The U.S. government is mostly run by just five people: Barack Obama,
Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi.
This week, these five pushed through a horrible Omnibus spending bill
to fund the government through next September.
The bill amounts to a betrayal of American voters, especially on immigration
Where do I begin to condemn this? I'll start with House Speaker Paul
It didn't take long for Ryan to break all his promises on immigration,
When he was running for Speaker two months ago, Ryan promised he would
not bring up immigration bills that did not have the backing of a majority
of Republican House Members.
Yet as soon as he got the chance, Ryan snuck several huge immigration
giveaways into the Omnibus spending bill Congress approved today. It
Nearly QUADRUPLES the number of H-2B low-skilled foreign workers allowed
in this year. This could raise the total of these workers this year
from 66,000 to 264,000.
Not only that...
FUNDS a large increase in Syrian and other refugee resettlement in this
country. Instead of a timeout and a full security review, Congress handed
Obama everything he wants.
FUNDS Obama's catch-and-release policy that virtually stops deportations.
FUNDS Sanctuary Cities, so that cities like San Francisco that refuse
to turn over jailed illegal aliens to the feds will face no cut in funding.
MAINTAINS tax credits to illegal aliens in the form of the Earned Income
Tax Credit. That is, if a family is poor enough, they not only pay no
income tax, the government pays THEM. Yes, that includes illegal aliens!
Also, Congress continues to allow illegal aliens to claim child tax
credits on their tax returns.
FUNDS the continued relocation into America of the unaccompanied minors
who are marching across the border into Texas and states. The numbers
of these crossing the border is way up again this year.
Even with all these outrages I've mentioned, there are still MORE terrible
things hidden in the Omnibus bill, which passed both the House and the
Senate. A hopeful sign is that 95 House Republicans joined with 18 House
Democrats, and 26 Senate Republicans joined with 6 Senate Democrats
to vote NO on this monstrosity. Yet, most Republicans and most all the
Democrats voted yes, and it passed.
Does anyone speak for regular, working Americans? Is anyone willing
to fight for them?
NumbersUSA stands up for regular Americans. We fight amnesties. We fight
birthright citizenship. We fight chain migration. We fight ever increasing
immigration. We do have our champions in Congress. Sen. Jeff Sessions
and Rep. Steve King are among dozens of Congressional leaders who are
fighting the status quo. But they are outnumbered.
NumbersUSA and our army of citizen activists fought these Omnibus giveaways
with everything we had: phone calls, faxes, social media, lobbying.
Every time Congress votes directly on Amnesties or increasing immigration,
NumbersUSA wins. Yet when just five people dominate government policy,
and those people are Obama, McConnell, Reid, Ryan, Pelosi, terrible
things are snuck into gigantic spending bills like this one.
To stop this nonsense, we have to become even stronger.
Ted, if you hate what Obama and Congress just did to America, think
about this. All next year, Congress will continue these kinds of shenanigans
unless we stop it.
Have you had enough? Then help NumbersUSA fight. Don't give up! Don't
give in! FIGHT for your country!
We need thousands more patriotic American citizens to make a gift by
year's end to put us in fighting shape. We now have millions of activists,
but we need more giving on a regular basis. Will you step up and support
us again this month?
Please give, to save our country.
