Action needed FIRST STEP TO SAVE THE GEORGIA SECURITY AND IMMIGRATION COMPLIANCE ACT (GSICA) of 2006! HELP US PLEASE!!!!!
Dear fellow Americans,
As crazy as it sounds to say, in 2005, we started a grassroots effort here in Georgia to pass legislation that would require the state of Georgia and all of the local governments in it ( 159 counties, 535 cities) to comply with federal immigration and employment law. Radical stuff, I know.
Authored by a very brave Georgia state Senator, Chip Rogers, who is now the Senate Majority Leader, in 2006 Georgia governor Sonny Perdue signed into law the Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act (GSICA). Essentially, it mandates that the local governments in Georgia use federally provided data-bases ( E-Verify and SAVE) to be sure that taxpayer dollars do not go to hire illegal labor or to grant illegal aliens most “public benefits” – like welfare, public housing assistance or permission to open a business ( commercial licenses) here in Georgia.
Many of you helped us rally, write letters, make phone calls and plead with the Georgia legislature to pass this law that says we should obey the law.
Nearly three years later, there is nearly zero compliance by most of Georgia’s local governments who have granted their own sanctuary and a defacto amnesty for illegals here. Try ignoring the law as a citizen and see what happens.
I have written about it repeatedly, spoken to various groups explaining that fact and spent the last 2 years trying to convince the local elected officials to obey the law. So far…the big money is winnning, but we now have the attention of the lawmakers. Again.
I need help.
Pending Georgia legislation, HB 2, if approved by the Georgia House APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE on its way to becoming law, will impose financial penalties on non compliant local governments for ignoring the law. Most of us understand that illegal immigration is organized crime and all about the money. If it becomes law, HB 2 will force compliance and result in even more illegal aliens migrating out of Georgia. And more jobs and services for Americans.
I AM NOW PLEADING WITH YOU ALL TO SEND AN E-MAIL TO JUST SOME OF THE 70 MEMBERS (LISTED BELOW) OF THE GEORGIA HOUSE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE AND THE AUTHOR OF THE BILL LETTING THEM KNOW THAT WE ARE WATCHING AND WILL REMEMBER WHAT THEY DO IN THEIR COMMITTEE MEETING TUESDAY @ 2pm.
I have extracted some of the e-mail address’ from the House Website of members and link them below. The entire list of members of the committee is HERE.
Some of the members are under pressure from powerful lobbying groups for local government to alter the law to make it easier for illegals to obtain the jobs and benefits that only legal residents of Georgia should have and THEN pass a bill that says we should obey the law that says we should obey the law.
This is unacceptable.
For a variety of reasons, the language of your e-mail should be very close to what I have below. These Georgia elected officials must get the polite and respectful message many times before Tuesday at 1PM Eastern.
Please help us? It took me less than 10 minutes to paste and send the e-mails. If they decline to pass out this bill, it is likely that the well funded illegal alien lobby will do what they could not do in 2006: Effectively defeat GSICA by making it null and void. Most local governments in Georgia have made their agenda clear: Defy federal and state law, reward illegals who escape apprehension by brave Border Patrol Agents with business licenses and benefits to satisfy the local illegal employers and the crazies in the radical ethnic lobby.
Imagine the outrage if it were the laws that benefit illegals like education, health care and translation that were being ignored!
Your opposition here will be surprising to some of you: the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG), the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA), and MALDEF and GALEO and the ACLU…all on the same side against compliance for various reasons. ALL OF THESE GROUPS WILL HAVE LOBBYISTS AT THE COMMITTEE MEETING OPPOSING US. It is their busine$$!
This is going on all over the nation, not just here in Georgia.
Each one of your e-mails will make a difference…honest. Our newest DIS board member, Ms. Inger Eberhart, and I will be in committeee Tuesday to testify if they allow public comment. THANK YOU IF YOU CAN HELP US!!!!
Suggested language of your e-mail below. PLEASE – Just copy, paste and include your name – where you live is not the issue here as this will effect the entire nation.
“Dear Representative: I watch with great dismay as local governments ignore the Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act (GSICA) designed to save jobs, businesses and benefits for citizens of Georgia. I vote and my friends and family vote. I am also watching to see that HB 2 is passed out of committee and passed into law.
In these desperate economic times when our services are being cut back and Americans are increasingly unemployed, I note that we are now considering a law that says we should obey the law passed in 2006 …which says we should obey federal immigration law.
I respectfully insist that the madness stop here and now. Please vote “YES – DO PASS” on simple language in HB 2 to penalize local governments who have been laughing at you and the law for three years now. The GSICA law is in place – there is no need to revise it at this time, but it MUST be enforced!”
A citizen who has had more than enough of illegal immigration, illegal employment and local government violation of the rule of law which I must obey.
I know that I am asking a lot, but we are working very hard here and it gets very tiring to testify in committee against the same well funded creatures who will say and do anything to defend illegal aliens.Please send the e-mail to all of the below legislators. If you have time, please call their offices as well. Start now, they have voice mail and will get the message Monday AM.
If you get tired, remember that Border Patrol Agents are on duty and risking their lives right now! Remember that Billy and Kathy Inman will never see their only son –Dustin -again.
