Albertville to Increase Crackdown on Illegal Immigrants

Can I ask you why do you automatically assume that I'm Mexcican? I'm not, so no need to be sorry....I am a U.S. citizen/Puerto Rican by birth. If E-Verify becomes mandatory....Good,then maybe more Americans will remember what it is too work hard. Also,illegal immigration is'nt all about Mexico...that's a stereotype.  (Jan 31, 2010 | post #151)

Albertville to Increase Crackdown on Illegal Immigrants

Thank You for your kind words. I guess my justification is that I look at immigration as a Humanitarian issue. While the act of entering our country undocumented is a crime, not everyone who does it is a criminal. In other words, many immigrants are hard working,god-fearin g,family oriented people. They love their children and want the best for them, something that is very hard to provide in a country/countries where you are either rich or poor. Did you know that the average wage for a farmworker in Mexico is $6 a day for a 10 hour work day. Could you feed a family of four on that? While the efeect on the economy is evident, I know many families that need welfare but won't go ask for it because they are too proud. We need to find a way to reform the system so that everybody wins. We as a country have also benefited from the labor and services that have been provided by undocumented immigrants. I see how the broken system has impacted families forever. Separating families is immoral. We are all God's children.  (Jan 31, 2010 | post #149)

Ellis, citizens discuss Accountability Act

This is the stupidest idea that they have come up with to date. This just proves the ignorance of this area. Like it's as easy as he thinks. This council and mayor need to do extensive research on immigration and especially consider the economic reprucussions that an ordinance would have. Even the rednecks are concerned....one asked who's going to work if we deport all the illegals? Good Question! This is a federal matter and no ordinance is going to "Force their hand."  (Jan 30, 2010 | post #1)

Maybe you need to get a Real American education because what you just said makes no sense! You are gonna tell me that Walmart checks a persons immigration status and then decides whether or not to charge them taxes....NOT! Also, Federeal Taxes many times are paid even if they are under a different name.  (Jan 21, 2010 | post #113)

Youth trek from Miami to DC for immigrant rights

The race card is somethiing that black Americans pull all the time. You talk about illegals and how they do this and that...I will tell you how sad it is to see so many Americans who PREFER to live off welfare. Like the government owes them something.  (Jan 3, 2010 | post #126)
