Raleigh, NC, USA (September 15, 2015) -- Contact: William Gheen | (866) 703-0864 | WilliamG@alipac.us
In a surprising response to rumors that HB 328 sponsor Harry Warren is telling NC lawmakers that he has the votes in place to pass his "licenses for illegal aliens" bill and that a plan is in place to conduct a "low profile" vote before the 2015 legislative sessions ends, ALIPAC is changing position to now call for Speaker Tim Moore to allow a vote!
While remaining fervently opposed to HB 328 and any legislation that provides taxpayer benefits to illegals such as licenses, tuition breaks, and welfare, ALIPAC feels that now is the perfect time for the small group of GOP lawmakers to cast votes with the Democrat allies. This means that now both supporters and opponents are calling for a vote on the bill!
"Illegal immigration is the top issue in America right now and there is a negative coattail effect in place for Republicans like Jeb Bush and NC Rep. Harry Warren due to their support for legislation that illegal aliens and their employers like the NC Farm Bureau want," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC.
"We want Speaker Tim Moore to bring HB 328 to the floor immediately so we can get every Republican lawmaker who supports licenses for illegals on the record with an official vote. Since scientific polling data and the recent public referendum defeat for such licenses in Oregon show us public opposition ranges from 64-83%, we feel GOP lawmakers dumb enough to push the Yea button on HB 328 in the run up to the 2016 primaries will be committing political suicide. So our message to Rep. Harry Warren and his GOP lawmakers that plan to use Democrat votes to give licenses to illegals is 'Make our day'!"
ALIPAC and other NC based organizations have been able to identify 11 GOP lawmakers supporting HB 328 by analyzing videos from committee votes on the bill. That list of names was used to file a NC Republican Party resolution to censure Republican Representatives Harry Warren, Brian Brown, Jeff Collins, Jonathan Jordan, Nelson Dollar, Larry Yarborough, Paul Stam, Charles Jeter, Bob Steinberg, Susan Martin, and Jay Adams for violating the NC GOP platform by voting for drivers licenses/permits for immigrants here unlawfully.
Also, NC GOP and ALIPAC activists are searching for Republican primary challengers for these lawmakers who are hoping to have a sneaky vote on HB 328 before they leave session in a few days or weeks.
While ALIPAC is changing our position to ask that Speaker Moore now bring the bill up for a vote, the organization's full opposition to HB 328 and licenses for illegals will intensify in the hopes of either defeating the bill now and shutting it down for years, or by achieving the goal of providing NC voters with the full list of elected Republicans in the NC House that agree with Democrats on supporting the bill.
ALIPAC believes that conducting a vote on HB 328 at this time would maximize chances the bill is defeated and maximize public backlash while simultaneously providing GOP voters with a full list of which Republicans in the NC House are disloyal to the public and the GOP Party platform.
Chances are high such a vote could even make licenses for illegal immigrants a topic of debate in the Presidential Elections of 2015-2016!
