With Americas rising jobless and Americas13 trillion dollar deficit, it is our duty to look after our poor citizens-residents first. We should not be welcoming another million a year into the workforce, unless they have credentials of the highest caliber. The Agrarian business owner must be held accountable, for every guest worker in his pay. He must be put on notice that he is responsible for health care and other services—NOT TAXPAYERS!  A labor permit allows the foreign national to be employed with rigid instructions, that there is no path to citizenship or—AMNESTY. If they desert their position picking crops, they must be deported.  AMERICAN TAXPAYERS HAVE BECOME THE PAYEE FOR BUSINESS OWNERS.

The Tea party, moderate conservatives, independents and even more empathetic Democrats have seen their rights given to them by their forefathers being eroded by the portentous shadow of Liberal progressives. The governing majority with Sen. Reid (D-NV) demanding Amnesty for the 20 to 30 million aliens in our country must join a long list of other corrupt legislators. The tide has finally turned and the border must be sealed, against overpopulation. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) will be ejected first, as he has carried out his power to weaken E-Verify, federal local detainment law 287(g. On a state level many Democratic Senators and representatives will be joining Reid in the American workers jobless line. City governors such as mayors should join the party as well.

Demand they follow the “Rule of Law” People who comment should stand up to the plate and bombard their federal lawmakers at 202-224-3121 NumbersUSA has an immigration grading system showing who should not be reelected. Facts, figures and other statistics at Immigration Counters.

It is Time to clean house in November and any primaries elections forthcoming? The illegal immigration ultimatum began when Scott Brown crushed Democrat, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley. This is warning to Liberal-Communist Democratic-Republican thinkers, who believe we should let the rest of the world into America, without penalty. The Grand Canyon state has been under incredulous hardship as being the first step by illegal aliens and criminals, before they branch out into every corner of the United States. California cities as many—Sanctuary Cities—throughout America are equally to blame for subsidizing illegal alien families. Arizona’s lawmakers under the direction of State Sen. Russell Pierce finally had no choice, but to try and impose immigration policies, because the federal government has been reined back by powerful influences given campaign dollars, favors from corporate bankers. Then outside the business community, is the dark side of large radical groups, led by the La Raza entity. The ACLU has background of being pro-Communist and will sue any small poor community as a backlash of any laws that severs local government in stopping the occupation of illegal foreigners into our sovereign nation.

The Catholic church and other religious groups have seen the emergent block of foreign nationals to fill pews in their shrinking congregations—all part of the open border agenda.  No state has remained untouched in supporting monetarily illegal aliens and families. According to FAIR, (Federation for American Immigration Reform) Illegal Immigration expenditures have reached $113 Billion annually as a Drain on U.S. Taxpayers. With a very large plus of $60 billion dollars earned by illegal aliens in the U.S. each year. This being Mexico’s largest revenue streams (after exports and oil sales) consists of money sent home by legal immigrants and illegal aliens working in America.

A submarine.  Now there’s a great idea.  Even though the Santa Cruz is a “navigable river,” such a smuggling device would most likely work best up and down the east coast of the U.S.  Let the liberals in New England deal with this for a while.  See if they finally understand what we’re dealing with here.

Sorry, we missed your input...

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.


Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
