This news article suggest that the economic news in the state is wonderful, and one should think the unemployment rate near zero if there are not enough people to hire to do work. Who knew there were so few unemployed?

There is an urgent need to kick every one of the anti-AMERICAN/pro-lawbreaking/ pro-illegal alien democrats out of office NOW. We are tired of talking. This needs to get fixed now so that America can prosper again and rule of law return to this great country run by rats and lunatics. We ask all our law-abiding taxpaying legal immigrant voters and legacy American voters, to speak up about the urgent life-affirming constitution-preserving need for action. The current degenerated ruinous system hurts ALL law-abiding American citizens and voters and their children's futures and their prosperity and their unparalleled constitutional legacies which is the basis for their country's greatness which the rats and lunatics Occupying the government rights now want to destroy. The impact on our lives and livelihoods and economic security is incalculable and our urgent call to action has broad support amongst law-abiding Americans, and the minion Occupiers of OUR government should put their vile divisive anti-American anti-Constitutional exploitative politics aside and remember who are the owners of this country and their bosses. This is the urgency of action which American people will finally and at last abide. It is not for their own sake that they will rise to action, BUT FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR AMAZING UNPARALLELED COUNTRY, WHICH IS THE MOST COMPELLING, POWERFUL INCENTIVE OF ALL.
Sincerely,
A very grateful, legal, immigrant American woman

What we need to do is put all able-bodied welfare recipients to work through the unemployment offices, or they get cut off of welfare, period.

The newest Pew poll shows that 60% of US Citizens are against CIR:

http://www.people-press.org/2013/11/08/obamas...

GOP will not introduce a bill because then it would force a conference with the Dems. And, as Reid has said,“We’ll get our own bill anyway.”

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/n... -

Amnesty for over 20 Million Illegal Aliens will not improve the economy nor reduce the deficit. Wages for blue collar and working poor will be depressed for up to 20 years: Blacks (15% unemployment), Hispanics (10%), native-americans (poverty).

CBO statements that S. 744 would decrease the budget deficit are misleading, as CBO counts the $200 billion to be paid in during the first 10 years by the newcomers and amnestied illegals in FICA taxes as “revenue”, when actually these dollars are SS trust fund money which is fully obligated to be paid back to the immigrants in the future. During the their first 10 years in the U.S., of course, the immigrants will not be collecting SS payments.

And, Alabama had to adjust and hire LEGAL Immigrants:

Demand for the real double layer fence, isn't going to happen; demand for illegal entry into America punishable as a felony, isn't going to happen; demand for the Birthright citizenship Act, to stop children of illegal aliens getting instant citizenship, isn't going to happen; harsh penalties for employers hiring illegal foreign workers, isn't going to happen. REAL ENFORCEMENT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, SINCE BIG BUSINESS AND OTHER SPECIAL INTERESTS HAVE BROUGHT THE MAJORITY OF OUR POLITICIANS.

SPEAK UP OR AMERICA BECOMES A LIBERAL WASTELAND?

No immigration reform should be touched, until we have substantial enforcement. We certainly don’t need another 30 million legal immigrants as drafted in the Senate bill, when both sides are already importing over 1 million lawfully annually. That must begin with a far more powerful identification program, which would be the implementation of a mandated biometric Social Security card. This digital wonder would be distributed to every birthright citizen and naturalized citizen. Far superior to the E-Verify program not only would it identify those who are eligible to gain employment, but also bring to a halt rampant voter fraud and personal credit theft.

We have the technology to enact this law and it would begin to weed out benefit theft, such as food stamps. The cost for such a program is around $2 billion dollars, but eventually would save hundreds of billions of dollars; perhaps even trillions. Remember that Democrats have failed to tell the truth on many current and past issues, especially about the true illegal alien population. The special interest masters of both parties, wants the cheap labor and Liberals who have no excuses for dishonesty want to overlook non-citizens voting in our elections. The only true poll reports as far as the TEA PARTY and moderate and centralist Conservatives are concerned are the Rasmussen Reports that remains unbiased unlike the national media.

