Mexicans came with some of the territory of the USA just like the Indians did. They are Americans. Thats what they tell me. As for illegal border crossers, Bush knows what they are costing this country.After being governor of Texas how could he not know. Can you imagine trying to navigate all the politics involved, all the special interest, Nov.elections and trying to stem the flow of illegals. He stated clearly that he is against Illegals and plans to tighen up the borders. The White House hears from me on a regular basis concerning this. I am all for putting pressure on all politicians concerning our borders. I am not for blaming one person.

And its not just hispanics. Have you looked around you lately. Immigration needs a big overhaul. People come here from all over and qualify for every social program you can think of and every kind of government grant. There are not enough taxpayers to pay for it all. We need to start asking for all our money back if the government does not put us(tax payers) first since dipping into our pockets is all the politicians want to do.

Try getting your congress person to defund this group.

Congress is still giving them our money. And bragging about it.

Actions speak lauder than words.What he 'states' is irrelevant. You're right he know what they are costing us but clearly cheap labor a Mexican votes are more important to him. He might as well be a Mexican agent.

I'm not blaming one person. I said that if you want to alleviate this problem never ever vote for a politician from on of the Mexican states ; CA TX NM AZ. They will never even begin to fix this problem. You might as well ask Mexico to fix it.

A few Mexicans came with some of the territory , very few. They mostly went home after we took that part of America because they had no choice. It's time to do that again. 99.99% of them are here because they or their ancestors came here illegally.

They buy votes with our money and they raise campain contributions by paying out our money to the people that bribe them with soft money. They aren't going to stop until we stop voting for people that do that.

I stil hope you take the time to consistantly contact your congressmen and the White House concerning this.Getting 99% out of this country is rather unrealistic without a blood bath. A few days ago I heard some idiot say that the reason most hispanics don't use banks and carry so much cash is they don't trust the banking system. What a crock.

How about Letting GW and his boys have a little time
to fortify the Borders with the new Homeland Security
measures he just received from the Hill.

The Reserves have been placed on notice of a large
call up and that will free up the man power.

Then once we have that under control, I have reason to believe that the Illegals that are rounded up over the next year and a half will be ousted.

Lets not start a riot before the troops are in place.

Ops4 God Bless America!

That's a good point! That might work for a while, but what happens if the US turns into another country where only the straight-white xxx are a minority? Our government could very well be controlled by people from a third-world who runs this country (whatever it might be at that time) the way they are use to? Paranoid thinking? Maybe! But many people in the US never thought 9-11 could have happened.

politicians don't care what you say anymore than voters should care what they say. They only care how you vote just like voters should only care how they vote.

The only way the voters are going to start to correct this problem is by not voting for anyone that doesn't DO something to stem the tide of illegals.

Noo one from the Mexican states of CA TX AZ or NM are going to ever do anything meaningful to fix this.

The only way to fix it and still somtimes vote for people from the Mexican states is to give them large soft money contributions. That's not going to happen from private individuals. That's not going to happen from companies either. We just can't vote for them until they get the message. That would only take one election cycle.

I understand that I'm being a too strident about sending them home again. That's not going to happen either. plenty of them have become Americans over the years. I wouldn't send them back even if I could but I would send home the 20 million or so that have come over recently.

People wouldn't tolerate it. Once one state had been lost (probably California will be first), secessionists everywhere of every stripe would be greatly emboldened, and US would fragment into several nations, just as the Roman empire eventually did.

The fragmentation would almost certainly occur along ethnic lines; "white" nations would probably arise in the Pacific Northwest and the mountainous, still-heavily-white regions of the old Confederacy. Possibly a Mormon theocracy would arise in Utah.

The lowland South would probably see a black nation, and the native Hawaiians have been talking about independence for some time now. And, of course, Mexico would probably regain much of the Southwest.

Border warfare would be very ugly. Just think Balkans on a continent wide scale. Possibly the worst of it would be Utah vs Aztlan, as the Mormons are (a) demographically expanding, unlike most whites, (b) very, very heavily armed, and (c) living on a piece of land that the Reconquistadores would very much like to reincorporate into Mexico.

Pray it doesn't happen. But brace yourself. Liberal race baiting may yet bring it about.

If no one from Mexican states is going to fix this why would anyone from the other states do any better. What would make it a real issue to them? What makes you so sure non mexican state candidates would do any better. They all promise anything to get elected.

Because they don't have as many Mexicans in their state. In the mexican states politicians can't get the nomination without doing what Mexicans want. They are the swing voters because they are conservative in family values yet liberal on socialism. Even thought that vote mostly democrat now Republicans see the future and are kissing Mexican booty big time. Both parties will do whatever the Mexicans want them to do.

CA is even giving undocumented illegals ( Mexican only ) drivers licences now. CA TX NM and AZ are lost to the USA.

