CITIZENS OF NEW YORK & NEW JERSEY DENOUNCE COMPREHENSIVE AMNESTY BILL CALL ON CONGRESS TO REMEMBER THE LESSONS OF THE FAILED 1986 AMNESTY
NEW YORK, NY – The citizens of New York and New Jersey join in a coalition of citizen lobbyist and border control organizations on this day in calling on Congress to solve the illegal immigration crisis that has plagued the U.S. for decades. We were promised Americas borders would be secured in 1986 when 2.5 million illegal aliens were given amnesty. S.744 does not secure our borders, and if passed by Congress, S. 744 would have disastrous consequences for American workers and taxpayers. According to an April 2013 Pulse Opinion Research poll, only 26% of Americans agree with giving work permits before full border and workplace enforcement.
S.744 would add 33 million foreign job seekers in the next decade alone. That would be like re- creating ALL of the Top 20 cities in the United States, filling them entirely with foreign citizens and giving them lifetime work permits to compete with America’s struggling workers — and in just 10 years time. That is 33 million foreign job seekers granted legal status competing against 33 million unemployed American citizens for jobs and/or entitlements!
According to an April, 2013 Pulse Opinion Research poll, 70% of Americans disagree that America is faced with a labor shortage. There are no jobs Americans won’t do, just wages Americans won’t accept. The American wage is being decimated by the hiring of illegal aliens.
The Heritage Foundation released the results of its exhaustive study of the costs of giving amnesty to 11 million illegal aliens – $6.3 trillion net costs over the lifetimes of the amnesty recipients. Senators supporting S. 744 talk only about the costs in the first 10 years when the bill forbids use of most welfare and entitlements.
The coalition wants immigration CONTROL and ENFORCEMENT. We want:
AMERICAN BORDER SECURITY NOW! Enforcement of existing immigration laws.
Mandatory use of E-verify by employers, with heavy penalties for non-compliance.
Reasonable annual legal immigration levels.
An end to birthright citizenship for children born to parents who are not citizens or Legal Permanent Residents
Deportation of illegal aliens NOW
The Coalition is working to educate members of Congress and the public about the adverse consequences of our ill-advised national immigration policies and to advocate real, common sense solutions that adjust our policies to the needs of the citizenry.
