Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) September 22, 2005
ALIPAC, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, is pleased to endorse Jim Gilchrist and his campaign for Congress in California's District 48.
On October 4, CA District 48, Orange County, has a special election to replace Congressman Chris Cox, who resigned to join the Bush administration. Jim Gilchrist is known nationally as a founder of the highly successful citizen border watch movement, the Minuteman Project.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is endorsing Jim Gilchrist because of his selfless dedication and successful activism addressing our national crisis of border security and illegal immigration. The Minuteman Project drew international attention in April when civilian volunteers brought illegal alien and drug smuggling traffic to a halt on the Arizona border.
"We need to elect Jim Gilchrist to Congress because he is a real leader -- the perfect messenger to send to Washington to get these problems solved. Voters across America are making the control of illegal immigration a top priority in their support of candidates, with good reason! An unprecedented number of illegal migrants are crossing our open borders each year. This flood of unknown persons directly, negatively affects public policies of top concern to the voters. Our nation's capacity to prevent terrorist attacks, grow a strong economy, improve jobs and wages for American workers, and provide quality education and affordable healthcare are all undermined by the economic and societal burden of our dysfunctional immigration system."
"In Jim's California district, all the surveys show voters are ready to hold Washington accountable for the government's failure to act on illegal immigration Â on our borders and in our communities. We need to send Congress a message and Jim Gilchrist IS the message," says William Gheen, President of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC.
"We feel that Jim Gilchrist's plan to tackle border security and illegal immigration will have a positive impact on our national security, jobs, schools, and a reduction of crime, healthcare costs and taxes." Gheen says. "Voters will send him to Congress knowing they have voted to further the national debate -- and federal action -- on illegal immigration. 'National security, national sovereignty, and rule of law' are Jim Gilchrist's priorities, and ALIPAC shares them in full."
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is a national non-partisan political action committee dedicated to supporting candidates that will enforce America's existing immigration laws. We call on our supporters in all 50 states to assist the Gilchrist campaign as volunteers and contributors. More information on the web at http://www.alipac.us and http://www.jimgilchrist.com
