On Friday, an Illinois Review article, entitled "Rauner and Illinois GOP leaders to urge Congress to adopt immigration reform," indicated that the GOP gubernatorial nominee will be joining other business people next Tuesday, April 22 to urge Congress to adopt immigration reform as the "politically smart, economically sound, and morally right" thing to do.
Rosanna Pulido, head of the Minuteman Project, along with independent Tea Party groups and other grassroots organizations, will be holding a "Save The American Worker Rally" at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 22 at the corner of Michigan and Van Buren Streets in downtown Chicago.
The rally is being held to protest a gathering of Rauner, Republican politicians, lobbyists, and corporate CEOs pushing amnesty for illegal aliens at the nearby Chicago Club that same afternoon.
It's outrageous and makes no sense that fat-cat Republican millionaires and corporate CEOs are lobbying for amnesty to give work visas to illegal aliens when Chicago-area unemployment is 9 percent and twenty million Americans cannot find a job.
Unconscionable is that Republican legislative leaders State Sen. Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) and State Rep. Jim Durkin (R-Burr Ridge) have indicated their intention to attend the event.
Participants are encouraged to bring an American Flag and a simple sign - for example, "No Legalization" or "Jobs for Americans, Not Illegal Aliens."
For further information or to RSVP, contact Rick Biesada at 773-771-3927 or Rosanna Pulido at 815-401-6711 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants before the border is secured once and for all is unacceptable.
It is wishful thinking by Republicans to believe that once undocumented immigrants, many who hail from south of the border, are made American citizens and can legally vote that they will vote Republican. It is as if the the Republican establishment is comfortable in signing off to the demise of the Republican Party, all for the sake of signing on to cheap labor to please its business community and big donors.
