Senate Reform Bill Puts American Jobs in Jeopardy

Senate Reform Bill Puts American Jobs in JeopardyNumbersUSA – MUCH MORE THAN AN AMNESTY – The ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration reform bill, if passed, would give out 33 million lifetime work permits to foreign citizens in the first decade.

Please take action today to let your Members of Congress know that YOU know that this bill would give out 33 million lifetime work permits to foreign citizens in the first decade – and perhaps 20 million every decade after that.

33 million – That’s what NumbersUSA analysts came up with after nearly two weeks deciphering the 844-page bill created by the “Senate Gang of Eight” to give amnesty to illegal aliens.


Unbelievably, the 11 million illegal aliens to be given work permits are merely the visible Trojan Horse. As bad as that amnesty is, it is distracting the nation from the fact that inside the bill is something far worse than the amnesty – WORK PERMITS FOR 22 MILLION FOREIGN CITIZENS in addition to the 11 million illegal aliens!

11 million + 22 million = 33 million.

And the 33 million is just the first 10 years. It looks like the bill possibly could dole out around 20 million lifetime work permits every decade after that. We’re still working on those numbers.

33 million is the number that should start every conversation about the “comprehensive immigration reform” bill being rushed through the Senate Judiciary Committee by Chairman Pat Leahy (D-Vermont).

And it’s the number that has to stop this bill before it can do unalterable damage to our country. No matter what your Members of Congress may think about giving an amnesty to 11 million, they can’t possibly justify immediately over the next decade adding 33 million more potential competitors for scarce U.S. jobs.

Our cities, suburbs, towns and rural areas already have 20 million Americans who want a full-time job but can’t find one. It is hard to imagine what adding another 33 million foreign citizens with work permits would look like. But try this:

33 million is like adding an entire new city of New York, PLUS . . .

  • Adding duplicate cities of Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia, Phoenix and San Antonio, PLUS…
  • Adding duplicate cities of San Diego, Dallas, San Jose, Jacksonville and Indianapolis, PLUS…
  • Adding duplicates of Austin, San Francisco, Columbus, Fort Worth, Charlotte, Detroit, El Paso, Memphis and Boston

If Congress passes this bill it would be like re-creating all of the Top 20 cities in the United States, filling them entirely with foreign citizens and giving them lifetime work permits to compete with America’s struggling workers – and in just 10 years time.


“33 million” is the number that should finally shake your Members of Congress out of any infatuation they have with this comprehensive amnesty bill.

Add your voice to the rising chorus… Send free faxes to your Representative and two Senators at:

The authors of this bill have claimed that they never stopped to add up the total number of foreign workers that this bill would add to the job competition in America. They don’t want to know.

They just want to give every Robber Baron corporate lobbist whatever foreign workforce they demand in return for their campaign contributions. Nobody stops to calculate what it all adds up to.

The numbers matter. Especially, these numbers:

  • 33 million (new work permits to foreign citizens over the next decade)
  • 20 million (Americans who can’t find a full-time job)

What kind of state would allow its Senators to vote to do that to the most vulnerable, needy and struggling citizens of their jurisdiction?

Make it clear to your Senators that your state won’t tolerate that kind of callousness.
