Ex-Black Caucus Head Is Against Amnesty

A press release from Progressives for Immigration Reform:

Progressives for Immigration Reform Calls for Immigration Time Out

WASHINGTON, April 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Progressives for Immigration Reform, a national non-profit organization has launched a nationwide campaign urging Americans to sign up and support an immigration time out petition to preserve America’s jobs.  The campaign, led by Frank Morris, former President of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation urges black leaders to address the reality of immigration’s impact on joblessness in minority and low income communities.

According to Morris, "with more than 15 million unemployed Americans, political leaders in Washington are listening to the wrong people.  It’s time for Washington policy makers to stop admitting more than 1 million new foreign workers every year to accept American jobs.  It’s time to remind our leaders who they represent."

Please add your contact information and join the thousands of Americans who are ready for Congress to preserve American jobs for America’s legal workers at: www.timeoutforjobs.org.   

Progressives for Immigration Reform (PFIR) is a non-profit organization seeking to educate the public on the unintended consequences of large-scale immigration.

"Uncontrolled immigration is having a devastating impact on many poor communities," says Leah Durant, Executive Director of Progressives for Immigration Reform.  "Although the United States should do all it can to help the world’s poor, our leaders should strive for policies that address the needs of America’s poor before importing millions of new workers."

This petition can be accessed at:  www.timeoutforjobs.org.

    Well well well……..it seems [progressive] black folks only care about something if it involves THEM.

    Well duh! We have been saying for the longest time that if it weren’t for the immigrant workers, we wouldn’t have so many problems. And the fact that black people are ALWAYS underemployed or unemployed, even in good times, should be even more clear now that the economy is terrible.

    Wake up dumb-dumbs! Amnesty is only good for Democrats, and only for 1 day every 2 years, election day, and terrible for everyone else the rest of the time.

    “Although the United States should do all it can to help the world’s poor,”

    Stop right there bubba. We’ve got plenty of poor here who are actually trying to make it with little or no guvmint handouts we need to help first. Screw the rest of the world, they for the most part are jealous of us and hate us but at still at the same time have their grubby little hands out.

    It really ticks me off when other countries slam us for not doing enough whenever there is a situation like Haiti or when that tsunami hit over in Asia but on the other hand they don’t donate squat.

    For once I can agree with something called progressive and say we need to stop this talk of amnesty. I really have to wonder what their motive is though, that’s what is perplexing. It’s like waiting for the other shoe to drop: “We need to stop amnesty BUT—“

    Translation – “We’ve just realized that once again, the darker your skin, the less government graft you’ll be entitled to if we allow a zillion less-dark people in to raid the coffers with us. Therefore, little brown people from Other Countries … you gots to go.”

    One has to wonder what the real agenda is. When you Google CIS you find it has issued a number of articles and reports which discuss how immigration has hurt the poor (read black) workers. So I have to think that the African-American rabble rousers are now feeling the effect of the open borders policies of the dimocrats. The large numbers of illegals (not to mention the criminal elements from south of the border) are threatening the freebie pot considered sacrosanct to them. From what I have read the Hispanic communities do not wholely support the African-American agenda. Rather they have formed their own. On the criminal side we are all aware of the violence in Mexico over drugs and it has spread into the States. So my read on this is that the African-American communities want to make sure their “president” doesn’t forget them and what they have done to advance his agenda. It could make for some interesting events. This could cause a further schism in the dimlib ranks as they are torn between two of their favorites. I hope it does cause a schism as it will further the downfall of the left and pave the way for Americans to regain the country of their Founding Fathers.

    Yes, yes..and that would be……certain layabouts, methinks?

    Mr. Morris is about to have his wish come true in Arizona. With its new immigration law, Arizona should have plenty of job openings very soon. I doubt, however, there will be a mad rush of the CBC’s constituents into Arizona. We have been assured these are the jobs Americans will not do.
