It is interesting immigration will be a topic at the Future of Florida event put on by the Chamber of Commerce.

It is no secret the Chamber of Commerce openly fights any immigration laws and sues states that passes it.......

What would be a moment to see how many honest people are at teh convention would be to ask for a show of hands by those employing illegal aliens.

If no would admit to it then why does the COC constantly fight against passage?

I think it would be a hoot......

Never will we get the straight truth from Democrats who believe our borders should remain open? Neither have we got the specifics from the Liberal oriented media. So many articles are missed by the general public, because the Leftist press chooses to blackout different factual articles, as it would add ammunition to securing the border. For instance according to an "American Patrol" in today’s report, that on June 18, 2010, Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl told the audience at a North Phoenix Tea Party town hall meeting that during a private, one-on-one meeting with President Obama in the Oval Office, the President told him, regarding securing the southern border with Mexico, "The problem is... if we secure the border, then you all won't have any reason to support 'comprehensive immigration reform.'" There is a video of Senator Kyl saying exactly these words at the TEA Party convention at "Vision for American" website.

I have found that many websites frown on web addresses, but you can locate these very serious information articles at American Patrol, NumbersUSA and the conservative legal website Judicial Watch, by typing these web sites into Google. The websites don’t pull punches and are very explicit in intelligence on illegal immigration and other political news not revealed in the Liberal predisposed news reports. These articles in the majority of cases are backed by hard facts, such as the Los Angeles Times ignoring the report about the tunnel under our Southern Border. Its, Liberal bias runs parallel to the Arizona Republic. This media are not separate on the belief, that the way between Mexico and our sovereign nation should be wide open. They are citing that because of these tunnels under our border, is sufficient evidence that the fence doesn't work. The fact is it does work? Otherwise they wouldn’t build tunnels?

If the border fence was constructed according to Rep. Duncan Hunter’s design of two parallel fences with roads and watchtowers, in between, adorning the two thousand miles with concertina razor wire. This would stop the invasion by economic aliens from across the border. Trouble is the fence remains open in so many areas covering hundreds of miles. Deployment of 5000 National Guard along the fencing would halt for good these everyday incursions into our country. Not only would it would dissuade thousands turning up every month, including females pregnant; intentionally entering America to have free reign to our welfare programs for citizens. Taxpayers could begin to save billions of dollars in the educational, health care and prisons, all overcrowded with illegal aliens. Mexico is saying that the influx of their native-born has dwindled, but when the actual Mexico cities politicians handed out guide book to slip past the US Border Patrol, who are you inclined to believe? In any case we are already supporting 20 million plus alien foreigners from across the world. A government National ID card could put an end to the illegal immigration occupation.


In the political pit that is the Senate and Congress, you cannot expect to close the loopholes in immigration, as the Democrats driven by the Liberals want future votes. Then the Republican establishment likes the unceasing flow of migrants for cheap slave labor, so they don't have to pay a full measure of pay and benefits to Citizens and legal residents. It is the same with the farms and mega agricultural acreage. Cheap labor in the fields, service industries, manufacturing, and construction want no changes to the laws. They certainly don't want the 1986 Immigration laws enforced, because none of them could exploit the millions already here or those who are encouraged to come here across borders or through an aircraft terminal. Our immigration policies are a mess, because they are not enforced. That why America has a yearly deficit of 113 billion dollars and no politician has placed a bill on the table to halt the $46 Billion dollars a year going to other foreign lands in illegal worker allotments. That $113 billion dollars is not going to remain the same forever, but it rising every year to new heights.


Behind all these illegal immigration issues and the open border agenda is money. It’s just plain greed spawned by both parties. The majorities of lawmakers are not interested in the American people’s rights, interests or will. But it's in the people’s interest to restrain these legislators who would approve another ugly mass amnesty. We cannot afford another Immigration Reform package from either party, as we have already been bled to a husk by those already illegally settled here. Just think the political high echelon already served us on a plate, to raise the $14.6 Trillion debt ceiling to a new high, by another $2.Trillion dollars. In California, a Sanctuary State they are ready to close down 70 State parks, but the Liberal Governor Jerry Brown thinks nothing of pushing forward with a State Dream Act. Another cost for this ailing State one way or another, when they are trying to cut down on their impossible deficit of $26 Billion dollar.


