ANCHORAGE, Alaska, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NumbersUSA Action has launched an online ad blitz across the state of Alaska asking what Senators Mark Begich and Lisa Murkowski are getting in exchange for selling out on amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens. The ads launched today and will continue until the Senate votes on the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill S. 744 at the end of this week.
"Why in the world would Senators Begich and Murkowski be willing to give work permits to millions of illegal aliens, making it easier for them to take jobs, when so many Alaskans still can't find jobs?" asked Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA Action. "Is that really Senator Begich and Senator Murkowski's idea of immigration reform or have they traded something behind the scenes with special interests? The people of Alaska deserve to know before they vote."
The bill Senators Murkowski and Begich support will reward illegal aliens with amnesty work permits and legalization immediately and then promises more enforcement later, if the administration doesn't decide to waive the enforcement. That's the same promise made in the 1986 amnesty that has never been honored. In all, the legislation offers 33 million new, lifetime work permits to foreign citizens over the next decade, triple the level of the last decade. Approximately 11 million of the new work permits will go to illegal aliens and 22 million will go to new foreign job seekers. The proposal to bring in millions more foreign workers and reward illegal aliens with work permits comes at a time when 20 million Americans still can't find full time jobs, many here in Alaska.
