You have to remember, mexicans are not a real race. the indians screwed the spanish they allowd to live, male or female. Ya'll were not intended to have a country, only be servants to the Indians. We saved you.

every us citizen should be afforded the same and equal protection under the constitution. That sated, then If I have to take a random drug test to maintain my job the so should evey welfare recipient., If a family recieves food stamps and the child misses or skips school then momma and daddy should have to have that chils bebifits cut. Failure to take a drug test should be automatic disqualifacation if the family is on welfare. As for persons who have hurt theit back and say they are disabled and recive disability payments the same drug testing should apply. Failure to drug-test is automatic disqualification. these persons are sucking the system dry. when the system fails the only thing that will rule the land will be self preservation by any means

Illegals come from many countries. Now that's a problem that's hard to control. Illegal immigration costs us, Americans, with higher auto insurance costs, higher healthcare costs, higher income and property taxes, etc. We're giving our country away and we're footing the bill. Would you let someone break into your house, raid your fridge and medicine cabinet, demand that you give them stuff for free, and require that you speak their language instead of English? Imagine someone barging into your home and telling you that you have to make room for their kids as well and that you're going to have to feed them and pay for their education. Well there are people that have broken into the U.S. and are demanding these things. I wouldn't allow such disrespect in my house. It seems it's o.k. that illegals disrespect our laws and think they're entitled to everything while me and my family can't achieve the American Dream because I'm paying for someone elses.

I just have to share this news article that was sent to me today.........

This is an actual article from a newspaper in Victoria, TX on August 12-18, 2009

Victoria, Texas is a town about 80 miles west of Houston. Local Hispanic leaders there, in opposition to pending Immigration Legislation, boycotted all Caucasian owned businesses last month as a demonstration of their economic impact on the community. The boycott was declared a success by the Hispanic community, noting revenue in Caucasian owned businesses was down by 19 percent.

Businesses owners declared the boycott a success as well, pointing out that shoplifting was reduced by 77 percent, money orders sent out of the country were down by 97 percent, and the cost of daily clean-up and trash collection was down by 94 percent.

Shoppers reported they could actually hear English being spoken throughout the community for the first time in recent memory, and customers paid for purchases with real money, not government debit cards of food stamps!

I wish illegals would boycott where I shop and boycott coming to my community. Our schools would improve, our towns would be safer and we could once again not worry about unlicensed and uninsured motorists who can't understand the rules of the road. I wish my state had a law similar to Arizona. It would be a great start.
