Sam's a good guy,and yes he is a citizen.
I think I read that he's a former police officer.
He has no more use for these illegals than any other fine patriot of this country.

Sam IS one of the good guys , me thinks . He is in the minority and is paying a terrible price for standing up as an American. The best of luck to him for doing the right thing and not following the herd mentality.

I have to agree with you about this, if there were more legal immigrants speaking out as Sam does, there would be a lot less animosity towards the "Latino" Community. America first,last and always
Sadly, the pro-illegal/open borders fools are always trying to turn this issue into a race thing, claiming to be opposed to illegal immigration is bigotry against “people with brown skin”, i.e. Hispanics/Latinos. Because of these idiots and the liberal news media, many Americans only see and hear from Hispanics/Latinos who are in favor of illegal aliens. These so called “reporters” refuse to ever cover American Latinos or legal Latino immigrants who are opposed to illegal immigration. However I can assure you that there are literally hundred of thousands and perhaps millions of Americans of Hispanic/Latino descent who have an allegiance to the USA alone and see illegal immigration from any country even Mexico as an invasion from an enemy nation.

Those of us American Latinos such as me are viciously attacked by the pro-illegal dopes as traitors and “coconuts”(a derogatory name for Latinos, similar to “oreos” for blacks). However these attacks by our enemies are proof that we are on the right side of the illegal immigration debate.

Well since Americans aren't stepping in to take those now open jobs that have been stolen from them, then somebody has to do the work. Thus the Somali influx is good and necessary.
Have you ever contemplated why Americans aren't taking the jobs? Perhaps the jobs are not offered to them, due to Americans having knowledge of OSHA regs,overtime laws-something an illegal wouldn't dare complain about to authorities?

I don't know for the life of me anyone would choose to invite Somalis into their community. Even amongst other Africans they are the lowest of the low. There are many in the D.C area and I have never seen such a bunch of freeloading unappreciative black muslims in all my life. They hate America too. All they want are our jobs and money.
Yep,the Somalis are a fine upstanding bunch of folks....stoned a 13-year-old rape victim to death...

A 13-year-old girl who said she had been raped was stoned to death in Somalia after being accused of adultery by Islamic militants, a human rights group said. Dozens of men stoned Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow to death Oct. 27 in a stadium packed with 1,000 spectators in the southern port city of Kismayo, Amnesty International and Somali media reported, citing witnesses. The Islamic militia in charge of Kismayo had accused her of adultery after she reported that three men had raped her, the rights group said. Initial local media reports said Duhulow was 23, but her father told Amnesty International she was 13. Calls to Somali government officials and the local administration in Kismayo rang unanswered Saturday.

Obama for Africans!

Remember, he isn't African American all the way, Obama even has African family, like his aunt, living here. He's more African than African-American. He will open up immigration to Africans. Americans will think of Mexican immigration as a naive child compared with the African influx this country will face if Obama wins. Then, with all the black movements we have in place, no one will be able to say sh!t about African mass influx in the name of "racism".

I think a group of Americans will colonize certain parts of the world, probably South America, which has plenty of land, to rebuild a great nation like we once had. Could the South become powerful and the North a sh!t hole? It could.

thanks for the link and the affermation that there are Latino's loyal to America. Illegal Immigration is a problem to all Americans. LaRaza and groups like it have made a racial issue out of a social one ,just to justify a criminal action

How do the poor white people fair in Grand Island? I hear they are pretty much put at the back of the line for any assistance. Who is supporting the refugees? Who is supporting the illegal alien population?
I have relatives the are American Citizens in Grand Island and their four year old could not get into head start becauce all the clases were filled up with children that have noncitizen parents! This should be an outrage to any tax paying Citizen. When Citizens cannot even get benefits in this country because of non-citizens we are all in for trouble in the end.

Americans need to make sure their companies are American owned,for sure our food sources should be protected and all American Citizens should have a job before a refugee or an illegal worker. I really do not see that the refugees are a benefit when they are using up all the housing and social services. How many Poor Citizens in Grand Island are having a hard time finding low income housing. Too many and I bet they won't get the same free medical care either!!! It is not right and is discrimimation against American Citizens. Will the ACLU represent American Citizens anymore? It wouldn't make the news would it? Some might be interested in the news article about the P3 Refugee Visa Fraud going on.

You might want to check out an editorial in the Fort Morgan, Colorado paper. It is about the Refugee Resettltement Watch and all the Programs our tax dollars are spent on and it's not for the Poor Working Americans, I can tell you that. We deserve at the very least equal treatment and that includes monetary entitlements that non-citizens get.
