"Barletta trounced GOP challenger Dee Deakos with nearly 94 percent of the vote. And he beat former Mayor Michael Marsicano for the Democratic nomination by staging a last-minute write-in campaign ..."

This bipartisan landslide is a crystal clear referendum on the illegal alien invasion in Hazleton. Now let's see if President Bozo and the other proponents of "scamnesty" give the slightest damn about the opinion of the average American. And how long will it take for the ACLU and the other usual suspects to start screaming "Ra-a-a-a-a-cism"?

I want to know, isn't there any legal steps to take against the ACLU for violating Americans rights by supporting and aiding illegal?

shrlhanco, I do not know and attorney might. In Farmers Branch the council has made it very clear, they will win and pursue everyone that files suit vigerously, for their attorney fees and court costs! Currently a number of hispanic business will probably have to sell to pay costs.... individuals will go under but I do not care. I am tired of paying for illegals' that can sneek across the border and have a baby. We have our lives to live, our bills to pay and we never lived beyond our means.

If my elected officials are so enamored with the plight of Mexican illegals (that seems to be their focus) they can take all of them (after they resign cause they are not representing me..conflict of interest)...

take all the illegals go to Mexico, use their fortunes (they are wealthy these high faluting politicians pro illegal) they can build them in Mexico factories, beautiful hospitals, homes... pay for it all out of their pockets. Invest their money their childrens inheritance their retirement .... leave us alone

Taxaction without representation, thought our ancestors made that point once before.

SC SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM'S INSANE COMMENT'S AT RACIST EVENT!

LINDSAY GRAHAM MUST BE FIRED IMMEDIATELY.
HE IS A TRAITOR & A TREASONIST TO WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND OUR COUNTRY
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
HERE IS WHAT HE SAID.

Time for YOU to school Senator Lindsay Graham on Immigration!

Supporters of ALIPAC:

While many of you have either heard about or seen the video of South
Carolina's US Senator Lindsay Graham making insane comments about the
citizens of America having no ownership of our nation, being bigots, and
how wonderful Senator Kennedy is, the time has come for a structured
effort to correct Senator Graham.

In coordination with our allies, we have decided to launch a campaign to
educate Senator Graham about how far off base with Americans he really
is!

This will be a very important coordinated effort that needs to launch
immediately because we now have reports that Senator Graham is in secret
talks with Kennedy and Chertoff to pass Amnesty!

Senator Graham is now key to the Amnesty deal going down in Washington
and he is politically vulnerable because he has stepped so far out of
line with his constituents in this video speech to the racist group La
Raza.

An Open Letter To Congress

For too many years, Americans have sat back and let the people they have elected to office run this country. We have said "well, they seem to know what they are doing". After all, we have to go to work, raise a family, pay bills, make dinner, and god forbid, we cannot miss our favorite television program. Then we look up from our busy lives and find that this great country we have entrusted to those "elected officials" has completely gone to hell in a hand basket.

This letter is being sent to inform those of you in Congress that those days are gone. And they are gone forever.

For the last two decades, you have allowed our laws not to be enforced, our borders not to be controlled, and the result is people who have no legal right to be in this country are marching in the streets by the tens of thousands making demands. Now you want to give into those demands - not this time. In the 1980ís, amnesty was given to millions of illegal people and this only opened the flood gates because our borders were not properly controlled.

The primary function of the Federal Government is to protect the sovereignty of these united states. You have failed to perform the primary task for which you were elected. You have forgotten that you are employees of the American people. This letter is your notice that if you do not do the job you were sent to perform, you will be replaced with someone who will complete this task.

Task number one - Close and control our borders. If it takes a fence, wall, airplanes, electronics, satellites, or National Guard members every fifty feet along our border, then DO IT.

Task number two - Enforce our employment laws. Set up a secure website tried into the social security database. Employers can log into this website using their employer tax ID and a password, input a name, social security number, and a date of birth to check current and future hires. If the information does not match, the person being checked cannot be hired or continued to be employed. If those who are in this country illegally are not able to work, they will leave. Every quarter the employer should be required to recheck employees. If employers do not comply, enforce the current laws and prosecute them.

After you have entirely completed the above tasks or in five years - which ever comes first, then move on to the next.

Task number three - Set up a temporary guest worker program that can only be applied for in other countries at our embassies or other approved places. Every person who applies will be thoroughly checked for good health, a criminal record in all countries, and any other standard which would apply.

Once a person is approved, they are given proper ID and paperwork which is then input into the social security database, which will expire after the temporary limit has been reached.

So members of Congress, these are your tasks. Remember we, your employer - the American people, are watching you and there is an election coming up soon. Will you do your job and continue being employed or will you be replaced - the choice is yours. And for those of you who do not have an election coming up soon, CAN YOU SAY RECALL ELECTION?

Isnít America great, we all still have choices.

grandpa posted that comment back in 2007, he's probably pushing daisys by now. As for two faced Lou, it was all propaganda for his own benefit, he secured himself a seat in congress. If you would pull your head out of between your skanky cheeks, you would see his true motive. He really doesn't care about this town, it's not profitable for his own interests anymore.

Too lake gringos move out of our way. There are now more illegals (soon to be given amnesty) in Hazleton than gringos. Ja ja ja ja
