I'm yet another American, sick and ashamed of my government, and enraged by all the STUPID Mexican flags I saw on TV on Sat.
I'm looking forward to not showing up for work on Monday April 17th, and not spending one cent that day, maybe that week, as DA King advocated on the Terry Anderson SHow last night
I've got a lot of other e-mails to write at the moment(to politicians), but I just wanted to say I'm here, DA King.

OHH my God what a bright idea!!! A day without Americans!!! you're smarter than that Mr. King why copy someone else's ideas?? you're patetic!
You know keep dreaming nothing its going to happen you can secure your borders, build your stupid wall, we'll always find our way across the border, face realty you know how that is. America is not yours in fact its no one's this is a country of immigrants people from all over the world, I was born in Mexico and I am american because America it's a continent.
Please do post this comment MR. KING

I came to the States legally, nonetheless, I don't feel superior of others who have not been bless in the same way. It is a flat lie to say that the first white people who came to this country came legally. Only the natives have a right to say they are the proud owners of this land. They were kill, persecuted and massacrated by your ancestors.
Strict laws were created based in race profiling.
America is a whole continent, not just a country. I am a US citizen and an american by birth.
If your movement is based in giving the rights back to the Indian Nation, welcome. But it is not. It is based in bigotry, and ignorance. I don't have to apologize to my children about their ancestry, what I can apologize is about the ignorants and racist people who accuse poor humble people as terrorists. Yes, the terrorists whose only ideal is a good future for their family, whose "Jihad" is to survive, and work, no matter what or where to support this country. Their battleground are the farms, the streets, the low paying jobs that individuals like yourselves would not take.
Don't call yourself christians, God did not create borders, men did. Shame on yourself, wolves dress like sheep. You are only working for the evil.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am a black female veteran and I can't Believe what is going on in Norcross: my son is getting bullied by them. I feel Like I am in another country, the way they have taken over. In my older car I got hit by one of them, and he went into a night club with no concern. I Am tire of the graffiti, and tired of them getting resoures that I as a tax Paying american veteran can not have.

An ex-con (felony rap?) runs around making a lot of noise and appears in the AJC? What the fuck? Crawl back into the hole from whence you came, and, oh yeah, tough guy, I'll be looking for you at the next rally...PLEASE, wave your drivers license (do ex-cons get those?) around as you wade through small Hispanic people so I know who you are, asswipe.

I heard D A King on Russ and Dee this morning on 101.1 radio station here in Alabama and was very interested in what he had to say about the illegal issue and and day of the 'revolt' where we show the government what it is like with out Americans doing the job right. I plan on taking April 17th off work to show my support in making a point to the powers that be. I am using it as a paid off day but the mission is still being accomplished. I work am trying to spread the word to other friends here and other co-workers here to also take that day off.
About 6 years ago I lived in Marietta Ga so the Dustin Inman Society is hitting close to my old home and the Illegal problem is hitting close to everyone's home and something needs to be done. I want to do all I can and do my part for this country that we are losing.

This is just a brief note thanking you for your commitment to make our federal immigration laws mean something.
I am the product of legal immigration. My paternal grandfather came to this country in 1896 from a small village in Greece. My maternal grandparents did the same thing. And guess what? They went through Ellis Island, signed their names and addresses on a piece of paper, got jobs, paid taxes and took care of their children. They all studied hard to be able to recite the pledge of allegiance to this country, eventhough they were not literate in the English language. They considered it a blessing to be here and didn't expect anyone to pay their way. My paternal grandfgather worked 40 years at a tannery to feed and care for my father and my aunts and uncles.
How come it's different for this newest group? How come it's okay for them to cross our borders illegally; to get false social security cards and driver's licenses; to work for cash money and pay no taxes, yet expect us "suckers" to pickup their health care costs; and then waive the flag of their native country protesting the passage of laws intended to enforce what should already be enforced.
You keep doing what you're doing. Make it clear you welcome those immigrants who want to enter this country lawfully and who wish to pledge their allegiance to this country. Mention those who have joined our armed forces and who have given their lives for this country.
Just read about you in the AJC and am so glad somebody is standing up since our politicians and President will not!!
Thank you for what you're doing. We MUST stop this flood of illegals into the US before a event occurs that makes 9-11 look mild.
I simply don't understand why illegals are allowed to protest - since they're ILLEGAL why are they given that right? Does this mean Al Que Da would be given the same right to protest?

First of all I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I was born in Mexico and moved to the US when I was 2. My family consist of a Mother Father and two sisters. We were raised in Smyrna by both parents and I would like you to know I have never witnessed my parents fight and I am now 20 years old. Unlike a lot of white families that end their marriages after 3 years and 5 kids. They are the kind of people who get up at 6:00am to cook your food and build your houses and get home between 4:00pm to 8:00pm to be with there family.
I thank God we are all now Citizens of this country. None of my family has ever asked the government for help nor have they killed anyone. I can also say that they have paid taxes on all of the money they have made in this country. I belive that if you are here to work and make something of yourself then why should you have to leave as for all the criminals make them go back. You complain about how we are living off of the government and taking your jobs I work off of highway 41 and witness homeless people that are all white stand under bridges and ask for money is that what the American way is? Maybe you would like us to do that maybe then we would be okay with people like you. I'm sure you are one of those people that say "I'm .2 percent Cherokee indian so that makes me a native" or maybe you are just one of those that wears pointed white hoods and has pictures of hitler in his bedroom!!!! Who ever you are may God give you wisdom.

