All over America, people are voicing their discontent over the passage of the $1.1 trillion dollar Omnibus Spending bill. Today, in a press release by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), the organization announced they have just dropped their endorsement of 28 members of congress. ALIPAC is known as the premier organization most seriously focused on fighting illegal immigration into these United States and all of the terrible problems that go along with it. Most importantly, they seem to lead the good fight without playing partisan politics or backing down to popular personalities.
ALIPAC’s President, William Gheen, released the following statement:
Each lawmaker in DC that voted to fund Obama’s unconstitutional illegal immigrant amnesty orders, Muslim resettlement programs, and Sanctuary cities should be held accountable by American voters and by the family members of our citizens lost to illegal alien and terrorist attacks facilitated by these funds and policies.
We are calling for GOP primary candidates to emerge and challenge each and every one of these Republican traitors and sellouts that serve the Chamber of Commerce and Obama over the interests of American citizens. We hope to help inspire and lead a political revolt where the American electorate finally strikes back and strikes down those using our own tax monies and government to harm our citizens with imported workers, gang members, and terrorists in 2016!
It is refreshing and admirable to see people taking a strong stand in opposition to the very same politicians they once supported because elected officials are absolutely refusing to do what they promised they would do. It is every voter’s duty to hold them accountable instead of giving them a free pass while these lawmakers continue to destroy our country. Earlier this week, well-known Evangelist Franklin Graham announced that because of the Republicans’ passage of this same bill which continues taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, he has left the Republican Party and become an Independent.
The list of the 28 congressional critters that just lost ALIPAC’s endorsement are as follows:
Senators Roy Blunt (R-MO), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), and David Perdue (R-GA). Representatives Robert Aderholt (R-AL), Steve Womack (R-AR), Ander Crenshaw (R-FL), John Mica (R-FL), Gus Billirakis (R-FL), Dennis Ross (R-FL), Tom Rooney (R-FL), Buddy Carter (R-A), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), Tom Price (R-GA), Charles Boustany (R-LA), Greg Harper (R-MS), Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO), Sam Graves (R-MO), Frank Lucas (R-OK), John Culberson (R-TX), Kevin Brady (R-TX), Mac Thornberry (R-TX), Randy Neugebauer (R-TX), Pete Olson (R-TX), Kenny Marchant (R-TX), Michael Burgess (R-TX), Bob Bishop (R-UT), James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC).
Not only is the organization dropping the above politicians from their endorsement but they are going to be added to “The Cantor List”. ALIPAC played a role in defeating Eric Cantor and now maintains a list of candidates that they will be targeting for primary challenges in the future. The 28 latest critters have now been added to that list.
