URGENT ACTION - Congress to QUADRUPLE low-skilled foreign worker visas!@$%
FLIMEN Note: The text below was derived from a NumbersUSA Urgent Alert. It seems just so wrong, so absurd, so out-of-touch, so arrogant, so (add your expletive) for Congress to increase any type of visas BY FOUR TIMES in the current situation. Like USA needs more unskilled workers?%^&. Please follow the action request.
How could such a provision even be snuck in? See more information which states:
- The new provision does not increase the current H-2B visa cap of 66,000 but would exclude any worker who has already received an H-2B visa in the last three years.
- The omnibus insert was sponsored by Sen. Barabara Mikulski (D-Md.) and Senator Thom Tillis (R-N.C.).
Omnibus Spending Bill to QUADRUPLE low-skilled foreign worker visas -- Call Leadership and the Appropriators and Demand they remove it!
The 2,009-page spending bill that was released in the middle of the night will QUADRUPLE the number of H-2B low-skilled, non-agricultural foreign worker visas in 2016. The AFL-CIO has called the program "deeply harmful" to American workers, while a recent op-ed in The Hill said the increase will "undercut the wages of low-skilled U.S. workers".
So while Congressional Leaders think they have a deal in place and can go home for the holidays, millions of struggling Americans will be forced to continue to worry about their economic futures in to the new year.
As our top activists, we're asking you to call as many Congressional Leaders and Appropriators today as possible. Leadership thought they could sneak these increases into the spending bill, and no one would notice. We must prove them wrong!
Call Leadership today!
HERE'S A LIST OF CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS AND THE CHIEF APPROPRIATORS:
HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN -- (888) 995-2106
HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY -- (888) 995-5306
HOUSE MAJORITY WHIP STEVE SCALISE -- (888) 995-5431
HOUSE GOP CONFERENCE CHAIR MCMORRIS RODGERS -- (888) 995-8349
HOUSE APPROPS. CHAIR HAL ROGERS -- (202) 225-4601
SEN. MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL -- (888) 995-2026
SEN. MAJORITY WHIP JOHN CORNYN -- (888) 995-2065
SENATE GOP CONFERENCE CHAIR JOHN THUNE -- (877) 753-8801
SEN. APPROPS. CHAIR THAD COCHRAN -- (202) 224-5054
Please call as many of the Members listed above as possible. Demand that they remove the provision from the spending bill that would quadruple H-2B visas in 2016. The provision is located on page 701. Tell them that you can't understand why they would increase foreign worker visas when more than 15 million Americans can't find a full-time job and the workforce participation rate is at its lowest rate in decades.

Palm Beach Sanctuary County Squashes Obamasty Resolution 5-2
Thanks to the many FLIMEN activists and to the many Palm Beach County Tea Party activists who showed up in force to kill Mayor Vana's Resolution supporting President Obama's unconstitutional Executive Orders DACA and DAPA. Had outraged citizens not attended the Commission no doubt would have passed the resolution so kudos to all of the angry citizens!!!
Commissioners FOR the motion to table indefinitely:
Vice Mayor Mary Lou Berger
Commissioners AGAINST the motion to table indefinitely:
Mayor Shelley Vana
The motion to table was made by Commissioner Abrams and seconded by Commissioner Valeche.
Consider thanking those FOR, especially Commissioners Abrams and Valeche. You might want to remember these votes for future elections.
FLIMEN presented an alternative resolution.
At the beginning of the discussion on the resolution there was discussion as to whether or not Palm Beach County was a sanctuary county. The County Attorney did not know. Mayor Vana did not know. The Mayor asked Brad who was there as the Mayor's immigration expert and he said "no" twice. Commissioner Abrams was the only one who knew the definition of Sanctuary and he competently had the correct answer "yes."
A formal sanctuary policy is a written policy enacted a local government body in the form of a resolution, ordinance, or administrative action--general or special orders, or departmental policies.
Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw on August 6, 2014 released to the press a statement that Palm Beach County Sheriff Office (PBSO, phone 561- 688-3000) would no longer abide by federal detainer requests to turn over criminal aliens to ICE. PBSO stated "it was no longer obligated to honor the detainers." That is false. Sheriff Bradshaw must be using the same "experts" as Mayor Shelly Vana.
THEREFORE LET IT BE CLEAR PALM BEACH COUNTY IS A SANCTUARY COUNTY.

