Amnesty For Mexicans

What is Obama thinking about the legal amnesty for Mexicans. Doesn't he realize the impact this has on America? I have emailed my senators, congress reps and have voiced my "NO" vote loud and clear. What do you think?

I go to a church with a heavily immigrant membership, including the priest and his wife.

HOWEVER, they all came here legally.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/21/12

Kathr, now that you bashed all Mexicans and hispanics I hope you feel better this time while seating on your chair in front of the computer. And tell God,

"God, I thank You that I am not like other men-extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice a week, I give thithes of all I possess.
And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast saying, "God be meerciful to me a sinner"
---Mark_V. on 6/21/12

Jed, you argued for a long time against the commands of God. Here it is:

"Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God"

Now, how much clearer can that be? They are appointed by God. He wants us to be subject to the authorities, He God appointed them, yet you don't like that law. There is only one exception to this command: when obedience to civil authority would require disobedience to God's Word (Ex. 1:17: Dan 3:16-18: 6:7,10).

you are self righteous. and the mexicans are working in the farms that americans don't want to work.

they are not bad just poor looking for opportunities just like the immigrants in the early 1900s
---mike on 6/21/12

Mike just for information sake. Some of the Cherokee Indians,the tribe here originated in the South,were DNA tested to see if they too came from Asia via the Land Bridge and they are not from the same group. It was found they had European Roots. That probably explains why they had a Newspaper before the other White men settled America. Things we think are not always the way they seem to be. Blessings

More lies and slander from MarkV. Sorry mark WRONG AGAIN.

And I didn't attack Shira, she attached me, made a false statement about me she cannot back up, and refused to apologize because you came on spewing your hate just like you are now.

Well, I forgive Shira. and have never said anything mean or nasty to her, or anything of the sort.

I've always liked Shira, and was really disappointed she is influenced by your hatred.

I don't know about other states school systems, but here in the Atlanta area, the schools are in serious trouble, especially Dekalb County. 84 million in the hole just this year. Yes over the years we have been letting our reserves dry up supporting illegals. Now the housing market has flatlined, bringing taxes so low, schools, police, fire departments etc are suffering. Alot of drug dealing goes on here too by our illegals, taxing out our police departments, etc...just more mess.

Of coarse not all these illegals are as innocent as one may think. With it comes crime and drugs.

I think if any amnesty is given, 5 years of community service should be given with it.

The largest street gangs in the U S, Los Angeles-based 18th Street gang, some 30,000 to 50,000 with 80% of them being illegal aliens from Mexico and Central America. Active in 44 cities in 20 states, its main source of income is street-level distribution of cocaine,marijuana, heroin and methamphetamine. Gang members also commit assault, auto theft, carjacking, drive-by shootings, extortion, homicide, identification fraud, and robbery

Another prominent street gang, Mara Salvatrucha, AKA MS 13, with a membership of some 8,000 to 10,000 members in the US, predominantly composed of 90% illegal immigrants smuggle illicit drugs, primarily powder cocaine and marijuana, into the US and transport and distribute the drugs throughout the country.

Most of the people living in that census tract were born in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico and are not U.S. citizens, census records show.

Shira, I couldn't agree with you more... But it's MarkV you need to be telling that to.

MarkV believes rules were meant to be broken and should be broken for the greater good of Mexicans. Sort of that socialistic/communistic mindset.

I remember in JH someone stole 2 dollars out of my purse. The guy who stole it was very poor. Do you know what the teacher said....Oh just let it go, he needs it worse than you.

I WORKED hard for that 2 dollars. So from that day on, I really have little sympathy for those who steal!
---kathr4453 on 6/20/12

sister Shira, you are correct as I told Darline she was correct. The schools here are paying for the children of the illigals with our money, I hear that daily from my wife, she works for the school system. I'm sure that illigals cost the state a lot of money, which really is our money. The illigals from the south are coming over by the thousands, which is not fair for others who only come by a few. A lot of things are not fair, and I know it. But we can never forget that we are children of God first and formost. I don't like that other countries don't help these people, but we are not in control of those countries. We can whin, then vote, and then hope, but many things we cannot change, they are in God's control.

Really small god you have there markv. Your god really isn't all that then is he?

God forordained from before the foundation of the world that Mexicans would be poor in 1900-2000 + .RIGHT??? Any you think YOU can change God's will? Your self effort stronger than God?

You really are double minded.

You just feel guilty because your grandfather came here illegally, and you know you have what you have because of what he did....but your grandfather just as easily could have been born here if it so pleased God to begin with.

There are alot more needy than in If that's how you feel about the poor, let all those from Haiti and the DR come in before the Mexicans. Still ok with you???

