"We need immigration reform. We need it for ourselves, our children, and every one of our families,"said Veronica Chavez, a field worker who addressed the audience before Gutierrez.

Luis Gutierrez, a prominent figure in the national movement for immigration reform, fired up a Salinas crowd Sunday morning with his remarks about the need for legalizing undocumented workers.

“I want to ask all of you to do our part and attend the march so we stop being afraid.”

There’s no reason to be afraid if you are obeying and respecting current immigration laws.

Does this joker represent the people of his district in Illinois, or some illegal farm-workers in California?

(This is a rhetorical question!!)

I find it impossible to believe anyone is getting deported at all. ICE has completely stopped doing anything remotely close to deporting people

"We need immigration reform."

About as bad as we need a new, incurable STD.

BREAKING THE LAW WITH OUR TAXES The federal agency----U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service----oversees “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”.....the cockamamie program devised by Obama to save his legacy. This jerkoff program defies US law to prevent deportations of illegal aliens (so they can vote). Power-mad Obama needs those votes to takeover the US govt.

REFERENCE Chris Crane, president of the 7,000-member union---the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council---has filed a lawsuit against DHS Secy Janet Napolitano, challenging Obama's crazy non-deportation policies that make most illegal immigrants ineligible for deportation — policies that ICE agents say force them to ignore their own sworn duty to uphold US law.

NOTE WELL At the recent Senate hearing on vote-crazed Dem's "immigration reform," Mr. Crane was forced to testify alongside an illegal immigrant vote-crazed Senate Democrats called in to testify.

Under legacy-obsessed Obama's suck-up, illegal aliens are a low priority for deportation (b/c they each cast several votes for vote-crazed Democrats---using multiple identities).

MASSIVE LAW-BREAKING ON CAPITOL HILL---EXPOSE THE TAX-EXEMPTS (1) The National Association of Latino Electoral and Appointed Officials, (2) La Raza, (3) Voto Latino, (4) The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, (5) state Hispanic Federations,(6) latino PAC's, etc ,etc, etc (all pushing free-for-all amnesty).

===============================================

REFERENCE These shocking quotes are taken directly from A LA Raza textbook "Occupied America" (pg. 167): “Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (also known as the Plan of San Diego). LA Raza school textbook chapter from “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and if worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

La Raza books also talk about the need for the govt of Mexico to re-take seven states in SW United States. so that the Southwest USA would become a Chicano nation. And judging by Ramos' activities---La Raza is establishing a beachhead in NJ.

YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to "La Raza charter schools" via the US Dept of Education grants. These charter schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce the teaching of murdering Americans and latino violence, the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.

==================================================

Forget vote-crazed politicians doing something about ntl security threats to Americans. We need exposure of all of anti-American activities on Capit5ol Hill.......and the scope and dimenson of using govt monies to undermine US ntl security and the safety of Americans.

Collusion and conspiracy is at work here----we need to see Gutierrez's electronic and paper correspondence and his bank recors---we need to know who is taking orders from foreign countries to undermine the US govt.

NUMBER ONE---LET'S LOOK AT THE TAX-EXEMPTS (1) The National Association of Latino Electoral and Appointed Officials, (2) La Raza, (3) Voto Latino, (4) The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, (5) state Hispanic Federations,(6) latino PAC's, etc ,etc, etc (all pushing free-for-all amnesty).

These people need to come clean WRT quid pro quo sub deals made with foreign governments. We need to see their financial records-- copies of (1) checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) bank account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, employment contracts, loan agreements, (8) any other books or records.

RE :”After all this time and all this discussion, can you believe there are those who still insist the the gang of 8 plan is NOT amnesty???”

Especially here, well Rub like McCain+Gaham talks out of both sides of his mouth on this.

They agreed to citizenship w Dems BEFORE the start of negotiations, now he is claiming he wants it almost impossible to get to take ~ 10 years.

Looks like ‘logical mi’ got plenty of replies to that comment.

Many in the GOP are terrified now, I keep saying it. The current GOP cannot offer what Prius claims the RNC will. Sure GWB reached out with borrowed $$$$ and he won re-election (w some Hispanic votes) but it backfired in his second term as the Housing deck of cards fell down, and Iraq fell apart and required more and more, and the GOP amnesty push resulted in GOP civil war..

Hispanics dont want tax cuts for those making billions paired with cuts in spending they love. This is silly. They overwhelmingly support O-care.

Does anybody really have a clue what Amnesty will do to this country ..??

There are supposed to be about 11 million illegals here now, 9 million of whom are voting age.

If all 9 million of them vote democrat .. the repubs will no longer exist. They will never win elections again, nor will they retain any power.

Why else would the dems be so insistant that the repubs sign on to citizenship for illegals ..?????????

REPUBS - are we really that dumb ..????????? I know I’m not .. but I’m not so sure about you .. you all seem too eager to bow and scrape to the dems.
