We need more faxes/phone calls directed to our Congressmen. Thank you.

I see the sacrifice,hurt and pain (mostly) from those who have lost jobs,livelihood each and everyday.Then I see the Illegals living on welfare and at the same time collecting welfare,Section 8,Utility assistance,etc for a number of kids,,, this is just not fair to those Americans who are struggling paid into the system and find themselves needing these services til the economy picks up again(if ever).

And now they get free tuition(grants), c'mon now,, what wrong with this picture?
Call your Congressmen !!! Put a stop to this insanity.

Here in Chicago the Mayor/Superintendent/ Chief of police have made it clear, police will not be accepting calls nor sending out patrol for burglary(we must go file report at our field office/police station),having been robbed,mugged,car thief unless your very life is in danger. That alone is telling. Those with a criminal mind will easily go into someones home while at work and help themselves to your property.
My solution would be to make it as hard as possible for illegals to stay(enforce our law),use E-verification and cease all welfare if one parent is not a citizen. People need these jobs the illegals are holding. It's either welfare or a job for illegals,,, not both. They can't have it both ways.

You know you should just shut your trap right their. All people are humans wether their black, white or brown. Most low income people are blacks getting section 8, social security and food stamps. While white people are standing on the street corners asking for money. While the hispanics are out building houses, freeways, cutting your f*+&@# yard, cleaning yoour dirty houses and crap toilets... Dont forget, without latinos no whites or blacks are gonna build N-O-T-H-I-N-G... So humans from other countroes should be given rights just as if they were white or black....

NumbersUSA and FAIR have been classified as HATE GROUPS among others by the SPLC. Therefore they are not valid or LEGITIMATE public advocates on any issue either pro or against.
JUST trying to give folks a little heads-up!

When you say ''prosperity through hard work'', do mean something similar to the erstwhile NASDP's ''arbeit macht frei''? You see what we are doing now is a necessary and long overdue debate of what will be the nature of our immigration system in the 21st century and color blindness should be absolute in such a debate. And I believe that an educated man like you subscribe to the concept that all men are CREATED EQUAL.......

Good points. What a lot of people do not realize is that FAIR, NumbersUSA and Center for Immigration Studies are all branches of the same organization. They were all started and funded by John Tanton.

Frequently FAIR references NumbersUSA and CIS "polls" or "statistics" and claims that they back-up their own position, but never mention that they are all one and the same. You could call it intellectually dishonesty, but fraud would be a better word.

That is exactly right, Center for Immigration Studies or CIS is also considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center(SPLC), which is a group that monitors HATE groups and their activities throughout the United States and beyond. The Hate groups cleverly coin their names to make them sound like legitimate, non partisan and umbiased organisations. FAIR also has another branch called Progressives For Immigration Reform(PFIR)

all from other countries need permission to enter the way real immigrants do,unlike the illegal aliens who deserve nothing since they are just criminals. illegal aliens ruin things for others. there is no need for illegal aliens,there is no need to reward them. you brought in my line of work above,and i can safely say there is no illegal aliens on my job,no American that is hispanic working with me wants them here,then again no one wants anyone who will lower their standard of living.

They're demanding that they get a clear path to citizenship. Come on. We are all tired of listening to these demands of this Country. Gowdy is anti illegal and smart as hell. He doesn't want to hurry it and get another 86 debacle. He's right. Laratsa doesn't seem to have any patience and wants immediate reaction from the Committee Who CARES what they demand. That's the very thing that piss's Americans off. Bully, push, protest, demand... Etc. We're all sick of these invader's telling us what to do. Washington hopefully reads some of the forum post's from here, as to get some idea of the attitude of real Americans.
