It infuriates me to no end to have to wait in the driver's license line for hours to get my license renewed, have to show a birth certificate, although I have been a legal driver since the age of 16, show proof of residence, even though the address on my old license and even my DL number are the same and the DL number has been the same for over 40 years, and yet illegals drive around with no license and no insurance.
Their blatant flaunting of our laws has caused health care to rise to insane heights, and yet WE and the LEGAL aliens are the ones that have to pay for this outrage, while bleeding heart liberals whine about them just here to improve their lives. Really? If others can come here and go thru the proper channels to become citizens entitled to all the rights and privleges afforded why can't the illegals? Stop pandering to the danged Hispanic vote and start working for those of us who actually got here the right wayt!!
I searched and wasn't certain if there was a more recent discussion that addressed ICE/illegal immigrants so I'm posting this current story here (please let us know if there's a better location for this article):
ICE launches hotline for busted immigrants
By MACKENZIE WEINGER | 12/29/11 2:05 PM EST
As states across the nation ramp up their efforts to catch illegal immigrants, the Obama administration on Thursday launched a new free hotline for people busted on violations to get help.
The hotline, run by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, is available 24/7 for detained individuals to phone if they think they “may be U.S. citizens or victims of a crime.”
The hotline will have translation services available in several different languages. ICE personnel will gather the caller’s information and send it to a field office for immediate action, according to the press release.
The purpose of the hotline and other measures, including a new detainer form, are “to ensure that individuals being held by state or local law enforcement on immigration detainers are properly notified about their potential removal from the country and are made aware of their rights.”
The new practices are “part of a broader effort to improve our immigration enforcement process and prioritize resources to focus on threats to public safety, repeat immigration law violators, recent border entrants and immigration fugitives while continuing to strengthen oversight of the nation’s immigration detention system and facilitate legal immigration,” ICE wrote in its press release.
There are 2 current options for "immigrants" to be get on fast tract to citizenship. Yet I never hear any pinko sympathisers encouraging "immigrants" to use them. One is joining the military; which is already required of "all males in US 18+ years old" and to foreign investors of at least $500K. Neither of these options are asking much are they?
Probe reveals feds pressuring agents to rush immigrant visas – even if fraud is feared
Higher-ups within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are pressuring rank-and-file officers to rubber-stamp immigrants’ visa applications, sometimes against the officers’ will, according to a Homeland Security report and internal documents exclusively obtained by The Daily.
A 40-page report, drafted by the Office of Inspector General in September but not publicly released, details the immense pressure immigration service officers are under to approve visa applications quickly, sometimes while overlooking concerns about fraud, eligibility or security.
One-quarter of the 254 officers surveyed said they have been pressured to approve questionable cases, sometimes “against their will.”

Obama gives Sanctuary City Status to Entire Nation
Could this be the beginning of giving amnesty to illegals?
Actually a number of states are doing this.
Criminal street gangs—mostly comprised of illegal immigrants—are responsible for the majority of violent crimes in the United States and are the primary distributors of most illicit drugs.
The alarming, but not surprising, information is revealed in a new report published by the Justice Department’s National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC), an FBI task force created in 2005 to curb the growing threat of violent gangs in the U.S. The NGIC teams up with state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the nation to enforce, study and intercept gangs and has published several reports documenting their activities.
Before the agency’s publication was made public a national newspaper revealed some of its findings. It says that up to 80% of crime in the U.S. is committed by gangs and that gang membership in this country has grown to 1 million, an increase of 200,000 in the last few years.
well, to some poimt we are all illegal immigrants or did the Native American Indians invite us to their country ?
But of Course the Obama Regime likes to get their votes, my be we could change this by attracting them to conservative ideas....
Gov. Jan Brewer, R-Ariz., says she has first-hand evidence Mexican drug cartels are on the verge of breaching her state’s border.
“I was just down there last week,” Brewer said in an interview on Fox News.
“I was with the National Guard. I was in a Blackhawk. I saw them on the other side, the drug cartels, ready to come across in the middle of the night. It is not secure.”
Brewer said the border is not secure, the fences aren’t completed and there isn’t enough law enforcement on the ground.
