AMNESTY RED ALERT! Call Now Oppose 'Bad' Dream Act.

Washington is busy again! Thank you AZ. Jake Flake.
Ironic that the DREAM act is being hidden in National Defense HR 1585!

ALIPAC Activists!


We told you several months ago that the intended purpose of "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" aka AMNESTY was designed to override all of the immigration enforcement efforts by over 40 states and hundreds of cities and towns. Now we have confirmation on that.


Amnesty Revived in Pieces Plan to override States

Amnesty Again! amnesty on the installment plan The BAD Dream Act

We need ALL OF YOU on the phones ASAP

The Dream Act should be dubbed the "Bad Dream Act" or the "Nightmare Act" by our movement.

The Dream Act would provide AMNESTY to any illegal alien of any age that claims they came to the US before they were 16 years old.

This Act would also give In-State Tuition to illegal alien college students.

ALIPAC has helped defeat In-State tuition for illegals in three or more states with our message....

"This legislation will replace American students in the limited seats in College at taxpayer expense."


If you were going to take a day off work to fight amnesty, early this week would be the time to do it.

Call your Senator first and then call all of the others.


"I want Senator ______ to vote against Senator DFw AMNESTY RED ALERT! Call Now.ems urbin's Amendment (number SA 2237) to attach the "Bad" Dream Act to the National Defense Authorization Act HR 1585! The Bad Dream Act is AMNESTY! How dare Senator Durbin try to replace American kids in the limited seats in College and make us taxpayers foot most of the costs!"

Also, point out that this Amendment is "NOT GERMAINE" to the National Defense Bill. The Senate and Congress have a rule that amendments should be Germain or relevant to the bill being discussed. Obviously, Amnesty and in-state tuition for illegal aliens has NOTHING TO DO WITH DEFENSE SPENDING! This Amendment violates the rules of the Senate.

You also need to add

"I also want Senator ______ to vote against any increases in VISA's! No increases in visas, till illegal immigration in America is stopped or reversed"

Some Senators are trying to attach H-1b and H-2b Visa increases to this bill too.

Click Here to Call, Fax, and Email Senators NOW!

Also, you should call the sponsors of this 'Bad Dream Act' and let them have an earfull.

Sponsors are...

DURBIN (for himself, Mr. Hagel, Mr. Lugar, Mr. Leahy, Mr. Obama, Mr. Lieberman, Mrs. Feinstein, Mr. Kerry, Mr. Feingold, Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Bayh, Mr. Menendez, Mrs. Murray, Mrs. Boxer, Ms. Cantwell, Mr. Salazar, and Mr. Dodd

"I am calling to tell Senator ______ how disappointed I am they are sponsoring Durbin's Bad Dream Act Amendment. How dare they try to give Amnesty to illegal aliens and replace American students in the limited seats in college at taxpayer expense! I will remember this during the elections!"


Many of ALIPAC's allied organizations, (NumbersUFw AMNESTY RED ALERT! Call Now.ems SA, CAPS, NC Listen, etc..) are gearing up for one hell of a fight this week in the Senate.

We must rally the nation so spread the word! Pile on Talk Radio Shows and mention ALIPAC to lead other Americans to our aid.

Dangerous gun control bill in US Senate

HR 2640 is the most dangerous far-reaching assault on your Second Amendment Rights since the Democrats gained control of Congress!

Congress is authorizing $750 million to make a substantial expansion to the instant background check database -- the very system that is violating our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. This new money will be used to collect and store your personal information including your medical records.

HR 2640 will allow shrinks (psychologists and psychiatrists) and bureaucrats to decide who can own and possess firearms. Currently under the National Instant Check System (NICS) a person becomes a prohibited person, regarding firearms possession, when that person is "adjudicated a mental defective," "by a Court." HR 2640 removes your due process rights, and greatly expands the definition of a "prohibited person" to anyone who, in the opinion of any shrink or government bureaucrat, could possibly be a danger to oneself or another. For example, under HR 2640 you won't be able to call witnesses on your behalf; in fact, there won't even be a hearing.