Jed, it is your right if you so desire to condemn all illigals. I cannot change your heart. I will not even try. No use continuing answering you, I already know what it takes to do that from other blogs. I do have a bleeding heart, and If I had seen you hungry I would have given you something to eat, so that you would not have to eat from dumpters. I gave my opinion concerning the poor that come here. I know what Jesus would do, He would help all those who needed help. And that is what I would do if I had the resources to do it. I know its a burden to the country, but we should not deny anyone help. So I can only give my opinion and you can give yours. No need to talk anymore for me on the subject. You guys can do as your heart desires.

( his interpretation of the elect) yet believes it's our responsibility to look the other way when HIS PEOPLE want to steal the riches in our country. What a crock!

I believe God is more interested in a man's soul than his belly...Just remember Esau....and what esau did....just to fill his belly.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil!

Jed here is an example of what you are saying. We and nearly all our friends are in some phase of the building industry. One of the men hired a Mexican who gave him a number to send to the IRS. That went on for about 2 or 3 years until the Mexican told him he could no longer use that number to show the IRS how much he paid him because he had borrowed the number from someone else and evidently was found out. What he did could have caused the builder to get arrested when he was innocent of any wrong doing. Thank God the builder didn't get in trouble. Jed I am sorry you suffered like that. People would be surprised if they knew how many children do suffer that way.

MarkV, I know alot more suffering than you realize. I grew up dirt poor. Was homeless several times in my childhood and ate food from dumpsters all growing up. There is probably very few on this site that understand poverty like I do. But being poor is no excuse for committing crimes that harm other people and their families and taking what is rightly someone else's in order to get ahead. These are not victimless crimes they are committing by being in this country illegally. I thought you were for everyone paying their "fair share"? What happened to that? You have no problem with them evading taxes and committing fraud and identity theft in order to benefit from our system without being a part of it? That hurts our citizens.
---Jed on 6/20/12

Jed, don't you get it. It is still a sin, breaking the laws of God. That never changes. And those who are looking to make a better life for their families will sin. There is no other way for them to support their families, yet it doesn't change the law of God. God is just, and before we do anything wrong He already knows what we will do. You must not know suffering like they do. But the commands of God do not change for He is Holy, righteous and perfect. And we are not.

---kathr4453 on 6/20/12

MarkV, funny how in another blog you say it is a sin to speed because it is disobeying the law. Then here you try to minimize the felonious crimes by illegal aliens and make excuses for them. Tax evasion, tax fraud, social security fraud, and identity fraud are no small crimes. Certainly worse crimes than speeding to church. No adult illegal immigrant could survive in America without committing these crimes at a minimum. Do you know what it is like to have your identity stolen? Someone else using your social security number to get work and get money? This hurts hardworking citizens and you are okay with it.

If God doesnt love them, then why should we? Stick to your guns!!

It seems many illegals have false SS cards and stolen identies from legitimate American citizens. What a mess. And look at those who became citizens honestly, and how hard they worked and waited to do it legally.

What a slap in the face.

If it's God's WILL then they do not have to do so dishonestly. God is in control, correct. But your saying God has to work the system through dishonest means for His will to be done?

That's twisted.

Illegal immigrants have fraudulent documents ,counterfeit Social Security cards, forged drivers licenses, fake green cards, and phony birth certificates. Experts suggest that approximately 75 percent of working-age illegal aliens use fraudulent Social Security cards to obtain employment.

98 percent Social Security number (SSN) thieves use their own names with stolen numbers. The federal E-Verify program, now mandated in only 14 states, can detect this fraud. Universal, mandatory use of E-Verify would curb this and stop virtually 100 percent of child identity theft.

Illegal immigration and high levels of identity theft go hand-in-hand. States with the most illegal immigration also have high levels of job-related identity theft.

Mark V thank you for understanding what I meant. When I was in Old Mexico I gave to the Beggers in the streets. Those little grandmothers that sold gum I bought from. I was moved to compassion but one looked at the amount of money I gave her and gave me a dirty look. What I am getting at is you cannot take everything at face value any longer. Just like the man on the curb begging close to home and then got into a new model car and drove away. There are also the scam artists,of many races,now who make a living begging at churches and State roadside restrooms. The churches in this area quit giving strangers help. It's a sad world,where a lie comes as easily as the truth and many love to live off of anyone they can con. We must give wisely.

Sister Darline, you said,

" Mark V my point is that America can no longer afford to help all the world"

From America's point of view you are correct. From a Christian point of view I believe you are wrong. We should give all we can to the needy, no matter where they come from. Jesus made that very clear when He mentioned that He was in need and no one gave. He needed a drink and no one gave. We don't have to give all, but we can sure give what we can. If we truly believe God will take care of His children, we should have the faith that He will no matter what. If it was Jed's mother who needed the help, I would help her anyway I could, knowing that God in return would take care of me.

