Support Black American Leadership Alliance's DC March for Jobs - Stop Amnesty

Join Black Leaders fed up with Obama's amnesty schemes and March on DC!

Visit DCMarchforJobs.com for more info

 

The Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) has organized the march and rally along with community leaders of all races from around the country. Americans are coming together in Washington, DC to protect the quality of life and economic opportunities for those citizens among us who need it the most.

 

There will be a bus departing Tampa for DC on Sunday, July 14 and returning July 15.  The busride is free, but you do have to pay for the cost of the hotel room in DC (1 night on July 14).

YOU MUST RSVP BY COB WED, JUNE 26 IF YOU WANT A SPOT ON THE BUS!

 

The Black American Leadership Alliance and other participants will call upon Congress to:

• Recognize the devastating effects illegal immigration and amnesty have on low-skilled workers, particularly those in minority communities;

• Enforce current immigration laws, and;

• Fulfill their duties to the millions of Americans struggling to find work by opposing amnesty and supporting policies to reduce overall levels of legal and illegal immigration, and to protect American jobs from irresponsible immigration legislation.

Confirmed Speakers:

Col Allen West

CL Bryant

KCarl Smith

Kevin Jackson (who spoke at our Tampa 912 meeting last year)

Awaiting invite replies from:
Sen. Ted Cruz
Rep. Steve King
Dr. Alveda King

Why the March to preserve American jobs for American workers?

We believe it is high time that members of Congress act to preserve economic opportunity for American workers – and pass immigration legislation that protects and supports the nearly 22 million American citizens who do not have jobs, or cannot find adequate employment to support their families.

Economists report that labor participation in the U.S. is at its lowest rate in over 30 years. Yet, despite these sluggish economic conditions, some in Congress have put forth immigration proposals to increase legal immigration levels by 50% and provide amnesty to over 11 million people who have entered the country illegally. We stand against these proposals, as they will result in adding millions more to the U.S. labor force, putting millions of American citizens out of work.

Over 22 million Americans are currently out of work or underemployed. All wage sectors, including low-skilled and high-skilled jobs are at risk from this legislation as big business asserts the need for more cheap laborers to do those mythical jobs “Americans won’t do.” Research continues to debunk this myth. As the Economic Policy Institute’s recent report reveals, there is not a talent shortage, but a jobs shortage.

If passed, the Gang of Eight’s proposed immigration bill will be costly for all Americans, but will harm black American workers more than any other group. Mass immigration and amnesty puts those poorest Americans from all walks of life out of work and suppresses wages, causing them to compete with aliens willing to work in poorer working conditions for cheaper pay.

When 22 million Americans are either out of work or unemployed, now is no time to further over-saturate the labor force with increased immigration levels and amnesty. If Congress doesn’t stop this irresponsible legislation, the United States will continue to see more and more Americans of all races out of jobs and on the streets.

To help stop Congress’ amnesty push, join the Black American Leadership Alliance for our march on Washington on Monday, July 15, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. at Freedom Plaza, as we demand that our leaders reject amnesty, enforce immigration laws as written, and support policies that put black U.S. citizens back to work.

    These rooms have two beds in them, so if someone would like to split the cost of the room, I am all in favor of it.
