Take action now: Take the Stop Amnesty Challenge.

It's up to you to block Obama's amnesty.
 

Ask this stimulus bill question (illegal aliens taking jobs from U.S. citizens)

Please go to a public appearance of a political leader who supports the stimulus plan and ask them the following question. Feel free to modify it to match your speaking style, and if you can find a quicker way to state this question please leave it in comments:

Version 1:

Obama says that the stimulus bill will save or create millions of jobs. Whatever the exact number, there will still be millions of unemployed Americans, right? Unfortunately, in the final bill, provisions to prevent illegal aliens from receiving jobs were stripped out. That means that every stimulus job that's taken by an illegal alien is one that was in effect taken away from a U.S. citizen. What would you say to a U.S. citizen who can't get a stimulus job because it was taken from them by an illegal alien?

Version 2:

Obama says that the stimulus bill will save or create about 4 million jobs. Whatever the exact number, there will still be millions of unemployed Americans, right? Unfortunately, in the final bill, provisions to prevent illegal aliens from receiving jobs were stripped out. Now let's say that illegal aliens get even just 1% of those jobs, or 40,000 or so of the total amount of jobs covered under the bill. Doesn't each of those 40,000 or so jobs represent a job that a U.S. citizen could have gotten, but didn't? What would you say to a U.S. citizen who can't get a stimulus job because it was taken by an illegal alien?

Version 3:

Do you agree that any job created by the stimulus bill that's taken by an illegal alien is one that was taken away from a U.S. citizen? To help you [NOTE: point at the politician] understand what I'm getting at, the stimulus bill will only create a finite number of jobs. And, the number of people who want those jobs will be greater than the number of jobs that are available. What that boils down to is that every stimulus job that goes to an illegal alien represents a job that was taken away from a U.S. citizen. What would you say to a U.S. citizen who can't get a stimulus job because it was taken by an illegal alien?

(If you use exact numbers, try to make sure that your question isn't about those exact numbers by using weasel words like "4 million or so". Otherwise, the person asked the question will try to deflect the question by responding to that instead. The Obama statement that it would "create or save" 4 million jobs was active as of January 10, and might have changed since: link)

with the enemy of freedom and laws inside the white house what did you think was going to happen? soon the real Obama will come out and when that happens people will do nothing but hope for the best isn't that what jews did in 1933? the so called stimulus deal is about helping his people and part of this evil deal is to help the stategic dismantling of the USA And replacement of its people with others in fact all others. but understand one fact isn't this what our white boys have been going for over 40 years? just look at the drug war and the wars hot and cold just open your eyes and you will see the evil behind the political and race scene. no point in buying guns for the reallly stupid population just buy food, most of you will be needed that in the coming years, until some monkey takes it from you. listen to savage nation.

Yup, Reid and Pelosi (who I thought are supposed to support working class Americans) stripped E-Verify from the spending scheme. The Heritage Foundation & CIS say that without E-Verify 300,000 jobs will go to illegals.

Yes: the power of incumbency and culture of corruption.

The incoherency and inability to string together simple sentences is fascinating.

Watch for an amnesty push....Of course they ignored the public saying NO to their stimulus Bill and will ignore them on amnesty as well. The battle will be much worse for prevention of amnesty and then the real war will start. The media continues to spout Obamas talking points and ignore the will of the people. NBC and it's President are now on the government team and Stephanopoulos is also on board. He should be fired but all media is now firmly inline with the new propoganda effort.

Great post, thought provoking comments,Thank you all. I'd like to point out that when the weather improves you can count on the crowd size to improve as well, quite dramatically if Fullertons' 15,000 is any indication. Especially around April 15th. But there are so many issues that people are starting to realize, they are going to get out there for. Look at who these people are. They aren't your run of the mill protester. There are more of us than you think.