Mark V, I understand what you're saying here, but, breaking the Law is wrong. For even dirt poor people to steal is still stealing and is wrong. You're right that many upper elite with their greed has destroyed many, but, we have to follow the Law or utter Chaos will ensue. I believe that so many of the problems are due to much of the American Churches not following their GOD-given, Biblical Mandates to not only Evangelize, but to stand up for what is Right and against what is Wrong. And, for being worldly rather than a "salt" and "light" to this nation and to other countries.

MarkV, your bleeding heart liberal attitude has nothing to do with the LAWS in our Country. Why not let those who steal get away with it because the NEED what they steal?

Are you an Illegal?
---kathr4453 on 6/19/12

MarkV, if people want to become citizens and bring their families here, they can do so LEGALLY if they are willing to go throught the steps necessary to abide by the law. This will weed out the ones are just trying to take advantage of our system with no intent on becoming US citizens or raising their families here. We can't do away with laws simply because they don't benefit everyone. The risk of not upholding the law far outweighs any reason to do away with them. They are in place for a reason, the greater good for everyone. We can't sacrifice our security and way of life to help a few.
---Jed on 6/19/12

Cluny I'm sure that does happen. I admit to you the language test may be a bit faulty. I used that from seeing Illegals around here who can't speak English,always asking someone who does whats being said. Mark V my point is that America can no longer afford to help all the world. We are no longer the land of plenty. We are in debt,if something isn't done soon to stop all the outflow of borrowed money and influx of Illegal Aliens we will be in the same shape Mexico is. As a Christian I would obey the Law and I would not help anyone I knew was breaking it because that makes me guilty too. I truely am sorry for those who suffer through no fault of their own.

Part 2: I'm not suggesting to break the laws of God or goverment. We are all intitle by God to do for our families what we can to help them. Most of the people who come, come because they want a better life for their families. Otherwise they would stay where they live. America is a country from many nationalities. I do know many make money and send it home, when they could spend the money here, they are still trying to help their families still in the other countries. They should go by the rules, yet many do and still cannot come over unless they come illigal. My own opinion. I know why many complain about illigals. I'm not one, but my grand-grand parents were. What we do know, is that God is in control of all things. Even my existence here.

Some of you suggest you don't sin but illigals do? What would you do if your family had nothing and the only way to help your family was bring them to America? You would do whatever you could to help them. As a Christian, would you deny them help? A place to sleep, a place to stay, a way to make a better life for them as Jesus would? Would you say you love God with all of your heart but are not be willing to help someone in need when you have more?

As for the language barrier, my grandparents did learn broken English, though they kept their Polish language at home. My Mom speaks English, and has all but forgotten her Polish.

Darlene, I understand your frustration about the Anchor Babies. I truly do. Unfortunately, changing the requirements for citizenship would require a Constitutional amendment. It is clearly written in the Constitution that anybody born in the United States is automatically a citizen.

On the flipside of this discussion. I have friends that are missionaries. Dad is American, Mom was born in France. Son was born in Algeria. Daughter was born in Tunisia. Mom became a U.S. citizen. Son and daughter are able to claim citizenship in three different countries because of their parents' citizenship in countries, plus their place of birth.

This is the proof of what I said about the economy. The USA Governments US Accountability Office reported in 1995 there was 1.1 billion dollars paid out in Aid to Dependent Children and Food Stamps to Illegal Aliens who had USA citizen children. This also reflects what I said about the need to only allow babies born to USA citizens to be made citizens themselves. Two other reports said 50% of Legal Aliens and 70% of Illegal Aliens in Texas draw welfare money and or benefits. A country cannot support that many noncontributing members of Society and not feel the crunch.

And that other friend of yours was even born in America and refuses to speak English and chooses to speak Spanish instead? Why the disrespect for his own country? Anyways, I'm not really sure what all this has to do with illegals. We were talking about deporting ILLEGAL immigrants. No one ever suggested deporting legal citizens who don't speak English, as disrespectful as that may be. We are talking about peole who have chosen to break multiple laws and commit multiple felonies in our country.

I am not a mad dog jumping to conclusions with out all the facts. There was a time all people who lived in America spoke English even the ones who came from other Countries learned how to do it,now it seems some don't bother to do that. What is scary is people who put their head in the sand and won't see what is really happening,people coming here wanting to make America an annex to their home Country instead of becoming Americans. People can keep their Ethnic pride and customs and still learn English and the American way,which brought them here to begin with.

Although the wife does speak a little English, she is more proficient in Spanish. If you saw her on the street and tried to talk to her you would probably want to send her back to Mexico.

