But they are not willing to do anything about it. Are you, or anyione you know, willing to take up arms if it seems that is the only way to preserve the Constitution and our country?

Very good article by Cynthia Tucker who is by the way a black woman.
FYI, she's got illegal alien relatives in Atlanta...

Even if I was I don't think I'd admit it on a public forum.

Good question-I dont think anyone knows for sure until it actually happens. If I thought the movement had a chance of success, and our nation was further away from the constitution that it is now, then yes, I would.

Have you not heard of the Minutemen, have you not heard about 46 states trying to approve laws against illegals, have you not heard that citizens each and every day write/call their representatives about illegal immigration?

Even the ACLU (that's AMERICAN civil liberties they're talking about, though they represent aliens) can't fight the laws now. I heard yesterday that they're losing battles because they have no leg to stand on.

Why would you want these illegals? What's in it for you?

most pro's are related to illegals..
most pro's are mexican themselves..
most pro's use the cheap mexican labor force..
most pro's were ONCE illegal themselves.. (freebee amnesty)
most pro's are once again (freebee anchor babies)..
most pro's are 2nd. gen (amnesty-anchors)..
most pro's never say pro..

Who says so? Certainly none of the people I associate with, and if the government tries to ramrod another amnesty down our throats that will be thrown back into their faces as well.

Sorry to tell you this but, the POTUS cannot "establish" any sort of legalization program.

That job lies with the Congress.

Blacknight is very confused right now. He is for illegals to be here and think they have the rigght to be here, but yet he/she is trying to find a way to get someone to listen to them.

Just posted this in another thread. He/she wants the President to help the illegals but then in this other thread he wants to the people to do it.

Why should the president of the United States make a contract with any particular group? Is he beholden to conservatives or to We the people?

He/she is hoping a liberal protects them and if a conservative gets into office he/she wants the people to make the choice.

Contradicting us in every way.

WE the people want illegals gone, WE the people want the President to be involved in making sure that WE the people are listened to.

Read the polls, illegal immigration is one of the top issues.
