HOUSE: Just say no to S744

Print Article

Once again the U.S. Senate has passed legislation harmful to American citizens and consistent with Obama’s desire to “fundamentally transform” America. The legislation, S744, overwhelms our country over the next decade with 57 million foreign nationals by giving amnesty to illegal immigrants, doubling legal immigration and handing out 27 million guest worker permits.

The U.S. House of Representatives could easily let this horrible bill die by not passing ANY immigration legislation. Any immigration bill passed by the House could be sent to a conference committee with S744 to be reconciled. Members, appointed by Pelosi, Boehner, and Senator Reid, would reject any conservative solutions. S744 or something just as wicked would pass out of conference back to the House and Senate.

Behind closed doors Republicans would give Boehner permission to bring the bill to the floor. They are being heavily lobbied and bribed by the same business groups who bought off Senate Republicans. Their goal is to permanently depress American worker’s wages for higher profits

The bill would pass by Democrats and a few Republicans. The majority of Republicans who did not vote for the bill will believe they are safe.

Raul Labrador is colluding with House leadership by pushing legislation forward for passage in the House. He must be stopped.

NO HOUSE IMMIGRATION LEGISLATION, RAUL! PERIOD!
