Ten DC Area Groups Join Forces As 'Capital Area Alliance Against Illegal Immigration'

Bookmark and Share

Well this is a positive step in the right direction. 10 grassroots organizations opposed to illegal immigration have joined forces into a much larger organization they have founded called the Capital Area Alliance Against Illegal Immigration. Many of these groups were local to an area, but now have expanded state-wide and region-wide. It only makes sense that they would eventually end up all together.

Now this group will work together to fight sanctuary cities in the Maryland, Virginia and DC Areas. They will also be working towards the elimination of all taxpayer-funded programs, organizations, services, and benefits utilized to encourage and sustain illegal immigration in the Capital region.

This from Judicial Watch

Washington, DC-area taxpayers demand accountability from their elected officials and local law enforcement authorities. Working together, the Alliance will leverage their resources, growing membership and average citizens’ frustration against public officials and policies that provide support for illegal aliens in our region, including:

  • Washington, D.C. - stopping planned day laborer centers funded by taxpayer dollars (one is planned for Northeast Washington), and abolishing the illegal Metropolitan Police Department Policy that prohibits police officers from inquiring about an individual’s immigration status, and restricts police officers from cooperating with federal immigration officials.

  • Maryland – ending the state policy that provides drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens, eliminating taxpayer dollars for day laborer centers and ending funding for free, non-emergency health care centers and services unless proof of citizenship/legal residency is provided.

  • Virginia - ending illegal alien “catch-and-release” policies, overturning the sanctuary policies in Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax, and eliminating taxpayer-funded public benefits for illegal aliens.

"It is a travesty that so much of our Capital-area region is a sanctuary for illegal aliens," said William Buchanan, spokesman for the Alliance from Defend DC. “Local politicians and other leaders should understand that citizens demand safe and secure neighborhoods in which the rule of law prevails. By joining forces, citizens in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia can maximize our effectiveness in seeking political and legal solutions to the illegal immigration crisis.”

The initial groups that have been involved in the formation of Capital Area Alliance against Illegal Immigration include:
American Border Patrol; Defend DC; Help Save Loudoun; Help Save Manassas; Help Save Maryland; Judicial Watch; Maryland Minuteman CDC; Save the Old Dominion; Vienna Citizens’ Coalition; and Virginia Minuteman

American Council for Immigration Reform is an advisory group.

Once again AMNESTY REARS ITS UGLY HEAD. This time attached to a defense bill no less.
Information on chief PUSHERS below written 2004

IN 2004

Two of the Bay Area's best-known lawmakers, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, are fixtures on the list of Congress' richest members.
Paul Pelosi's holdings include a four-story commercial building on Belden Place in San Francisco, a retail and office building on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in San Anselmo and an ownership stake in the Auberge du Soleil resort in Napa Valley valued at $1 million to $5 million. He also has millions of dollars of shares in publicly traded companies such as Microsoft, Amazon. com and AT&T.
The couple estimated their total assets to be worth $25 million to $102 million last year, with liabilities of $6 million to $31 million. Assets are reported in broad ranges on the disclosure forms, making it difficult to determine a lawmaker's exact net worth.
Federal lawmakers are required to file financial disclosure statements under the Ethics in Government Act of 1978. The forms are released each year to give the public a financial portrait of their representatives and help expose any potential conflicts of interest with their or their spouses' business dealings.
Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., who is up for re-election this year, put most of her assets in a blind trust in 2001 after being criticized for owning stock in some of the energy companies she accused of manipulating the market and overcharging consumers during the California energy crisis.
Feinstein also has received scrutiny for husband Richard Blum's extensive business dealings with China and her past votes on trade issues with the country. As a result, her financial disclosure statement -- nearly the size of phone book -- draws clear lines between her assets and those of her husband. Many of her assets are in blind trusts.
