Obama administration tougher on immigration than previously thought

August 24, 2009 by  

Obama administration tougher on immigration than previously thought A new report from Syracuse University appears to contradict the claims that the Obama administration is lax on immigration enforcement. In fact, it has noted an upward trend in the number of criminal prosecutions filed during the last few months.

The study conducted by the university’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse found that there were 2,147 new prosecutions referred by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in May – a 19 percent increase from April – and the May total was 30 percent higher than that recorded in May 2008.

However, although 55 percent of the prosecutions were filed for immigration offenses, and 33 percent resulted from drug offences, the report found no cases were brought against employers under the statute that makes it illegal to hire an undocumented alien.

Unsurprisingly perhaps, Southern districts led the way with the highest number of prosecutions, with Arizona recording 314 new cases, the Western District of Texas 303 and the Southern District of California 293.

New Mexico, Central California and Miami, Florida, were also in the top 10 districts in May.

ICE is an agency of the Department of Homeland Security.

      Thereal enemy is the right wing GOP . People need to wake up and get to building some presure on the politicos to do the right thing for the Citizens instead of the Corporations.Like that could ever happen.

        Dude, how much Obama kool-aid did you drink? The guys that kept you safe are the real enemy? Dont think so.

        You are one sad, sad, little person. Don’t tell me, you wrote your opinion from a hand-me-down laptop as you sit in your rented house with your leased car (at best) parked outside, with no desire or motivation to go out and make a good living for yourself. You’re obviously not a real go-getter making a great salary. If you were, you’d be “right”.

        If you hate corporations so much, I think you should, for starters, stop using the internet. Google, Yahoo, AOL, MSN – all evil corporations who should be run out of town. Get rid of your car because – again – big greedy auto makers (sans GM) and oil companies – very evil. Quit eating food that you buy from the store! Because farmers are mostly right-leaning conservative men and women and they are evil, right?

        No more pills when your in pain or are sick! No way, Jose! Those pharmeceautical companies are evil in its purest form! Boycot, I tell ya!!! And when you’re precious president and his band of criminal “czars” get this whole health care thing passed and you or one of your kids falls ill with cancer or your wife discovers a lump, better just grab yourself a copy of that death panel and read it because you’re going to be waiting a helluva long time to see that encologist. (Who was hand-selected by Uncle Sam just for you!)

        If you don’t have anything, I guess you’ve got nothing to lose! I will DIE to protect what’s mine before I hand it over to a lazy, no-good, bum looking for a handout. Screw that!!!!

        • eyeswideopen

          Karen,
          So, I guess you think that only Republicans are responsible for anything that is good in this country? You are exactly why our party is decreasing in membership. Our party had control for 11 consecutive years from 1995 to 2006 and we didn’t bother to reform : immigration, education, energy, healthcare, etc. etc.. all we did was hand a tremendous deficit to the incoming party.We passed Medicare Advantage in 2003 to the tune of 1.2 trillion dollars, and made Big Pharma a 200billion profit per year. You might want to do a little research and see that many people from the libertarian, independent, democratic and republican parties are responsible for the greatest standard of living in the world, not just us repubs.

          • http://msn Freckles

            I would suggest that you start banging your head against a wall maybe you can knock some common sense into yourself! This is not about Repubs and Dems this is about the GOVERNMENT taking control of our economy, and there is a panel of 27 pple, with only 1 Dr. who will be deciding whether you are viable enough for the medical care you will receive. The counseling will be mandated for every five years, and if you are not going to be a burden they won’t suggest that you commit suicide.

            The Obamadeathcare, panel will also decide that if your child is not 2 years of age, you will not be allowed to have any care if your child has a life threatening disease, or health problem. Your child would not be a truly viable person, until the age of 15 then they would be given any amount of care as the cost to get them to that age would be considerable.

            If you haven’t even attempted to read the Obamadeathcare bill, then you should consider yourself as uneducated regarding the bill, and don’t have the ability to discuss the issue with any degree of intelligence. This bill is so scary, no one in their right mind would even consider it except to have more power and ability to take more of our freedom’s from us.

            If I want to die, or have a dibilitating condition, I want to make a decision on my own, and with my family. To consider your own death is a very private thing and no one should have the right to invade that privacy. The politician’s that are trying to shove this down our throats are not going to have the Obamadeathcare. This is just more power in the hand’s of Government.

            Please read the bill and then you will see why everyone is so ticked off. This is not health care, this is Obamadeathcare and it is taking all the power of any decision making out of your hand’s and putting it into the hand’s of the government.

