Senate Resolution 1395
By: Senators Wiles of the 37th, Hill of the 32nd, Rogers of the 21st, Hudgens of the 47th, Seabaugh of the 28th and others
Urging the President and Congress of the United States to secure America’s borders and reject demands to repeat the failed 1986 legalization program for illegal aliens for the protection of American jobs and our homeland; and for other purposes.
WHEREAS, President Barack Obama declared in his January 27, 2010, State of the Union address that, “We should continue the work of fixing our broken immigration system – to secure our borders and enforce our laws, and ensure that everyone who plays by the rules can contribute to our economy and enrich our nation”; and
WHEREAS, the President further declared on February 5, 2010, “We can’t be satisfied when another 20,000 have joined their ranks and millions more Americans are underemployed, picking up what work they can”; and
WHEREAS, the United States has proudly accepted more legal immigration than any other nation in the world; and
WHEREAS, nearly 15 million Americans are currently without employment, and illegal immigration takes jobs from Americans and lawfully present immigrants and places a heavy burden on the State of Georgia to provide federally mandated benefits and services to illegal aliens; and
WHEREAS, states across the country face mounting difficulties in dealing with the rampant unemployment of citizens and lawful workers who have waited in line, played by the rules, and legally joined the American family; and
WHEREAS, legalizing illegal immigrants who escaped capture while crossing American borders is contrary to the basic principals of fairness and justice upon which this great country was founded; and
WHEREAS, federal legislation in 1986 which legalized approximately 3 million illegal aliens served only to reward illegal activity and to encourage further illegal immigration; and
WHEREAS, estimates of the number of illegal aliens currently present in the United States are between 11 million and 20 million; and
WHEREAS, estimates of the number of illegal aliens in Georgia are between 450,000 and 1 million; and
WHEREAS, the State of Georgia is unable to withstand the financial burden created by illegal immigration; and
WHEREAS, illegal immigration threatens the security and public safety of all Georgians; and
WHEREAS, illegal immigration negatively impacts all aspects of the State of Georgia, including the economy, social services, education services, the criminal justice system, and health care services; and
WHEREAS, Georgia’s budget cannot withstand the added burden of benefits for which presently illegal aliens would become eligible with the removal of illegal immigration status; and
WHEREAS, an illegal labor market, fraudulent documents, and uncontrolled borders undermine our national security; and
WHEREAS, enforcement of American immigration laws has proven to be the real solution to encouraging illegal aliens to migrate out of the United States and Georgia and to reduce further illegal immigration; and
WHEREAS, immigration reform must reflect and serve the interests and needs of the American people by addressing the national issues of homeland security and the economy; and
WHEREAS, any future immigration reform therefore must reject amnesty and be founded on the principals of enforcement and border security; and
WHEREAS, it is the right and duty of each state to defend and protect its citizens from the dangers and costs resulting from lack of border security and absence of strict immigration law enforcement by the federal government; and
WHEREAS, this body should enthusiastically encourage the adoption of laws which enforce federal immigration requirements.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE that the members of this body
urge the President and Congress of the United States to secure America’s borders and reject demands to repeat the failed 1986 legalization program for illegal aliens for the protection of American jobs and our homeland.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Senate is authorized and directed to transmit an appropriate copy of this resolution to each member of the Georgia congressional delegation and the President of the United States.

DUSTIN INMAN SOCIETY URGES AMERICANS TO AVOID ANY POSSIBLY PLANNED COUNTER PROTEST OR RALLY TO OPPOSE ANTI- IMMIGRATION LAW ENFORCEMENT MARCH AT THE GEORGIA STATE CAPITOL ON May 1 2010

