Carrying Capacity Network E-Alert: Border Patrol Report Proves CCN Prediction!
Study confirms amnesty proposal caused spike in Illegal border crossings
Help CCN stop another amnesty-fueled flood of illegals!
Just released documents from the U.S. Border Control prove what CCN predicted a year ago to the month – that just the prospect of legalization would bring about a dramatic increase in the number of illegals scrambling over the border (See Proposed amnesty program fuels surge in illegal immigration, June 2004 CCN Action Alert).
Survey results obtained from the Department of Homeland Security through the Freedom of Information Act show that almost half of the illegal aliens stopped at the border during a three-week period in January, 2004, indicated that they were trying to enter the U.S. because they expected to be able to stay under the Bush Administrations guest-worker proposal.
Some sample responses to the question “Have you heard from your government or other sources (TV/radio) any mention of amnesty by the U.S. Government?”
(1)”Heard a speech by Fox and Bush about Amnesty”
(2)”On TV while in Houston, TX”
(3)”Yes, from the Mexican government”
(4)”Everyone is talking about it”

Whats worse, it appears that the White House attempted to conceal the spike in illegal border crossings, bringing the survey study to an abrupt halt when it became apparent that the results were not going to be favorable to the Administration. Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) is demanding an investigation:
*This is a bombshell. The White House and DHS leadership must immediately address the survey and the way the information request was handled so that the American people know that their government isnt playing politics with national security data. (Tancredo press release, “Border Patrol Study Shows Bush Amnesty Attracts Illegals,” 6/28/05)

Evidence of the amnesty/illegal immigration increase link doesnt come as a shock to CCN supporters, of course we made that connection a year ago!
You heard it here first! Now, were asking you to put us first!
CCN wants to continue to send out the E-mail and Action Alerts that keep our supporters on top of the latest in immigration news. But we need your help!
The truth is, income for small non-profits is notoriously variable. We just cant predict when the donations will come in. And now were heading into summer, a busy time for us but an especially slow time for contributions.
But passage of an amnesty bill this summer (probably disguised as a guest worker plan) IS A REAL THREAT.
Therefore, we urgently need a stable source of income so we can keep up the lobbying pressure. To that end, we have started a new automatic debit donation program (see box below).
We are asking that, if at all possible, you call our office or send us the form below and sign up for our convenient automatic debit donation program today. Let us do all the work!
Of course, one-time donations in any amount are also welcome. Its EASY to donate: Just pick up the phone (1-800-466-4866) and make a credit card donation, or go to our Web site (www.carryingcapacity.org) and make a secure, online donation, or drop a check in the mail to the address below.
CCN has been hard at work on Capitol Hill gathering support for an immigration moratorium. The immigration moratorium and stopping the illegal invasion should be addressed SIMULTANEOUSLY because U.S. resident legal aliens can act as MAGNETS and FACILITATORS for illegal aliens.
We need funds NOW for a new push to defeat amnesty legislation that would bring a flood of additional illegal immigrants across our southern border.
We're up against a powerful and well-funded open borders lobby, and we desperately need the support of concerned citizens like you to help us continue to fight for America.
Carrying Capacity Network and its ASAP coalition allies continue to be leaders in the reductionist cause. You can rest assured that your donation will give you, dollar for dollar, the most bang for your buck of any organization working for immigration reduction and population stabilization.
CCN thanks you for your support. It is deeply appreciated.