Immigration Anarchy Rises Dramatically in Florida.
The number of Sanctuary Cities and Counties in Florida has exploded
from 5 to 12 based on information from DHS.
Immigration Anarchy demonstrates the massive dysfunction of our government and the further decline of our society. When cities and counties flagrantly violate federal immigration law with impunity yet the government punishes bakers for not making a homosexual-topped wedding cake every citizen must fight for the Rule of Law with fervor and unrelenting persistence!!

Oppose PBC Commission Resolution in Support of President Obama's Executive AMNESTY
OLD HISTORICALINFO HERE. RESOLUTION WAS KILLED PER ABOVE.
FLIMEN is supporting the Palm Beach County (PBC) Tea Party in opposition to adoption of a PBC Board of County Commissioners' resolution supporting Obama's unconstitutional Executive Amnesties DACA and DAPA.
Please make the Commission aware of your positions – either by attending the meeting and speaking out, emailing the Commission or by making your friends and organizations aware.
It doesn't matter where you live, the PBC Commission needs to hear from outraged US citizens.
- Email: BCC-AllCommissioners@pbcgov.org
- Call the Commissioners at the phone numbers below.
- Speak at the commission meeting by filling out comment form before 5:00 PM to speak on item 4A-2.
- Attend the commission meeting:
Tuesday, November 3 at 5pm
301 N Olive 6th Fl, West Palm Beach
- The Commission should be supporting the Rule of Law, not lawlessness.
- Non-enforcement of immigration laws has many huge negative impacts especially to lower wage minority workers.
- Prior to his Executive Amnesty Order Obama stated 22 times he did not have the power to enact the DACA and DAPA Executive orders.
- Both of Obama's Executive Amnesties are being litigated and there is no final resolution at this time. Along with others FLIMEN believes Obama's DACA and DACA initiatives are unconstitutional for the following reasons:
- Obama's Prosecutorial Discretion is preemptive, cannot declare discretion before an incident occurs
- Obama's Prosecutorial Discretion must be individually, not en masse
- Obama's Prosecutorial Discretion must not give a Work Authorization benefit, must only judge on whether to prosecute
On the agenda for the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners' infrequent evening meeting on 11/3/15 is agenda item 4A-2, requested by the Commissioners, in support of President Obama's Executive Order on Immigration. You can see the Agenda Item in it’s entirety here and the entire agenda here.

