I am SICK of all the illegal immigrants committing crimes and getting away with it. I am SICK of all the debate and how they are taking over OUR country. Ship ALL of their sorry a$$es back to Mexico where they belong, and this won't continue to be a problem!

Our borders need to be closed NOW. Then deal with getting the illegals already here out. I do not blame anyone for wanting a better life but come here legally to obtain it.

This is from a speech by U.S.Rep Rohrabacher

[***Expense to Americans***]

"It's our kids whose education is being diminished, our families who are paying thousands more in health insurance to make up for the hospital costs of giving free service to illegals. It's our neighborhoods who suffer from crime perpetuated by criminals transported here from other countries." "And, yes, our livelihoods are being dragged down as wages are depressed and anchored down by a constant influx of immigrants, mostly illegal, some with H1B visas, willing to work at a pittance."

Rep. Rohrabacher cont:

[***Border Security***]

"But we've already passed legislation addressing border security. It's already into law. It's already against the law, for example, to hire illegals. We've already mandated a stronger fence and more Border Patrol agents. So, in reality, this legislation isn't about those other things which they're trying to get us to support the legislation about; this is only about legalizing the status of 15 to 20 million illegals and then finding new ways to get more immigrants into our country. It has nothing to do with controlling the flow of illegals and controlling the flow of immigrants into our country, as much as it is expanding the number of immigrants, legal and illegal, coming into our country.

Rep. Rohrabacher cont:

[***Amnesty ?***]

Let's start, first and foremost, with the most obvious lie, the claim that this bill does not give amnesty to illegal aliens. President Bush has done great damage to his credibility by playing such word games. My friends, the first thing this bill does is legalize 15 to 20 million people who now illegally reside in our country. I don't care what the President calls it,

it

immediately legalizes the status of millions who are here illegally."

I have no problems with someone coming here legally, and going through the entire process to become a legal citizen. I do not think it is fair that I came over from Germany, and had to study and go through the entire naturalization process to become an AMERICAN citizen and the illegals just come in, do what they want, and then leave when the heat is on. If you want to live here, work here, and raise your family here, then abide by our laws and regulations.

My husband came up with an idea that is brilliant, I think, and that the president and immigration officials should seriously consider. This could quite possibly END illegal infiltration into our country, and do even more good as well. The plan is this : TO DIG A MOTE, FILL IT WITH ALLIGATORS FROM FLORIDA, SURROUND THE BORDERS WITH THEM, USE THE EXCAVATED SAND/DIRT TO HELP REBUILD THE LEVYS IN NEW ORLEANS... Now, is that smart, or what?! That would essentially end all illegal Mexican immigrants, provide needed aid to N.Orleans, and free up government manpower (which is'nt working, anyway), etc, etc. There are so many positives that could result from this idea - I just wish I knew how to get the word out to those who "Run Something". It's virtually infallible!!! RESPONSES, ANYONE???

Yes, sounds like a great plan. I read it when it was posted a couple of weeks ago and LMAO! Call the Army Corps of Engineers! Now what about the rest of the little cocka-roaches already here?

Agreed, even sent a note to my senators: Folks using walkers would arrest and deport more illegals in 6 months than chertnoff has allowed his people to arrest in years. Fire him! Group rates are cheaper. Let us figure it out. We live on budgets! How about Rent A Wreck? lol
