Illegal Immigration

13434 Responses




Illegal immigrants are a convenient scapegoat for our economic crisis. But with free markets and private property, the need for immigrant labor becomes obvious. Most immigrants, regardless of the color of their skin, are open to the ideals of liberty: private property, free markets, sound money, right to life, low taxes, less war, protection of civil liberties, and a foreign policy designed for peace.

Ron Paul proposed the following action steps for dealing with illegal immigration:

  1. Abolish the welfare state. The incentive to take a job at whatever wage available must prevail.
  2. Establish a generous visitor work program. Once we solve the economic crisis by introducing sound money, demand for domestic and immigrant labor will rise.
  3. Enforce the laws on the books with more border guards. Allow states and landowners to enforce the law and provide security assistance.
  4. Abolish birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants. [Current U.S. citizens will not be affected. Instead, babies born to illegals after a future cutoff date will no longer gain automatic U.S. citizenship. They will still have citizenship in their parents' home countries.]
  5. End all federal mandates on the states to provide free education and medical care for illegal immigrants.

    Why is there a green card lottery? The government says they want to ‘diversify’ America. They select 55 000 applicants every year! With almost no strings attached. They are wasting our tax money on this BS then sequester more important things. They have let in terrorists before. It is obvious the government does not care about their own people. What can we do? They are all corrupt and looks like they always will be and just keep getting worse. We don’t need more people here. Take care of America FIRST!!

    We don’t need anymore foreign people in America. They try and change our way of life. We don’t need them here taking our jobs by working for less. The thing is that our government is behind this for their greed. That’s why our government thinks it would raise the economy. All foreigners working for nothing; but government gets their money. Then screwing us Americans by losing more jobs. What average American can afford to live in this day and age. We don’t want to live 5 families to a house hold. We don’t want to work for nothing. We want to be able to afford to live and have some savings; but foreigners are one reason why it has gotten worse for us. We don’t want to over populate the US with outsiders either. We Americans need to take our country back. Replace the government with new people. All them old people in there have gotten soft and lost their back bone. To many crazy ideas being brought up to rid us Americans of our way. So much to cover, but do not want to write a book. No to Change!!! No to foreigners!!! No to Tyrannical Government!!! YES TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!!!!!

    Ron, the reason immigrants come over to the U.S. is because during the 70’s and the 90’s, we went to their country and started our own or expanded our businesses in Mexico. Mexican companies had no chance against us so they went out of business, causing them to come to country to look for jobs. We basically started this and now you’re blaming the Mexicans for something we did. You should be ashamed of yourself for thinking they’re the problem. You and all of your followers.

    My ancestors fought & died for this country also. Certainly not just for you foreigners to come over here to take advantage. You come over here to work, then send the money to your own country. Or you come to work for a few years, then retire back to your own country, collecting more social security then you ever paid in. Don’t have the nerve to come over here then complain about us. YOU are the selfish ones, not us. DO NOT expect us to change our language. DO NOT try to change OUR country into what you want it to be! If you don’t like the way things are here, then GO HOME! We don’t want you here anyway. RESPECT our beliefs, way of life, or leave! You are not going to change our way of life into yours.

    By the way, thanks a lot for bringing back diseases, lice, bedbugs, etc. that we had long been rid of until you ruined it. I was exposed to tuberculosis at my workplace, along with everyone else that works there, thanks to some goddamn foreigner! Who is this government loyal to anyway? They are destroying all America stands for, betraying all REAL Americans, for the foreigners coming over here trying to change it. Just to have more votes. They are just as selfish as the foreigners coming over here destroying this country

Then SHUT THE FUCK UP. THIS ISN’T YOUR FUCKING COUNTRY, YOU DON’T OWN SHIT AND YOU NEVER WOULD HAVE WITHOUT US. America is a melting pot you dumb fuck, there is no official langauge anymore and English was never the official fucking language! Don’t think just because your racist, Nazi related ancestors who came to kill off and fight MY ancestors, the REAL PEOPLE OF THIS LAND, introduced English into this country is the reason why it should be the official language. You don’t know your history, get your fucking facts straight. And you’re sitting there talking about how we should “respect your beliefs, way of life, etc…” I don’t see you respecting us either you racist cunt. Fuck you and everyone else who thinks the way you do. Bunch of fucking pathetic HYPOCRITICAL human beings is what you are.

