Please contact the Democratic National Committee (DNC) at TOLL FREE 877-336-7200 and/or the Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and tell them to stop funding the below democratic political campaigns in 2014 campaigns because the below Democratic politicians voted alongside the well know bigot Rep. Steve King who has become the anti-immigrant face of the Republican Party.
- Rep. John Barrow D-Ga
- Rep. nick Rahall D-WV
- Rep. mike McIntyre D-NC
The aforementioned will go down in American history as politicians who voted to save their political necks in the “south” instead of standing on the right side of immigration. Their legacy will be one of not continuing the great immigrant story our United States stands for as we try to continue to be that global beacon.
President of SOMOS INDEPENENTS writes:
On June 6, 2013, U.S. Representative Steve King (R-IA) introduced an amendment to the Homeland Security Appropriations Bill, HR 2217, which stops funding for the Department of Homeland Security to process Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) applications and allow prosecutorial discretion to DREAMERS. Unbelievable, three U.S. Democratic Representatives, John Barrow (D-Ga.), Nick Rahall (D-W.V.), and Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) supported and voted for King’s amendment to defund the DACA program. Are some of the Southern leaders in the Democratic Party becoming Dixiecrats like Senator James Strom Thurmond? Here is another fine example of why I went from being a Democrat to being an Independent. We must remember that five much needed Democratic Senators forsaken Hispanics and our community’s children in the last DREAM Act vote, by not supporting the passage of the DREAM Act. Now, we have three Democratic Representatives who have also forsaken our children/DREAMERS, once again. When will the Democratic Party, all stand-up for our immigrant children, including our LGBT immigrant children?
Apparently, the three Democratic Representatives that supported King’s amendment are confused. They say that they support “children and education,” but yet they vote for an amendment that cuts funding to allow our DREAM children to become legally presence DACA recipients.” This is the very reason why there are more Hispanic Democrats that are changing their political affiliation to the Independent Party. The Democratic Party needs to be reminded that they do NOT have the ‘Hispanic Vote’ all locked-up for the up-coming 2016 election and must start act accordingly. Yes, the GOP cannot control their extremists like Cruz, Sessions, Grassley, and King, who are currently helping the GOP to commit political suicide by their xenophobic actions against DREAMERS, CIR, and mixed-status families. But, if the GOP could exorcise the evilness out of their party and welcome Hispanics back into their fold, they could win the Presidency again, remember we voted Bush in.
Please send the DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and tell her to instruct the DNC to stop funding these democratic political campaigns. You can contact her directly here. Or you can contact the DNC here.
Remind the DNC there are approximately 500,000 new registered Latin voters every year (most are of Mexican descent) and we are the fastest growing demographic in the Nation.
Tell the DNC that we expect to see the same fervor they used with regard to the immigration issue as we saw when they were tackling the healthcare debate.
We want them to pull out all stops because we are tired of this decade long immigration debate.
WE ARE SIMPLY TIRED OF THIS ISSUE. We refuse to be political futbols and the political games — and this is precisely why there are rising independent registered voters across our Nation today.
We all know that the immigration system is broken, and we want to see the much legal immigration reform that will economically benefit our Nation and the retiring baby boomers.
Bottom line: New immigrant taxpayers will fund social security and government benefits our elderly needs!
If we don’t see the same passion from the democrats they expressed on health care … we will remember because this issue directly affects the core of our hearts.
We are standing by and hope to see the DNC give a verbal spanking to the 3 Democrats who voted with Steve King’s bigotry. We cannot afford to lose one single Democratic vote on the issue of legal immigration reform that is being discussed this week!
