This just in from ALIPAC — Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee:
We need everyone’s help today. The Obama administration is postponing the implementation of the E-Verify system because it would cost illegal aliens their jobs before the liberals have a chance to pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform AMNESTY that would render the E-Verify program moot!
Please pay special attention to today’s action alert and move on this.
Use the contact information list below for the US Senate and Congress to contact your Senators and Member of Congress by phone. Tell them:
“I want the E-Verify System deployed immediately to prevent illegal aliens from taking jobs from Americans and legal immigrants and I oppose Comprehensive Immigration Reform AMNESTY. America needs Comprehensive Immigration ENFORCEMENT instead!”

Obama went to Chicago on his own (or was sent there).
What happened in Chicago and the emergence of Obama the politician has been detailed, first at Rezko Watch and the replaced after Rezko’s conviction by The Real Barack Obama.
I urge all Americans to go there and read it all. There will be no doubt left in your mind of what happened and what will happen if Obama is elected.
Obama’s associates were not accidental. The only question in my mind is whether Obama was using them or whether THEY WERE USING HIM!

What is going on here? Is Bush getting even with America for the failure of his immigration bill? The announcement that the National Guard troops guarding our southern border will be cut in half is given without explanation.
National Guard To Withdraw Half Of Its Forces Assisting U.S. Border Patrol
by Matthew Borghese
Washington, D.C. (AHN) – The National Guard will slash the number of troops stationed along the U.S.-Mexico border in half, according to a new deployment order.
The Pentagon will cut the number of soldiers assisting the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency from 6,000 to 3,000, following a surge put in place by President George Bush last year to help combat illegal immigration and the drug trade.
President Bush initiated “Operation Jump Start” which put a mostly volunteer force along the 2,000-mile-long border with Mexico. The troops helped take care of administrative duties, freeing up Border Protection agents to keep vigil and make arrests.
National Guard Bureau spokesman Army Maj. David Kolarik said that the deployment “was never meant to be a permanent solution.”….

I took a deep breath last night, Thursday, June 7, 2007.
After 4 days of non-stop phone calls to Senators and many â€œWE WONâ€ emails from immigration groups, it was tempting to sit back and gloat. After a nightâ€™s sleep reality set in and my common sense tells me that those who have â€œtemporarilyâ€ lost the immigration battle will not stop.
- Latino â€œPRO-AMNESTYâ€ groups,
- the Chamber of Commerce,
- big business interests and
- our SELL-OUT-THE-AMERICAN-PEOPLE POLITICIANS — at all levels of government
will not let this go. So those of us who have fought so hard against this particularly nasty piece of legislation must look to more hard work and more ways to make ourselves heard.
A push for BORDER ENFORCEMENT AND EMPLOYER ACCOUNTABILITY must start immediately.
It would be a shame if the concerted efforts of Americans who joined together to fight S.1348 stopped here. WE MUST MOVE TO THE NEXT STEPS TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY.
We have this from Roy Beck of NumbersUSA:
The Senate amnesty bill got only 45 of the needed 60 votes that would have broken the filibuster and allowed a final vote for passage. Because of the 45-50 vote, the bill may be dead for the year….
VICTORY IS SWEET, FRIENDS!
And it may be sweetest when you know that you were an important part of the cause….
…many Senators in their speeches mentioned the overwhelming unpopularity of S. 1348 as their offices were flooded with phone calls and faxes….
Nearly every opponent of amnesty on the Hill has assumed that after a hard-fought fight, the Senate would pass an amnesty again this year and then we would hope to stop it in the House of Representatives. Stopping it in the Senate has to be seen as something of a political miracle….
…tens of thousands of phone calls the last two weeks have created a firestorm that the majority of Senators simply didn’t want to face.

ON THE GROUND FACTS ON IMMIGRATION BILL S.1348
FACT 1: The whole underlying intent of this bill is to blow smoke in the face of “legal” Americans. What else have we got from George Bush in the past 4 years?
FACT 2: A clear message to Senators McCain and Kennedy is the fact that legal Americans are now “COMING OUT OF THE SHADOWS” and they are sending a message loud and clear
by joining groups to fight this AMNESTY GIVEAWAY TO ILLEGALS.
FACT 3: This is a special message from me to John McCain regarding his very recent statement that illegals tend our gardens, babysit our children, etc. WAKE UP SENATOR MCCAIN! ORDINARY HARD-WORKING AMERICANS DO ALL THAT FOR THEMSELVES. WHAT EXALTED CIRCLES ARE YOU TRAVELING IN?

