    • On April 30, 2009, by johnpage - The "phase in" period should be shortened. Two years is more than adequate for everyone that employs anyone to get on board. The only thing standing in the way of passing this legislation is the Democrat Party, Labor Unions and greedy business owners and stock holders. Mr. Thomas is mistaken when he says "This is a State issue, not a Federal one." Although the Federal Government has ignored the problem for may years, and the States have been forced to deal with most of the fallout from illegals, immagration is still a Federal issue that must be dealt with.

    • On April 02, 2009, by rhonda - Oh yeah! this bill is like a beam of light during a horrific storm. What did Obama say? A beam of light will shine down upon you.." Well it has. My Nation, My People We should not have to support and promote those in this country who are not entitled to jobs and benefits simply because they managed to cross the border, while the children of this country go hungry and without.
