Yesterday was Day #1 of “S.T.O.P. AMNESTY in 4 DAYS!” to counter the Pro-Amnesty “March for America” in Washington D.C. taking place this Sunday, March 21, 2010. Thousands of our Local Power Team members visited Local District Offices with this letter and these talking points. I’ve had the pleasure of coordinating more than 200 of these meetings and rallying people across America.

I’ve received updates from our activists that I’ll be sharing here. We have more than 7,000 NumbersUSA Members ready to tell their Representatives, “Stop Amnesty!” Please email me at Jenny@NumbersUSA.com if you’ve visited an office and have details or pictures to share!

Mitchell and pressured his staff. "What I REALLY want to know is - is he committed to mandatory use of E-Verify?  Will he co-sponsor any of the 5 major immigration bills that I put in my letter?  WILL he join the - Reclaim Americans Job Caucus?" Thank you, Maurna!
