Borderfire Report (the best blog you’re NOT reading; and so important he blog has been hacked three times this year alone!) has the story:
This Thursday, Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY), who chairs the Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Refugees, will hold a hearing on April 30 at 2:00 pm entitled “Comprehensive Immigration Reform in 2009, Can We Do It and How?”
I think Chuckie has already packed the Title of his committee with loaded, emotional terms.
Senator Schumer has packed the witness panel with individuals hopelessly biased in support of amnesty. While there is one witness, Kris Kobach, who is a friend of true immigration reformers, the remaining witnesses represent “a who’s who” of the open borders lobby and big business interests who want to import cheap labor. In addition to Mr. Kobach, the following individuals have also been named as potential witnesses at the hearing:
- Alan Greenspan, Former Chairman, Board of Governors, Federal Reserve System
- Eliseo Medina, Executive Vice President, Service Employees International Union
- Doris Meissner – senior fellow, Migration Policy Institute
The “Migration Policy” Institute? Apparently Chuckie doesn’t have a corner on the “loaded terms” market. Throw in the Unions, and it’s a party!!!
By calling your Senator today, you can make sure Congress hears from the American people and not just special interests. Your calls today, Wednesday, and Thursday are especially important because La Raza has organized a grassroots lobbying effort to coincide with the Senate Subcommittee hearing this week. This nationwide effort will include phone calls, and — according to our best information — will culminate with marches on May 1st to demand amnesty.
Ah . . . La Raza. See, NOW it’s a Party! And on May Day; the International Socialist Holiday celebrating Workers of the World.
Who says they’re not real communists?
True immigration reformers understand that granting amnesty to illegal aliens rewards law-breakers, imposes a huge cost burden on American taxpayers, and does nothing to solve the problem of illegal immigration. In fact, as we saw after 1986, it only encourages more illegal immigration.
The Senate needs to hear from you that the American people still oppose amnesty. In 2007, true immigration reformers defeated “comprehensive” amnesty with a firestorm of calls to Congress. FAIR is ready to lead the fight against the DREAM Act once again, but we need your help again! Please call your Representative and Senators and tell them you oppose any effort to pass any “comprehensive” amnesty bill.

Same Day, Same Old Party Line. Note to La Raza: Cesar Chavez not only did not support illegal immigration; he actively turned in illegals as a threat to American workers.
Call your Senators and Representatives. Call them now. Don’t let Chuckie Schumer have his little dog-and-pony show unopposed.