Join the Disney Boycott and Protest
FLIMEN is supporting a boycott and protest of Disney. Disney forced their US workers to train foreign H-1B workers and then fired the US workers. The boycott and protest is being organized by BoycottDisneyNow.com.
PLEASE PARTICIPATE IN OUR THREE ACTION ITEMS TO THE STOP H-1B VISA SCAM
AND PROTECT AMERICAN WORKERS:
Jack Oliver, President of Floridians for a Sustainable Population (www.flsuspop.org
) has announced his organization is leading a coalition of grassroots groups and activists who are calling for a nationwide boycott (www.boycottdisneynow.com
) and demonstrations to protest the Disney Corporation's decision to fire hundreds of its long-time employees last January and replace them with newly hired foreign workers.
"American Workers Matter
," said Oliver, "and the only way to send that message to Disney's management is for American consumers to boycott its amusement parks, movies, and entertainment products across the board." In addition to the boycott, the coalition announced plans to hold protest demonstrations October 17th at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
"Disney is hardly the only corporation eager to save a few bucks by throwing American working families under the bus, while at the same time reporting billions of dollars in corporate profits," continued Oliver. "But we are targeting Disney because it is an iconic American corporation, and because we believe its corporate bosses are betraying the legacy and tarnishing the name of Walt Disney, a great American patriot, who would never stand for this outrageous action if he were still alive," he added.
"We urge people to go to our website: www.boycottdisneynow.com
and join the boycott, and also sign up to join one of our Disney protest demonstrations in Anaheim, or Orlando on Oct. 17," said Oliver.
Jack Oliver can be reached at (561) 225-1152; or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Vanishing Open Spaces in Florida
A Sprawl Study by NumbersUSA.com
The Florida of orchards, grasslands, marshes, pine scrub and open beaches continues to disappear at a rapid rate under the bulldozer’s blade of constant new development. How much of that is related to consumption and development patterns and how much of it is related to the increase in the number of Florida residents is the focus of this study.
Dispelled - Republicans Need AMNESTY and Hispanics to Win Presidency
"But here is the real solution. Romney lost because he did not appeal to the millions of Americans who have seen their standard of living decline over the past decades. They're nervous about the future. When Romney did not address their concerns, they either voted for Obama or didn't vote at all. If the next Republican candidate can address their concerns effectively, he will win. And, amazingly enough, he'll win a lot more Hispanic votes in the process. A lot from other groups, too."
On July 13, 2014 the Center for Immigration Studies (www.cis.org) released the report Who Got the Jobs in Florida? Florida ranked high in growth 2000-2014, but most employment gains went to immigrants (legal and illegal).
Here are a few highlights of the report:
- Since the jobs recovery began in 2010, 64 percent of net employment growth among the state's working-age population has gone to immigrants.
- If the employment rate of natives (16 to 65) in the first quarter of 2014 were what it was in 2000, 768,000 more natives would be working.
- While agriculture gets a lot of attention in the state, it employs a tiny share of immigrant workers — less than 1 percent.
- The supply of potential workers in Florida is enormous: half a million native-born college graduates were not working in the first quarter of 2014, as were one million with some college and 1.4 million with no more than a high school education.
- The labor force participation of black, Hispanic, young, and less-educated workers in Florida show the biggest declines.

Do you remember the two cornerstones of Rick Scott’s 2010 campaign? Illegal Immigration and Jobs.
Rick Scott promised to get tough on illegal aliens by enacting an Arizona type immigration law that included mandatory E-Verify for all new hires in Florida. He also pledged to create 700,000 new jobs above projected normal job growth. This was the 7-7-7 plan.
Florida now ranks third in the country on the number of illegal aliens. So make no mistake, these dire job numbers would have looked much better for Florida citizens had Governor Scott kept his promise to enact mandatory E-Verify.
America is now facing a crisis at the border with the current surge of unaccompanied minors’ illegally entering the country to be reunited with family members that previously entered the country illegally. Many of these children will be resettling in Florida unless we take action now.
Please go to www.PetitionRickScott.com where you can sign a petition to Governor Scott and see other actions you can take to stop illegal immigration, thus restoring jobs to American workers.
Second Billboard Blasts Senator Rubio for his "Amnesty
First" Immigration Bill
Floridians for Immigration Enforcement (http://www.flimen.org)
announced it has put up a second
billboard near the Jaguars' Stadium in Jacksonville
that blasts Senator Marco Rubio's (R-FL) Senate Bill
S.744, the so-called "Gang of Eight" Immigration
bill, that would give amnesty to more than 11 million
illegal immigrants before any attempt is made to
secure the U.S. border against another wave of
"Not only did Senator Marco Rubio break his solemn
pledge to our organization and Florida Tea Party
leaders that he would oppose amnesty and a path to
citizenship for illegal immigrants when he ran for
Senate, but he abandoned his promise to make sure
the border is secure before considering what to do
with illegal immigrants already here," said
Floridians for Immigration Enforcement Legislative
Director Jack Oliver.
The billboard's text which also can be viewed at
The Rubio-Obama Immigration Plan
Amnesty: "Right Away"
Border Control: "Someday"
Tell Sen. Rubio NO WAY (904) 398-8586
The billboard location is East-bound Arlington
Expressway near the Fairgrounds in Jacksonville,
"Besides breaking his own promises, Senator Rubio
should explain why he trusts the Obama
Administration to carry out any promises it makes
to control the border after it gets the amnesty it
wants, in light of Benghazi and the numerous
falsehoods and cover-ups involved in the IRS,
Associated Press and Fox News scandals," said
"S.744 will only trigger a new wave of
"Senator Rubio's 'Amnesty First - Border Control
Someday' approach in S.744 will only trigger a new
wave of illegal immigration, and should be rejected
by anyone who believes that America has the same
right to control its borders that every nation on
earth does," added Oliver.

