GOP Ignores Immigration -- AFP Grows

Boulder, CO - The America First Party continues its rapid growth, while the Republican National Committee is ignoring a leading concern of its base and all Americans who want a safe and secure America. Party leaders attribute this rapid growth to the party's strong and consistent message, the betrayal of American values by the two-party duopoly, and the grassroots activism of party members. This spring, the party elected its first public official, who ran in Massachusetts on a platform emphasizing the problems caused by illegal immigration and promoting a consistent and conservative pro-family message.

National Chair Dan Charles stated, "The AFP's message is resonating with the American people. The Party recognizes that the first step to protect our culture and our nation is to secure the borders and implement a rational immigration policy. Republicans cared about this issue once. The grassroots of that party still does. But, its corrupt leadership has made it clear they don't anymore. They don't care what their base holds dear."

This week, the GOP's convention website offered a page soliciting comments from its members and the general public for the Republican's Platform Committee. The page includes a list of issues titled, "What is most important to you?" Immigration is not on the list.

Mr. Charles continued, "Twenty years after President Reagan reminded us that any nation that fails to secure its borders will soon cease to exist, the GOP leadership is promoting amnesty for illegal immigrants and blackballing candidates and elected officials who seek serious immigration reform. While our culture, language and the jobs of American citizens are threatened by open borders, the greatest impact of this deliberate negligence is on our national security and the safety of the American people."

"Transnational terrorists have made their intensions known," added Mr. Charles. "They will infiltrate our country through our porous borders and attack our nation's people and economy, like they did nearly three years ago, killing thousands and causing more than one trillion dollars in damage to the US economy. The failure of both Democrats and Republicans to secure the borders is criminal. They send our troops to die in unconstitutional wars for the benefit of foreign peoples and UN mandates, while they emasculate the Bill of Rights. Yet, they invite our enemies to live among us."

People who care about this country are helping to build a third party that is viable and can effectively defeat the mind-numbingly stupid and anti-American policies of the Democrats and Republicans. They are joining the America First Party in droves, with members in 46 states already. The Party's website continues to be a popular destination for Americans sick of the "say one thing, do another" parties, averaging 200,000 visitors a month.

Mr. Charles concluded, "The America First Party is also promoting trade, tax, and fiscal policies that focus on what is best for all the American people, not just those who can make large contributions. We are committed to the traditional values that are the cornerstone of our nation and its Constitution, and a foreign policy that screams, 'Independence Forever.'"
