March 28, 2014 – Matthews, N.C. – Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) this week announced the endorsement of Michael Steinberg to unseat Republican incumbentRobert Pittenger from North Carolina's 9th district in the May 9 Republican Primary election. ALIPAC said in its press release that it opposes Pittenger's support for a form of amnesty for illegal immigrants that is similar to President Barack Obama's amnesty plan.
ALIPAC took the incumbent DC insider Robert Pittenger to task last month when an email from the group Fwd.us celebrated Pittenger's support for a pathway to legalization and eventual voting rights for millions of illegal immigrants. Robert Pittenger's support for changing existing laws to accommodate millions of illegal aliens was further confirmed in an article written by Franco Ordonez of McClatchy on Feb. 10, 2014. As a result, ALIPAC added Pittenger to the list of 36 GOP members of Congress working with Boehner and Obama to pass a nation-altering amnesty bill for illegal aliens.
"We are happy to extend all the support we can to Michael Steinberg in the GOP Primary of 2014 against Robert Pittenger since Pittenger is on record supporting the same immigration reform ideas backed by Barack Obama," said William Gheen President of ALIPAC and former assistant Sgt-At Arms to the N.C. Senate Pittenger served in. "Pittenger has a lot of money and will receive even more from his liberal allies that value his support for amnesty. But if we can accurately inform GOP voters of Pittenger's stances and Mike Steinberg's opposition to amnesty for illegals, we can defeat Robert Pittenger!"
"One of the few responsibilities that the federal government is Constitutionally authorized to do is protect us from foreign invasion," said Mike Steinberg, candidate for U.S. Congress for N.C.'s 9th district. "Make no mistake, with estimates between 10 million and 30 million illegal immigrants, we have been invaded. Pittenger's weak stance on immigration helps President Obama and Nancy Pelosi be emboldened to continue to turn a blind eye, and for the Justice Department to continually reject states' requests for help enforcing federal law. The answer is simple: Mr. President, Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Pittenger: Enforce the laws you were sworn to uphold!"
Michael Steinberg completed ALIPAC's 2014 Federal Candidate Survey where he promises to support Americans and legal immigrants by supporting the adequate enforcement of America's existing border and immigration laws as the U.S. Constitution requires for the protection of American jobs, elections, taxpayer resources, health, and lives; whereas, Robert Pittenger would undermine and destroy our existing borders and immigration laws by putting tens of millions of illegals on a path to dominating future U.S. elections and legislation.
North Carolina's primaries will be decided on May 6 and ALIPAC is currently endorsing more than 90 federal candidates. The national organization was founded on 9/11 of 2004 and is encouraging the more than 50,000 supporters to vote, volunteer, and donate to endorsed candidates who have made opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants an important part of their campaigns.

February 28, 2014 - Matthews, N.C. - Michael D. "Mike" Steinberg today announced he is filing to run for U.S. House of Representatives for the 9th Congressional District seat currently held by Robert Pittenger. Steinberg is a conservative Republican, businessman and author from Matthews and was a candidate in the 2012 primary race. Steinberg seeks to fill the need for principled representation in Washington D.C., and is eager to take bold steps to stop Obama's harmful plans against American prosperity and liberties. His campaign website is www.mikeforus.com. To view the announcement video, please go to http://youtu.be/iV8i7CzREIw .
During his first term in office, Rep. Pittenger voted to fund Obamacare, raise the debt ceiling, supported NSA spying, and co-sponsored a bill to fund Obama's Infrastructure Bank. Pittenger also has been criticized for cooperating with lobbyists and the D.C. establishment instead of adhering to the Constitution and the Republican platform.
"Until we get money out of politics nothing will change in Washington," said Steinberg. "Lobbyists, PACS and Special Interest Groups have been able to hijack our government because of complicit legislators. Pittenger has neglected his oath to the Constitution and abandoned his constituents by supporting programs like Obamacare, NSA spying, increasing the debt ceiling, amnesty, and other decisions that profit the political elites and their partners in D.C. We need leaders who are passionate about selflessly serving their constituents. I have the courage, determination, values, experience, Constitutional understanding and common sense to make the right decisions in D.C."
"Sadly, Washington politicians have worked their way into nearly every aspect of our lives," added Steinberg. "Not only are many Americans still struggling financially, citizens are incrementally losing more and more freedoms that are supposed to be protected by our Constitution and our representatives. We need to defund the so-called ‘Affordable Healthcare Act' (Obamacare) - since it's anything but affordable, stop the spying on American citizens, and immediately begin reducing the federal debt. In addition, I am strongly in favor of auditing the Federal Reserve." /p>
Steinberg is currently a general manager of a small business and has extensive real-world business experience in the financial and insurance industries. He is the author of a book called Tea for Three: What Every American MUST Learn About the Tea Party Before It's Too Late (Saber of Truth Ministries, July 2012) and wrote and created a DVD Bible study series called Living Energy. Mike also was an elder and co-pastor of a non-denominational church for approximately ten years.