          • Karen

            Actually, eyeswideshut, I believe this country needs to get back to that vital collection of papers known as “The Consitution”. You’re absolutely right, it’s not about blue or red, it’s about liberty, freedom, the “persuit”, and it’s about the GOVERNMENT operating as if its people will throw them out if they get too powerful. Go read that document and let me know if you believe this administration is going to fulfill its duties as supporters of the Consitution, or if Obamacare and “The Constitution” should even be used in the same sentence.

        Suddencall when are you going to wake up? Certainly we need to fix a lot of problems but for crying out loud WHY do you all think rich people are all evil? I ask you has a poor person EVER given you a job? Get rid of all the rich and who are going to foot the bill for all the free loaders or which we have many and of which the “WORKING” class, WORKING for the rich people have paid taxes to take care of the generations of those that want everything given to them. Think about it for a little while. Get party affiliations OUT of you head for just a little while and think about it. What EVERYONE has to do is stop looking for a handout, get off the couch, go to school, learn a trade anything and quit waiting for someone to take care of you. I have had to work for everything I have ever gotten. Many times 16 hours a day, sometimes with no days off for 3 weeks. It is what you have to do to make it. For this I am to pay taxes which (although suppose to be a temperary thing, yeah right) for people who won’t even TRY to help themselves. I am sorry, but the way it is going, before this is all over and we are all sitting on the couch who is going to pay taxes for the free loaders? OH wait our bankrupt government is going to do that for us NOT!!!!! Our politicians (both party’s are to blame for EVERY PROBLEM this country has) and the labor unions have sent all our jobs overseas and now we say “oh wait, we don’t have any jobs, DUH) China is now LENDING us money thanks to our crooks in DC. China will be wise to study what our govenment has done to us behind our backs for the last 3 decades and learn a lesson. Greed and free handouts are the perfect way to ruin a country. A country that had it ALL and is now going down the tubes so fast there is no way to recover.

      • Carol

        Actually we are ourselves our own worst enemy because we have stood by and let this happen by doing NOTHING all these years. Was sat and watched and heard “this so and so bill was passes last month, giving this away and that away” and we all did nothing. Just shrugged our shoulders and said well, it is our govenment they know what is best. And so it goes on and on with us doing nothing. NOW we wake up, finally when we realize hey…this is real….we are fixing to loose our freedome here folks. Please pray to God to save this country.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      Im with you man. I dont believe it either. Do you really think we can believe any polls that come in with these people in power? I would not put it past them to threaten anyone with releasing any info contrary to what they want people to think. The left wing liberal pacifist appeasing think tank is a dangerous, dangerous thing, and we need to wake up and tear it down in 2010 and 2012.

      • Carol

        Amen Beberoni, With VERY few exceptions they all need to be voted out. Check your Representatives voting record have they have been voting agaist the American people get rid of them Like wise if you have always voted one party or the other and you live in a state that is having major problems (such as California and Mass) and the SAME party has been in power and you have more and more problems…Time to vote them OUT. THAT my friends is CHANGE these Sen & Congressment that have sat there for years and years screwing your state and country over and over again have to go I don’t care what party they are. If we are going to salvage what is “possible” left of our country the far left and the far right citizens are going to have to stop fighting and come together to solve these problems that have been in the works for decades. We haven’t had a decent president in so long I doubt any of us can even remember who or when that was. I can not. They have all played the game against us and DC has gotten so out of control. They ALL each of them think we are idiots. Or as they refer to us “as the illerate masses. And that is a factual quote heard by my uncle, a pilot, who flew Con & Sen around the country. They think we are all stupid and sheep. Well, they are so darn shocked that American’s have come out to make a stand against. It took them awhile to figure out hey, this real, these serfs are actual mad about this. SHOCK they are actually going to challenge us? How dare they. Anyway, this isn’t REALLY about health care and our government doesn’t really care if we have it or not. This is about total government control. They have a major part of the banking industry and the car industry through bail outs. Once they have health care they will have total control over the serfs. Our country will DEFINANTLY go into bankruptsy which is the objective, panic will take over everyone (Think Katrina only statewide) and then that is it. We are no long the United States Of American, no longer Land of the Free. We have been the envy of EVERY country in the world. They all hated us, they were jealous of us. Now they laugh their asses off at us and will probably applaud as we sink into the s__t hole that is to come if we don’t stand up and fight for our rights. It is almost too late people. This is VERY real. Quit being sheep

    • Amanda

      Sorry Skeeter,ar you native american ?

