One can understand where the families are coming from but they must surely know in their hearts that they were not supposed to be there, at least according to current Hawaii law.
The question comes to mind as to why these 6 families who were not party to the original granting of leases should be let in the door late.

Well we will see how many are actually left when it is all said and done. The provision is they can stay but anyone with a criminal record cannot. I wonder how many that will actually leave.

If someone from another country is convicted of a crime they can be deported, but that's a provision for non-Americans. This issue is with Hawaiians who are MADE Americans. To change this provision to evict them is like saying they are NOT Americans. Not to mention that they could be set-up by someone just so they would have to be evicted. Leave them alone Lingle, so you can say that you helped at least 6 Hawaiians - while you screwed the rest of them over.

I was not surprized when one woman interviewed refered to a vacant lot as "my land". Sorry, it does not belong to you,but to the State of Hawaii. You do not have the choice of staying on the land, if the state will not give you a lease, you are evicted and you then have to move. I am wondering if anyone is helping these folks find alternative housing?

Gee whiz people, one family has been there for four generations. If that doesn't establish at least a theoretical right for that family to remain where it is, there is something really rotten in Denmark. I hope this can be worked out so these families can stay in their homes.

Lingle doesn't have a problem with the people remaining on the land as long as the wording in the final bill is corrected to disallow criminals from living there.

The way to solve the problem with the language is to put in new language saying that when the state breaks the law it can be evicted from native occupied property. Lingle's statement indicates a bias in her own mind that the state can not and does not ever break the law. The state is breaking the law (federal) at Kahana, and elsewhere, not the other way around. Unbelievable.

I cannot possibly sign this bill. If I sign it, I will have to allow all kinds of kookai people to squat any old place they would like. I would be condoning and forgiving an illegality commited for 4 generations. This cannot continue, and it will not stand. The Hawaiians are going to have to stand up straight and cut out their childish ME VICTIM mentality. They have been given every opportunity given everyone else to get educated, get good jobs, join the military, attend American colleges, receive Medicaid, Social Security, and Medicare, and all kinds of wonderful things possible only in America. Mokes are so crybabies.
In the best interests of fairness to ALL the people of Hawaii, I VETO this ridiculous bill. This is a decision I can live with for the rest of my life.

So? This does not mean that they own this land. My father always told me that if you lease, you can be evicted at any time, but if you own your home, no one can push you out.

Leave this human beings alone. You all must have
had a good time celebrating the 4th of July. Camp
grounds way open at Bellows with cars being checked at the entrance to Bellows. Rules needs to be followed
There was a Celebration July 4, 1894 in Hawaii when the Republic of Hawaii declared itself. Read
on and stop putting your 2cents in. Lease or
owner of lands can alway be evicted according to
having a smart lawyers.