        @Una Latina-Your profanity laden, self-entitled rant and incoherent distortion of facts and history is the reason U.S. citizens don’t want Mexicans illegally invading our country. You call our citizens racists and Nazis but want us to welcome you with open arms. Really? Obviously you hate us, call us hypocrites, think U.S. citizens aren’t entitled to an opinion.

        Is your ancestry 100% indigenous? Your Spanish or Portugese/Mexican heritage doesn’t put you on equal footing with indigenous populations of North or South America. So you too are also “foreign.” You and many other Mexicans have this deluded idea that America stole part of Mexico. So can you explain to me what the Mexican-American War or the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was all about? Who was Santa Anna?

        We have had a system of documentation in place for legal immigration since the 1800s. Unfortunately, we have lawmakers who don’t feel like we should be enforcing the existing laws. Can I go to your country illegally, start a business, own land and get benefits paid for by your government? If you want to bloat my country why can’t I do the same to your country?

        Here is a deal I think our politicians need to propose to the government of Mexico. How about for every illegal Mexican who wants to immigrate to our country and bypass our existing immigration laws, we open our prisons and send Mexico a murderer, drug trafficker etc. Mexico will also need to provide them with a place to live, free food and a welfare check of several hundred American dollars each month. They won’t feel like learning the language or assimilating into your culture so you’ll need to provide them with English versions of government documents and signage everywhere. They will also be poor and low skilled so don’t expect them to contribute any technology or be part of an educated workforce to your country either.
        The government will also need to set up schools for all of their large families of children who don’t speak any English and then give them reduced tuition if they want to go to college while Mexican citizens pay the full freight. All of which will cost the Mexican citizens millions.
        Around tax time they need to be allowed to get many thousands of dollars by claiming every niece, nephew, child and grandchild as a dependent and your government will need to pay them while they themselves put nothing into the tax system. And since we in the U.S. will be so broke from paying for all of those illegal now legal immigrants from Mexico, we’ll need those prisoners to give us the money the Mexican government gives them to equal say the second largest part of our economy. Can’t wait to see if you come back with more profanity laden vitreous spew showing your ignorance and perpetuating hatred.

          To Una Latina…. Obviously, you are exactly the kind of low life, ignorant, uneducated welfare sucking trash that we do not need in this country. You hate Americans but are IN America. Must be for all the free handouts you are getting at taxpayers expense. Of course you can’t respect Americans, you are only here to freeload. So don’t expect any respect from us either. YOU came to this country, we didn’t go to yours! If you don’t like the way things are here, do us all a favor and LEAVE!!!

    We must eliminate birthright citizenship immediately Too many people I know are coming here as students and visitors and giving birth here as an insurance policy – cos their American children can apply for their families to come to the US in future – a very inexpensive insurance policy for these parents and definitely very expensive to us American taxpayers.

      I agree. What REALLY needs to be done NOW is close the borders to ALL immigrants. Weed out those illegal immigrants >11 million minimal that rape our system and send them packing. The two Boston Marathon bombers are Russian born and came here just after 9/11. Interesting to note that timing, that I really was disappointed back then that nothing was done then to correct the problem i.e. people who can easily gain VISAs and have them expired and still live in the US. If our laws were followed, it might of stopped 9/11. Yes we are all immigrants (except the native Indians), but there is a wide disparity from the immigrants from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s (my grandparents from Europe) to the people who come here all too easily with hands wide open for handouts. Our immigrations laws are too weak and too easy for non US citizens to come over. And our illegal immigration status is also too weak, we are slowly as seen with the last few years, going the route of thrid world countries with the people out of work, low income and crimes. WE HAVE TO STOP THIS NOW!!!

        It’s easy to throw stones when you are not the ones that they are aiming for. You stated that your grandparents came from Europe and that the immigration laws were different. You are correct in noting this. When your grandparents came over, the only requirements where that they were infection free. This sometimes required a stay at Ellis Island to make sure. There was no danger of deportation since even then America was home of the free. As a matter of fact, the only people who can request that everyone should go back where they came from are the American Indians. You should also remember that if your grandparents had not come to this country looking for an opportunity, you probably would not be here. So next time you want to bash someone, find out something about American foreign policy and what American corporations are doing to other countries before screaming bloody murder.

    Ok. Let them stay. But no more chain migration. It stops the day the bill passes. No more anchor babies. That stops as well. Anyone “on the path to citizenship” must be gainfully employed. The minute they aren’t, they must leave. No social welfare entitlements — EVER. No welfare, no food stamps, no free medical, NOTHING. Not one dime of American taxpayer money.

    Then, each and every one of them must wait until all legal immigration requests at the time the bill passes are processed before they are considered for citizenship.

    You see? We don’t need to deport 20 million illegals. When the gravy train stops they’ll be pouring over the borders to go home.

    i believe this country is turning back to what it used to be between the blacks and whites RACISM! we are a united nation and should help one another because not all Mexicans steal and cheat from this country. there are a bunch of white Americans who use food stamps, medicaid, and all other needy assistance who fill there mouths with money from the hard working and low income families. i see it all the time in my state: Arizona the state of the pure, not! you have highly rich people claiming themselves to be the honest Mormons but than you have them applying for all kinds of help while they live the good life. ok america so that’s what we prefer our Americans that claim to be something there not take advantage of what this country offers, this country is full of hate, back stabbing people, who want to bring one another down instead of succeeding as one.i think all the help that we have should be abolished so we see who the hard working people are.

NOT those who weren’t born here, but just come here to freeload off taxpayers who have paid for those services that are supposed to be for theirselves! It is NOT our responsibility to provide for your life, well being. Stop freeloading.

    A slap in the face for legal immigrants like me, who are here to prove that, you can come to this country, legally but you would always have less rights than those who come here illegally…that’s a stab in the back..how come you rather to put money on the table for people who has come to your country illegally, taken advantage of the programs created to help people who are in need, not those who just won’t feel like paying to support themselves…than pay for your own goverment employees to protect your borders, your citizens and your nation I have witnessed first hand people who are illegally here taken advantage of welfare, WIC, etcetera while going out to eat and driving luxurious cars thanks to the taxpayers money..it is sad to witness a goverment who cares more about other people than their own citizens…

      As an european immigrated here two years ago I am speechless. I am a green card holder I came here legally, I pay taxes and obey the laws of this country to the letter….and what I see is that the state rewards illegals…people who broke the law.

      Though I am an immigrant myself I think birth right citizenship must be limited to citizens and maybe to permanent residents. It is too much abused…I know many people from asia who come here just to deliver!

      And by the way…how is it possible that I have to wait ten years to get any social benefit (not that I need…I have a Ph.D. I can find a job any time I want and I would be ashamed to get a penny from the state. I can take care of my family myself) and those illegals can get multiple social benefits. How the heck is this possible?

      It is really sad for me to see that even here illegals behaviors are encouraged and even rewarded.

    “America, the land of the free”. If this is the way our American representatives think, I feel sorry for the people who have to live here and suffer through the ignorance of these people. It is true what they say of immigrants, they hold the true values of the American Dream. So sad that they find misfortune and racism from the country who has historically claimed to be the land of the free, where everyone is “equal”. Ron Paul, are you aware that you’re the immigrant in this country? Are you aware that the only reason why you are able to live in this country with all your bags and riches is because you are continuing in the racist tactics of your ancestors who came to the Americas and stole the land from Native Indians, including the Aztecs and other tribes who we now know of today as Mexican and South American? And for the rest of you slamming against immigration, shame on you. You know very well just as I do that your anti-immigration viewpoints stem from racism. I will pray for you every night, because America has also historically been a country with God first right? I bet majority of you are not religious either. Hypocrites.

The president says this dream act will allow for then to contribute to the system in which their children get help. Food stamps medical,etc. However as longs as they pay for the paper they don’t have to use it. What is that. Id like that kind of option. To get my kbids benefits off of the system that I don’t contribute to. Oh that’s right my partially disabled self that can only wrk pt tine can afford even more taxes to help take care of children whose parents shouldn t be here. And its better cause they don’t even contribute bk. Let’s put the responsability of child raising bk to their hands. Let them take responsability for providing for their kids like the rest of us do.

      1) USA should allow a maximum of two dependents for tax purposes.

      2) The sum of all benefits you receive cannot be more than 10% above the poverty level.

      By the way I am an immigrant myself and whatever the una latina she should explain how those illegals can grow 5 kids at the same time! How can you give e decent education to 5 kids without being a millionaire is beyond me.

      If you want 5 kids it is your own problem not the taxpayers problem.

