in politics, unless there’s an issue he believes in, but he chimes in anyway. The reporter smoothly made the transition for him by adding that he has one he cares deeply about “You tried very hard to get Comprehensive Immigration Reform through.. How big a missed opportunity will it be if it FAILS this time around?”

George Bush says “it’s important to fix a broken system, (psst, that’s taken straight out of the communist playbook on Immigration. Please go to my previous article for the exact quote and how long it’s been said.) to treat people with respect, and to have confidence in our capacity to assimilate people. Its a difficult bill to pass because there’s a lot of moving parts. The Legislative process is an ugly process, but it looks like they’re making progress.”

With a war on terror not called terror going on, four scandals and a mess of an economy.. George Bush decides to discuss this. I would much rather hear him talk about Benghazi or Egypt, as what he did best in office was to protect us.

I know people like him, but if I hear they like him one more time, I will simply answer it this way:  How much does likability COST US?  Amnesty is no laughing matter.  The 20 million added illegals is no laughing matter, so can someone please help me wipe that grin off of George Bush’s face?! Thank you.

jack ass

Here is Bush 43 peaking at a citizenship ceremony in Dallas, again, insisting that we have a problem.. that the laws governing the immigration system aren’t working; that the system is broken, and we have to be more compassionate.

Mr. Bush, the politicians are broken, and that is why the laws are not working!

After all I have learned about Immigration Reform being a Communist-driven agenda, I personally wonder why anyone would come out to support this bill, and yet, here they are. The Bushes. Pushing Amnesty when they know we do not want it.  When they (should know) it will not help the Republican Party.  Are the Bushes getting Alynsky-itish?  Based on what I’ve seen.. It looks like they might be. We have a huge problem, Dallas!

The Communist Party USA Has Infiltrated the GOP. I knew it!

obamarubio

Image courtesy of the Looking Spoon has been cropped.

By Isabel Matos

No, Marco Rubio is not a Communist. But he may as well be.  Did you know Immigration Reform is part of long-standing agenda of the Communist Party USA, and that the Gang of Eight Bill was conceived and written by its members? Not only that, the bill that is being drafted for the House is also being co-written by a former Marxist-Leninist from Puerto Rico who we call a far-left Democrat, and others we call “Progressives”. I knew we had infiltrators in the GOP and wanted names, but I didn’t think the powerful forces behind it were this entrenched. How stupid are the Republicans for making bills with Communists? They should have known better than to legislate with Communists! And then make us feel like we’re obstacles in their way. Shameful!

Despite my lack of faith in Congress and the Senate to do what is right (I don’t expect much from them based on past performance), the reality of this is disheartening!  How are we supposed to compete in the arena of ideas and arguments against Amnesty if experienced Alinsky-ites are pushing it through. Like I said, I expected infiltration from Islamist groups and LaRaza. (May 2013): “Apparently the senators wanted to make sure that leftist and Islamist advocacy organizations (CASA, La Raza, MALDEF, and CAIR and other Islamist groups) would not simply be grant recipients themselves, but would also be entrenched on the “New Immigrant Councils” that will help guide strategy, funding, and implementation at the local level. One could guess why the four Democrats on the Gang of Eight wanted leftist and Islamist organizations with such “legal and advocacy” experience in behalf of immigrants placed on the new immigrant councils, but why did the four Republicans agree to it?” But if this is so pre-set, what can we do?

He is not alone, but let’s face it, Marco Rubio IS the poster child for this fiasco of a bill!  I am so disgusted and disappointed at him that I will let the facts speak for themselves and hope for a massive outcry by voters to defy and decry what is going on.  It is probably the tip of the iceberg.  We need to know more. We need to know where all of the money is coming from, who else is behind this bill.  We must expose our Senators who talk the way they do, and betray the Rule of Law they way they do because they broke bread with Commies.  Going against the will of the American people is not acceptable! I propose we share this with everyone we know, our Senators, our Representatives and all of our friends, and demand answers, to stop it. But how? What else can be done? Unfortunately, I do not believe writing letters is going to change the course this bill is on. We are on the defensive again at the last minute. Our leaders have really let us down.

