Hola, "NO AMNESTY."
When you write, "there has been an increase in border crossings," I can only tell you that such is not so.
But then, I can only go on my experience from actually living on the border.
It's been a very long time since I've met an "illegal" here.
Actually, Darla, the brave Border Patrol Agent Brian Kelley may have been tragically killed by friendly fire.
The shot that tragically killed him was in his back.
Riorican...nice little world you have there. Unfortunately I do live in a town within a hundred miles of the border, and believe me...according to Border Patrol, and local news illegal crossings into the Untied States has increased since all this talk of amnesty. Keep your head in the sand and you will be okay. Wasn't Rio Rico the area where Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered...I know it was there or very close to that area.
Yeah...real safe for illegal aliens, but no so much for Border Patrol.
I agree with Mr. Francis....he's informed where most like "riorican" are living in a dream world. Riorican may be happy with his or her little part of the world, but seriously this amnesty will affect every American citizen and NOT in a good way. It only serves illegal aliens, foreign workers and will not serve the people...we Americans.
It's amazing how little our government is concerned with American citizens. We are at the bottom of the pile when it comes to protecting our rights, protecting our border, protecting our citizens from being victims of Identity fraud, which is very high in states like Arizona because of a large population of illegal aliens and foreign nationals living here on Visas. Protecting our borders should be job one, keeping criminals out; keeping terrorist out; keeping human smugglers out and keeping the drug cartels out of our country should be the objective of our government, not pandering to illegal aliens, and foreigners.
There has been an increase in border crossings (illegally) ever since all this talk of amnesty for illegal aliens. See these people see nothing wrong with coming here illegally, driving without a license or insurance, stealing your social security number to open a bank account or to get a job. Allowing millions to become citizens is like saying "good job" jumping over the borders, here's your REWARD!
Same old bad mouthing of Republicans by the Democrats with old worn out "war on women" bull. Get a new line Democrats...it's getting very old. How can Democrats in congress see nothing wrong with aborting babies (even in late term) that were female? Hypocrites. War on women...how about war on babies! Of course babies can't vote, therefore they are mere trash to the PARTY.
It all comes down to Politics, not what is best for the USA. An unsecured border is not good for the USA, nor is it good to add millions of people to our country who would be able to compete with American citizens for jobs; millions to our welfare system, food stamps, social services, and the list goes on and on. It's all about getting the vote for their party. It's shameful that American citizens are thrown to the side, while the Democrats especially, pander to those illegally here in this country. I have lost all faith in this government which no longer represents it's people...American citizens!
Both parks and arts contribute to economic development as well as to human interactions and lifting the spirits. A good decision!
And so, Mr. Francis? Where do you live?
Might it be a good idea for you to visit the border?
Please do come on down to take an early morning walk with me and my dog down in the perfectly safe Santa Cruz River Valley here in Rio Rico. You'll find no "onslaught of illegal aliens," whatsoever.
Afterwards, I'll drive you over to La Posada, a tiny, "mom'n'pop" restaurant in El Centro, Nogales, Sonora, which serves the best chili colorado in the Universe.
When we finish dining, we'll go relax in a newly cobblestoned plaza to mingle with some of the friendliest people on the face of the earth, which might even include a few of those dreaded "illegals" you seem to fear so deeply.
You'll come back to the States smiling.
He'll last a year and a half. Where do I place m bet?
The TUSD taxpayers are getting a bag...
Whenever a person says they never met a gay man, what they really mean is they never met a gay man outside of a public restroom stall
Cornel is prolly a closet gay.
Hey, Frankie, send 'em on into District 9. We'll show you how we feel about you and your ilk!
Patagonia could use a few bucks.
THE HOUSE WILL NEVER PASS THE SOILED IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL, WITHOUT THE MAJOR TRIGGERS TO BUILD THE REAL FENCE AND A TRACKING SYSTEM FOR VISITORS AT EXIT AND ENTRY PORTS?
According to Glenn Spencer, president of the non-governmental border watch group called American Border Patrol based in Hereford, the U.S. government has constructed hundreds of miles of fencing along the southern border, including all types of barriers and walls. Along the U.S.-Mexico border, there are 355 miles of fencing, including eight miles of chain link, 200 miles of mesh/post, 72 miles of (old) mat, and 75 miles of steel beams. The total length of the U.S.-Mexico border is about 1,900 miles. "These estimates of fencing are based on aerial surveys basically completed in late 2009 and updated in 2011 for the area from El Paso to San Diego by aerial survey and El Paso to Brownsville using satellite images from Google," The Secure Fence Act of 2006 called for 700 miles of double-layered fencing. However, the Department of Homeland Security built only 283 miles of fence. And, only 34 miles were double-layered, in all. This is obviously why we ended up from the last Amnesty, financially supporting 11 million plus?
