  1. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF STOPPING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND SUPPORTING E-VERIFY CALL NOW! TODAY!

    DON’T LET DOWN YOUR GUARD?

    Sen. Ed Reilly states we must enforce our immigration laws? But does he believe in rigid enforcement of E-Very in the workplace?

    If you–GOOGLE–illegal immigration you can research the true costs, the real numbers of those squatting here and the massive consequences? The most damaging is–irreversible OVERPOPULATION. There is a battle commencing in the House and Senate this week, to weaken E-Verify and the startling amendment to fund the original two layer border fence. Sen. Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano will try to table these new amendments or even kill them. Recall Reid nearly obliterated E-Verify, the extraction process that removes illegal immigrants from job placement. THESE NEW AMENDMENTS ARE IN INSTANT JEOPARDY, SO DEMAND RIGID ENFORCEMENT, NO AMNESTY AND NO MORE EXCUSES?

    Go to the websites NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIALWATCH, CAPSWEB, HERITAGE FOUNDATION & AMERICANPATROL FOR FACTS NOT FOUND IN NEWSPAPERS OR EVEN THE GOVERNMENT. THERE IS GATHERING STORM OF FURIOUS VOTERS FROM ACROSS AMERICA, WHO CANNOT NOT, MUST NOT–STOP– THE BARRAGE ON THEIR SENATE AND CONGRESS. 202-224-3121 THE US TAXPAYER MUST REMAIN VIGILANT, LETTING THESE POLITICIANS KNOW WHOSE IN CHARGE & THAT THEIR JOBS ARE ON THE LINE, LIKE THE MILLIONS OF AMERICAN WORKERS.

  2. Unless you’re willing to come mow my yard for $20/week, shut the fuck up.

  3. I bucked onions and moved sprinkler pipes and picked cherries in Idaho as a 13 year old. I say, let em stay. Everyone that wants to. Hardest workin folks I’ve ever seen.

  4. LIKE THE MILLIONS OF AMERICAN WORKERS.

    Yeah, all those American workers who are getting elbowed out of the lucrative itinerant fruit-picking-and-yardwork racket by immigrants. Shut the fuck up, LoneWacko.
