I apologize for not writing a more explicit composition. Points one through eleven are to the regular readers of FR immigration issues, "well known history".

Just to clarify, I used the [sic] stuff to differentiate between the spelling errors in the qoutes and the spelling errors that are mine, (since I have a tendency to type too fast and hit reply too quickly.)

The purpose of raising these issues amongst the local council members is to polarize the dissent and gain media attention. I am aware that without employment for illegal aliens we would not have an immigration problem. If we cannot induce our politicians to remove the golden cookie programs then we must shame businesses that employ these lawbreakers.

How about something a little better targeted? Focus on the citizens we have now who are out of work, point out the displacement effect of cheap illegal labor. "Support American Workers" or some such type of campaign...? If you have to go to city hall or wherever to gain media attention, bringing that message is going to be a more effective "spin".

Where your method of "angry mob at City Hall complaining of illegal immigrants" will work is where it's more a crime issue, such as urban areas.

The problems vary throughout the different cities and counties. Some communities have higher than normal crime rates and/or unemployment rates. In other communities the increase in taxes for a new school that will primarily benefit the invading illegal alien youngsters may be the "Hot" issue. Others could have a medical care problem. H1-B Visa workers are the problem in many technological orientated communities.

People should bring up LOCAL ISSUES, not national issues.
