This is pretty much how I feel about it too.

Mexican Standoff

I don't know how everybody else feels about it, but to me I think Hispanic people in this country, legally or illegally, made a huge public relations mistake with their recent demonstrations.

I don't blame anybody in the world for wanting to come to the United States of America, as it is a truly wonderful place. But when the first thing you do when you set foot on American soil is illegal it is flat out wrong and I don't care how many lala land left heads come out of the woodwork and start trying to give me sensitivity lessons.

I don't need sensitivity lessons, in fact I don't have anything against Mexicans! I just have something against criminals and anybody who comes into this country illegally is a criminal and if you don't believe it try coming into America from a foreign country without a passport and see how far you get.

What disturbs me about the demonstrations is that it's tantamount to saying, "I am going to come into your country even if it means breaking your laws and there's nothing you can do about it."

It's an "in your face" action and speaking just for me I don't like it one little bit and if there were a half dozen pairs of gonads in Washington bigger than English peas it wouldn't be happening.

Where are you, you bunch of lilly livered, pantywaist, forked tongued, sorry excuses for defenders of The Constitution? Have you been drinking the water out of the Potomac again?

And even if you pass a bill on immigration it will probably be so pork laden and watered down that it won't mean anything anyway. Besides, what good is an other law going to do when you won't enforce the ones on the books now?

And what ever happened to the polls guys? I thought you folks were the quintessential finger wetters. Well you sure ain't paying any attention to the polls this time because somewhere around eighty percent of Americans want something done about this mess, and mess it is and getting bigger everyday.

This is no longer a problem, it is a dilemma and headed for being a tragedy. Do you honestly think that what happened in France with the Muslims can't happen here when the businesses who hire these people finally run out of jobs and a few million disillusioned Hispanics take to the streets?

If you, Mr. President, Congressmen and Senators, knuckle under on this and refuse to do something meaningful it means that you care nothing for the kind of country your children and grandchildren will inherit.

But I guess that doesn't matter as long as you get re-elected. Shame on you.

One of the big problems in America today is that if you have the nerve to say anything derogatory about any group of people (except Christians) you are going to be screamed at by the media and called a racist, a bigot and anything else they can think of to call you.

Well I've been pounded by the media before and I'm still rockin' and rollin' and when it comes to speaking the truth I fear not. And the truth is that the gutless, gonadless, milksop politicians are just about to sell out the United States of America because they don't have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to the face reality.

And reality is that we would never allow any other group of people to have 12 million illegals in this country and turn around and say, "Oh it's ok, ya'll can stay here if you'll just allow us to slap your wrist."

And I know that some of you who read this column are saying "Well what's wrong with that?"

I'll tell you what's wrong with it. These people could be from Mars as far as we know. We don't know who they are, where they are or what they're up to and the way the Congress is going we're not going to.

Does this make sense? Labor force you say? We already subsidize corporate agriculture as it is, must we subsidize their labor as well?

If these people were from Haiti would we be so fast to turn a blind eye to them or if they were from Somalia or Afghanistan? I think not.

All the media shows us are pictures of hard working Hispanics who have crossed the border just to try to better their life. They don't show you pictures of the Feds rounding up members of MS 13, the violent gang who came across the same way the decent folks did. They don't tell you about the living conditions of the Mexican illegals some fat cat hired to pick his crop.

I want to make two predictions. No. 1: This situation is going to grow and fester until it erupts in violence on our streets while the wimps in Washington drag their toes in the dirt and try to figure how many tons of political hay they can make to the acre.

No 2: Somebody is going to cross that border with some kind of weapon of mass destruction and set it off in a major American city after which there will be a backlash such as this country has never experienced and the Capitol building in Washington will probably tilt as Congressmen and Senators rush to the other side of the issue.

I don't know about you but I would love to see just one major politician stand up and say, "I don't care who I make mad and I don't care how many votes I lose, this is a desperate situation and I'm going to lead the fight to get it straightened out."

I don't blame anybody for wanting to come to America, but if you don't respect our immigration laws why should you respect any others.

And by the way, this is America and our flag has stars and stripes. Please get that other one out of my face.

