"There ARE jobs that Americans won't do."

-Dubya, Jul 2006.
American Workers Continue to Pick up Jobs Left Vacant by Immigration Raids

A new report in USA Today finds that unemployed U.S. citizens continue to
fill up jobs left vacant by immigration raids, particularly at meatpacking
and poultry plants. The reports says that plants impacted by the raids were
back up and running at full capacity within months of the raids.
Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain said the raids were beneficial
to the American workforce.

"Whenever there's an immigration raid, you find white, black and legal
immigrant labor lining up to do those jobs that Americans will supposedly
not do," Prof. Swain said in the USA Today article.

The USA Today report cites a study conducted by Steven Camarota at the
Center for Immigration Studies that found Americans holding the majority of
positions in fields that many claim are dominated by illegal aliens.

nothing?...indicating either agreement or abandoning his duties...
Either way your complaint lies as much with Reagan as any one else..
Also did H.W. try to alter that agreement or establish border security as a priority?
Unless your telling me that H.W. and Reagan were not responsible for their action and inactions.
A Republican participates in a mess and it's a Democrats fault, you must view republicans as spineless
if they just go along, silently with the Democrats, who going back on their word

Why does it take thumbing one's nose at our immigration laws to gain the Hispanic vote? Do they think their ethnic group is above our immigration and therefore they are special?
It is not a case of thumbing ones nose at immigration law as much as recognizing that what we have is broken from the borders to the incentives business gives by continuing to knowingly hire illegals.
And if it is possible to fully secure the borders and will the public be willing to pay no just for beefed up security but for higher prices for the goods and service dependent on cheap labor.
In any serious discussion of the issue the question of what do we do with millions who are already here is big .
It's a clear either\or choice.
Either there is an amnesty of some type.
Or you give the Gov't the power and resource's to deport millions, and live with all the consequences.

When did Obama stop taking drugs?

Autobiography admits use of pot, cocaine, his temptation by heroin

WASHINGTON - Barack Obama admitted using drugs in his autobiography but
never revealed if or when he stopped, points out an explosive new book on
the Democratic presidential candidate written by the co-author of 2004's
"Unfit for Command," the Swift Boat exposť that impacted John Kerry's
campaign for the White House.

"I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years," Obama wrote in "Dreams
>From My Father," in a section of the book about his college days. "Pot had
helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it."

In "The Obama Nation," a new book by Jerome Corsi, a WND staff writer, the
author speculates about why Obama disclosed his drug use.

"Why Obama chose to disclose he smoked marijuana and used cocaine at all
remains a mystery," Corsi writes. "Perhaps Obama felt the information would
eventually come forward from his school buddies. So, to minimize the damage
from this concealed fact, Obama possibly judged self-disclosure was the best
route."

President Bush Signs Secure Fence Act

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all. Thanks. Please be seated. I'm pleased that you
all are here to witness the signature of the Secure Fence Act of 2006. This
bill will help protect the American people. This bill will make our borders
more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform.

I want to thank the members of Congress for their work on this important
piece of legislation. I welcome you here to the White House. I'm looking
forward to signing this bill.

President George W. Bush signs H.R. 6061, the Secure Fence Act of 2006, in
the Roosevelt Room Thursday, Oct. 26, 2006. Pictured with the President are,
from left: Commissioner Ralph Basham of U.S. Customs and Border Protection;
Chief David Aguilar of U.S. Customs and Border Protection; Congressman Peter
King, R-N.Y.; Congressman John Boehner, R-Ohio; and Deputy Secretary Michael
Jackson of the Department of Homeland Security; and Senator Bill Frist,
R-Tenn. White House photo by Kimberlee HewittI appreciate the Vice President
joining us today. I thank the Deputy Secretary, Michael Jackson, of the
Department of Homeland Security. Rob Portman -- he happens to be the
Director of OMB. I want to thank Ralph Basham, who is the Commissioner of
the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. David Aguilar is the Chief of the
U.S. Border Patrol.

I appreciate the fact that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has joined us,
as well as House Majority Leader John Boehner. I appreciate them coming in
from their respective states as I sign this piece of legislation. I want to
thank Congressman Peter King, who's the Chairman of the Homeland Security
Committee in the House of Representatives. I appreciate you being here,
Peter.

Ours is a nation of immigrants. We're also a nation of law. Unfortunately,
the United States has not been in complete control of its borders for
decades and, therefore, illegal immigration has been on the rise. We have a
responsibility to address these challenges. We have a responsibility to
enforce our laws. We have a responsibility to secure our borders. We take
this responsibility seriously.

Earlier this year, I addressed the nation from the Oval Office. I laid out
our strategy for immigration reform. Part of that strategy begins with
securing the border. Since I took office we have more than doubled funding
for border security -- from $4.6 billion in 2001 to $10.4 billion this year.
We've increased the number of Border Patrol agents from about 9,000 to more
than 12,000, and by the end of 2008, we will have doubled the number of
Border Patrol agents during my presidency.

We've deployed thousands of National Guard members to assist the Border
Patrol. We've upgraded technology at our borders. We've added
infrastructure, including new fencing and vehicle barriers. We're adding
thousands of new beds in our detention facilities so we can continue working
to end catch and release at our southern border. During the course of my
administration we have apprehended and sent home more 6 million people
entering our country illegally. And I thank the Border Patrol for their hard
work.

So since our government and some greedy employers looked the other way on our immmigration laws "we" law abiding Americans should have to pay for this mess by allowing illegal to remain here??

These greedy employers aren't passing on any savings to us by using cheap, illegal labor they are pocketing the savings.

There is no need for mass deportations. Just remove the incentives to remain here like jobs (e-verify), benefits and birthright citizenship many if not most would go home. It would also be a huge detterant for more to come.

Even HS has said it is cheaper to deport them than to allow them to remain here. No, our immigration laws aren't broken only the enforcement of them are. That's an easy fix and much cheaper than allowing them to remain here.

Another thing any of these so-called savings to the consumer for lower prices in goods are wiped out by our increased taxes covering the social costs of these cheap, illegal workers.
