If you think a bunch of arrogant, whiny, uneducated, cowardly illegal aliens are a match for the citizens of this country, you either have a very limited knowledge of this country, or you are delusional, or both.

I was born in this country, as were my parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, great-great-great grandparents. I am the descendant of African slaves and German immigrants, all of whom worked their asses off to make this country what it is. I have relatives who have fought and died in many wars to protect this country; and if you think for one second I will not fight until I draw my last breath to ensure my son, and the sons and daughters of other U.S. citizens can continue to live in this country without the burden of foreign parasites, you had better think again.

This isn’t over by a long shot. And you can take that to the bank.
Thank God, some one is defending our American way of life. No amnesty. Send them back to their country and have them take their unemancipated minors (new borns) with them. Their mothers are lawbreakers who came here for the specific purpose of raiding our treasury. As one illegal said to my neice, " America nice country, my husband, he go to work, me and my four kds go on welfare." On top of that she was working. As an undocumented, questions cannot be asked of them. They change their names daily...they are undocumented??? no papers" So they can be anyone they choose on any given day. because once they invoke, "me free" or other such dribble, they cannot be asked questions.
Women who are legal citizens and break the law and have children are not excused from jail terms. We have a women's prison in our state. Eighty per cent of them are young mothers. Why can't we send illegal mothers to our jails for lawbreaking and tell them the same thing the legal mothers are told. " Leave your children with family or we will place them in foster care?
Look, all this gabbing is not getting anywhere except that maybe those Congress people may read these and know we are angry enough to follow their political careers and "defeat at least a couple of Senators to break that strangle hold. We could do that next time around...2010. Keep a log of who votes for the health care bill, amnesty and social services for illegals and vote them out of office.

Job training for legal immigrants, yes, but why should taxpayers pay to train people who can't legally work here, and who may be deported at any time?

Another close friend of mine, disabled and out of work, went to the local office of public assistance to inquire about assistance and was asked if he was "legal" and when he responded in the affirmative, they asked him to come back the next day because they had a roomful of undocumented and had to tend them first.
Lastly, a Brazilian family admitted illegals were featured in our newspaper, as returning to Brazil after six years working as a meat-cutter, and "now that the economy is poor, we are going back to Brazil with enough money for our entire future." Well, recently, he was quoted again as saying that he " might return for those new jobs in construction" referring to the stimulus money. And boldly said, he would be coming as an undocumented person.
And really, lastly, my neice was at one of her daughter's playoff games and asked the illegals around her to at least keep quiet during the National Anthem...the reply, "It's not my country."
Are we a country under the rule of law or not? Why should a whole class of people be exempt from it? Why should these people be in our supermarkets with piled high food carriages, pay with our food stamps and WIC vouchers, while we scrounge for sales.
One of my friends who is a casher in a supermarket said that one Brazilian couple took a red stamp from the "day old" display and put it on a $28 dollar piece of meat. My friend who speaks several languages, heard the couple talk among themselves, called the manager. The man ran out of the store and the woman stayed behind and paid with food stamps. Come on, enough is enough. Illegals are lawbreakers, either uphold the law or get rid of the court system so we can all live without laws.
You can add the school system to your list of thing Illegals are abusing.

I am from Massachusetts where a "Universal Health Plan" was enacted. It took one year just to form the heirarchy. The salaries are eyeopeners. Small businesses still can't afford to enroll and the illegals ignore all laws including this one and still show up at our hospitals. One hospital, Boston Medical Center has instituted a lawsuit due to the huge numbers of free cases they are forced to support. I am told one of the biggest expenses is the number of interpreters required to serve this lawbreaking piopulation. Let us keep messaging that any member of Congress who votes for this tremendous social medicine, will not get our votes and that we will help their opponents. Someone please start a fund to defeat the members of Congress stupid enough to scrap the fact that 80 per cent of us have health insurance...just do something for those who don't. And send the illegals back home...they are the ones consuming healthcare services without paying a dime. In Mass. they are still not paying a dime. Believe it or not, when they go to specialists out ot town, they get travel vouchers to go there while the rest of us search for the best price on gas because we have to pay our own travel costs.
Illegals in our area are now sending for their relatives who need expensive surgery.
The other night, late news showed a poster near the Mexican border that read, "So far from God, so near the United States"
Wake up America, we are losing our country to the people who broke into our beloved lands, leeching off our benefits, while they work for cash. Go to any supermarket, look at who has the bulging carriages, roasts, and better cuts of meat and then use food stamps while we buy hamburg and use our hard earned cash.
I was behind an illegal couple, man, woman and two kids. They were munching on bags they had opened, they separated the groceries into two piles, took out two EBT cards and two WIC cards and each pretended to be the parents of the same two kids and walked out to their late model suv without paying a dime.
Another couple took the "day old sticker from that bin" and placed the $3.00 sticker on a $28 dollar rack of meat. When the cashier called the manager, the man ran out of the store and the woman stayed behind , she claimed it was a mistake and paid with food stamps. The cashier, who is a friend of mine, speaks several languages and he said, they were bemoaning the fact that had been accused of that activity in another store. My friend said, it is tiring trying to keep up with what the illegals demand at the cash register...and they get angry when my friend checks the food stamp or wic list for unapproved purchases. Why can't our stupid congress recognize that the illegal population is ruining our country, schools, hospitals, stores etc.
We need to let the Congress know, this health care reform is still not going to include the illegals....they are teflon....no law affects them. now, they want free college tuition for the kids they are raising on our welfare system.

<<Given E-Verify’s track record of discriminating against Latino workers—>>

Now, I know we have some super smart machines around, but can someone tell me how E-verify discriminates against someone? Murguia has really lost it. When you start accusing an electronic device as being discriminatory, you've gone 'round the bend, as the Brits say.

Maybe she thinks it is actually HAL from '2001: A Space Odyssey'.

It is sad that most jobs you apply for down here, you have to be bi-lingual or they won't even consider you for the job.

How's that for serving the American public.
