Re: “The Skinny

Meanwhile, Democratic Congressman Raúl Grijalva praised Obama for laying out "the humane approach we need right now. When demagogues are willing to say anything to win another election and spread falsehoods to whip up fear, it was good to hear the president remind us of the values and common sense that built this country and made it the successful, united nation it is today."
I really want to be 'humane' to the American Taxpayers and in that light I want to point out the Federal Government has some 11.5 million illegal aliens they can count on their computers. Amnesty for those 11.5 million will be..
Cost of amnesty for illegal aliens... 2.6 trillion.…

NO! And don't ask again.

BUT... it is important to understand that that number comes from those that they can count on the computers. The Border Patrol has made it clear that for every one they caught in the old days, ten slipped on through and those are NOT counted. In these days, it is one gets caught, it is the same in some places, but in others it one is caught and three get through. Use .only. 11.5 million and someone is doing a numbers game on us.

Obama tells us he has done, '.. more than any other President.' And that come out in the ..practical form of... he has done this much, but what needs to be done is four times as much. A little bit doesn't get it in this fight, and this fight is about dope on the streets, gangs, jobs, our culture, just walking on the streets, and very much, our future. There has been an improvement... not nearly enough and we need a new President that understands that.
And it is not a forever thing! Secure the border, cut the narcotics tie lines, nail the distribution processes in the U.S., and the cost of Border Enforcement goes way down. But it is even more important to realize the Mexicans who were here will be back in their country and mad!
At that point the People of Mexico will either fight to make their country better than it is, or it will be the same ole' same ole' and I don't think that will be ok at all. About that time, the Catholic Church is going to have some heavy duty explanations to do and at that point, at that point, the Democratic Party will have explaining also. And Mexico WILL need this country for the transition to something that .... works.
Sincerely Mexico..

Re: “¡Ask a Mexican!

Holy cow.. he actually believe that territory belongs to Mexico. Maybe did belong to Mexico.

It belongs to the American Indians who settled it.. not a bunch of idiots riding across the deset stopping occassionally and saying... I hereby claim this land for Spain and the Pope. Whoe.. I just said Spain. Somebody lift the rug while i sweep it under.

Re: “Serraglio

nuclear power is simply not safe
It is extremely safe even as human beings abuse it, and use very ugly handling procedures.

That plant was built in 1976 or so and while it is safer than it was, it has never had a real serious examination. If it had, the tsunami danger would have been upgraded a great deal. Other parts of the safety procedures would have been up graded also.

We need nuclear power or we don't have, and won't get, energy to keep us warm and run our factories, farm tractors and trucks, cars and pumps. If we don't have nuclear power.. we are running on empty. We are out of energy in a world of 6 billion people.

The solution is to gather the experts and find a way to use it, and safely. The solution is NOT to throw it in the waste bin.. but find the way to use it safely. And very frankly, that should not be to hard at all.

Re: “Danehy

Per the immigration policies and Mexico.. I should put it this way actually. The change in the immigration system in the United States is not going to happen. But if the Mexican Government changes the way it handles the requests, it might happen. Corruption in Mexico being what it is though, I suspect it will be a long time coming.

Re: “Danehy

With technology being what it is today, we should be able to cut the cumbersome legal-immigration procedure down from several years to just a few months. We could become a beacon for the world, both in terms of humanitarianism and responsibility.
If you come from a society that does not want to see provable information floating around, you discover they do not establish data bases that allow them to look up Jose's birth date, and place, and in fact, no one knows where he was born beyond the State in Mexico where he was born. Further, with the corruption, getting that information may require the biggest bribe if the Jose has a criminal record he wants to hide, and in the end, the information from Mexico to the people checking details in the Immigration Department may arrive, or maybe not.

Soooo... how exactly do we streamline a corrupt government that wants to be paid under the table for maintaining information on the Mexican People?

But wait a second.. George Jones from the U.S. says he need ten people to lay concrete and when the Immigration Department checks HUD and discover ten people looking for jobs at the local human resources department, the folks in the U.S. should be hired first. The question should not even come up.. and the demands of the Mexican Nationals to do it their way is not helping American Workers at all. Why in the world would we do it their way?

We actually have a system that works well, and has for a very long time. But if you want preference taken into account, and Ford Motor wants this worker in Detroit today, the system doesn't work. But we don't have open borders, and the American People don't want open borders: the Hispanic organizations want open borders. Further, if you remove the illegal aliens which a corrupt political system in Washington DC does NOT want very badly, the Hispanic Population falls to 9% of the population of the United States.
No thanks.

Re: “Utah May Not Be Immigration Utopia

Guest workers program is the soul purview of the Federal Government. They can try, but I would bet a bundle they don't get it. However.. this..

Illegal immigration's toll on (California) state's deficit…

Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, is the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and Rep. Elton Gallegly, R-Simi Valley, is chairman of the Immigration Policy and Enforcement Subcommittee.

California is faced with a monstrous deficit and the real possibility of insolvency. Once the land of new beginnings and the embodiment of the American dream, the Golden State is now expected to have a $25 billion budget shortfall by June 2012. And the state has the second highest unemployment rate in the United States.

According to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), illegal immigration costs California nearly $22 billion each year. This amounts to $2,724 per California household to pay for the health care, education, welfare and incarceration of illegal immigrants.

The House Judiciary Committee stands ready to put an end to the jobs magnet. One of our first steps has been to examine the Obama administration's record on worksite enforcement. Overall, worksite enforcement under the Obama administration is down more than 70 percent. That means it is easy for illegal immigrants to keep jobs that rightly belong to U.S. citizens.
Things are cooking very nicely. Clearly we need a new President to get this mess under control, and if we don't third degree at the town halls for immigration attitude, we will deserve what we get.
