The poll is now showing 19 people who claim that they would be willing to sponsor or financially help illegals in some way.

I'm going to ask the question again of those who have responded in this way...

Have you contacted the proper authorities or an illegal immigrant and set into motion what you've claimed you are happy and willing to do? Are you the typical bleeding heart liberal who is all bluster and no action, or have you actually HONORED your words?

I actively back up my words and stance by notifying the proper authorities when I witness suspected illegal immigrant activity. I participate in political action groups who protest, march and send faxes/letters/emails to representatives.

Can you say the same? Come on, now, how many illegals have you helped through sponsorship or funding since you've responded to the poll?

How do you know who responded and how they answered?...

You're trying a self-fulfilling poll...

"Of the few soldiers that survived the long battle after an ambush, later interviews revealed they had prayed to God to rescue them - Thus it was their faith that saved them, over their comrades that died..."

Find the logical break...

The poll shows responses, just not by who. I just find it interesting that they were happy to respond to the poll, yet they do not want to come forward and identify themselves and state what they have done to back up their responses. Too ashamed, maybe?

Some pro-illegals in here like to dance around the issue. They claim they aren't pro-illegal but their posts say otherwise. To me if you want amnesty for any of them or are making any excuses for them then you are a pro-illegal. My bet is that they aren't willing to be personally financially responsible for any of them either when push comes to shove. They are bleeding hearts and ethnocentrics just as long as it doesn't impact their wallets. The deal is making them understand that we "all" have already been impacted in our wallets and it will continue unless we put a stop to it.

I am inclined to agree with your comments

On Netflix instant streaming there is a documentary show called the Vice Guide to Travel. The episode I watched last night explored an "Illegal Border Crossing Park" where people can go and experience first-hand (for 20 US dollars or something like 230 pesos...) what it is like to illegally cross the US/Mexico border. They also interviewed families and individuals who have or who do regularly cross the border illegally - even a pregnant mother with her two small daughters.

The show also explored how many Mexican's also want the border crossings to stop. They want Mexican's to stay in Mexico and make it a better place. Anyway - here's the link:

Illegal Border Crossing Park - The Vice Guide to Travel | VBS.TV (http://www.vbs.tv/watch/the-vice-guide-to-travel/illegal-border-crossing-park - broken link)

On that website if you type "illegal immigrants" or "border crossing" and the like into the search bar (top right of the home page) you'll find blogs and other stories done on the issue.

Default dwiTo the Mayor, Police Chief and Town Manager of Saint. Pauls, North Carolina. I,am writing you to let you know, that

To the Mayor, Police Chief and Town Manager of Saint. Pauls, North Carolina. I,am writing you to let you know, that after three years of sending dozens of certified letters to numerous state and federal agencies to include the US Senate; State of NC, Department of Justice; NC State Highway Patrol and many other State and Federal agency's. I even had the opportunity to have a one on one meeting with Congressman Mike McIntyre. In these certified letters I included criminal charge sheets for foreign nationals that committed offenses like DWI and auto accidents that caused serious injury. I'm very proud to say that something has finally been done about the potential deadly problem that I was trying to get addressed. I have had three Law Enforcement officers come into my store and look me in the eye and thank me for for all the efforts that contributed to the change in the handling of foreign nationals involving motor vehicles. To know, now that after all my efforts, when a foreign national is removed from a 3000 pound weapon for DWI or a felony here in Saint Pauls they are going be detained until they can be positively identified. The days of the past are gone, foreign nationals are no longer allowed to only pay their cash bail and disappear without ever being positively identified and never show up for their scheduled court date, and to only assume another identity and go back to driving drunk and endangering innocent peoples lives. I only can wonder to how many innocent people in the local area have been killed or seriously injured by a foreign national who was allowed to bail out from a previous offense and never be positively identified to turn around and go right back out and drive drunk. We will never know!!
I think it is a shame that it took someone like me with only a 10th grade education to see the problem here and get something done about it. In my meeting with Congressman McIntyre i said to him that I think that the serving in the Marines messed up my thought process, I was lead to believe that the Government was here to protect and serve the citizens, Congressman McIntyre said he had to agree with me. I believe, that anyone in the Saint Pauls government that had the power to do something about this just chose not to try or even try to address the issue at a higher level should seek employment in another field, because you are not here to protect and serve.
In the twelve years that I have been in this area, I have had several officers come in my store and complain about the problem. Up until 2008, NC DMV handed out drivers licenses like candy. The DMV offices were under orders from Wayne Hurdder, who sent memo's out to all of the states DMV's offices to not question the documents that the foreign nationals provided to get a drivers license. Hurdder who has since been let go from his position at the DMV. In many cases it was obvious that the documents that foreign nationals provided were bogus and bought for $1500-$2400. Now that DMV checks and scrutinize the documents provided to renew or get a new drivers license the foreign nationals just drive with out a license. In a one week period the Saint Pauls blotter showed that in the city there were 38 citations issued for "no operator license" in a population of 1900. I suggested to the DMV that something has to be done for the ones that they had already issued license to, they have families and jobs so that they can legally drive. Their has to be an answer here somewhere, an answer that will positively identify foreign nationals, and allow for holding them accountable for there actions while operating a motor vehicle.

Thank you for your time,
Nick Scavo
