Midwest Activists Converge on Boehner's District to Oppose Illegal Alien Amnesty
Thousands to Attend "Rally for America" in West Chester, Ohio, Saturday September 7
CINCINNATI, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released by FAIR:
Several thousand immigration reform activists from across the Midwest are expected to turn out for a rally in Speaker John Boehner's home district to send a clear message to Congress as they return to work: No amnesty for illegal aliens, and no massive increase in immigration to compete with struggling American workers!
The Rally for America is being organized by Ohio Citizens for Sensible Immigration, Grassroots Rally Team of Ohio, Southwest Ohio Patriots and others.
"We want to make sure that the voice of the American people is the last thing Speaker Boehner hears before he heads back to Washington," said Julie Aldrich, president of Ohio Citizens for Sensible Immigration. "We know the Speaker has heard from the Wall Street interests. We know he has been hearing from the illegal aliens."
"On Saturday, he and the House leadership will be hearing from ordinary American citizens who want our immigration laws enforced and decades of broken promises to the American people kept. We have 20 million unemployed in this country, and millions more struggling to make ends meet. The message we plan to deliver to the Speaker is that it's time for Congress to start protecting the interests of American citizens, instead of rewarding illegal aliens and giving business interests access to still more foreign labor," Aldrich said.
