The name of the group is “Immigration Works” – Business end of the open borders lobby seeking fables of a “low-skilled worker shortage” to offer to Congress

Here is an email from the open borders lobby. This group is run by a woman named Tamar Jacoby

Dear friends,

Obama’s executive order has put immigration back on the table in Washington, but it hasn’t fixed the system so it works for employers.

The debate is largely negative now – a partisan fight about the president’s order – but there may be an opening to act in coming months. Many members of the 114th Congress are looking for small, constructive steps.

We need ammunition for the battle to come.

We need to convince lawmakers to provide relief for employers who rely on less-skilled immigrant workers.

ImmigrationWorks USA is compiling evidence about worker shortages across the sectors that rely on less-skilled immigrant workers: agriculture, food processing, restaurants, hotels, construction, healthcare and cleaning and maintenance, among others.

But we can’t do this without your input.

Please help us remind Congress about the broken immigration system and the consequences for business. Please tell us about your difficulties finding legal workers and what this means for your bottom line.

We’re looking for facts and figures, but also compelling anecdotes. See some examples below of the kinds of stories and statistics we’re looking for.

Please email your evidence to ecahill@immigrationworksusa.org or call (202) 480-2076. You can also fax it to (202) 595-8962.

And please don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have questions of any kind.

We can’t do this without you! Please help us make the case in Washington.

D.A. King in the Marietta Daily Journal -GOP hope and change: More foreign workers, and licenses for illegals

GOP hope and change: More foreign workers, and licenses for illegals

As the GOP kabuki theatre on stopping Obama’s illegal executive plays out in Washington, this writer is sorry to report that his prediction that some Republicans would move to expand the low-priced foreign workforce in 2015 is already coming true. They have had control of Congress for less than a month.

Republican Sens. Marco Rubio, Orrin Hatch and Jeff Flake have thrown in with three Senate Democrats to satisfy the addiction for cheap foreign labor in the tech industry, howling that it is “undeniable” that there is a shortage of tech workers.

This is complete, demonstrable and undeniable baloney — and the press is in on perpetuating the greedy fairy-tale.

‘Gang-Rubio” has orders to increase the H1B visa quota, which already displaces American Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)/tech workers and has depressed real wages for American workers. Rubio thinks Americans have already forgotten his 2013 amnesty effort.

To deal with the onslaught of shameless lies already being circulated by the tech industry about a “worker shortage,” we recommend that readers try noodling this one out for themselves. Using the natural laws of supply and demand, labor shortages produce higher demand and therefore higher wages.

One more time: Real wages in the tech industry are going down, not up.

Fear not: Georgia Sens. Johnny Isakson and David Perdue will no doubt soon assure us they will have no part of enlarging the foreign tech worker labor pool to satisfy the greed of the Mark Zuckerburg-led tech lobby.

Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled Georgia state legislature is back in session and the governor has announced the legislative agenda and goals. In a state with more illegal aliens than Arizona, don’t expect leadership to utter a peep about attacking the crime of illegal immigration.

For those who may not have seen the memo, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce has made another amnesty and expanding legal immigration its number one priority for 2015.

That — and the fact that the huge majority of Georgia media is pro-amnesty — is all one needs to know about state leadership’s silence on protecting American jobs and wages from the victims of borders who march in our streets.

But there are brave and determined pro-enforcement conservative legislators under the Gold Dome who are willing to work to protect Georgia’s jobs and benefits. One of these Republican patriots is state Sen. Josh McKoon, (R-Columbus). He chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee.

McKoon is the sponsor of Senate Bill 6, which, along with several other goals, is aimed directly at stopping the practice of issuing Georgia driver’s licenses to illegal aliens to whom Emperor Obama has promised “deferral” on deportation along with “jobs, jobs, jobs” through work permits and real Social security numbers.

“Georgia should not become another California because of the refusal of the Obama administration to faithfully execute its constitutional obligation to enforce our laws. I am certain the majority of Georgia voters would take a dim view of the General Assembly deferring to the president’s judgment on illegal executive amnesty and rewarding illegal aliens with a Georgia driver’s license and other public benefits,” says McKoon in a press release for his important bill.

It should be stated over and over again: Illegal aliens who have or may obtain “deferred action” status are still illegal aliens. They do not have legal status.

