That's right, Blue Grass Fever, Vicente Fox has no idea how to govern correctly. Mexican citizens care more about becoming illegals and ruining our lives than fixing their own. The problem is within their borders. It is not our problem. This "problem" must be deported asap.

Sure makes one wonder doesn't it?
really, those meetings are not about what we, the cirtizens want. Bush had meetings in Palm Beach with corporate interests regarding this as well.

I don't think they'll get far unfortunately, cause for some reason there are people who believe that illegals actually have constitutional rights in this country.

They do. The Constitution refers to "persons", not "citizens".

The major problem with these laws is that they're racist. Do you think they're going to target the illegal Irishman painting your house? How about the illegal Polish woman who cleans your house? The illegal Russian woman who takes care of your grandmother? No, they're going to target non-whites, especially those who don't speak English. I believe in securing out borders, but I can't support racism.

This is exactly why the city of Hazleton, PA disgusts me. Even the mayor himself seems to be putting an anti-Hispanic spin on the city's new ordinances, even though I'm sure there are illegal immigrants from other nations as well living within his city's borders.

For all we know the founding fathers meant this to mean citizens.

The laws obviously aren't that racist if they are over 11 million illegal aliens in this country, the majority from Mexico.

Default Danbury CT illegal immigration

Luckly I'm not a resident of Danbury but I am from I neighboring town and I have to agree that the immigration in Danbury is getting out of control. I saw something in the News Times this morning where it was a huge deal that they deported two aliens.
What can be done. I think someone needs to go after the business that emplyee this people. Alot of the smaller landscape companies employee these people as indepent contractors. This allows the companies to get around the problems with assocatied with illegals. There simply don't have to ask those guestion or get the alien to fill out the paperwork. There are many illegal aliens in Danbury that hold full time jobs, simply because they are list as independent contractors by their employers.

Cities can do what they want, but corrupt judges and the feds will and are stopping them as soon as they start. We need to stop saying "secure our borders" , they know what they SHOULD be doing, they just dont want to do it.

I never would think that coruption in our government would get this bad as they now support and defend illegal murderers

Noone is a magician that can make that many people "disappeat"
Deporatation doesnt happen instantly for this many people. considering that there would plenty of time for the US to "adjust" to not having illegals here. We survived and prospered without them before that masses came...Or is that a dream I just had? No its reality