Billboard on I-75 in Ocala Attacks Senator Marco
'Amnesty Man' Rubio
Immigration Enforcement (FLIMEN) has erected a
billboard on I-75 in Ocala attacking Senator Marco
Rubio (R-FL) for sponsoring S.744, the so-called "Gang
of Eight" Immigration bill, that would
million foreign workers over the next ten years.
"When 20 million
American citizens and legal workers are unemployed or
desperately trying to find full time jobs it is both
callous and irresponsible for Florida Senator Marco to
sponsor an immigration bill that will flood the labor
market with 33 million foreign workers over the next
ten years," said Floridians for Immigration Enforcement
Legislative Director Jack Oliver.
"The 33 million
additional green cards is a very conservative estimate
of the future impact on the US labor market," added
Oliver. "It doesn't even include temporary work visas
which according to an analysis by U.S. Senator Jeff
Sessions (R-AL) will add another 25 million temporary
skilled and unskilled work visas over the next ten
years. This bill is Armageddon for the American
workforce," continued Oliver. "I predict that no
politician who votes for the Senate immigration bill
will ever be elected to higher office."
backing for this mass amnesty also is a complete
betrayal of the solemn promise he made to me, other
members of our board, and several Tea Party leaders
that he would never support amnesty when he met with us
privately face to face in 2009," said Oliver.
Citizens are urged
to call Sen. Rubio's Orlando office (407) 254-2573 and
tell him AMERICANS need those jobs.
There are numerous
reports that Senator Rubio's Washington DC office does
not answer the phone line and the voice mail is always

Republican Party surrendered to Obama on
OUR COUNTRY IS ON THE PRECIPICE OF A HUGE MISTAKE BASED ON LIES.
WE ARE ON THE EDGE OF KILLING THE DREAMS OF
OUR CHILDREN. AMNESTY CAN BE STOPPED
AGAIN BUT ONLY IF YOU TAKE ACTION TO OPPOSE
The way the Republican Party is attempting
to "rebrand" is essentially surrendering to
Obama on immigration and abandoning the
calls for AMNESTY
"The Republican National
Committee endorsed amnesty on Monday
through its report entitled "Growth &
Opportunity" that analyzes the 2012
election results. In the report, the Party
concluded that it needs to do a better job
reaching out to minorities and young
people, and comprehensive immigration
reform that includes an amnesty for 11
million illegal aliens is one way to do
FLIMEN Note: The following article by
William Gheen of ALIPAC is a raw and
brutally truthful analysis of pro-AMNESTY
Republicans. Mr. Gheen correctly labels
FOX News as pro-AMNESTY which invalidates
the FOX claim of "Fair and Balanced." Mr.
Gheen also correctly rejects the Rand/Rubio
claim that amnestied illegal aliens won't
be voting. It is clear that the
Obama/Rubio Doomsday AMNESTY will destroy
not only the Republican Party but the
United States of America.
Rubio and Rand's Trick To Lead Conservatives To Their Own Doom
"If you turn on Fox News, you won't find
me there anymore even though I was a
regular guest up until shortly after
Murdoch announced his support for
Bloomberg's amnesty plans in early 2012.
In fact, you will almost never spot a any
guest on Fox that opposes Comprehensive
Immigration Reform and all the major
hosts like Sean Hannity and Bill
"The dangerous poison Rubio and Rand are
selling to the conservative base is the
false belief that illegal immigrants can
be somehow given legal presence without
ever becoming voters in US elections."
"In other words, even if Republicans do
some leading on immigration reform, and
even if they provide votes, the political
credit - or a large share of it - will
accrue to Obama. There's not much in
government the public doesn't attribute
to the president. If immigration reform
is passed, then he - and not his
Republican partners - will receive most
of the praise."
"If the AFL-CIO boss and their Democrat
cronies gets their way, not only would
their be a "pathway to citizenship,"
illegals would get free ObamaCare, guest
workers would be paid more than American
workers-and guest workers would be able
to bring their families along to the U.S.
IF YOU CARE ABOUT USA
AND OUR CHILDREN'S FUTURE call Florida
Senator Marco Rubio and ask him to withdraw
from his AMNESTY bill, tell him how you and

