ALIPAC Congratulates Americans for Defeating Dream Amnesty
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)
September 21, 2010
While Democratic Senators Reid and Durbin complain on the Senate floor about the latest defeat of the Dream Act Amnesty by a cloture vote that fell four votes short of the 60 needed to make it into law, ALIPAC is thanking supporters and all American activists and groups that rose up to defeat the bill.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC deployed new strategies and an extensive national volunteer force in the battle against Reid and Obama’s attempt to insert Dream Act Amnesty into today’s defense spending bill. This morning, ALIPAC endorsed 14 candidates for US Senate based on their opposition to Dream. By pulling the bill into the elections and flooding campaign offices, as well as, DC offices with calls opposing Amnesty, ALIPAC helped defeat Dream Act for the third time.
“Now it’s time for political payback!” said William Gheen President of ALIPAC. “President Obama, Senators Reid and Durbin have made a huge tactical mistake. By energizing our supporters and delivering a morale quenching defeat to Dream and Comprehensive Amnesty supporters, the way is clear for massive political change on November 2!”
ALIPAC would like to thank the thousands of activists who worked hard to rally Americans against the Dream Act cloture vote that failed today. Many people gave their time and funds to secure this victory for those dedicated to the enforcement of America’s existing border and immigration laws instead of Amnesty.
Despite the fact that America’s two top conservative news sources, Fox News and Drudge Report, failed to alert their conservative supporters and talk radio show hosts about the impending vote at 2:30pm EST today, ALIPAC’s extensive communications network, along with the networks of other fine bloggers, local, and national organizations, was enough to defeat.
“Today’s victory was a victory for Americans, grass roots conservatives, and the new media,” said William Gheen. “We have proven we can defeat Amnesty legislation with little or no TV or newspaper coverage. Now we are going to prove we have the power to throw some of the most powerful people in America out of office, if we all pull together to secure a peaceful, political, velvet revolution in America. Revolution now! Revolution now America!”
Americans for Legal Immigration is now endorsing 159 Federal candidates for office and will work hard this week to direct the momentum created by today’s victory over illegal aliens and their supporters into more victories in the elections.
ALIPAC is contacting the Civil Rights division of the FBI to try to identify and press charges against the Dream Act Amnesty supporters that attempted to disrupt our phone communications for the last days by making hundreds of harassing phone calls to tie up the lines, block communications, and interfere with our civil rights as Americans.
