Our US Senator Thom Tillis Partners With Coalition Associated with George Soros For More Foreign Workers To The USA

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Kathryn Brown of WRAL-TV in Raleigh did a story a few months ago on US Senator Thom Tillis, one of our two US Senators from North Carolina, who has been hosting a series of roundtable discussions with an organization called A Partnership For a New American Economy. This organization is basically an open borders coalition of businesses wanting cheap foreign labor and working towards comprehensive immigration reform (aka amnesty for illegal immigrants) and more and more legal immigrants and foreign worker visas.

A Partnership For a New American Economy partners with the org, Welcoming America, which is funded by Leftist George Soros. For this connection go to the below weblink: (listen to minute 2 through minute 4 on the video)

Our US Senator Thom Tillis Supports an Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

North Carolina US Senator Thom Tillis has said he supports a path to legal status for illegal immigrants. That is amnesty. We want to meet directly with Senator Tillis but he refuses to meet with NC LISTEN in person, even though he meets regularly with businesses who want more and more cheap foreign labor and near nothing done about illegal immigration.

Concerning illegal immigrants, Senator Tillis says “we can’t send them back, so you have to provide them a path to legal status” and in the next breath says that does not mean amnesty. Of course a path to legal status and being able to remain in the USA and have access to government social services and have a job is amnesty. By giving legal status to illegal immigrants, Senator Tillis is OK with illegals taking jobs that belong to citizens and with illegals using public benefit dollars that belong to our veterans and our own poor and elderly poor. Senator Thom Tillis should be mostly concerned with his own citizenry, but instead shows he is mostly concerned with big special interests.

Regards,

Our US Senator Thom Tillis Chooses Foreign Workers Over Fellow Unemployed Citizens

Dear Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Our US Senator Thom Tillis wrote a letter to DHS and actually held up a Trump Administration nomination as he pressed for an increase in H-2B non-agricultural work visas which hurts American workers. Senator Tillis succeeded and thousands of H-2B visas were added to the already 66,000 such visas already being issued this year, and as such, Senator Tillis chose foreign workers for American jobs over his own fellow unemployed citizens. A study by the Center for Immigration Studies recently reported there is no labor shortage for H-2B job occupations.

US Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue will act differently today and press for major reductions in legal immigration to give citizens a better chance to get jobs in the USA.

Regards,
Ron Woodard

An Honest Poll on What Citizens Really Want Concerning Immigration Enforcement and Numbers of Immigrants.

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Just below is a great article with poll results that tells the truth about what citizens really believe on immigration enforcement and reform.

Click on this link “Poll on what citizens really want concerning immigration enforcement and numbers of immigrants

In contrast almost weekly I hear nonsensical comments by the media, and there will be more last gasps, suggesting erroneously that citizens prefer a pathway to citizenship for illegals with the only two options being citizenship or mass “round-up” deportation……the aforementioned two choices are like asking a citizen if they want a broken arm or a broken leg. These “push polls” are done to manipulate and offer limited false choices in order to advance the narrative of the Left. CIS however conducted a national poll giving citizens the additional poll option of enforcing our immigration laws, punishing employers who knowingly hire illegals, and cutting welfare benefits to illegals, etc as a major means of significantly reducing illegal immigration. To little surprise this was the poll option chosen by a majority of citizens. Because citizens know that enforcement of our immigration laws will work if actually implemented.

President Trump’s 10 Point Plan On Immigration

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Below is President Donald Trump’s 10 Point Plan On Immigration To Put America First.

Taken from: www.donaldjtrump.com/policies/immigration in early 2017

1. Begin working on an impenetrable physical wall on the southern border, on day one. Mexico will pay for the wall.
2. End catch-and-release. Under a Trump administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country.
3. Move criminal aliens out day one, in joint operations with local, state, and federal law enforcement. We will terminate the Obama administration’s deadly, non-enforcement policies that allow thousands of criminal aliens to freely roam our streets.
4. End sanctuary cities.
5. Immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive amnesties. All immigration laws will be enforced – we will triple the number of ICE agents. Anyone who enters the U.S. illegally is subject to deportation. That is what it means to have laws and to have a country.
6. Suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening cannot occur, until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put into place.
7. Ensure that other countries take their people back when we order them deported.
8. Ensure that a biometric entry-exit visa tracking system is fully implemented at all land, air, and sea ports.
9. Turn off the jobs and benefits magnet. Many immigrants come to the U.S. illegally in search of jobs, even though federal law prohibits the employment of illegal immigrants.
10. Reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, keeping immigration levels within historic norms.