A note to my Republican friends who work so hard to elect GOP candidates but seldom get into the weeds of the governing process: As a marker on how far left the Republicans in the state legislature have drifted, try to imagine any candidate running as a “conservative” 10 years ago, when the GOP took over the majority in the Legislature, running on a promise to grant Georgia drivers licenses to illegal aliens — or creeping away and demurring on whether to help stop that California-like practice.

And please understand that an illegal alien has zero chance of obtaining a driver’s license in Mexico.

Last year a bill to stop rewarding illegals with a driver’s license was defeated in the super-majority GOP-controlled Georgia Senate, which also refused to allow voters a chance to decide on amending the state Constitution to make English the official state language of government.

The plan from here is to keep you informed on who’s who and doing what in these adventures in the coming months.

Stay tuned.

Georgia’s Senate Bill 6 – protecting Georgians from the crime of illegal immigration and Obama’s executive amnesty

Posted by D.A. King at 11:36 am - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

Ask yourself a question: WHO should get the jobs that the Governor has boasted of creating, illegal aliens, or Americans? If an illegal alien can get a drivers license in other states, but cannot in Georgia, he will leave. Because enforcement works.

SB 6 General outline The entire bill can be read HERE

Stopping illegal aliens from accessing a Ga drivers license – and more

* Refines and updates the definition of “legal alien status” for purposes of the Department of Driver Services (DDS) issuing a Georgia drivers license. Definition excludes any illegal alien who has been granted any deferred deportation status. Language establishes authority and directs for the DDS Commissioner to share information obtained for the purpose of issuing a drivers license with appropriate governmental authorities.

* Strikes the current language of state law that includes illegal aliens who are beneficiaries of any federal deferred action on deportation in eligibility for a drivers license. Requires aliens applying for a temporary drivers license or state ID card to submit fingerprints with application. Requires DDS to include fingerprint or alternate biological characteristic of temporary license holder on the license or ID card after January 1, 2016.

* Requires DDS to obtain an affidavit from alien applicants for drivers license swearing that applicant is not a recipient of any deferred deportation action grant from the federal government. False statements (felony here) may be punished by a fine of not more than $1,000.00 or by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than five years, or both.

* Increases penalties for driving without being properly licensed, reduces number of convictions of driving without being licensed for offender to be guilty of a felony.
With exclusions, including for expired drivers licenses and drivers 15 years old or younger, establishes authority of peace officer to have discretion to order that a vehicle driven by an unlicensed driver be impounded for 60 days.

* Requires the Commissioner of Driver services to participate in the federal E-Verify affiliated and little-known ‘RIDE’ program.

Illegal alien voting: – North Carolina state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status. According to a Winston-Salem Journal report, the State Board of Elections discovered the potential illegal voters when the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a search for DACA licenses. The 145 DACA recipients whose names appear on the SBOE’s voting rolls will be sent letters requesting documentation that they are citizens, the report noted.

The Journal notes that it is likely more ineligible people may still remain on the voting rolls.

FIELD TRIP! Communist and Black Panther Angela Davis to be keynote speaker at Kennesaw State University here in the Atlanta area on Sunday! Because Pol Pot is not available?

Update January 14: Now Accuracy in Media has taken note of the KSU adventure into revolutionary sympathies – and the AJC promo HERE

Update: Added January 13: According to the Marietta Daily Journal, KSU is paying anti-capitalist Angela Davis $20,000 of taxpayer funds for her MLK Day speaking gig. See HERE

Field Trip!


WHO: Communist-Black Panther Angela Davis
WHAT: “Tribute” to Dr. Martin Luther King
WHERE: Kennesaw State University, Kennesaw, Georgia
WHEN: Sunday, January 18, 2015 – 6:00 PM
Who is paying for the event?: Georgia taxpayers

OK, all you Atlanta-area, pro-American left-overs from the pre-Obama takeover of the Republic: FIELD TRIP ON SUNDAY!

A growing and multi-hued group of us are going to accept the invitation from Georgia’s third-largest university to attend their “tribute” to Dr. Martin Luther King on Sunday. They have invited Communist revolutionary and Black Power advocate Angela Davis as the keynote speaker.

Please see the (public-funded) white-washing-the-Red page on the event HERE

REPEAT: Angela Davis will deliver the keynote address Jan. 18 at Kennesaw State University’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance.

For a little history on Comrade Davis that KSU and the AJC left out, please see my MDJ blog HERE

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is promoting the event and says Davis is a “noted scholar” – so it must be worthwhile, right?