It only makes sense to give the TEA PARTY leadership a chance to resolve what’s wrong with America. The TEA PARTY could not do any worse than the majority of corrupt fools running in office now? My point of view is people like Billionaire Donald Trump, Michele Bachman or Herman Cain, have straight forward idea to resurrect America from the organized-chaos that is Washington. Rick Perry has a poor thought process on illegal immigration, as he thinks we should graduate to another amnesty. The 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act didn't work, so another move towards a Congressional bill would be a travesty; played on the American people. The TEA PARTY will return empowerment to the people and each individual State, such as education. It will end strong armed agencies as the (EPA) Environmental Protection Agency that is killing jobs, with too many regulations.

We need a moratorium on all regulations, to give thousands of companies’ breathing space such as the Coal industry. Coal supplies much of our energy to our communities, but many are closing down because of the immense pressure from regulatory controls. The Department of IN-Justice seems to have the federal courts in their pockets, so immigration laws are carefully engineered to undermine the policing laws enacted in Arizona, Georgia and Alabama. There are millions of
Americans without jobs that are angry and frustrated with the political ideology, that the government has inept in closing the borders or enforcing immigration laws, but are covering up this fact by going after states who are floundering in unfunded mandates for entitlement payments to illegal aliens and their children. Suddenly Napolitano, Secretary for Homeland Security is pushing for E-Verify? What a quick change of clothes. This is BS! Obama changes his mind from deporting illegal aliens, now it’s going to be discretionary? At least we know that “Secure Communities” is going to be mandatory or is it..?

Just make it a—FELONY—for entering America, unlawfully. Put them all in Arizona’s Joseph M. Arpaio tent city prison as that will change anybody coming here

I happened to find this commentary that really sums up the problem with illegal immigration in a website commentary.

We are persistently told that ILLEGAL ALIENS "are just here to work", but at the same time told that "they only take jobs Americans wouldn't do anyway." Hogwash! The ironic thing is just WHOSE jobs they've actually taken. ILLEGALS now occupy most of the unskilled entry-level jobs that inner-city youths used to start out with. All the Construction, Light Manufacturing, and Agriculture jobs that poorly-educated Blacks (and Whites) used to gravitate to have been taken over by Illegal’s. They have literally crowded out independent Union contractors and craftsmen in the building trades - I personally know two roofers and a drywall’s who each closed their businesses after being continually underbid by unlicensed, non-union Illegal’s. They could not pay all their taxes, insurances, licensing fees, and union dues, and still compete with an Illegal who has no more business overhead than the tools in his toolbox. Illegal’s all work "under the table", so they don't pay ANY of those overhead costs, so they can always afford to underbid a dues-paying, licensed craftsman. I say its "ironic" whose jobs they steal, because two of Mr. Obama's strongest supporters are Blacks and Union members, and they are PRECISELY the two groups his Administration's immigration policies are screwing over the most, all in hopes of bringing in more lifetime Democrats.

So everybody who cares about America’s economy and future should join their local or the central Tea party. Locate your federal, State and community representative and ask them directly their stance on this very expensive issue, which influences all our taxation.

VERY good points & i agree w/most, including DON'T vote for Perry (i'm from Texas, live in Houston) & Perry has been far too wishy-washy on illegal immigration), 1st he voted to give in-state tuition to ILLEGALS (lovely!), then he did an about face regarding "santuary cities", which he wanted ended BUT the bill never passed, sooooo texas is being OVERRUN just like Calif. & no one cares, or will do anything to stop the ILLEGALL IMMIGRATION issue...!!!