(c: Hi, Jim . . . do you go by Christian standards? If you steal something, do you need to return it? Who owned that land north of the Rio
Grande River . . . before Americans killed Mexicans in order to take that land from them? So . . . if God in His all-managing of things has ruled that Mexicans may come across the Rio Grande because their earlier people were murdered in order to take their land . . . this is God's choice. What do you think? If someone killed your family members in order to take your land and forced you to sign papers giving them your land . . . I think we need to care about others as much as ourselves.

America definitely should have open-doors for foreigners to come to America, to live and to become Americans, and do so LEGALLY! :-) And, when a foreigner comes to America to become a citizen and live, they should wave the AMERICAN flag, and keep their Foreign Flag INDOORS! (We understand that you love your birth-country, we applaud that, but, you're an AMERICAN now. Live like it!) SOME illegals give birth to babies here DELIBERATELY, making deliberate "ties" so that their babies can be "legal citizens" in hopes that America won't deport THEM (and separate them from their infant citizens). Some illegals are here for the money, but, their heart is only for their native country and NOT America. They are like rapists.

KarenD, you have no idea what you are talking about. First of all, all minorities, including hispanics, have a FAR higher percentage of people on welfare than whites. Get your facts straight. Secondly, in order for an illegal immigrant to get on welfare or in the military, they would have had to commit welfare fraud and identity fraud. If I was caught applying for welfare or a job using a fake social security number or identification, I would be facing many years in prison. Why would you suggest it is okay for illegal immigrants to commit these kinds of crimes? As I already pointed out, it is impossible for an illegal immigrant to have survived into adulthood without having also committed tax evasion and identity fraud among other crimes.

They all speak Spanish of some sort, and play the typical Polka music on the job site.

I've heard other workers complain about the illegals on the jobsite. But are they?? How do you know??

I've always advocated the clown car test. You know, the Volkswagen bug with 14 clowns in it?

If there are 14 workers, and only 1 car, chances are they are illegal.

But if there are 14 workers and 9 cars, they are legal.

Before some of you (like Darlene) start discussing something you know nothing about, come out here and live on the border of Mexico for awhile. Ask Cluny and he will tell you that it is pretty close to impossible to know who is legal and illegal by just looking. I believe that if you check statistics, it is WHITE people who are in the majority on welfare. Again, I say that there are many adults who did not realize they were illegal. Ask the military how they have illegals serving.

KarenD, How could you possibly be an illegal immigrant and not know it? Almost anything you do as an adult requires a social security number, which of course illegals do not have. If you had ever applied for a job or a driver's license or gone to school you would know if you were an illegal immigrant or not. Being here illegally is not the only crime they have committed. In order to survive here illegally, they've also had to commit many other crimes like tax evasion, tax fraud, identity fraud, driving without license, etc. All crimes that would sent an American citizen to jail or prison. But the non-citizens not only go unpunished, they get rewarded for these crimes?

\\I say no to anchor babies and go back to your country and wait in line. \\

That would require a Constitutional amendment.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Darlene, I have seldom seen such a line of garbage of what you just posted.

Where are you getting this?

I am Jim... what country am I blogging with? I was hoping for the USA. America comes first not illegals. We spend billions on illegals, free hospital care, anchor babies, milk and lunch programs for school kids. I say no to anchor babies and go back to your country and wait in line. What part of illegal don't you understand??

At what point is a person brought into the USA as a child responsible legally for being an illegal immigrant? (I don't pretend to know the answer.)

\\I think you don't know what you are talking about.

Looks like the Bottom Line is your bottom line. Your precious bank accounts rate higher on the scale of importance than people. Funny!

Jim...What would you do with two parents who are illegals and all six kids are US born?
---KarenD on 6/17/12

Cluny I agree. Also,the majority of illegals don't speak English,or see that their children do,and have contributed to our Nations Economic decline. It costs millions or more to educate their children. Texas schools all have English classes to teach the children who only speak Spanish. The USA should start with a law that only children born to Legal Citizens of the USA are born a citizen. I am not prejudice against Mexicans I have several blood relatives I love who are half Mexican. The problem isn't the Ethnic group but their inability to take care of themselves and their families and the fact that some of them come to the USA to work and send a large portion of what they make back to relatives in Mexico,building economy in Mexico,not USA.

There are certain criteria that must be met in order to be granted that amnesty. Age requirements, education requirements and legal requirements. Plus, they are only granted a work visa, not automatic citizenship.

Jim...What impact does this decision have on America? What would you do with adults who have been here since they were babies and who had no idea they were illegal? Some have even served in the military. You gonna send those who fought for our freedom to another country? What about the college student who is going to be a doctor, nurse, teacher, etc?

He is clearly courting the Latino vote at the expense of the US Constitution and neglecting his presidential duties.

If the immigration law is to be changed in any way, this should be by Congress, which has sole legislative power.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