    SUPPORT AMERICANS OF ALL BACKGROUNDS, COLOR AND RELIGION. WE CANNOT KEEP FURNISHING EVERYBODY WHO ENTERS OUR COUNTRY ILLEGALLY, A RIGHT TO CITIZENSHIP.

    On every rural and national media where I draft my commentary or blogs, Americans write about their anger and frustration about illegal immigration but do nothing to curb this very troubling, financially draining issue? Hundreds of thousands of average Americans who are either citizens or green card holders have a lot to complain about, but remain silent when it comes to contacting directly their Senate or Congressional House members in Washington. These usually prudent people put up a merry dance on the internet or even in the print newspapers but do not contact their Representatives at either the federal or state level. Have they no sense of commitment to the honest immigrants, who had to hire an immigration attorney, pay fees, take a medical examination, and check any criminal backgrounds, while illegal aliens are smuggled in and use their children to live of the rest of us. How are they able to do this? By smuggling their unborn or ready to conceive babies into our country through a highly controversial border, or passing undetected immigration agents as tourists, visitors or students.

    Once inside our nation they claim instant citizenship for the child/children, which give them access to all the citizen rights. Hundreds of billions of dollars in your taxes in education, section 8 housing and health care and free baby deliveries. While citizens work to put food on the table, the illegal mothers are akin to parasites feeding of the host—the United States population. Once here they deliver as many babies as they can, because they know the federal, state and municipal government will support them. Programs included are TANF, (cash payments) SSI, general assistance, Food Stamps, WIC, free/subsidized school lunch, public/rent subsidized housing, and Medicaid. The biggest difference in program use is for Medicaid and food aid programs. For state governments, Medicaid is a particular worry because between one-third to one-half of the program’s costs are on average borne by state taxpayers for the growing number of children, either borne to illegal parents or smuggled across the border, or remaining undetected in the Mother’s womb.

    The traitors have drafted a law that will give these criminals all a Path to Citizenship, while honest immigrants sit at home in some foreign country sometimes for years waiting to be processed. The gang of 8, is about to sign a financial death warrant, because all these 11 million to 25 million plus illegal aliens, who can later sponsor their aging parents will need welfare, health care and a place to live. According to the reputable Conservative “Think Tank” giving a legitimized path to stay in America will cost us $2.4 TRILLION DOLLARS by the time they have been processed and assigned a Social Security number. Even with that breathless amount of money the hordes that enter America daily is costing the state’s $113 Billion dollars annually, that taxpayers are given the bill. The only winners in this mockery of our “Rule of Laws” are the profit takers, corporations, agriculture who pay nothing for their upkeep. Visas for top skilled workers should be tightly scrutinized and manual Guest labor should be regulated and must leave when their visa runs out. Right now both skilled workers are poorly officially organized and illegal Guest Workers not at all?

    When the illegal immigration is ignored as it has for decades, the “Cause and effect” is THE DREAM ACT, FAMILY CHAIN MIGRATION, SANCTUARY CITIES and millions of more illegal immigrants feeding off the working taxpayer.

    All those complainers better speak up now or this country is in even worse financial trouble, than we are now. Hundreds of thousands more can be expected to be climbing border fences, crossing the desert, lakes, rivers at the border in the hundreds of miles of nothing but some rusty barbed wire. They will arrive in large numbers on planes on passenger planes to disappear, until the new immigration amnesty is signed. April seems to be the deadline for any action from the halting this illegal immigration bill.

    Don’t insult the citizens and legal resident with your pro-illegal alien diatribe from this group of 8 traitors? After the so called immigration reform package, we should ALL be issued with a federal photo ID identification card with a thumb print and retinal scan and a real double layer fence as the 2006 Secure Fence Act imposed. Any person who believes America has been invaded by penniless, illiterate foreigners, where English is not the principle language any more. EVERY AMERICAN Should sign a petition against the Gang of Eight’s proposal and other nonchalant lawmakers who are in disagreement with the 23 million unemployed Americans at: NumberUSA If you really want your voice counted write a letter to your congressman (a screener will read it and tally up the letters ‘for’ and ‘against’) so you don’t have to fret about being persuasive since all the congressman hears is an amount of letters). Phone calls are better, but here you need to be rational and not an embarrassing tirade. YOU can also contact every Representative demanding no Amnesty and no Path to Citizenship at 202) 224-3121, the Central Washington switchboard. YOU THE CITIZEN VOTER/ LEGAL RESIDENT HAS MORE INFLUENCE OVER CONGRESS, IF THEY CALL AND DEMAND NO PATH TO CITIZENSHIP.