Pray for our troops

What do you think?

God Bless America

Thank God I'll pass that on.

Think about this also every tax paying American is paying for them to have free stuff. If I told the Government that I was not going to pay taxes they would lock me up and throw away the key. For the 12 million illegal's who are here they want to fine them and let them stay? This topic is such BS every one I speak to feels the same way as you and I this is rediculouse. There are way more than 12 million AMERICANS and we need to pull together on this issue. When the Illegals do there little marches in our city and the cops just stand on the side lines to baby sit I say we march towards them.

One Illegal said what are they going to do arrest all of us it can not be done. Well that’s why they make zip ties. I have seen the Government evacuate entire cities when they need to. Well I say round them up put them on busses and drive them deep into Mexico. They are Laughing at us and our Government and I am sick and tired of it. People say it would cost too much to do that well it cost’s way more to keep them here over time. They also say well it will hurt companies. I say good they should not have HIRED illegal’s in the first place. Its time to clean this mess up.

My Grandpa fought in the wars for ME and YOU not some Illegal :angry:

We as Americans need to stand tall and be proud that we are Americans and not let these Criminals walk all over us.

This is alittle long and takes some patience to go through and I apologise if it's too

big a chunk.


if you have been concerned

that the information we have been discussing on this thread

has not been getting out,

this should be encouraging.

We can make a difference by talking together.



(this is the article below - it is slightly abridged but it does't change the content)



If you have been discouraged to see all the flattering news coverage of the perpetual pro-illegal rallying -- and also to see a number of public opinion polls that suggest small majorities of Americans actually favor giving a path to citizenship for illegal aliens.

The new Zogby poll of "likely voters" released today helps explain why those other polls were misleading and should give all of us the confidence that we represent the vast majority of Americans on immigration issues.

Key findings:

* Voters prefer House's "enforcement-only" bill to Senate's bill to legalize illegal aliens, enhance enforcement and double greencards -- by a 2-1 margin!

* Only 2% of likely voters think immigration is "too low" and needs increases!

* 67% of likely voters say immigration should be reduced so we can assimilate those already here.

2. OFFERED 3 OPTIONS ON DEALING WITH ILLEGAL ALIENS, Americans clearly prefer the House bill's 'Attrition' approach to amnesty or mass deportation



2. OTHER POLLS OFFER ONLY 2 OPTIONS FOR DEALING WITH ILLEGAL ALIENS ALREADY HERE -- But voters soundly reject legalization when given 3 options

Zogby shows that when given 3 options, Americans reject legalization and far prefer the "3rd Way" of "attrition" for dealing with the 12 million illegal aliens already in this country.

The attrition method involves steadily increasing enforcement so that more and more illegal aliens voluntarily decide to go back home (meaning that U.S. taxpayers don't have to pay for them to return).

What a relief!

Most other polls have given voters a choice between (1) mass deportations of illegal aliens and (2) giving them a legalization path if they pay fines, learn English and obey other laws.

When presented with that choice, polls are clear that most Americans are squeamish about the thought of millions of people being rounded up and shipped out over a short period of time.

Thus, most polls have shown small majorities of Americans choose the legalization option.

The problem is that the public almost never is told that there is a third option -- and that option is what the U.S. House passed in December.

Following are the percentage choosing each of the Zogby poll choices:

28% prefer the Senate proposals of "allowing the 12 million illegal immigrants in the country to earn citizenship, coupled with a doubling of legal immigration from 1 million to 2 million a year, and increased enforcement of immigration laws."

12% prefer "mass deportations and roundups."

56% prefer the House 'attrition' approach of "trying to reduce the number of illegal immigrants in the country by enforcing immigration laws, and making illegal immigrants go home over time, with no increase in legal immigration."

That makes 68% choosing one of the two options that involve only enforcement.

In another question, the likely voters were told that the House of Representatives has passed a bill to try to make illegal immigrants go home through the three following primary means:

* by fortifying the border

* by forcing businesses to verify that workers are legally in the country

* by allowing greater cooperation by law enforcement

When those three main ingredients of H.R. 4437 were given to likely voters, they were asked what they thought of the bill. Their answer:

69% said GOOD or VERY GOOD idea

27% said BAD or VERY BAD idea

We have been working to distribute these results to all Representatives who voted for H.R. 4437 last December. We are telling them that despite one of the most lop-sided media efforts in history to demonize their bill, an overwhelming majority of Americans say they like what they did -- once those Americans are given a neutral description.

