Congress still plans on increasing H1-B Visa's. We must ACT NOW!!

Subject:
Real ID Act and Immigration

To:
Rep. Timothy Mahoney
President George Bush
Sen. Bill Nelson
Sen. Mel Martinez

April 29, 2008

I have mixed feelings about the Real ID Act.
On one hand, I resent my rights being encrouched upon. I do not trust my gov't not to have ulterior motives for implimenting it. On the other, I will do almost anything to keep the illegal "parasites" out of my country.

Reported on CNN this am
OUR POPULATION WILL HIT 1 BILLION BY 2100.
Illegal's enter our country at the rate of 3000 per day.
Our gov't listens to Bill Gates foolishness and wants to increase H1-B visa's for more people. We then have "chain migration" to top it all off.
How sad that our once great country will be one big highway and strip mall. Our resources will be gone and we will be killing each other for water like rats in a a cage.

All this because BIG BUSINESS NEEDS CHEAP LABOR!!
My question is:
After they (along with our Congress), ruin our nation. When we are all living in Third World conditions with no money to spend. Who do they think is going to buy their products???

End chain migration
End "anchor baby" citizenship
Put a moratoreum on ALL immigration until we research the need for more people.

SAVE OUR COUNTRY FOR THE GENERATIONS TO COME!!!!

And how many times did the US go to Mexico to aid in a crises? And did they stay there and leech off of the Mexican government? Big difference buddy.

The state of Texas will soon have no choice but to enact tough state laws that address illegal immigration once all the illegal immigrants move from Oklahoma and Arizona. We continue to pay for the services rendered for illegal immigrants in the form of taxes and it will only get worst. Texas needs to take action now. I speak as a Hispanic who is compassionate but appreciates our system of law and order, there shouldn't be any exceptions only because greedy employers continue to advocate ignorance of immigration laws.

The first point, bettybb, that Thomas was trying to make, is that we are past the point of comprehensive, retro-active solution, such as booting all the immigrants and building a Muro Grande. These people are integrated into our economic infrastructure in a manner such that to remove them would invoke serious repercussions on the economy as a whole.
The solution you propose might have worked a long time ago, but we have avoided the situation for far too long for that to be valid anymore.
Spain and Greece's admission into the EU is irrelevant. They are 2 countries out of a total of 27 in the EU. And even though all of those countries differ in size, their effect on the dynamics of the union are far less significant than would be Mexico in this case of an NAU, being 1 of only 3 countries involved.
The second point that Tom brought up is that we have a very unique situation, in that the contribution from these illegal immigrants to the US economy is actually beneficial. This presents us a unique opportunity to derive a solution that is mutually beneficial to both countries. As a neighbor/ally/sister country, and the most powerful in the world at that, it would be HIGHLY irresponsible of us to push everyone out and tell Mexico to "get it fixed and then come see us." Sure it's our country, but its everyone's planet, and as such those with the power to help have the responsibility to do so.
Instead of thinking in the past, we should sit down, look at EXACTLY what is ON the plate, and decide how we can logically, responsibly, and omni-beneficially solve this issue.
Funny , Oklahoma and Arizona are the only states not having much problems with Unemployment . Because they did the right thing and Booted the Illegals out . Illegals cost this country Billions . They do not benifit the economy at all . Finish the wall NOW !!

Bobby--YOU WERE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME! Thomas J. IS a clown or a reconquista plant or a Communist or both. He should heed his own words and go live his life in Der Fatherland EU and see how long he would survive on humungous taxes and Socialism fr. cradle to grave. NO THANKS!!
After doing a quick speed read of this blog, I came upon levotbs message which I somehow missed. I never said I agreed with old Thomas J., I don't. I just said I could see he was sincere in his beliefs, erroneous as I think they are.
