Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee (ALIPAC) is endorsing Scott Brown for US Senate today due to his campaign's focus on the issue of the illegal immigration and his opponent Martha Coakley's support for Amnesty for illegal aliens.
ALIPAC is one of the nation's largest multi-ethnic and non-partisan grassroots organizations dedicated to opposing illegal immigration and amnesty for illegals, while supporting the enforcement of America's existing immigration laws and borders.
"Scott Brown has publicly stated he opposes Amnesty for illegal aliens while Coakley has state she supports Amnesty," said William Gheen President of ALIPAC. "His vote in opposition to Amnesty will be needed in a few weeks as President Obama, with Democrats in the Senate and House, and a handful of misguided Republicans attempt to pass new Amnesty legislation."
Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty legislation was defeated in 2006 and 2007 due to massive public opposition, which collapsed the Washington, DC phone systems connected to the offices of lawmakers. Certified scientific polls continue to show that 66-80% of Americans support immigration enforcement, instead of a "path to citizenship" for illegal aliens.
Amnesty legislation was filed in the US House on December 12, with 91 Democrat cosponsors lead by Congressman Luis Gutierrez supporting the bill. The legislation would legalize over 12 million illegal aliens currently in the US, increase current hyper legal immigration levels, and turn immigration regulating efforts over to big business. Democrats in the US Senate are working with a few Republicans in an attempt to file similar legislation in the Senate this month.
Scott Brown's Democratic opponent, Martha Coakley, has clearly stated she supports Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty.
ALIPAC is making a donation to the Scott Brown campaign today and is encouraging the organization's 30,000 supporters to consider donating, volunteering, and voting for Scott Brown for US Congress via http://www.brownforussenate.com/
ALIPAC will also be conducting talk radio interviews around the nation alerting Americans to the impact the Brown Vs. Coakley race could have on the 2010 Amnesty legislation. The Coakley / Brown race will decide who fills the seat of Pro Amnesty titan Ted Kennedy on Jan 19.
The endorsement of the Brown campaign is ALIPAC's first endorsement of 2010. The non-business PAC, founded in 2004, distributes the nation's most comprehensive voter guide on immigration related issues during elections with almost 200 campaigns endorsed in 2008.
ALIPAC also supports Scott Brown due to his prior opposition as a state legislator against MA Governor Deval Patrick's support for benefits for illegal aliens such as in-state tuition and licenses. ALIPAC helped defeat in-state tuition for illegals in NJ yesterday.
Here is the prominent campaign promise of Scott Brown regarding illegal immigration that inspired the endorsement from ALIPAC
"I welcome legal immigration to this country. However, we are also a nation of laws and government should not adopt policies that encourage illegal immigration. Providing driver's licenses and in-state tuition to illegal immigrant families will act as a magnet in drawing more people here in violation of the law and it will impose new costs on taxpayers. I oppose amnesty, and I believe we ought to strengthen our border enforcement and institute an employment verification system with penalties for companies that hire illegal immigrants." -- Scott Brown at http://www.brownforussenate.com/
