More threats from supporters of scofflaws. So, the "Latino community" won't accept a measure intended to identify illegal aliens working in this country to ensure only legal workers are being employed. And, will not vote for Obama if he signs a law making it mandatory for all employers. Well, that certainly speaks volumes.

Funny, I thought Latinos were also Americans, and were also being displaced by illegal workers. Why on earth would they not want illegal employment to end?

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) warned President Barack Obama on Tuesday that Latinos will not regard as “acceptable” a move to make the E-Verify system of checking prospective employees’ immigration status mandatory for all U.S. firms, as urged by Republicans.

“The president’s Hispanic advisors must make him understand that signing such a proposal before the 2012 elections is not acceptable to the Latino community,” the congressman said, stressing the importance of the Hispanic vote for Obama’s reelection

It must be tough for Guitterrez seeing the goal that he has worked so tirelessly for, become more out of reach every passing day.

He has notions of grandeur if he thinks he speaks for all or even the majority of Hispanics.

How true. Gutierrez is simply an illegal alien peddler/profiteer, similar to the former slave traders. By NO means, does he speak for all Hispanics.

Well, if they won't accept it they can immigrate to latino countries that don't use e-verify.

Let them live and work there.

The gall of some people...!!!

The sheer arrogance of the Latino community continues to amaze me. If that isn't outright stating that they think they are special and that their illegal counterparts should be above our laws then I don't know what does.

I like how when I point out that the current immigration laws being enacted need to be changed and bring up women's suffrage and slavery as examples of other laws that need to be changed and get a whole onslaught of "omg he's comparing us to racists in slave days! That's so different! These people are hardly slaves!!!"

Then I read this post where you are ACTUALLY calling this guy a slave trader for sticking up for the rights of Hispanics. I must say, the irony is pretty awesome.

Wrong! I compared him to a slave trader due to the fact that his motive for defending “immigrant” rights is to profit from the cheap labor industry. Or, perhaps a better analogy would have been plantation owner.

I know and the fact they are cheap labor and getting paid is the exact reason you cry about slaves being brought up. So how does he profit from their cheap labor exactly? I didn't know social workers and high school teachers profited so much off of these illegals, especially to the point we can start calling them plantation owners. Do explain.

Wont accept E-verify? Okay, so what happens when they are fired and locked out of their jobs and replaced by someone who will accept it? When word of that gets around watch how fast there is an attitude change.

Its just the same old crap. Of ALL the people who wish to come to our country, only the Hispanic people should be allowed to disregard, ignore and disrespect our laws because for some unknowable reason, they are SPECIAL!

Could someone please tell me why they are being afforded such exclusive treatment? What makes them so much more special, or deserving, than say, someone from Uganda or Ethiopa? Or what about those from Zimbabwe, the poorest country in the world, who truly need help in achieving a better life? Their GDP per capita is $0.1. Mexico's is $13,800.