Many of our great service men and women would be prohibited from owning firearms, if, when returning from serving our country, they are labeled "dangerous" because of a visit to doctor for stress. We all know that our great service men and women see and experience situations that may continue to give them nightmares. Are these events good reasons to permanently ban firearms ownership for these individuals? They just finished serving our country and now they may be barred from even owning the firearms they used to defend this great nation. This was tried by the Clinton administration; the names of 83,000 veterans were sent to NICS to become prohibited persons. Under HR 2640 these 83,000 veterans would be banned as well as thousands more.

HR 2640 also expands the list of "prohibited persons" by allowing shrinks to decide who is a "danger". We already know that many "professionals" in the psychiatric field believe that a firearm in the hands of any American is dangerous and therefore no person should have them. You can imagine the utter chaos this legislation will create!

Any medical "professional" could also make a similar determination. We already know that many pediatricians believe that any household with firearms is "dangerous," even if they are properly stored. Senior citizens who have trouble balancing their checkbooks could become prohibited persons under a finding of "disability" or "incapacity.

Closet anti-gun politicians love legislation such as this. So far, politicians have hidden behind voice votes on this bill. HR 2640 is a Trojan horse. It sounds justified on the outside with promises of keeping mental defectives from having firearms, but a closer look at the details reveals a huge expansion in those who will become a prohibited person; an expansion that could potentially include most Americans.

Washington insiders think gun owners will be fooled by their veiled attempts to ban firearm ownership. They'll go to great lengths to silence the grassroots, and to absolve themselves of responsibility if it does pass (and becomes yet another tool to the gun banners).

Just witness the latest issue of the American Rifleman. They admit that gun owners are mad, and have been contacting them.

And then they attempt to justify their support of this bill by saying "Trust us".

Well, we don't trust them. And we certainly don't trust Cong. Carolyn McCarthy. Nor do we trust Sen. Patrick Leahy,

Take a look at what supporters of this bill are saying about it:

This bill has already passed the House of Representatives with a sneaky voice vote and is expected to be voted on in the Senate soon! That is why we need you to contact your Senators today. This will be our only chance to stop this erosion of your rights!

P.S. Together we can stop the Washington insiders who want to eliminate private firearms ownership in the U.S.

What you can do:

1. Send the pre-written message (below) to both of your US Senators. Click here to e-mail your U.S. Senators.

2. Make an online donation to NAGR to help us fight this gun control monster.



Dear Senator,

Please don't allow gun control to pass on your watch. Gun owners don't want to expand the "Instant Check" (NICS), we want to repeal it. It is simply wrong to penalize US Citizens by eliminating due process and assuming they are guilty until proven innocent. I encourage you to stand against the anti-gun Leahy bill, the Senate version of HR 2640, which the House passed when leadership snuck it through . Anti-gun zealots relentlessly push to prohibit more citizens from exercising their Second Amendment right. Your fight against the Leahy bill will prove that you are committed to the Second Amendment.

HR 2640: Consider the source

Recently the NRA  has both denied and defended their support for HR2640, the McCarthy gun control bill that would disarm many in America -- including many of our veterans. 
Read more about this bill (sponsored by Democrat Patrick Leahy in the Senate) at:
The following are quotes from other sources on this bill.  That any of these rabid anti-gun members members of Congress support this bill should give cause for pause, but with all of them backing it gun owners should be quite leery.
In a deal brokered by former NRA-board member Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) and blessed by the National Rifle Association, a bill introduced earlier this year by gun control advocate Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) to improve the NICS was modified at the last minute and passed by the House with much fanfare and little outside analysis.
--Josh Sugarmann, Mental Health Gun Bill Has Hidden Problems, The Huffington Post, July 26, 2007

With the NRA on board, the bill, which fixes flaws in the national gun background check system that allowed the Virginia Tech shooter to buy guns despite his mental health problems, has a good chance of becoming the first major gun control law in more than a decade.
-- NRA, Democrats Team Up To Pass Gun Bill ,, June 13, 2007

"We ll work with anyone, if you protect the rights of law-abiding people under the second amendment and you target people that shouldn't have guns," NRA chief Wayne LaPierre told CBS News Correspondent Sharyl Atkisson.
-- NRA, Democrats Team Up To Pass Gun Bill ,, June 13, 2007

