I have started my own electrical and home repair business and doing very well thank you. Most of my work is word of mouth, I take a lot of pride in my work and expect the same from my employees.
Did you pay your hospital bill in Pearland before you fled? Did you pay the Doctors that just bit the bullet for your care? Did you pay the physical therapist for your treatment? Amnesty is not happening for you Juan. You didn't play by any of the rules. You will refuse to pay for future taxes, insurance and healthcare, so you are one of millions that will never be allowed citizenship. You can fix this though. Just go back to Mexico, and get in line.

You are just one day from being on the other side of the border.

Get out the "Welcome Mat", the U. S. is about to have 11 million new citizens. We will help pay off the national debt.
Mexicans can't support themselves in Mexico. Check out this new anti illegal alien law:

"Passed in the final hours of the General Assembly’s 40-day session – and despite fierce lobbying against it by ethnic intimidation groups, big business interests, and the ACLU – Senate Bill 160 was created to “fix” problems in licensing delays related to the old bill, but was later amended to add the following strong anti-illegal provisions, all now law:

Bans illegal aliens from getting state driver’s licenses.
Blocks illegal aliens from getting state, grants, public housing and retirement benefits.
Prevents people from using foreign passports to obtain public benefits, unless those passports include records indicating they are in the country legally.
Mandatory participation in E-Verify for contractors doing business with city, county and state government agencies.

SB 160 will take effect July 1."

Now check out what this illegal alien say:

" Martin Lopez, an illegal alien “immigrant rights activist” from Atlanta, was among those who demonstrated outside the state Capitol this month. He said many illegals have been using their foreign passports as a form of identification to get public benefits because the state’s 2011 law prohibits officials from accepting matricula consular cards when people apply. He said he doesn’t know “what they can do now”.

"many illegals have been using their foreign passports as a form of identification to get public benefits"

Does not sound like any people who are going to pay off any debt. They create debt. We don't need them.

There will always be plenty of illegal aliens to deport because they can't stop breaking the law. The countries these people come from have such low standards that for them anything goes but in the US they can be arrested for it.

Because you are born here does not mean you have a loyalty to this country. You may qualify for benefits but you have divided loyalty. You are just a Mexican version of a American, not to be trusted.

Mass immigration, legal and illegal, is killing the livelihood of American citizen.

Twenty seven million unemployed Americans, and the gang of eight, with S744, wants to reward a new estimate of 33 million invading aliens with citizenship.

This is traitorous behavior. Pitting American workers against illegal trespassers for jobs is legally and morally wrong.

The level of corruption in this congress is reprehensible. Our politicians have sworn to work for the American people and for the betterment of our country. Awarding amnesty to lawbreakers will destroy this nation. Immigration law or any US law will forever be a joke. Welcome to anarchy.

No to S744. No to Amnesty. Secure the borders.

Put the American worker first.

There goes your unlicensed electrical company! Told you, things will never be the same after your careless fall back in Pearland Tx. Bet your old boss is happy to have you out of his hair. How about a good doctor in Progresso, Mexico...your country? Memo the clueless claims you have very highly educated doctors and free medical service for all mexican citizens? If you had straightened out your illegal status, you could've received disability from social security, but you didn't want to straighten your status out, so you lose.....loser.

I can still go to the job sites, I just have to be careful. No more ladder climbing for me, I'll leave that to my employees. Sometimes I have to take pain medication to get through the pain.

In Menendez's troubles, echoes of past scandals

WASHINGTON (AP)— An ethical cloud is following Sen. Robert Menendez in Washington, even as he plays starring roles in some of Congress' most fraught domestic and foreign policy dramas.
The New Jersey Democrat leads the Senate's Foreign Affairs Committee as clashes with Syria, Iran and North Korea come to the forefront. At home, the Cuban-American senator is at the center of the immigration overhaul fight that's captivating Capitol Hill.
All the while, a Senate Ethics Committee investigation into Menendez's conduct persists, with many of the same questions about politics, money and influence that have dogged members of Congress through history: When does helping a supporter become a quid pro quo?

You 're a liar. A cheat, a theif. No matter the circumstances of you being here. We will never respect the millions of law breakers that came here through our back door. It doesn't matter that you want respect for the business you pretend to have, you will never understand the philosophy of honesty. You're people will never be accepted and you will never know what it's like to be A Patriot of our Country... That being said, you never give up.

Hazelton is every city and town across this Nation that has been overrun by illegals and they do stack um high in apartments and trailers. We all have felt the pinch. We've all seen crime increase, we're all Hazelton resident's, and Barletta saw it and tried to do something about it. He's been beat down by immigration attorneys and LaRaza. I'm sure enforcing our laws only made him a big target. But that's what bothers me more than anything else. Why do we allow this to happen. Why are we bullied while trying to preserve our culture and uphold our laws. If we bow down to the pressure of the 3rd world poor, we unfold to their level. And we're almost their now. We must take our Country back. Next election will be crucial. Developed Countries don't allow degradation to this extent. We must never relent.
it seems to be the pushing of the nau,nothing else makes sense. it will remove the USA as we know it and if you look around it is being done faster by the day.

I was brought here as an infant, I went to schools in San Antonio and have worked in the electrical field for over 15 years. I use to wire new homes until I started my own business, electrical and home repairs. Here in Vero many retired people need help getting things repaired.

Juan...you have paper's allright. The ones you took from someone else. Come on dude. We enjoy your consistent denial, it's amusing. But you are only one in millions that did not play by our rules. You can't cheat at any game and win!!!! There is a right way and a wrong way. Read the Bible. Read the Ten Commandment's and memorize them. Repeat them to yourself often. And then snap....your brain will realize you've been wrong. Your parent's were wrong and it has hurt a lot of Americans .
