HURRAY FOR MAYOR BARLETTA OF HAZLETON PA LUZERNE COUNTY!!!!
MAYOR BARLETTA HAS THE GUT AND COURAGE TO "STAND UP" FOR WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE CITY OF HAZLETON.

RECENTLY TWO MURDERS TOOK PLACE IN HAZLETON BY ILLEGAL ALIENS.

DRUGS, CRIME, PROSTITUTION, SECTION 8 HOUSING HAS BECOME A SAFEHOUSE FOR THE ILLEGAL ALIENS AND ABSENTEE LANDLORDS THAT RENT TO ILLEGAL ALIENS.

WHERE ARE THE RIGHTS OF THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN (USA)?

IT APPEARS BEING AND ILLEGAL ALIEN GIVES THE ILLEGAL ALIENS MORE ACCESS TO SOCIAL SERVICES THAN A TRUE-BLOODED AMERICAN CITIZEN.

WHAT HAVE OUR POLITICIANS DONE TO THE USA?

12 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE BEING GIVEN AMNESTY ALONG WITH ALL SOCIAL SERICES, I.E. SOCIAL SECURITY, SSI, FOOD STAMPS, SECTION 8 HOUSING, FREE SCHOOLING, OVERCROWDING SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS, EMERGENCY ROOMS, "ILLEGAL VOTING", ETC.

WAKE UP USA CITIZENS AND TURN OFF YOUR "TV" AND GET OUT AND LET THE POLITICIANS KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THEIR GIVING AMNESTY AND "THE SELLING" OF THE USA TO ILLEGAL ALIENS AND FOREIGNERS.

HOW CAN WE CALL OURSELVES A COUNTRY IF WE DON'T HAVE SECURE BORDERS AND SEAPORTS.

ALLOWING AMNESTY TO 12 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS (EQUIVALENT TO THE POPULATION OF PENNSYLVANIA) WILL FOLLOW WITH ANOTHER 60 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS RELATIVES, THEIR RELATIVES AND THEIR RELATIVES, RELATIVES.

IN A MATTER OF A FEW YEARS, USA POPULATION HAS EXPLODED FROM 200 MILLION TO 300 MILLION.

DO WE WANT TO BE ANOTHER CHINA, INDIA WITH OVERPOPULATION OF ILLEGAL ALIENS? "HELL NO!". ILLEGAL MEANS ILLEGAL AND THE ILLEGAL ALIENS NEED TO LEAVE THE USA AND GET IN LINE BEHIND OTHER IMMIGRANTS LOOKING TO COME TO THE USA LEGALLY.

Keep it up, Hazelton! Show the rest of the country what REAL (legal) Americans can do when you make us mad and push us too far. Get these ILLEGAL aliens out of our beloved country. Why did our government condemn AMERICAN single moms to working for minimum wage and getting off welfare only to give it to people who came to our country ILLEGALLY? I personally would MUCH rather give my tax dollars to some lazy American than a LAZY, GOOD-FOR-NOTHING ILLEGAL ALIEN AND THEIR HORDES OF ILLEGAL CHILDREN!

GET THESE SMOKE AND MIRROR "SPIN" POLITICIANS off their butts and MAKE them do things the way the LEGAL CITIZENS of this country want it done. We have a few pockets of patriotic leaders who are doing what our president and his henchmen should have done a long time ago.(Got a GREAT sherriff in Hamilton County, Ohio)DO NOT STOP!!

To Mayor Barletta,
Boy! Am I proud of you. I watched you last night at that ridiculous meeting with Arlen Spector and Mr. Kennedy. You were wonderful, you were right on with everything. I live in LA and I can't read the news or watch tv without hearing about some terrible tragedy that was inflicted by a Illegal Alien, mostly Mexicans. They destroy all our beauty with their ugly drawings, if they were really proud to be in America why would you want to destroy it. I can't tell you the horrific crimes they commit.
When I heard Mayor Blumberg say that crime wasn't caused by Illegal Aliens in NYC I just about threw up. I come from NJ and I know that Illegals make up most of the crime there. He lied out and out lied.
I came to California from Wyckoff NJ. I just heard that a very small town next door is now little Tijuana with day laborers and already destroyed by them. Tell me how much lettuce and cabbage do they pick there? I thought they were here to pick our crops. Don't tell me all the jobs that they are taking is because no American will do that job. I was in the hospital last month UCLA and on 3 floors there was only one American person and I went to 2 different offices and all the woman spoke spanish to each other. Boy! Did I feel discrimination. Now don't tell me no American will do those jobs.

