Congressional Committee to discuss "ethical imperative" to pass amnesty

I received this from Roy Beck of NumbersUSA.com via email. Very important

--------------------------------------

FRIENDS, A KEY CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE WILL HAVE HEARING WEDNESDAY ON THE 'ETHICAL IMPERATIVE' TO PASS AN AMNESTY.

PLEASE PHONE MEMBERS TO GIVE THEM YOUR ETHICAL IMPERATIVE.


25 million Americans who want a full-time job cannot find one.

But the leaders of the House immigration subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee is bringing in some big name preachers Wednesday to talk about the ethical need to give permanent work permits to 7-8 million illegal alien workers while refusing to open up the jobs for millions of unemployed Americans.

These congressional leaders' misuse of religion to justify their greedy desire for cheap new labor and cheap new voters cries out for an immediate response.

ACTION: 202-224-3121

IF YOU SEE THIS BEFORE 7 P.M. EASTERN TIME, PLEASE PICK UP A PHONE AND START CALLING NOW.

THROUGH THE EVENING CALL AND LEAVE A MESSAGE ON VOICE MAIL.

THEN, START CALLING AGAIN FIRST THING ON TUESDAY MORNING.


It is so important that these callous Members of Congress know how repulsive their anti-U.S.-worker actions are to the electorate.

Please read my blog about this and get some tips for your phone call.

All of your comments on the phone should be about "ethical obligations."

The ethical obligation of Congress is to stop giving 75,000 new permanent work permits to foreign workers each month and to stop allowing 7-8 million illegal aliens to keep jobs that unemployed Americans want and need.

WHAT TO SAY TO DEMOCRATS

The Democratic Leadership is putting on this sad show. Let all the Democrats on the committee know that this callousness toward jobless Americans is really going to hurt them in this fall's elections.

But mainly talk about their moral obligation to the jobless citizens of their District.

WHAT TO SAY TO REPUBLICANS

The Republican Members are likely to oppose amnesty at this hearing but they will be uncomfortable to have religious leaders telling them that they are immoral.

A few of these Republicans have been champions of U.S. workers lately.

But most Republicans have done almost nothing during the Jobs Depression to loudly advocate for immigration reductions.

Thank the Republicans for holding the line against amnesty but also push them to be more forceful and public in advocating for major immigration reductions. And remind them that opposition to amnesty is truly what most churchgoers regard as the moral position to take.

Here are the Members of the Immigration Subcommittee. You can reach them through the Capitol Switchboard:
