Another Rep Ignores the Will of Constituents
1. California Group: Pelosi Will Boost Immigration
A California organization has launched a radio campaign warning that future Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will push for large increases in immigration to the Untied States. Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) is running the radio spots in Los Angeles and San Diego, and plans to launch them in other California markets in 2007.
Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat, has supported Social Security benefits for illegal aliens, as well as in-state tuition and driver’s licenses, according to U.S. Newswire. She has voted against border security, workplace verification programs and immigration-related terrorism safety measures. CAPS President Diana Hull said: “At a time when immigration is overwhelming California, it’s horribly ironic that our state’s own representative is the one pushing for open-ended increases in immigration. Californians want less immigration, not more, and so do most Americans.
“Now that Representative Pelosi is becoming Speaker Pelosi, it’s time for her politics to grow up for the good of this state and the country.” According to U.S. Newswire, current legislative proposals, if approved, could push the U.S. population to 500 million by 2050. CAPS declares on its Web site: “America's open-door policies have left California, and the nation, with a continued and unsustainable flood of immigration. And something must be done.”
