Yes, I do support Arizona's immigration law and any other tough immigration law of any other state. South Carolina has passed an Arizona type immigration law, one has been introduced by State Senator Daniel East of Surry County, North Carolina in Raleigh and 17 other states have legislation pending in their state legislatures. I have been on the Tucson, Arizona topix forum concerning this and crime amongst the illegals is rampant in the state, and expecially in Phoenix, which is turning into a killing grounds between Mexican drug gangs and lords.

Why worry about immigrants? This whole country is founded on immigration, unless your last name is "Five Running Deer" or something. You can look that one up on the google if you don't believe me. LOL. Them Mexicans is some hard working people. When I was working at the chicken plant, they could outwork anybody else. Probably more religious than folks around here, too.

Anyway, seems like Russell County could use some more people. Population declined 5% or so since 2000.

Down even more if you look at it in the 1980s. LOL.

When you see a couple of illegals in a small town not much to worry over. But when you start seeing hundreds in a small area like Russell County its past time to start securing the borders. We should stop doing business with those that employ illegals. Anybody no of any biz or company that works illegals? Before you know it they will be working under ground for 7or8 dollars an hour. Whats that going to do to the economy?

Well first of all, "working under ground for 7or8 dollars an hour" is the stupidest thing that I have ever heard. The national minimum wage is $7.25 right now. This means that these "illegals" that you speak of would be working for minimum wage and that whoever is paying them, would be paying the exact same thing as what they would pay any other person.
The immigration laws that started in Arizona are ridiculous. It is racial profiling and that is it. You know that they aren't going to stop someone with white skin to prove that they are a citizen. The only people they are going to make prove that they are legally in this country are those who look like they have some sort of hispanic decent.
We are all immigrants to this country, so we need to stop acting like we are superior to anyone else. This town is so stuck on white supremist ideals that it's no wonder people think that people in this area are ignorant.
I am not saying that we should allow people to come to our country without the proper paperwork. I know that there is an immigration problem, but these laws and racial profiling aren't the way to fix it.
And as far as people in this area worried about immigrants - get over yourself. They deserve to be here as much as the next person. Are you going to start complaining about other people who have moved to this area, you know the white folk?
Open your minds to the idea that people are different.

Obama said he is not going to secure the border. Because if he did we will not need the immigration reform bill he is trying to push threw. He is counting on the illegals votes next election. Imagine having a president of the United States of America that was elected with the help of millions and millions of illegals breaking the laws of the land. Any American that supports the illegals being here illegally go to Mexico and try to vote in an election and see what happens to you. And yes if they had the opportunity they would work underground for minimum wage.

You should educate yourself All American...

"..he is trying to push threw." I think the proper word is "through".

Last I checked, Obama was elected by a white majority. And if he is "counting on the illegals votes next election", how is he supposed to get it if they aren't registered to vote?

I don't support people being here illegally, but I don't support racial profiling either.

How funny. You say white people got him elected. But when a white person that voted for him disagrees with him their labeled racist.And the fact remains obama says he is not going to secure the borders until immigration reform is pushed through.

Wow, since when were illegal immigrants allowed to vote all American? Seems to me that someone is simply saying whatever they think supports their side of the arguement wheather it's true or not...

obamas agenda is to make illegals legal then the illegals will have voting rights and they will give their vote to the one that gives them a free ride on Americas dime. Those of you that think the illegals should stay I think we will move them into your neighborhood so you can keep an eye on your brothers.

LOL. Obama didn't need any illegal votes to win the previous election; in fact, he won more of the southern states than any democrat since LBJ. When's the last time you saw North Carolina go blue in any presidential election? Hell, he came closer to winning Tennessee than Al Gore did, and Gore was one of the TN Senators at the time.

Double LOL. "America's dime", eh? American's exported all their dimes to China while Bush was in charge...didn't you notice? Actually, Obama has stated several times that he's trying to stop all the labor exports, if you'd stop looking at his skin long enough to listen to what he says. The boy is still half white, if that will somehow open your ears a bit. Back to the topic though, next time you're in the Wal-Mart, try to buy something made in America with "America's dime". Unless they've started charging money for plastic bags, you're out of luck.

Try reseaching some things before you post blind ignorance on here. You obviously have the intertubes available...use them.

The issue is not illegal immigration but invasion. If you don't believe me, go to Tucson, Albuquerque or El Paso and you will see a fullscale invasion taking place with the skirmishing and sniper shooting ala Viet Nam. Won't it be good when all of us kooks are protecting you people who believe Mexico is not and will not ever invade America? It's going on before your very eyes and you still can't see it. Arizona, New Mexico and Texas are being invaded and your president is suing the state of Arizona and the town of Fremont, Nebraska for laws that are for protection of the citizens of said state and town. Oh well, you voted socialism into Washington so now we hae to deal with your mess. Thanks for the anti-Bush vote when Bush wasn't even runnning in the election.

Some contractors in Knoxville tn are having a hard time getting work now days. There is lots of construction going on but they cant compete with the illegals. Illegals have no insurance pay no federal taxes and have very little living expense. Ten or more will rent a two bedroom trailer throw all the furniture out and pile in. If they get caught for tax evasion who cares. They don't own property and don't want to. I give it 2 years and if things continue like now they will be working underground. If anyone has an opportunity to talk with Boucher about the illegals ask him what he thinks needs to be done to stop the madness. I'm curious to what he thinks.

Yeah, it's a bare face lie the courthouse in El Paso was shot during the early morning hours this past Tuesday. 7 shots total hit the CH. It's a bare face lie a 15 year old mythical Mexican got shot dead for throwing rocks across the border. It is a lie Phoenix is the murder capital of the U.S. even surpassing your wonderful socialist capital on the banks of the Potomac. This is a fullscale invasion by your Mexican/Berber/Arab friends, kin and neighbours from south of the Border and you can spout your lying propoganda all you want but the Texans, New Mexicans and Arizonans are on their own in this fullscale invasion from south of the Border. There will be no federal help with troops from the socialist Obama simply because of his Calderon/Obama laision between the District of Columbia and the D.F. of Mexico. You people in Lebanon Va. and anywhere else you are reading this from can believe the lying Nuevo Laredo or believe the truth from me. Do you think the candidate for the Governorship of New Mexico and a state senator from northern NM would be advocating mining the southern border just for kicks? You learn a lot off the sites in Tucson, Albuquerque and El Paso. Ask yourselves, are the peoples of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas in an undeclared war with Mexico or not?