  • DEC

    Thats BS. Napolitano gutted 287g rules so now only VIOLENT criminals or major drug dealers will be deported. ICE is letting many illegals go if their offense is minor (like DUI’s, driving without a license or insurance, domestic abuse, sexual deviancy, etc. ya know, all the Unimportant stuff). ALL immigration laws should be enforced, no matter what the crime is. If you are arrested, you should be checked for citizenship and deported if you cannot prove citizenship. And thes tory says “no cases were brought against employers”. Big surprise there! Restart the workplace raids and mandate E-Verify! ICE has said it takes YEARS to build a case against an employer. All the employer has to do is play stupid and say they didn’t know the person was illegal. That one word “Knowingly” is the Get Out of Jail Free card for business. Just enforce the darn laws already !!

    • Earlw

      The first and second articles are right on! there is another one. All the furor about health care costs, and no one is talking much about the cost of treating all the Illegals, who use the ER for their clinic as well as their delivery room. The figures, which you can look up for yourself show a huge cost is represented by them! Eliminate or refuse to treat, and the medical crisis will take care of itself.

      Another area where costs could be cut is SS. It wasn’t a retirement program to begin with, so why not establish a MEANS test for need? My Father was retired military and said he didn’t need his, so he banked his check every month…Even retired senators and congressmen get it! At 200,000 bucks a year, I think they could prepare for their own retirement..

      Ditto for medicare! I am retired and on SS and my wife covers me on her policy, so I declined Medicare…Saved me 96 bucks a month, too!
      If I can do it, why can’t others? BTW I ain’t rich! Just a Tradesman.

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        Not only do these elected to congress get a lifetime pension, making more than they did working, they dont pay taxes either. So they dont need social security money, and it should be taken away, as if they cant retire on their huge pensions, that they shouldnt be getting anyways, then God help them.

      • C Lee

        Ok SO YOU ARE COVERED BY YOUR WIFE BUT WHAT ABOUT THE PENALTY YOU WILL PAY WHEN YOU DO NEED MEDICARE. iF YOU DONT TAKE IT WHEN YOU ARE ELIGABLE YOU PAY AN INCREASED PREMIUM.

        • Earlw

          That is incorrect…….I asked first of the SS office, and went to the local office and asked again. they assured me that would not be the case, and that if starting it up later, it could only be done during the open enrollment period. I specifically asked about what you speak of annd was told no, as long as I spoke with them first…

        • eyeswideopen

          The mis-information out there is why we have so many people spewing hate….it is truly unbelievable.

  • ONTIME

    Have they secured the border, are they using E Verify are they going to deport the illegals that have been living on our dime in an underground economy, are they going to expose those politicians that are using both sides of immigration to take money and stay in office?

    I wouldn’t want to bet on any of their efforts.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      And are they going to quit taking our social security money and giving to illegal aliens to help them here? Are they going to quit giving them free medical care and upping the levels of payment the rest of us make? I doubt it. In fact, on top of all this, the left somehow registers them to vote and they get to vote democrat, even though they are illegal here. How does this work? I dont get it.

  • http://aol Wunder

    I totally agree … this article is pure, unadulterated BS. Why is Obama’s aunt still here living off of our dime? Send her home or let Obama take care of her (and that doesn’t mean move her into the White House).

    This site is leaning to the left. I think they have been baught by the Obama goons.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      Not me brother. I aint never going to be no left wing pacifist appeasing pants wetting little girl that kisses the butt of our enemies and wants to play nice with them so they wont hurt us, then curls up in the fetal position and cries for mommy, or sucks their little thumbies and points their finger and says “Look what Bush did”. Im sick of the left wing victim mentality, and it has to go.

    • eyeswideopen

      You are so wrong, this site is noting but a bunch of rt wingers, with myself as the lone Republican who is not filled with hate…

  • aganadagnu

    There is always a time in the growth of a nation or business to exploit people in the form of slavery or cheap labor.
    If USA carries on this way it is because of cheap labor. States vary in enforcement of labor laws. Syracuse’s report is neither here nor there

    • Earlw

      No one forced them to cross the border OR to take an exploitative job! they did so voluntarily. I have lived long enough to know that those “jobs that Americans won’t do” were in fact, done by Americans before they were given to border-crossers. A business will ALWAYS hire the lowest cost employee if they are able. The state of our economy for some time now has made it NECESSARY to hire migrants ( or go out of business). The real enemy here is the bankers/economic managers/federal reserve destroying the value of money.

