JBS President John F. McManus reveals the troubling background of illegal immigration in new speaking tour covering nearly 60 venues
APPLETON, WIS.—March 25, 2010—“Stealing the American Dream: How Illegal Immigration Affects You!,” a new John Birch Society speaking tour beginning April 5, reveals how illegal immigration continues to spiral out of control since the last amnesty legislation that promised to stem illegal immigration and how new amnesty legislation will only entice more illegal border crossings.
JBS President John F. McManus will be headlining the nearly 60-venue speaking tour. He writes in The New American “…if current [immigration] laws were enforced, there would be millions of jobs for legal citizens, and all that’s needed for the federal government to adhere faithfully to laws that already exist. Doing so would solve not only the illegal immigration problem but much of the unemployment problem as well.”
McManus claims that illegal immigration continues to present numerous problems for the country. His message stands in sharp contrast to numerous promises that past amnesty programs would solve them. He maintains that new amnesty legislation will only entice more illegal border crossings.
A companion DVD written and narrated by McManus will be available during the presentations. “Constitution Si, Amnesty No!” demonstrates how illegal immigration has not ceased, that its harmful impacts continue to be felt, and how amnesty is not a responsible path to citizenship. “Constitution Si, Amnesty No!” is an update to his 2006 DVD, Immigration Invasion.
“Illegal aliens do themselves and their families a large disservice by choosing to come to this country illegally,” McManus says. “Citizenship is a wonderful privilege. Over the years, millions of legal immigrants have responsibly and respectively attained full citizenship status by learning our language, understanding our governmental system and happily assimilating. Illegal immigrants should not be rewarded for breaking immigration laws.”
