Cleveland, TN in Bradley County is invaded with thousands and thousands of illegal aliens and suffering the consequences. MS 13, the most dangerous gang in America, according to the FBI commits criminal acts and recruits in Cleveland/Bradley schools. The Mayors Tom Rowland and Gary Davis, the Police Chief Wes Snyder and Sheriff Tim Gobble do not acknowledge the problem and they are associated with a group (Ocoee Region Multicultural Services) that news reports assists illegal aliens. What are Eric Watson, Kevin Brooks and Dewayne Bunch doing to combat illegal immigration at the state level? Such disappointment. What about Senators Alexander (up for re-election) and Corker? Have you contacted these individuals and spread the word?

I have sent both Senators and my Representative, and the President of the United States over 150 faxes all about the illegal alien problem in this country and State. I get the run around that you would expect to get and yes we are concern about the illegal problem, but as you can see nothing is getting done. I asked them if Tennessee could pass something like Oklahoma passed, and never got an answer. So what do you think?

retired01, thank you for your efforts for Tennessee. Yes, we could do something like Oklahoma, but our legislature must have the will and they must hear from more of us. Just keep spreading the word to your friends and family and ask them to call and send emails and faxes just as you have done. If there are any "meet and greets" with State and National politicians in your area, try to attend and ask them questions. Keep blogging on every site that you can, and keep informed by reading information on websites such as alipac.us, numbersusa, etc. These sites help to keep everyone informed on news and action alerts.

I have been reading and looking up different webs and have joined the numbersusa, plus I have asked people to do the faxing and phone calls and all I get is "what for, they're going to do what they want anyway." With this kind of reasoning I guess they figure we can just roll-up the carpet and fade away. I got family all over the U.S. and they do the same as I've done and they get very little respondence also. We're not quiting though.

Well let's see, thats $255 million dollars on education in Tennessee, and $22.7 million on healthcare in Tennessee and $5.7 million on incarceration in Tennessee. That's a grand total of $283.2 million spend on illegal aliens in Tennessee alone at taxpayers expense. I think we could spend that on Americans in Tennessee or cut the sales tax somemore. What y'all think?

Tennesseans need to know that an attempt will be made in the 2008 Legislative session to mess with the drivers license laws again. You need to contact your representative and ask them just what they plan to do to stop this nonsense of illegal alien invasion to Tennessee. Call daily, weekly, and call Senator Ketron. Governor Breseden shows little interest in decreasing the magnets that draw illegal aliens. Oklahoma, Georgia, Arizona, these are some of the laws we need on our books. No bail to illegal aliens for certain crimes, including driving while drunk. Tie licenses and car tags together. Show proof of citizenship for any handouts and services.

The TIRRC in Nashville according to local news is assisting illegal aliens to go to Washington and lobby TN Senators and Representatives and other lawmakers to pass the Dream Act, a big amnesty that would give a pathway to citizenship to millions of illegal alien young people. Plyer vs. Doe (Supreme Court) has impacted our schools by requiring that we provide a FREE education through high school to illegal aliens. Did you know that? Some states are now introducing legislation to stop this practice due to the hundreds of millions of lost dollars to the citizen children of the state. Do you think that the Supreme Court in 1982 anticipated that tens of millions of illegal aliens would cross our borders illegally and then flood our schools with children who we would then have to provide our tax dollars to educate? The Dream Act would give in state tuition to illegal aliens and allow them to seek government funding. It would allow illegal aliens to take slots in colleges and universities that should go to American citizen children and legal residents. It would place the illegal alien families ahead of the American family and then tell us we must pay for and provide further education to those illegally present.

Illegal alien families must return to their homes and seek educational opportunities for their own children there. Young illegal aliens may travel and look for colleges and universities outside of the United States like many American families do every year.

Illegal aliens do not have the right to keep taking our dollars and harming our way of life and our opportunities as Americans. The Dream Act would provide a way for illegal alien children to sponsor their families which would then result in millions upon millions of illegal aliens currently here having a pathway to citizenship (amnesty ) and then provide for more family members to come in and take FREE services and benefits from the American people. Tell TN Senators and Representatives that the TIRRC does not represent the American people. Tell them that you do not want illegal immigration to destroy Tennessee. Tell them that educational dollars in Tennessee should go to the children of the American citizens living in Tennessee. We are turning into a welfare state. FREE education, FREE health care and our insurance costs are rising. Small town hospitals will not survive illegal aliens flooding them with no resulting payment. The late Charlie Norwood, Representative in Georgia understood that completely as hospitals were breaking in Georgia due to illegal immigration.

