It’s clear where Power Line stands on the House GOP leadership’s plan to push for amnesty for illegal immigrants, among other benefits. Earlier today, John and Scott expressed their dismay, and I have expressed mine.
But the GOP’s rush to sell out the party’s base, not to mention American workers, in order to service the interests of business won’t be halted by advocacy. Activism is required.
My sources on the Hill tell me that the best, and perhaps only, way to stop the amnesty express is through an outpouring of phone calls to one’s Republican congressman. It worked in 2007, and might well work again this year.
So if you are fortunate enough to be represented by a House Republican and you share our opposition to the House leadership’s “immigration principles,” please let your representative know. Call his or her office, ask to speak to him or her, and make your opposition known in no uncertain terms.
And while you’re at it, call Speaker Boehner’s office too.