From the AJC: “The MLK observance, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Kennesaw State African-American Student Alliance. The tribute begins at 6 p.m. in the Dr. Bobbie Bailey and Family Performing Arts Center, 488 Prillaman Way.”

Be there or be square…

This is an actual comment from a Barry Loudermilk supporter on a Facebook post defending him for his promise-breaking vote for Boehner today . She lives in Dallas, Georgia. Her intellect scares me…

“The real vote took place back in November this was just a ceremonial vote. They knew there was no chance of beating The speaker so save your vote for the big ones you might can win.”

U. S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk Sworn Into the 114th Congress

Washington, D.C. (January 6, 2015) – Today, U.S. Representative Barry Loudermilk was sworn into office as a member of the 114th Congress by House Speaker John Boehner. Representative Loudermilk succeeds Congressman Phil Gingrey to represent Georgia’s 11th Congressional District, which includes all of Bartow and Cherokee counties and portions of Cobb and Fulton counties.

“While we will enjoy the ceremonies and traditions surrounding the beginning of this new Congress, it is important we not lose focus of the greater task at hand – getting this nation back on track. Although the challenges we face are significant, I still believe in American exceptionalism. With a long-term vision, a course of action and persistence, we can restore our country to one that is free, safe and full of opportunity,” said Rep. Barry Loudermilk.

For the upcoming legislative session, Rep. Loudermilk will serve as a member of two influential U.S. House Committees, including Homeland Security, and Space, Science and Technology.

Barry Loudermilk was first elected to public office in 2001, serving as the Chairman of the Bartow County Republican Party.

During his tenure in the Georgia State Legislature, Loudermilk championed a number of conservative issues from increasing public safety to limiting the size and scope of state government.

A native of Riverdale, Georgia, Rep. Loudermilk proudly served in the U.S Air Force from 1984 – 1992. A current resident of Cassville, GA, he is actively engaged in his community through his involvement in the American Legion, Civil Air Patrol and Firm Reliance – a non-profit dedicated to educating America on our founding principles.

In celebration of this historic event, more than 120 supporters from throughout the 11th Congressional District traveled to Washington D.C. to take part in the swearing-in festivities.

U. S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk Issues Statement on Speaker Vote

Washington, D.C. (January 6, 2015) | U.S. Rep Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) has released the following statement regarding today’s Speaker vote:

“This past November, Congressional Republicans were given the opportunity to nominate a candidate for Speaker of the House, yet no one stood up to present a viable alternative. When Republicans chose our nominee, I was one of three who voted for new leadership. However, nearly two months later, we still were not presented with another serious candidate.

“Moving forward, I strongly encourage Speaker Boehner to listen more closely to the voices of the conservative electorate who sent members like me to Congress. Unlike any other time in America history, we are facing an unprecedented era of government overreach and power and must remain focused on the issues at hand: reducing our national debt, protecting our homeland security and preserving liberty for future generations,” said Rep. Barry Loudermilk.

Today’s weekly email newsletter from Congressman Dr. Tom Price, GA6

January 05, 2015
The 114th Congress

This week marks the beginning of the 114th Congress and the beginning of a new Republican majority in both the House and Senate ready to draft, debate and advance positive solutions. Where possible, we are eager to find common ground with our colleagues on the other side of the aisle and the president. After all, every new Congress represents a fresh start – an opportunity to address the challenges we face as a nation and seek to represent the American people and our communities to the best of our ability.

No one expects that Congress and President Obama will find agreement on every little issue or every big challenge. But we ought to expect a good faith effort. Republicans have said we hope to move sooner rather than later on items that could or should receive bipartisan support and will help more Americans find jobs. These include approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline as well as the elimination of certain provisions within Obamacare that are standing in the way of more hiring and more work opportunities – particularly for our veterans. Again, these ought to receive relatively strong bipartisan support, and we hope the president will find a willingness to work with us on these sound policies and others.

In the House Budget Committee, where I will now serve as Chair, we will begin laying the ground work for our budget resolution. This is a process that will develop over the next few months as we look to craft a plan that is balanced and, as I’ve said before, speaks to the priorities of our diverse country, to our fiscal realities and our economic aspirations, to our national security concerns and the personal financial security of American families.

There is much work to be done. But, as always, there are many opportunities to build a stronger, more prosperous nation – one that supports and nurtures the hopes and dreams of the American people today and in the years to come.