To get them back we need politicians from both parties from the other 46 states to do battle with the politicians from the Mexican states. That is the only way we are going to start defending our border again.

If that were allowed we would have millions of volunteers out there doing just that. I'd be one of them.

Unfortunately with a citizens arrest you can't even touch the person that you are supposedly arresting anymore.

Pretty stupid huh ?

I think you will have to add a few more states to your Mexican catagory. I have heard stories about Ark, OK, LA, FL, ect......Are these so called Mex states not to want representation since they are a lost cause? I am in Texas, does that make me no concern of the rest of the nation? What makes you think non Mex state candidates give a hoot about illegas? Whats it to them?If we do like you say then no one will fix the problem. Now get on your soapbox and explain this.

Because our laws ssay that if we as citizens arrest someone , we must turn them over to our LEO's for trial. We do have the power ot arrest but not the power to be judge and jury.

You might better quit buying vegetables.

Didn't our mothers and grandmothers can vegetables when we were little? (presuming you are over 50)We can now by canned vegetables all winter long. Fresh salad isn't a must in February.

The Mexican states wont do anything. It will only get worse if they get their way.

The only way the Mexican states will do anything is if people stop voting for candidates that wont do anything to solve the problem. Both republican and democrats in those states have proven over and over again that they will try to pry the border open even more and give the illegals legal status.

I hope that the non-Mexican states get the message before it's too late but I doubt it. You're probably right about them not caring either but if we vote for anyone from the Mexican states then we can be sure that nothing will get done.

Maybe it depends on the State. When I was a security guard in CA we were taught that we could only make citizens arrests because private security guards have no power other than a regular citizen.
Then to my surprise we were taught that it is illegal for us to use any force accept to defend ourselves or others. We could not hold them until police arrived unless they were violent. We could only call the police and wait for them. Of Course we completely ignored that rule by always saying that they appeared to be violent.

Maybe we need lobbyist to handle this. I know I give a lot to NRA. I could give more to a Pro American Anti Illegal Organization. That seems to be the only way to have a strong voice. You have to be careful not to make these things look racist. I would just like to see the laws we already have enforced.It would be a start.

Great I idea.lets just wait and see what happens. I am just trying to get a handle on Stalins "don't elect anyone from a border state" train of thought. It seems to me that a really ticked off border state candidate is just the ticket. And of course we all have to be just a little realistic like our president. I am hoping without Gridlock Daschle things will move a little faster.

That's a good idea. We need a PAC that can lobby pay soft money bribes and run TV commercials. You know that they would get sued out of existence for seeming to be racist though.

Enforcing the laws is the responsibility of the executive branch. With a Republican in the Waite house our voice should be heard with more power. Unfortunately he is from a Mexican state. If Republicans saw a 5% fluctuation among core republicans they would do something immediately.

Blind loyally even when your representatives are clea going against the best interests of the nation is a bad thing. This issue is vital to national security and well being. If Bush sees it as an issue that he's got to do something about or loose 5% of Republicans he would tighten the border tomorrow.

If he sees soft money that would other wise be going to him being used to run ads against his kiss Mexican booty policy that policy would change overnight.

"It's only when we don't mean to win that we fail to do so."

These really are words of wisdom, I hope you know. If only we as a people would regain that will to win; the will to be great and do great things.

I heard a quote on tv once that characterizes the American spirit - it is: 'One characteristic of a true American is where he is able to take an idea from the conception stage - with no help- and by the seat of his pants with trials and tribulations somehow make it work.' That's not exact but pretty close.

Sorry to get off topic, but this is exactly why Ronald Reagan was a great president. He gave us a sense of possibilities; he instilled in us the will to win.

Oh yes...it's called "vision" and "determination". The American spirit is comprised of both. Thanks for your observations. I think the subject deserves some "off-topic" time. :)

Well I am for it. I do get replies Bush concerning this. He is going to add 2,000 more agents and new equipment and there has been mention of national gaurd to kick it off.Bush says he does not want illegals and people should not break our laws. I hope everyone will contact the White House and let the President know what they think. I have sent the articles and even a few threads from chats concerning illegals & immegration and the problem it is causing this country.There are other issues I would rather work on but this is the most important. Its not just the security of the country that is at stake. It is dragging the quality of life in this country down to 3rd world status,depleting our resources and taking a lot out of my pocket book. It increases the crime rate and does great damage to the quality of education in this country. Getting conquered from within is just as bad as terrorism. In fact I consider it terrorism.

What if on the way to our LEO's I decided to buy a pack of smokes, in say, Mexico, then I have a change of heart and let the guy go

If you want a good example of the need for a stronger immigration policy that the libs will understand, suggest to them that the Indians (Native Americans to those of you in Rio Linda)would have faired much better had they had a strong immigration policy as far back as the 1400's.
