    Yes, I just an email stating that.

    Did you see where it will raise the number of foreign workers by three times the current number of 66,000.

    Lawn care workers, timber workers, construction workers, maid, housekeepers an stable workers.
    All these have a high unemployment, from 11% on down.
    Both of my senators voted for it.

    According to Fair
    Sen Larry Craig's Ag Jobs amnesty amendment did not get the 60 votes needed for cloture an was rejected by a vote of 53 to 45 against.
    Senator Chambliss/Kyl amendment which also would have expanded the H02A agricultural guestworker program but would not have provided current illegal aliens with a path to citizenship was rejected by a vote of 21yeas-77nays

    There still is nothing on the Mikulski-Gregg amendment , it needs 60 No votes on it too. If there are fewer than 60 votes for cloture, there is a strong sense that the amendment will be withdrawn an we will have won. NumbersUSa source.

    I really think that commercials work the best. I know they are expensive.

    If a person could get all the anti immigration folks an organizations to come together under one roof an donate to doing this it might work. One thing about commericals, you can show them any time of the day. I really believe that would get the message out better than any other way.

    Take every thing off the tapes, people have all taken, from garbage to every thing else an condense it into a couple different commericals.

    The FTAA has to be signed by the end of January. If it is signed we will be made to give up some segments of our Constitution. Yes, it is a free trade agreement. I believe it also states in the trade agreement, there will be no borders between Mexico an Canada

    So we are in dangerous times, we are now an import nation,because of the outsourcing, we are now not an export nation.

    So if we go into a recession it will not be good.

    The man that plays Jesus, was raised in Mt Veronon, Wash. My Town. HIs folks still live here.
    He said, he had a protective mat on his back to take care of the whip, but several times the guys striking him missed, and he felt the whole brunt of the whip striking him. He said the pain took his breath away, he could not breathe. He dislocated his shoulder, packing the cross, which weighed 150 pounds. He took a beating doing the movie, but was glad he got the chance to portray Jesus.
    He is a devout Catholic, Mary is a Romanian Jew.

    ok this is what they said
    But even death to a bill by the deadline could lurch back to life like the villain in a scarey movie, if the right deal is struck. Any bill can be revived at any time if it is deemed necessary to implememnt the budget.{I cannot see how the id card would implement the budget} Dead bills could also be reincarnated as amendments to related measures

    All my bills are dead but my hopes are still alive, said senate minority leader Lisa Brown, D Spokane

    On the other hand many bills that survived the cutoff deadline may look alive, but they are really dead bills walking because there is no chance the other chamber will pass them.

    One example is the senate R bill to freeze the minimum wage during periods of high unemployment-fated for deep freeze in the house. Like wise the house D plan to authorize prescripton drugs purchases from Canada will meet a silent and swift death in the Senate.

    These are not my words, they are the reportors. lol

That is when they found the "gernade" which has turned out to be a paper weight filled with sand, looks like a grenade. lol

    According to the paper tonite, if this did not pass by 5pm, it is dead because the dead line for passing any bill in the house or senate was 5pm today.
    I did not see this bill listed in the paper, but they do not have the lastest so will have to wait and see.

    I would like to ask every one to find all the articles on immigration, illegals, go to the url, and send the whole article to every senator, rep from your area, and the President.

    I always add all the newspapers, tv stations in the cc, so all of the above can see where the article is headed. lol

    I just heard on the local news, out of Seattle, that if you have your income tax prepared by an accountant, ask the accountant if they send your income tax return to a company over seas, such as India to be prepared? India was the only country mentioned, but that does not mean they are sent to an other country, another plus for out sourcing. Your identity could be stolen, is what the news reporter said.
    This seams to be the normal way any more for your taxes to be done.

    She was not going into Canada, she was coming into the US.
    They found a gernade in the glove box, she was headed to Vancouver Washington. The car was her husbands, and he is in the service, so they are checking it out, but the border opened up about 1 hour after it was closed.

    Drivers licenses for illegals.

    Sorry but the state has already passed a bill allowing illegals to have drivers license, about 3 or 4 months ago. It was a little notice in my local newspaper. Or at least I am sure that is what it meant.