    IT IS TIME TO SPEAK UP OR SUFFER THE FINANCIAL AND IRREPAIRABLE CONSEQUENCES.

    This argument will exist for as long as this country exists. There’s no right and wrong here, at the end of the day, forget about politics, and think about every person as a human, just like you and your family.

      We aren’t talking about all immigrants. We welcome legal immigrants; our nation is built on them! The problem is when people come here illegally so that they can feed off of our too-generous government. Illegal immigrants are criminals, yes- the word ‘illegal’ is in the term! But, at the same time, like you said, they are people like us at the end of the day. I’d have no problem with them coming here if they would just work with the system. But they show major disrespect for our laws and our government by circumventing the rules, plus they are a drain on the country because all good, working, legal citizens are supporting them with taxes that they themselves don’t even pay.

      And they are 100% right because they are illegals…therefore they broke the law…and who brakes the law is a criminal.

      I am fed up with immigrants always complaining how bad is this country…you do not like you go somewhere else. I left the Netherlands (as an immigrant) because I did not share their socialist view of the world.

      I share the american view of it and I am happily here as an immigrant…till I get my citizenship.

      I work hard and pay all my taxes too but higher education screws a lot of people in this country. My son is at the very bottom of the ladder when it comes to financial aid for college even though he is smart and makes good grades. Being a white male in this country makes you a second class citizen when it comes to any kind of college financial aid or getting hired in corporate America. So I do understand what you’re talking about. I’m a single parent who never took any kind of public assistance. I worked extra jobs, never went on vacation and saved every dime I could to put him and his brother through school. So please understand we’re not a bunch of fat lazy people who have it good just because we are U.S. citizens.

      Yes..because of that and because their parents paid during their lifetime more than you paid in your years of being illegal.

      So please do us a favour. STFU.

    Illegal immigration is a subject i will be expanding upon in my own blogs to begin soon, i have to agree that there should be something done and soon. There are countries like my own for example (U.K) where any normal legal immigration should be limited purely because we are not the first port of call en-route we are the last. Ergo any EU agreed limits should be less dependent on size of country and how many other countries the immigrant may pass through in order to reach the destination, among other things. Illegal immigration causes problems on many levels not least is crime. This is because as an illegal it needs they have illegal means of accquiring money, be it for dodgy bosses or outright criminal acts like drugs or robbery. There are solutions but governments are being weak on this. At the least i can see no valid reason why any person opts for a country harder to get to unless they know a good thing when they see it, we as a country give more to illegal immigrants than our own, somethig that propogates racism. It is time we manage our borders fairly and effectvely

    I think you are one of the few who really cares about America.
    Why did they not put you on the group on the amensty panel ?
    We need to make sure any bill pasted they get no free bees, they
    need to be able to pay for their own benefits .
    If they use something they can not pay for they must work it off .
    Their are many programs the states could set up that would help the old and handicapped, they could even help someone to start factories, even if they where not totally profitable. As you would get something back as it is now we get nothing

    It is well agreed upon that illegal immigration needs to be controlled. But, who are illegal immigrants? Illegal immigrant has many definitions, including without papers. If America, really wants to name all of its illegal immigrants, we should start at home. In history it was the English settlers who came, killed, and conquered. The only people who truly have a voice on this matter are the Native Americans. America needs to reevaluate home first!

      The 14th Amendment is an antiquated law in that the people for whom this Amendment was DIRECTLY drafted are NO LONGER HERE!! This Amendment was and is pertaining directly to American slaves and THEIR children to which they gave birth. In addition, “subject to jurisdiction of…” as citizens of another country, our country can’t force you to go to war on our behalf because illegals/foreign nationals are not subject to the jusridiction of the United States. The 14th Amendment does not pertain to illegal aliens coming into our country illegally or overstaying visas and then dropping some babies. These babies, in actuality, are citizens of their mother’s country, not Americans.

      I, and all America lovers, will be glad when this matter is dealt with.