Dear Mayor Barletta I hope all goes well with what you are doing for your city and also for our country hopefully more people will follow you.
God Bless you and God Bless America!!!!

Congratulations!!!!! Finally, a Mayor who has the courage & self esteem to carry through with what he knows is proper. It's high time someone stands of for this country. What happened to the days when an immigrant had to speak English in order to get a job? I'll tell you what happened....someone started handing them forms in their own language. Why learn to speak English when you didn't need to? America enables this situation, & I'm sick & tired of it. I am in support 100%. English Only! It's the only way they'll learn. The USA must force illegal immigrants to become Citizens, pay taxes, speak English, & for God's sake STOP FREELOADING. Real Americans can't afford to support these people. It's an insult to all of us. I will support & elect any official who will stand up for this country as Mayor Barletta has. He is my Hero!!!

Have you been to Miami recently? Well, I have & if you don't speak fluent spanish you won't feel @ home there I assure you. Last time I checked Miami is in the USA. The immigrants are coming here but not embracing our culture. Whites aren't being racist we are just trying to preserve our language and culture. When the street signs are in spanish........ there's a problem!

Sorry but race has nothing to do with it. We are Mexican, El Salvadorean, Portuguese, and Scandinavian in our family. More brown skin than white. First we are American and want our immigration laws enforced and our borders secured. We are a land of laws and our leaders have made a mockery out of them. We are so proud of Hazelton and the other areas across the United States that are doing what the Federal Government Refuses to do and that is to enforce our laws. Many of our leaders must be voted out. We must make sure illegal immigrants are not able to vote and that our voting equipment is secure. We do not want comprehensive immigration. We want secured borders and enforced laws. NO Senate front door or Congressman Pences backdoor Amnesties. Legal immigration in controlled numbers is welcomed. Proper documentation, with background and health checks of any race are welcomed.

I have a consulting business in Miami, the street signs are English my friend. Dont fabricate lies to make your case. Just embrace the fact that the US was founded by immigrants like George Washington who broke the law against King George by disobeying him and he wasnt illegal by doing that??

were you parents immigrants -- how many of us ( our ancestors ) came over on ellis island -- we forget what it was like for our ancestors -- I hear people scared and racist -- I guess like I said first it was the blacks -- now it is the Mexicans --if the mayor was of a different race would he make the same rules ?

You must be scared, I'm sick and tired of what illegal immigrants are doing to our communities, taking our identities, and using up our resources. As far as terrorists go I'm sure they are already in this country. Not much I can do about that but hope our government is dealing with it better then they are dealing with our immigration laws. We do need to secure both borders. I'm with you on that one.

Take some time to read what you said again Jimmy! If you know anything about the history of the language and culture of Miami or Florida in general you would know that this land was home of native american indians and was part of a spanish colony. Doesn't it make sense that that region perserve the culture from the original natives and settlers of the land. Oh wait, you mean preserve the language and culture of WASP english speaking people! All people screaming that this is not about racism are only kidding yourselves.
My parents immigrated from Puerto Rico in the late 1950's with seven children to Northern Ohio knowing little to no English. By the way, for many of you so called native Americans Puerto Ricans from Puerto Rico are American Citizens by Birth. My parents went on to raise 13 children without using any public assistance. Instead they taught me and my siblings the value of hardwork and family values. Oh that is only an American cultural thing! Get real! I was the 9th child and the first to get a college education as well as serving as Marine Corps officer for over 10 years prepared to give my life for the American way of life. To me the American way of life is the embracing of our diversity. America is a great country because of the variety of people that worked to build it from where ever they came from and to just set the record straight that many of these came here outside the legal methods historically.
Remember all of you, only the native americans were here legally. the rest of you invaded. The fact that Hazleton has statue of Christopher Columbus is shame and is most likely attributed to the fact that it has large historical Italian population. If only you all could read the truth surrounding the barbaric invasion that Columbus inflicted upon the people of Puerto Rico known as the Tainos Indians.