Where the Obama health care is concerned, the reality is that “Freeloaders” and illegal aliens will come out the winners, as they will be approved for free, as the parasites of society always are?

It’s a simple mechanism, which would remove the excuses from both political parties from stealing taxpayer money. I never credited that I would wish for such an identification card, but credit card fraud is now at epidemic proportions. The old Social Security card is easily duplicated and in truth obsolete. I am a victim of credit theft. American citizens must speak up to every Senator and Congress man or women and demand it. Non-citizens are stealing our votes, our rights and only the Democrats will use their power to halt the enactment of a national ID card. SOMEBODY START A PETITION TO PRESS FOR A MANDATORY NATIONAL ID CARD.

Everyone already has an ID card or SS number, whatever it needed. The U.S. doesn't need anymore programs.

Fraudulent documents, stolen Id cards and stolen SS numbers that you illegals carry DON'T count.

I will not be on topix beginning Monday the 9th. I received word today that my father passed, I have to drive from Vero Beach to Progresso, Mexico for the services. I will be gone for maybe 10-12 days. He was such a good man, he took care of his family and was such a hard worker. He only wanted his children to have a better life. My employees will continue to do minor jobs but will wait until I get back for anything large.

Keep me and my family in your prayers.

When Are Americans Going To See The Mexican Illegal Immigration Light?

Our own beloved government is in cahoots with the Mexican government to screw the Mexican undocumented in order to screw us.

Note: I use Mexico as the prime example of our Washington condoned, privatized system of illegal immigration. If we understand Mexico we will understand the other countries involved in this illegal immigration scam to the US.

Reagan's 1986 Amnesty primed the perpetual, profitized illegal immigration and border security pumps. You the invading undocumented are not welcome here - we must use billons of US tax dollars for our contractor cronies in order to militarize the border! BUT -(wink, wink)- if enough of you make it through we will do our best to find a way to let you stay.

Wait a minute! What about those tens of thousands of people who you annually deport? Fooled you fools! What a way to simultaneously deceive the public, make profits, and guarantee this continuous, insidious status quo. Kind of like bailing water on a sinking boat, no? Lots and lots of bailing while the boat takes on more and more water. That is until, of course, they throw another amnesty or reform and reset the undocumented counter to zero (thus disappearing our problem with 11.2 million undocumented for the moment).

To the brainwashed US taxpayers: We the US elite commanded Washington to tell you that Reagan's 1986 Amnesty and Clinton's 1994 NAFTA would effectively solve illegal immigration.

What do you mean the count went from 3 million to 11.2 million? Well - looks like we need to do another reform amnesia program and initially bilk you out of some 46 billion to really fix the problem this time!

See SEC. 6. COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM FUNDS for initial funding.
https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/s7...

What do you mean our 40+ year long problem with illegal drugs is very similar to this illegal immigration problem? Of course they both have that Mexican connection. However - Mexico is our number one source of illegal drugs and illegal laborers, number two source of OIL, our number three (thanks to NAFTA) trading partner, and shares 1.25 billion dollars a day in cross border trade with us. By the way, as far as "securing the border" we do have to contend with nearly one million people, cars and trucks legally crossing the border from Mexico on a daily basis too.
http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/35749.htm

By the way do you ever wonder why Mexican President "120,000 Drug War Dead" Felipe Calderon received Harvard's First Angelopoulos (Bill Clinton) Global Leader's Award and lucrative Harvard fellowship? http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/14761-fleei...

We can not possibly say no to immigration reform - especially because of all of our lucratively corrupt ties to legal and illegal Mexican trade. It is the cost of the two corrupt governments doing "business"; you the US taxpayers along with your new undocumented neighbors will just have to bite the bullet and suck it up.
Love,

Your Immigration Reform Politicians In Washington