    The previous generations of immigrants in the U.S. who raised themselves up did so because they were not crippled with entitlements and enabling. They instead worked hard to become citizens and to prosper as Americans. The composition “Ms. Quixote Goes Country – Raised on the Marxist Frontier” by L.E. Vega, available on Amazon.com, may reveal some related truths that the media does not make available.

    Our government claims it cannot enforce immigration law because too many people break it. What if 30+ million people decide to ignore the Federal Income Tax Code? Will we be rewarded with amnesty?
    It’s time we make a stand for our country and our freedom, isn’t it? Could this be our peaceful revolution?
    Mass amnesty will result in a one-party system of government like they have in China.

    The SIX point plan of Ronn Pauls , makes all the sense inthe world, that’s why our so called leaders won’t act on it. They won’t even consider something that is right for Americans, only the poor illigals. Stop all the Bull- and do something that is right.

    My Immigration Reform:

    1)This ones a given. Secure Border. Secure Coast. Keep volume, control of immigration. An international record of everyone on mainland. yes, agreed. No cartels or MS13 . Or freaky people.
    2) Title of ‘illegallity’ will be deteriorated. Undocumented immigrants on mainland are to be qualified for a Work Permit, Visitors Permit, Residency, Alien Card, Visa, School Permit,or other type of documentation. It will be based on National and international criminal record, one. Time Spent in USA(years) and Education and profession of study, secondly. So all cartels, trouble making juveniles, MS13, stupid people, anarchists, unpatriotic, food-stamp swipers, check collectors far from qualification and documented for removal, incarceration or deportation. This leaves the majority of good people, soon to be college graduates and leaders of tomorrow’s America.
    3) No welfare checks or unemployment or bankruptcy provided to non citizens. No Affordable Care Act Privileges. An outside Medical insurance may be purchased.
    4)Numbered of qualified Immigrants to be spread toward Midwest, south or isolated areas assisting with affordable labor and low wage economic stimulation
    5) Immigrants up to this point WILL BE (most today ARE) taxpayers so they can use public services such as roads, schools, parks. They pay income tax, sales tax on purchases and especially in rural areas, add current to our capital.(Again, no Obama care)
    6) We need all the doctors, engineers, ranked military, upper and middle class skilled workers we can get. Deporting that talent is disgraceful and an act of all out hate and lack of common sense.
    Side note) I for one, Love paying taxes. We have lowest tax rate compared to most countries. We just need super rich to pay same(24%) or similar taxes(17 at least…)Or any taxes at all! (they take billions in bankruptcies but don’t pay 1% tax. ) Stop bus tax cuts and bring back manufacturing,( we’ll make our own ipods …. and theirs too!) and restore the economic era during the Clinton administration. This is the main reason Americans, the media and government begin to start pointing fingers at immigrants!

      Pardon the correction, Hector, but your arrogance has caused you to blunder on several points; however, I will address this one: AMERICA’S YOUTH ae the LEADERS OF TOMORROW!!! I, and most Americans, have not and will not give up on America’s youth.

      As for your entire comment: “No thanks. Let’s send everyone who did not come through legal channels home.” To offset the cost of deportations, we will create an environment of self-deportation/national self-relocation which will distribute the costs to the illegals, themselves as it should be. This environment will be created by removing the hogties on our immigration laws placed by our current and previous presidents and simply ENFORCING our laws!!! End birthright ‘citizenship’ and reduce chain migration – let’s be much more selective as to ‘who’ we let into our country for God’s sake!!

    Clarrisa above, “white people were not here first”.

    Clarissa, its just sad to read a comment like yours, as it is an indicator of extremely limited thinking, that is controlled by others.
    Did you know that the Christians populated Egypt before the moslems?
    Can or should they take it back now?

    The Saxons populated and controlled England before the Normans.
    Can or should the Saxons take it back now? it goes on and on.

    Did you know the Russians owned Alaska, and only leased to the USA for 100 years. And they want it back (we became squatters, and wont get out, even though the lease ran out 20 years ago).
    Can or should the Saxons take it back now?

    What your not bright enough to understand is, who do you want running your daily life?
    * English speaking Caucasians from Europe (the folks whom brought you, the bible, civil rights, trains, penicillin, and welfare payments),
    * or Mexican drug lords? I think we know your opinion.

    You know however, those Mexican drug lords wont pay your welfare also. Some people are so self destructive. Wait a sec.. if the Russians take Alaska back, and wont let in Mexicans… what to do?

