Our government is not protecting the citizens, just like the country you portray. OUR GOVERNMENT IS IN THE HANDS OF CORPORATE AMERICA!

We must all wake up, and face the fact that we are on the brink of disaster as a country. We are fast becoming a third world country.

NOW IS THE TIME to take our country back, before it is too little, too late.
Wow
I couldn't of said it better
Thanks for your honesty

I'm seeing a trend...

Angry White Folks want complete society segregation from African Americans...

Angry White Folks want illegal immigrants to have no rights and be deported...

"White Man's Burden"

The companies are not 'document analysts'. They cannot tell beyond a doubt that a document is forged or if it is genuine. That is the main reason why no law of this nature has passed - yet.

Do you think we can start finger printing these folks and have a data base that will track their status? No doc would be needed...??? If the print didn't match the employer would know. I think it's a good idea.
Good luck on it's passing though, many would scream Im sure.

He's always blaming "White Folks" for everything...I can't help it if his girlfriend was from Mexico and he's upset that people are against the Illegals from Mexico. I don't think he's that old either, around 20, lives with at home.


I seldom see anyone on here post their race/color. He's just generalizing the Whites as he does in many of his posts.

Your right! We need more focus on the 'dirty illegal criminals.' Shoot, I never get my priorities straight.

Wildberries61's strongly voiced underlying complaint, I suspect, is that many illegal aliens seem to be taking advantage of the safety net of social services and medical care in the US. This system was put in place to provide for needy American citizens requiring assistance. It was never intended to serve as the provider of medical care for millions of citizens of other countries who are here illegally. It is widely known that illegals use ER's as a primary health care provider since (thanks to the EMTALA passed in 1986) anyone who enters an ER with any complaint must be treated. If you can provide me with evidence that this is NOT occuring, I will be very pleased.

Below are excerpts from a Dec 2006 article in the NC Times:



http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2006/12/25/news/state/122401122509.txt (broken link)

And here is an excerpt from an Oct 2006 article in the NYTimes:



http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/19/us...rssnyt&emc=rss

Now, this is the most amazing thing........why is it that the US taxpayer is left to foot the bill for the medical care of illegal aliens while at the same time said aliens are sending billions to their home countries? One is led to suspect that a signicant number of these individuals who have come to the US 'only because they seek a better life for themselves and their families' feel little to no allegiance to the country they have illegally entered or they would not behave as they do. If there was any desire to become a member of American society they would not do things like show up at an ER, give a fictitious name and information and promptly disappear once care has been provided leaving the bill to be paid by the US taxpayer.
All the while sending their own money out of the country. I do not consider the flagrant disregard of US law and playing the US taxpayer as a patsy to be evidence of anything other than a desire to 'game the system'. Surely we expect better than this of potential citizens.

I agree. I am a ER nurse at a county hospital in Los Angeles. It is absolutely unbelievable the volume of illegals in our ER everyday. If people only realized the horrific impact it has taken on all of us in this country. The billions it costs us annually, and my kids classroom doesn't have enough books for them..hmmmm.
I do feel for these people, but when is enough...enough?
