This is a position paper of The Jacksonian Party.
The following passed and made into law:
1) Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 - Public Law 99-603 (Act of 11/6/86), which was passed in order to control and deter illegal immigration to the United States. Its major provisions stipulate legalization of undocumented aliens who had been continuously unlawfully present since 1982, legalization of certain agricultural workers, sanctions for employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers, and increased enforcement at U.S. borders.
2) Immigration Marriage Fraud Amendments of 1986 - Public Law 99-639 (Act of 11/10/86), which was passed in order to deter immigration-related marriage fraud. Its major provision stipulates that aliens deriving their immigrant status based on a marriage of less than two years are conditional immigrants. To remove their conditional status the immigrants must apply at an U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office during the 90-day period before their second-year anniversary of receiving conditional status. If the aliens cannot show that the marriage through which the status was obtained was and is a valid one, their conditional immigrant status may be terminated and they may become deportable.
3) Immigration Act of 1990 - Public Law 101-649 (Act of November 29, 1990), which increased the limits on legal immigration to the United States, revised all grounds for exclusion and deportation, authorized temporary protected status to aliens of designated countries, revised and established new nonimmigrant admission categories, revised and extended the Visa Waiver Pilot Program, and revised naturalization authority and requirements.
4) Maritime Drug Law Enforcement Act, PL 99-570, THOMAS bill citation: A bill to strengthen Federal efforts to encourage foreign cooperation in eradicating illicit drug crops and in halting international drug traffic, to improve enforcement of Federal drug laws and enhance interdiction of illicit drug shipments, to provide strong Federal leadership in establishing effective drug abuse prevention and education programs, to expand Federal support for drug abuse treatment and rehabilitation efforts, and for other purposes.
For more of the same you can go to THOMAS for the 99th Congress and type in the search area "illegal alien". It is amazing what did and did not get into some of these bills!
Now, along with this was lots of strong verbiage from Congress that they would, indeed, strengthen the borders.
And a big Thank You to Rep. C. W. Bill Young [Florida - 8th district] for trying to stop this non-sense!
And one to Rep. Eldon D. Rudd [Arizona - 4th district] to try and get folks to realize that borders with a Foreign Nation just might need the Armed Forces for some help!
And a further on to Rep. Carlos J. Moorehead [California - 22nd district] to recognizes the Border Patrol needed 50% more manpower!
And a special big Thank You to Rep. Charles E. Bennett [Florida - 3rd district] that would move illegal aliens from State and Local prisons to Federal ones where they belong as being here ILLEGALLY! Too bad that didn't pass...
Yes, indeed! Verbiage spewn and all sorts of political promises made... but actually *voting* for National Sovereignty... that was something else now, wasn't it? So Here are the folks who were sitting in the 99th Congress who are *still* around!
99th Congressmembers still in service who promised YOU they would do something about National Security and the Border:

My thanks to the Congressional Biographical Directory!
As I count it you get 90 Members of Congress from both Houses.
While The Jacksonian Party cannot endorse *any* member of Congress, because they have refused to actually READ the Constitution so as to understand their powers, the folks on this list should be singled out for going back on their PROMISE to do something. So a few folks might want to start asking some pointed campaign questions this summer... something along the lines of:
"Congressman, you were a member of the 99th Congress that promised to enhance border security and controls to stop illegal aliens from getting into this Nation so that the Nation would be secured and our National Sovereignty assured. Why didn't you? You have had TWO DECADES TO GET IT DONE!"A follow up of "Why should we believe ANYTHING you say when you cannot keep that Congress' promise to the Nation?" might just be a bit obnoxious but direct and to the point.
Look at that list.
Remember that Congress has set its own size.
Remember that the Two Parties divide up districts so as to have safe seats.
90 of them have been sitting there for over 20 years and ignoring National Security. That is 10 terms in the House and 3-4 in the Senate.
Are they *really* representing Your needs and Defending the Nation?
Some VERY pointed questions should go to these folks and they should show, year in and year out, how they pushed for Bills to tighten the border and end illegal entry to the Nation. And how, every year, it was *everyone else* who stopped them. Mind you, Congress has changed hands since then, and the Presidency has gone back and forth between Parties. So blaming one party or the other is NOT an answer.
It is a charade.
Only We the People can end it.
"One man with courage makes a majority." - Andrew Jackson
Each and every One of Us as We the People.
The clowns on this list have no courage and can form no majority.
The word for those that do nothing on a team except be present to cheer?
And that is *exactly* what they are, all 90 of them.
