> Action Alert
> (May 5, 2000)
> Tell Judiciary Committee to safeguard American workers and oppose
> illegal alien amnesty during H-1B visa debate next week
> Next Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee will debate legislation
> (H.R. 4227) that would allow for an unlimited number of H-1B foreign
> worker visas for the next three years. Although another H-1B increase
> is unneeded, the bill contains provisions to reduce fraud and safeguard
> American workers from the further wage depression, job loss, and unfair
> job competition.
> FAIR also has learned that several members of the committee may offer
> amendments to the bill that would give amnesty - legal forgiveness - to
> illegal aliens for their lawbreaking and reward them with legal status.
> These amnesty amendments, which Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Sheila
> Jackson-Lee (D-TX) may offer, would reward illegal aliens for their
> crimes and encourage more illegal immigration in the future. (Most of
> the committee Democrats support the amnesty proposals, so the
> Republicans hold the key to preventing the Democrats from attaching them
> to the H-1B bill.)
> Call Judiciary Committee Republicans and ask them to:
> (1) SUPPORT the worker safeguards and anti-fraud provisions in H.R. 4227
> (2) OPPOSE any amendments that would give amnesty to illegal aliens
> Judiciary Committee Republicans:
> Henry Hyde (R-IL), chairman Bill Jenkins (R-TN)
> Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) Asa Hutchinson (R-AR)
> Bill McCollum (R-FL) Ed Pease (R-IN)
> George Gekas (R-PA) Chris Cannon (R-UT)
> Howard Coble (R-NC) Jim Rogan (R-CA)
> Lamar Smith (R-TX) Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
> Elton Gallegly (R-CA) Mary Bono (R-CA)
> Charles Canady (R-FL) Spencer Bachus (R-AL)
> Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) Joe Scarborough (R-FL)
> Steve Chabot (R-OH) David Vitter (R-LA)
> Bob Barr (R-GA)
> If you cannot call all the committee Republicans, call Chairman Hyde
> and members from your state!
> You can reach any member of the Judiciary Committee by calling
> (202) 224-3121 and asking for them by name.
