Miami-Dade Commission says: no more immigration bills; Haridopolos ready to tee one up

In a move likely to be roundly ignored by Florida's legislative leadership, the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday adopted a resolution urging the Florida legislature to reject any immigration related legislation next session. The resolution, sponsored by Vice Chairwoman Audrey Edmonson, was similar to a resolution approved by the board last year opposing Arizona's immigration law.

Just hours after resolution vote, Senate President Mike Haridopolos told reporters that the Senate would not only bring up the immigration bill it passed out of its chamber last session 23-16, but it will pass it again. The bill was rejected by the House, however, which wanted a stricter plan.

Gov. Rick Scott and Tea Party activists around the state have said they want to make passage of an immigration bill a top priority of the legislative session. But the vote may be difficult for many legislators running for re-election in 2012. Because of redistricting, they will be forced to run in newly-drawn legislative districts and appeal to constituents they are not accustomed to serving.

Under the Senate bill, police must make “a reasonable effort” to determine the immigration status of people they arrest and jail, a provision that opponents say is aimed at both legal and illegal immigrants. The bill also would require illegal immigrants who are convicted of nonviolent crimes to be referred to federal officials for deportation. The bill did not include a controversial provision that would have required employers to check the immigration status of workers.

Haridopolos said the immigration bill, as with other bills that passed the Senate but not the House last session, will be given a fast-track approval "to get it to the floor and over to the House.''

"The House has talked very tough on immigration,'' he said. "We have a bill that is very tough on illegal immigration. It’s in the House’s court. If they want to do somethingm we’re poised and ready."

IF YOU REALLY WANT THE TRUTH?

Governor of Texas Rick Perry canceled his chance of being President, as he had an insignificant standing on holding back the hordes of illegal aliens. In prior speeches he was more for amnesty than against it and handing out taxpayers money for tuition of illegal immigrant children is not honing the TEA PARTY to support him. The majority of Americans have trusted Politicians like Perry for far too long, good orators in front of crowds, but in actual fact his words are meaningless when it comes to legislating what "The People" really want--such as a real double layer fence across our Southern border--of which he disapproves and is a urgent National Security issue.


In Furtherance to the growing to the concerns over the border fence that President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano declares “that it’s Secure?” Go to the American Patrol” website, and digest the surveys along the 2000 miles of border. It just doesn’t exist. Type into Google American Patrol and add Fence as keywords and then find out the truth and not exaggerations or lies. Thousands of miles still remain wide open, consisting of decaying rusted fencing. Hundreds of miles are just supplemented with vehicle barriers, which anybody could pass through.


Check and decide for yourself if the borders are controlled on American Patrols full explanatory maps. There are hundreds of miles that federal agents that are even prohibited from the border areas , because of environmental laws that have gone haywire with regulatory policies. Yet the environmentalist remain lock-jawed on the mounds of filth and human effluent left by the thousands of illegal migrants and immigrants who slip through every month, who end up pilfering the taxpayers pockets . I think human life of a rancher comes first before a species of frog or a tiny plant instead of another “political Correct” endangered Species Act..


Far superior in worth for Presidency is Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain, as neither are part of the GOP establishment. Bachmann, Cain should address strongly the expensive and social consequences of illegal immigration, which is consuming this nation in balkanization and wrecking American democracy. Both are heavily supported by the TEA PARTY and have exceptional immigration grades, to enforce the laws already on the books. Both are Constitutional Conservatives and believe fully in shrinking government, scrapping the present tax code and returning agencies of government to each individual State. Only the REAL TEA PARTY doesn’t crave the illegal alien votes, or massive influx of cheap labor for overwhelming power or profitable interests.

Don’t believe in the Liberal Progressives, open border and radical organizations that THE TEA PARTY is an opponent of E-Verify as this is a downright lie. The TEA PARTY NATION that is just one of thousands of independent entities, as the TEA PARTY is just commonplace Americans, who have been kicked around too long. The majority of TEA PARTY members are unbending there will be no more Amnesties. No clandestine small Amnesties that have been happening for years, millions entering annually. True TEA PARTY leaders will rescind any Sanctuary City or State policies, with refusal a loss of federal funds.

If you are appalled by the mockery of our immigration laws, reach for that phone and call you’re Representative at 202-224-3121. Don't wait--this is a very powerful E-Verify bill that could help millions of Americans find work, especially in the lower incomes. When 20 million Americans are jobless, being only finding temporary or part time work, this should be not the time for hiring foreign nations. My commentary cannot possibly cover the whole travesties perpetrated on Americans, but all evidence of years of failure, unconcern and corruption is available at NumbersUSA, American Patrol and Judicial Watch. There are just three of the hundreds of serious pro-sovereignty organization, fighting the open border zealots.

In Conclusion, Farmers and Mega-agricultural corporations complaining about E-verify and lose of cheap labor are keeping concealed that when an illegal alien worker is sick, he leaves that unfortunate uninsured soul at the emergency room. His whole families also are treated from a minor cough to a serious illness—which the taxpayers pay for eventually. Same with all the children, that are placed in Public schools—which come out of your taxes, not the farmer’s profits. It’s a fact that State and federal governments appropriate from taxpayers an estimated $113 billion dollars a year in catering to illegal aliens. (Heritage foundation study)

The Miami Dade Commission must think they are back in the third world banana Republics that are real countries in name only......

Haridopolos and Cannon don't want immigration laws passed either......that is why the legislation is being put in committee bills so they can ignore the core issue of jobs and concentrate on crime bills sure to draw the million or so illegal aliens out of the shadows......How dare we citizens want to share this country only with people who are legal ot be here.

But don't look to the "immigration courts" to solve the problem..the dirty secret is they are courts in name only.........They are not even part of the judicial Branch of government.....they are employees of the justice department and have no real authority....it is a sick joke being perpetrated on American Citizens.....

Unless there are real immigration courts setup in the Judicial Branch of government there will be chaos and anarchy.....

Contact your rep in congress and see if they even know illegal aliens are not handled by real judges......

Hey no problem. Cut all state funding for all projects. Transportation money? Forget about it. Need money for schools? Tough luck. How about all that money you need for those special projects? Nope.

Did Florida forget this?

Do what is right for Florida and this country. Get a law to get rid of all the illegal aliens. It will be the very best thing you can do. The illegal aliens who don't have our jobs are using this country as a welfare country. Wake up, Florida. Get a law like Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Arizona and other states.

Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.
