ALIPAC Endorses Scott DesJarlais for Supporting Current Immigration Laws Instead of Amnesty
WASHINGTON, Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- America's largest political action committee seeks to endorse candidates who support our nation's existing border and immigration laws instead of any form of Amnesty for illegal aliens. ALIPAC is pleased to announce the endorsement of Congressman Scott Desjarlais (R-TN-4) because of his courageous comments to illegal alien supporters, which were caught on video at a town hall style meeting last week.
In the video that has gone viral on the web (view here), Scott DesJarlais explains to an 11 year old girl who asks what she can do to keep her illegal alien father in the United States."This is a big intimidating crowd and I appreciate you coming forward and asking your question, but the answer still kind of remains the same, that we have laws, and we need to follow these laws and you know, that's where we're at."
Illegal alien supporters moved quickly to criticize Scott DesJarlais for supporting America's current laws and upholding penalties of deportation for illegal immigrants.
ALIPAC moved quickly to defend Scott Desjarlais and to criticize the contrived actions of illegal immigration & Amnesty supporters taking place at town hall meetings across America.
"First and foremost it is inappropriate for foreign nationals to become illegal aliens in America and then in turn try to influence our elected officials to accommodate them with Amnesty legislation and benefits," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Second, it is despicable that the Amnesty supporters are using children as political pawns to push their unpopular agenda. In America, we don't use and abuse children like this to try to mislead Americans into allowing an Amnesty to pass."
ALIPAC opposes any form of Amnesty or path to citizenship for illegal aliens because such a law would devastate any hopes for future border and immigration law enforcement in American, thus leaving the United States without borders and with none of the enforcement credibility needed to deter or thwart future waves of tens of millions of additional illegal aliens from third world areas.
ALIPAC was founded on 9/11 of 2004 in honor of the victims of 9-11 who were killed because of inadequate immigration security measures and enforcement of existing immigration laws. ALIPAC's goal has always been to unite Americans of all races, parties, and walks of life behind candidates who support America's current borders, immigration laws, and the US Constitution instead of any nation destroying form of Amnesty for illegal immigrants.
ALIPAC is known nationwide because of its regular appearances in the national media, and currently endorses 151 federal candidates with the addition of Scott Desjarlais at http://www.alipac.us/campaign/.
ALIPAC's more than 40,000 national supporters and more than 130,000 social media supporters are encouraged to vote, donate, and volunteer for the endorsed candidates. For more information or to schedule interviews with William Gheen, please visit www.alipac.us.
