I'm confused. The President said he is going to make the border more secure
and round up all the recent illegals and send them home. Why would this make Mr
Yapias and his group happy?? I thought they in favor of illegal
immigration...why would this make them happy?
They should be turning those around ans sending them back. Our own people who
live e below the poverty level can't get what these kids are getting
What happened to law enforcement in this country?
Records show the Administration knew the surge at the border was coming and did
nothing to stop it. On January 29, 2014, the federal government posted an
advertisement seeking bids for a vendor to contract to handle 65,000
‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’ crossing the southern border. This
raises serious questions.--Senate Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-AlaA leaked
May 30 internal memo written by top Border Patrol official, Deputy Chief Ronald
Vitiello, said: ‘Currently only three percent of apprehensions from
countries other than Mexico are being repatriated to their countries of
citizenship, which are predominantly located in Central America.’new CNN Poll found that 61% of Americans disapprove of the
administration's handling of illegal immigration. Only 35% said they
approved of the President's handling of illegal immigration.This country has an immigration problem, it's called Obama. According to
Gallop and Rasmussen polls, Americans want our laws enforced and less legal
Until such time as we enforce the law and deport those who are here illegally we
will continue to have groups claiming rights for trespassers.The latest
display at the border (children wrapped in tin foil blankets) take all the wind
out of the "You're separating families," rant. It is clear that the
separating of families is done by the illegal aliens themselves.The people
of the United States are being played for fools by our own politicians and the
illegals themselves.This nonsense has got to stop.
everyone should stay calm, treat these kids with respect, kindness and love and
reunite them with their families back in their home countries
I just completely don't get HOW illegals should have any power in our
country. I think this influx of sending innocent children in may backfire in
their faces- if POTUS stands by his word to deport most of them. Maybe we should
send millions of Americans down and take over Mexico if they want to be
Americans so badly. And, all of Central America, as well. I would love to claim
some lovely beach front property for Mexico to give me just because I demand it!
Nancy Pelosi went down there to welcome the illegals and tried to explain to the
locals that they are all Americans. Pelosi needs help with her Geography.
Being on the continents of the Americas, doesn't make you an automatic US
You bet, "stay calm". Lets just discuss this for the next 20 years.
That's what La Raza wants. While politicians sit around on their hands
discussing immigration reform week after week, month after month and year after
year. More and more people enter this country illegally where it becomes our
responsibility to take care of them. We need to be sending those people back to
their country of origin with a bill for services with interest. Then again, that
will not work because we've been funneling billions of dollars to those
countries for decades any way. La Raza wants to fundamentally change this
country to fit their idea of what it should be. At this rate and in 10 years we
will be calling this country "The United States of Latin America".
"Stay calm" we do not want anyone, meaning illegals scammed. Well--it
is OK to scam and steal from we the taxpaying American Citizens, but you are
concerned, as usual regarding the bad effects to the illegals. Typical tunnel
vision from La Raza.
The war on American CITIZENS continues unabated.
California used to lean Republican. Thirty years of massive illegal immigration
have resulted in California becoming a state with massive liberal majorities in
both the state assembly and state senate and 100% of state wide office are
Democrats. This has lead to insane laws allowing any child to use any bathroom
they want. If a guy says he "feels" like a girl, he can go to the girls
restroom.California is facing financial collapse as a result of the
profligate spending by these guys.“A democracy cannot exist as
a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers
it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority
always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the
democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be
followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.” (Alexis Tocqueville)America simply cannot continue down this path. If somebody dropped a
baby off at my door step, sure I would take care of it. Drop off 500 and that
is a different story.We are being invaded. It's time to enforce
If I were to enter a country illegally would the government provide me with all
the US provides? What is shocking to me is they break our laws and have the
arrogance to demand we change our laws . Are you kidding.? I have the upmost
respect for the people that have followed the law and have become citizens
legally. Welcome welcome. They understand the value of law. Arrogance and
being demanding is not helping the situation. It really upsets Americans.
Americans are for changing the law if our boarders are closed and people follow
the law. Without law there is chaos. Who wants people here that don't
follow our laws?
