What is "America First Immigration Reform"?
AFIR is a non-partisan, non-profit, citizens group dedicated to ensuring that immigration laws and policies fulfill the best long-term interests of America.
AFIR vehemently opposes S.744, especially the immediate amnesty for 11-20 million illegal aliens. If amnesty is granted, it will result in a one-party political system, converting America into a third-world country over night.
We oppose an "All in One" Omnibus Bill – similar to S.744 and the ObamaCare monstrosities. Rather, we suport a legislative approach that considers key elements separately:
- Border Security
- Visa tracking system
- Employee verification system (E-Verify)
- Enforcement of current laws
- Empowering state and local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws
Who Are We?
The AFIR grassroots coalition was launched by a group of Massachusetts citizens, many of whom had experience with the federal "Secure Communities" (SC) program which is designed to protect communities by identidfying and deporting illegal alien criminals. Although Governor Deval Patrick aggressively resisted SC, it was implemented ahead of schedule due in large measure to the efforts fo the "SC Team Six" efforts.
AFIR's leaders, project administrators and volunteers are parents, business ownders, teachers, homemakesres, and students – average citizens who share a common sense of urgency about common sense immigration reform.
How Will AFIR Make a Difference?
We are mobilizing a rapidly frowing all-colunteer army of citizens who are willing to "put some skin in the game". In concert with national activist groups, AFIR is encouraging key legislators to creaste immigration laws based on the best long-term interests of America. – to the exclusion of special interests, crony capitalism and political correctness. AFIR members are using a variety of tools to influence the legislative process:
- Telephone – Calling legislators, talk radio shows
- Letter-writing – Letters-to-the-editor, legislators
- Internet – Emailing legislators, on-loine media "comments", Blogs, "seeding"
- Research – Fact checking, investigative
Note: All of the above can be done while in the comfort of your home.
AFIR is fortunate to have the advice and support of nationally recognized authorities. A biographical sketch of reach Council member can be found by clicking the "Advisory Council" tab above.
