Tea Party Movement to Rally Against ‘Amnesty’

The Tea Party movement is slowly starting to shift its focus to illegal immigration, an issue that’s beginning to see a lot of attention, with rallies during the next few days aimed at stopping amnesty. As New American Media reported in February, some Tea Partiers are quick to point out that immigration isn’t on the party’s platform. But the immigration issue is increasingly being picked up by individual activists in the group, and it’s becoming another aspect of the movement.

Tea Parties Against Amnesty announced in March that they would organize rallies across the country, April 15-17, to show their opposition to any proposed legislation for comprehensive immigration reform.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), an anti-illegal immigration group, today made an announcement to supporters defending the Tea Party against accusations of racism and applauding the upcoming rallies.

A massive amount of new support is rushing into our operations. We have never seen this many new people sign up in our five year history. We want to give a special welcome to all of the new folks who have joined our email alert lists and taken interest of our Tea Party Against Amnesty events April 15-17…

Some of our diverse ALIPAC supporters are not fans of the Tea Party movement, however, they understand that 90% of Tea Party supporters oppose illegal immigration and amnesty with us. Most understand that we need broad coalitions to stop amnesty and reverse illegal immigration.

Some, unfortunately, are buying into the massive negative propaganda assault on the Tea Party movement. All we will say about that right now is that the Tea Party folks are not violent and not racist. They are being attacked in the same way our Border Security Movement has been attacked. They are being attacked because the powers that favor elite rule in America want to stop and divert the political revolution that is growing in America today.

If anyone reading this has any doubts about the Tea Party movement, you should stop listening to CNN and MSNBC and actually go to one of these events and talk with the people there to understand the realities vs. the propaganda.

ALIPAC is proud to stand with other Americans who share our cause of border security and enforcement of our immigration laws, and we will stand up against those who want to assault free speech and freedom of assembly for Americans.

There are currently 52 protest events posted on AgainstAmnesty.com, with 9,482 protest supporters signed up. The rallies will include some well-known Tea Party and anti-immigration speakers, including former Rep. Tom Tancredo, the outspoken founder and co-chairman of border security, anti-immigration PAC Team America; J.D. Hayworth, John McCain’s Republican opponent for U.S. senate; Arizona’s controversial sheriff, Joe Arpaio; and ALIPAC President William Gheen.

The last time zealots 'massively rushed into' anti-immigration operations, it was to support the self-appointed border patrol groups. Didja see how that turned out?
Hint: the organizers ended up regretting the –um– 'call to arms' which was issued.

Anti-immigration reform rhetoric by the Tea Party will only benefit the Democrats because it will reaffirm the perception that the Republicans are anti-immigrant.
The Republicans would be wise to support comprehensive immigration reform in 2010 to mend fences with the fastest growing voting block, the Latinos.

It's not anti-immigration reform rhetoric, or anti-immigrant as you falsely suggest. It is anti-illegal alien immigration. Many Americans from both parties are against the tsunami of illegals flooding our country. The Republicans would be wise to support no amnesty, just as the American taxpayer want. The fastest growing voting block you fraudulently utter is an illegitimate one.
Americans are fed up. Don't you get it? Latinos are going to have to mend fences with the American citizens. Comprehensive immigration reform is just a code word for rewarding criminals. Enough is enough. Get out of our country!

Sorry to burst your bubble. Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and illegal immigrants are:

in the country legally;
have the means to sustain themselves economically;
not destined to be burdens on society;
of economic and social benefit to society;
of good character and have no criminal records; and
contributors to the general well-being of the nation.
The law also ensures that:

immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.
Who could disagree with such a law? It makes perfect sense. The Mexican constitution strictly defines the rights of citizens — and the denial of many fundamental rights to non-citizens, illegal and illegal. Under the constitution, the Ley General de Población, or
General Law on Population, spells out specifically the country's immigration policy.

It is an interesting law — and one that should cause us all to ask, Why is our great southern neighbor pushing us to water down our own immigration laws and policies, when its own immigration restrictions are the toughest on the continent? If a felony is a
crime punishable by more than one year in prison, then Mexican law makes it a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico .

If the United States adopted such statutes, Mexico no doubt would denounce it as a manifestation of American racism and bigotry.

We looked at the immigration provisions of the Mexican constitution. Now let's look at Mexico 's main immigration law.

Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:

Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.” (Article 32)
Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. (Article 34)
Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.” (Article 37)
The Secretary of Governance may “suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.” (Article 38)
Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:

Federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities upon request, i.e., to assist in the arrests of illegal immigrants. (Article 73)
A National Population Registry keeps track of “every single individual who comprises the population of the country,” and verifies each individual's identity. (Articles 85 and 86)
A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants (Article 87), and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number (Article 91).
Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, will be imprisoned:

Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)
Foreigners who sign government documents “with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses” are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)
Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:

Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished. (Article 117)
Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)
Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121). Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico — such as working with out a permit — can also be imprisoned.
Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. The General Law on Population says,

“A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.” (Article 123)
Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)
Foreigners who “attempt against national sovereignty or security” will be deported. (Article 126)
Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law:

A Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison. (Article 127)
Shipping and airline companies that bring undocumented foreigners into Mexico will be fined. (Article 132)
All of the above runs contrary to what Mexican leaders are demanding of the United States . The stark contrast between Mexico 's immigration practices versus its American
immigration preaching’s is telling. It gives a clear picture of the Mexican government's agenda: to have a one-way immigration relationship with the United States .

Let's call Mexico 's bluff on its unwarranted interference in U.S. immigration policy. Let's propose, just to make a point, that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) member nations standardize their immigration laws by using Mexico 's own law as a model.

Every 4 month, a population the size of Tallahassee, FL pours across our southern border. They are not undocumented. They are illegal aliens. Period. Americans have been conned to accept this infestation as normal. To dissent is considered racist, zenophobic, or nativist.

In 1997, pres Zedillio proclaimed “I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed? by it’s borders.” MALDEF founder Mario Obledo stated, “California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn’t like it should leave. Every constitutional office in California is going to be held by Hispanics in the next 20 years.” People who don’t like such demographic changes “should go back to Europe.” Mexico’s president Fox was unrelenting in his brazen demands on the US, starting with open borders even before he was elected. He called for the border to be a “joining line.” His visits to the US was filled with endless requirements for Mexican citizens illegally in this country – free healthcare, taxpayer subsidized in-state tuition for illegals at state colleges and universities, guest worker programs, and amnesty for all. It hasn't stopped.
Encouraged by their? leaders in both countries, the 30 to 40 million Mexicans illegal aliens in America are emboldened to insist that the US surrender to their demands, particularly amnesty, which will speed the acquisition of political power. And when California becomes majority Mexican (if uncontested) around 2028, these people call for political unification with their? cultural homeland. Their leaders are planning for such a scenario. It’s hard to fathom how America’s elected Congressional leaders, those who swore to uphold the Constitution and to protect the nation, are prepared to give it away for some perceived short-term political gain, if that. Sedition is the new black.
The front men for globalist corporations, and world government who occupy the White House allows Mexico to dictate America’s immigration policy, while few in the Democrat party object. Does anyone think Mexico cares about what happens to America? All one hs to do is look back to Sept 11, 2001, when Mexico was the only country who did not? offer condolences. They see the US as a dumping ground, and lands that they claim is theirs. Why do American public officials value so little what thousands have fought and died to protect? A foreign power has stated its plans to conquer this nation by demographic warfare, but in Washington, apparently no one cares.
How did these people get so deeply rooted in our politics? Why does the most? powerful nation in the world’s leaders cower before the third world country to the south? They’ve infiltrated our political machine, flooded our cities, and will? endlessly remain loyal to Mexico.

It’s time to get rid of the meddlers from Mexico, and their parasitic culture. We must stop the bleeding. All illegal aliens should be tossed out of this country before it's to late.

Fastest growing voting she said. Fastest grwing menace is the correct term…
