What disturbs me about the demonstrations is that it's tantamount to saying, "I am going to come into your country even if it means breaking your laws and there's nothing you can do about it,"
I don't know how everybody else feels about it, but to me I think Hispanic
people in this country, legally or illegally, made a huge public relations
mistake with their recent demonstrations.
I don't blame anybody in the world for wanting to come to the United States
of America, as it is a truly wonderful place. But when the first thing you
do when you set foot on American soil is illegal it is flat out wrong and I
don't care how many lala land left heads come out of the woodwork and start
trying to give me sensitivity lessons.
I don't need sensitivity lessons; in fact I don't have anything against
Mexicans! I just have something against criminals and anybody who comes
into this country illegally is a criminal and if you don't believe it try
coming into America from a foreign country without a passport and see how
far you get.
What disturbs me about the demonstrations is that it's tantamount to saying,
"I am going to come into your country even if it means breaking your laws
and there's nothing you can do about it."
It's an "in your face" action and speaking just for me I don't like it one
little bit and if there were a half dozen pairs of gonads in Washington
bigger than English peas it wouldn't be happening. Where are you, you bunch
of lily livered, pantywaist, forked tongued, sorry excuses for defenders of
The Constitution? Have you been drinking the water out of the Potomac again?
And even if you pass a bill on immigration it will probably be so pork lad en
and watered down that it won't mean anything anyway. Besides, what good is
any other law going to do when you won't enforce the ones on the books now?
And what ever happened to the polls guys? I thought you folks were the
quintessential finger wetters. Well you sure ain't paying any attention to
the polls this time because somewhere around eighty percent of Americans
want something done about this mess, and mess it is and getting bigger
This is no longer a problem; it is a dilemma and headed for being a tragedy.
Do you honestly think that what happened in France with the Muslims can't
happen here when the businesses who hire these people finally run out of
jobs and a few million disillusioned Hispanics take to the streets?
If you, Mr. President, Congressmen and Senators, knuckle under on this and
refuse to do something meaningful it means that you care nothing for the
kind of country your children and grandchildren will inherit.
But I guess that doesn't matter as long as you get re-elected. Shame on you.
One of the big problems in America today is that if you have the nerve to
say anything derogatory about any group of people (except Christians) you
are going to be screamed at by the media and called a racist, a bigot and
anything else they can think of to call you..
Well I've been pounded by the media before and I'm still rockin' and rollin'
and when it comes to speaking the truth I fear not. And the truth is that
the gutless, gonad-less, milksop politicians are just about to sell out the
United States of America because they don't have the intestinal fortitude to
stand up to the face reality.
And reality is that we would never allow any other group of people to have
12 million illegals in this country and
turn around and say, "Oh it's ok,
ya'll can stay here if you'll just allow us to slap your wrist."
And I know that some of you who read this column are saying "Well what's
wrong with that?" I'll tell you what's wrong with it. These people could be
from Mars as far as we know. We don't know who they are, where they are or
what they're up to and the way the Congress is going we're not going to.
Does this make sense? Labor force you say? We already subsidize corporate
agriculture as it is, must we subsidize their labor as well?
If these people were from Haiti or if they were from Somalia or Afghanistan
would we be so fast to turn a blind eye to them? I think not.
All the media shows us are pictures of hard working Hispanics who have
crossed the border just to try to better their life. They don't show you
pictures of the Feds rounding up members of MS 13, the violent gang who came
across the same way the decent folks did. They don't tell you about the
living conditions of the Mexican illegals some fat cat hired to pick his
I want to make two predictions.
No. 1: This situation is going to grow and fester until it erupts in violence
on our streets while the wimps in Washington drag their toes in the dirt
and try to figure how many tons of political hay they can make to the acre.
No 2: Somebody is going to cross that border with some kind of weapon of
mass destruction and set it off in a major American city after which there
will be a backlash such as this country has never experienced and the
Capitol building in Washington will probably tilt as Congressmen and
Senators rush to the other side of the issue.
I don't know about you but I would love to see just one major politician
stand up and say, "I don't care who I make mad and I don't care how many
votes I lose, this is a desperate situation and I'm going to lead the fight
to get it straightened out."
I don't blame anybody for wanting to come to America, but if you don't
respect our immigration laws why should you respect any others.
And by the way, this is America and our flag has stars and stripes. Please
get that other one out of my face.
Pray for our troops
What do you think?
May the good Lord take a likin to ya

|Same problems here in Australia, and I cannot see it ever improving until we get ourselves a government with guts. Better still a people that will change the govenment to a better one. But who will we choose, who can we choose without them becoming contaminated by do gooders?|

|Way to go Charlie!!!! I agree with you 100%.. I dont care if someone
wants to better thier way of life but dont come here and expect
us to let u do it ilegally!! We have rules we have to follow
and ways things have to be done... NOBODY should get anything
for nothing.. We all have to work for what we want (and then
still dont get it) why shouldnt everyone else.. "southern by choose"
AMERICAN BY THE GRACE OF GOD!!!!!!!

Your article is right on!
Do a areacode map search: http://www.nanpa.com/area_code_maps/ac_map_static.html once you arrive at this site, click on California, then Texas and then Florida. Then compare how many in these three states.
Now, click on any surrounding state and count how many area codes.
Do you get my drift? Makes ya wonder if the states that are clustered full of area codes is where the illegals are running to.

|Thanks for posting Lisa. Just what is it about illegal that is not understood? Priority 1 --- Close the border. Priority 2 --- Deport illegals. No amnesty. Then worry about guest worker and other programs. Absorb the dislocations. Get back to legality and sanity. Period.

|Thanks for posting Lisa! This is truth, even though hard to face. Can you imagine if we tried it in their country or any other foreign country? I'm more upset with the politicians than the people. Who wouldn't come here if we keep making it this easy? I only hope the solution comes quick,and is the right one, before we have riots in this country.

|As a Canadian watching the events unfold and getting as they say a media slanted perspective although I might sympathize with the plight of the immigrants that are only trying to improve their lifes and that of their children, I also agree with Mr Danials attitude that if you come with your hand out then be humble, be thankful, and be glad that the country you are coming to does not shoot first and ask questions later.

Heartbreaking reality...I fear the problem is going to escalate into madness and bloodshed if something's not done. This has got to end, now. And giving the illegals amnesty is not going to solve it; give them that, and they'll want more. Get 'em out, now.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
