An e-mail from Tancredo’s Team America PAC:
One of the biggest obstacles to stopping illegal immigration is silence. Ever since we shut down the Bush-McCain Amnesty in 2007, Republicans usually oppose amnesty and support border security if prompted, but they try to avoid the topic all together. Once in awhile, like when Obama sued, there will be a lot of huffing and puffing; but it is rarely talked about. Even on conservative outlets like Fox News and talk radio, immigration is ignored. Until our borders are secure, illegal aliens are back to our home country, and foreign workers stop displacing Americans; Immigration should be on the headline story everyday!
That’s why putting immigration back to the forefront in the news is one of my top priorities. Every week, I write a column for World Net Daily and I write periodically for other publications as well. Additionally, from Monday to Thursday, I host a talk radio show at KVOR Denver 740 AM that can be heard live online or as podcasts.
Georgia and Florida Advance Tough Immigration Legislation
We are making progress in a number of states. In Georgia, State Rep. Matt Ramsey’s Georgia includes both SB 1070 Style legislation and mandatory E-Verify. The bill passed the House last week, and went through the Senate Committee earlier this week.
To their south, the Florida Immigration Enforcement Act just passed through committee. This bill will require all employers to use E-Verify.
Both Florida and Georgia have newly elected secure-the-border conservatives as Governors, with Rick Scott and Nathan Deal respectively. Gov. Scott has already signed an executive order requiring E-Verify for government contractors. Team America supported both candidates in the 2010 elections, and they both pledged to support E-Veriy and SB 1070 style legislation. Team America is working with SB 1070 author Russell Pearce and patriotic state legislators across the country to keep up the momentum on the states.
Thanks for your support and I will keep you updated as things advance.
