Senate Creating a New Underclass, Ignoring Border Security

Tell the Senate Judiciary Committee to Oppose Guest Worker Amnesty!

As a war rages between U.S. Border Patrol and smugglers of both humans and drugs along our southern border, the Senate Judiciary Committee is focused on creating a permanent underclass of citizens, rather than getting control of our border!

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Arlen Specter (R-PA), has introduced legislation that ignores border security and, instead, creates a guest worker amnesty program. His bill sets no limits on the number of "guest workers" or the number of American jobs they can take. Unlike the Sensenbrenner bill, which passed the House, the Specter bill does not include a border fence.

Specter's committee will be marking up the bill for the next two weeks before voting to send it to the floor of the Senate.

What's Going on at the Border?
  • 42,000 criminal illegal aliens have been caught at the southern border in the past five months

  • 139,000 of the 1.1 million people apprehended along the southern border in 2005 were criminal aliens seeking to illegally re-enter the United States.

  • 39 tunnels have been discovered under the southern border, often used for drug and human smuggling.

"Violence on border at record high," Washington Times, 3/02/06

The increase in violence on the border cannot be ignored! Instead of pandering to big business's cry for cheap labor, the Senate should focus on keeping America safe by securing our borders!

Absolutely NO form of guest worker programs should be accepted!
