If you attend, please email van@numbersusa.com a brief description of your interaction and the immigration-related discussion. Or, call OFIR at 503.435.0141 and tell us about it.
 
Talking Points for your consideration:
 
You were responsible for shutting down the federal government, not Republicans. And for what? To amnesty illegal aliens. You're playing a destructive political game. You knew negotiations were ongoing. Do not vote for another shutdown.
 
You are pushing a legalization for so-called Dreamers but don't care what caused these young people to be in the country illegally in the first place. Their parents brought them while seeking to work here illegally. We'll be in this situation again unless we make it hard for employers to hire unlawful workers. That's why I want you to support mandatory E-Verify workplace eligibility checks for all employers. Don't subject another generation of young people to the same situation.
 
Our immigration system should help American workers get a decent pay raise and have a higher standard of living. That's why Sen. Tom Cotton introduced the RAISE Act, which would cut legal immigration from about one million per year to 500,000. I strongly support the bill because it will reduce job competition, including for the 50 million working-age Americans not in the workforce. Please co-sponsor the RAISE Act. Stand with American workers, not anti-American business owners who want more job competition to reduce wages.
 
The Visa Lottery must be terminated because it threatens our national security, as evidenced by the October 31 New York City terrorist attack by lottery winner Sayfullo Saipov. The program is fraud-ridden, because it has low application standards, and draws from nations that are state sponsors of terror or are known to harbor terrorist organizations. This dangerous combination made the program the subject of numerous congressional oversight hearings and a target for repeal. Please support a repeal of the Visa Lottery.
 
A biometric entry/exit system was a key recommendation of the 9/11 Commission after it learned that several of the hijackers had overstayed their visas. But despite Congressional approval and funding, the last two administrations failed to implement this essential system for tracking and removing visa over-stayers. There is no excuse for further delays in these dangerous times, so I want you to help get this done.

You won't want to miss this meeting!  OFIR has invited two NW United States Regional immigration officers to join us.

Not long ago Governor Brown sent out a very misleading Press Release filled with misinformation about Immigration and Customs Enforcement actions in our state.

So, just exactly what can agents do - and not do, while enforcing immigration laws in Oregon?

Melissa Nitsch, the Community Relations Officer for ICE covering Washington, Oregon, and Alaska and Quinn Andrus, Community Relations Officer for U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services will join us ...prepared to separate the real facts from the fear fanning fiction about ICE operating in Oregon.

This is a must attend event.  Invite a friend to join you Saturday, Sept. 30 from 2 – 4pm at the Best Western Mill Creek Inn, across from Costco in Salem

If you have questions, please call 503.435.0141
