VIDEO Keeping score at Georgia’s Republican-controlled state Senate:

Who voted to continue to allow illegal aliens to obtain and keep Georgia drivers licenses?

Ever ask yourself what really goes on under the Gold Dome? Here’s something. There is a link to official video at the bottom. See if you recognize anyone. 

With a Republican-super majority, on March 3, 2014 -“Cross-over Day” - the Georgia state Senate voted on an amendment to legislation related to drivers licenses. Republican state Senator Bill Heath, unable to move his own bill out of the Senate Rules Committee, attempted to attach the same language to SB 392.

The amendment’s addition would have stopped the issuance of drivers licenses to illegal aliens who have benefitted from Obama’s illegal delayed action on deportation DACA amnesty. It is important to know that the DACA  illegal aliens are still illegal aliens.

The Heath Amendment, with co-signers Senators Mike Crane, John Albers, Josh McKoon, William Ligon and Judson Hill, failed by a vote of 27-8. There are 56 state Senators. 38 Republicans, 18 Democrats. For the Obama-voters, this vote shows that 21 members of the Senate did not vote.

NOTE: This vote was not tallied on the public Senate vote machine and was done by a “stand and be counted” hand vote that was not officially recorded. Handy, ehh?

A “YEA” vote was in favor of illegal aliens losing the ability to access a Georgia drivers license. A “NAY” vote on the amendment was a vote to continue to allow illegal aliens to have a Georgia drivers license.

*Georgia state Senators voting “YEA” on the amendment (all Republicans):

Bill Heath

Steve Gooch

Josh McKoon

Judson Hill

Don Balfour

John Albers

William Ligon

David Shafer

*Officially excused from the Senate floor during this important vote:

Mike Crane

Tim  Golden

Donzella James  (D)

Jeff  Mullis

Bruce Thompson

Renee Unterman

*Subtracting the “YEA” votes and the excused list of excused senators (who did not vote) gives us the list of Georgia state Senators who voted “NAY” on the amendment. Or did not vote. This is called “walking” on a vote so as not to offend anyone politically.

What would real “Immigration Reform” look like?

The below is a press release from the Federation for American Immigration Reform on what real, principled “immigration reform” would do for Americans. What a concept, huh?

I’ll add two points:

1) The nationally suicidal extension of birthright citizenship to children born to illegal aliens should be challenged and overturned. 2) And adopting English as the official language of these United States would go a long way towards uniting the most diverse nation in the world. Si?

This ought to keep the anti-enforcement nuts babbling for a few days. Have fun!

From FAIR:

Principled Immigration Reform Puts Americans First

PR Newswire

House GOP Leaders Must Rule Out Amnesty and Increased Immigration, Says FAIR

WASHINGTON, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Under the leadership of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Republicans are drafting a set of immigration reform principles to guide them as they debate immigration in 2014. They plan to release these principles in time for their January 29th GOP retreat.

At the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), we hope these principles will finally place the interests of Americans first – an idea that is conspicuously absent from the reforms being proposed by the leaders of either party.

FAIR's core principles for immigration reform are:

No more amnesties. We can create clever euphemisms, but the only people we will be fooling are ourselves. Any policy that legalizes illegal aliens is amnesty and will lead to even more illegal immigration. This includes any "pathways to citizenship" or legalization programs that grant green cards or work visas.

Secure our borders. The last time our government measured border security, only 13 percent of our borders are under "operational control." That is simply unacceptable. To get the job done, we must use all the tools at our disposal. We must put more boots on the ground, add infrastructure (such as fencing) and implement proven technology to reduce the flow of illegal aliens across the border. 

End visa overstays. Approximately 30-40 percent of illegal aliens are aliens who entered the U.S. legally, but overstayed their visas. To end this practice, we must add Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and finally implement a biometric entry-exit system at all ports of entry—a system already required by law.

Stop the hiring of illegal workers. Unless we remove the incentives to enter the U.S. illegally, we will not stop illegal immigration. We must eliminate the jobs magnet by requiring all employers use E-Verify and demand rigorous worksite enforcement that holds both employers and illegal workers accountable.

