Go on, smear smear smear people who simply want our immigration system to work as intended, with reasonable limits on how many people can enter and live in the US. What you fail to realize is that every time we are insulted and smeared by comments such as Linda's, it backfires and more people become aware of the issue and are galvanized against allowing illegal aliens of any nationality to stay here in the US. There will be no legalization program in the future because we know there will be little to no enforcement. We will not be fooled again as we were in 1986.

Too late now Linda, you can't put the genie back in the bottle.

Your comments are out there now and you can't take 'em back any more than you can un-eat that bag of churros.

Que lástima.

Time for Linda Sanchez to LEAVE CONGRESS.

She has been a total racist for the past 8 years. Her "MEXICAN FIRST", "AMERICAN SECOND" attitude is what's WRONG with MEMBERS of CONGRESS.

She can back track all she wants. She said what she said. She got caught. Now maybe the PRESS will STOP PROTECTING this idiot. We DESERVE BETTER for OUR GREAT COMMUNITY in CONGRESS.

No need to explain your comments, Linda. We know exactly what you meant and we sure won't forget it in November!

From April 9-April 16 2004 Linda Sanchez was in Havana Cuba for "education". The trip was funded by the far left William C. Velasquez Institute - total cost-$7,500.00.
You see, Linda, the REAL TRUTH is coming out about you.

Each and every detail of your Congressional career is about to be exposed to the world and to the GOOD PEOPLE of the 39th Congressional District you have been lying to for the past 8 YEARS!

"While political pundits focused on the rhetoric and furor surrounding Sanchez's comments, President Barack Obama met with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a meeting that ended in disagreement."

That meeting was held at the White House. Obama couldn't take the chance of going to Arizona because he might have to prove he is here legally.

Gordita wants perpetual amnesty. This amnesty will be for only "her" people, no other nationalities. That's her federal solution. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus will not be happy until the USA becomes the Northern United States of Mexico.

Its people like Sanchez that promote racisim. She has no proof and she speaks out of her A s s. Im Hispanic and I support Arizona's immigration law. The police are not going to randomly pick people and ask for their citizenship, they will only do so when they are arrested. The media and libral politicians like the Sanchez sisters that make this law seem racist.
Stop voting for these stupid fat slobs.
I'm actually stunned by how far these racist illegal supporters will go to discredit and defame those of us who support the enforcement of our current immigration law. They spew to meet with their agenda, but don't bother to even read or understand the law because it doesn't fit with the result they want.

I'm with you. We have to pay attention and stop voting for these people. They do not represent us or our interests. Anyone who would stand and applaud the President of another Country who criticizes our law, especially in the halls of Congress, is a traitor

I guess she hasn't familiarized herself with the current immigration laws already on the books that the Federal Government won't enforce. And you are correct. What has she done but insult Americans in order to protect non-citizens.

One man had it right, he recognized a lie when he heard it!

Rep. Joe Wilson Yells Out "You Lie!" During Obama Health Care Speech.

"No, I'm in touch" Barack Obama

“So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations,” Barack Obama

“No, I’m in touch. I know exactly what’s going on. I know what’s going on in Pennsylvania, I know what’s going on in Indiana, I know what’s going on in Illinois,” Mr. Obama said, his voice rising.“People are fed up, they’re angry, they’re frustrated, they’re bitter and they want to see a change in Washington. That’s why I’m running for president of the United States of America.”

My comments were "Misconstrued", Linda Sanchez

"There's a concerted effort behind promoting these kinds of laws on a state-by-state basis by people who have ties to white supremacy groups,"

"Unfortunately, the people who get on the airwaves to stir up anger by misconstruing my comments are not interested in constructive solutions,"

It is an "unfair question" Napolitano

"It is as safe and secure as it's ever been, but it can be more safe and more secure,"

Last week, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Miss Napolitano said it was an "unfair question" to ask if she could certify that the border was secure.

"I Misspoke", Blumenthal

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, faced with allegations that he misled voters about his military service during the Vietnam War, on Tuesday acknowledged that he has "misspoken" about his record

John Smith, president of the La Mirada-based Robert F. Kennedy Democratic Club, said people are just making personal attacks on Sanchez, rather than debating the issue.

"Linda Sanchez is a very reasonable person," Smith said. "She doesn't make rash statements as opposed to people on the radio whose job is to be cynical and hysterical so they can whip up the masses to listen to your radio show and get the advertisers all excited."

The issue is in a 17 page document labeled SB1070 that mirrors federal immigration policy. There is nothing illegal, unconstitutional about it. It does not call for racial profiling, harrassment of people walking down the street etc.
This Law is meant to catch people who are BREAKING THE LAW, the last time I checked that was a good thing.

Having worked all my life, paying for my own education, asking nothing more of our wonderful Country than to live in peace and allow me the priviledge of living within the lines of legality, it strikes to the core, to know that the voice of majority is ignored for the voice of those who enter our country without concerns for our laws and statutes.
It is NOT okay to enter our country illegally...It comes out of my pocket to have to pay for increased boarder patrols. It is NOT okay to use our services to improve someone elses lifestyle who has not paid into our system....that comes out of my pocket. It is not okay to live in fear of being overrun by what ever percentage of those individuals who are criminals....that comes out of my pocket to have to increase protection.
The People have spoken....take us back to civility. Enforce the laws which "We the People.." have voted on. We ask not for the mistreatment of those "looking for a better life". We simply ask that "our life" no longer be subject to the woes and follies of individuals who should turn to THEIR government for "a better life".
