Opinion: Illegal Aliens Voting in Georgia

In today's world of sound bites and news by the minute, big issues are on our radar screens for a day, maybe two, then we move onto another big outrage (if it takes THAT long!). The post below is a month old, and I'm not even sure if the petition is still active, but I feel this is such a big issue that I wanted to bring it to your attention again. Normally I'd post this in another blog, but it is a campaign update so I opted to keep it in this Republican Candidate blog.

America is under attack from within and without. Every time a decision comes down from "on high" in D.C. or our legal system which undermines a critical part of our foundation we lose just a bit more of our freedom and our country's future as the greatest of the great.

If you haven't signed the petition below, please do so. If you click the link and it's no longer active, ask Karen Handel who to contact to voice your concern. This is bigger than an election. I'm glad Ms. Handel is carrying the torch on this one. - jmd

Obama Justice Department to Allow Illegal Aliens to Vote in Georgia

-- Karen Handel Fights to Stop It--

6/2/09 In a recent and shockingly political move, the Obama Justice Department ordered Georgia to stop the process of verifying that voters in Georgia are indeed U.S. Citizens.

"It is a sad day for the rights of our state and for the integrity of our elections," said Karen. "I remain committed to continuing the fight for citizenship verification. In the coming days, I will consider every option available to the state, including the possibility of legal action."

This morning, Karen posted a petition on her website to tell the Obama Justice Department that Georgians support citizenship verification for voter registration. We've set a goal of collecting 10,000 signatures by next week, so please sign the petition today and ask your friends, neighbors and family members to do the same.

Join Karen Handel's fight to stop illegal aliens from voting by signing the petition now.

The ruling also prevents Georgia from even verifying that a voter actually exists. This opens the door for groups like ACORN to abuse the voter registration system.

Handel said, "The Obama Administration completely disregarded Georgia's obvious and direct interest in preventing non-citizens from voting, instead siding with the ACLU and the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF). Clearly, politics took priority over common sense and good public policy."

Committed to the integrity of our elections, Karen has said "Bring It On" in the face of this challenge. Please stand with her by signing her free and fair elections petition right now.
This is not just a fight in Georgia. If this injustice is not stopped here, it could spread nationwide and open the door to illegal aliens voting in every state. Here are a sampling of some headlines from around the country...

Be careful signing that petition. Notice it is on her campaign web site and not the Secretary of State's web site. By signing the petition they are getting your information for the campaign.

For further information, Austin Scott, who is also running for Georgia's Governor, was the Republican who chaired the committee it got passed through. It is also his language that was inserted into the bill to get it passed.

Such issues as immigration reform and health care should not be left to a thrall of politicians, who many do not have the public interest at heart in these matters? Already we have seen this materialize with the original under-funding of our main enforcement--THE BORDER FENCE CONSTRUCTION and the weakening of the illegal worker identifier--E-VERIFY? As it always happens the status-quo have always have the monetary inroads in influencing our legislators, leaving the general population to be startled by a new law enacted, before they have a chance to respond. It really doesn't matter who is the majority party, the American people remain alienated from secret wheeling and dealing. H.R. bills and amendments are passed in Washington chambers, but the real payout takes place behind closed doors.

This happened when Sen. Harry Reid, Speaker Pelosi used their power to under-fund E-Verify or even kill it? Then in California right now--the SANCTUARY STATE--E-Verify is under a great deal of pressure, not to implement it. Assembly member Paul Fong (Cupertino) would prohibit the state, local governments, and special districts in California from requiring an employer to use the federal "E-Verify" system, even when that employer is a contractor to the government. This is typical at state or federal level, no matter the monetary consequences to the US worker. California residents should immobilize this idiot, and threaten him losing when it's time for re-election. SAY NO to AB 1288

Right now as I comment Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is looking for ways, to undermine the ICE raids and 287(g) the local police enforcement law as seen with Sheriff Joe Ariapo in Maricopa County, Arizona and in other states. I thought the whole idea of Homeland Security, along with our politicians when they took the oath of allegiance, was to protect us all? Even the--NO MATCH LETTER--has been compromised. Everything that really works--is CRUSHED! It's more like they are out to protect the interests of the US Chamber of Commerce, Council of Foreign Relations, ACLU and all the open border, special interest groups, including millions of jobs for illegal immigrants into our country. GOOGLE—about their—REAL—INTENTIONS?

They are already showing their true unpatriotic colors, by trying to force through another disastrous immigration reform law. They keep telling us that the 1986 Simpson/mazzoli bill is broken, yet it was never enforced by any president after Ronald Reagan signed it into law. Nor would good old Sen.Ted Kennedy sponsored it, if it didn't ring true? It's just another trick; to legalize "God Knows" how many illegal aliens will swarm the immigration agencies? How many their really are? Which is anybodies guess, will costs trillions of dollars to support these illiterate and many criminals in the majority of cases.

Not the pariah farmers or the businesses that do the hiring, but the taxpayer will have to foot the bill and the millions more who the lay siege to the border--once the word AMNESTY is heard. Now it's up to the American people to demand--NO MORE AMNESTIES! YES! To a strong E-Verify. GOOGLE--illegal immigration and financial costs, because the public is constantly fed propaganda from the Liberals. Call your state or federal representative today! 202-224-3121 In addition sign the petition to--SAVE-- California, to stop billions of welfare benefits going to illegal immigrant who have overrun the State at TAXPAYER REVOLUTION. See the truth at NUMBERSUSA, Questions: Did you know Judge Candidate Sotomayor was/is member of La Raza (the race)? Question: If a new health care plan passes, does that mean taxpayers will have to keep paying higher taxes to support poor illegal aliens and their families?
