Its obvious, and I have noticed many of you agree with me on just about everything Ive stated. We need something done about it but what do WE- America and legal immigrants do about it. How do we band everyone together and do something about it? Im not talking about the government, in just about every thread Ive read its mentioned we should put more troops on the border and e-verify and things like that. but be realistic Government isnt going to do it. So what do we the people do? How do we make this better? Its ovious we have to start with the border. What would be the point of throwing them back over if they can just as easily come back again? So the border needs fixed first. but how do we do it? How do we unite the legal immigrants and Americans and fix this ourselves? Is it possible?

That is a difficult request only because there are many groups and organizations out there.
Not all of them all balanced thinkers if you know what I mean.
You need to find something middle of the road.

There was Poster pushing a Petition just recently here.
Does anyone have a link or information?

Here's a suggestion: workplace raids. You hear of one here or there, but they aren't that widespread. They do work, though! Do it in the San Joaquin Valley in California at the vineyards and fruit fields. You'll round up about 50% there! Here in the Southwestern states, we need to especially step up inspections on workplaces.

And strengthen the borders! This has been going on for years! It will save this country more than any bogus healthcare reform by getting rid of most indigent care (because around here, at least, it's mostly illegals that take advantage of that principle). Here's one idea. Take prisoners out of the prisons, where they're just a drain on our economy, and staff them on posts along the U.S.-Mexico border. Place them on an 80-foot stand so, not only can they not escape, but they also have a wide watch. Equip them with tranquilizer-dart equipped sniper rifles, so they can keep the Mexicans where they belong.

Those are just some ideas. But we all can agree: they must leave. Now. They are a drain on an already drained economy.

You can Google "Illegal Immigration Groups"
You can Google "ALIPAC", "NumbersUSA", "FAIR", "FreeThinkUS"
There are many Groups.
You deciede.
Stay away from the Fringe Groups though.
Just like anything else, do your research first and find one with the best fit for you.

Not that I dont agree with you because I do but thats all in the governments hands. Im talking about us, the Americans that the government doesnt give 2 sh*ts about. How do we take back our country?

How dare you expect an "American" to do its own research!!! That's what foreign laborers are for!!! Entering "cost illegals" in a query is way too many keystrokes for an "American".

Obviously.

I just thought I should warn you all DA-ahn is no longer on the board so any messages to him are not needed as he is no longer here to defend himself. Something tells me I will be off of here before long as well.
