ANTIs In Congress To FORCE Introduction of SAVE ACT (GESTAPO Bill) at Immigration Talk with a Mexican American.
Note to Readers: A number of ANTI websites including FAIR, NumbersUSA, Alipac.us and others are providing their members (blind followers) free fax and form letters for emails. They are being asked to mass call and deluge Congress´ emails and faxes. The ANTI sites are keeping track and hounding all Congress members who have not signed on. Here is an example of what the ANTI sites are saying. READ HERE(Please visit ITWMA's blog, but I wanted to quote this because we have to act!)

This first post from Culture Kitchen reminds me of a terrible joke that states if the government can track the livestock accurately back then they should give every undocumented migrant a cow. (Although, I believe the implication is that they be treated as such.) More Insanity from Rep. Steve King (R-IA): "...we do this with livestock all the time" , I am watching BLINDSIGHT the documentary and all I have to say is WOW!, and Black and Missing But Not Forgotten which publicizes missing persons cases not picked up by the media.
