Courageous lawmakers throughout the nation are facing threats of violence to themselves and their families, as did state Rep, Peter Palumbo of Rhode Island, who sponsored a bill to stop illegal aliens from getting taxpayer benefits.

Below is a link to a short video telling of the state lawmaker his family’s ordeal! The bill he sponsored has become law.

That's not unusual. When State Sen. Chip Rogers sponsored Georgia's Immigration Control Act (SB 529) a couple of years ago a map to his house was published by the local Spanish-language newspaper, implicitly inviting their readers to pay him a 'visit'.

Terrorist tactics from a terrorist group, IMO.

Terrorists, indeed! We certainly see how much these people are simply hard-working and seeking a better life. These strong-arm tactics will not be tolerated by the law-abiding citizens of this country. So much for “living in the shadows.”

If they think for one minute we will be intimidated by threats, they need to think again. They need to go home and threaten their own government.

Unfortunately some of the gangs are better-armed than the police.
