Tea Partiers Against Treason, Also Punks and Brown-Skinned People

With yesterday's release of a report by labor groups finding that immigration enforcement has undermined
workers' rights, and with an immigration reform bill due this week,
anti-immigrant forces are flooding social media sites and organizing
Tea Parties Against Amnesty in preparation for what they hope will be a
huge "backlash wave of anger," at least among white people who still
think Obama was born in Kenya or some other weird foreign place.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) - the people who said
small federal grants to La Raza meant Americans were "being forced to
support a race-based separatist group" - oppose
Comprehensive Amnesty legislation expected to be filed by Friday by
Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), even though they haven't seen it

"Make my day punk!" said William Gheen of ALIPAC.
"Gutierrez and his fellow traitors in Washington know they are running
out of time on this Amnesty legislation and since 78% of Americans
oppose what they are trying to do and many consider it Treason."
