I just submitted testimony – You can too!  This is what I submitted.

OUGHT NOT TO PASS   Maine does not need an Office of New Americans.  We need to deal with the American citizens who are here now.  We need to focus on the current homeless people in Maine and get them to a point where they can be productive citizens.  Have we given up on our current homeless people?  There are veterans and children that we have here now that we have not yet properly addressed.  We do not need 75,000 “New Americans.”  It is said that we have a housing crisis, and this is being addressed by LD2003 and LD1672.  If we have a current crisis, what is the sense in bringing 75,000 “New Americans” into Maine???

If you want to submit testimony online, simply follow the instructions HERE. Check the box for a public hearing, then State and Local Government committee.

And I will be sending the same note to:

Subject: GOP legislators embrace Foreigners First foolishness

Pay no attention to the escalating invasion across the USA’s wide-open southern border with Mexico. It has nothing to do with Maine. Nothing at all.

Our task is to figure out how to deal with the thousands of invaders who have already settled in Maine since Janet Mills took office. If we only had more data, we could figure out who these people are, why they came here, and what they need from us. That’s why Maine needs an Office of New Americans.

I apologize for subjecting you to this nonsense today, but that’s how numb things are in the Statehouse swamp. Sadly, the drivel above is a paraphrase of an email Sen. Rick Bennett of Oxford sent out over the weekend.

Bennett is one of the two GOP co-sponsors of LD 2167, Janet Mills’ proposal to set up an immigrant resettlement agency in the executive branch of state government. In response to critics who are urging him to withdraw his sponsorship, Bennett is doubling down on his support for LD 2167 via a canned generic response that reeks of disinformation.

We need to continue applying pressure on Sen. Bennett and Rep. Amanda Collamore — the other GOP co-sponsor.

The saddest part of Bennett’s incoherent canned response is that he’s giving cover to open-borders Democrats who can now claim that Mills’ bid to turbo-charge illegal immigration into Maine is a “bi-partisan” initiative. Bennett’s co-sponsorship will make it all the more difficult to peel off the 8 to 10 House Democrats we will need to defeat the measure in the House.

Shame on him.  Let’s maintain the pressure on this turkey.  For fact-based talking points check out Steve Robinson’s outstanding analysis:

The Stork, the Conveyor Belt and the Boy-Girl Stamp – Submitted by Diane Franz, 9/24/2022
Many years ago, there was a cartoon that ended with a stork stamping babies “boy” or “girl” as they came down a fast-moving conveyor belt. It was just one of those silly cartoon antics that sometimes stays with you for years and even my husband remembered it.  That image keeps coming to mind as I learn more about The Maine’s Department of Education’s …[Read more]
