ALIPAC Calls for Napolitano Resignation in Wake of SPLC Scandal
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is joining the chorus of calls for the resignation or termination of Janet Napolitano due to the Department of Homeland Security's reliance on faulty information from discredited left wing political groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center.
"Labeling tens of millions of Americans who are veterans, or concerned about taxes, gun rights, or illegal immigration as potential domestic terrorists is inexcusable," said William Gheen of ALIPAC.
"To use anecdotal information found online and provided by discredited leftist groups like the SPLC and ADL to criminalize popular political positions in American cannot be tolerated in a free society. Janet Napolitano must resign or be fired by Obama. If not, then all Americans can safely assume that President Barack Obama supports these highly unpopular and offensive polices coming from the Department of Homeland Security.
DHS documents sent to law enforcement in Missouri and across the nation warns police to be on the lookout for Americans who like short wave radios, Tom Clancy novels, some Presidential candidates, historic American flags, returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, or display political materials and bumper stickers about abortion, illegal immigration, taxes, or gun rights.
These concerns have been elevated by a recent ads run by the National Guard to recruit "Internment/Resettlement" specialists and Executive Branch measures designed to place the President in control of the National Guard. "People who are concerned about illegal immigration and our Government's complete failure to secure our borders and enforce our existing immigration laws during a time of war represents the popular view on these issues, and not some kind of domestic terrorist threat," said William Gheen.
"We call for Napolitano's resignation or termination and ask that all federal officials take immediate actions to dispel public concerns about rampant taxation, gun rights, and open borders plans."
Recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests filed by Americans for Limited Government found DHS relied upon strange websites and left wing political groups with reputations for exaggeration and radical political positions such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti Defamation League.
According to ALG President Bill Wilson, not one single source listed in the 217 pages of FOIA source information received from DHS was a governmental source. Similar false accusations of domestic terrorism or extremism have been made by Democrat lawmakers attacking the Tax Day Tea Party events and more recently the health care reform town hall protesters.
"When Homeland Security starts branding Americans as 'extremists' based on non-governmental left wing political groups then it is time for immediate change!," said William Gheen.
"Either Obama reigns in DHS or we will move to call for the dissolution of the Department of Homeland Security and a return of American security matters to agencies with more checks and balances to prevent political abuse and misuse." "Americans should be free to practice any nonviolent political positions they want, without fear of or threat of oppression from the SPLC, ADL, or DHS!" said William Gheen.
"One has to look back in history to Germany and the Soviet Union in the middle of the last century to find this kind of politicization of police forces now found under the Obama Presidency."
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is one of America's largest grassroots organizations fighting against illegal immigration and Amnesty. Based at alipac.us the organization has been widely quoted and sourced in the American media and by lawmakers over the last five years. ALIPAC has been attacked with falsehoods by the ADL and SPLC and accused of being "anti-immigrant" despite the fact we are supported by many LEGAL immigrants and we support LEGAL immigration.
