PRO-IMMIGRANT GROUPS TARGET ANTI-IMMIGRANT DEMOCRAT

Rate this Entry
Philadelphia-area Congressman Patrick Murphy (D-PA) is coming under fire for supporting an anti-immigration resolution in the House. America's Voice has launched an online campaign to force Murphy to remove his name from the hardline resolution:

America's Voice announced today the beginning of an online advertising campaign to encourage Americans to contact Congressman Patrick Murphy (D-PA) and demand that he remove his name from controversial immigration resolution H.Res. 1026, the so-called "BRIDGE Resolution."

Murphy has come under fire from religious, progressive, and community leaders for joining with the virulently anti-immigrant Rep. Steve King (R-IA) to co-sponsor the resolution. The BRIDGE Resolution has been dubbed the "Bridge to Nowhere" by those tired of politicians who offer symbolic "get-tough" measures but refuse to roll up their sleeves and pass bipartisan reform legislation that would truly fix our broken immigration system. The resolution calls on Congress to adopt King's vision for immigration policy: tightening immigration enforcement, whatever the cost; keeping our immigration system broken; and hoping that 12 million undocumented immigrants will simply pick up and leave the country.

The Irish Immigration Center in Philadelphia launched the pushback by calling on Murphy to remove his name from the controversial resolution. The call was amplified by Markos Moulitsas, founder of the progressive political blog Daily Kos, who called it a "cheap anti-immigrant shot."

Adam Luna, political director for America's Voice, had this to say: "Congressman Murphy should be leading the fight to pass real comprehensive immigration reform, not following hard-line Members of Congress like Rep. Steve King (R-IA) down this 'Bridge to Nowhere.' We need our leaders in Washington to propose practical solutions to the broken immigration system, not empty resolutions that simply perpetuate the status quo."

    As I have frequently said, Democrats are part of the problem, and Murphy and Blanche Lincoln are the prime examples of this.

    The bottom line is I know that there are pro-immigration Democrats (a lot), and pro-immigration GOP (a few), anti-immigration Democrats (a few) and anti-immigration GOP (a few). I also know liberals who oppose immigration and oppose their kids marrying outside their race, and liberals who wont marry outside their race (know a Obama supporter who does not like IR dating or marriage, though strangely she is pro-immigration), I know a McCain supporter who is for IR (but against his immigration stance). So it takes all kinds.

    "To federally deputize every police officer, empowering them to arrest and detain illegal immigrants wherever they may be. Institute a larger force of ICE agents to audit any business that is under suspicion for using foreign nationals in their labor force. Don't let Sen Harry Reid, Speaker Pelosi, Sen.Chuck Schumer underfund the fence, the US Border Patrol or any immigration enforcement. THIS MIGHT JUST BE A FOREBODING OF AN OUTRAGEOUS EFFORT TO FORCE THROUGH COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM. Get the facts not propaganda at NUMBERSUSA & JUDICIAL WATCH."

    Call your legislators and say that you are willing to PAY HIGHER TAXES to fund the fence!