"When the NRA and I agree on legislation, you know that it's going to get through, become law and do some good," says Schumer.
-- NRA, Democrats Team Up To Pass Gun Bill ,, June 13, 2007

(The Politico) On the day President Bush is set to receive a report on April s deadly Virginia Tech shooting, Congress took steps to pass the first piece of federal gun control legislation in 13 years.
--Patrick O'Connor, Schumer Predicts Smooth Senate Sailing For Gun Bill, The Politico, June 13, 2007

"I came to Congress in 1997 in the wake of my own personal tragedy," she said. "Today&we are one step closer to reducing the needless deaths from gun violence." (Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.))
--Patrick O'Connor, Schumer Predicts Smooth Senate Sailing For Gun Bill, The Politico, June 13, 2007

Don't faint, but the National Rifle Association and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence have joined forces behind a bill regulating the sale of firearms.
-- Gun reform with NRA blessing, The Denver Post, June 17, 2007

The NRA is the nation's largest gun-rights group. But its support for the new bill actually reflects the NRA's long-standing belief that existing gun laws should be enforced before new ones are written. That's exactly what the McCarthy/ Smith/Dingell bill would do.
-- Gun reform with NRA blessing, The Denver Post, June 17, 2007

Also pending in Congress is a Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2007, geared to require criminal-background checks for all firearm transactions at events where guns change hands.
This has drawn criticism from groups such as the National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Action, which said the measure "masquerades as reform imposing bureaucratic restrictions aimed at shutting down gun shows without fixing real problems." The NRA, however, has supported some of the proposed federal changes.
--Anna M. Tinsley, Gun control back as national issue, The Seattle Times, August 16, 2007

The difference is that the NRA endorsed the background check improvements, boosting its chances of becoming the first major national gun control law in more than a decade.
--Andrew Taylor of Associated Press, NRA Challenges Gun-Control Democrats,, June 27, 2007

The House voted Wednesday to fix flaws in the national gun background check system that allowed the Virginia Tech shooter to buy guns despite his mental health problems.
The legislation, passed by voice vote, was endorsed by the National Rifle Association, boosting its chances of becoming the first major gun control law in more than a decade.
--Jim Abrams, Associated Press, House Tempers Background Checks for Guns,, June 14, 2007

The NRA worked closely with Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., a gun rights proponent and senior House member, in crafting the new bill. The NRA insisted it was not gun control legislation because it does nothing to restrict legal rights to buy guns.
--Jim Abrams, Associated Press, House Tempers Background Checks for Guns,, June 14, 2007

Senior Democrats have reached agreement with the National Rifle Association on what could be the first federal gun-control legislation since 1994, a measure to significantly strengthen the national system that checks the backgrounds of gun buyers.
--Jonathan Weisman, Democrats, NRA Reach Deal on Background-Check Bill, Washington Post, Sunday, June 10, 2007; Page A02

By contrast, this agreement is a marriage of convenience for both sides. Democratic leaders are eager to show that they can respond legislatively to the Virginia Tech rampage, a feat that GOP leaders would not muster after the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado. Meanwhile, the NRA was motivated to show it would not stand in the way of a bill that would not harm law-abiding gun buyers.
--Jonathan Weisman, Democrats, NRA Reach Deal on Background-Check Bill, Washington Post, Sunday, June 10, 2007; Page A02

Now in her fifth term, McCarthy can see the light. Spurred by the massacre of 32 people by a gunman at Virginia Tech in April -- and in a rare collaboration with the National Rifle Association -- the House passed legislation that would provide money for states to collect and maintain records on the mentally ill, with penalties if states don't comply.
--Lois Romano, A Long-Sought Advance for a Gun-Control Bid Born of Sorrow , The Washington Post, Jun 14, 2007, A.25

McCarthy said the bill in essence enforces a 1968 gun-control measure that prohibits the sale of firearms to those adjudicated as mentally ill. She gives major credit to Rep. John D. Dingell (D-Mich.), a former NRA board member, for negotiating with the organization, because she was a bit wary.
