10 million Americans looking for a Job

7 million employed Illegals in America.

1 trillion spent by Obama to supposedly create 3 million jobs. Illegals included!!!

500,000 Americans losing their job every month.

1.5 million immigrants admitted to the U.S. every year. More than every other country on earth combined. Do the math and see what our population will by by 2050. (1/2 billion)

Illegals Kill 20,000 Americans in one year...more than the Iraq war did in 6years.

Birthright citizenship, paid maternity, food stamps, Housing medical care for 18 years. No other developed country on earth gives Birthright citizenship to Illegal invaders.

Billions spent by both the Federal government and State government on Education, Healthcare, Welfare for illegals and their bastard citizen children.

Wages driven down in every industry that illegals are allowed to invade and gain critical mass.

Utah wants to spend 1.5 million to insure only legal residents get jobs.

Sounds like a good plan to me!!! Sounds very cost effective!

American Man

Vote this guy out of office at all costs. Start now and get rid of him and keep track of all whom aide illegals. Remove those who violate their oath of office and the constitution of the United States. Sen. Pat Jones, D-Holladay, needs to go, and soon!

Think about it

I am an american citizen who fights for immigrant issues. If you think about it, that is how our ancestors came to America, they had no Visa and no citizenship. Why did they come? because they could have a better life here. What did they do? they killed off indians, stole their land, and kicked them into indian reservations. Now an "illegal alien" takes the job as a custodian at your office and you complain about it? come on, get a life!
Where your butt is sitting right now used to be those "illegal criminal's" land. Nobody is taking the job you wanted as a custodian, trust me.
"PATRIOT 5:33" The only bastard around here is you. Swallow your pride and be a man. Do you think you make your statement stronger by calling their kids bastards? They are citizens already, moron. Just like your ancestors became citizens for being born here. Immigrants actually make the economy better, since they don't take anything from the government like you lazy butts. They work more for less, and still pay taxes.
Give them a break!

Legal Citizen

I would hope that everyone that is a LEGAL CITIZEN of the USA would Oppose Guestworker Legislation! Please contact your Congressmen and ask them to oppose SCR 1! Why is the legislature considering a guestworker program, which would bring in more foreign workers, during a period of high unemployment? There is no justification for this. They should be helping to ensure that jobs held by illegal aliens are reserved for unemployed citizens and legal residents.

Utah does not need to satisfy business appetite for cheap labor with a guestworker program that keeps Utahns unemployed or drives down their wages.

There is no reason to believe that guestworker procedure for ensuring that citizens or legal residents have job precedence over foreign workers will work any better than the sham procedures used under current federal guestworker programs. Do not make it harder for unemployed Americans to find jobs!

Please get involved and save JOBS for the LEGAL CITIZENS!!!

If you fall for this rhetoric, you'll fall for anything the politicans throw out to us! As Americans, we must stand up for our rights and fight.

Let's not be blind

A Better Solution

Most of these immigrants would not be "illegals" if the States just did not make it so difficult to be "legal". The United States has always been about taking in those who want a better life, so why is it such a problem that these individuals are coming? And all of this talk about I.D. theft and crime speaks of ignorance on the part of white U.S. citizens. While some of these immigrants do participate in crime, they make up a very small percentage. Most of the immigrants are good, hardworking people just trying to make life better for their children. Why not try to stop all of the crime that legal U.S. citizens are participating in instead? There is a whole lot more of that going on.

Realist

Of course the ideal situation would be for every person in this country to live and work here legally. Lamentably, those who possess power, authority and money in this country, and others, have allowed our current situation to occur because it benefits them. Of course those who are here illegaly and their families as well as the typical United States Citizen are hurt by this arrangement. The ways in which all of these parties are injured is innumerable and spans the the gamut of social,economic and every other ill that can fall upon a society.

We should proceed with all haste for an equitable system for all of the involved parties. The present plan outlined in HB81 is a grave mistake. The economic repercussions alone will show us what a depression truly is as a mass exodus of illegal immigrants, who represent a necessary cog in our erroneously founded economy, exit our state.

