Please note the following received from the Grassfire Organization this PM, 5/15/08:
Our Capitol contacts have just informed us that Dianne Feinstein
(D-CA) is attempting to attach an amnesty amendment for
illegal farm workers to the Iraq supplemental appropriations
Details are still coming in, but we do know the bill would
provide legal status to 1.35 million illegal aliens working
in agriculture by granting them five-year visas.
Tentatively called the Emergency Agriculture Relief Act of 2008,
this is a slight-of-hand, scaled-down version of Feinstein's
AgJobs amnesty bill that she had previously introduced.
Lynn......you might want to take a look at website: www.numberusa.com
, they have additional info on this amnesty proposal being attached to the Iraq Supplemental Appropriations Spending Bill.
Both groups are calling for those concerned contact their senators to express objection to this attached amnesty ploy. You may want to put out the word to call the senators!
Thanks for your attention to this matter.