Robustly and uniformly enforce our immigration laws. Policies that direct law enforcement to ignore violations of our laws undermine the rule of law and are inherently unjust to law-abiding legal immigrants. We must enforce our existing immigration laws, eliminate fraud throughout the system, and prohibit the adoption of policies by state/local governments that encourage illegal immigration or provide benefits to illegal aliens. Enforcement doesn't require mass deportation. If we enforce our laws and remove the incentives to remain here, many illegal aliens will go home on their own.

Implement a merit-based immigration system. Our immigration system should choose immigrants based on an objective assessment of who is most likely to benefit the economic and social interests of our nation.

End family chain migration. Family-based immigration must be limited to spouses and unmarried minor children. Entitlements for extended family migration lead to an immigration system that is not based on merit, runs on autopilot and fosters exponential growth in immigration.

Support the American worker. American workers are the best and most productive in the world. They are eager to work. What they need is the opportunity to compete for jobs at fair wages, not unfair competition created by massive guest worker programs. In addition, just because we could benefit from some skilled immigration doesn't mean we should rubber stamp visas for every applicant with certain skills. We should develop and encourage our own STEM professionals, not discourage them by flooding the labor market.

Limit overall immigration. We are a nation of over 315 million people. We need to consider how much we want to grow and how that growth will affect jobs, our environment, resources and quality of life in America.

About FAIR

Founded in 1979, FAIR is the country's largest immigration reform group. With over 250,000 members nationwide, FAIR fights for immigration policies that serve national interests, not special interests. FAIR believes that immigration reform must enhance national security, improve the economy, protect jobs, preserve our environment, and establish a rule of law that is recognized and enforced.

@DA King: There is a very good article on today's The Daily Beast involving the failure of Alabama HB 86, this legislation has been described as the toughest anti-immigration law in the country.

What has happened, the AL Legislator has written a check that the cities and towns won't or can't cash.

DA, perhaps the failure of this legislation could be the topic of your next interview with a Spanish language TV station.

English language version, VIDEO, 12 minutes: Univision’s Jorge Ramos interviews D.A. King (me) of the Georgia-based Dustin Inman Society. Original version aired in Spanish on the August 18, 2013 edition of the ‘Al Punto,” Univision’s Sunday morning current affairs show.

We are grateful to Mr. Ramos and the Univision network for the opportunity to reveal the pro-enforcement side of the amnesty battle. We note that the MSM should take a moment to consider similar allowance. Mr. Ramos’ well-done website is very educational.

From that website  :

“Jorge Ramos…has been called “Star newscaster of Hispanic TV” and “Hispanic TV’s No. 1 correspondent and key to a huge voting bloc” by The Wall Street Journal. Time magazine included him in the list of “the 25 most influential Hispanics in the United States” and Newsweek in its list of 50 political and media figures…

A survey conducted by the Pew Hispanic Center found that Ramos is the second most recognized Latino leader in the country. Latino Leaders magazine chose him as one of “The Ten Most Admired Latinos” and “101 Top Leaders of the Latino Community in the U.S.”

“Ramos is like an amalgam of Brian Williams and Keith Obermann, though with more gravitas than either.” (The Daily Beast)

The Miami Herald said, “As household names go, Jorge Ramos is huge…in Miami, Los Angeles and Houston, his newscast consistently beats out all the other networks for the top ratings”. More than 2 million people tune in daily to his newscast and almost a million to his Sunday morning political show. (The Nielsen Company)

He has interviewed some of the most influential leaders in the world: Barack Obama, John McCain, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Harry Reid, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, John Edwards, Al Gore, George Bush Sr., John Kerry, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, Felipe Calderon and dozens of Latin American presidents.

Jorge Ramos is an immigrant. He came to the United States as a student in 1983. In November 1986, at age 28, he became one of the youngest national news anchors in the history of American television… “ 

We happily make the Spanish language version available For our foreign language speaking friends.

Thank you Jorge Ramos! Muchas Gracias sir!

Julia, the imaginary illegal alien (if only they all were) and her adventures speak volumes about illegals and pandering politicians.

See Julia’s adventures. Hat tip: Center for Immigration Studies and The Blaze.

BTW: Illegal aliens are living so deep in the shadows that they were on hand in the Senate galleries for this Thursday’s 68-32 vote for the Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill, and they yelled out Obama's campaign chant when the vote was announced.

Both Georgia’s GOP U.S. Senators voted against the Rubio led amnesty scam.

