Friends of ALIPAC,
I am requesting that all ALIPAC volunteers bombard all media and governmental contacts in Texas with the following messages. I have a request in to our Press Director, Jim Palmer, to identify all sources promoting this false information and to send a copy of the following message. Please follow us in on this effort by taking two steps. Craft your own version of these messages and...
1. Contact the Texas media
2. Contact ICE and the TX Governor's office. ---- Attn: Texas media and lawmakers
Over the last week, the uproar over thousands of illegal aliens being released from Texas jails, without being deported is truly a cause for concern. These revelations clearly show that both the state and Federal governments are failing in their basic responsibilities to enforce our existing laws and protect American citizens from criminal illegal aliens. We would like to encourage all Texas lawmakers and members of the media to correct this outrageous situation at once! We also want to ask that you please STOP circulating the misleading information that "immigrants" or foreign born people commit less crimes than American citizens. Nobody is asking if immigrants commit more crimes. This debate is not about law abiding immigrants and it is anti-immigrant to intentionally confuse immigrants with illegal aliens. Yes, legal immigrants commit less crimes because these are people that have both been vetted for criminal backgrounds and have displayed a pattern of law abiding and respectful behavior. Of course legal immigrants commit less crimes. Illegal aliens commit more crimes per capita than American citizens because they have bypassed the required criminal background checks, herald from high crime third world poverty areas that are under gang rule, and displayed a pattern of illegal behavior. About half of our illegal aliens have cut financial deals with drug and human importing violent criminal cartels and gangs to enter the US! The public is not served when the media or lawmakers abuse the truth and legal immigrants by trying to conceal the public safety threat posed by illegal aliens, by masking their crimes with statistics involving LEGAL IMMIGRANTS. The mere fact that one study, which uses the lower crime statistics of our legal immigrants, to mask the higher crime statistics of illegal aliens is being used, illustrates our point that illegal aliens commit more crimes. It is clear that all illegal aliens are criminals, that most engage in a series of crimes including document fraud, identity theft, illegal entry, and taking a job it is illegal for them to have. It is also clear that crimes committed by illegal aliens are almost 100% preventable, as such crimes rarely occurred in the prior history of America, due to a stronger level of immigration enforcement. Any level of crime committed by illegal aliens is unacceptable and to let them out of jail without deportation is an outrage. Please stop circulating misleading information about the crimes of illegal aliens and please stop bashing legal immigrants by comparing them with illegals. We will be sending this notice to every lawmaker and reporter who we see continuing to circulate this misleading propaganda, in an attempt to minimize the political uproar over illegal aliens being released from jail to go back on American streets to rape, steal, and kill. Neither reporters or lawmakers should be making such erroneous statements and you should not be intentionally trying to force the public into anti-immigrant stances through the use of such biased materials. Don't accuse the public of engaging in anti-immigrant behavior, when you are the one engaging in anti-immigrant behavior and trying to confuse the issue between legal immigrants, illegal aliens, and all Hispanics.

---- Governor Rick Perry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement
Can you please provide us with the number of Texas residents that are both legal immigrants and US citizens that have been killed, raped, robbed, or murdered by the illegal aliens you failed to deport from Texas jails? We need some idea of the scale of loss Americans have suffered due to your failures to enforce the existing laws of the United States and to accomplish your most basic governmental responsibilities of protecting our citizens and protecting our states from invasion. A list of names of victims would be even better. Perhaps you could send them some letters from Homeland Security and the Texas Governors office apologizing for the deaths, robberies, and rapes they have suffered due to your intentional non-enforcement and under enforcement of our laws? Many of us were outraged back in 2004, when we learned that Federal and state jails were allowing illegal aliens to walk out of prisons after serving time without deportation. Our outrage has continued to this day as we witness several Americans per day being needlessly killed by your imported illegal aliens. With the American body count exceeding 9/11's toll each year, I guess it is to much to ask that you start doing your jobs? While many Texas lawmakers and members of the liberal media race to claim deporting illegal aliens arrested for crimes is somehow anti-immigrant or anti-Hispanic, we want to know what you are going to do to fix this problem immediately. It is not surprising for us to find this level of governmental malfeasance and immigration control anarchy in the home state of President Bush. We sincerely hope that the victims of the illegal aliens you let back on the streets can sue for damages. We sincerely hope that the people responsible for these massive damages can be fired from their positions and preferably prosecuted for their role as accessories to preventable crimes that occurred due to failures to enforce the laws. It is time for Texas to get with the rest of the nation on immigration enforcement before you find yourselves in conditions rivaling your jealous neighbor called Mexico.