long-term impacts of AMNESTY to US citizens and their

the long history of non-enforcement of US immigration
2) Incentivize millions
upon millions more to violate our borders and work
without paying taxes, etc., (https://www.numbersusa.com/content/nusablog/cafarop/february-21-2013/immigration-proposals-could-double-annual-flows.html)
3) Allow legal immigrants
(Permanent Residents) after a period of time to
petition to bring in their mother, father, brothers,
sisters, adult children or infant children which is
estimated as high as 55 million often impoverished and
illiterate persons over the next two decades to
overwhelm our already overwhelmed social benefit
4) Continue to drain our
nearly bankrupt governments (http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2013/05/the-fiscal-cost-of-unlawful-immigrants-and-amnesty%20to-the-us-taxpayer).
pro-AMNESTY forces outspend pro-enforcement forces by
about 300-1. Unions want more union members to
replenish their diminishing ranks. The Catholic Church
wants a bigger flock. The Democratic Party wants more
Democratic voters. Pro-foreign worker Republicans want
more exploitable and cheaper workers. AND AMERICAN

While the bills have yet to be filed and would never be

not of the same scope but a real danger. It is
long overdue that the Cuban Adjustment Act be

E-VERIFY MUST BE ENACTED NATIONWIDE!
E-Verify is about protecting the jobs of legal
workers, so there are really only two sides to
this issue. Elected officials support the
hiring of illegal aliens or the hiring of fellow
citizens. Many Floridians and their families are
hurting. They have lost their jobs, they have
lost their health insurance, and they have lost
their homes. At the end of the day, if
elected officials are unwilling to protect our
jobs, then maybe it's time that those elected
officials lost their jobs.
Jack Oliver, FLIMEN Legislative Director
1. E-Verify is a highly
successful federal program where employers are
required to confirm the legal status of new hires.
2. E-Verify effectively
addresses the main enabler of illegal immigration --
The Job Magnet.
3. E-Verify has been
successfully utilized in about 17 states, many
municipalities and more than 238,000 employers who
4. E-Verify is highly accurate
5. E-Verify is totally
non-discriminatory as all new hires are verified.
6. E-Verify applies the
pro-enforcement principal of 'Attrition by
Enforcement' which means illegal aliens will
self-deport when they cannot hold jobs here. It is
also a deterrent to potential illegal entrants
7. E-Verify covers only new
hires which allows employers to phase into legality
without drastic upheaval to the employer or industry.
8. E-Verify has improved
significantly and will continue to be improved.
9. E-Verify is a modern on-line
extension of the I-9 system that has, since 1986,
required employers to verify employment eligibility.
10. The legality of E-Verify
was affirmed when the US Supreme Court on May 26,
2011 ruled in favor of the Arizona E-Verify law:
