If I break the law I go to jail. Illegal Immigrants can break our laws and nothing happens to them. In fact we give them free medical care, free housing, free food, social security and they broke the law to come here. We must take action before it is to late. You were voted in office now please do your job.

Why does our government (against the will of those who put them in office) have this overwhelming desire to reward those who, by their very presence here, show nothing but contempt for our constitution, laws and Sovereignty? If an illegal breaches the Southern border of Mexico, he is subject to be shot ~ yet we are afraid to enforce our laws for fear that Mexico and other foreign governments will not “like” us!!! Are we third graders?!?!?! We are a country of laws, and they should all be respected and enforced equally or we have anarchy ~ which is pretty much what we witnessed with protestors marching in cities of the United States of America waiving a foreign flag. These people are not citizens and therefore ARE NOT protected by the very Constitution upon which they spit!

Please vote YES on Kevin Mannix’ “Respect for Law” initiative 112, and help us get our country back!

Respectfully submitted,

I don’t understand how human beings can put blame on a group of people for their own woes. It has happened many times throughout history and in hindsight it is recognized as a mistake. Lots of comments are made due to either lack of education, lack of drive, or perhaps a jealousy that they too can’t get these ‘free’ services. Yes, lots of folks are out of jobs, me included, but I am honest, I am not about to go cut grass or take a job that some of these folks do. Majority (not all) of illegal immigrants that come from down south are uneducated and hence have no knowledge of the law here nor can they get the more coveted jobs. We as Americans, need to improve ourselves, and not look for an excuse or scapegoat for our woes. IF we are to choose a scapegoat as is the tendency of us as humans, I don’t understand why we would choose the lowest earning income group of people as our target, instead of looking at the other end of the spectrum who holds the majority of the money in the US.

Send all the illigals back along with their illigal children. Just because they come here and have an anchor child, should not mean that that child is an Americal Citizen. I don’t remember reading anything about that and I am a legal citizen 67 years old. If it is true then there should be a bill written stating that if you are illigal and have children born in this country, does not mean that that child gets an automatic citizenship. If the parents are illigal, so are their children.

Save tax payer’s dollars, send them and the children back.

By allowing amnesty in this country to Illegal Immigrants that broke our LAWS is ludicrist. What message are we sending our young people and future generations… that it is ok to break our laws and there are no consequences and by the way you get a “FREE PASS” to break the laws. Will we eventually here appeals at the supreme court stating that you cannot put people in jails for breaking our laws.. because we have set precedents with other areas such as IMMIGRATION.. where it is OK to break our laws and their are no consequences. ANARCHY here we come!

My husband is an immigrant from Canada…and by the way it took a year to go through the immigration process and a few thousand dollars later in immigration fees. We are so angry at the congressman and senators who want to give amnesty and a “get out jail free card” to illegal immigrants. We demand a refund of all our fees if this passes! Immigrants that go through the immigration process PAY and those that come her legally WE ALL PAY FOR!!! Try to wrap your minds around this injustice!

If all the illegals that gather together in the 100’s+ of thousands to protest the US for rights they don’t deserve, why can’t they do the same in Mexico and fight against their own countries corrupt government so they can lead better lives south of the border???? If they become US citizens LEGALLY, hey they can have the rights of a US citizen. As I say, " me speak a no hablo spanish" ? get it.

Iam recently new to the site and cant believe what iam reading. I just want to know how can you people have such hatred and malice in your hearts. PLEASE REMEMBER 80 years ago the south was segregated and if your grand parents are still alive they can tell you what it was like.
we have come a very long way since then but we still have alot farther to go. I never thought in my wildest dreams that a black man would be president and every night i pray for our president and the turn around of this econemy.No one is 100% American PERIOD. The NATIVE AMERICANS are the only ones that are true Americans.

Just enforce the laws we already have! You know…start with the US Constitution!

Both of my parents emmigrated from Enlish speaking countries prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and they had to;
-be sponsored no welfare for immigrants if they were ill they or the sponsor paid up the medical bills.
-appear at a public school to demonstrate the ability to read or right in English.
-appear before an appointed medical review to prove you did not have a medical condition that would be a drain on U.S. Resources.
-Immigration quotas favored entry to those from certain countries. “Quota is filled.” meant if you wanted to be here try again or stay out. My father only wore a shamrock on St. Patricks Day for the religous significance and was burried with an American Flag pin on his lapel. My mom is occaisionally called a foreigner by pukes that haven’t been on the planet half as long as she’s been in this country and still never thought of going back

If you were to look at what people are being penalized for now, such as parents being arrested for disiplining thier children, and teachers at shools not being allowed to enforce the rules on disrutive and disorderly children, I would say that the message of there being no consequences for our next generation is being implimented as we speak. Bullies recieve a free pass while the ones they victimize get scolded, and suspended or expelled if they fight back. And we are a joke to the other nations because they see that we don’t enforce our laws. If we don’t enforce them, illegals will just keep pouring into this country and laugh at all of us that live here. In Massachusetts, the police can’t even ask the immigration status of someone that may be an illegal. How F***ed up it that?

I read CAM to mean people that invade INTO Mexico from Guatemala and El Salvador. The Mexicans don’t put up with that, but they get upset when Americans do the same.

