Back to Georgia Heritage Council
Fellow Georgians, now is the time to stand up and let our U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson KNOW that we're sick and tired of sellouts and
plans to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. See the letter below from Roy Beck of NumbersUSA. You may have seen the video that NumbersUSA produced, but
if not ---YOU NEED TO SEE IT!!! We know that granting amnesty to 12 million illegals will only invite millions more. The America we know and value
will cease to exist if the current level of immigration is not sharply reduced. The numbers speak for themselves.
NumbersUSA Video "Immigration by the Numbers"
It's 14 minutes, but VERY much worth the time. Please share this video with friends, family and co-workers.
This betrayal below is IN YOUR FACE folks! This Amnesty Plan (supposedly "better than Kennedy's plan") is still an Amnesty plan. If we Georgians cannot light up
Sen. Isakson's phone and fax machine, if we cannot bombard him with letters, then we deserve the fate we receive. Read below...

Probably no other
state has more citizens who are more worked up about illegal immigration than Georgia.
So why has your own U.S.
Senator decided to come up with his own version of an amnesty?
The Isakson Amnesty was revealed for the first time
today in an opinion piece article in National Review.
Lots of details are unclear at this moment.
But I am sure
that you and every Georgian you know will want to call an office of Sen. Isakson and find
out what is going on.
Senator Johnny Isakson
One Overton Park Atlanta,
U.S. Senate Washington, DC
The National Review, which has typically opposed rewards for
illegal aliens, provided a convoluted and surprising editorial today that says Sen. McCain
should stop endorsing his and Sen. Kennedy's amnesty and insteady support Isakson's
amnesty. Strangely, the editorial does not itself endorse the Isakson amnesty. It just says Isakson's is a better
amnesty than the McCain/Kennedy one.
But why should Sen. Isakson be trying to come
up with a "better" amnesty. What happened to his opposition to illegal immigration and to his support for the full
rule of law?
Here is what the National Review said about the Isakson Amnesty:
McCain should endorse an immigration reform that won’t repeat this mistake (the 1986 law that gave amnesty to 3
million illegal aliens in exchange for more enforcement that never happened) and can enjoy broad support in Republican ranks:
in other words, the proposal of Sen. Johnny Isakson.
Isakson would prohibit
granting legal status to any illegal alien until border-security measures were fully operational. His bill would also create
an identification system to verify the legality of workers. Only when the current chaos is under control would a guest-worker
program go into effect. (Isakson’s plan would be even better if a separate, expedited vote were required to create such a
program.) This sequential approach offers a welcome compromise between the border-security and amnesty camps, and represents
a realistic acknowledgment that the current system is incapable of handling the enormous demands of a legalization
The key point is this:
Isakson is proposing giving LEGAL STATUS
to most of the 12 million illegal aliens as soon as certain border security measures are in place.
It also sounds like
he would require some kind of workplace enforcement.
As all of you know, if we truly put border security and workplace
enforcement fully into place, there is no need to give an amnesty (legalization) to illegal aliens because they will begin to
go home in droves and fewer and fewer of them will arrive anew.
Those of you in Georgia are the
ones who can have the most influence over your Senator. He was elected by you and is supposed to serve you.
want to reward all those illegal aliens in Georgia with an amnesty?
It appears that Sen. Isakson's disagreement with the 1986 amnesty is not that it rewarded 3 million illegal
aliens with U.S. citizenship but that it didn't implement enforcement provisions first.
We hope the citizens of
Georgia will make it clear that the problem with amnesty is that it legalizes illegal aliens.
If you let illegal
aliens stay in this country legally, you have given an amnesty -- because you have given them the thing they came to steal
which is legal residence and the legal right to work.
Why is Sen. Isakson giving
up on the rule of law and on protecting Georgia workers from the wage depression of all this illegal foreign labor and from
the community deterioration of all this illegal foreign population?
Is this really what Georgians
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND OUT,
