US Senator Thom Tillis Tries to Mislead the Public on His Amnesty For Millions of Illegal Immigrants

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Our US Senator Thom Tillis is trying to put lipstick on a pig by misleading the public on his legislation to give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. The only thing Senator Tillis’s SUCCEED ACT succeeds in is screwing American citizens and giving amnesty and legal work permits to over 2.5 million illegal immigrants.

Senator Tillis should be focusing on making sure all jobs go to unemployed citizens instead of illegal immigrants, but sadly Senator Tillis is more concerned with a mass amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Senator Tillis says his bill includes some enforcement measures, but it does not. Tillis says his bill is not an amnesty because the illegals get citizenship later on……but they do get citizenship and work permits hence it is an amnesty. Senator Tillis’s legislation even allows the illegal immigrants later on to sponsor their parents for citizenship and put them near the front of the line, the one’s who brought them to the USA illegally in the first place in violation of our laws and this makes a complete mockery of our rule of law.

Our US Senator Thom Tillis Introduces Bill to Give Amnesty to Millions of Illegal Immigrants

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Our US Senator Thom Tillis could be focusing on making sure all jobs go to unemployed citizens instead of illegal immigrants, but NO……Senator Tillis’s priority is a mass amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants at the expense of his own citizens. I reported a month ago that Senator Tillis was working on an amnesty, but his new bill is even worse than anticipated.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION DOWN BELOW.

Earlier today, Sens. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and James Lankford (R-OK) unveiled a broad amnesty for MILLIONS of illegal aliens as a legislative “solution” for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Their bill, the SUCCEED Act, would cover three times as many illegal aliens as the DACA program and provide a path to citizenship. Also, the bill contains no immigration enforcement provisions. It is a clean amnesty – plain and simple.

Our US Senator Thom Tillis is Writing Legislation For an Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Apparently never missing an opportunity to look out for the interest of illegal immigrants instead of fellow citizens, our US Senator Thom Tillis of NC is writing legislation to give an amnesty to approximately 2.5 million DACA illegal immigrants, Obama’s unlawful deferred action for illegals. Most everyone believes a Federal District Court in Texas will soon strike down DACA, Obama’a unlawful action of temporary annesty if President Trump does not undo it, hence Senator Tillis is stepping in according to several media reports, to give an amnesty via federal legislation.

SEE BELOW ON HOW TO PHONE SENATOR TILLIS TO STOP HIS IRRESPONSIBLE ACTION.

For the DACA dependents of illegal immigrants, it is unfortunate their parents put them in such a difficult situation. But although it may be annoying, these DACA children as adults can go back to their native country for a post-secondary education and to work there legally. Every DACA person, some call themselves a “dreamer” to strike emotion, who takes a job in the USA will disenfranchise a citizen, one for one, who is unemployed. Every dreamer who goes to college in the USA will disenfranchise a citizen, as college is a selection process and there are more students who could do the course work than there are enrollment slots. DACA “dreamers” are a bad dream for citizens, if the dreamers are rewarded and allowed to stay in the USA and citizens suffer the consequences of lost jobs and lost college enrollment to dreamers.

Our US Senator Thom Tillis Needs a Civics Lesson

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

At a discussion on immigration at the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina said, “those on both the left and right need to come toward the center to achieve meaningful immigration reform”. By the way folks, this is how we got the large 1986 amnesty for illegal immigrants, mass legal immigration, and basically no enforcement of our immigration laws…….the right caved to the Left. We can’t trust the Left on immigration reform, and it is not the time to negotiate for an amnesty in order to have job site and interior enforcement of our immigration laws just as we are beginning to have enforcement of some of our immigration laws by President Donald Trump.

At the event Senator Tillis first denounced amnesty, then spent even more time pointing out how we can’t deport illegal immigrants. Of course if we deny jobs and ICE does job site visits and punishes businesses knowingly hiring illegals, non-emergency benefits to illegals are denied, and we use local and state law enforcement in a sensible manner, the illegals will self-deport. After all, we have not really tried real interior and job site enforcement of our immigration laws ever. But Senator Tillis and unscrupulous businesses apparently don’t want to give real enforcement a chance until after yet another massive illegal immigrant amnesty. Last time then-Congressman Chuck Schumer of New York (now US Senator and Senate Democrat Minority Leader) led the charge and convinced President Reagan to trust him and do an amnesty first and promises of enforcement of our immigration laws later……not this time. Does US Senator Tillis need a “civics lesson”?

A recent Elon University poll shows Senator Tillis has a 29% approval rating in North Carolina. Over $50 million was spent to elect Thom Tillis in his last US Senate election. The biggest donors in that election hid behind special non-profit political orgs, but we know they usually get what they want after the election. Is this why Senator Tillis is taking the side of cheap labor interests and special interests and ignoring the average worker in North Carolina? Is this why Senator Tillis refuses to meet directly with NC LISTEN, but meets almost weekly with organizations and industries wanting ever larger permanent mass immigration in addition to more and more foreign worker visas?

Our US Senator Thom Tillis Plots With Cheap Foreign Labor Advocates To Counter President Trump on Immigration

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Neil Munro is a journalist and previous winner of the Center for Immigration Studies’ Katz award for excellence in covering immigration. Neil earlier this year wrote about GOP Senators hoping to sneak an amnesty into President Trump’s immigration reforms. It goes like this, “the emerging strategy is to pair offers of concessions (by Congress) to Americans and Trump with demands for major giveaways to businesses, including a bigger supply of low-wage immigrant workers and welfare-funded consumers. The immigration pairing strategy is being pushed by the industry-backed Business Policy Council and US Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Their strategy collides with Trump’s emphasis on raising Americans’ wages via merit-based and less legal immigration”.

Senator Thom Tillis is pushing for giveaways such as more and more permanent immigration for cheap labor interests and an amnesty for illegal immigrants in order to have the US Senate vote for funding for real enforcement of our immigration laws. Senator Tillis suggested we allow more foreign work visas (on top of more permanent immigration) in order to get government funding to do work site enforcement of our immigration laws and E-Verify. In other words, Senator Tillis would urge the US Senate to require major increases of foreign workers in order to have the US Senate do what is right in the first place and help citizens get jobs. It appears cheap foreign labor advocates have a US Senator who does their bidding instead of paying attention to the needs of the vast majority of his own constituents…… It should be again noted that Senator Tillis refuses to meet in person with NC LISTEN to discuss immigration reform, yet he meets regularly with cheap foreign labor interests.

NC LISTEN and our partners will continue to take actions and press for real reform and enforcement of immigration that is in our state and national interests, especially as this applies to jobs for citizens and their children.
