TED CRUZ LAUNCHES NATIONAL PETITION AGAINST GANG OF EIGHT'S BILL
Brietbart ^ | 06/20/13 | Tony Lee

Posted on 06/20/2013 4:33:35 PM PDT by RobertClark

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a national petition on Thursday to stop the Senate Gang of Eight's amnesty bill and send Washington a "strong signal" of the grassroots opposition to the bill.

Cruz urged supporters to share the petition with friends and to "act now--without delay--to help us defeat amnesty and stand for legal immigration!"

I signed his petition.

He’s right, we can make a difference.

Don’t stop calling/emailing/or going to their offices.

Yep getting an early jump on the 2018 Senatorial primary season it seems. Or maybe he’s squirreling some cash back for a Presidential run.

I forwarded the following email to my useless senator (the OTHER one from Texas!):
Dear Sen.,

Today, on the floor of the U.S. Senate, you argued in favor of passing the new immigration bill on “humanitarian” grounds because of the people who died trying to illegally enter this country.

Senator, let me ask you a question: Suppose a thief wants to break into your house and steal goods that you and your wife have worked to purchase. And, in the process of breaking into the second story of your house, the thief falls and breaks his leg? Are you obligated to help that thief complete his task by taking the possessions he was after, putting them in a pillowcase and helping him back to his car?

That, Senator, in esence is what this immigration bill does and you should be aware of the fact that most Texans and most Americans oppose its passage. I strongly encourage you to re-consider your position and oppose the immigration bill.

Thank you for your consideration.

Correct, fundraising ploy. The “petition” says nothing ASAICT. I’ve just about had it with the entire lot of ‘em.

Went to the Reagan Library not long ago. Walked out saying to myself, “We’re surrounded by political dwarves.” And they aren’t humorous at all.

Petition?

McCain, Schumer and Graham have been trying to get this passed for a decade. They are too close. They think they can smell success. They are not going to pay any attention to anything from the grassroots.

There are ten Senator’s offices I have called every day this week plus McConnell. Only office I have been able to get thru every day is Ted Cruz’s. Reached Cornyn only once. All the others either did not answer, got the “please call back during regular business hours recording - even though I called every day from 9 to 10 a.m. - or their mail boxes were full. Also tried sending a fax to five of the people on the undecided list which was posted on another FR link - never did get their fax to answer. They DO NOT want to hear from us.

Trolls are out? Good people question a campaign ploy after finding out that there’s no petition to sign, and now they are relegated to troll status?

A person gets deceived when they click on a hot link expecting to find a bona fide petition to sign so they call it what it is, a campaign ploy, and the best you got is to post an image of a cute little troll doll?

The site to sign the petition is a bit confusing. Off to the right there is a box that says SIGN TO DEMAND REAL BORDER SECURITY. It asks only your name, email and zip code.

I clicked the hot link only to find a collection of my name and e-mail address. Where’s the beef? WHERE’S THE TOUTED PETITION? I’m calling all of you out for piling on the person that dared express the sentiment that the attractive words used to lure one in to click on the link didn’t take oneself to a petition as inferred. That’s DISINGENUOUS, and frankly unnecessary... what has happened to my beloved Free Republic?

Oh, I-went-for-a-cheap-shot? And an attempt by you to tar and feather me by comparing my commentary to a/the marxist (small m used intentionally) in the White House. The piling on is telling and juvenile. You might very well have three of your four fingers pointing right back at you?

The petition has nothing to do with defeating the bill outright or against the massive legalization and citizenship. It only says that border security in the bill should be better.

And yes, it is very likely an address-gathering fundraising ploy. Rand Paul has done something similar.

I went there... gave my name, current zip, and an email address... hit next and it didn’t say thanks for your support and that my Aname was added to a petition... it said “send us money”.

llegal aliens invade the USA for Welfare and Wages.

1.) End the Federal ‘Anchor Baby Law.’

2.) End the Federal ‘Hospital Emergency Room No Payment Law’ (EMTALA).

3.) End ANY other Welfare to Aliens.

4.) Fine US employers $1,000 per day per alien employee hired.

5.) Spend NO money on “securing the border.” It is 2,000 miles of desert.

6.) Spend money on Chainlink/ Concertina wire prisons in the desert for repeat offenders who have invaded our Country.

7.) Transfer Border Invasion Enforcement to the US Coast Guard and the US National Guard in each State, and controlled by each States’ Governor.

8.) Repeal all State and Federal Laws that prohibit voter officials and Police from requesting proof of US Citizenship for any reason what so ever.

I try and sign this so-called "petition" and it just leads me to a fundraising page. SPAM! Disappointed in Cruz.

I would stick with NumbersUSA's and Stand With Arizona's existing petitions with big numbers and no fundraising gimmicks.
