EARTH DAY Hopes Drowned by Accelerating
Amnesty Flood Bill – Stop it!
The Illegal Alien Amnesty Flood Bill (H.R. 15) is moving again in Washington, D.C. and is Dangerously Close to Getting a Successful vote in the House, and moving to become law via a Melding with S.744, a Horrendous Bill that has already passed the Senate.
The House Bill (essentially a copy of S.744) would legalize Millions of Illegals and their Relatives, Triple Legal Immigration and add at least 30 million people to the U.S. population in the next Decade.
Earth Day Founder, Senator Gaylord Nelson (RIP) said that to protect the USA’s Environment, we must “Dramatically Cut Immigration and Stabilize Population … its phony to say I’m for the environment but not for limiting immigration …The Economy is the wholly owned subsidiary of the environment … If the environment collapses, so will the economy which depends on it.”
But the Threat of a MASSIVE INCREASE in LEGAL and ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION has rarely been greater.
191 Democrats in the House have already signed a Discharge Petition to force a vote on H.R. 15. Thirty Republicans are committed to the Amnesty or are leaning that way.
– Unfortunately also, the Republican leader, Speaker Boehner (“I’m hellbent on getting this done this year”) and Majority leader, Cantor, sponsor of the House copycat Bill to the Horrendous S. 744, are pushing hard behind the scenes to “get this done.”
– The latest ploy is an attempt to attach the House Amnesty Bill to the must-pass Defense Bill, so it would ultimately go to Conference with S. 744, and enactment into law.
Resistance should include telling Armed Services Chair Buck McKeon (R-Ca) and Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte (R-Va) that you do not want any Immigration legislation tied to National Defense.
Perhaps it is politically incorrect to mention that the presence of an increasing proportion of foreign-born in the US population, coupled with porous Borders, makes national defense harder, not easier. BALANCE is not anti-immigrant, just anti-mass-immigration.
And Resistance can also include telling the following Representatives who are leaning pro-Amnesty, you do not want them to sign the Discharge Petition or support any Illegal Alien Amnesty or legal immigration increase whatsoever. Connecting the dots, Representatives should be reminded of the Negative Impacts of immigration to our Taxpayers ($6.3 Trillion net costs per Heritage Foundation and www.CIS.org), to our Public Health and Employment goals, and to protection of the Natural Environment.
Do the drought-stricken areas of the West and Southwest, or the overcrowded Hospitals, Schools and Roads of Urban Areas all over the USA benefit in any way from the additional Environmental Pressure additional Millions of Immigrants would bring? NO!
House Members to call and write: Reps. Don Young (Alaska), Chris Stewart (Utah), Sean Duffy (Wis.), Spencer Bachus (Ala.), Jeff Denham (Calif.), David Valadao (Calif.), Greg Walden (Ore.), Paul Ryan (Wis.), Michael Grimm (N.Y.), Darrell Issa (Calif.), Mark Amodei (Nev.), Mike Coffman (Colo.), James Lankford (Okla.), Mike Kelly (Penn.), Mario Diaz-Balart (Fla.), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.), Devin Nunes (Calif.), Jason Chaffetz (Utah), Joe Heck (Nev.), Peter King (N.Y.), Raul Labrador (Idaho), Sam Johnson (Texas), John Carter (Texas), Daniel Webster (Fla.), Aaron Schock (Ill.), Steve Pearce (N.M.), Tim Griffin (Ark.), Justin Amash (Mich.), Vance McAllister (La.) and Renee Ellmers (N.C.).
We surmise that Leader Cantor and pro-Amnesty Reps Tillis and Ellmers are waiting until after the early May Primaries to publicly push Amnesty because they have anti-Amnesty Opponents (Brat, Brannon and Roche, respectively) in these Primaries. Speaker Boehner also has a Primary opponent.
Please ask friends and relatives to add their voices. Above all, the Increased Flood of Mass Immigration brought by this Bill would cause irreparable environmental harm. Remember that, for every person added to the U.S. population, one Acre of Farmland or Natural Habitat is converted to developed uses (Pimentel et al, Cornell).
And regarding the supposed “humanitarian” claims of the pro-Amnesty Advocates we ask: “What about the needs of the millions of unemployed, underemployed and overtaxed Americans?” Family reunification goals create a false choice: What stops illegal aliens from reunifying their families by returning to the country of Origin?”
And with the World's population increasing by 80 Million/year there will be ever-increasing demands for admission to the USA. But studies show that to the extent that the USA Allows Immigration from a Country, that drives up Fertility Rates in that Sending Country--exactly what the USA and Sending Countries do NOT need.
But there is another OMINOUS THREAT to the Environment. Since it began, President Obama and his Administration have unilaterally Issued at least 76 Immigration-related Executive Orders and Administrative Decrees relaxing Immigration requirements, halting Deportations, and increasing Immigration Numbers without the consent of Congress! (see Itemized list in our March Alert which was obtained from Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala). Senator Sessions' Study concluded that 99.92% of deportable Illegal Aliens and Visa Overstayers who had not committed a serious crime have been allowed to stay in the USA!)
The latest virtual Amnesty by Executive Action is the 'Parole in Place' Policy issued this March which legalizes and gives Taxpayer-funded Military Benefits—including presumably Obamacare and Work Permits to Illegal Alien Spouses, Children, and Parents of American Military Personnel!!
Perhaps most outrageous, the Obama Administration released 68,000 convicted criminal Aliens back into American Society in 2013, rather than deporting them! (“Releaser-in-Chief: 68,000 convicted criminal aliens released in one year,” cis.org, 03/31/2014).
"Since taking Office, President Obama has increasingly pushed the boundaries on Executive Power beyond their Constitutional Limits" stated Rep. Bob Goodlatte,(R-Va) Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. And now it appears that "Obama (is) Extending Unconstitutional Administrative Amnesty to Former Deportees and...Terrorists"! Federale, vDare.com 3/27/14.
Consider the Impact of Ruling by Decree on the Environment! The Precedent thus set would allow a future President hostile to Environmental Protection to unilaterally modify or Negate Important Environmental laws and Regulations, without the consent of Congress or American Citizens!!
Fortunately, there are now Bills in the House which would stop such Unconstitutional Unilateral Actions.
Rep. Diane Black's (R-TN) Immigration Compliance Enforcement Act (H.R. 3732) would prohibit the use of Federal Funds for such Actions; and the "ENFORCE the law Act of 2014" (H.R. 4138) (Gowdy-R. N.C.) would reign in Executive Overreach as well.
So Ask your Representatives and those who wish to go to Congress to make the following PLEDGE:
1) Vote NO on ANY Discharge Petition and/or immigration Bill which could go to conference with, or includes any provisions of , the Senate Bill
2) Vote NO on ANY Amnesty or Work Permits for Illegal Aliens
3) Vote NO on any Bill increasing Legal Immigration, whether via H1(b) increases, or otherwise.
4) Support the aforementioned Bills requiring the Executive to enforce the law.
5) Vote NO on any Bill - even the Defense Authorization Bill -- that folds the provision of Amnesty into its language.
6) Agree to push a zero-net Moratorium Bill in the next Congressional Session (but NOT in this Session, because any such Bill would risk coming out of Conference Committee looking like the Horrendous Senate Bill).
Only our Massive Grassroots Effort can stop them!
