MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is marshaling the conservative movement forces to the Granite State on behalf of former Sen. Scott Brown. Sessions, in a letter to the public asking them to help Brown, is defining New Hampshire’s Senate race as the battle between amnesty supporters and opponents in November.
“Scott Brown urgently needs your help in his fight to stop Obama’s amnesty and protect our national security,” Sessions wrote in a fundraising appeal to the grassroots. “Open borders billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is spending one million dollars to defeat Scott Brown. He knows that a Scott Brown victory is a massive defeat for Obama’s extreme immigration policies. Scott Brown’s opponent in this race, on the other hand, is a reliable vote for Obama’s immigration policies and his desire to bring in millions of new low-wage workers to compete for your jobs and wages.”
Sessions’ support for Brown comes amid a campaign against incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) in which he’s made immigration a key issue. Sessions is arguably the intellectual leader in Congress of the anti-amnesty and pro-American worker immigration movement.
Brown has hammered Shaheen for her support for amnesty for illegal aliens, her failure to secure the border in the face of terrorist and biological threats to the United States, and most recently for her support for open borders immigration policies that would displace or depress the wages of struggling American workers with newly amnestied illegal aliens and future guest workers from foreign countries.
Sessions called this election the “epicenter” of the fight to stop Obama’s planned executive amnesty, in which the president plans to legalize and grant work authorization to upwards of five million illegal immigrants in America right after the election.
“The President’s immigration policies will reduce your pay, increase your tax bill, and squeeze millions of Americans out of the middle class,” Sessions wrote in the New Hampshire GOP fundraising email on Brown’s behalf. “We need to help struggling Americans find good jobs and rising pay — not import more low-wage workers to replace them. Your donation to the Brown Campaign can help level the playing field. This election is the epicenter of the fight to stop Obama’s immigration agenda. This is where we draw the line. This is where we make our stand.”
Sessions cites Brown’s recent debate performances, in which he honed in on the economic effects an Obama amnesty would have on struggling Americans.
“Scott Brown has pledged to fight for American workers and American jobs,” Sessions wrote. “He has pledged to serve the working people of New Hampshire. He has pledged to protect our border so we can keep out threats–whether they be deadly terrorists or deadly viruses.”
Brown has been slamming the economic effects of Obama’s and Shaheen’s immigration policies in the recent debates.
“When you’re looking at that bill, what it also does is it immediately gives an opportunity for the president to authorize upwards of 11 million people to get jobs,” Brown said when talking about the Senate-passed “Gang of Eight” immigration bill in Tuesday night’s debate. “I want to fight for jobs for New Hampshire. Here’s another thing about immigration. I voted to secure the border on two occasions. I voted to send troops to the border. We need to absolutely secure the border. The president, through his executive order, what he’s proposing to do is actively expand the definition of refugee to somebody who’s here [illegally] to work.”
“She [Shaheen] voted for a bill that would have given the president the authority to legalize about 11 million people, give them the ability to work and take away jobs from people in this country,” Brown followed up in Thursday’s debate. “I’m going to be working for the people of New Hampshire, so they can get jobs. It’s a real problem. The way to stop it is he [Obama] is preparing right now to legalize additional people who are not entitled to [those] benefits. We need to deal with the funding issues regarding that.”
Polling data conducted for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) by firm Paragon Insights, and obtained by Breitbart News, shows overwhelming support for this message on immigration.
The poll of 1,502 likely 2014 voters, conducted from Oct. 3 to Oct. 5, found that 73 percent of all voters are either somewhat more or much more likely to support a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate who has made clear that their stance on immigration is: “The American people are right to be concerned about their jobs and wages, and elected officials should put the needs of American workers first.”
In addition, the polling shows 70 percent of American likely voters would be more likely to support a Republican nominee if they believe: “The first goal of immigration policy needs to be getting unemployed Americans back to work — not importing more low-wage workers to replace them.”
That’s why Sessions says it’s so important for New Hampshire to elect Brown over the Zuckerberg-backed Shaheen.
“But the agenda Mark Zuckerberg is lobbying for serves the interests of global CEOs who think borders are good for their mansions but not for their country,” Sessions wrote to grassroots activists. “The stakes could not be higher. President Obama announced his plans to nullify America’s immigration laws and issue a sweeping executive amnesty after the election. This action would give work permits, photo ID’s, and Social Security numbers to millions of illegal immigrants — taking precious jobs directly from struggling Americans.”
Sessions said that ordinary Americans “have the power to fight back.”
“You have the power to send a bolt of lightning that will send shock waves through Washington DC,” Sessions said. “You have the power to tell Obama and his open borders extremists: NO. At this moment in history — at this grave hour — the single most effective thing you can do to stop Obama’s executive amnesty is to help elect Scott Brown.”
