Urge your Congressman to Oppose the AgJOBS Amnesty!

This new fax has been posted in your Action Buffet based on your answers to the Interest Survey.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Howard Berman (both D-CA) have reintroduced the AgJOBS amnesty bill. Pro-illegal alien worker and big business groups have been attempting to pass this amnesty for several years and have not yet been successful. However, it is appalling that any Member of Congress would even suggest a mass amnesty when nearly 14 million Americans are out of work.

Please send a fax to your Member(s) of Congress (who have not cosponsored the AgJOBS amnesty in the past) and urge him/her to oppose this anti-American worker amnesty!

Additional information about the AgJOBS amnesty:

The AgJOBS bill would require the Department of Homeland Security to grant an "emergency" Amnesty to more than 1.35 million illegal aliens, using an "emergency agricultural worker status." In order to qualify for the Amnesty, illegal aliens would need to (based on the 2008 version):

show that they worked 863 hours or 150 work days or earned at least $7,000 in agricultural employment during the past four years,

file an Amnesty application through DHS or a "qualified designated entity" during an 18-month application period,

not be a known terrorist or convicted criminal,

and pay a fine of $250.

Once an illegal alien meets the minimum requirements, they can acquire legal status for their spouse and children, get a Social Security card, and become immune to future prosecution for Social Security fraud.

In order to maintain their "emergency agricultural worker status," former illegal aliens would have to complete 100 days of agricultural work each year for up to five years, allowing them to compete for American jobs the other 265 days per year. They would also be required to pay federal income taxes.
