Nev. Sen. Heller does turnabout on amnesty

Important: Calls in opposition to amnesty needed NOW

Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) reports that Republican U.S. Sen. Dean Heller, Democrat Harry Reid’s Nevada seatmate, is caving on the issue of illegal immigration and is now onboard with the amnesty scheme. During his 2012 close election campaign Heller stated his opposition to the DREAM Act, and disapproved of amnesty for the millions of illegals currently in the U.S. in violation of our law.  Along the campaign trail, Heller talked tough about defending the border, ending birthright citizenship, declaring English the official language and opposing amnesty. For his views, he was hammered by the growing Nevada Hispanic community. AZ Sen. Jeff Flake’s close congressional cohort, U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez relentlessly slammed him.

Now, the finger-to-the-wind politician Heller has seen the light. In this editorial published in the Las Vegas Review Journal over the weekend, he swings into U-Turn mode, with carefully crafted words, saying “reform” is necessary, and announcing he is now working with the infamous “Gang of 8.”

With Heller joining the “Gang of 8 Republicans,” (Graham, McCain, Flake, and Rubio), this means that Harry Reid and Obama only need 2 more Republican traitors on board with Amnesty to have the 60 votes they need to pass a cloture vote and then pass Amnesty bill S. 744!  Illegal voters in Nevada helped return Harry Reid to the senate in 2010.

NumbersUSA has issued an alert stating that apathy levels and lower frequency of calls are leading lawmakers who oppose Amnesty to consider voting for this bill. Act now. Silence is taken as consent.

Remember, according to the far left Washington Post-ABC poll, only 18 percent of Americans support amnesty first legislation. When over half of all American college graduates are underemployed, what is the justification for bringing in more foreign workers?

    Please, Heller is a member of the LDS Church. Did you really believe that he would NOT back “immigration reform”?

    “Mormon leader: Obama’s immigration plan matches LDS values”

    And Raul Labrador, the Republican Congressman from Idaho who has been working on “immigration reform” in the House, isn’t JUST Hispanic. He is a member of the LDS Church as well!

      Good information about the LDS connection. The Catholic Church is also in the tank for illegals. That was the primary reason my family and many extended family members have taken a hike. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Justice for Immigrants (notice the dropped word “illegal?”) calls their stance “compassionate.” In truth, it’s a reaction to falling numbers. Church attendance is shrinking. The illegals the church hopes will gain legal status through amnesty are seen as the last great hope.
      I’ve given up trying to fathom why Catholics and the Church hierarchy overwhelmingly supported and voted for pro-abortion Obama.

      USCCB has teamed up with unions and every conceivable liberal group. They even have an Archbishop named Gomez as a “Migration Chairman.” Believe me, I couldn’t/wouldn’t make this stuff up:

        Interestingly enough, Dennis, while the Southern Baptists and a number of other churches have been critical of the Boy Scouts of America for dropping their ban on openly homosexual scouts, the LDS Church has come out in support of it and the Catholic Church has said that they are “evaluating” the impact on the Church. The Southern Baptists are indicating that they will no longer support Scout troops and some Baptist Churches have already told Scout troops meeting at their facilities that they’ll have to find some other place to meet.

    This serious issue of our country being invaded by millions of uneducated criminals (YES! That’s what they are!!) who have no desire to acclimate, has conveniently morphed into a do-gooder’s cause, to which I ask, “Who will do good for my children and theirs?

    I no longer recognize the Mormon Church which I joined 50 years ago.

    • Kimball says:

      I fully understand, Hagar. Sad for the church, sad for us.

    • eubykdisop says:

      You’re not alone. I’m not LDS but I left my church too because it abandoned Christian teachings and the Bible and went full bore Liberal left. So it’s certainly not JUST the LDS Church.