A SENIOR GETS A REALITY CHECK IN JUST ONE WEEK
Last Sunday morning, Motherâ€™s Day, 2007, I went to Walmart for the last time.
I went on Sunday morning to avoid the crowds thinking I would be able to get in and out in a hurry on my once-a-month stock-up shopping trip because I knew exactly where everything is. As a widow on Social Security it is important to me to shop where I can get the best prices.
I walked into the Walmart in Cordova, Tennessee and everything was rearranged. I didnâ€™t know where to look. I thought, oh well, they are just â€œmerchandisingâ€ but I soon learned that the items I had been buying for years were no longer in stock, replaced by â€œlatino products,â€ even in the soup section.
I walked all over that store amazed at what had happened in the past month and everywhere I went I heard Spanish NOT ENGLISH coming from other shoppers.
During the past 6 days I, a widow age 73 on Social Security, have also received 2 offers from Bank of America. They want to lend me $50,000.
There are still a few laughs left in this country but I believe the last laugh will be had by Americaâ€™s middle class, AWAKE AT LAST!

Nancy Pelosi, Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives, and Harry Reid, Democratic majority leader in the Senate, will pass an ‘amnesty’ for illegal aliens.
The two have a vested interest in passing such a bill. Mrs. Pelosi is the owner of a vinyard(which does not use union labor), a chain of restaurants and other businesses in California. Her counterpart in the Senate, Mr. Reid, represents the state of Nevada which needs cheap labor to profitably operate casinos and restaurants at Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe.
THESE PEOPLE HAVE A PERSONAL INTEREST IN PROMOTING AMNESTY!
A boycott of Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and wineries that use Mrs. Pelosiâ€™s grapes, as well as her other business interests in California, would send these two â€œservants of the peopleâ€ a message. Instead of Vegas or Tahoe why not visit your nearby National Forest? It may be one of the last opportunities Americans will have to enjoy what we thought belonged to all â€œlegalâ€ Americans.
The following is excerpted from an article appearing in Time Magazine and reported with CNN on Sunday June 27, 2003:
A comprehensive look at Meth labs and Marijuana farms in Arkansas, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Washington State.
These activities are occuring in our national forests.
Armed combat is hardly what families hope to encounter as they head for their summer vacations in Americaâ€™s national parks and forests. But drug smugglers, methamphetamine cooks and cannabis cultivators are invading federal lands as never before. A U.S. Park Service ranger in Arizonaâ€™s Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument was gunned down by a Mexican pot smuggler last August. In Missouriâ€™s Mark Twain National Forest, 192 meth labs have been dismantled over the past three years. And marijuana farms are infesting Kentuckyâ€™s Daniel Boone National Forest and Alabamaâ€™s Talladega National Forest.
In June 2001, nine members of the Magana clan pleaded guilty in federal court to narcotics charges and were given prison sentences ranging from four to 12 years. The Maganas have been tied to 20 large gardens with more than 100,000 plants in the Sequoia, Sierra, Stanislaus and Mendocino national forests. They also supplied workers for pot farms on federal land in Arkansas, Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Washington. According to investigators, the Maganas and other groups have used profits from methamphetamine operations to expand into marijuana.
They own gas stations, haciendas and million-dollar resorts in Puerto Vallarta, Guadalajara, MichoacÃ¡n and other parts of Mexico. â€œThey have tremendous networks involving legal businesses, money laundering and distribution,â€ says Jerry Moore, the Forest Serviceâ€™s regional law-enforcement chief. â€œWe arrest people, but new players move in.â€
Squirming in his handcuffs, the white-bearded Villa GarcÃa looks more like a kindly grandfather than a drug trafficker. He says he has been in the U.S. poquito â€” only a short time. A stranger came to his village in the Mexican state of MichoacÃ¡n and brought him across the border, along with four others.
One of them was with him on the Tahoe farm but managed to escape. â€œI did not know what kind of work it would be,â€ he says in Spanish, adding that he was paid $200 a month. Villa GarcÃa was arraigned on narcotics-cultivation charges, pleaded not guilty, and is in prison awaiting trial. His is a story federal agents know well after arresting scores of low-level gardeners, all undocumented, most hailing from MichoacÃ¡n. â€œThey donâ€™t know much, and theyâ€™re told, â€˜You talk, you gonna die,â€™â€ says Mark, who has questioned 60 such workers in the past year. â€œThe odds of us finding the organizers are slim.â€
Beyond the safety issue, the ecological damage from large-scale farms in parks and forests could take years to repair. Tree cutting and terraced slopes are causing massive erosion. In addition, the pot farmers leave a mess. At the Tahoe grow, 20 rangers and sheriffâ€™s deputies dug up the cannabis and stuffed it into paper bags as evidence. But propane tanks, coils of irrigation hose and food cans were left behind. â€œWe donâ€™t have the manpower to get the garbage out,â€ says Mark as she rips open plastic bags and tosses tortillas into the bushes….

