Juan Mann`s New Year`s Resolutions for 2004


Despite the election year, the Bush
Administration appears to be

lurching blindly
toward another illegal alien

amnesty
—possibly based on the

disastrous
“guest-worker”

Arizona Amnesty plan
.

So more than ever before, the

patriotic American citizen
will be the country`s
last line of defense in 2004.

Crucial voter initiatives against
illegal alien entitlements in

California
(search: “save187”) and Arizona (search:
“pan2004”) will soon take center stage. But whether
these campaigns gain enough signatures, volunteers and
money depends on all of us.

Yes, that means you, my dear
VDARE.COM reader!

Citizen activism is the only hope
for stopping the illegal alien

amnesty
juggernaut, and bringing the issue of real
immigration reform into the November elections. So now
is the time to

get involved.

VDARE.COM`s own columnist

Joe Guzzardi
already

predicted
the coming immigration reform gunfight of
2004, especially in his home state of California.
Guzzardi wrote:

“We`re
smoking mad in California, that`s for sure. And we`re
fighting back where it matters the most — with our
voices and our votes . . . California is the immigration
enthusiasts` weak point — because we can take issues
directly to the people through the initiative process.”

Meanwhile, at the Virginia-based

NumbersUSA,
executive director

Roy Beck
stressed how essential

citizen activism
already has been in holding the
federal government in check.

In a recent e-mail to supporters
entitled Year-End Report
on Immigration Reform Progress,”

Beck wrote:

“The
only power that kept U.S.

borders intact
, that protected 

American workers
from having to totally compete one
on one with every  worker in the world for wage and
conditions, that protected our communities  and

open spaces
from having millions upon millions of
additional  residents over the next few years at a
minimum, WAS TENS OF  THOUSANDS OF CITIZENS, EACH TAKING
INDIVIDUAL ACTIONS ONE BY ONE AND CUMULATIVELY FORCING

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT
TO TIP-TOE
THROUGH THE TULIPS THAT THEY OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE
STOMPED WITH NARY A THOUGHT!”

So instead of making predictions on
what`s going to happen with the immigration mess in
2004, I offer a shopping list of New Year`s resolutions
for patriotic citizen activists:

  • Support the Arizona Taxpayer
    Citizen Protection Act—Protect Arizona Now (PAN). This
    initiative petition (# I-03-2004) amends the Arizona
    statutes to require proof of citizenship when
    registering to vote, proof of identity when voting,
    and proof of eligibility for non-federally mandated

    public benefits
    . Search “pan2004” for more
    information.

  • Support the California Save Our
    State initiative—the

    “son of Prop. 187.”
     This initiative amends the
    California state constitution to require public
    benefit providers to verify eligibility under federal
    law, mandatory reporting of immigration law
    violations, verification of lawful presence and
    identity for

    driver`s license
    applications, and prohibits the
    acceptance of identification not issued by a state or
    federal jurisdiction. Search “save187” for more
    information.


  • Report
    illegal aliens and criminal alien
    residents—Help solve the illegal immigration problem
    one alien at a time.

  • Report

    tax-cheating employers
    who hire illegal
    aliens—Call the

    IRS hotline
    at 800-829-0433. You might even be
    rewarded for your efforts if you file an
    “application for reward for original information,”

    Form 211 (PDF)—available
    at the IRS

    website
    , or by calling 800-829-3676.

  • Be a patriot—Join and support the
    real immigration reform movement. Find a worthy group
    listed in the VDARE.COM

    links
    page, on Terry Anderson`s

    mega-links,
    or through the “act now”
    suggestions at

    DeportAliens.com.

  • And just for fun,

    don`t shop
    on January 12, 2004, while President
    Bush is in Mexico.

The time to start getting involved
is yesterday.
