"The congressman was worker through his Memorial Day break in his district."

This makes no sense, even to people who can't speak English. In French this makes no sense, in Italian this makes no sense. What language do you speak, Trailer Trash Gazette?

Giving too much discretionary power to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano must not happen. She is a true puppet of White House influence and should be restrained? We just cannot trust many of this people who don’t have the best interests of the American working man, or enforcement in their agenda. In 1986 we were promised by top Democrats and Republicans to enforce the laws, instead for 27 years we have been invaded and allowed foreign nationals to settle. Washington is entirely to blame for the bedlam we have today at an unsecure border in many regions, with business just ignoring laws and when convicted receive soft lenient treatment.
With lax enforcement it has lead illegal aliens to the idea that they have as much right to remain here, demand citizenship right. They have become so disrespectful. Now they openly demonstrate in our streets, waving foreign flags and verbally insult American law. ICE who are supposed to be the arm of the HS, have been probably ordered to stand down instead of allowing them to do their job? Same with no enforcement in “Sanctuary Cities” which is absolutely ludicrous and should not restricted for arresting any illegal alien.
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said Friday that the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill doesn't have enough votes to pass the Senate? Which gives the millions of Americans a chance to bombard both U.S. Senators and Congressman/women about this outrageous G8 reform bill and stop it in its tracks? By now we all should know the Left and its advocates are well versed in able to manipulate the press, social networks, agenda negatives as the race card and so called Politically Correct terminology to engineer much of the populace with their Socialist agenda. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE GETTING SOFT AND SEEM NOT TO CARE ABOUT WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS? We must do the same otherwise all is lost? They will be phoning, faxing and getting in the face of politicians in their office, so we must do the same by phoning Washington switchboard at toll-free t 1-888-978-3094? Every day are adding even more dollars to support not only foreigners, but the deeper depth of deadbeats who according to Washington is nearly half of the working people. Look to NumbersUSA and American Patrol for more help to learn more. Do not pass the buck to others and start doing your part now.

Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.) has introduced the Keeping the Promise of the Immigration Reform & Control Act IRCA Act. I sincerely hope that there are more solid patriotic Democrats and Republicans that are willing to go up against the core of both parties, who consider that Americans get first priority? Of course some of these political figures are lacking in pressing for stringent enforcement, beginning with the 2006 Secure Fence Act and adding another 626 miles of double layer fencing, to the original inception of only 14 miles. A DOUBLE LAYER PARALLEL FENCING LAW WAS ONE OF THE ENFORCEMENT TRIGGERS IN THE SENATE BILL 477THAT WAS DISCARDED? The bill would fulfill the border security promises, workplace verification promises, and interior enforcement promises that were never fulfilled by the 1986 amnesty bill. The bill serves as an alternative to the Gang of Eight's amnesty bill, S.744, and is a response to public opinion that's been evident in poll after poll that the border needs to be secured before dealing with other aspects of immigration reform.

The Keeping the Promise of IRCA Act would:
Require all employers to use E-Verify within 2 years

Require all employers to re-verify the work authorization of temporary guest workers

Increase the penalty to at least 1 year in prison for committing fraud while going through the work authorization process

Increase penalties and fines for employers that hire illegal aliens

Require DHS to check suspected illegal-alien smugglers and those smuggled with terrorist watch lists

Increase penalties for illegal-alien smugglers

Bar sanctuary cities from receiving State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) funding

Hire additional ICE agents and support staff

Assign at least one ICE agent to each federal, state, and county prison and require ICE to detain suspected illegal aliens booked to the prison

Assign at least one ICE agent to each state drug and gang task force

Provide ICE agents and Border Patrol agents with appropriate equipment - body armor and weapons

Discontinue visas to countries that refuse to repatriate deported illegal aliens

Add an additional 10,000 beds to ICE detention centers

Create a pilot program for a biometric exit/entry system at land ports

Require equipment sharing between the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security

Achieve operational control of the border - defined by stopping all illegal border crossings, drugs, and weapons

Add additional judges, clerks, and prosecutors along the border

Many of these complications to keep America safe, enforcement in the workplace could be eradicated if the Congress would adopt a national ID card? THEY SAY ITS TOO EXPENSIVE? THATS ABSOLUTELY YOU-KNOW-WHAT! ULTIMATELY IT WOULD SAVE TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS? E-Verify for instance only detect illegal labor hired by businesses if they run the information through the data bases. Essentially its really the owner of the company if they are going to cross reference who is working for them. However, a biometric Identification card issued to every citizen (legal residents have a Green Card) would not only stem unauthorized labor, but could also determine if the possessor has a right to vote, plus as a further advantage it would proof who you are, when apply for credit. With three positive examples, the E-Verify have just one usage of clamping down on foreign workers? With your iris and fingerprint, the greater possibilities are obvious?

preaching to the choir. Estes Park boldly hires hundreds of illegals and does not even have a second thought to say so in their want-ads..."spanish speaking preferred", etc. We are well on our way as yet another sanctuary city along with Pueblo, Denver, Greeley...it's the old "if you can't lick um join um" theory that is rapidly becoming reality.

how all you righties are getting worked up about big gov not stepping in and protecting your borders. This is a perfect example of why we need regulations of businesses for things like equal pay for all people, environmental regs and yes even employing illegal citizens. All the "job creators" have been raking in the dough paying these workers next to nothing to work long hours. But the free market is the ultimate system and will regulate itself without any interference from Uncle Sam. Right tea baggers?

how all the lefties call anyone who wants to follow the law "righties". I guess it has to do with how the lefties have only one testicle dangling way down on the left which renders then incapable of creating offspring, thank god because they are so tedious and any children raised by them would be beaten up constantly for whining.
