You lost, got over it.

The invasion, not immigration, is unacceptable.

ENGLISH is the language of the United States, you forgot to melt...

We RESENT not fear the invaders, wise up, melt in or get out.

Awww, the poor babies! The underhanded, subversion by breeding tactics are being noticed and a halt is being put to it. Looks like "taking back what was stolen" ain't gonna happen after all..

I just threw up... can't read this crap anymore!!!

My first question to these people born in El Paso (Thomason por free) and lived in Juarez (collecting welfare from the U.S.) is "what do you say when you cross the bridge"??? Is that the only time yoou claim to be "AMERICAN"?

And, the one gentlemen in the meeting spoke SPANISH.... this is AMERICA, like it or leave it and we speak ENGLISH in this COUNTRY. If you want to be in this great country YOU need to adapt. And if you cannot do so and this coountry is that bad then get the "F" out!!!

Unfortunatly there are many people who feel sympathetic for these "ILLEGAL HISPANICS". Truth is they come here to FREELOAD and STEAL what they can with no intentions of making a better life "LEGITIMATLY".

Once WET, always WET!!! Come to my country legally and stay out of the river!

If you don't like the way things are done, go back to Juarez where you can cheat everyone to line your pockets. English is spoken in America and if you don't like too bad. Mr. Rodriguez had to speak in Spanish because these so called business men, you notice they all had a loophole to get into the United States, can't speak English. As long as they could live cheaper in Mexico that is what they did. They honor neither country when it gets tough in one they flee to the other. Losers.

When anglos refer to English only they only mean for Spanish speaking people and I say to you,(SCREWYOU) witht he F word, in the United States people speak Italian no problem people speak, Chinese no problem, people speak any freakin European language no problem, people speak Arabic no problem.
But when it comes to people speaking Spanish then the gringos come and cry English only again and agian F you F you, this is America and we are free to speak what we want wether you like it or not.
Go back to Europe is what most of you need to do.

Legal immigration is welcome. Illegal immigration is not. Do it the right way. For many of those Jose was addressing, they did it the right way. They are here LEGALLY. Stop advocating for illegal immigration Jose!! You are supposed to uphold the laws; not pander to your foreign friends.

Invasion is correct, turn the tables on this. What would it be called if millions of US citizens crossed the border into Mexico to take advantage of Mexican citizens?

If you want to legally emigrate from Mexico, Germany, Russia, Iran, or any other country and become a taxpaying productive citizen of the United States I will welcome you with open arms.

If you sneak across the border illegally to become a leach on the honest citizens of the United States you are a criminal and deserve to be treated as a criminal.

Fellow citizens and compatriots;
I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna. I have sustained a continual Bombardment and cannonade for 24 hours and have not lost a man. The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken. I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, and our flag still waves proudly from the walls. I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch. The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily and will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible and die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country. Victory or Death.
William Barret Travis
Lt. Col. Comdt.
P.S. The Lord is on our side. When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn. We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels and got into the walls 20 or 30 head of Beeves.

The entire issue here, which by the way seems to get murky and overlooked, is ILLEGAL immigration. ILLEGAL immigration is what needs to be stopped. So when a bill is passed penalizing employers who hire undocumented workers, I say hoooah! Everyone who signs the guest book at the front entrance is welcome here. It still boggles the mind that people dont't seem to grasp this concept.

Will someone tell the Senator that it is not "anti-immigrant legislation", it's anti-ILLEGAL immigrant legislation, he is just blowing smoke up the illegals @ss and trying to divide the people of Texas. You're one and done Senator, enjoy the perks now

Jose Rodriguez was elected by "Real" Texans not illegals or citizen want to be's. He needs to realize this and vote the way the people of EL Paso want him to. He is for the people of the U.S. not the mexicans here invading us. Vote him out next election!!

Jose Rodriguez needs to direct his attention to the needs of the citizens of El Paso. He is not there for illegal immigration laws...does he have that much time on his hands that he truly loves all the attention the media gives him on this matter. I'm ashamed of his behavior and I hope he directs his attention to the citizens of El Paso.
