Join Black American Leadership Alliance at DC March For Jobs!

Black American Leadership Alliance

The Black American Leadership Alliance has organized the DC March for Jobs protest to demand members of Congress reject amnesty, and let them know that amnesty in tantamount to selling out the black American community.

President Obama was elected and reelected with the overwhelming support of black Americans across the nation, but now for political expediency, Barack Obama supports throwing the black American community, labor unions, and all of the 22 million jobless Americans under the bus.

Mission

We believe it is time that members of Congress act to preserve economic opportunity for American workers – and pass immigration legislation that protects and supports the nearly 22 million American citizens who do not have jobs, or cannot find adequate employment to support their families. Economists report that labor participation in the U.S. is at its lowest rate in over 30 years.

Despite sluggish economic conditions, some in Congress have put forth immigration proposals to increase legal immigration levels by 50% and provide amnesty to over 11 million people who have entered the country illegally. We stand against these proposals, as they will result in adding millions more to the U.S. labor force, putting millions of American citizens out of work.

To help to stop Congress’ amnesty push, join the Black American Leadership Alliance for our march on Washington on Monday, July 15, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. at Freedom Plaza as we demand that our leaders reject amnesty, and pass immigration policies that put black Americans back to work.

    Here is a real reason to protest, but sadly, it won’t get much coverage.