I feel I own the Hispanic and Asian population a note of ā€¯congradulations for achiving a better way of life here in this countryā€¯! while the born and bread Americans are being laid off and being replaced by your cheeper labor.
Every where I go I see you working in places where once true Americans worked. The labor satisics proves that white and black Americans are being laid off at a much higher rate that Hispanic or Asians. Way to go America!

OH yes it is!!! Where have you been or are you one of them? Look at Auntie Obama. Legal citizens can’t get help when they need it but the minute an illegal crosses the border they have instant help via food stamps, medical, cash aid and housing. That’s why they come to California.

No longer can politicians claim that illegal immigrants are needed to do jobs Americans will not do. We now have over 2 million legal citizens out of work! Thanks to NAFTA, AFTA, not addressing and STOPPING illegal immigration, and finally due to politicians voting based on contributions they receive. Makes one proud to be an American.

When we send back the illegals, we will have more jobs available to the real taxpayers. We always put in to the system and the illegals take our money out. Please send all of them back to their homeland and do not gave public aid to unwed illegal mothers and all of their children.

Obama when he first started his campaign he had inside help to get him past the vetting part from Pelosi , Reid, and Howard Dean and others along with ACORN fixing votes and the dead people that was voting. Obama had a charm that got the attention of the younger bunch that had never voted before. Obama had all his back ground sealed from the public. He lied about his connection to his church and the preacher also lied about him being a socialist liberal. He lied all through his campaign and he continues to lie even in office and every speech is full of lies. He wants to give amnesty to illegals so they can vote him another term in office. Obama is the worst POTUS than Carter ever was.

And also immigrants are not only mexicans.young people just want a chance at the American dream. I leave my house everyday and i see people who were born and raised in the US that have every thing they could ever want and end up not doing anything with their life
but i guess you people are ok with spending your good hard earned tax money on them. An AMERICAN SLACKER than do something to help a child go to college to better their life and contribute to society

My husband has been ban from entering the USA for 10 years. He is now currently in Mexico. I am an American Citizen. This is not right. This is not fair. My husband and I are law abiding tax paying people. We have 3 children. Adriana 14, Gabriel 9, and Miguel 5. Why should my children be apart from their father? We need immigration reform NOW!! I want my husband back!!

If they are illegal they don’t get benefits and they obviously do get in trouble as well. We also give our US natives free benefits also, I see no problem spreading the wealth to the worthy, if we have it.
Honey, we are the land of opportunity. Be accountable for yourself. Why shouldn’t people from other countries have the opportunity to have the things we have?
Is your argument that they’re stealing our jobs and getting our benefits? Some American people are poor, some are rich; Some American people are hard working and some are living off of the government’s freebies. There are less worthy Americans with this opportunity because they just so happen to be born here. Many immigrants are wanting better for themselves and will work hard for it, why in the world should it be denied to them?
We are a land, a melting pot, originating from immigrants. All men should be equal.

PS. “before it is TOO late”

You should find a more reliable source.

If you apply for government benefits such as the ones you are discussing, you obviously need to fill out forms. Forms of which the information would ask for things such as SSN. Illegal persons would not have that, therefore they could not possess said benefits. Many legal citizens get assistance, not everyone deserves the benefits and they won’t just fall in your lap.

Oh yes they do. Try going to a Human Services Office and see who comes in there for a change. You might be surprised. Americans are being cheated.

STYXPAT. You don’t know what you are takling about. No illegal immigrant becames free housing, food and sociual security. I don’t know from where you take this information. That’s not true.

if you are illegal and you are sick you go to the hospital? Who pays? Taxpayers
You have kids? enroll them in public schools, can’t turn them away. Who Pays? Taxpayers.
You have kids and can’t feed them? WIC, food stamps. Who pays? Taxpayers.
If you break the law in this country you have rights and if you cannot provide legal representation a lawyer is appointed by the court system. Who Pays? Taxpayers.

Now if you are an Illegal Alien, are you with me, do you pay taxes? if you don’t then I guess it is free then isn’t it! don’t pull my beans.

Obviously he was not a legal citizen or he broke the law. You should blame him for your children not seeing their father. We have an excelent immagration system. It is designed to restrict immigration by those who have nothing to contribute, and to keep out those that would be wards of the state. IE, all those that are underemployed and get welfare, foodstamps, use the emergency room at the hospital and give my address so they can’t be found. Sorry, my wife is also an immigrant. I had to do much paperwork and spend much money for her to follow me home. Then she did the necessary work to become a citizen. If you are not here to become a citizen you should not be here period.

RIGHT NOW there are over 100 foreign felons WORKING at Yamato Engines in Seattle. They got permits from ICE and the owners probation for a decade of felonys.
The millions of jobless and homeless Americians would beat you to a pulp if they got you on the street.

Check out the retainee’s in the jail in Washington County Arkansas. We are over-run with illegals. They get free lawyers. We have all kinds of illegal activities going on here. Rape-Murder-Credit Card Fraud-Forgery-DWI-Leaving the scene of accidents with no licenses and insurance-Drugs and weapons by certain people to list a few. We are being crapped on by those lawmakers who are not in danger every day like we are. Hope they never hit you while drunk and hurt or kill a family member while they run away. Drive by shooting are the normal more and more every day. We have had one person found burned up in the trunk of a car not far from my home. Am I happy? No way. Try to get a job here. I know several who have been looking for over a year. No to Illegals.