Because of recent dangerous occurrences in Arizona, in the interest of public safety and to avoid potential personal attacks or injury, the Dustin Inman Society is urging pro-immigration law enforcement Americans to avoid organized assembly or counter rallies at the announced “march” against enforcement at the Georgia Capitol on Saturday, May 1st, 2010.
By organizing, transporting and encouraging illegal aliens, subversive, anti-enforcement advocates have announced the intent to defy American immigration laws and demand an end of enforcement of those laws.
Beginning at 10:00 AM Saturday, May 1, these open borders advocates have announced plans for a five-hour march from the Georgia Capitol to advance a cause of a cessation of enforcement, open borders and to repeat the legalization legislation of 1986 for individuals who have escaped capture at American borders, reports D.A. King, president of the Dustin Inman Society.
“Most Americans understand that preserving the rule of law and defined, defended borders can be accomplished by electing responsible state and federal elected officials and that there are times when law-abiding Americans must avoid the risk of violent attacks in their own country” King said.
“According to polls, the large majority of weary Americans support the recently passed law in Arizona making the crime of illegal immigration a state crime in Arizona” observed King. “In Arizona, a fringe minority comprised largely of illegal aliens and their community organizers have made it clear that opposition to their agenda will be met with ridiculous, transparent and vacant charges of “racial profiling” and violence King said.
D.A. King urges Americans to always remember their right to peaceably assemble to make their voices heard, but to attend the anti-enforcement rally in Atlanta at their own risk. “While Capitol Police and Atlanta Police have always worked hard to provide protection to all concerned at similar past rallies, the possibility of personal injury should not be ignored” according to King. “If you go, I recommend attending with a witness and to take video and still cameras to record what is sometimes left off of media reports” was King’s experienced advice.
The Dustin Inman Society will not be sponsoring or sanctioning any counter protest to the anti-enforcement rally staged by radical anarchist elements on Saturday morning. “Expect no intervention by or protection from federal authorities” was King’s warning to possible counter protesters. “This will not be an permanent or ongoing policy of the Dustin Inman Society” says King.
Mr. King plans on video taping the event at his own risk.
Named for one of the thousands of Americans who have paid the ultimate price for America’s unsecured borders and the resulting illegal immigration crisis, the Dustin Inman Society is a Georgia-based, non-partisan, multi-ethnic coalition of Americans opposed to illegal immigration and illegal employment.
“In 1986, we proved that a path to citizenship for illegal aliens, from any region, does not result in secure borders or put an end to illegal immigration… or employment” said D.A. King, president of the Dustin Inman Society.
Advancing the cause of the American worker, the Dustin Inman Society strongly supports the as yet untried concept of securing American borders – at any price – and the vigorous enforcement of employment laws as a solution to the decades-old illegal immigration crisis (Attrition through enforcement).

The Dustin Inman Society supports and endorses the Arizona law mirroring long-standing federal laws.

