Americans for Legal Immigration PAC

ALIPAC 2.0 Upgrade Update

Friends of ALIPAC,

Things are taking longer than we expected as we attempt to move the world's largest database of information regarding illegal immigration in America to a new software and hardware home on the Internet.

We believe we are close to completing the leap. Very soon, the old website at will disappear and our new website under construction will appear.

This new website will begin with our Forums or Discussion Groups only. If you have been using ALIPAC's 1.0 discussion groups, your same user id and password should work on the new website forums...

Preparing ALIPAC for Major Transition

Friends of ALIPAC,

We have good news to report. We have found a way to make our main website and operations run much faster, more powerfully, and more efficiently. During our efforts to build ALIPAC 2.0, we also found a way to save us around $5,000 per year on our web server!

We need to prepare you all for the transition which should begin within 72 hours God willing.

All homepage news updates at will cease today. For those of you who read them regularly, please be ready to begin again when we send word that this feature has been restored as part of ALIPAC 2.0

The first steps we take may cause our main website at to be unavailable for a few minutes or hours.

Bentley Reassures Foreign Industries in Wake of Immigration Law

MONTGOMERY — Alabama’s governor on Monday he is worried the state’s tough crackdown on illegal immigration law could hurt the recruitment of foreign industries, so he’s reaching out to foreign executives to let them know that the state welcomes them.

“We are not anti-foreign companies. We are very pro-foreign companies,” Bentley told reporters at the Capitol.

The Republican governor and other supporters of the law have described it as the nation’s toughest. Some parts of it were put on hold by the federal courts, but major provisions took effect in late September, including allowing police to detain motorists who can’t produce a valid driver’s license. Since then, two foreign workers with the Mercedes-Benz and Honda auto assembly plants in Alabama have run into problems.

 On Nov. 16, a German manager with Mercedes-Benz was arrested under the law in Tuscaloosa for not having a driver’s license with him while driving a rental car. The charge was dismissed after the man provided documents in municipal court. Bentley said he learned about the arrest in a call from someone with Mercedes, but he did not say whom.

Last week, a Honda employee from Japan was detained under the law in Leeds. Police at a roadblock found him carrying an international driver’s license and passport, but not an Alabama license or Japanese license as required by the law. Leeds police said they released the man under the immigration law at a magistrate’s recommendation, and a city judge dismissed a charge of driving without a license.

NJ Jury Selection Begins for Trial of Sixth Suspect 2007 Shooting

NEWARK — Powerfully built, with a weather-worn face and menacing scowl, Jose Carranza stood out as the oldest and toughest defendant among the six young men charged in the Newark schoolyard killings.

Twenty-eight at the time of his arrest and now 32, Carranza still stands out, but for a very different reason.

He remains the only defendant never to have given a statement to police about his alleged role in the execution-style slayings that shocked a city and drew national attention. Four college-age friends gathered behind Mount Vernon School on Aug. 4, 2007, listening to music and enjoying the summer night together, were robbed, brutalized and shot in the head. Only one survived.

Bachmann On Immigration: Deport All The Undocumented

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) insisted on Saturday night that as president she would see to it that every undocumented immigrant in the country be deported.

Speaking at a Fox News forum hosted by Mike Huckabee, the Minnesota Republican was fairly broad in describing how she would round up and ship out of the country the 10 to 12 million people living here without documentation. But the implication was that she would empower government agents to do the deed.

"[I]t would be enforcement: Enforcement both at the border but also by the [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] agents. Right now the ICE agents -- those are the agents in the interior of the country who are tasked with enforcing the law -- they are not enforcing them and we also have sanctuary cities now where they don't enforce the laws on deportation. I think that what we simply need to do is to start enforcing the laws which we are not doing and begin the process of deportation," she said.

December 3, 2011
Kristen Smith

Sheriff Paul Babeu has recently been called an “anti-immigration activist” by online site Media Matters for America, but is unthreatened by the comments, stating they couldn’t be further from the truth.

Chris DeRose, leader of the Sheriff’s exploratory committee, spoke with Today Publication’s about the situation.

“The Sheriff’s opposition to illegal immigration is well documented,” said DeRose, “Paul is strongly in support of legal immigration, and an advocate for enforcing the rule of law.”

