A group opposed to comprehensive immigration reform compared millions of the nation’s undocumented immigrants to Sept. 11, 2001 plane hijackers — on the 12th anniversary of the terror attacks.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC posted an email to its website Wednesday asking members to write lawmakers and “Amnesty supporters” such as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us and urge them to vote against immigration reform.
“Today, let us bow our heads in prayer for those lost on 9/11 and the thousands of Americans who continue to be slaughtered each year by illegal immigrants who are being supported by large corporations and our own government and politicians,” wrote William Gheen, the group’s president.
“Let’s hit these office phone lines, Twitter accounts, and Facebook pages hard today, and instead of pro Amnesty supporters, let all Americans speak against Amnesty on 9/11!” he added. “The illegals are trying to hijack the cockpit of America’s government! Let’s roll!”