Sen. John Wiles Champions Illegal Immigration Legislation
ATLANTA (April 28, 2010) – State Senator John Wiles (R-Kennesaw) lead his colleagues in the Senate to pass Senate Resolution 1395 with a vote of 34-9. The legislation urges the United States Congress and President Barak Obama to secure America’s boarders and reject demands to repeat the failed 1986 legalization program for illegal aliens.
“I stand proudly with my fellow Senators who supported this crucial piece of legislation,” said Sen. Wiles. “As Georgia recovers from the economic collapse, we must continue to protect jobs and resources for legal residents of this state. It has become clear that our budget can no longer withstand the added burden of benefits for illegal immigrants.”
Illegal immigration negatively impacts all aspects of the State of Georgia, including the economy, social services, education services, the criminal justice system, and health care services. Current estimates of the number of illegal aliens in Georgia are between 450,000 and 1 million individuals.
The 1986 legalization program granted more than 3 million illegal aliens citizenship status in the United States. This act served only to reward illegal activity and to encourage further illegal immigration. The enforcement of American immigration laws have proven to be the real solution to encouraging illegal aliens to migrate out of the United States and Georgia while reducing further illegal immigration. Immigration reform must reflect and serve the interests and needs of the American people by addressing the national issues of homeland security and the economy.
This resolution authorizes the Secretary of the Senate to transmit a copy of this resolution to each member of the Georgia congressional delegation and the President of the United States.
Sen. John Wiles serves as Chairman of the Special Judiciary Committee. He represents the 37th Senate District which includes a portion of Cobb County. He may be reached by phone at 404.657.0406 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The most intense feeling in opposition to amnesty for illegals is often not the strongest. What I mean is the emotional driver’s among anti-amnesty activists is not always the emotional driver that will attract the widest level of support. For instance, I oppose illegal immigration because; it is a Law and Order issue, illegal immigrants rapidly change our culture for the worse, illegal immigrants threaten traditional American values, illegal immigration brings violence to my community. I am sure the readers can bring other valid reason to reject illegal immigration and amnesty as well.
However the strongest argument is the one you should always use. With 10% unemployment among all workers and twice that amount of unemployment among low skilled workers, the strongest issue should be obvious. Illegal immigration makes it harder for American Citizens to get jobs, reduces wages, and hurts workers both union and non-union.
We should remember the words of Bill Clinton, “It is the economy stupid.” If you can link, and it should be easy, the poverty and desperation of American workers to the tolerance of illegal immigration, a person should be able to increase there level of support over what they otherwise would get. The message should be very clear and blunt. You do not have a job because “You Congressman, State Representative, Sheriff refuses to take measures to enforce the law against illegal immigrants” who take jobs that as a citizen you should rightly have. That is a powerful message.
As to those officials who are doing the right thing, and there are many, you must bring to the public’s attention what you are doing. Silence will not work this year. Every government official, especially those on our side, must take a stand and tell what they intend to do to fight illegal immigration.

Angry, hateful, violent, extremist liberals
Imagine a group of angry demonstrators toting swastika-festooned protest signs calling politicians Nazis, shouting obscenities and racial remarks and throwing rocks and bottles at police officers sent to keep order. No, these are not Tea Partiers. They are the mob that turned out last week to protest Arizona’s new immigration-enforcement law. This group of liberal rowdies has been dubbed the Tequila Party…

Your Money… for Immigration Overhaul
April 28, 2010 – by: William La Jeunesse
Comprehensive immigration reform and “pathway to citizenship” are Washington-speak for legalizing the roughly 12 million illegal immigrants currently living in the United States. And at a time of high unemployment and mounting federal debt, one important component is the legislation’s impact on the federal budget.
According to studies from both the left and the right, an estimated 40 percent to 60 percent of illegal immigrants don’t have high school diplomas, compared to about 15 percent of American adults. Illegal immigrants typically work in low-wage careers, such as housework, food service, gardening and construction, earning roughly $15,000 to $30,000 a year.
In some cases, those wages would qualify them for social welfare programs like food stamps, Medicaid and refundable tax credits — programs that you don’t need to pay federal income tax to qualify for.

The latest immigration bill hasn’t been scored yet by the Congressional Budget Office, but many of the components are similar to those in the failed 2007 immigration bill, which would have cost an estimated $30 billion over five years, including $20 billion for enforcement measures. The CBO also said the 2007 bill would have added $15 billion to the federal deficit.
FoxNews.com’s latest taxpayer calculator estimates how much someone in your income range would have paid on average under the 2007 bill.
People earning under $15,000 would have paid an estimated $1.27 over five years. The same average for those making $30,000 to $50,000k would be $48. The bill would have cost Americans bringing home $100,000 to $200,000 an average of $365 over five years, or $73 a year.
Staffers and sources on Capitol Hill say that, like the 2007 bill, the latest legislation would require citizenship applicants to learn English and pay a fine, but it also may contain a “touch back” provision – in which people would go to their home countries to register but would be allowed to “wait in line” while working in the U.S. with visas.
The conservative Heritage Foundation says comprehensive immigration reform will cost U.S. taxpayers much more — about $90 billion a year, once low-skilled immigrants are fully legalized. The organization says these immigrants will receive an average of $3 to $4 in benefits for every $1 paid in taxes.
“If you are adding millions and millions of very poorly educated people into the welfare system, into Social Security and Medicare, you are going to have a huge expansion of government costs,” says Robert Rector, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
