The amnesty of 1986 was supposed to be a “one time only” amnesty BUT this bait and switch tactic only served to INCREASE illegal immigration. We cannot afford to repeat the mistakes of the past, don’t get swindled by this fraud once again, unite to fight!


A new non-partisan coalition comprised of grass roots citizens groups and secure border advocates is calling on Congress to solve the illegal immigration crisis that has plagued the U.S. for decades.  The Remember 1986 Coalition advocates for true immigration reform without a controversial amnesty element which has scuttled previous attempts at federal immigration legislation.

Our detailed plan for true immigration reform includes real border security with secure border fencing to prevent unlawful entry, enforcement of existing immigration laws, mandatory use of E-Verify by employers to ensure a legal workforce, reasonable annual legal immigration levels, an end birthright citizenship, and fix and enforce our guest worker programs.  Our plan has been carefully coordinated with immigration experts at the local and national level, as well as law enforcement leaders at the Department of Homeland Security.  

The Coalition is working with members of Congress, local politicians, and community groups, and the public to ensure a full understanding of the illegal immigration problem and the real common sense solutions that poll after poll shows the American public is looking for – securing our nation from foreign threats and preserving our long tradition of generous legal immigration.
