Forty-six Senators stopped funding of the government Friday night because they didn't get an eighth amnesty that offers endless chains of extended family migration.

Chain Migration is the top issue here. The 46 Senators wouldn't accept a DACA amnesty and wouldn't vote to fund the government unless every immigrant gets to have Chain Migration of their relatives, and unless all those relatives get Chain Migration of their relatives, and so forth.

Did YOU know there have already been 7 Chain-Migration amnesties? Do your friends and family know?

HERE'S THE AD we just started running across America TO ALERT VOTERS TO THE ISSUE OF THE 7 AMNESTIES:

Most news media and politicians act like the only amnesty ever offered was in 1986.

In fact, Congress has tried over and over again to supposedly fix immigration problems by giving amnesties while continuing Chain Migration and the ability of employers to hire illegal foreign workers.

That is what those 46 Senators want to do again. When they didn't get their way, they used the filibuster Friday night to shut down the government.

PLEASE SHARE THESE VIDEOS that explain to the nation (30 seconds at a time) how Chain-Migration Amnesties work.

Here's the ad we've been running across the country since Christmas:

It is so important that every single Senator and U.S. Representative understands that the majority of Americans want them to oppose any DACA amnesty that continues Chain Migration.

A Pulse Opinion Research poll just before Christmas found that likely voters in this fall's mid-term elections favor ending Chain Migration by a 2-to-1 margin.

Asked if any DACA amnesty should end Chain Migration and limit family migration to spouse and minor children, voters said YES -- again 2-to-1.


You can read all about these in detail at:

1. Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA), 1986: A blanket amnesty for some 2.7 million illegal aliens

2. Section 245(i) Amnesty, 1994: A temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens

3. Section 245(i) Extension Amnesty, 1997: An extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994

4. Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty, 1997: An amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America

5. Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA), 1998: An amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti

6. Late Amnesty, 2000: An amnesty for some illegal aliens who claim they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty, an estimated 400,000 illegal aliens

7. LIFE Act Amnesty, 2000: A reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty, an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens
