Immigration Reform Drive Set for April

These citizen lobbyists are paying their own way to Washington to lobby for immigration reform, explained Morgan of "The Lee Rogers and Melanie Morgan Show." Along with providing buttons and badges, Morgan and her crew will form people into teams and educate them on how to make effective presentations to congressional representatives.

"People need to know," Morgan said, "that with the advent of the Tnternet, talk radio and grassroots activists we can make a difference." Now this dynamic reporter turned soccer mom turned radio talk show host and activist is focusing her boundless energy on our nation's leaders.

"The audience we really have to play to is a man who should be on the other side of this issue, President Bush," said Morgan. "We want to work with the president, not against him. An amnesty program by any other name is still an amnesty program. It didn't work in the '80s, the '90s, and it's not working in the 2000s."

There's no doubt that Morgan understands a thing or two about enacting change. Just ask former California Gov. Gray Davis, who was defeated in a recall election due in large part to Morgan's efforts. Known across the nation as the "Mother of the Recall," Morgan stands up for what is right and follows through to make it happen.

"We've got hundreds coming [to Washington, D.C.]," Morgan said, referring to the overwhelming response of the listeners. And she wants every reader and listener to know that their help is needed.

Illegal immigration has reached devastating proportions. Our children are paying the price in impacted schools, Morgan explained. Overcome by millions of dollars in unpaid medical bills, hospitals and emergency rooms across the country are closing. Tuberculosis, virtually eradicated in the United States by 1983, is again on the rise as people carrying the disease bypass the health requirements of legal immigration.

Annually, illegals cost Arizona taxpayers $1.3 billion and California taxpayers a whopping $10.5 billion. And these numbers are escalating rapidly, while states like California buckle under the financial strain.

Leaders in Washington have forgotten that immigrating to the United States is a privilege, not a right. Their obligation is to the citizens of the United States, not illegal aliens. And I have no doubt that Morgan and company will be "holding their feet to the fire." To join the team going to Washington, D.C., go to: www.ksfo.com