Here is another chance to hear the truth about the Senate amnesty scam. And to find out what the agenda-driven MSM has been hiding from you.

So, did you already know the amnesty bill would allow the leftists to help guide, “educate” and supervise the would-be replacement voters if the scam were to pass? And that they would be paid for it with tax dollars? Wait- did you know that already deported aliens could come back to the good old USA and be legalized, then bring in their families? That is true!  Funny that our U.S. Senators haven’t made a fuss about that isn’t it?

FYI: The Senate will likely have a final vote on the legislation to end immigration enforcement next week. Neither Georgia Senator has picked a side. No kidding.

From the Daily Caller an educational video you won’t see on “the news.” : (just) “Six big problems with the immigration bill from someone who has actually read it.”

“Former New York lieutenant governor Betsy McCaughey bets “you can’t find five members of Congress who have read” the Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration bill.

The former Democrat is experienced at  reading large bills the Congress seems inclined to pass without reading, such as Obamacare. She tabs them, underlines them and tries to see the big picture of what will happen if the provisions of the bill are implemented.

In an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, McCaughey brought her dog-eared immigration bill with her and pointed to it repeatedly.”

Watch the video!

Call both Senators!

The Democrat controlled Senate will begin consideration of the Schumer – Rubio amnesty sometime today and could vote on it as early as next week. It cannot pass without some GOP votes.

Barack Obama is pushing the bill and assuring Republicans that another amnesty will help their party. Because, as we all know, helping the GOP is tops on Obama’s agenda!

Some Republicans, maybe including both Georgia Senators, will vote for the bill.

We think a picture is indeed worth a thousand words.

Here is info for the people who keep calling us asking what to do: contact Senator Johnny Isakson at his Atlanta office. Please know the illegal alien lobby has been calling for six months.

@Robert: It has been demonstrated for many years that the anti immigration legal efforts have not been successful. That's why we have millions and millions of undocumented immigrants here. Are you following this? A point which you and others have clearly missed over and over. What you and others continue to say is, "enforce the laws". You and others have NOT made any unique suggestions, if you are going to complain then make some suggestions involving a solution. Since you and others don't make viable suggestions but do whine about the problem that qualifies all of you as "cry babies".

You are finished.

People are (finally) starting to ask questions about the Schumer-Rubio amnesty legislation that will soon be considered on the floor of the U.S. Senate. The word is that there will be a final vote sometime around June 10. Maybe you have noticed by now: The MSM is doing a stellar job of passing on the talking points from the open borders lobby, but a poor job of allowing the average American to understand the actual bill.

It is a scam that would legalize 11-20 million now undocumented Democrats and would not  result in “secure borders.” Making it a  do-over of 1986, only this time it’s is even worse.

So, for anyone who wants to have the facts, we provide a link to “Top 40 Reasons to Oppose the Gang of Eight Amnesty Bill“, from FAIR.” The truth about the bill comes off a little different than the Marco Rubio radio ads produced by “conservative” Mark Zuckerburg, doesn’t it? What’s that? You haven’t been told that Rubio’s media crusade is funded by liberal Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg who wants ever cheaper computer/tech workers?? Hmm..

Stay tuned: Next, we explore how U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson may vote on the 2013 amnesty-again scam.

Since the posting of this article, I have asked multiple people here, including Marie, Robert and Roger to give us some of their suggestions regarding immigration control, other than the usual, "enforce the laws". NOT ONE suggestion from any of the aforementioned. We are now left with the understanding, that the "wingers" are whiners without any kind of a new concept to a very old problem.

The whining is the best the "right" can do, they whined their way to a "smackdown" in 2008 and they whined their way to a second significant loss in 2012. The 2012 loss came as a big surprise to folks like Karl Rove and the cast of misfits at Fox.

Take a stroll down “it’s not amnesty” memory lane with this short video produced two years ago by FAIR and noted  by Frontpage magazine. In it you can watch the actual sales pitch for amnesty in the United States House of Representatives from 1986, and you can hear the slogans and contrived talking points of the day.

See if they don’t sound rather familiar.

Thrill to seeing a younger Chuck Schumer explain that the only answer is legalization and that the illegal aliens are victims. Try hard to remember that the American people were promised that the 1986 legalization was a “one time” event and would solve the problem forever.