Sheriff Babeu addressed the issue in his own words on his website There he states that calling out representatives when it comes to the reality of the current state of the boarder and securing does not make him anti-immigration.

1 million illegals could live & work in CA under newly introduced AMNESTY Bi

SACRAMENTO, Calif.-Nearly 1 million undocumented immigrants could live and work openly in California with little or no fear of deportation under an initiative unveiled Friday by a state legislator and others.

Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, a Democrat, is helping to spearhead the measure, called the California Opportunity and Prosperity Act.

The proposal was filed Friday with the state Attorney General's Office, marking a first step toward a drive to collect the 504,760 voter signatures needed to qualify for the ballot.

Fuentes called the measure a "moderate, common-sense approach" necessitated by the federal government's inability to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

"I hope this shows Washington, D.C., that if they fail to act, California will take the lead on this critical issue," Fuentes said in a written statement.

Justice Department sends Congress 1,400 pages on 'Fast and Furious'

December 2, 2011
Cable News Network
Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.

Washington (CNN) -- An intense struggle among several senior Justice Department officials was revealed Friday as internal documents on the gun-running Operation Fast and Furious were released by the department.

About 1,400 pages that had been demanded by Capitol Hill investigators were sent to three key congressional committees in advance of what is expected to be a contentious hearing next Thursday when Attorney General Eric Holder testifies on the subject.

The documents lift the veil on conflicting views among Justice Department executives, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the Arizona U.S. attorney's office over whether and how to respond to allegations made in letters from Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa.

Grassley had demanded to know whether, as whistle-blowers claimed, the ATF was allowing firearms bought by suspected straw purchasers in Arizona to "walk" across the border into Mexico, and into the arms of drug cartels. Grassley had alleged the ATF's surveillance operation lost track of weapons and two of them ended up at the scene where Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered last December.

Calif. Dream Act cost estimates higher than expected

SACRAMENTO (KABC) -- California's "Dream Act" will make it possible for undocumented students to access college financial aid. But a new report estimates that once fully implemented, the Dream Act will cost taxpayers $65 million a year.

Undocumented college students can begin receiving publicly funded financial aid beginning in 2013.

The non-partisan Legislative Analyst now pegs the cost to taxpayers at $65 million per year when fully implemented, nearly three times more than the original low-end estimate. It's difficult to pinpoint an actual number because University of California and California State University tuitions keep rising.

REP. LAMAR SMITH: Obama has a Christmas list that rewards illegals

December 1, 2011
By Rep. Lamar Smith
The Washington Times

This holiday season, it seems President Obama is making a list and checking twice to find out who’s been naughty and nice. But unlike Santa’s list, Mr. Obama’s list is not based on merit. The president and administration officials are determined to make their own list that rewards lawbreakers and penalizes American workers.

There are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living in the United States and about 7 million of them work here illegally. At the same time, 23 million Americans are unemployed or cannot find full-time work. Jobs should be protected for legal workers.But the Obama administration places illegal immigrants ahead of the interests of American workers.

For example, last Christmas the Obama administration and then-Democrat-controlled Congress pushed for the enactment of the Dream Act. This bill is essentially a gift-wrapped jobs package for illegal immigrants. The Dream Act would prevent Americans from getting jobs since millions of illegal immigrants would have become eligible to work legally in the United States.

Elderly mom ran human-smuggling operation for more than 40 yrs

SAN DIEGO — The 85-year-old matriarch of a human-smuggling ring that operated for decades out of a Tijuana hotel was sentenced to 2½ years in federal prison Thursday.

Felicitas Gurrola De Mason sat quietly in the courtroom of U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, her shoulder-length gray hair framing her lined face. During the hearing, she spoke softly through an interpreter.

“I’m remorseful and I ask for forgiveness,” she said, before acknowledging, “I’m very nervous. I can’t speak.”

Her daughter, Hilda Moreno Gurrola, 54, sat to her left, and on her right sat Guadalupe Ojeda Zamora, 50, who is not related to Gurrola but was raised by her in Tijuana.

The trio were the organizers of an unusual smuggling ring that was run by women for years, efficiently shuttling an unknown number of illegal immigrants through the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

Majority of Illegals Have Lived in US for Over a Decade, Report Claims

The majority of the 10.2 million undocumented adult immigrants in the United States have lived in this country for at least 10 years, according to a new report by the Pew Hispanic Center.