Our elected officials are ignoring the demands of millions of hard-working taxpayers. In response, citizens are organizing for effective political action and setting up channels of communication to facilitate networking. One such opportunity is provided by OperationAmerica.com.
We have created and launched OperationAmerica.com because like you we have been frustrated by the ongoing illegal alien invasion that is now sweeping across the country.
It is totally FREE to become a member and have your own MySpace type profile page. We want to provide you with the most effective means of networking & organizing with others to help stop the illegal invasion of our country.
Like you, we have been frustrated by the lack of response from our so-called political leaders in both the Republican and Democrat parties.
Millions of hard working, tax paying, law abiding Americans are fed up with this invasion and lackluster, politically motivated response from our political leaders. And yet despite the outrage that the American people of this great nation have expressed, our government continues to ignore our calls to stop this invasion immediately, gain real control of the borders, and reject any legislation proposing amnesty for over 20 million illegal aliens now living in this country in direct violation or our laws.
One of the key problems that OperationAmerica.com has recognized by speaking with people all over the nation like you is the lack of ability to be able to effectively network and organize with others like ourselves who feel the same way about illegal immigration. OperationAmerica.com is a central meeting place where we can organize, network and communicate freely with one another so that we may unify and become a more powerful force. Together, we can be much more effective at putting a halt to this wanton invasion by illegal aliens, terrorist (and anyone else who wants to simply walk across our wide open borders) of our cities, and states, that has now reached a truly frightening level of intensity.
So if you are tired of seeing your neighborhoods and cities deteriorate before your very eyes with graffiti, a rise in crime, and unprecedented traffic gridlock, we urge you to join us now.
If you are tired of knowing that between five and 10,000 illegal aliens are swarming across this country’s southern border every night of the week (no one knows who they are) we urge you to join us now!
If you are tired of seeing billboards in your cities that you can’t even read because they are not in English or at the very least bilingual, we urge you to join us now!
If you are tired of seeing American jobs being lost due to employers hiring illegal aliens who are willing to work for next to nothing undercutting the traditional workforce of hard-working taxpaying American citizens, we urge you to join us now!
OperationAmerica.com is on a mission, providing a central location where we can gather, city by city and state by state. You will be able to organize and form groups within your own cities, share information with one another, and become proactive in your communities speaking as a unified voice on this and other extremely important issues.
At OperationAmerica.com we envision people coming together to network and communicate with one another in every city of every state of this nation with the same goals in mind. To stop illegal immigration, and regain control of our borders, schools, jobs, cities and states nationwide.
The networking opportunity provided by OperationAmerica.com has already fostered one planned event:
MARCH FOR AMERICA NATIONAL RALLY June 14, 15 and 16th 2007
Outside our Nation and State capitals, American Citizens of all age, race, religion and occupations will be standing shoulder to shoulder under the waving banners of Old Glory.
United as brothers and sisters of the American Constitution they will participate in the first ever March for America National Rally of the American people to return the United States of America to the American Citizens once again.
In mass record numbers Patriots from throughout our great land will join together in unity to let their voices be heard on the following issues affecting their great nation and homeland:
Illegal aliens, amnesty, drug and weapon cartels, terrorist illegal aliens entering our borders illegally, TTC/SPP/NAU, outsourcing, Aztlan/La Reconquista/El Norte, broken borders and corrupted government.
The American people seek answers and actions, no longer will our desires be a guess work by elected officials, on this day America will make known exactly where she stands. With firm footing upon the Constitution, and a firm hand on the Bill of Rights.
Therefore several key speakers will be addressing the public, as well as local and national entertainers who hold great pride in this nation are/will unite with the people raising their voices for the cause.
Visit the OperationAmerica.com website.
Visit the Let Freedom Ring America website.
During the last five centuries the United States of America Government has been less and less willing to secure and protect its Nations borders. Their failure of border security can have no greater physical evidence, unquestionable proof and a lasting and painful symbolic reminder, then the events that occurred on 9-11. Yet, still our Government fails or perhaps downright refuses to secure our Nations borders to both the North and the South. This leaves the American citizens with two unchanging and unanswered questions which echo in chilling unison from coast to coast. “Why?” and “What can we do about it?”

