6 states expected to gain congressional slots due to surge in Hispanic numbers
Adjudicating the 20 to 30 million illegal immigrants in the Decennial Census is
a travesty of our laws. It makes them de-facto legitimate, which is a blemish on
US citizenship and those who jumped federal obstacles to come here legally. Not
only will it serve small states of fed dollars, instead give 5-6 billion dollars
to states with illegal--SANCTUARY--policies. It will also give states with
massive illegal populations, more representation in Washington?Those
who believe in America’s survival, without OVERPOPULATION as stated by the
US Census bureau better read facts, not the lies at NUMBERSUSA. Those who want
details of corruption in WASHINGTON and state government go to JUDICIAL WATCH.
Overpopulation, traffic hell should go to CAPSWEB. Other sites of interest on
Immigration enforcement is ALIPAC and AMERICAN PATROL. We the people have the
ultimate power to throw out anti-sovereignty incumbent politicians. Call and
command these do-nothings to--STOP--this facade at 202-224-3121.
Any elected official who allows illegal aliens to be included in the census
should be charged with aiding and abetting and dereliction of duty. Louis Gutierrez and Robert Menendez, along with others in the Congressional
Hispanic Caucus, have proven that they could care less about their sworn oath or
our laws and care only about, to quote Gutierrez, "my people."
This DesNews article proudly states, \"the study shows Latinos produced 51
percent of the population growth in the nation since 2000.\" So, how is urban
sprawl, over utilization of resources and over population working for us? I
don\'t think this is something to brag about. \r\n\r\nWithout this 51% increase
perhaps we could have stabilized growth and and avoided the taxpayer expense of
providing schools, police, fire and other costs. \r\nOn the other hand the
United States model of capitalism requires a rapid expansion of the population.
\r\n\r\nThe U.S. population has grown by 50 percent since 1968, 41 years ago. If
it grows at 50% again in 41 years the population will be over 450 million by
2050, easily on its way to a billion by the end of the century. What do I care?
Few of us will be around by then. \r\n\r\nThe point is, the expanding population
economic model will self-destruct, if we don\'t give up the idea of continual
population growth. This will be hard but change will either be accomplished by
us or it will be done to us and we lose our way of life in the U.S.
@Tab and To Tab:I too have worked closely with Hispanics and I can
identify with both your experiences. Still I notice a trend....Those who come into this country legally seem more likely to reflect what Tab
sees. They are inherently more honest and reflect our values. They appreciate
the opportunity to be US citizen.Those that come in illegally tend
to be dishonest, cheat on their spouses (if they have one), find no problem
breaking various laws. I know "generalization but I have seen this over and
over.I attribute this not to nationality or race but to their
attitudes before coming here and their motivation to come here.Just
two examples:The most honest, hard working, and intelligent Admin
Assistant I ever has work for me was a legal immigrant from Mexico. I would
trust her with anything.I have worked with or around others that
were illegal immigrants and because of their actions I would not trust them with
even the most basic tasks.A large number of my most trusted and
loved friends are immigrants. They are are from many countries but they are all
legal and we share many of the same values.
I'd willingly give up the 4th House seat if we could deport all the illegals
back to where-ever they originated. We could save a fortune in social services,
education, healthcare and law enforcement if we deported all illegals. We
could "take back" our state.
I have worked closely with Latinos over several decades. Of the thousand or so
I've known, very few desire to assimilate into American culture, and that is
especially true with illegals. Many of them have been here for two decades or
more and can barely speak just a few words of broken english. Additionally, they
have little loyalty to America and it's ideals, and cling to the culture and
mind set of their homelands bringing with them the corruption and dishonesty
that is inherent there. This is in drastic difference to the Irish, Germans, and
peoples from other lands who cherish the land of the free and home of the brave.
Those States will no longer be republican if illegal aliens continue to invade
Interestly enough my experience has been the exact opposite. I am a community
professional and in my professional capacity I find that illegals as well as a
majority oflegal Hispanics I encounter in my work, have a distinct lack of
committment to integrating into American society, are out for all the free
benefits they can get, often lying to obtain them. They are committed to family
but only their own, here and in their country of origin, not the greater Utah
community family. They participate in community activities if they will get
something free. They are breaking the law at an alarming rate and there is a
culture of violence and disdain for America among the younger generation. Tab, just are you are generalizing, I am too but this has been my
experience. I also find that those of Mexican descent are much more likely to
be illegal than those from other South American countries.Personally
I welcome all legal immigrants who have shown a committment to law and to the
USA but would like to see all illegals deported and told to get in line to come
that Mr. Vargas would bring up the constitution "For anybody to
suggest that Latino immigrants revert to declaring themselves as 0 percent of a
person under our Constitution, to me, is irresponsible and immoral." The bill targets illegal aliens, not latinos. They break the law but not
entering legally. If they constitution, and by extension laws in general, were a
priority they wouldn't be here.
Of the Hispanics I've met with, I have discovered in most instances that they
have brought along their culture which includes:respect for parents
and authority among most youth.a closer extended family network with
families members supporting each other.a commitment and follow through on
paying their debts, fines, and fees.a good attendance at meetings where
they are expected to show up.a strong belief and participation in
community activities and church.If these are qualities that American
should be without then perhaps, some Americans might be better moving out of the
Country to get away from these abhorrent cultural traditions. Some people would
say that these values are just what America does need now during these times of
unrest and turmoil.
Who cares if the mexicans can vote. They have brang the SWINE FLU to Utah.
DRUGS and All the Crime. We need to vote for the man in the government who is
going to get ridd of these people.
