“A Nation of Legal Immigrants”

******To increase their power base.******

The Hispanics Americans say that they will be the majority in 50 years.

They could be right.

There are 300,000 "Anchor babies (American Citizens) born to illegal aliens in this country each year who will be able to sponsor their endless relatives when they turn 21 (Chain Migration)

Now the do nothing Politicians from both parties think that if they grant amnesty to 11 million illegal aliens,they'll vote for them.

Why would we want to give that much power to people coming across our Southern border?

So we can become like Mexico and most countries in South America?

It's time to make that decision and the only response that Washington understands is the voice of the American voters in November 2014!

Ask yourself why do most Hispanic Americans want amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens with 6.3 million of them coming from Mexico?

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in.
years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and.
into the sunshine of America".

May 17, 2007.

Ted Kennedy -- Senator from Massachusetts.
Member of the Democratic Party.

Illegal aliens shouldn't be serving in our armed forces especially since there is a big question about what country they are truly loyal to. We're crazy to be trusting them.

How dare them. They think they can get a deadbeat Army job and live off of your dime. If they want to make a contribution to America why don't they get a job like yours. What do you do for a living by the way?

Using mercenaries to fight their wars and slaves to do their labor worked so well for the Romans why shouldn't we try the same thing today?

Was that an attempt at sarcasm or maybe humor? It didn't make a lot of sense to me. My occupation is RETIRED, woopee. I run community gardens along with my own, I have a vineyard and make a lot of wine to occupy my time. I drink a lot too

Sarcasm? No. I just think it is unusual that you think military service is some type of prize.

I wouldn't call it a prize by any means but our servicemen are very important to our country and illegal aliens seem to put their countries of origin first. We don't need servicemen whose allegiance is to any country but the US. That's just asking for trouble.

It does cut out the middle man. Currently we give money to Mexico to train soldiers who then go to work for the drug cartels. If we train them here in our army rather than giving money to Mexico to do it the Mexican officials cannot skim money before it gets to their army to train the soldiers for the cartels. In addition they will get better training and access to better weapons in our army than the would in the Mexican army as well as legal status in the US so they can easily cross back and forth on cartel business. Imagine how much easier it is to legally enter the US, conduct cartel “business” and then legally return to Mexico versus having to sneak in and out.

I just think that serving is a pretty good sign of allegiance to the US. Perhaps if the person is from the Middle East it is a cause for concern, but it is unlikely that someone from Mexico or China is likely to side with the Afgans.

There were a lot of foreigners whop served it past wars with distinction.

That's cool that you have a vineyard. Seems like a lot of work for a retiree though. Wine making is an interesting process. I made a batch one time. The results were so-so. It was drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

If you start your process with the correct sugar and acid levels, your wine will turn out good. Of course there's much more but that will get you in the ballpark.

I trust illegal aliens "NOT" period!!! Looking at the source I do not think we want to give them specialized military training? I am sure you do not agree. Unfortunately we have already given Mexihole some of our finest weapons. Our Witholder has seen that we can do that!!! We all know who he is and we all know the PHONY that we elected into office. The one thing I do know is that he has no control over the midwest. He knows that too!!!