My family immigrated to the US 18 years ago. We filled out all the right forms
and paid all the fees, jumped through all the flaming hoops to come here
legally. We worked hard, paid taxes, bought a house and raised our kids in US
public education. 10 years later, we filed all the forms, paid all the fees,
jumped through all the flaming hoops to gain citizenship. It can be done,
people - the RIGHT way. I support legal immigration. Sad for the
refugee children. Give them some much needed humanitarian aide, and send them
back home to Mom and Dad. LaRaza should set up some kind of
perpetual immigration fund like the church has for education where participants
have to be screened as to their ability to contribute lawfully to this
country's growth. If the illegals get a hand up into this country, with
the financial assistance to come here legally then have to pay it forward (or
back), the lawless ones may not flock here in droves.
"Tony Yapias...reminded community members that the president's
authority to enact immigration reform without Congress is very
limited..."Mr. Obama doesn't think so.
We are blessed in this nation to have a president who will stand tall and speak
to us like adults. Congress won't act, so I will. Everybody in this country
knows that the first part of this statement is true and anyone who says
otherwise is lying to themselves out of pure and sad ideology. We are honored to
have a president who is brave enough to make the second part of the statement a
I seem to remember the First Presidency urging us to always act with compassion.
And I certainly cannot and would never dispute them.I am also
reminded that pushing someone down deliberately and then showing compassion is a
bit on the cynical side. We need to treat these children with compassion, but
we also need to make sure that we are not creating the problem in the first
The definition of insanity, continuing to do the same thing and expecting
different results.We must be insane, i.e., surrendering our money
and responsibility to the federal government, continuing to buy into their
promises, and then expecting them to control the border.
The problem here is speaking with La Raza at all. That organization is
responsible for some of the worst riconquista nonsense out there which directly
attacks the sovereignty of our nation and legitimacy of our borders. It is
obvious that illegals, whose first act on entering the country is to violate the
law of the land and often follow that up with fraud and theft by generating
fraudulent identity papers and taking goods and services they are not entitled
to including jobs. I do agree that calm should prevail, we should calmly pass
laws requiring them to return home, preventing them from illegally working and
for enforcement of our sovereign borders.
Re: "It's a humanitarian crisis . . . [t]hese children deserve what we
can offer them at this time . . . a much better reception than a . . . refugee
camp."Huh?So they deserve . . . what?Respect? Sure. Sympathy? Sure. Charity? Sure. Food, clothing, roof over their
heads? Sure.But, they also deserve to be reunited with their own
families, in their own homes, in their own nations and cultures, not to be
kidnapped, robbed of their language, history, and culture, then integrated into
white-bread, suburban America.If illegals are, indeed, those best
motivated to seek a better life for themselves and their families, America is
robbing their home countries of those best able to make things better there.To no higher purpose than Democrat electoral expedience.If
liberals really cared for the little guy, they'd support American Rule of
Law. They'd support returning illegals to countries that need them.
They'd send a clear message that Americans support freedom, democracy, and
prosperity in any nation whose people long for them.It's high
time real Americans adopt Obama's tactic -- push liberal politicians aside
and do what needs to be done.
Remove the "expectation" of entering a country without permission and
the problem goes away.It's time to use the "Stick" for
Illegal entry into our country. Stop them "At the Border". We
don't allow people to cut in line at a movie, at a concert, or in line at a
grocery store, why do we allow people to cut in front of law-abiding people
seeking immigration into the USA? The lawful should be first in line. The rest
need to go back home and get in line. It will be less expensive in the long run
and you'll have peace of mind and be true to your values of being a
"Law-Abiding Person with Honor and Integrity".
The tea party is obstructing everything too much all the time.
There we go again, Californians, telling us what we should be doing. How did
that open door policy work for them. They are broke. I am with Sheriff Joe, put
the Army on the border and defend this country like they are supposed to do.
We have been trying to get my daughter-in-law back into the country from Japan
(peaceful ally with NO drug or human trafficking problems). They went to Japan
to work when my son lost his job here and when he was able to come back for
another job 15 months ago they told her she had to go back to the back of the
line. It's now been 15 months. Supposedly her new Visa was approved in
January but still nothing. Her 4 children are here with my son who is forced to
be single dad and they are without their mother. She has a valid green card
with last renewal good until 2017 but SHE CAN'T GET BACK IN. They own a
house in Utah, she came legally in 1994 and they work for everything. My son
took seriously his commitment to make sure she would never drain the welfare
system so rather than living off unemployment and welfare when he lost his job,
he went where he could find work. Apparently you can't leave this country
with a "permanent resident" (green) card for more than 6 months. What is
wrong with this picture? Nobody cares about them.
Being objective is a form of freedom of speech. Why is my original letter not
