Why would a U.S. President do his darndest to destroy
the work of U.S. citizens guarding U.S. borders from
illegal entry by informing Mexico of the citizen
patrol locations? We are making 85-year-old airline
passengers take off their shoes and belts and wedding
rings at airports in the interests of national
security. Surely we wouldn't allow Islamic terrorists
the opportunity to have hundreds of miles of an
unprotected border for them to smuggle terrorist
operatives and weapons of mass destruction through,
right?

The Bush Administration is now trying to allow illegal
aliens the privilege of obtaining drivers' licenses.
This would allow illegal aliens to take the jobs of US
drivers of tractor-trailers, taxis, etc.

Agents in the U.S. Border Patrol's Tucson Sector have
seized 543,740 pounds of drugs through July 5, 2006
which is up 11 percent from the 489,898 total seized
in the 2005 fiscal year. Stolen vehicles that are used
to transport illegal aliens and narcotics continue to
be a major crime problem in Arizona. The vehicles
stolen in Phoenix, Tucson and outlying areas are
supplied to organized smugglers in Mexico. The
vehicles have an unending source of drivers who then
re-entry the United States with Contraband or human
cargos.

US Border Patrol Agents, Ramos & Compean, are serving
10+ years in prison because they shot the buttocks of
a repeat drug smuggler from Mexico. For some reason,
the Bush Administration found the smuggler in Mexico
and agreed to pay for his US medical care and hotel
suite in exchange for testimony against our own US
Border Patrol agents who had clean records for
decades!

For people living next to or near the Mexican border,
living there has become a living nightmare with
illegal aliens trashing land, homes, and outbuildings;
killing landowners, Border Patrol agents, and tourists
unfortunate enough to get in their way; killing or
stealing livestock; stealing vehicles, guns, and
anything else they can get their hands on. Within the
continental United States not a day goes by but what
we hear of another instance in which an American is
brutally murdered, sodomized, raped or assaulted by a
Mexican citizen in the United States illegally. The
violent street gang Mara Salvatrucha 13 (M-13) arrived
in the United States from El Salvador by way of
Mexico. By now most have heard of La Raza, one of the
organizations supporting Mexican illegal aliens in
America. La Raza in English means “The Race.”

We have all heard President Bush’s take on the 12 to
20 million illegal aliens in this country:“They are
here to do jobs that American’s won’t do.” Really? A
recent Pew Hispanic Center study shows that of the 12
to 20 million illegal aliens in this country, 3%
provide stoop farm labor; the other 97% are taking
jobs away from Americans in the fields of
construction, hospitality, manufacturing, restaurant,
administrative and service jobs. In real terms, that
equates to 11.64 to 19.4 million jobs that Americans
want and need!

US taxpayers are tired of crime, tired of supporting
politicians who know nothing about US citizen
interests and tired of paying for everyone else's
children in the world. What about OUR children and
families? NO TO ILLEGAL AMNESTY AND YES TO BORDER
SECURITY! Yes to ENGLISH as our official language.

What has our nation become when we must fear our own
political government more than terrorists? Mr Bush,
you're giving away everything and leaving us with
nothing. "Let them eat cake?" We say "NO" to illegal
aliens. SECURE OUR BORDERS, NOW! US taxpayer dollars
should be spent on US families who work and PAY those
taxes. NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!

Your comments are one sided. Unless you know any illegal immigrants (most of my family) you can't speak of them as a whole. Most are hard working and also working on their citizenship. Your house wouldn't have probably been built unless an illegal immigrant built it. Your freeways, guess what? Built by illegal immigrants. Also, the Mexico border isn't the only place illegals come from...... Most ethnics other than the Latinos come through Canada.

He is a globalist and wants his north American trade union to succeed. That is why he doesn't seem to give a care.

Bush is a globalist. He will do whatever it takes to keep his north American trade union idea alive while still walking the fence pretending to care. Make no mistake. He cares more about the 'bigger picture' than the U.S. All you have to do to understand him here is look at what he's been doing and NOT doing.

People coming into this country are looking for a better way of life and for some reason that scares the hell out of us and we gripe about the government helping them, what are we scared of, are we afraid they are going to take the southwest back. We complain about them getting government help yet we say nothing about a multi billion co. like wal-mart getting one point two billion dollars of taxpayers money in the form of sale tax rebates-state tax rebates-property tax breaks-tax exempt bonds-free or reduced price land-state income tax credits. Did the taxpayers play for Scott twenty two million dollar bonus. Oh I forgot wal-mart profit wasn't but ten plus billion dollar last year.They need our help.

So what closet have you been sleeping in? This is not just media hype. Apparently it hasn't hit you yet. Apparently when it does, you'll try to make excuses for that too.

No, we're just not stupid. An ignorant person is uninformed a stupid person knows better and doesn't care. Hope you enjoy your future run ins. Maybe you'll change your mind. After having 2 auto accidents with no recourse, and losing one job needlessly, hey we're awake!

I have no grip about someone wanting to improve their lot in life for their family, and if I came from a poor country and my family was starving and someone was willing to give me a job in a rich country close by, I would risk my life to provide from my family, and I suspect so would you.

The problem is not with the people and their desire for a better life. The problem is with corporations and individual that hire illegals. If there are no jobs for them, there is no reason and no money for them to stay.

We need to jail executives and regular people who hire illegals, and fine corporations so much that they wouldn't do it again, because it's not good business and it hurts the bottom line.

It's like the war on drugs we are losing and costing us billions by jailing people guilty of little more than possession. We need to concentrate our efforts on those at the top of the pyramid, not at the bottom. This not only costs the tax payers less in the long run, but if the political will and enforcement is there, it is more effective.

Unfortunately, our political system is owned by corporations, and they would not support politians that float this idea.

Corporations and individuals who hire illegals want us to look the other way, and spend billions on boarder security that ultimately will not work in a free society.

Take away the carrot, and the mule won't come.

I don't think anyone has a problem with people coming to America for a better life, but let's get it done right and LEGALLY... that seems to be the biggest wrinkle I am reading on here then they will be welcomed just like everyone else.

A law is a law. Why do we have them if we don't expect people to follow them. If we allow them to be bent or broken in the beginning of the process then how can we expect proper and effective enforcement of other laws later.

Oh, yeah!! I am terrified that our country will be taken over by third world mentality people. We can become a sewer just like Mexico if you want. Yes, perhaps most illegals come here with good intentions, but have you seen our jails, welfare receiptients, graffiti, etc. etc. etc. etc. It's enough to scare the crap out of anyone.

No I am not here illegal. I was born and raised in Texas by the WHITE man!!!! Who I must say was a low life who didn't pay any child support. What does that say about the legals here that want to do something for their kids??? Anyways, my mother is white to and my step dad is Mexican. Who is here legally. Some of my husbands family is not legal and they bust their ass more so than any other. But thanks for inquiring about my status. At least most of the Mexicans take care of their families unlike most of the deadbeat legals we have here.

here is a fact. An illegal that was living and worging his ass off in Carthage,Texas raped and strangled a four year old little boy. Now our country will waste tons of money feeding the sick sob not to mention the money and time spent to house, clothe, and try him. A 22 cent bullet between the eyes is what he should get but being America he will get to go to trial.We have enough sick buttwipes of our own in this country, we don`t need or want anymore.