The House GOP Caucus is meeting tomorrow. Labrador was cited as saying they don’t have a “Marco Rubio” to help the house to work the bill. The caucus will have a close door meeting, Leadership John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Trey Gowdy-Sub committee on Immigration, and Bob Goodlatte, Judiciary Chairman (of the Benghazi Hearings), will speak. After that any Congressman can voice his/her opinion on S 744 or any bills passed through committee. I predict Boehner will, as he usually does, pretend to be on our side at first, then have a bill signed similar to the one in the Senate to present to Obama. He will help make amnesty the law of the land.  House Speaker John Boehner, has enlisted former Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan to promote the House  plan. He is working with Luis Gutierrez, former Marxist-Leninist Puerto Rican Socialist Party member, and Xavier Becerra -both members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and longtime amnesty activists.  Below are quotes from the article by James Simpson:

The U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration-reform plan, as well as a  strikingly similar plan now being backed by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and a bi-partisan House “Gang,” both offer the “roadmap to citizenship” originally conceived and carefully developed by members of the Communist Party USA working  within the Democratic Party and the radical left activist network for the  purpose of using amnestied illegals to build a “permanent progressive majority.”

enemies within

Researcher and blogger Trevor Loudon, is about to publish a book titled “The  Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress. WND readers got an exclusive sneak preview of one chapter, titled “Latino  Immigrants: Tools to Ensure a ‘Governing Coalition’ for the Left.”

According to Loudon, the Communist Party USA has influenced U.S. policy toward  illegals since at least the 1960s. He traces the history, showing how communists and communist-founded organizations slowly built the movement from the ground  up. While other groups certainly joined the effort, the communists were always at the center. The names of all the commies are in read.

(background)… Bert Corona, the “Communist Father of the ‘Immigrants Rights’ movement.” In  1964, Corona, Cesar Chavez and future Democratic Socialists of America member  Dolores Huerta forced Congress to end the guest worker “Bracero” program.  Corona founded and/or led numerous organizations, such as the Mexican American  Political Association, or MAPA, Centro de Action Social Autonoma, or CASA, and  La Hermandad Mexicana Nacional (the National Mexican Brotherhood), all  influential in the “immigrant rights” movement. The Communist Party still has  strong influence in MAPA, which acts as a king-maker for Democratic Party  candidates in the Los Angeles area.  Antonio Villaraigosa, former Los Angeles mayor and 2012 chairman of the  Democratic National Convention, got his start with CASA. He was also a former  member of the Communist Venceremos Brigades and worked with the Brigades in Cuba. Lorenzo Torrez, a long-time organizer of the Arizona Communist Party, paved the  way for Communist-backed Congressmen Ed Pastor and Raul Grijalva to win  congressional seats in Arizona. Loudon’s book identifies many influential communist and socialist politicians holding office today. For example, Rep. Judy Chu, D.-Calif., has “a thirty-year history with the now defunct pro-China Communist Workers Party (CWP) and its surviving networks.” Chu is an advocate  for “progressiveimmigration reform and was a co-sponsor of the Comprehensive  Immigration Reform bill introduced by Rep. Luis Gutierrez in 2010.  In 2012, Chu  served as co-chair of President Obama’s reelection campaign.

Excerpt continued.. Today’s Communist Party USA cites the current amnesty effort as its top legislative priority. Its official  position is virtually indistinguishable from that of the Democratic  Party:

As Congress begins to draft legislation, immigrant rights groups and the  labor movement including the AFL-CIO and its constituent organizations, SEIUChange to Win, and many faith-based groups are mobilizing for comprehensive  immigration reform with legalization, a path to citizenship and workers’ rights  …

This legislative and political battle is also at the top of the agenda of the  Communist Party USA and Young Communist League.  Their program includes stopping deportations now as legislation is being adopted, and calling for legalization  with a clear and speedy road map to citizenship for all 11 million. Future workers who come should have the same opportunity.

Eliseo Medina “is both the country’s most influential ‘immigration  reform’ activist and a Marxist. He is an Honorary Chair of Democratic Socialists  of America”.   Eliseo Medina learned voting strategies from Fred Ross, a Saul Alinsky-trained activist  and the brains behind Cesar Chavez. Eliseo Medina worked hand in hand with UNITE HERE President John Wilhelm, to change  AFL-CIO immigration policy at the 1999 Los Angeles Convention. Then, claiming  U.S. immigration policy is “broken and needs to be fixed,” the AFL-CIO on  February 16, 2000, called for a new amnesty for millions of undocumented workers  and the repeal of the 1986 law that criminalized hiring them … According to the SEIU website, Medina has played the leading role in uniting  Change to Win and AFL-CIO behind the immigration reform movement..

