Evangelical Group Ads Paid for by National Immigration Forum
“The Evangelical Immigration Table, a coalition supporting immigration reform, has launched a six-figure ad campaign pushing Congress to enact immigration legislation. The ads, urging evangelicals to “pray” for a path to citizenship, include the disclaimer that they were “paid for” by the Table. This is odd, because the group doesn’t legally exist. It is a highly misleading claim,” Breitbart News reports.
“Breitbart News confirmed on Monday that the actual purchase of the ads was made by the National Immigration Forum (NIF). The Table told Breitbart News on Friday that it wasn’t an incorporated entity or non-profit organization and had selected NIF to “facilitate” its work. A source at a media buying firm in DC told Breitbart News that NIF did not take the traditional commission on the ad purchase, which was described as “very odd.” It suggests NIF was making its own purchase of the ads, rather than simply acting as a “facilitator” of the buy.”
Laura Ingraham Confronts Rubio Over Amnesty
“During a segment on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined conservative radio host Laura Ingraham to discuss the scandals surrounding the IRS and the Department of Justice. The conversation quickly turned to Rubio’s efforts to reform the immigration system where Ingraham and Rubio found themselves on opposing sides of that issue. Ingraham implored the junior senator from Florida to drop immigration reform, stop “dividing the Republican Party,” and focus on Americans’ true priorities,” Mediaite.com reports.
Rep. Barletta – Amnesty Isn’t The Solution
“Clearly what we are facing is an immigration system that is badly in need of an overhaul. What proponents of amnesty suggest is that illegal aliens will not be eligible for social benefits. That promise would require increased diligence from a system that has proven to be ineffective with its current tasks. To heap more responsibilities on top of an already over-taxed system defies logic,” says Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA).
“As tragic as the Boston situation was, it also served as instruction into what is wrong with our system. Asylum rules are obviously lax, as are those involving tracking visas. One must wonder why immigrants would seek political asylum from their native countries, only to return to the same region for months at a time. This obvious warning signal was entirely missed — or ignored — in the case of the Boston suspects.”
Black Leaders Plan March to Protest Amnesty
“Scheduled for June 15, the DC March for Jobs is both an attempt to highlight the unemployment plight of the black community and a protest against the disastrous illegal alien amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens that will crater black unemployment. The Black American Leadership Alliance’s (BALA) letter highlights the fact that amnesty will have a high cost for the black community,” Front Page Magazine says.
“The letter was signed by a number of black political figures from across the spectrum of the right and the left, including Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, president and founder of the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), T. Willard Fair President and CEO, Urban League of Greater Miami, Frank Morris, Ph. D. Former Executive Director, Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and Kevin Jackson, radio host and executive director of The Black Sphere.”
