The Number of Anti-Amnesty Petition Signers Surpasses Gang of Eight

Roy Beck, the Executive Director for NumbersUSA, posted an interesting update yesterday showing that the number of people signing his anti-amnesty petition has surpassed the one spearheaded by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and the Gang of Eight.

Sen. Schumer’s PRO-amnesty petition had a big day today and seems to be picking up momentum. But the nation’s top ANTI-amnesty petition has even more momentum. My great thanks to all of you who were part of adding more than 30,000 new signers today! For the first time, the ANTI-amnesty petition has more signers than the one backing the Gang of Eight’s PRO-amnesty plan.

As of 9 p.m. Monday:

69,458 signers of NumbersUSA ANTI-amnesty petition

53,172 signers of Schumer’s PRO-amnesty petition supporting Gang of Eight

We’re in a public relations battle with Sen. Schumer (D-NY) who started his petition a week earlier than us to show the media that there is overwhelming support among the public for the bi-partisan Gang of Eight’s proposal to immediately give amnesty and U.S. work permits to 11 million illegal aliens.