    Better write your president Obama and the Bankers, and tell them to declare an expensive war to get Mexicans into Russia ASAP.

    the problem with giving citizenship to undocumented immigrants according to a comment I read online on a article on illegal immigration: I live in the suburbs of Houston, Tx, where illegals are everywhere you go. The majority I have spoken to over the last 10yrs (not the ones who came 20+ yrs ago-very different)have no intentions on becoming an American and most detest the notion. The majority, especially from Mexico come here to get all the free ‘wellfare’ the are privy to, and believe they are going to take their land back, aka Reconquista de Atzlan. They are taught this in Mexico, I have read it in their school books. Texas will soon end up like Mexifornia, and be bankrupt from the people on the dole, out numbering the working class. Nothing makes me angrier then when I see an illegal wheel up here cart overflowing with groceries, pulls out 3 or 4 Lone Star cards to get it all for free! She’s dressed in Tommy Hilfiger and the like, her kids wearing the same, they wheel the cart out and get into a brand new fully loaded $50 grand Suburban! The only solution to the problem is to cut off the welfare system to all undocumented people period! If they were in Mexico they wouldn’t receive anything, so why wouldn’t they come get the free stuff? This allows them to work cheaper, destroying the wage base, and if a white person gets laid off from their job, they can’t survive, if they can even find someone to hire them to do labor work, as they have zero chance of getting welfare.

      The elite Dem leaders have “allowed” this happen on purpose, and they are “using” humanity, they are not humanitarians.

      There are charts out there though demonstrating that people from Latin and South American are getting visas 20x that of over countries like the Ukraine and even China. You have to ask yourself why. Geography? I think it is because they will vote more proportionately for Dems.

      The number of visas should be given out evenly, because if we have a segment within our society 20% or higher they will not acclimate. That is not good for anyone in the USA, and makes you wonder if that is the goal of the elite as well so that we will more naturally accept turning into the dreaded North American Union. Keep an open mind instead of always assuming Republican ranka and file are the bad guys. They are portrayed as the bad guys and you all gobble that up.

    Very Big fan of Ron Paul but I wanna point out the problems with his argument here. I myself don’t support illegal immigration at all but Americans I ask you a question – do you even have the right to cry over illegal aliens coming into your country. lemme explain:

    Since, the world wars when America became a big player – your government hand in hand with the international business community has sucked the life blood out of other countries through treaties, international laws, supporting insurgencies and creating politocaly instabilities aaaaanddd undermining other countries efforts at trying to be self-reliant – all this just for monetary gain and power!!!….

    You guys were totally fine in the 60’s and 70’s when you were getting a piece of the action.

    This led to 2 things:
    1). Since other countries were looted and there was nothing else to loot the International business community turned on Americans itself cause they were the only prosperous people left. Understandable since business does not belong to a country – its all about money.

    2). The countries that your government was sucking the life blood out of guess what happened to them? They sank completely! And what option do the people living in those countries have? Well run to the only place that is left prosperous according to their standards whihc in this case also happens to be the country which was cause of their misery in the first place!

    So my american brothers and sisters sit back – relax and enjoy the show! Nothing unusual is happening – God has his own ways… and from what it seems as desperation increases more is coming!!

    But Karma is a bitch aint it??

      You expect people to stay on their shores and prosper, like England, France and Spain did right?

      And following your logic, you would then expect people to stay in their own country and help it prosper on its own, and not leave or emmigrate.

      Eureka, this would stop illegal immigration.

    Dear friends,

    I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People,
    a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your
    name to mine? If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by December 14, 2012,
    the White House will review it and respond!

    We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama
    Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets
    enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

    You can view and sign the petition here:

    http://wh.gov/XC4C

    Here’s some more information about this petition:

    Enforce the Existing Statutes regarding Illegal Entry into the
    United States to the Fullest Extent.

    As the very Tolerance of Illegal Immigrants has placed an Undue Burden upon the Taxpayers of this Nation;

    Whereas Jobs that rightfully belong to Citizens are being taken over by these Undocumented Workers who send the
    Majority of their wages out of the Country; and

    the very Constitutional Compliant Legislation regarding Illegal Entry is being Blatantly Ignored :

    We Pray that Relief be Granted.
    **********************************************************
    Please Log on, Sign th Petition, and Foward this e-mail to your Friends and Family Members. Thank You!
