'Border security first' advocates block real immigration reform

The "border security first" mantra is a popular refrain in Congress these days. This singular focus is shortsighted. The only real solution to our dysfunctional immigration system is through comprehensive immigration reform.... Read more»

There are only one winner in this political immigration mayhem, the Democrats who gain future votes and Republicans who always get cheap labor. IT’S ABOUT GAIN, MONEY AND PROFIT. So what do ordinary Americans get-overpopulation-jammed highways, food shortages, energy problems and water shortages? Let’s not forget the need for more oil and more land to build more and more houses, apartments.

WE better carefully scrutinize future elections, as there has been an nefarious propagating trend of non-citizens voting in our elections. It’s being kept under the radar by the Liberal-Socialist-Marxist progressives, although it happened in New Mexico, Colorado, Texas and who knows where else? The government election agencies seemed not animated, do anything about it. We need strict oversight of the electoral system, which includes either a national government ID card or verification of any person registering to vote. At least 3 verifiable documents should be cross-referenced, with one picture ID? ACORN the ominous organization that the federal prosecutors had supposedly closed down is alive and well and still operating under different names. They were some of the instigators through veiled threats that caused the crash of the real estate industry and the millions of foreclosures. Using the term “Ninja mortgages” pushed the banks to offer low income, no asset or credit home loans. Read about for yourself, as millions of illegal alien families took advantage of this, when they had no way of affording the payments.

My guess is in overpopulated States of illegal aliens, as with California, Nevada, and New York the election process was undermined by fraudulent documentation. One of the easiest official voting documents to violate is the Absentee ballot, by numerous households being involved. Just read about voter fraud on any number of web pages, put forth by pro-sovereignty organizations. Our democracy is imminently threatened by this illegal immigration invasion and we have been programmed by the ultra-left to be good little citizens and overlook that they deviously entered this country? IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Our government is spoon feeding the illegal immigration, when we should think of their own survival. In the last twenty years or more, we have been silently invaded and taxpayers are paying the highest price. Billions of dollars are leaving America by wire transfer and hundreds of billions of dollars are being spent on “Foothold babies” and parents who don’t leave.  The US TEA PARTY is challenging the Lib-Democrat and Republican elites and will not stop until the rot, corruption and collusion is swept away.

We always need exceptional highly skilled workers that come to America not expecting to become as public charges and enter the line of welfare recipients. However—the majorities who are entering America are economic, with the low expectancy of earning a decent living and are quickly absorbed into the welfare lines. They are uneducated and costing the United States billions of dollars. According to the (GAO) The general Accounting office, illegal workers take back $3 to 4 dollars, for the 1 dollar they pay into the local treasuries. Only the top echelon of professional people should be admitted now and the TEA PARTY will make sure of this. Unknown to most law abiding citizens and legal residents there have been six undisclosed amnesties since the original volume amnesty of 1986. As if this wasn’t enough roughly over a million more faces appear every year, which is a fragrant disregard for the American people still seeking jobs.

Most of these legal immigrants are taking US jobs, when 9 million of our populace is living off welfare, unemployment relief or their own savings. Inside this relatively secret game is so much fraud, that only the TEA PARTY politicians have the empowerment to stop it. As just single voice trumpeting our arguments and complaints, neither party is listening. But as an organized resistance of growing tens of millions, the TEA PARTY is becoming its own party. THE TEA PARTY is everybody and perhaps you, as long as you entered this nation as a legal immigrant.

ATTN: Reps. Brian Bilbray (R-Calif.), Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), Jeff Landry (R-La.), and David McKinley (R-W.V.) have co-sponsored H.R.800, the E-LAW Act, which was introduced by Rep. John Carter (R-Texas). The bill would require all employers to use E-Verify on new hires and existing employees within two years. CALL YOUR SENATOR AND REPRESENTATIVE YOU WILL FIND IN THE BLUE PAGES OF YOUR PHONE DIRECTORY DEMANDING H.R.800. The bill also requires the Department of Homeland Security to take steps that remove fraudulent use of the E-Verify system such as illegal aliens using false identification. The bill also increases fines and penalties for employers that knowingly hire illegal aliens, and it reinstates the No-Match program that requires the Social Security Administration to notify employers and individuals where in individual is making contributions into their social security account from multiple employers.

“According to the (GAO) The general Accounting office, illegal workers take back $3 to 4 dollars, for the 1 dollar they pay into the local treasuries.”

Cite your references please.  I searched the GAO website the the only thing I could find was a paper from 1995 Titled “Illegal Aliens: National Net Cost Estimates Vary Widely”  http://www.gao.gov/archive/1995/he95133.pdf

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.