While you watch, try hard to convince yourself that anybody selling amnesty this year has any more intention of keeping their word than in the 80’s.

Try to convince yourself that were the Rubio/Schumer amnesty scam to pass , the illegal alien lobby would stop being the illegal alien lobby.

Try to convince yourself that we really need the 33 million new low-wage job seekers the Senate amnesty bill would bring in during the next decade.

Try hard to forget that it is a coalition of big-business and the tribalists in the radical left who sponsor these charlatans.

Try to convince yourself that Marco Rubio is really an honorable, conservative man with the best interests of the USA in mind when he shills for Schumer and another amnesty.

Try to convince yourself that this time, it would be different…

Watch the video:

See the post above by the Azlan superiority Latino who acknowledges that Mexicans do not recognize the rights and property of Gringos because they own this land.

Too bad they are too stupid or too lazy to solve the problems in their own country.

Wages for jobs illegals have invaded have plummeted and yet they are able to send billions back to what they consider their home countries. And although Roswell by 2010 census has 16% Latino residents, not one attended among the thousands at the memorial.

More immigration “labor shortage” fraud education: VIDEO of immigration lawyers teaching employers how not to hire Americans in America

Below we link to a short YouTube video produced in 2007 – during the last congressional attempt to repeat the amnesty of 1986 and to expand immigration into the United States. You know, because we need more workers  so badly .

The video was recorded during a seminar staged by immigration lawyers who were hired to instruct employers on how get around American laws designed to protect American workers. As you will see, these attorneys are openly instructing willing employers on how not to hire American workers. So they can employ cheaper imported foreign workers without getting caught when they illegally pass over American job applicants.

Why? Because foreign labor works for less than American labor.

Because massive, immigration and the war on enforcement is all about the money and political power.

Because the fact that 20-some million Americans – including real, legal immigrants who came here in good faith – are out of a job or under employed mean nothing when it comes to the quarterly profit report.

With the help and protection of many in the biased and complicit media, the open borders rope-sellers in the U.S. have for years been screaming about a "labor shortage" and advocated for another amnesty and increased immigration. And then, even more foreign “temporary” workers.

Many of the replacement workers come to the U.S. on what is called an H1B visa. Although the visa is usually referred to by the press as a “guest worker visa” the holder can apply for a green card – and then stay in the U.S. permanently.

An H1B dependent employer must attest that by hiring a H1B worker, it is not displacing any US worker for a similar position within 90 days before or after filing a H1B petition. The employer must also attest that he has done a certain amount of advertising to recruit American workers.

This is a first in a series of videos to be offered here to educate readers on the scam that is the Gang of Eight amnesty/immigration expansion legislation. The current bill would roughly double the number of H1B workers admitted to the U.S.

And add about 33 million new job-seekers in the next decade.

Watch the video.

Listen for: “I get 50 resumes, my  God, the last thing I want to do is interview these applicants.” And “our goal is clearly not to find a qualified U.S. worker.” And “our objective is to…” And “…Hoping not to find a qualified worker…”

Then consider calling Senator Johnny Isakson’s Cobb County office (770-661-0999) -to ask him about the alleged “labor shortage” and how he plans to vote on the Gang of Eight amnesty “we need more workers” bill.

I remember when D.A. King and Terry Anderson of Los Angeles, along with so many other immigration patriots, started to warn American citizens of the threat to their jobs, wages, language, and whole culture. They were the first along with Glenn Spencer and others to try and warn American citizens what the left it trying to do to this country. Now Republican RINO's are joining these toxic leftists, people like Lindsay Graham, Jeff Flake, John McCain and on and on. Charles Schumer did indeed LIE, in 1986 when he argued as a Congressman that the amnesty was neccessaray to solve the "immigration problem". Now here is this Bad Actor, Schumer, back again for a second chance to damage Ameriacan citizens their friends and families even more by saying "this is the only way". etc. It is obvious that Schumer and gang have nothing whatever left over for American citizens, and everything for foreign nationals from one of the most corrupt nations in the world-Mexico. Folks, please, don't let Mr. King and the American nationa down by supporting Amnesty or ANY, ANY POLTICIAN WHO PUTS AMERICANS LAST. We have boys and girls risking their lives for this nation and the likes of Schumer and gang spitting on them by their mass amnesty b.s.---- PEACE.