      The only reason they get the jobs instead of Americans is they are willing to live 10 to a room and eat beans and rice every day. Mexico is simply exporting it’s unemployment rather than deal with it. They ACTIVELY promote and aid crossers headed north.

      I personally don’t give a damn what color or race someone is, so don’t even go there.

      Lastly, let’s tackle the isue of La Raza, Mecha, and Movimiento Estudiantil de aztlan, and othere who state that it is their INTENT to re-colonize the southwest, and BREED us out of existence! THAT is a declaration of war!!! Don’t believe me, check out their websites and related reportage, You’ll become a believer real quick!!

      • C Lee

        i HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR A FORUM TO EXSPRESS THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS AND I GUESS I FOUND IT. FIRST OF ALL IAM RETIRED. SECONDLY I WORKED FOR A MED. SIZED CONSTRUCTION CO. IS SOUTHWEST FLORIDA FOSEVERAL YEARS. I WAS WHAT WAS KNOWN AS AN AREA MANAGER RESPONSABLE FOR THE DAY TO DAY ACTIVITIES OF APPROX. 150 MEN WHICH WERE ALL MEXICAN. ALL OF WHICH WERE UNSKILLED LABOR UNTILL I TRAINED THEM IN THEIR VARIOUS JOBS. OF ALL OF THESE MEN WORKING UNDER ME THE LEAST NUMBER I KNEW OF LIVING TOGETHER AND POOLING THEIR RESOURCES WERE SIX THERE WERE AS MANY AS 12. IN SOUTH FLORIDA SOMEONE SET UP A CHECK CASHING ON WHEELS TYPE ENDEVOR AND EVERY FRIDAY ONE OF THESE MANY UNITS OF WHICH WERE OLD BRINKS ARMORD CARS WOULD SET UP AT THE VARIOUS JOB SITES EVEN IN ONE OF THE LOCAL HOMEDEPOT PARKING LOTS. THEY WOULD CASH THE GUYS CHECKS AND EVERY MAN WORKING FOR ME WOULD CASH HIS CHECK AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANOTHER SERVICE THEY OFFERED WHICH WAS WESTERN UNION.

        • C Lee

          THE AVERAGE GUY WOULD SEND 80 PERCENT OF HIS MONEY TO HIS FAMILY IN MEXICO AND KEEP 20 PERCENT TO SURVIVE ON. THE MEDIUM PAY WOULD BE AROUND 600 TO 800 DOLLORS PER WEEK. TIMES 150 MEN DO THE MATH. THESE GUYS WOULD SHOW ME PICTURES OF HOMES THEY WERE BUILDING BACK IN MEXICO THAT I COULD NEVER EVEN DREAM OF HAVING MYSELF. NONE OF THIS IS HERESAY I LIVED IT. WHEN THE B OTTOM DROPPED OUT THE ONLY TWO AMERICAN BORN CITIZENS WERE THE FIRST TO GO MYSELF AND MY SON WHICH WAS A SUPERINTENDENT UNDER ME. GO FIGURE. WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THE ILLEGAL MEXICANS DOING WORK THAT WHITE PEOPLE WONT DO IT ENRAGES ME. AND DONT THINK IAM A RACESIST BECAUSE IAM NOT.

          • C Lee

            BUT WHEN PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THEM DOING THESE JOBS IVE EVEN HEARD THE POLITICIONS REFER TO IT AS JOBS A WHITE MAN WONT DO. WELL I SEE IT AS IN THIS COUNTRY WE ARE GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXCELL AND ADVANCE OURSELVES AND BECOME ACCUSTOME TO A CERTAIN LIFESTYLE. IN DOING THIS WE ARE ACUSTOME TO THE RATE OF PAY ESTABLISHED OVER THE YEARS. THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN ILLEGALLS START FLOODING THE MARKET HENCEFORTH SUBSTANDARD WAGES. NOW HOW DO WE PAY OUR BILLS ITS NOT THAT WE WONT WORK AND DO THE JOB ITS THAT WE CAN NO LONGER AFFORD TO. SO NEXT TIME YOU JUMP OUT THERE WITH THAT BLANKET STATEMENT PUT YOUR BRAIN IN GEAR BEFORE ENGAGEING THE CLUTCH OF YOUR MOUTH.