Medina (2009) We reform the immigration laws, it puts 12 million  people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters.”

GRAHAM, RUBIO, FLAKE, BENNET and SCHUMER

James Simpson lists the following Senators receiving benefits from this bill.  South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham – more visas for the meat  industry, a major employer in his state. Sen. Charles Schumer – special treatment for Irish workers; his state is home to a large population with Irish ancestry. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio – help for the cruise-ship industry, a big  business in his home state of Florida. And Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet of  Colorado – a boost for ski areas.

Mr. Rubio, from hurricane-prone Florida, inserted an opportunity for foreigners to come to the U.S. for 90 days to work on relief operations after state or federal disasters. Mr. Rubio also gave a nod to the recently embattled cruise industry with a provision allowing certain foreigners to repair cruise ships made abroad, as well as other transportation equipment. Florida drew $6.7 billion in direct spending from the cruise industry in 2011, according to the Cruise Lines International Association. Mr. Rubio and Sen. Jeff Flake who both advocated for the construction industry during negotiations, included a provision, which many in the construction industry had feared dead, allowing foreigners to work in such higher-skilled jobs as electricians, plumbers and welders.” (Sara Murray, “Pet Projects Sprinkled In Immigration Bill,” WSJ4/21/13) 

Rubio has denied it was done just for Florida, confirming: “There is a provision Rubio suggested to make it easier for foreign workers to come to the U.S. for 90 days in the case of natural disasters or other emergencies.”

House Speaker John Boehner, has enlisted former Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan to promote the House  plan. Ryan and  the Republicans are working with some far-left House Democrats, including  Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a  former member of the Marxist-Leninist Puerto Rican Socialist Party, and Xavier Becerra, both  members of the Congressional  Progressive Caucus and both longtime amnesty activists.

Representatives Steve King, R-Iowa; Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Dana Rohrabacher,  R-Calif.; Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.; Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.; and others – 70 House  members in all – as well as senators Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.;  Mike Lee, R-Utah and others have sought to highlight the dangers of this  legislation.

By the way, by the time this is passed, the actual number of amnestied illegals is going to be around 20 million, not 11 as cited.

The Corker-Hoeven Amendment and Fifteen Traitorous GOP Senators Who Deserve to be Rebuked!

In addition to Sarah Palin’s warning last night about the Corker-Hoeven Amendment, the United States Citizens and Immigrations Services President released a statement today regarding the 1200-page Substitute Immigration Bill. It is from the American Federation of Employees Council, an affiliate of the AFL/CIO, warning against the effects of this bill on hardworking union workers. Senator Jeff Sessions included this document in one of his posts today.

 “EVEN WORSE FOR PUBLIC SAFETY, NATIONAL SECURITY”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 24th, 2013gang of ocho

WASHINGTON-Kenneth Palinkas, President of the National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council, the union representing 12,000 United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) adjudications officers and staff, issued a statement today urging lawmakers to oppose the Corker-Hoeven substitute immigration bill, which was released Friday, before a weekend where members would be away and not able to  see or rear the bill before voting for it – something Ted Cruz pointed out tonight on Hannity. The statement reads:

The amended 1,200-page Corker-Hoeven immigration bill, if passed, will exacerbate USCIS concerns about threats to national security and public safety. It will further expose the USCIS agency as inept with an already proposed massive increase in case flow that the agency is ill prepared to handle. The bill does not address the needs of the USCIS workforce as it fails to fix the institutional problems in our agency, such as the need for newly hired permanent employees versus term employees to perform the work, and the lack of training and manpower and manageable time to adjudicate for its current staff.

The Corker-Hoeven substitute proposal, like the original proposal, will lead to the rubber stamping of millions of applications for both amnesty and future admissions. In its current draft, any worker in the country on a legal work visa for 10 years can get a green card, even if they overstay their visa.

It will allow immigrants to break the law in the future and still be eligible for citizenship, as it absolves prospective behavior, not simply past mistakes. It will do away with the applicability of certain grounds of inadmissibility as contained in the Immigration and Nationality Act. It will wipe away the enforcement process that compels law breakers who overstay their visas to return to their home country and restart the immigration process.

