OFIR - Oregonians for Immigration Reform| advocating environmentally sustainable immigration | illegal alien immigrant crime

Welcome to Oregonians for Immigration Reform - OFIR!

Oregonians for Immigration Reform works to stop illegal immigration as well as reduce legal immigration to a more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable level here in Oregon and across the United States. Does OFIR view immigration as an attack on American sovereignty? Not at all! Immigration built the foundation and wove the fabric of our sovereign nation. Yet OFIR is concerned about the utter disregard for existing United States immigration laws, illegal trafficking of people and drugs across the US border, and the environmental, economic, and societal consequences of mass immigration into the United States. A sovereign American nation has both the right and the responsibility to limit immigration and control its borders.

Stop Oregon Sanctuaries!

Since 1987, Oregon Revised Statute 181A.820 has kept Oregon's state and local law-enforcement agencies from offering their fullest cooperation to the U.S. authorities charged with identifying and detaining illegal aliens. In doing so, the law has effectively rendered Oregon a "sanctuary" state for foreigners here illegally.

Activists affiliated with Oregonians for Immigration Reform have filed Initiative Petition 22 with the Oregon Secretary of State's Elections Division. IP 22's goal: to place a measure onto the November 2018 statewide ballot that will give Oregonians the chance to repeal ORS 181A.820. To reach the ballot, the signatures of 88,184 registered Oregon voters are needed by July 2018.

Protect Oregon Drivers Licenses!

Oregonians for Immigration Reform and Protect Oregon Driver Licenses (PODL) filed a citizen's veto referendum to overturn Senate Bill 833 - the 2013 law passed by the Oregon Legislature which would grant driver cards to illegal aliens. Assigned as Ballot Measure 88, the issue was placed on the November 2014 ballot.

OFIR and PODL are proud to announce that we were successful in overturning the law by nearly a 2 to 1 margin. Over 66% of Oregonians voted NO on Ballot Measure 88. It was defeated in 35 of 36 Oregon counties. Supporters of the bill outspent us 11 to 1, yet Oregon voters overwhelmingly insisted on sending the bill into the archives of bad Legislation.
