• It is my belief that in order for this country to reduce the continued uncontroled flow of aliens into this country, it is necessary to pursue the employers with heavy jail time. I also believe it will be at great cost to send illegals that are already here back to the birth country, especially if are not willing to change the Consituition that has created thousands of anchor children.

  • I wish that the laws on the books would be enforced. But at the same time, federal judges have tried to thwart any efforts to keep the cost of infrastructure down by allowing illegal aliens into schools, food programs, hospital care at county hospitals and at even private hospitals during emergencies, WIC programs with support of the Catholic Dioceses in Galveston, "underground railway support" by a network of Catholic churches from the border to Houston and beyond.

    Schools and hospitals have to abide by a don't as policy. Never mind the night that one woman sat with active tuberculosis coughing and spewing the disease in the waiting room on all the unsuspecting people.

    When they put her next to me in emergency (I was there due to seizures) --both old bear and I came unglued and demanded her removal immediately. Putting my life at risk with my disorder was not an option. They had to move her to a negative air room.

    With the economy tanking today...we don't need illegals. And why every time we try to discuss this does the VicAd put advertisements up for them to try to find ways to weasle in. It is disrespectful to all other ethnicities that entered the US as required by the US Immigration offices.

    But then the VicAd supports anything for illegals. And has a tendency to delete any comment that speaks out against them.

  • Alton,

    You made several good points, but the INS already does all those checks you mention in order to become a resident alien and on to citizenship.

    My question to you, why bring in to this country more poverty from some where else? We have enough poverty in this country. Have you looked into the real life style of illegal aliens, and how they live, these are the same aliens you want to have green cards. Just because they have a green card will not change their live style or the way they live among the rest of us.

    The Immigration Reform & Control Act of 1986 didn’t work what makes you think trying it again will work?

    We have the laws on the books to enforce against employers for hiring illegal aliens. If the Clinton, Bush and this administration would have and could “just enforce the laws we have now”. Just a note, INS is still working amnesty cases from 1986, another program the government was not capable of running because of the magnitude and size of the enormous numbers of illegal aliens that were in this country during that time.
