Americans Taking Action Against Illegal Immigration State-by-State
Magic City Morning Star ^ | 12/30/2004 | Jan Herron

Posted on 12/30/2004 1:24:14 PM PST by nanak

The recent action by Arizona citizens that passed legislation allowing that state to block taxpayer services to illegal aliens was long over due. I applaud their efforts and endless work. The voters of Arizona sent the perfect message: Foreigners who break into the US illegally don't receive freebies from Arizona citizens. They will be reported and deported. The loud and clear message sent by Arizona taxpayers means the money in their wallets will no longer subsidize border jumpers. EVERY STATE in the country needs to implement their own initiative and send out a clear warning that their "Bank of Entitlements" will no longer fund illegal aliens.

Throughout this country, complaints grow on a daily basis. Our shopping malls and parking lots explode with illegal aliens who dump garbage, are drunk and urinate in public while seeking work "Americans won't do" (which is known as the big lie created by corporate crooks). This creates a fearful situation that turns citizens away from entering businesses they once supported. Our hospitals bankrupt, our schools cascade into overrun classrooms and unemployment bursts at the seams in unemployment lines.

EVERY STATE must consider the consequences of this massive invasion by illegals. Why? The line never ends. According to Time Magazine's September 12, 2004 issue, "Who Left the Door Open?" three million jumped U.S. borders in 2004. More are expected in 2005. It is imperative for ALL STATES to follow Arizona's lead in denying services to these lawbreakers. Contact your state legislators and hold their feet to the fire. Demand your U.S. House representative join the Immigration Reform Caucus. Further, any elected official who supports President Bush's amnesty legislation needs to be reminded that citizens will no longer tolerate deviation from the truth regarding his "guest worker" sham.

We must bypass national politicians and bring issues before the voters. Look for numerous groups, including Georgians for Immigration Reform and Defend Colorado Now -- currently pursuing effective action.

Recently, Senators Kennedy and McCain joined forces to "work" the illegal alien problem. Worse, their contemporaries assist them in perpetuating their insidious propaganda that misinforms and misleads Americans. We must expose government mismanagement and corruption. Unfortunately, career politicians prolong this national crisis. Greedy elected officials need to be reckoned with as they have been hijacked by lobbyists. We must get to the bottom of the cesspool since our federal government offers little, if any, help. We must start at the local government level and manage "OUR" money.

It's time our elected officials represent "We the People." They swore on the Bible to uphold the Constitution and serve American citizens. Nowhere did it say they serve illegal aliens from other countries over American citizens. It's time they follow through on their sacred trust as a majority of Americans are "mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore."

I have a question: Why aren't the Demonrats and their fellow travelers crying out about how the illegal aliens are being "exploited" by low wages? They just stand by and allow the minimum-wage law, which they advocate, to be violated.

--if we're going to go after the "corporate crooks", let's also see that an employer can refuse to hire anybody that can't prove citizenship and further reform welfare to ensure that any able-bodied recipient has to go to work--

Yeah, pretty much. But unfortunately, in this case, it is true.

The President I voted for is taking an open borders stance that places a tremendous economic burden on state and county facilities, dilutes our culture and compromises our sovereignty.

I don't hate the president. I just hate his stance on this issue.

I held my tounge during the election for fear of giving aid and comfort to the Democrats. But now that we've won...I am free to criticize this idiotic and destructive policy of being the dumping ground for the 3rd world.

Well you know you're going to get flamed when you post stuff like that, although I'm always surprised at the number of joiners up.

I'm all for everyone expressing their frank political views, but unfortunately not many on FR have the stomach for it.

I agree EVERY state needs to do the exact same thing as Arizona did!! Gov Perry, if he wants to be reelected needs to do the exact same thing for Texas. Texas voters would vote for this 100%. After all we are a red state.

I still believe this country is very compassionate and the credo still applies.

BUT, as professor Victor Davis Hanson (not a racist xenophobe or right wing wacko) has pointed out, there is a difference now. This crop of immigrants don't want to become Americans as prior generations once did. They don't want to assimilate and will balkanize this country and fracture the culture.

If we could assure only "A" students then I would be cool with that but the fact is we don't limit it that way.

The cartoon is a distorted juxtaposition and a lie.

Look, I don't mean to be rude but, NSDT (No S**t Dick Tracy) of course it is my opinion this blog encourages the unwashed masses to express their views on the posted articles.

In this case that opinion happens to be spot on.

I take no pleasure in being correct, I hope the Prez. grows a pair on this issue and I am proven wrong.

Yes it is, and check out where the "cartoon" links to.

What is CADENA? As a formal movement, CADENA began with a moment of realization on a high school campus in the state of Arizona approximately one year ago. A director of a program that serves English language learners had summoned two students to her office. Her purpose was to correct misbehavior, let the students know that their academic success was important, and generally motivate them to apply themselves.

They listened to her with a somewhat sullen endurance, until she asked them why they thought she was talking to them this way. When there was no response, she told them, "Because you are important. We care about you; about your future."

This was too much for one of the students. "No you don't!" he shouted. " Somos pobres mexicanos. (We are poor Mexicans.) No one cares about us. Why should we try? If we get good grades and graduate, we don't have money for college."

Here the director tried to interject, "But if you have good grades, you can get scholarships or loans."

"No we can't. We can't even get a job or a driver's license." The second student chimed in to say that a friend of his was paying his way through community college and had tried to get a job at Circle K, but was turned down for lack of a social security number. "Even if he graduates from college, he can't get a job at Circle K," the student added bitterly.

CADENA

I looked at CADENA's endorsements and I seen that the AFL-CIO is on that list. I have to wonder if they give money to these illegal students. If so, more of my dues money to pay for the destruction of our borders.

Dream on, ain't gonna happen. The voter in states don't want to pay the "social" costs of illegals. Heck, I don't want to pay the "social" costs of legals, except for punishing criminals. That aside, voters don't consider illegal immigration itself a problem, because they keep hiring them, and illegal immigration is not a big issue for voters of federal representatives.

This problem has been going on for decades. If you think there will be mass roundups and deportations, you are living in a dream world. Face reality, and consider other options. President Bush will win on this issue.

W needs to shut our borders down tighter than a brick *hit house. Illegals are coming out of the woodwork. Our country can't handle for much longer the burden of so many who won't assimilate into American society.

Things are already staring to come apart. The medical system is broke, I see a raise in taxes over the horizon on that one.

Schools are over crowded. Our welfare system.....heaven save us from our welfare system.

Doesn't look like an actual endorsement, more like "guilty by association". But that union would just love to add 9 to 15 million to it's rank and file.

An employer doesn't need to give a reason to refuse to hire anyone. An employer is already free to not hire just about anyone he/she pleases. Even legitimate cases of discrimination (legally legitimate) are almost impossible to prove when it's over hiring.
