If the President’s outrageous initiative to provide millions of illegal aliens with employment authorization and if our government’scontinuing failures to truly secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative” and let them know about your concerns in no uncertain terms! This is not only your right- it is your obligation!
All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!
We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.
This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!
You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!
Democracy is not a spectator sport!
Lead, follow or get out of the way!

Up to 1.4 million Unauthorized Immigrants Could
Benefit from New Deportation Policy
Up to 1.4 million children and young adults who are in the
United States illegally could potentially benefit from today’s
announcement by the Obama Administration about changes in deportation
policies, according to an estimate from the Pew
Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center.
The 1.4 million estimate includes 700,000 unauthorized immigrants
who are ages 18 to 30 but arrived in the U.S as children and are
currently enrolled in school or have graduated from high school; and
an additional 700,000 who are under the age of 18 and are enrolled in
school. This includes 150,000 who are currently enrolled in high
Overall, the 1.4 million estimate represents about 12% of the 11.2
million unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. as of 2010, according to
an estimate by the Pew Hispanic Center. Among the 1.4 million
potential beneficiaries of the new policy, some 70% are from Mexico.
For details on the numbers and characteristics of unauthorized
immigrants in the U.S, see the Pew Hispanic Center report

A Pew Hispanic Center survey
taken late last year found that by a margin of 59% to 27%, Latinos
oppose the deportation policies of the Obama Administration. Among
Latinos, some 41% are aware that the number of deportations of
unauthorized immigrants annually has been higher during the Obama
Administration than during the George W. Bush Administration, while
36% say the two Administrations have deported the same number of
unauthorized immigrants, and 10% say fewer have been deported under
the Obama administration.
400,000 unauthorized immigrants were deported annually during the
first two years of the Obama Administration—about 30% more than the
annual average during the second term of the Bush Administration.
Among those deported in 2010, nearly
all (97%) were Hispanic. By comparison, among all unauthorized
According to the same 2011 Pew
Hispanic Center survey, 91% of Latinos support the DREAM Act, a
proposal that would grant legal status to unauthorized immigrant
children if they attend college or serve in the U.S. military for two
years. And 84% of Latinos favor granting in-state tuition at public
colleges to unauthorized immigrants who graduated from high school in