The report comes on the heels of a debate among GOP presidential candidates over what to do with the millions of undocumented immigrants who are living in the country, particularly those who have lived here for more than a decade and have planted roots in the United States.

The issue was fueled by GOP presidential candidate and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who proposed letting undocumented immigrants obtain a special kind of legal status that allows them to work here if they have lived in the United States for a long time, have children, have paid taxes and belong to a church.

The Pew report also said that nearly half of the nation’s undocumented parents are parents of minor children.

ALIPAC: good news or the bad news first?

Friends of ALIPAC,

We are sorry to report that for the first time in our organization's history, we have failed to reach our minimum operational expenses for our final funds drive of 2011. All things being equal, this would put us on a final shutdown date of January 1, 2012.

ALIPAC's fund raising difficulties can be explained by four major causes. The first is the horrific political and economic environment we find ourselves in as a nation at this time. The second is that we are having to take issue with different politicians like Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich of whom some of our members have decided to support.

Third, many of our supporters are utterly dismayed by the authoritarian and dictatorial actions of Obama, who has decreed a form of Amnesty for illegal aliens, while secretly using our tax monies to buy military style weapons for the smugglers bringing in the aliens and the drugs. Unfortunately, Obama has demoralized some of our supporters who are throwing their hands up in exhaustion instead of rallying against Obama.

New information emerges about “Dream Act Suicide”

Tue Nov 29, 2011
Erika Flores
Reporter for Action 4 News.

New details are emerging surrounding the death of an 18 year old who committed suicide this weekend.

Joaquin Luna’s death has captured national attention after the family told Action 4 News Joaquin killed himself over immigrant concerns and the Dream Act.

Tuesday, sources close to the investigation reached out to Action 4 News claiming that is simply “not true.”

They said the suicide letters left behind did not mention Luna’s concerns over the Dream Act or his immigration status.

Sources went on to tell Action 4 News Joaquin left behind eight to nine letters each dedicated to people close to him including his sisters, brothers and even his best friend.

Operation Fast & Furious - Holder lashes out over calls for his resignation

Holder lashes out at The Daily Caller while refusing to address growing calls for his resignation

Embattled Attorney General Eric Holder today demanded The Daily Caller stop publishing articles about the growing calls in Congress for his resignation because of the failed Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking program.

As Holder’s aide was escorting the attorney general offstage following his remarks Tuesday afternoon at the White House, a Daily Caller reporter introduced himself and shook Holder’s hand. The reporter asked him for a response to the growing chorus of federal legislators demanding his resignation.

Holder stepped towards the exit, then turned around, stepped back toward the reporter, and sternly said, “You guys need to — you need to stop this. It’s not an organic thing that’s just happening. You guys are behind it.”

Illegal alien sex offender facing his third burglary charge skips bail

A convicted child sex offender and illegal immigrant who was charged with breaking into an Elgin home in June where a 13-year-old girl hid in the basement has skipped bail, according to police.

Salvador Sarabia, 28, has served time for two burglaries, drug-related charges and criminal sexual abuse of a minor and has been deported twice. He had been free after posting the required $10,000 of his $100,000 bail.

Sarabia, of the 800 block of Ford Avenue, did not show up for his court date on Nov. 21, and a warrant was issued for his arrest, according to Elgin police.

Although Sarabia had an Immigration and Naturalization Services hold against him, a Cook County ordinance passed in September allowed Sarabia to leave the Cook County jail after posting bond.

Illegal immigrants suspected in 30 border fires in Arizona

November 22, 2011
Los Angeles Times

People entering the U.S. illegally from Mexico are believed responsible for more than one-third of human-ignited wildfires in Arizona over a five-year period, according to a government report that could stoke congressional debate over illegal immigration.

Sen. John McCain
(R-Ariz.) said the Government Accountability Office report supports (Access GAO Report here) remarks he made earlier this year after his state was hit hard by wildfires.  At the time, McCain was accused of "scapegoating" immigrants.

"I hope this report is a lesson to the activists and public officials that would prefer to engage in partisan character attacks rather than help focus the discussion on the vital need to secure our southern border," he said in a statement.
