Make Two Phone Calls To Stop Amnesty

If you thought amnesty for illegal aliens was dead for this year, think again.

On December 5, some 32 alleged Republicans sent a letter to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan demanding that Congress enact an amnesty for DACA recipients “before the end of the year.”

Tom Cotton DACAAt the top of the list of signers was the name of Rep. Scott Taylor (VA-2).

Congressman Taylor, you may recall, was the RINO who blamed the Republican Party of Virginia’s devastating loss in the November election on President Trump’s “divisive rhetoric,” instead of the issue-free campaign run by establishment Republican Ed Gillespie and the failure of the Virginia legislative campaign committees to have an effective incumbency program for their members.

Taylor is a classic RINO who talks a good game when he campaigns, but betrays his constituents as soon as he gets to Washington, and his amnesty letter is a classic example of the genre.

Taylor wrote:

Since DACA's inception, the federal government has approved approximately 795,000 initial DACA applications and 924,000 renewals. Since being approved for DACA status, an overwhelming majority of these individuals have enrolled in school, found employment, or have served in the military. Studies have shown that passing legislation to permanently protect these individuals would add hundreds of billions to our country's gross domestic product (GDP). That is why the business community, universities, and civic leaders alike support a permanent legislative solution.


Then again, this is the same Congressman Scott Taylor who claims to be, like Obama, a "global citizen," as he explained on the Global Citizen website; "Global citizenship means placing emphasis on membership of a global community, not just national identity, and acting accordingly." Representative Taylor apparently thinks he was elected to represent the interests of the people of the globe and he forgot he was elected to represent the US citizens of Virginia's second district.


Of course, what Rep. Taylor is not saying in his letter to Speaker Ryan is that the DACA program he is supporting was unconstitutionally imposed by former Democratic President Barack Obama, and that the “studies” he cites have been thoroughly discredited.

Only about 900 DACA recipients have joined the military according to an article in USA Today. This is less than one tenth of one percent of the eligible pool of DACA recipients.

The DACA enlistees are part of a Pentagon pilot project called Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest. The program waives certain citizenship requirements for green card holders, refugees and DACA recipients with skills that the military considers essential to the national interest.

However, Pentagon and national intelligence officials say the recruits could have connections to foreign intelligence services or become insider threats, according to an internal memo obtained by NPR. The officials also said it would be both expensive and time-consuming to investigate these recruits more carefully.

"Even with the MAVNI program, where it's supposed to meet some of the vital national interests, the program has been replete with problems to include foreign infiltration, so much so that the Department of Defense is seeking to suspend the program due to those concerns," said Rep. Steve Russell, R-Okla., a retired Army officer, during a recent hearing on the defense policy bill reported by NPR.

"And I can't really discuss some of that here in this setting, but there are some major issues when it comes to vetting," said Russell, who serves on the Armed Services Committee.

What’s more, DACA does not help the U.S. economy or American workers – quite the contrary.

As Bruce C. Perryman, Ph.D., explained in an article for FOX News, an alarming number of American workers without college degrees are struggling to find work. In the first quarter of 2017, nearly four in ten native-born 18 to 29-year olds without college degrees were either unemployed or not in the labor force. 

Illegal immigration exacerbates these young Americans' struggles by increasing the number of people competing for a limited supply of lower-skilled and entry-level jobs. Over the past 20 years, illegal aliens without high school degrees have inflated the low-skill U.S. workforce by approximately 22 percent observed Dr. Perryman.   

The excess of low-skilled workers means companies don't need to raise wages to fill positions. Native-born workers without a high school degree would earn nearly $800 more annually if there were no illegal immigration – that’s almost three weeks pay for a minimum wage worker.

The burdens of illegal immigration disproportionately fall on American minorities says Perryman. Harvard Kennedy School economics professor George Borjas' explains that "Because a disproportionate percentage of immigrants have few skills, it is low-skilled American workers, including many blacks and Hispanics, who have suffered most from this wage dip."

Put simply, our most economically vulnerable citizens have the most to lose if DACA recipients are allowed to become legal workers and citizens.

What’s more, as Senator Tom Cotton explained to the Washington Examiner, DACA is "going to create an entire new category of persons who are eligible for chain migration."

"The very first people that would be eligible," Cotton observed, "are the parents of the DACA recipients, which is to say the very people who broke the law by bringing their kids here."

"If we don't change underlying laws about chain migration, which account for almost two-thirds of all green cards this country gives out every year, then this could be the largest amnesty in the history of the United States," he cautioned.

We urge every CHQ reader to call two Congressmen – their own Representative and Virginia Congressman Scott Taylor (VA-2).

The Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044. Tell Congressman Scott Taylor and your Congressman you oppose amnesty for any class of illegal alien and that you will oppose any Member of Congress who votes for an amnesty bill.

Scott Taylor - stealth congressman

What is more despicable than an open borders globalist who hides behind his warrior credentials? If that
doesn't qualify as deceiving and defrauding the public, what does?


We have been under an illegal alien invasion for decades, on the one side the progressive democratic socialist party wants to legalize these illegal alien invaders to obtain future votes. On the other side we have the republicans who want to secure the cheap labor for the business community.
Neither of these groups have any concern for the American citizens of this country. They claim that we do not have enough educated Americans to fill many of the higher skilled jobs. If this is true which I do not believe it is this dose not say much for our education system from K-12 nor higher education. The question must be asked and answered just what kind of graduates are we turning out who cannot compete with foreign students.
They further claim that we do not have enough American citizens who will do other kinds of work which required manual labor. Let's separate the agriculture industry because I believe they already have a guest worker program set up for that if it need to be expanded so be it, but I do not believe we have 11+ million illegal aliens working in the fields.
Why would an American citizen who has brought up during a period of time when collecting government hand outs is no longer viewed negatively take jobs in such areas as Construction, meat packing, hospitality etc. when they are quite comfortable on the welfare plantation.
What we need to decide in this country is, are we a sovereign nation where citizenship has a meaning and a benefit or are we just an employment agency for the worlds cheapest labor.
The pro legalization group says that illegal aliens add to our economy, well I believe that the same benefit would be gained by replacing an illegal alien invader with an American citizen thereby removing them completely or partially form the welfare plantation.
No as to the DACA program illegally instituted by the fraudulent executive order by the criminal president obama.
The say do not punish the kids for being here they were brought in by their parents. Well, the minute these kids receive legalization we will be rewarding the parents. I say we should not reward these parents for committing a criminal act conspiracy to enter our country illegally.
And we should eliminate chain migration immediately, before we eve consider any form of legalization.
