Please attend an event in your area and get your opinion known. Illegals can gather up hundreds to protest our Congressional representatives offices, block INS garages and even fought for and won the Dream act. If a few hundred illegal law breakers can get the attention of our elected officials and cause them to crawl into a corner, what will they do when the people that pay their salary speak up?

I for one am sick of our Politicians not enforcing the laws they were sworn to up holed. I am sick of the media making Americans who are concerned about our sovereignty labeled racist. I am sick of two sets of laws one for Americans and one for illegals.

I am also sick of our government not enforcing the laws.

And I will protest......but, when the lawlessness comes from the top.....I see no hope.

Now the good news......Horder will investigate a parade float in a small town.

There is no hope until 2016. Grown ups need to be back in charge.

I'm with Driller.

When the guy in charge makes up his own rules and no one stops him, then all hope is lost.

I called each of my reps today. As expected only Senator Casey's office was unwilling to commit, comment or otherwise explain their position on illegal immigration. He is a liberal democrat. Of course he was also one of the Senators who forced the Army to buy tanks that the army didn't want. Hmmmmm
The others were receptive and told me that they were also against s.744 or any bill that would grant illegals a path to citizenship. They are also for sending the illegals back to their country of origin.

Great points, casper324! You're correct - there ARE 2 sets of laws. And, to think that the illegal "set" are already criminals! It's insanity!

Good news, tinman01! Did they say when they'd be charging this fight? I think they should contact the media, and make this very public! With more and more citizens now being "educated" and slowly seeing the light, the more of this news the reps can get out amongst their districts in the local nightly news, maybe they can sway the rest of the country!

thanks, DD

LOL No, none will go so far as to actually join the protest although I did invite. I was happy with 3 out of 4 offices that I called.
Casey always follows party line.

Hahaha...I WISH they would get out there and be more public...

But, what I meant was, when would they start to ACTIVELY begin this "conversation" whilst in session, and get serious about pressing "O" to secure the border and begin to address this in an urgent manner?

Do you think calling is more effective, or as effective as writing to them? Perhaps do both? Just wondering how to ensure that they are committed and follow-thru!
thanks, DD
