Immigrants trickling back to Ala despite crackdown - Yahoo! News

Coming back to steal more jobs. At least one of them couldn't find a job hopefully an American citizen got it. Sucks not all employers are doing citizenship checks. It puzzles me Obama claims to want to help the economy but would rather sue states therefore wasting resources and money and time trying to prevent American citizens from getting jobs and keeping illegals in those jobs...guess Obama truly is a liar. He claims he is for job creation but do so you need to get rid of the illegals taking the jobs.Can't have it both ways ya lying kenyan.

Americans will not work the fields or pick crops. Alabama farmers suffered millions in losses from unpicked crops. Illegals are skilled labor; they know how to get it done. Leave them alone.

Then please tell us why the Alabama UE rate went DOWN after the law was passed?

Lies. Plain. Simple. Lies.

The Feds Had Better Stop Alabama

That is just one link. I am trying to find another that showed black and white AMERICANS working in the tomato fields where illegals had been before. That is the great thing about the private sector. You either fight to win or you die off. I could care less if some of the companies go out of business its their own fault for employing illegals for cents a day.

You do realize that we have WAY more illegal immigrants in this country than we have those so-called farm jobs, right? I do not understand how in the year 2012 people still think that all illegal immigrants are working in some field in the hot sun. It doesn't work like that. My opinion is if people are going to defend illegal immigrants and tell other people to "leave them alone" that those people should learn about illegal immigration and know what is really going on. Otherwise, you all have no say in this. People don't want to leave illegal immigrants alone when they are affected by it or know the politics, facts and truth of it.

States can't make up immigration laws, that's a federal issue. Not to mention that it's a violation of the 4th amendment. Ron Paul himself opposes the real ID act, which sounds a lot like the Arizona law. Ron Paul has also voiced distrust and suspicions about Arizona's law. He has even stated that Hispanics are being made scapegoats. What do you think about the real ID act, and do you even know much about Ron Paul?

Obama hasn't sued anyone. The federal government and states have something called the constitution they have to abide to. If portions of a bill are unconstitutional, they can't be passed.
Like I mentioned before the main problem is the employers that are hiring them. Nothing is more effective than "cutting of the food" so to speak. The states can and should pass laws such as making it a felony to hire an illegal with mandatory jail time for those that do which would be a much for effective option.

He is also for states rights. States have the right to defend themselves against a threat. Which is what illegal immigration is. Its costing the state millions of dollars and costing American citizens jobs.I guess the SC will decide on this March 1st. Lets hope they make the correct decision.

How about we don't leave them alone, continue to harass them, and send them back to where they came from for breaking the law.

If I went to Best Buy and stole a TV, I wouldn't expect people to tell the police to "Leave Me Alone". We have a border, and we have laws in place to penalize those who breach our border.

Keep up the good work Obama! Send all illegal aliens, regardless of national origin, back to their homes!

Your candidate has been critical of Arizona SB1070, yet you create a post against Obama accusing him of the same thing. Either you know nothing about Obama or know nothing about Paul. Take your pick.
