Failure of amnesty scheme has invaders down, not leaving
Many Say They Will Remain — and Keep Working — in the United States Illegally

Although angered and alarmed by the Senate rejection of immigration reform, illegal immigrants in the Washington area said yesterday that they would risk staying here rather than return to impoverished countries with harsh conditions or low wages.

“This is a very big blow to all of us,” said Roberto Villaroel, 47, a day laborer from Bolivia and a leader of illegal immigrants in Northern Virginia. “The bill would have brought stability to our community and stopped the persecution of workers. It would have transformed the world of immigrants. Instead, we are left in a very bad and fearful place, and all because of politics.”

…”The Senate surrendered to the will of the vast majority of the American people, who wanted our laws enforced and our borders secured,” said D. A. King, an activist in Georgia who organized several rallies in Washington against the legislation. “The first sentence of the bill clearly made illegal aliens [criminals] legal…”

Jerry Gonzalez: Tone down the rhetoric?

Jerry Gonzalez from Denis O’hayer’s 11 Alive ( Atlanta NBC TV) blog: “I think we need to tone down the rhetoric; we need to have a very serious debate about it; and we need to move forward logically, with a rational, robust immigration policy.”

Ummm, Jerry, is your attack on senator Chip Rogers and example of your “toning down the rhetoric?”

Jerry kills me.

Jerry is a former MALDEF stooge.

The illegal alien/open borders lobby: WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP!

Marietta Daily Journal today
Senators make about-face on immigration

Marietta Daily Journal Staff Writer

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Moultrie) and Johnny Isakson (R-east Cobb) drew the hard line on immigration legislation Thursday by voting to kill the bill they co-authored that drew criticism from conservatives.

Earlier this month, Chambliss and Isakson sent a letter to President George W. Bush calling on him to consider an emergency supplemental bill of between $5 billion and $7 billion to bolster border security.

“Unfortunately, that suggestion was not listened to,” Chambliss said…

East Cobb immigration activist D.A. King said the Senate’s vote is “a big step forward for the rule of law and a big step for the voice of the American people in their own country.”

King said he knows the debate is not over yet and added the American people deserve “defended and defined borders.”

He said Bush “has no intention of ever doing so” and cited corporate interests as the driving force behind the White House’s unwavering position on no border security despite the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

“They want to create a free flow of people that free trade requires,” King said.

Isakson said the problem would not be solved within the short term and does not know why Bush hasn’t shown a greater commitment to secure the border.

We get mail

Posted by D.A. King at 6:45 am - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

Since about 5 minutes after the senate vote yesterday, we have recieved more than 1000 emails of thanks, “high-fives” and congratulations.
A sample:

Mr King,

“We The People,” won a big one today! I was beginning to think that the government was beyond the reach of democracy, but the “peasant revolt” has worked for now. I signed up for the Dustin Inman Society email while I lived in Suwannee, Georgia a year ago. Your work has been an inspiration to me. You have made a huge committement in GA and we see the results in the GA Legislature and today in the US Senate. Well Done!… “


I am humbled and grateful for the mail, but I know this: WE STOPPED AMNESTY BY WORKING TOGETHER.

The sad truth is that the illegal alien/ open borders lobby will never give up.

Be ready…and vigilant.

D.A. King

Jerry Gonzalez attacks Georgia state Senator Chip Rogers in the AJC…for noting that illegal aliens steal jobs from Americans

Jerry Gonzalez attacks Georgia state Senator Chip Rogers in the AJC…for noting that illegal aliens steal jobs from Americans.

Jerry seems very upset.

Jerry, full of anger and hate, should get some feedback from Americans of all descriptions for his mindless attack. You can be polite if you want to…I hope so, Jerry seems to be very sensitive, and considers all mail that is not for illegal immigration to be “hate mail”…Jerry cracks me up.

The AJC ran the below guest column from Jerry on Senator Rogers’ guest column ( “Federal bill would rob poor, benefit corporations “) from earlier this week here. Read it here.

The AJC should get some feedback too. Be polite. 150 words maximum, name address and phone to letters@ajc.com

Jerry also posted his mindless rant on his own Website before the AJC published or printed it. Read it here.

Try to feel sorry for Jerry…all that funding, in part from Jane Fonda…and keeps loosing his fight to open the borders and convince us that illegal aliens are “immigrants”.

Jerry Gonzalez is not taking the amnesty defeat very well…promises it will pass sooner or later

The below from GALEO and Jerry Gonzalez on yesterday’s amnesty defeat.

Due to the results of failed progress in the U.S. Senate today and the pending implementation of SB529 on July 1st, we wanted to send out this email early.

The following is a statement by Jerry Gonzalez, Executive Director of GALEO regarding the U.S. Senate’s failure to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform:

Today, our U.S. Senate failed once again to resolve differences and failed to produce a viable immigration reform policy for our nation. It is a major setback for a robust and effective comprehensive immigration reform solution.

That result is simply unacceptable. We must renew our efforts to call on our Congressional delegation to get the job done and to do it right. We urge the U.S. House of Representatives and the White House to renew efforts and take the challenge of crafting a better immigration policy that reflects our needs as a nation to truly secure the borders, enhance national security, continue economic development, reflects our nation’s family values and recognizes the important contribution that immigrants ( note from D.A.- he means illegal aliens) have made to our nation.

By voting not to move forward, our U.S. Senate has voted for continuing the status quo of continued illegal immigration.

The U.S. Senate voted against securing our borders.

The U.S. Senate voted to undermine national security by forcing the immigrant community to live in fear and continue underground.
The U.S. Senate voted to destablize our economy with the continued threat of workplace immigration raids, especially in Georgia.

The U.S. Senate voted for doing nothing and U.S. Senator John McCain has coined that as the “silent amnesty”.

The U.S. Senate voted to continue to tear families apart with selective immigration enforcement.

Right now, it is unclear what happens next. However, the efforts for comprehensive immigration reform will continue. Anti-immigrant forces on the right and talk radio have poisoned the debate to truly move towards real solutions for our nation.

Our nation needs leaders and statesmen that will rise to ensure the difficult challenges are appropriately addressed. Unfortunately, our politicians in Washington D.C. have fallen short again and have let us down with no viable solutions or alternatives.

America is at its best when we are united and move towards common goals and aspirations. The politicians of today are more interested in divisive politics based upon emotion and fear. America needs leaders that instill hope and establish a sense of greatness that is deserving of this nation.

We face a temprorary setback today on comprehensive immigration reform. However, our nation will rise up to meet the challenge with comprehensive, just, humane and moral immigration reform in the future. It is not a matter of if, but still a matter of when. America has overcome these divisive challenges in the past and we will continue our efforts to move our great nation forward.


GALEO has been a consistent voice of reason in Georgia during these challenging times. We urge you to join us as GALEO Members and help us continue to make our voice stronger. We can accomplish that with your GALEO Membership.

Your membership is critical to our continued efforts in Georgia.

Now is the time to renew your commitment to GALEO or to join the GALEO familia. Please join GALEO today and help us as we continue to shape the future of Georgia.

Thank you,

Jerry Gonzalez
Executive Director
Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO)
