·       Led-by-Arizonas-National-Committeeman Bruce Ash RNC-rejects-McCain: passes-own-Immigration-Plan   The 168 member Republican National Committee overwhelmingly supported a resolution sponsored by Arizona’s National Committeeman Bruce Ash that rejects an easy “path to citizenship” for those current residents who entered the country illegally while calling for major reforms in immigration policy.
When asked if he had discussed his plan with Senator McCain, Ash responded by stating “he didn’t discuss his Gang of Eight plan with me or any others in the Arizona Party so I saw no reason to discuss my plan with him”.

WHEREAS, legal immigration is beneficial to America and far exceeds immigration to any other country in the world; and

WHEREAS, a majority of Americans have consistently stated in polls and demonstrated in elections over the past decade they want border security and immigration reform; and

WHEREAS, in an age of global terrorism, drug cartels, human trafficking, and criminal gangs, the presence of millions of unidentified persons in our country poses a grave national security risk to the safety and sovereignty of the United States, and

WHEREAS, the 2012 Platform of the Republican Party recognizes the important economic and cultural contributions that legal immigrants continue to make to our nation and that illegal immigration discredits legal immigration, undermines the sovereignty of the United States and the rule of law and reduces the safety of the citizens. The best deterrent to illegal immigration is a well-functioning program for legal immigration, which we do not have; and

WHEREAS, Americans recognize that for many of those seeking entry in our country, the lack of respect for the rule of law in their country of origin has meant economic exploitation and political oppression; and

WHEREAS, Americans continue to support the mandatory employer use of the S.A.V.E. program prior to the granting of any State or Federal government entitlements or IRS refunds, and we insist upon enforcement in workplace through the E- verify system so that jobs are made available only to legal workers; and

WHEREAS, a majority of Americans support legal immigration and oppose any form of amnesty that would propose a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens; and

WHEREAS, America's current immigration system is premised upon obsolete public policy, outdated technology and should be replaced with a merit system utilizing the newest technology that focuses on the needs of United States employers and matches the economic and cultural attributes that each immigrant possesses to those needs; now therefore be it

RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee calls upon both Democrat and Republican members of Congress and the President to immediately authorize and complete construction of the double fence along our southern border that was approved in 2006 and is still not completed and sufficient law enforcement or military personnel to patrol; and create an effective means of enforcement for legal visitors who have not followed the terms of their entry into the country; and step up the penalty for illegally entering the United States from misdemeanor to felony; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee calls upon the President and Congress to implement immigration reform during the 2013 session based upon a merit system that emphasizes the economic contribution of each working immigrant can add to our nation; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee calls upon the President and Congress to create a new class of work permit that allows illegal immigrants who were brought into our country as minor children, and who have not violated any other laws of the U.S. to come forward and register and be allowed to remain and work in the U. S. This new class of legal worker permit holders will not result in an application for citizenship or to petition citizenship for family members. The work permit will require renewal every five (5) years and will require proof of employment or attendance in school during that period; and, be it finally committee calls in the President and Congress to create a new work permit

RESOLVED, that the Republican National program that will allow foreign nationals who are currently n the country and have not violated any other laws of the U.S. to come forward and register and be allowed to remain and work n the U.S. The work permit will not result in application for citizenship nor any family members entering the  U.S. and will require renewal every two years upon proof of continuous employment with no more than (2) months per two (2) year period unemployed or convicted of a crime.

·       AZ Delegation: During your campaigns you reached out to us – proclaiming the precinct committeemen were the most important members of the party. Are you avoiding us? Have you forgotten us?  Are we no longer important – until your next election? We won’t forget!!!  What Would the PCs Like To Ask Your AZ Congressman At A Townhall.  Send questions:
·      Questions Received For Our Arizona Delegation:
ü  Congressman Trent Franks seems to have a problem using the word ‘Illegal’ when addressing this issue and he also isn't holding Town Hall Meetings to give those he's supposed to represent an opportunity to address this with him publicly.  Or is this just his way of letting all of us know he's moved into the side of legal status along with the others in the Progressive Wing of the GOP, hope not.
ü  Regarding illegal aliens, dictionaries and most of us who are not politicians, lobbyist or special interest groups define amnesty as any action resulting in anything other than repatriation of the illegal foreign invaders. do you agree with that definition? this is a yes or no question.
ü  I understand why democrats want amnesty, 10's of millions of newly amnestied/chain migrating low skilled uneducated democrat voters, enough to make a permanent democrat voting majority in the country, jackpot for them. but for the rest of us other than the politicians whose coffers get filled by the lobbyist and special interest groups, why would we want to amnesty and import more poverty, crime, unemployment, unskilled and uneducated foreigners when we have too much of our own?
ü  AMNESTY - BOTH senators campaigned on securing the BORDER; not amnesty. Both SPONSORED amnesty - they should be recalled - false promises. Unimpressed by ALL GOP LEADERSHIP (lack thereof)...only ones FIGHTING for the citizens are Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
·       Pizza Prior To Hearing: There Will Be Free Pizza With Congressman Matt Salmon before the Aug 22 Congressional hearing in Mesa.  Join Salmon for pizza at 2 pm at the Queens Pizzeria, 125 W Main St Mesa, where he will address a “Arizona Coalition for Water, Energy and Jobs’” preceding the Field Hearing on the Navajo Generating Station.  After Salmon speaks the group will walk to the 3:30 pm hearing at the Virginia G Piper Repertory Theater, 1 E Main St., Mesa, AZ 85211 for the Congressional Field Hearing.  RSVP to the “Arizona Coalition for Water, Energy and Jobs” event:    480-353-8532.
