I think it is great that we realize the credit that is due immigrants to our
states. All of us come from immigrants to this great country.But,
let's not allow ourselves to get confused on the difference between legal and
illegal immigrants.The illegals have created the situation that must
be addressed NOW.
The ONLY correct and relatively easy solution is to simply enforce the laws.However, just looking at the list of speakers it is clear that this is a
"pro-amnesty" rally.They will pay lip service to the
distinction between legal and illegal, but their actions will all be to subvert
our laws and grant amnesty on the pretext of "humanitarian" or
"social justice" or "don't hurt the children" excuses.The liberal media will come out in favor of all these schemes, and once
again law abiding and tax paying American citizens will suffer unequal
treatment.Please take 10 minutes out of this conference and make a
list of the laws that U.S. citizens should not have to obey, since you think it
is okay for others to get away with ignoring laws.
The usual suspects. Shurtleff, Chamber of Commerce, Catholic Church etc. This
story as usual tries to blur the line between legal and illegal. These suspects
are doing their best to make Utah the illegal magnet.
The first three commenters have hit the nail on the head. Let's just hope that
the participants of this conference know or are aware of the distinct difference
between Legal immigration and Illegal immigration. What is wrong with everyone
who comes here does so LEGALLY? Viva Legal immigration.
I think that this is absolutely wonderful!!!!!I think immigrants are
wonderful and bring so much to this country. They are hardworking, and they try
to immigrate at least somewhat into the country way of life here by learning the
language and getting legal jobs and paying all the different taxes and obeying
the laws of the land.Now ILLEGAL ALIENS is a whole different
As usual, our "out of touch with the people" bunch of
"leaders" are out in front of the immigration debate pushing veiled
amnesty. The last thing we need is to legalize the theft of millions of jobs and
make those who stole them legitimate and in the process make them eligible for
more handouts. This is nothing less than insanity on a grand scale. The states
who are enforcing the law are the real ones who are out in front of the debate,
they are doing exactly what needs to be done. Enforcement is clearly the
direction a majority of citizens want, stop kidding yourself and trying to make
the shoe fit. The Utah law will never be implemented, it is not going to pass
the legal test to begin with and Shurtleff and others who are pushing it are
going to be thrown out on their ears.
Illegal immigration is killing our country - plain as the nose on your face;
...and like an addict for heroin, the public craves federal money and other
funding, including work done by illegals. This has placed this country ar risk,
depleted resources, increased crime, and allowed threats to enter this country's
unprotected borders. Come on people, get a grip !!!!
So, this conference is once again about sugar coating the term illegal to
immigrants. Again, what part of "illegal" do these individuals not
understand? Why must we continue to cater to these illegals as if they are
wonderful immigrants? No other country in the world would be so kind and
generous. No other country would bend over backwards to welcome them into their
country and embrace them as "one of us." Why? I say enough. These
individuals and organization do this great nation a major disservice by even
having this dialogue. Deport all illegals. Deny them free medical
attention/healthcare, free education from K-12 and beyond. Deny them drivers
licenses, social security benefits. In other words, confiscate all these
illegals have obtained in this country and deport them. There is no national
pride or loyalty to this country. It is all about entitlements. Enough. This is
all about VOTES. Current votes (yes, we are victims of voter fraud from local to
state to national elections) and future votes. This whole ordeal is truly about
favoring one race over another or over many others. Wrong. American first all
others apply properly and stop invading our country.
I beleive that the only way to handle the problem is to send them back were they
came from and make them enter this country legally. There are a lot of people
waiting to enter this country the legal way and I beleive that they should have
the frist shot at enter this country. I also know that there are alot of them
married to U.S. citzens, and if it separtes family that is on them. I beleive
that there is enough burden on the taxpayers without the added burden of
foodstamps medical, and the school systems,that it's time to put a stop to all
the free stuff the illegals are getting. Send them back home and if their family
raise too much trouble send them with them to keep the family together.
Stacking the deck with pro-illegal groups gets us no where. I doubt it's going
to change one persons mind. These people are here to supply business with cheap
illegal labor, and the Democrats with voters in the future.