So, every time you encounter a Member of Congress, tell them that you support what most Americans support: the enforcement-only provisions of the House-passed H.R. 4437!

Please carry this message of the 3rd Option in letters you write to newspapers and in phone calls you make to talk shows.

Call up the news editors and the reporters on newspapers that you believe have provided unfair coverage of the debate. Explain to them that their stories should always include all three options and that they should note that the Attrition Option is by far the most preferred.

By the way, the Attrition option of the House bill includes deportations at a moderately higher level than we have today -- just not at the level of millions a year required under the "mass deportation" option.


The Zogby poll shows that on immigration generally, Americans want less, not more, immigration.

* Only 26% said immigrants were assimilating fine and that immigration should continue at current levels

* 67% said immigration should be reduced so we can assimilate those already here.

While the Senate is considering various bills that would increase legal immigration from 1 million to 2 million a year, there is no sign that Americans see a need for any increase at all.

* Only 2% of Americans believe current immigration is "too low."

Overwhelming rejection of the idea that we need more immigration could be found in every grouping of "likely voter" participants in the survey:

* Hispanics, Blacks, Whites

* Catholics, Mainline Protestants, Born-Again Christians, Jews

* Democrats, Republicans, Independents

* Conservatives, Moderates, Liberals and even Progressives

* All income levels

* All education levels

* All regions of the country

* All age groups

* Married, Divorced/Separated and Singles

These results follow the pattern of other surveys asking a similar question, but they are more dramatic.

The difference is that before answering the question of whether immigration numbers are too high, about right or too low, likely voters were given some actual numbers. They were told that there are currently 37 million immigrants in this country and that current policy brings in 1 million new immigrants a year.

Once Americans are given a sense of the magnitude of current immigration, they have no stomach for increasing the numbers.


One reason the public does not like legalizations is that they are skeptical of need for illegal-immigrant labor.

* 77 percent said there are plenty of Americans to fill low-wage jobs if employers pay more and treat workers better

* Just 15 percent said there are not enough Americans for such jobs

Is this in contradiction with polls that have shown the majority of Americans to say illegal aliens do jobs Americans won't do?


Americans appear in other polls to be saying that the jobs as they now exist (pay, benefits, working conditions) are jobs that most Americans won't do.

But in this Zogby poll, they are asked if Americans WOULD DO the jobs if employers paid more and treated workers better.

It shows that nearly all Americans can see through President Bush's and Sen. Kennedy's rhetoric about our economy's dependency on foreign labor.

Another reason the public does not like Senate proposals to legalize illegals and double legal immigration is a lack of confidence in our government to ensure security and safety:

* 73% said they had little or no confidence in the ability of the government to screen these additional applicants to weed out terrorists and criminals.

This relates especially to NumbersUSA's efforts the past months through Congress and the media to warn of the ineptitude within the Department of Homeland Security.

The Center for Immigration Studies says that the "public also does not buy the argument we have tried and failed to enforce the law."

That is the argument we have heard so often from the newspaper editorialists and columnists, as well as such apologists for illegal immigration as Tamar Jacoby and Grover Norquist.

* 71% felt that past enforcement efforts have been "grossly inadequate"

* Only 19 percent felt we had made a "real effort" to enforce our laws.

While the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post and Chicago Tribune repetitively say that past efforts at enforcement prove that there is nothing this nation can do to stop illegal immigration, most Americans believe we haven't really tried, yet.

This Zogby poll shows that the American people have been paying attention ...

... that the American people aren't at all fooled by the rhetoric of Big Media, Big Business, Big Labor, Big Academe and Big Religion that we need to flood this country with even more giant waves of immigration ...

... that we should be able to easily enlist a million Americans in our internet army to counteract all the illegal-alien marchers.


(end of article...congratulations if you got this far...lol)
