The census Bureau Dr. Robert Groves director didn’t even deny there could be over 18 million illegal people squatting here, whereas the Liberal press still insists that we are only co-inhabiting with 11 million or so. Americans have been articulated that the fence is near completion—this is more BS. This isn’t even the actual fence as originally enacted into law as of the 2006 Secure Fence Act.  Underfunded, it was cut to one fence, instead of two equivalent fences.

What is coming is plain unadulterated—AMNESTY and nothing more. That you the taxpayer will inherit the huge costs, and even when this does come to a head—MILLIONS MORE WILL STILL KEEP COMING, WHEREVER BY LAND, SEA OR AIR. It’s imperative we remove all those pro-amnesty, anti-sovereignty lawmakers, before November. Start with Sen. Harry Reid, who has a large proportion of illegal workers and families living in Nevada. Because of the dire consequences of illegal immigration growth, we must be careful to watch who is voting in the mid-term elections. Nevada has the welcome mat for foreign nationals, that have infected the entertainment and construction industry, with a state fighting massive deficits. Arizona,  on the other hand cannot continue to subsidize the illegal aliens who have congregated there, with a police force that is unable to contain the spreading crime wave. Across this nation absentee ballots are easily compromised and illegal immigrants may try to vote keep corrupt incumbents in Washington. Now is the very time to warn you’re federal, state representatives that you as a voter in watching their every move. Call to determine where they stand on what is sadly called Immigration Reform at 202-224-3121

What immigration reform means? The last Amnesty was a travesty of the “Rule of Law” We are still paying for the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli bill. When this law was sanctioned, it was supposedly contained employer enforcement? The law was ignored and millions still came to America, drawn by jobs. Only a permanent, federally mandated E-VERIFY in the workplace can begin to remove illegal workers out of America by ATTRITION. The 3 million who were legitimized turned into about 6 million, along with the “Chain migration” so that immediate family members could join the original sponsor. The guarantors signed a declaration that those they sponsored wouldn’t become a welfare liability. This didn’t materialize and the chain migration family members, ended up a taxpayers problem. The same law that we inherited to stay any more new illegal arrivals, has been absolute BS. Since 1986 we are still being invaded by millions?

Sorry, we missed your input...

TucsonSentinel.com is an Arizona nonprofit organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible.

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.