ID Theft

easy fix .. provide a viable way to get legit paperwork SOLVED

RE:A Better Solution

We have laws, they are not being enforced right now for some reason. We have quota's that limit immigration to 7% from one country per year. Illegals ignore this law and feel they should write our immigration laws for us, allowing 57% from one country per year.

As long as people ignore our laws, including Chamber of Commerce, employers, religious leaders and governors, we are going to have this problem. We need to take our immigration laws back, by enforcing them.

The US has 12-20 million illegals here now, they are taking the place/jobs of legal immigrants who can't come because we are over capacity.

Google Mexico's immigration laws. They protect their citizens jobs.

*** "The State of Utah actually sits in what used to be Mexico. So let me ask you, who is really the immigrant here?" ***

How many Mexicans were actually living here when the United States "stole" it? The 1850 census shows about 11,000 people, nearly all of them English-speaking Mormons from the US.

Same goes for all the other territory we allegedly stole. The total census population for the 4 states (California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona) formed from the former Mexican territories totalled less than 170,000 people, less than half of whom spoke Spanish or had any loyalties to Mexico.

*** Most of these immigrants would not be "illegals" if the States just did not make it so difficult to be "legal". ***

So are you suggesting that *anyone* who wants to come here should be able to come, with no limit on numbers? 2 million, 10 million, 100 million, no problem? Are you really prepared to live with the consequences of your so-called principles?

*** The economic repercussions alone will show us what a depression truly is as a mass exodus of illegal immigrants, who represent a necessary cog in our erroneously founded economy, exit our state. ***

People here illegally add almost nothing to our net economic output. The jobs they currently fill can be filled by Americans, especially teenagers and low-skilled workers, who will have less dependence on borrowing (for college students) and welfare.

America already has one of the highest percentages of unskilled workers of any developed country. We don't need more. We need less.

C.w.

State lawmakers sit around and wonder why they can't BALANCE their Budget, and here's all the illegals getting free govt. assistance. The FIRST thing that SHOULD have been done at the start of this session is GETTING RID of all the illegals. It would a)reduce class sizes, b)give Utahns some confidence in their elected officials, c)open up MORE jobs for UTAHNS who need them.
There is no such thing as a job that Utahns won't do.
There is such a thing as Utah employers taking advantage of illegals, and they should be fined very heavily for doing so.
BUT, our lawmakers need to "step up to the plate" and protect Utah jobs for Utah workers.
What is particularly frustrating about the Demos attitude on this, is that support of the illegals is a slap in the face to lower income families who NEED the jobs the illegals are taking, someone the Demos pretend to represent!

History lesson

You know the Mormon Battalion...here's the rest of the story.
We fought Mexico in 1846-48. They lost, in part because Santa Ana was a corrupt Mexican politician.
We signed the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and paid Mexico $15 million for the land.
Now, if Mexico wants to mount an army and take it back, that's how war is fought.
The Aztlan bunch are smokin' some primo weed if they believe the Southwest still belongs to Mexico.

Why does the LDS Church leaders remain silence on this topic? Are they really "Christians"? Because if they were, they would be against laws that damage the dignity of human beings. If they are really called Christians, they have the obligation to speak loudly in favor of these people. Read and reflect on Mt 25, 31-46

The key word is ILLEGAL! Sure we all started out as immigrants but eventually became US citizens became LEGAL! Most of the people do not want to become citizens of the US! Why should they when they get everything given to them free medical which we all pay for when we go to the doctor, food stamps etc! We need to do something now it is way over due, we wouldn't be in this state if something would have been done when they knew they started coming into the country years ago! Take a good look at California, gangs, foreclosure, can you tell me that they are not part of the problem. Come get a loan leave the house and go back to Mexico or move on to another state then rip them off too! Immigration reform needs to happen today not yesterday!