This bill rewards immigrants who break the law, more so than the prior bill proposed by the Gang of Eight. The proposal goes out of its way to provide legalization for criminal offenders while making it more difficult for Adjudications Officers to identify threats to the nations security in our ongoing war against terrorism. It was deliberately designed to undermine the integrity of our lawful Immigration system.

This bill should be opposed and reforms should be offered based on consultation with the USCIS adjudicators who actually have to implement it. Hopefully, lawmakers will read the bill before casting their votes. I say put a cork in it.

Here are the 15 GOP Senators who did not heed those warnings and who voted for a bill they probably did not read:

Alexander ~ Corker ~ Ayotte ~ Chiesa ~ Collins 

  Flake  ~ Graham ~ Hatch ~ Heller ~ Hoeven 

Kirk ~ McCain ~ Murkowski ~ Rubio ~ Wicker

sessionsSenator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) who has been on the right side of this issue from day one, said:

The Gang of Eight and their allies revealed their true tactics tonight. They shut down debate and blocked amendments to a 1,200-page immigration bill that no one has read. It was anything but the open and fair process that they had promised.”

He added: “The sponsors of the Corker-Hoeven substitute fell short of the votes they expected tonight to advance what they had erroneously billed to other Senators as a strong border security amendment. Failure to capture the votes they anticipated for this motion demonstrates the building unease this 1,200-page legislative… monstrosity has created.

I expect that unease will increase as Senators learn more about what’s really inside this proposal. What we know for absolute certain is that this bill guarantees three things: instantaneous amnesty, permanent lawlessness, and a massive expansion in legal immigration that will reduce wages for working Americans. This legislation is a crushing blow to the working people of this country, a surrender to illegality, and a capitulation to special interests over the interests of the citizens we pledged to represent.”

CORKER-HOEVEN SUBSTITUTE AMNESTY-FIRST IMMIGRATION BILL

  •  Immediate amnesty before enforcement
  • Guts legal requirement for biometric exit-entry system
  • Millions of green cards (permanent residency) before enforcement—debunking another false claim from sponsors
  • No border surge. Agents aren’t required until 2021. It will never happen
  •  No fence requirement. DHS retains discretion in the bill that preempts the call for a fence in ten years. Litigation also provides an escape hatch to never build the fence. The fence won’t happen
  • Legalization for gang members and convicted criminals
  • Amnesty for future visa overstays (in other words, a prospective amnesty for future illegal immigrants)
  • Guaranteed welfare access for illegal immigrants
  • Undermines interior enforcement, prompting ICE officers to warn: “There is no doubt that, if passed, public safety will be endangered and massive amounts of future illegal immigration—especially visa overstays—is ensured.”
  • Expands non-merit chain migrationless than 10 percent of future flow is merit-based
  • Doubles the number of guest workers and triples the number of immigrants granted lawful permanent residency—reducing wages for U.S. workers and driving up unemployment

**********

MY MESSAGE TO THE GOP:

 NO TO IMMIGRATION REFORM. NO to Amnesty!  Enforce the laws. Expose Corruption, Extortion and Infiltration.

LaRaza is bad for America and GOP.  Union Thugs are bad for America and GOP. Noquist  is for America and the GOP. 

Scrap the bill!

Go after OBAMA’s treason and scandals. That is your job!

 Sarah Palin dealt a huge blow to Senator Rubio whether he wants to admit or not. She made an example of him for betraying the voters, but she did so with perfect timing. She could have chosen any other day to mention his flip-flop, but did so on the eve of today’s important vote.  If Senator Sessions is accurate, and the Gang of Eight got less votes than expected, then it can only continue to show that Sarah yields influence and power in just one Facebook post, tweet or article.  I hope the momentum continues, and that we will see more spine and more resistance on the part of the Senators who need to say no to SWEETENERS behind closed doors.  It cannot be understated that we must continue to fight, and not give up. Just because this passed to the Senate floor, doesn’t mean it was done without some struggle. WE MUST NEVER RELENT!

~This is still a call to arms! Immigration Reform is tedious and overwhelming, but it needs our attention.  More posts will come, not because I enjoy doing this, but because IT MUST BE DONE.~

Here are the numbers again to the Senators you need to contact. (all in my previous post)  https://thespeechatimeforchoosing.wordpress.com/2013/06/23/a-call-from-sarah-palin-to-flood-your-representatives-phone-lines/call to calls
