The relentless influx of illegals crossing America’s southern border on a daily basis has put an undue burden on those tasked with processing these international lawbreakers. As the Department of Homeland Security recently announced, the occupation has also resulted in a huge drain on other resources – specifically underwear.
According to a recent request, the DHS is asking the government for an enormous supply of cotton briefs up to size XXXXXXL to meet the clothing needs of the illegal border-crossers. One group has responded to that solicitation with an idea of its own.
Amnesty opponents in the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) put out a call this week for citizens to mail their used underwear to the White House in an effort to assist in the collection effort.
In a statement posted to its website, ALIPAC President William Gheen complained that America’s embrace of amnesty over border security “only brings more unwanted and destructive illegal immigration!”
He then laid out the group’s call to action.
“Instead of using our tax money to buy illegals 42,000 pairs of new underwear, we would like to send the illegals and DC politicians a message by mailing them our used underwear, and some of our pairs are in really bad shape due to the bad economy and all of the jobs illegal immigrants are taking from Americans.”
The statement went on to discourage Americans from sending unwashed donations, asserting “DC is already full of dirty laundry.”
ALIPAC criticized leaders in both parties who refuse to adequately address America’s immigration problem. The Obama administration’s use of taxpayer money to support illegals when they arrive, only to release them into the population a short time later, is a disastrous policy, the group noted.
House Speaker John Boehner, the statement suggested, is hardly an encouraging voice of Republican opposition.
“Americans who want to help the illegals and Americans who are upset that John Boehner and Barack Obama are throwing the future of American children under the bus along with their Oaths of Office, the US Constitution, the outcome of our elections, and the current laws of Congress,” the group wrote, “are encouraged to mail their used underwear to Barack Obama at The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500, and John Boehner at Office of the Speaker, H-232 The Capitol, Washington, DC 20515.”