    I would say it is so, mainly because I went in last week to get my drivers license renewed. There was one examiner that spoke spanish all the time, even calling out the numbers you need to get a place in line. All the Spanish speaking people went to this counter, the rest of us went to the counters that the examiner spoke English.
    I would say two thirds of the people were HIspnaic, not one word of English did I hear from them, only spanish.

    I asked the guy next to me how they could get a drivers license if they could not speak English, and he said 'if they cannot speak english they should not be able to get a drivers license.'

    At the end of the row in front of us there was a Mexican woman who turned around and gave us a dirty look, and mouthed something, like shut up. He said I am sure if you went to Mexico they would have a separate line for the english speaking. He said they are just taking the jobs our kids use to do, and I agreeded with him. They called the Mexican gals number, she got up and charged back to where we were and said " you shut up!' He looked at her and told her to shut up and sit down. They are getting bolder by the day, demanding more every day, and one of these days, they will control the whole country. But who in the heck in our government gives a big rats a--, very few see the danger of unlimited immigration, or if they do, they ignore it, hastening the globilazion of the Americas'

    After sitting 2 hours in the Drivers Licensing Agency yesterday, I seen more of it.

    The state of Wash "quietly passed a bill to allow illegals to have drivers license" I have been trying to find it all morning to see who drew the bill up and who signed it. I cannot find it. This was about 5-6 weeks ago.

    Two thirds there were Hispantics. NO English spoken only Spanish. I asked this guy sitting by me, "How can they get drivers license if they cannot speak English?"

    He said " very loudly, If they cannot speak English, they should not be able to get a drivers license"
    There was a gal sitting in the row ahead of us, on the end seat, that turned and said something that we could not understand.
    When her number was called, she got up, came around her row to where we were and looked at us and said "SHUT UP'

    He looked her in the eye and said "You shut up and Sit down"
    Lord I thought I was in the middle of a war. lol

    There was one examiner that only called the numbers in Spanish, and talked to every one that went up for license in Spanish. She took care of all the Hispantics that were in there, the other two took care of the English Speaking Americans.

    The fact you say "I am an American" is what makes you one of us, we are Americans also.
    This new wave of illegals, have an attitude, like we are better than you. They are HIspantic first, last and always.
    They are arrogant, demanding, and have not an ounce of manners.

    It makes me wonder why, once they are here, they demand services they do not have the guts to demand of their own government.

    Thanks for being a proud American, and proud to say it.

    Have any of you read the book " The Clash of Civilization and Remaking the World Order". by Samuel Huntington?

    I think it is the best explantion for letting this happen.
    It tells how the Globalists plan to slowly as not to alarm the ordinary citizen, combine the countries from Canada to South America into one union with no borders somewhat like the European Union. For this to happen the wealthier countries like the US and Canada must be down graded.

    What better way to reduce the standard of living than to allow massive influx of illegals from south of the border.
    By the amount of sheer numbers they will dramatically change America, Canadas' economy, culture and ethics.

    That is the only sane reason I can come up to explain why this is allowed to go on.

    I wonder how many pork bills he voted for, money that could have gone to the local police to take care of the problem he mentions.

    Back when I first voted, 1950, when the democrats were for the working class, and republicans were for the rich.

    After the environmentalists took over the democratic party, the republicans were more for property rights, and every thing the environmentalists wanted to destroy.

    That is when a lot left the Democrat party and voted republican, and have done so ever since.

    And I never heard Bush say he was for erasing the borders of the United States when he was campaigning.
    On his fathers 75th birthday, he stated " I believe I will live long enough to see the globalization of the Americas" which is what this pandering to Mexico is all about.

    To All

    Why won't you help us call, write, and fax the president, senate and house, asking them not to vote or pass any immigration law, until they enforce the Federal Immigration Laws of the United States, that is the law now.

    If the Senate and Congress get enough flack, they will hesitate to pass any thing pertaining to immigration.

    Now I understand why in, the last three years, we have been invaded from the south and north.
    Do you know what is happening on the border right now, since he mentioned guest worker status for illegals?

    I do not live in Calif, but my heart breaks for what they have endured for the last few years, because no one else had a problem, an ignored their problem with illegals.

    Do you know that the State of Calif could build a 16 room school, every day, 7 days a week, for 5 years and still be short school rooms?
