I received an interesting email about what my congressman Joe Baca is cooking up in Congress, but despite how scary his pending legislation may be we will be stuck with him unless he’s dead like former Congressman Brown or caught with an underage boy.
Perhaps if we stopped having theocratic candidates running against him we might have luck beating Congressman Baca.
Let’s talk about the P.R.O.U.D. ACT – or H. R. 2681, Congressman Baca introduced this bill 06/03/09. This act can be called the "People Resolved to Obtain an Understanding of Democracy Act."
This bill would amend the Immigration and Naturalization Act to provide for the naturalization of certain graduates of U.S. High Schools who are under 25 years of age on the date of application for naturalization.
Basically, if you are and illegal aliens and you attend high school, and show proof of attending U.S. Schools, for a certain number of years, and you have the good grades, you can bypass the immigration line, and go to the front of the class and AUTOMATICALLY BE ELDIGIBLE FOR CITIZENSHIP !
This bill as already been sent to the Subcommittee on Immigration on August 19, 2009.
Congressman Baca has also released H. R. 3855, this bill is titled, "Every Person Counts Act." This Bill was released on October 20, 2009.
This Bill will greatly help out in New York, and California, which "benefit most from inclusion of non-citizens, including illegal aliens, in the apportionment process." ( fairus.org ) "In his press release, Congressman Baca wasn’t shy about the fact that he wants illegal aliens to skew Congressional apportionment, Presidential elections and Federal funding in favor of his home state of California." Congressman Baca, said that census data "determines the allotment of federal funding and is "absolutely necessary for (determining) Congressional representation and Electoral College figures."
It is important to note that Congressman Baca came out with H. R. 3855, because of Senator David Vitter’s amendment H. R. 2466. Senator Vitter’s amendment would require the Census Bureau to ask questions about citizenship and immigration status as part of the 2010 decennial census.
"If non-citizens are used for purposes of Congressional apportionment, Senator Vitter’s office has said that nine states with lower illegal immigration and lower foreign-born populations would end up losing a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, while four states would pick those seats up." (fairus.org)
Other reasons Congressman Baca does not want illegal aliens counted on the census, include not wanting the American people to know just how many illegal aliens actually reside in our country. If you think it is just twelve million, think again (multiply it by four) ! Second, if everyone sat down and did some math on how much each and every state spends on Education, Incarceration, Medical services, Welfare programs, Social Security benefits, and Housing programs, we could balance every budget in every state, our federal government would not be as broke, Medicare would not be broke, neither would Social Security (Remember waste fraud & abuse) ! How low would our unemployment rate be?
Look at it this way folks, if you owned a business, and you just kept taking on new employees, even if they weren’t qualified, and you gave them benefits, and you really couldn’t afford it, but people just kept coming, and you kept paying them, and giving them benefits, you would go broke, and be out of business! That is what is happening today to our country! It is time to run America like a business, it is time to get it right.
Who does not feel sorry, for people in other country’s who have it worse off than we do? But, let’s use our head’s, if we don’t take care of our own citizen’s first, we will not be in a position to help anyone in the future!
Stand up for your rights as an American Citizen, before your rights are gone! Call Congressman Baca, and tell him No to HR 3855 & HR 2681 ! ‘ IT IS TIME FOR JOE TO GO" 909-885-2222, or 202-225-6161. JOE BACA IS UP FOR RE-ELECTION IN 2010, VOTE HIM OUT!
