Take action now:

"Mexican illegals vs. American voters"

Not to get your hopes up, but Tony Blankley offers this:
...according to a National Journal survey of Congress, 73 percent of Republican and 77 percent of Democratic congressmen and senators say they would support guest-worker legislation.

I commend to all those presumptuous senators and congressmen the sardonic and wise words of Edmund Burke in his 1792 letter to Sir Hercules Langrishe: "No man will assert seriously, that when people are of a turbulent spirit, the best way to keep them in order is to furnish them with something substantial to complain of." The senators should remember that they are American senators, not Roman proconsuls. Nor is the chairman of the Judiciary Committee some latter-day Praetor Maximus.

But if they would be dictators, it would be nice if they could at least be wise (until such time as the people can electorally forcefully project with a violent pedal thrust their regrettable backsides out of town)...

...The public demand to protect our borders will triumph sooner or later. And, the more brazen the opposing politicians, the sooner will come the triumph.

So legislate on, you proud and foolish senators — and hasten your political demise.

The following was sent to Senator Durbin, Senator Obama, Congressman Rush, Representative Davis, Senator Meeks March 27, 2006

Senator Durbin:

The following is an email I felt compelled to send to CNN and I am forwarding a copy to you. I could no longer sit idly by and not voice my opinion. Many Democrats like myself, many African Americans like myself, many females like myself, many veterans like myself, feel this way and are very disappointed in our political leaders. I have been watching several illegal immigrants put a roof on a house a block away from my home this past week. Are you saying Americans will not do this work? I have relatives with experience in the restaurant industry, but can

A common trick used by illegals who work in the aboveground economy is to report enough dependents(whether they exist or not is unimportant) on the w-4 to prevent income tax from being withheld.

Sal,
If you drive on our roads, call the fire department when your house is on fire, travel safely from one point to the other because of good police protection, go to the ER when you are hurting, send your kids to school for free, you are getting "something" from this society. And, for the most part, the Asian and Latino people that I try to business with work in the cash economy precisely to avoid paying taxes on their income.

In February, the "Seattle Times" had an article noting that in WA there was a movement afoot to import legally a large number of Thai workers to replace the largely illegal Hispanic workers that had been harvesting fruit. The advantage of the Thai workers was that they couldn't speak English and so were more easily controled, wanted to go home after their gig was over, and were less likely to "run away", meaning, I guess, come in under an AgJob visa and then go work construction. They apparently also came without dependents. The illegal Hispanics were apparently getting too uppity. The race to the bottom is on.

Salvador, Salvador, where have you been and where are you from? Are you wet, or are you just a sympathizer?

The McDonalds closest to my house had 12 employees working yesterday morning. There was a white girl, and a black guy who spoke English. The others looked to be from south of the border and sounded like it too. Whataya wanta bet they were mojados. I have a pretty good eye for that sort of thing because I used to send them back to their own countries under a law that was called PL 414. Not one time was anybody ever kicked out at the jail because I was wrong.

If you come to this country your paying taxes. Taxes are everywhere and on everything. When those 12 million mexicans plus however many other immigrants buy something they are each contributing to the economy that yet they dont get anything back from. Immigrants are doing all the jobs that 'gringos' dont want to do. working fields 6 days a weak 12 hours to make 250 dollars a week you think thats fair o wow you can go work at Mcdonalds and make a lot more than that.

Any guest worker program is a big slap in the face to the Mexicans that have been waiting for a visa...
It tells them just sneak in and get what you can and sooner or later the gringos will just let you stay cause they don't have the cajons to force us out.

Not to mention it tells us tax paying born and breed americans that this current goverment does not answer to them.

"People shouldn't be afraid of their goverment, the goverment should be afraid of its people"

Of course, the whole guestworker terminology is fraudulent:
1. Everyone knows that once they are granted status they will never be compelled to leave unless they commit major felonies. But even legal permanent residents are subject to deportation in such cases.

2.The flimsy g-string that the proponents use to deny the fact of amnesty includes a nominal fine(a sum less than what they paid the coyote to enter the country), background checks that will need a vastly expanded bureaucracy to process (does anyone really think that thorough background checks will be done on an estimated 10-12 million applicants?), and requirements that English be learned (more and more bureaucrats needed to monitor and verify this)and past income tax liabilities be paid (a real mess with all those fake or stolen SSAN's and payments in cash). Logic and common sense points to the near certainty of a "rubber-stamp" legalization process.

The GOP Congresspersons should think twice about endorsing the products of the drink and drug-addled brain of George W Bush. Recall that this is the guy who thought he could turn Iraq into a western-style liberal democracy.
