“Now, the Senate is going to have a chance to do the right thing over the next few weeks when Senator Reid brings the DREAM Act to the floor. (Applause.) Keep in mind, in the past, this was a bill that was supported by a majority of Democrats and Republicans. There’s no reason why it shouldn’t receive that same kind of bipartisan support today. I’ve been a supporter since I was in the Senate, and I will do whatever it takes to support the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’ efforts to pass this bill so that I can sign it into law on behalf of students seeking a college education and those who wish to serve in our country’s uniform. It’s the right thing to do. We should get it done.”
THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
Please tell me I’m not the only one who sees America going backwards. Because of all these illegals we are being forced to lower our standard of living. The American dream is quickly becoming a nightmare.
Because of the illegals we are being forced to accept factory jobs, with sweat-shop hours and working conditions, at the minimum wage…, whereas just a few years ago the minimum wage jobs were for kids in school getting started at McDonald’s and such.
Because of these illegals, who live 4 families to a single-family home, we are being forced to give up OUR American dream of owning our own home, and living 4 families to a single-family home, just to survive.
As I see it, we are becoming another THIRD WORLD COUNTRY !!
Unemployment is leading to poverty. Living 4 families in a house is leading to widespread disease. (Can you spell T.B.??)
And then I read that Colin Powell says “We NEED these illegals”.
What we need are jobs that pay a living wage, not illegals who will work for nothing. Our government needs to quit selling us out. Tax the hell out of corporations that manufacture overseas, and then ship their products back. Find and deport illegals, and find and FINE these companies who hire these illegals. They aren’t paying taxes, but those who are, have to pay more for them ??
Let’s put Americans back to work here at home. America cannot move forward, if we allow the illegals to pull us backwards.
‘BRING THESE PEOPLE OUT OF THE DARKNESS’: Powell to GOP: Back immigration
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that — because they fix his house.

Powell, a moderate Republican, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is “what’s keeping this country’s lifeblood moving forward.”
In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants because they “are doing things we need done in this country.”
He added: “They’re all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I’m sure you’ve seen them at your house. We’ve got to find a way to bring these people out of the darkness and give them some kind of status.”
Powell did not say whether he has hired illegal immigrants directly or they showed up with contractors.
So let me get this straight. America is good enough for you to come into illegally, pollute with your trash, and infect with your diseases (TB), but you WON”T fly the American Flag while celebrating your heritage??
I’m not arguing your right to celebrate, but you should show your respect for the country you now call home.
This is America, and a lot of people have died to give us the freedoms we have.
I guess I should have expected this. Perhaps no one has ever taught you what respect actually is, or means. They have either made-up their own definition, or learned what little they know from the streets. (i.e.-gangs and thugs) Perhaps they, like their folks, are just too damn lazy to look up what it really means.
But then you all want to cry “discrimination” when we Americans want to deport your disrespecting asses. Our great-great grandparents had to immigrate legally, and respectfully, we expect the same from ALL who come here looking for a better life.
By the way, it’s NOT discrimination, when it pertains to All. Just because there happens to be more of one than another, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s discrimination. Just like any survey, you can’t just look at the numbers.
Respect is a two-way street. If you don’t give it- YOU DON”T GET IT !!!
Wonder if MSNBC or CNN will feature this shocking story? Stop it, yer crackin’ me up with such nonsense…
Would MSNBC or CNN have featured this shocking story if the vile protesters at the Nazi-themed protest were CONSERVATIVES or REPUBLICANS or if left-wing extremists had dressed up like Nazis and crashed a tea party posing as conservatives or Republicans? Why do you even ask? Of course they would.
When interviewed in the video below, these anti-conservative protesters in Joliet, outside Chicago — proudly carrying Nazi-esque signs slamming GOP congressional opponent Adam Kinzinger and other well-known conservatives, like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin — denied several times being there in support of, or affiliated with, Democrat Rep. Debbie Halvorson. Congresswoman Halvorson is running against Kinzinger in the November election.
But wait… these miscreants LIED.
Much later, these bogus grassroots protesters were videotaped returning to the congresswoman’s campaign office in the dark of night. Obviously, they’re part of the liberal congresswoman’s camp. Unless Halvorson had NO IDEA that these left-wing extremist folks had her campaign office keys and gained access to her office. They look pretty darned cozy in there in the video with Julie Merz, Halvorson’s campaign manager.
BUSTED, YOU LYING STATISTS!
Crikey sakes, why hasn’t Halvorson publicly denounced this disgusting representation of her run for office? Unless, of course, she sees nothing wrong with it. Or she didn’t think her merry band of protesters would get caught, or she quietly encouraged or approved the whole Nazi theme… which may or may not have happened, don’t know.
But Halvorson should now get to the bottom of this depravity — pronto — and either fire or harshly reprimand the Nazi-sign-carrying chuckleheads who are involved in her re-election campaign.
Because many Democrat voters who may have voted for her also attend tea parties in the Chicago area. And many are disgusted with the capricious way the term “Nazi” is applied by liberal extremists. Jews as well as Gentiles.
From the YouTube video summary:
Debbie Halvorson’s office organizes a protest on September 15, outside an Americans for Prosperity Event, featuring images of her opponent Adam Kinzinger and other prominent conservative figures as Nazis.
Rep. Halvorson’s Nazi Protest – September 15, 2010
Candidate Adam Kinzinger is very unhappy with Team Halvorson’s deplorable tactics — no one can blame him — and he is demanding an apology, which is not only reasonable, but something that Rep. Halvorson, if she had any class at all, would have done yesterday.
Remember what we as voters need from our politicians, Isn’t it funny what some will do to get re-elected. It wasn’t that long ago we had 219 Democrats standing arm and arm with each other, chanting “Yes we can!” and now all of a sudden those same Democrats don’t want to talk about their Yes vote on Obama care or anything else for that matter. Incumbents are getting a taste of what we tea party voters are all about.
The Tea party has spoken.
Let’s purge the Incumbent disease, stick the infected with a No vote on incumbents in Will County Illinois.