          • eyeswideopen

            Your company employed illegals to make as much profit that they could, you didn’t turn them into the authorities? You stood by and allowed this to happen and then complain? When ethics and integrity are thrown out the window, it is hard for people who have to abide by the rules, and laws to feel sorry for them. Your company, made a bigger profit, which allowed them to give you and your son probably a bigger salary, they competed with my company who obeyed the rules , made less profit and paid me less and you are complaining??? Get a grip. Every one complaining about illegals and nobody doing a damn thing except also profiting….lol

          • Carol

            C Lee speaks the truth Eyeswideshut, I do not know how his company works, but my sister emplyees Mexican labor in her business. She REQUIRES each and every one of them to give her a Social Security number and proceeds to take out taxes. She reports the number immediatly. Most often, after much elaped time she receives as notice that the person’s SS # is not valid. Now SHE has been taking out the taxes AND paying her part for each and every one of them as she is suppose to. The gov then breaks their neck to REFUND to the illegal any taxes they paid, but KEEPS, I said KEEPS the money my sister, A AMERICAN business owner has paid in for them while they make sure they are give the money BACK to the illegal. Now that is helping our American isn’t it folks?
            And yes I know it to be very true they send their money home, stay here (and mind you they do WORK, which is more than I can say for some folks) but they still suck off our gov in every way they can, build wonderful homes and then leave and retire on Uncle Sam back in Mexico. ( I know because I know some that have done just that) They are not cheap labor, they cost taxpayers dearly. Actually when it is all figured up they have more money in their pockets than the average 18.00 an hour tax paying citizen does after paying taxes.
            I personally like most Mexican people, I think they are hard working individuals that are only trying to feed their families. But it is not our fault they come from such a crupt contry that only takes care of the very few and leaves the rest to starve. We have TRIED forever to take care of the world, and look where it has gotten us. We are BROKE and you can bet the world will not come to our aid. They will NOT…we will stand alone in the end mark my words.I have been to many foreign countries, they for the most part hate us. Call it what you like they are all jealous of us, and that is a fact. Well, correction they were jealous, now they laugh at our weekness

          • eyeswideopen

            Carol, first of all I give you respect by calling you carol, would appreciate the same from you.
            Did you not get the wholed idea? Why employ them, if you suspect they are illegal?? What in the hell is wrong with you people, you can’t complain about how they spend their money, when you are contributing to the problem.. by employing them. It is against the law to even employ them. By companies employing them you are driving down the wages of legal Americans. If they couldn’t find work , they would go home….Business that employ them are just after higher profits for themselves and they can’t complain about a damn thing!!

  • Philip, from Oregon

    First you have to ask your self, is the group that came up with the figures left, right or center? And then you can decipher the real content. I’ve a feeling that the Syracuse university is probably left leaning, so I would take their story with a grain of salt.Polosi, Reid, and Napolitano, are just train wreaks, they do not need to be in the places of authority. And the obamanation, talk about abuse of office, he just keeps pushing and pushing, I can’t wait until mid terms and the general elections.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      99.9 percent of any so called center of higher learning is run by the left wing. Why do you think they dont allow Bible studies at most colleges, but mandate reading the Koran and tolerance? Yeah, thats how they are. Pacifist appeasers democrats.

      • eyeswideopen

        So, now I guess you are stating that only Republicans are Christians? Holy crap, this country is in deep trouble. The laws don’t want us Christians to shove our beliefs down the throats of people who believe differently. That also means, Catholics, Mormons, Baptists, Lutherans, Jews, you know all the many religions in the US. That is why they don’t allow us to publically read ,prior to classes starting, the bible. There is nowhere in this country that forces anyone to read the Koran. Why must you lie? Are that insecure about your party and religion? Maybe you should be, the Christian religion has already lost 10% of its membership in 4 yrs and our Republican party is decreasing on a daily basis.

        • Carol

          We have Never read the bible in school come on…but we did say the pledge of allegiance and we were allowed to pray if we wanted to. These are the principles OUR country was founded on. Read your Constitution. Young people today barely know what it is…….they have all but taken it out of schools. Not “Politically Correct” There’s that word again.
          I am not the least bit apposed to someone who comes here legally, they are free to work, go to school and practice their religion. What they are NOT free to do is us stop our customs, or take down our flag, or stop us from worshiping our GOD. They came here for freedom, but got their freedom at our expense. Sure they have rights what about our freakin rights. NO WHERE in the world can you move in and start pushing your crap on someone else and the citizens just roll over and cow down. They all have their churches and their beliefs but I don’t want them crammed down my throat. Why do WE have to be ashamed of our beliefs…that is what it has come to.