I received this email from Bill Frist on December 4, 2006. I was obviously on his list because of the many emails I sent him asking him to take a stand against illegal immigration in Tennessee. He ignored my emails and those of the many other Tennesseans until it was too late to matter for him. I am also enclosing my answer to his email. His email to me:
Dec. 4, 2006
Thank you for contacting me. After twelve years of proudly representing Tennessee in the United States Senate, I will be retiring from the Senate and returning home at the end of the year. I am proud of the progress, growth and change our country has experienced during this time.
One of the great difficulties of preparing to leave office is recognizing the limited time that is left to address matters of concern to Tennesseans. Therefore, it is with deep regret that I write to inform you that I will not be able to respond directly to your correspondence in the short time remaining.
It has been an honor to represent you in the United States Senate, and I am eternally grateful to the people of Tennessee for entrusting me with the privilege to serve.
William H. Frist, M.D.
United States Senate
My answer to Mr. Frist who is very proud to be an M. D. (His state has moved up and is now ranked 47th healthiest state in US.)
“Congratulations on your 12 years representing Tennessee and here is what you are coming back to.”
Illegal immigrants meet little resistance getting home loans
By Daniel Connolly from Memphis Commercial Appeal
November 12, 2006
Marleny Carranza’s cell phone plays salsa music when a call comes in, and these days it rings often.
She and her sister Sandra Carranza are doing a brisk business selling homes to Hispanic immigrants, and they don’t turn away people who may be in the country illegally.
The Carranza sisters work with Su Casa Realty, a Century 21 franchise with an office in Hickory Hill. They are among many real estate professionals and bankers nationwide willing to sell houses to illegal immigrants.
Giving home loans to illegal immigrants is a relatively safe bet because they usually earn steady incomes and because the federal government isn’t trying hard to make them leave, some businesses executives say….
About 18 months ago, the community bank started a mortgage program for people without Social Security numbers….
The sisters sometimes work with Bank of Bartlett, which accepts identification cards issued by foreign governments. The bank helps immigrants who lack Social Security cards obtain an individual tax identification number through the Internal Revenue Service, which doesn’t share the information with immigration enforcement officers….”
No one is above the law. Congress should immediately demand the Department of Justice uphold the law and begin prosecuting all management level individuals in the FDIC, bank CEOs, vice presidents and managers for violation of federal immigration law and the Bank Secrecy Act of 1972. And, no fines. Banks have lots of money. It’s time these people who knowingly break federal laws get jail time just like anyone else. Congress should also move immediately to get the lists of all illegals who have opened bank accounts or loans with these banks, turn them over to the government and begin deporting these criminals.
And, just to put this in persepective, here are some individual cases of legitimate Tennesseans who have been slaughtered by illegals, from data compiled by Tennesseans for Responsible Immigration Reform:
Tennesseans Murdered by Illegal Aliens (Sadly, this is an incomplete list. We will be adding more news stories as we are able to track them down):
10/21/06 Driver in fatal wreck is an illegal immigrant
10/20/06 6 Car Wreck with 2 dead caused by drunk driving illegal alien in Nashville
09/14/06 Greenville woman killed by illegal alien who fled the scene of the ‘accident’
08/28/06 Jackson teen killed by drunk driving illegal alien
08/30/06 Grand jury to hear Bellevue murder case
08/30/06 $40 Check one clue to murder
08/22/06 Grandmother murdered in Bellevue
08/07/06 Grandmother killed in Chattanooga by unlicensed, un-insured Illegal Aliens who fled the scene
08/02/06 Mandolin maker murdered by drunk driving illegal alien
06/08/06 Mt. Juliet couple murdered by drunk driving illegal alien (read more here)
05/13/06 Mother & daughter in Nashville brutally stabbed by an illegal alien
10/07/05 Would-be terrorist arrested in Nashville (thankfully, no one was killed)
04/10/05 Man slain by illegal alien living in closet
01/07/04 Pregnant woman murdered by illegal aliens
The Republicans who represented Tennessee in Congress during the last term did nothing to solve the problem of illegals. The citizens of Tennessee are organizing to do it themselves. Two such groups are:
Tennesseans for Responsible Immigration Policies (website)
Tennesseans for Responsible Immigration Policies is a not-for-profit, non-partisan coalition of American citizens who are concerned for the economic and environmental future of all citizens.
We oppose efforts to use federal immigration policies to force mass U.S. population growth and to depress wages of vulnerable workers. We are pro-worker, pro-liberty and pro-immigrant although we staunchly oppose illegal immigration. Members of TnRIP are Americans of all races and include many immigrants as well as spouses, children and parents of immigrants who came to this Country through legal avenues.
