NumbersUSA Ad Asks What Senator Bernie Sanders Is Trading For His Vote Supporting Amnesty For Illegal Aliens
Senator Sanders Supports Senate Immigration Bill Giving 11 Million Illegal Aliens Work Permits, Despite Millions Of Americans Still Looking For Work
BURLINGTON, Vt., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — NumbersUSA Action has launched an online ad blitz across the state of Vermont asking what Senator Bernie Sanders is getting in exchange for selling out on amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens. The ads launched today and will continue until the Senate votes on the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill S. 744 at the end of this week.
“Why in the world would Senator Sanders be willing to give work permits to millions of illegal aliens, making it easier for them to take jobs, when so many Vermonters still can’t find jobs?” asked Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA Action. “Is that really his idea of immigration reform or has he traded something behind the scenes with special interests? The people of Vermont deserve to know before he votes.”
The bill Senator Sanders supports will reward illegal aliens with amnesty work permits and legalization immediately and then promises more enforcement later, if the administration doesn’t decide to waive the enforcement. That’s the same promise made in the 1986 amnesty that has never been honored. In all, the legislation offers 33 million new, lifetime work permits to foreign citizens over the next decade, triple the level of the last decade. Approximately 11 million of the new work permits will go to illegal aliens and 22 million will go to new foreign job seekers. The proposal to bring in millions more foreign workers and reward illegal aliens with work permits comes at a time when 20 million Americans still can’t find full time jobs, even here in Vermont.
