Audit the IRS Rally
Wednesday, June 19, 2013 from Noon to 2pm
West Lawn of US Capitol
PLEASE VISIT THE ILLINOIS TEA PARTY FACEBOOK PAGE FOR TRANSPORTATION COORDINATION ===>>
THERE ARE CARPOOLS OUT OF ILLINOIS & A FEW SEATS ON A BUS LEAVING FROM INDIANA
Illinois was not able to raise funds on such short notice to pay for a bus; however, we do have Illinoisans flying and driving to join other patriots “On the Hill” and will be represented. We will stand united and must contact our legislators! Please melt the phone lines! Ask Republican Congressmen Peter Roskam, Adam Kinzinger, Rodney Davis, Aaron Schock, John Shimkus and Randy Hultgren to stand with the “Gang of 70” and Represent Their Constituents!
Gang of 70 & Immigration
Democrats and establishment Republicans are pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. They plan to have it passed this summer. It will fulfill President Obama’s promise of fundamentally changing the United States. A gang of 70, very brave House members are willing to risk it all to STOP this immigration bill. Reps. Michele Bachmann (Minn.), Steve King (Iowa) and Louie Gohmert (Texas) are serving as spokespersons for the group. Michele Bachmann was on the Sean Hannity show and said that they will be hosting a “Press Conference” on the West Lawn of the capital before and after the Tea Party Patriots ‘Audit the IRS’ rally (10am to 4pm).
Links to articles on immigration legislation and the Gang of 70:
We know that when Reagan signed a law granting amnesty and securing the boarders, that illegal immigrants received amnesty, more illegal aliens flooding into the USA and the boarders remained porous. Why does anyone think that history will not repeat itself?
We know that laws securing the boarder already exist, but are not being enforced.
There is no urgency for immigration reform. Why pass any bill? We fear that even if the House passes a good bill, amnesty will be slipped in during reconciliation and they will use legislative tricks to get it to pass. Then the administration will support the portion they like – amnesty, and ignore anything they do not like – immigration enforcement. If immigration reform passes, we will have rewarded law breakers and the USA will no longer be a country ruled by the rule of law.
Please contact your Representative. Ask him/her to join the gang of 70. Tell them that we have their back.
Call Speaker Boehner, ask him to not call immigration to the floor!

SAMPLE LETTER: Enforce laws and secure the borders
Our nation desperately needs immigration reform, but Senate Bill 744 will not correct the issue. We need to streamline the immigration process so people who can contribute to society and not be a burden on the taxpayer can come here in an orderly, legal process. We need to increase quotas for migrant farm workers so farmers can have the necessary workers to pick their crops, but not the 50 percent increase SB 744 does.
Farmers also need to be responsible for health care costs of the migrant workers and their families. Taxpayers should not be burdened with these costs.
We are a nation of laws. Granting amnesty to those who have broken our immigration laws sets a bad precedent and discriminates against legal immigrants who follow our immigration laws. If we grant amnesty, this is a slap in the face to those who have followed our laws.
In 1986, we were promised that, if we supported amnesty for those in this country illegally, our borders would be secured. We trusted our elected officials to secure our borders and supported amnesty. Our government broke its promise; our borders still are not secured 27 years later.
Many of our elected officials, including Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, are not being honest with Americans about the immigration bill. There are many waivers in the bill that undo provisions in other sections. I have listed a small portion of these waivers below. For a complete list, please go to: http://bit.ly/13Kf9G0
SB 744 would:
* Grant amnesty to farm workers illegally in our country after only five years, and waive the 10-year waiting period.
* Void state and local E-Verify laws. The federal E-Verify would not be required for all employers until four years after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issues regulations implementing the mandatory program, which could take a few years.
* Require that DHS waive the public charge law that prohibits that agency from admitting illegal immigrants likely to receive public assistance.
* Provide that when an illegal immigrant applies for legal permanent resident status — at this point, qualifying for federal assistance programs — the applicant need only demonstrate income or resources equal to 125 percent of the federal poverty level.
* Allow DHS to waive multiple misdemeanor convictions when granting amnesty, so an illegal immigrant with three or more misdemeanors still may be eligible for legal status.
SB 744 also does not prohibit illegal immigrants from receiving public assistance from state or local governments. Our nation cannot afford to add this many new people to our assistance programs.
We need to enforce the immigration laws we have now and secure our borders before we pass new laws!