The American citizens and Tennesseans cannot afford more illegal aliens demanding more dollars and more privileges. Call today while your job has not been replaced by illegal aliens. Call today before your boss ask you to train illegal aliens and then replaces you. Call today to tell your TN Senator and Representative that Tennessee tax dollars should only go to citizens. There is a legal way to come to the United States and you must submit to a background check and health screening and other requirements. Breaking the law, stealing our identities, forging documents as illegal aliens did at Electrolux in Springfield, TN only breaks down the rule of law and destroys wages and jobs for the American worker. Make sure you call the media, contact ICE, the IRS and let people know if illegal aliens are taking jobs and if employers are using them.

You can not tell me that the U.S. Cngressmen and women who represent Tennessee in Washington DC, does not know that illegal immigration is breaking the law. If they don't realize this, they shouldn't be in Government.

The same goes for the Tennessee State Congress and Governorship. When illegals enter the Great State of Tennessee it becomes a State matter, and in order for them to become a State matter they had to enter this country illegally to begin with , which made a Federal matter also.

So now the illegals have both the Federal and State Governments after them, but yet they're here. It seems that the two governments come after the legal citizens of this country more then they do the invaders of this great country and state.

Question: How can a group of people have the protection of our laws when they are not part of this country, meaning not part is that they are not citizens or legal immigrants?

The protection under the laws and policies of this nation pertains to its citizens and legal immigrants, not INVADERS, and that is exactly what they are INVADERS. They are no different then a invading Army from a foreign country. They steal our property and take our jobs, they fill up our classrooms and emergency rooms at our hospitals to the point that some hospitals have close down or are hurting bad for money. They have killed our law enforcement officers and kill our citizens, they have kidnapped our citizens off our streets. They have brought tons of illegal drugs into this country with the help of streetgangs from Mexico and been told by news report escorted across the border and into this country by the Mexican Army.

Now, some of you can still say that this country is not being invaded? I just don't get it.

Why is the ICE Office in Chattanooga not responding to calls from Bradley County,TN? Granted they have much to do in Chattanooga, TN with gangs, crime and other illegal alien problems, but Cleveland,TN and Bradley County have businesses and people supplying documents and fake IDs to thousands of illegal aliens from everywhere.

Senator Corker does not appear to be helping enough to get the 287 (g) for Bradley County. One of the Chattanooga staffers seemed little interested in the issue. Why do we vote for so many people who do little in the interest of the American people and bow down to special interests? Senator Lamar Alexander helped to secure the 287 (g) for Nashville,TN and Sheriff Daron Hall.

The US Government is not interested in curbing the flow of illegals into Bradley or any other Counties or States.
Our Government is controled by the rich,and the rich has one agenda.

The illegal's are a cancer growing in America.
Bradley County is not alone in ther plight, I believe the reason that our Government is ignoring this problem for a reason
That reason being that now we are in the process of ushering in The North American Union.

The end of America is at hand.

Dear All,
I don't see anything wrong with making the pathway easier to amnesty and citizenship for illegals who are following all the laws. Not all of the foreigners are abusers or part of the drug cartels. The reason they leave their country illegally is because it isn't easy and it isn't affordable to get their visas, or they would follow the law in the first place - at least that is why my husband came.
He still doesn't have his "papers" because the governments have made it impossible. If you really want the truth, he cannot even become a legal resident until I make $26,000 a year on MY job (with a family of 4, that's the minimum requirement). What normal individual has that kind of job? Surely not me on my $8.50 / hour GOVERNMENT CONTRACTED job that I have. Ironic, huh?
My husband pays his taxes yearly (which is almost like highway robbery, but he pays faithfully). My husband has a driver's license (before they changed the laws) and never even has had a ticket (I have had plenty), has car insurance, speaks fluent English at his job and at our home, goes to church with me and is a Christian, lives an outstanding life, works a solid job (for barely minimum wage), and supports my two children (for over 7 years we've been married) whose American father abandoned (my children) and who's over $37,000 past due on his child support (their "American father")... who the lovely judges around here never keep him in jail.
If you want to complain about illegals, you need to get everyone's side of the story and get the facts straight. If the government made it attainable, affordable, and efficient, then the illegals wouldn't be illegal. That's the truth!

Go and buy a clue. The illegals have ruined millions of Americans way of life because of their cheep labor and the traitors that hire them. I can't buy a job now because of the over flux of illegals!

So I say.....Deport them, not support them,
