WASHINGTON, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is planning to defeat the 844 page immigration reform Amnesty bill (S.744) that was filed by the "Gang of Eight" in the U.S. Senate today.
ALIPAC activists and strategies played key roles in defeating similar legislation in 2006, 2007, and 2010 by harnessing activism from the majority of Americans opposed to the bills.
"We believe that this bill will hurt American workers, taxpayers, students, and voters by both destroying our future abilities to control our borders and by encouraging more illegal immigration into our suffering nation!" said William Gheen.
The key to defeating this new omnibus "Immigration Reform" amnesty bill that was crafted in secret without Congressional, media, or public oversight will be slowing the bill down enough to allow the public sufficient time to discern what is actually contained in the 844 page attempt to radically alter America.
"Those supporting this legislation know that a large majority of Americans will oppose it if they find out what is truly contained in the bill and that is why they want to rush it through Congress," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Most Americans would not even have time to print this bill on their home computers much less read or understand it before the Senate hearing this Friday!"
ALIPAC is America's 3rd largest national grass roots organization fighting against illegal immigration and any form of amnesty.
Today, ALIPAC will be asking the over 100,000 Americans in their network to call Congress to ask that the immigration bill be slowed down, to share the new polling data from Pulse Opinion Research showing 80% of Republicans and 72% of all Americans prefer enforcement instead of legalization for illegal immigrants, to oppose any path to citizenship for illegals, and to encourage others to sign a new online petition against Amnesty at www.AgainstAmnesty.com.
