Supporters Rally For Arizona-Style Immigration Law

About 100 Tea Party and Minutemen members rallied at the State Capitol Monday for an immigration bill similar to Arizona’s controversial law. The measure faces a critical committee vote Tuesday.

Above: Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (R-Twin Peaks) speaks at a rally for an Arizona-style immigration bill in California.

The bill’s author, Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, said it would require employers to use the federal e-verify system and crack down on drug cartels and human trafficking.

“It ends sanctuary cities by letting citizens sue and hold accountable any municipality or city that creates a sanctuary policy like San Francisco,” Donnelly said. “That’s critical.”

About a football field away, with CHP officers on horseback in-between, about 12 people marched in protest. Lino Pedres with the Service Employees International Union organized the group.

“This type of legislation only divide(s) our community, pits one group against the others, and this type of legislation is not fair in California,” Pedres said.

Donnelly’s bill likely has a tough test before the Democratic-controlled Assembly Judiciary Committee.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION! ONLY WHAT THE LIBERAL MEDIA TELLS YOU?

When the Liberal, Democrats or Republicans talk about reducing the huge deficit, they fail to discuss the illegal immigration invasion. However the TEA PARTY does and will not deviate from the facts that the Southwest is being occupied. When the Census says the population has exploded over a short period of time. It's self-explanatory that these people are spilling across the border, with limited personal to stop the rush. The US government continuously lied to us, and the only measure of reducing illegal immigration is to unite with the TEA PARTY.

More and more so-called Sanctuary Cities are spring up, because of this massive influx. The Sanctuary State of California leads the way with a 26 Billion dollar deficit, with Nevada, New Mexico and other acutely aware they are suffering in the same way. California taxpayers are suffering terribly, with even the possibility of higher taxes. The major cause is the overwhelmingly influence of the Liberal media and the over representation of Liberal-Socialist lawmakers in the State Capitol subsidizing illegal alien household. The Heritage foundation, the nationwide policy institute stated in the report detailing what happened to the roughly 1,200 illegal immigrants terminated in Minnesota after a work site audit occurred at two companies, Chipotle Mexican Grill and Harvard Maintenance.

The federal government has a obligation in the "Oath of Allegiance," 8 C.F.R. Part 337 (2008)) to defend America from enemies domestic and foreign. America needs policing laws such as Arizona, Missouri and other States. The US administration has failed us miserably as we have seen with areas of the US frontier, being held by murdering drug cartels, and the deaths of US Border agents and ranchers. Not to forget the terrorist killers whose incursions are being assisted by the drug peddlers.

The Obama Administration has roughly 1,000 actively run immigration audits on businesses, across the United States. There analysis has shown that terminated illegal immigrants, simply are remaining in America during this time of heightened unemployment, but terminated more children are being born here less attrition through deportation. During their time in the United States, the 200 illegal immigrants gave birth to a total of 760 children subject to birthright citizenship. Under the current law that means taxpayers are forced by the 14th amendment to pay the costs of hospital pre and post natal visits, the delivery, food stamps, Wicca, State Medicaid, lower income housing and cash payments.

Even before Obama became President Politicians have hid their intentions, not to reduce illegal and legal immigration. 1.. They would have made illegal entry a felony, just like Mexico? 2. They would have data ]a base in airports, to chase down visa overstays? 3. They would have fully funded the 2006 Secure Fence act, to be constructed as a 15 foot double layer border barrier, adorned with nasty razor wire; which was underfunded from the start. It makes no sense to remove the 1500 military from the border in June. The should be manning the fence with 5000 more soldiers? 4. There would be 5000 US troops on the frontier with Mexico to stop the criminal carnage from spilling over and threatening landowners in all four Border States. 5 E-Verify "Attrition" program would not have been emasculated by the good old boy, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada.

ALL BUSINESS OWNERS CAUGHT EMPLOYING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS MUST GO TO PRISON AS THEIR STEALING JOBS FROM THE 9 MILLION AMERICAN OUT OF WORK They should not be handled with kid gloves but harshly fined, all business assets confiscated and a mandatory prison sentence. Not a home held imprisonment. MILLIONS OF FOREIGN NATIONALS, INCLUDING CRIMINALS HAVE ENTERED AMERICA, IN THE PAST TWENTY YEARS AND THE MAJORITY ARE STILL HERE. If you agree with billions of dollars supporting illegal aliens and their families--DO NOTHING. But if you have just had another of this sickening joke on the hard working taxpayer, locate a local TEA PARTY to join. The spreading millions of TEA PARTY'ERS are in this war, to halt this 20 million plus settlement for good. Find more information and what illegal immigration is costing your payroll check at NumbersUSA. Call you Federal or State representative today demanding your rights as a taxpayer and end this parody of our immigration laws.

TEA PARTY says no Immigration Reform (amnesty); No Sanctuary Cities; No Chain Migration (Limited amnesty); No Dream Act (Another form of amnesty) no nothing! They broke our sovereign laws.

We can no longer trust our voting system, as shown in New Mexico, Colorado, and New York as illegal aliens have compromised absentee ballots. We must have Federal intervention or malleable States that cross reference driver’s licenses, Social Security numbers or authorities ID, as our elections are being exploited by criminal organization such as ACORN; they have not disbanded, but just changed their name.

News: Did you know that airlines are outsourcing maintenance to foreign countries, where only the foreman speaks English. .GOD HELP US!

I concur with most of the above comments. America not only allows illegal immigration but encourages it through bad policies.
