The Intellectual Power of the Arguments Against Rubio’s Amnesty Bill

The opponents of amnesty are actually reading Rubio’s bill, making the rational arguments against the S. 744 approach and taking those arguments to the public.

Between now and July 10, call your Congressman’s office (Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) and tell them to OPPOSE bringing S. 744, the Obama – Rubio immigration amnesty bill, to the House floor. Tell them you want border security, not amnesty for illegal aliens.