      • eyeswideopen

        You also must mean that their are no teachers, administrators etc. that aren’t Democrat’s. I’ll have to tell my Republican professor friends that they need to resign right away..A Principal lives right next door, I’ll have to tell her to quick, she needs to change her party to the left, or stop running the middle school… Radical thinking.

  • Billy Murry

    They are totaly wrong on their report. It can’t be right when he
    made arrangements to spend 23.6 Million dollars to bring Packistanans
    (Hamas) to the United States. Some more that we(the tax payers) have to keep up. They certainly think the American people are stupid (Just because so far they haven’t said anything). Believe me when I say they have had enough—–As you will soon see.

    The day b o does something right or responsible is the day I’ll admit he’s not a total waste of a prez. However, as is the case with all ultralibs, what you see is what you’re supposed to see.
    Has b o done ONE thing to CLOSE our open borders? If the answer is NO (most likely, that’s exactly the case), then the idea that he’s getting tough on immigration (illegal or otherwise) is another hyped example of a prostituted media doing its best to suck up to one of the ‘best and brightest.’
    Bush made the same, irresponsible mistake with open borders. That is, he would talk about it, but he DID NOT act on it. B O is doing the same irresponsible thing. It must be utterly humiliating for ultralibs to admit that b o and GB have something in common.

  • sonny

    All our politicians have one thing in comnmon, they cater to the hispanic vote. If our politicians were honest and had any guts they would pass a law that would not allow anyone born on american soil to be a U.S. citizen. This would cut into the $11 billion dollars spent on illegal aliens on healthcare and do away with some of the $100 billion dollars in healthcare fraud each year in this country. They are not the solution, they are the problem. Your have 545 people telling 300 million americans how to live.

    • eyeswideopen

      So,if you want a law “that would not allow anyone born on american soil to be a U.S. citizen”, how would anyone become a citizen??? I quoted you and I’m not sure that’s what you meant, or maybe it is?

  • Jane

    When Obama closed “Quantanamo” he hadn’t an idea where to send the prisoner’s. Now he wants to pass a “Healthcare Bill” and it hasn’t occured to him where all the new Dr.’s are coming from. Do you see a pattern here? I’m not racist at all, but this country is in trouble partly due to all the money (American’s) have spend on illegals. We work our butts off and they do nothing but, put out their hand. If our present Government has their way, all of Mexico will come over.

      Take a Chill Pill Jane! They haven’t closed Gitmo yet.. not until they figure out where to put the prisoners. Secondly, the current health care system is unfair, too expensive and puts us at the Mercy of some Rich CEO who cares more about the company’s net profit which increases company stock prices, and earns him/her a bigger quarterly or annula Bonus on top of a multi-millioin dollar salary.

      The insurance companies came Go To Hell!! I don’t trust them, and I welcome a second choice besides the employer’s plan … so give me a public option and “f” the insurance companies!

  • Sylvia Rodriquez

    HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAND IN LINE BEHIND 12-20 MILLION ILLEGALS WAITING TO BE TREATED UNDER OBAMA’S HEALTH CARE. THE LONG LINES WOULD BE EVEN LONGER AND GUESS WHO GETS TREATED FIRST–THE YOUNG MEXICANS WHEN OUR SENIORS ARE GIVEN THE PILL!!!!!

    • hopeforamerica

      TO: Sylvia Rodriquez- Get the Facts Straight! No where in any version of the (4) bills floating out there does any of them say we would be paying for illegal Aliens!! And in response to the article, I agree Pres Obama is coming down hard on illegals. The feds are busting the companies that hire the illegal aliens… and that’s just the way it should be. As long as employers continue to look the other way and hire illegal aliens, then the incentive for more illegals to come to the US will continue. Illegal aliens come to the US for work. They would stop coming if there wasn’t any work. Additionally, I think that we should continue to have a guest program for workers such as those in Mexico who come to the US to work during harvest (agriculture) cycles.

