OVER 261,000 PEOPLE HAVE SIGNED IT!

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AGAINST AN AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS AND IT WILL BE FAXED IMMEDIATELY TO ALL OF YOUR REPRESENTATIVES FOR FREE!

WHY SIGNING THIS PETITION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OTHERS!

The reason is that signing this petition puts a person into an email system at NumbersUSA that
will alert them every time one of their elected officials needs to hear something specific about
immigration. Nobody else but NumbersUSA runs a customized grassroots mobilization system likethis that constantly gathers information on Capitol Hill about your Members of Congress and then lets you know what they are doing, saying and thinking about immigration policy.

The New York Times and other mass media have repeatedly stated that NumbersUSA's mobilization network led the efforts that defeated the close-call amnesty efforts of 2007 and 2010. But the forces for open borders are far more powerful today. Please help by passing along this
Petition to everybody you know.

Keep hitting up your reps with your feelings on this issue. They represent us, not illegals, so remind them of that fact.

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away"

Sure it does Senator,it gives/sells away our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986