Cable news C-Span showed the floor of the Senate and two amendments. 1. Senator Thune to build the 350 miles of fencing, before illegal aliens could gain legitimate status failed to pass. 2. An amendment for an EXIT AND ENTRY program at airports and other ports of entry and exit to track visitors failed also to pass. We must recognize there are very wealthy special interests at work and if Senators want their favors approve, junket travel for families, campaign contributions and shall we say concealed monetary benefits, the people demands are ignored. But if Americans stand together we can reach out and stop this travesty of a Senate bill—it corrupt and must not reach the house. Even so it will not reach the floor of the House, without a vote.
New York Senator Chuck Schumer thinks "Illegal immigration will be a thing of the past!" His bill is going to solve it all? Well, But the People have got news for these elderly politicians: No, it's not. By dismissing the majority of the major TRIGGERS, S.477 is far worse than law signed into action 27 years ago. IF YOU READ THIS NEW SENATE LAW THERE IS NO SEVERE ENFORCEMENT AT THE BORDER, ILLEGAL ALIEN FAMILIES WILL STILL BE ABLE TO SUPPLEMENT THEIR INCOME WITH QUASI CITIZENSHIP CHILD PAYMENTS AND WELFARE. WITHOUT THE DOUBLE LAYER FENCE TOPPED WITH RAZOR WIRE, THE DRUGS WILL STILL COME AND THE SAME HUGE ONSLAUGHT OF ILLEGAL ALIENS WILL POUR THROUGH NON-EXISTENT AREAS WITHOUT FENCING. THE ICE UNION HAS NO CONFIDENCE IN THEIR SUPERVISORS, BECAUSE HS SECRETARY JANET NAPOLITANO HAS ORDERED THEM NOT TO DETAIN ILLEGAL ALIENS.
More immigrants mean more of a population growth. More people mean higher prices and lower wages and competition for low wage earners? Hispanics, and other legal immigrants who have the legal right to be in this country will be jeopardized by opening the borders, more visas, guest workers to lower wage workers as will be newer generations of blacks, Caucasians, Asians and other nationalities. . There have too many irregularities within the 50 states, especially those manned by the Democrats. They don’t seem to care who votes and one only has to check GOOGLE or any search box for VOTER FRAUD, and you will be surprised how many violations are slowly shuffling through the courts system. Non-citizens are voting in our elections and this administration refuses to recognize it.
California Senator Barbara Boxer is planning an amendment to the Senate's immigration bill (S.477) which would convey funds committed to border security to repay state and local governments only if health care applies to newly legalized immigrants. We were promised that any new illegal aliens, gaining legal status would be exempt from ALL welfare or any entitlements benefits if this Senate law passes. Folks we need to slam DC with a "NO AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS! DOWN WITH THIS DE FACTO AMNESTY BILL!" Contact by phone Senators and the House Representatives, either State or Federal at toll-free -- 1-888-978-3094--or you may phone the United States Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A terminal operator will connect you directly with the Senate office or just about anybody in Washington you request to speak with.
Rep. Rep. Michele Bachmann is planning to stop a de-facto amnesty bill from slipping through the House of Representatives. She and other Conservative Legislators are imperative is stopping fellow Republicans and Minority Speaker of the House John Boehner of Ohio, in pledging as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives not to allow a vote reach the House floor unless a majority of the majority party supports the bill. “The Hastert Rule." As it is called?
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) spoke up to today on behalf of young American people seeking work. His amendment was an argument young job seekers should come before any foreigners coming here on an entry level visa. Thousands of young people already cannot find a job, whether seasonal or on an annual basis. Americans pay taxes, whereas foreigners sneak through the IRS or state tax system and pay little or nothing.
A petition seeking to abolish the Internal Revenue Service recently started by the American Center for Law and Justice http://aclj.org/us-constitution/abolish-th… has gained over 66,000 plus signatures, (just changed to 68.000 in minutes) in just a few days and gaining momentum. Even law group are denouncing the government agency for being "out of control." As did the ACLJ according to a Liberal CNN poll released Monday. WAIT TELL THE WORD GETS OUT NATIONWIDE? Every American of political parties, race or religion should join this fight against this monolithic agency that is supposed to be free from politics, and remain nonaligned. However it especially benefits Special interests, assuredly politicians and the wealthy, which the time has come to shut it down and introduce a fair tax. President Barack Obama's approval rating dropped eight points from last month, owing to scandals within the IRS, AP newspaper and the growing controversy of spying on Conservative groups, the TEA PARTY and church and religious organizations.
REMEMBER THESE INCOMPETENT FOOLS IN THE NEXT PRIMARIES AND DON’T REELECT THEM?
They sound just like Arizona's Republicans in the state legislature. Are they related?
Hugs for Campbell the finger for President Obama. Kind of wonder about Campbell.
For one, these don't look like awesome licensed characters.
For another, these require an initial investment of $100 for a pair.
So, as Rand Carlson might write, they're the same, but different.
