sad thing when illegal aliens can win in a court over citizens. kind of shows we are no longer a country of laws when folks who have no right to be here are catered too and rewarded.

this is going to far against citizens. the words of illegal aliens nor their lobby should ever be heard they are not citizens and deserve the boot only.
there is nothing good that comes from giving in to illegal aliens.

1986 shows all it is a fail to help these folks.

The US is changing because illegal aliens are coming over the wall unchecked and being born US citizens. That can be stopped quick.

Is not the GOP who does not want illegal aliens here, it's American citizens.

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.

Flooding ALL White countries and ONLY White countries with non-Whites and telling everyone to "assimilate" to create a "brown future" is White GENOCIDE.

Africa will still be full of Africans.

Asia will still be full of Asians.

Arabia will still be full of Arabs.

Only White children will suffer from this.

Read the UN GENOCIDE Conventions: It is GENOCIDE, White GENOCIDE.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

The anti-whites gotta go.

I hate to say this, but part's of the Nationalist point's are true. I'm color blind and have taught my children to be color blind. Some of my best friends are black. But having said that, their seems to be anti=white hatred rhetoric being spewed all over the Web. This Country will be brown, but not because of the South American Culture. Scientifically the brown will come from whites not producing their offspring at the rate blacks and Asians, do. But if we cut off welfare for illegals, they'll stop dropping like rabbit's too. If you are white in America in 2050. You'll be minority. But my ancestors are European and I'm very proud of my English, Scandinavian ancestory. Their are still plenty of Europeans on this planet. And I don't care about race wars. I care about losing this Country to leeches and thieves.

You mean the changing demographics via illegal immigration? Is it bigoted to object to a change in that unlawful manner? Really?

Illegal aliens are a net burden to our country and will continue to be even if made citizens because they are low wage earners with large families. No, all they will do is increase the national debt in welfare dollars.

It will be over my dead body that I would put out the welcome mat for these lawbreakers who would have only gained our citizenship through cheating, lies and deceit.

You didn't answer my question. Why would it be bigoted to object to a change in our demographics via ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION? It is neither natural nor lawful. Why is it not bigoted/racist for Hispanics to think their ethnic group should be above our immigration laws and rewarded for breaking them? Seems you have the bigot/racist hat on the wrong head. Look in the mirror and you'll see that racist/bigoted hat on the head that it belongs on!

I will never welcome lawbreaking foreigners to my country. I don't give a damn if they are given a pass on our immigration laws.

Illegal Aliens Receive Billions in IRS Tax Benefits

Friday, 23 Sep 2011 05:17 PM

By James Walsh

On July 7, 2011, the U.S. Department of Treasury's inspector general for tax administration issued a startling report entitled "Individuals Who Are Not Authorized to Work in the United States Were Paid $4.2 Billion in Refundable Credits."

No wonder the nation's finances are in turmoil.

******It is clear that unauthorized aliens are filing ITIN tax returns with fraudulent data.******

The Treasury report found that "One common type of
fraudulent refund involves taxpayers fabricating a Wage and Tax Statement (Form W-2) that shows excess withholding and results in a tax refund."

The sworn duty of our politicians is to protect US citizens and our borders.

Illegal aliens are invaders. I don't care if they jumped the fence yesterday or overstayed their visa 30 years ago,. They have flaunted our laws, stolen our tax funded social services, and taken jobs from Americans. Now, once again, they are screaming and demanding their "rights."

My question is, if the illegals had marched en masse across the border, would Rubio and the gang have welcomed them with citizenship and tax funded benefits?

If the Feds had done their job enforcing the laws and securing the borders, these invader aliens would not be here...and our country would be in much better shape.

What am I missing here?

We have to make our voice heard. There are too many standing on the sidelines, not understanding the importance of this traitorous bill S744. Information regarding the disastrous impact this inane bill will have on our country should be front and center in the media every! Who speaks for the American people?

Call and fax your paid politicians, spread the word to your family and friends.- Kill the Bill. Protect American jobs. Take our country back.

"Senate plan would deport illegal immigrants entering U.S. after 2011"
Obama and the political morons should have been deporting all this criminals. Our immigration laws should have been enforced all along.. The Federal government has failed us all, the government has not enforced our immigration laws for a while now. Today illegal immigration has become a free for all. Shame on Obama and the rest, they have let the American citizen down. The politicians in Washington are not doing their work but are pandering to interest groups like La Raza, Mecha and the many more. This is a shame and there is no excuse for it. We have the immigration laws in place that would have put an end to this illegal immigration problem. We would not be in this predicament if our Federal government had done it's job.

OFF Topic:

On the "Today Show", Matt Lauer interviewed one of the wives of one of the Navy Seals killed along with the US ambassador in Libya. He asked, "What she would say to her children about their dad and how she would want them to remember him." Her answer, and I quote, "His love for Christ", and then continued on with a few other things. Throughout the day and on MSN homepage, replaying the story they have edited the "Love of Christ" part out. Why? Because using the word Christ might offend someone! Well, I am a Christian and I am offended! I'm offended that they would edit it out. Offended that we as Christians are asked to tread lightly so as not to offend someone of another religion. I think anyone who missed the original broadcast that morning should know what NBC has done. THIS IS PROOF OF HOW BIASED NBC IS. This man loved his country and loved his God and gave his life for both, just as Christ gave His life for him. Please feel free to copy this and forward it to everyone on your email list. There are e-mails that go around saying, "If you believe in God" then forward this. Well, I am starting one right here, right now. I am not ashamed of God, but I am becoming more ashamed of my country. It is time to take a stand. GOD Bless America! God Bless us one and all... Please GOD, have mercy on us!

pay the national debt? YOU ARE ADDING TO THE DEBT...DON'T YOU GET IT? Look at you, you refuse to pay income tax...you even brag about it and what's more you fell through a roof, broke your hip and claim we tax payers ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE NO DOUBT OUTRAGEOUS hospital bill? lets not forget the anchor brat you helped bring into this world who will be educated for free with tax payers money and fed, clothed and no doubt section 8 housing, etc. etc. HAVE YOU NO SHAME? and you want to forcefully fit in with the rest of the population? and you are one of not 11 million (understatement) try 20, 30 million as many are hiding in the shadows and plain refuse to be counted in the census? but are running around using fake ID'S or stolen ID'S to obtain jobs, like the Vargas journalist who should've been made an example of. Look at the many who have been deported who ended up being flown back to their countries due to the humungous medical bill the hospitals were getting stuck with due to an illness OR ACCIDENT, accruing medical debts in the millions in hospitals THAT WERE STUCK WITH THESE UNDESERVING ILLEGALS but were never the less deported back to their countries. AND YOU WANT A WELCOME MAT? you loathsome creature.
