Immigration Enforcement

After 4 Senate Victories, How Do We Protect Them From Backroom Death?

What a week!

And, yes, the results were just as wonderful and just as scary as you might hope and fear.

Most of you are shocked by the Senate’s passage of 4 strong immigration enforcement amendments that would open up hundreds of thousands of jobs to unemployed Americans over the next year alone. Maybe even millions of jobs!

The Sessions E-Verify amendmentThe DeMint fence amendmentThe Vitter no-match amendment. The Grassley E-Verify amendment.

Rightfully, many of you are skeptical.  You are asking us: Did the Senate Democratic Leadership — that has opposed everything that favors unemployed Americans over illegal aliens — suddenly “allow” us to win as a kind of trap? What’s the trick?

First,  you really do need to take a minute to celebrate (just a little). Your pressure has caused the Democratic leadership to retreat a bit. The fact that congressional leaders believe that they have to concede some victories to us shows that your efforts are having some effect.

But, based on our information from inside Congress, we should expect that Senate Majority Leader Reid, House Speaker Pelosi and Pres. Obama have every intention of killing these amendments in a backroom maneuver when the joint Conference Committee negotiates the final bill to be sent to the President. (See below.)

NEXT 2 WEEKS OUR BEST CHANCE FOR IMPROVEMENT THIS YEAR

Friends, we spend most of our time trying to get good legislation just looked at somewhere.

We are in a totally different — and better — position at this moment. What we have now is amazingly good legislation already passed by the U.S. Senate — by easy margins! The good stuff is on the table. It’s on its way to law. It is ours to lose right now.  We haven’t been in a better position than this in a very long time.  Instead of fighting for our lives to stop something really bad, we have something very good to protect and preserve.

Our Action Buffet team already has several important faxes for you to send from your corkboard to protect the 4 Amendments.  But we will come back to you Monday with another task, and perhaps a number of others during the week.  One of our Capitol Hill Team told me late last night that there is no reason to save energy for any other time — NOW is the time to mobilize everything we have.

As you fight, remember that you aren’t fighting just for yourself or your family but for 15 million Americans and their families who currently are desperately searching for a job but can’t find one.

If you win in keeping these enforcement amendments in the DHS bill, hundreds of thousands of jobless families will once again have income, benefits and the hope of not having their houses foreclosed.  Is that enough incentive?

We are highly unlikely to get a better chance to make a huge humanitarian difference the rest of the year.