      • Carol

        hopeforamerica You are very correct No where in the bill does it say illegals with get free health care. What you fail to notice is NO WHERE does it say they DO NOT. Therefore, once passed they will all get it because it does not say they don’t. Once again Lawyers writting laws with loop holes. They WILL get free health care that is a fact. It does however say anyone presently on Medicade (and that is most illegals) WILL AUTOMATICALLY RECEIVE FREE HEALTH CARE. Now if you do not believe me, time for you to get the bill yourself and read it instead of being a sheep with stars in your eyes and saying, it has to be true cause that is what BO said and he wouldn’t lie to us. Yeah right think again. Go on read it yourself

        • Smilee

          It does say they will not get health care, more misinformation from the uninformed

    One day I attended the state caucas as a deligate. I was so amazed that the discussion in a huge arena seemed like it was Democrats on one side and Republicans on the other side. It was actually the liberals and conservatives of the same party arguing/discussing the planks of the proposed platform of the party.
    Since,I have concluded there are like minded people of most all parties who first believe in common sence and GOD and the family first which used to be “The American Way”. As long as the politicians can keep us happy bitching about whats happening rather than doing something, they will act scared and keep on feathering their nests.I find it absolutely preposterus that they can vote a rule for us and then excempt themselves from that same rule.
    We need to figure out a way of getting all the like minded “American thinking people” together so we will be taken seriously and hand these career politicians of all parties their walking papers.
    Personally I’m sick of them and would sacrifice anything I have to get them out of my hair and leave my kids a true chance at living in an America as our Fathers fought and died for.
    Any Ideas?

    • Carol

      Amen Tim It is the only way to save us. Get out and go to the tea party’s and town hall meeting. Let your voice be heard. We want our govenment to READ THE CONSTITUTION……..AND GO BY IT

  • hopeforamerica

    Sorry for my “typos” on my previous posts! :]

  • hopeforamerica

    Question for those on this Blog:

    How many of you work or family works for Insurance companies?????????

    I read where the insurance companies are forcing employees to attend townhall meetings and protesting a public option! The insurance companies profit margins will drop if we have a public option… and CEO salaries will probably drop too.

    • Carol

      This is a LIE I have many friends that work for insurance company’s and this is not true. What is true is our adminstration is actually PAYING protesters to come in and try to stir up trouble, This is very true and you all should quit listening to the lies in the media, they are hurting you so much. They thought we would go away, but we are honest hard working people, standing up for our Constition, they are scrared that we are making a difference and they are using all kinds of underhanded tactics to make us look bad. We are not bad, we are trying to save our country. The county our forefathers crossed the ocean to shape and form into the greatest country in the world. And it has slowly been changed by lawyers making laws with loop holes to swing a vote any way they seem fit. Anyway to help out the company, person etc that came in with the most goodies to line their pockets. Look at them they are all RICH every last one of them. They ask you to remain poor (and enable you to be poor by giving you just enough to keep you on their side) Think about it. These bills they pass they do to make themselves RICH all of them with very few exceptions.

      • Smilee

        Boy are you one mixed up gal, the administration is paying for it, ridiculous. You tell more lies than all you accuse of lying put together. It amazes me how little the truth means to some people.

        • Carol

          Smilee I am not a liar Sir. Name calling is so juvenile and accomplishes nothing. Good constructive debate perhaps, but not name calling
          I am not a tea party radical, I LOVE my country, I am a Patriot, I am a Christian, I am a self employed hard working person who has for my entire adult life paid for my own private health care. Can I afford the best, not on your life. Would I love to have the best, you bet I would. Is the government going to give that to me? Not on your life. Perhaps they live in a dream world like you do, and they really want to do that. In my heart and feel that is not the case, they just want total control. We simply can not afford it and we all know it. You all know it, why do you pretend this is something that will be good? I just don’t get it.
          Myself and millions of American’s are guilty of working hard and doing NOTHING to stop our elected official while they voted on ludicrous bills. Giving themselves pay raises, retirement benefits that are so magnificent, and living the life style of the rich and famous. They pass laws to grant Social Security to people who never worked here a day in their lives. Let illegal’s in the country and give them freebies we can’t begin to touch. We can send a man to the moon and back….but we can’t build a fence to keep out illegal’s? We have allowed a handful of people to take God out of the schools, while we sat back and said nothing. We allow a woman to loose a beauty contest because she believes that a marriage is only between and man and a woman. She was asked a question on her opinion, in a supposedly free country. She gave her opinion and was mocked, laughed out and thrown out. Do these things not give you pause? I could go on and on with examples of what they have voted in and how they have started to take away our Constitutional rights, while letting people come into this country and get away with murder, because they are offended by our flag, or don’t like our religious holidays etc. We look up to Hollywood freaks as idles. We have to be “politically correct” Well, enough is enough. It is time for intelligent people to get their heads out of the clouds and take a stand.
          So you call me a radical tea party fanatic if you want to. Your opinion is your own, but I personally could not live with myself if I continued to sit by and loose this country without at least trying to fight for it.
          This administration does NOT have your best interests at heart. It is so evident, what do they have to do hit you in the face? They are trying to take away free speech, and put people in positions of power that are so radical, and will one day control every aspect of our lives. I just don’t get why so many of you can not see it. Is something for nothing so important to you that you would sell your soul for scraps?
          When it sounds too good to be true…………………..well, you know the rest of the story

