I'm concerned about all the muslims that are pouring into this country. I heard a radio interview with a man from Houston, texas last saturday night. He said that a bunch of muslims bought up property around hism they come over and told him to move so that they could have his property for a mosque. Also the imans that are suing US airways, because they sere trying to scare the passengers on the plane that they were on! They are also suing the passengers. We had better get out heads out of the sand! The Islamics are taking over little by little!

Don't you have something else better to do than shaking in your boots over something that won't effect your paycheck or the welfare of your kids.America is a sponge it can absorb muslims with no effect.Just relax and be happy.

We MUST insist on border security ASAP. The most immediate threat to US sovereignty is the invasion of illegal aliens from south of the border, predominatly Mexican....not Muslim. Not that the muslim extremists are not a threat. Take action, please. Go to the following website. Send free faxes to congress. No fax machine needed.

I recently reported a business to ICE, knowingly hiring illegals, contracting with several Southern California hospitals. How would you like to have illegals scampering around while you're in intensive care?

This business is also in the process of procurring government contracts with the USCG and trying to get in on Naval contracts. Contraband labor working on our basis of security.

the illegals here, work on our state roads etc. everyday and our state government knows it. But I guess the laws in Louisiana weren't made for anyone but the American worker.

If you haven't already done so, please go to this site and take the requested actions:
1. Ask Bush to pardon Ramos and Campean
2. Demand the border be secured and immigration laws be enforced

This whole situation is just too strange. It's unbelievable we have very few elected officials willing to do anything about it. Seems to be time to clean house of all reps. looking to maintain the status quo. Secure the border and enforce existing laws.