        You “tea party” radicals are hurting yourselves.
        The American medical system is a disaster. If you are rich(maybe 10 million net worth)it’s great, or if your an upper level government employee – no sweat. Pick the best hospitals and the best doctors.
        For the rest of us its a hit or miss, illogical system in which insurance companies decide what’s good for you based on what’s good for them. Their upper management makes millions by denying care to those who need it. They raise their prices at will and provide very little competition among themselves. Our system costs the American people more than twice as much as any other system in the world while delivering below average care. If your employer pays your insurance, it’s with money that could go into your paycheck. Why can’t you see this?
        Going to tea parties and ranting does nothing for your cause. Select intelligent, informed, leaders and have them sit down, like human beings, to work out the best system possible.
        Next listen to what is being said by all sides. Don’t believe all you hear on hate radio and Fox spin TV. Remember Rush is a multimillion dollar entertainer. He can afford the best health care, and he has something to lose if taxes go up for the high rollers.

        • Brenda

          Carol, I can’t wait till next election. Let’s see how many true Americans stand up for our country. We need to vote them all out!!!
          UNITED WE STAND, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVIDUAL WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!!

      That’s a tabloid site, they are famous for lies

      • Carol

        Oh really can you prove that please

  • Carol

    Here is a little quote for you folks

    According to the Washington Post, Obama used the same standing political army earlier this year to gather signatures in support of his economic plan. The president asked his supporters to go “block by block and door by door” in every state.

    In March, when volunteers canvassed high-traffic locations in Birmingham, Ala., to support Obama’s health care, education and energy policies, one event organizer told the Birmingham News, “We are looking for supporters. We’re not looking for a fight. That will come later, when we have an army.”

    NOW WHY DOES HE NEED AN ARMY

    • eyeswideopen

      The poor boy meant an army of supporters. Fod God’s sake don’t take everything so literal and out of content.

      • Carol

        Why don’t you call yourself eyeswideshut

        • eyeswideopen

          Beacuse, I unlike you have an open mind and you are fortunate I am a Christian or I would have a different name for you!!!!!!

        • eyeswideopen

          Didn’t you just state to Smilee, that name calling is juvenille?? Another example of ??????

  • http://autorewriter.com race card

    It’s not the issue of immigration that’s divisive, is it the illegal immigrants themselves (and proponents of amnesty / open borders) who are divisive. They would rather divide and destroy the U.S. than lose their free lunch. That’s what kind of people they are.

  • M.L.

    OK PEOPLE STOP JUMPING ALL OVER EACHOTHER. THATS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT US TO DO, IT’S ALL PART OF THE PLAN. BOTTOM LINE: AMERICANS HAVE HAD THEIR IDENTIES STOLEN, LOST THEIR JOBS, HAD RAPES AND MURDERS BY THE THOUSANDS AND CAN BE SUED BY ANY ILLEGAL FOR ANYTHING THEY ACCUSE YOU OF. BILLIONS OF DOLLARS HAVE BEEN DISHED OUT FOR THEM, THE FREEBIES ARE SO NUMEROUS I COULDN’T POSSIBLY LIST THEM. WHEN THEY MARCHED THEY DISTROYED 20 STORE FRONTS AND THE STOCK INSIDE, PELTED COPS WITH ROCKS, SMEARED GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS WITH REFRIED BEANS AND DREW ALL OVER THE SIDEWALKS. tHEY BURNED AN AMERICAN FLAG AND CARRIED SIGNS THAT SAID, THEY WILL KILL POLICE AND ANY AMERICANS THAT GET IN THEIR BECAUSE WE ARE RACIST, AND FOR WHAT THEY CLAIM THEY HAD SUFFERED THEY SHOULD LIVE FREE OF TAXES, MED.CARE AND ANYTHING ELSE THEY NEED. IT MAKES YOU WONDER WHY WE SHOULD BE ANGRY. AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST ACCORDING TO THIS GOV. ALONG WITH THE ACLU AND MANY OTHERS, INSPITE OF IT ALL THEY ARE PROTECTED UNDER THE MANTLE OF RACIAL PROFILING.