Friday in Gailesville, GA was great. I went to work uptown with no traffic. Any guess as to why this was?... Ok, you can figure this one out.

Why hasn't some group organized rallies to counter these ridiculous rallies staged by the pro-illegal immigration groups? If they can get 100,000 people in the streets of Chicago, where are the millions of American citizens who abhor illegal aliens? Is anyone doing anything besides talking about this problem?
M.B., Augusta, GA
What you wrote and believe is so wrong, did you ever take the time to get to know a mexican? your so racist and many other things. Mexicans AREN'T "aliens", most do come for a better life here. And its not there falt they don't get caught soon enough, you know before they get here and start a fresh new life. You're hurtful and the way you think is so stupid. I know your right about needing to control the number that gets passed the border, i agree. But that doesnt mean that there "aliens" or have more money in mexico and are here to do bad. Mexicans have become or are becomeing the "slaves of the 21st century" to americans. It's not fair for them. Think about how they feel.

As a child of LEGAL U.S. immigrants I want to thank you for the work you are doing. As for all the ILLEGALS writting in and complaining I say to you go back to your own countries and complain to their own governments about changing their laws. Don't come into a foreign country and try to make them change for you. It's nonsense. We came to this country because we wanted to be a part of a great nation and have the benefits that come with citizenship. In return we agreed to assimulate as best we could into the mass population by learning the common language, and abiding by the laws made by the people of this country. If you are not native NORTH American Indian from this region OR have not gone through the legal system you have no right to be here, just as anyone who enters Mexico, Guatamala, Brasil have no right to be in their countries if they did not do so by way of their government.
Mexico is cruel to ANY illegals from other hispanic countries who enter their border, often imprisoning them or worse. Honduras kicked out a mass population salvadorians who entered their country illegally. WHY is it ok for them to do this and it's a crime for the U.S. not to? You get what you give and ALL the countries in the world have a MUCH harsher penalty for illegals than the U.S. does. Watch the news and see about the cuban refugees that made it to the bahamas and were put in prison.
It is embarrassing for the legal hispanics in this country to watch how illegal hispanics are staining the immage of law abiding immigrants. Many of us who are supposed to be here because we are a part of this country legally are starting to be clumped together with law breaking illegals. You are destroying our way of life and you won't get any sympathy from us. You are citizens of foreign countries regaurdless of us sharing the same culture and similar histories. Mexico and Columbia have an overwhelming similar culture but THEY are still separate and soverign countries and their people would be offended to be confused with the other. You would get a dirty look from any Puerto Rican if you call them Mexicans. If Guatamala sends a mass influx of illegal immigrants to Cuba, the Cubans would retaliate. If you want to be welcomed in this country start by not trying to bust the front door down, the majority of people will feel threatened and call the police on you. Come as a responsible, mannered, humble guest. Knock first, and only when you are invited come in. You will be welcomed.

It's very sad but true to face reality. From what I remember U.S.A is made up of immigrants. Yes, fortunately all of them are all now legalized. In a certain aspect I understand that the nation has to do something regarding Immigration, something that will benefit the nation and these immigrants.
From what I have read this organization started over the simple fact of ignorance, hate, and pride. So why cant one just accept the fact that unfortunately there are criminals all over the country black, white, immigrants. Some who have killed , raped, stole. Society as whole needs to do something to punish these criminals but why punish someone who from human instict does what any one would have done, seek a better life.
Unfortunately many of you racist people don't realize that one must learn to forgive!!! do you think it was planned to kill Dustin? I dont think so but unfortunately thats how life works. The man who accidently killed dustin needs to be punished but I beleive that!
It's simple ignorance that just because he was hispanic and an immigrant that doesn't mean that all immigrants are all killers or criminals. At the end of the day God is the only one who will judge all of us.

I recently moved to Bend Oregon from Southern California to get away from the mass influx of Illegals taking my job away for cheap labors. I was a carpet installers for twenty years until I was forced out by the illegals and the employer who hire them to avoid paying payroll taxes, workman compensation and other legal business expenses.
It happening again in Oregon. When will this ever stop! It wrong for the true americans who fought, live and work in this country. They can get driver license without proof of residence and I had to two two (2) form of photo ID inorder to get my driver license.
That is appalling!!! We must stop the over run of illegals coming and take our jobs away. It all for the employer benefits. There are plenty of americans who want to work but can't because employer hires them instead. This madness must stop. Noone is being a bigot or racist, it all about enforcing the law!!

I am glad that I found your website. I have been wanting to ask this question to someone with your point of view so that I can make sure that you understand the financial implications of a USA without illegal immigration. You may know someone on social security, I know many Americans on social security. They are very good people. They worked very hard for the money they earned over their lifetime. Many rely on Social security for their primary source of income. Here is my question:
Given the number of illegal workers in the United States of America who, through non-negotiable payroll deductions, pay into the social security system but never take a social security benefit, do you understand what it would do to America's retired and disabled lower class if they (illegal workers) were all to be deported?
Given the current fragility of the American Economy, do you know what it would do to GDP if we deported all illegal immigrants?
I just wondered. Let me know what you think.

How many terrorists do you think come across the Mexican border?? Do you think the muslims would work that hard to get here? I believe all the 9/11 terrorists came here by plane because they have lots of money, not like the poor people of Mexico. I know a retired gentleman who made $4.00 per day for 30 years.! Do you think you could raise a family on that? These people come here to try and make a better life for themselves and their family. They all send money back home for kids, parents and siblings. They also take jobs on that no lazy american would do. They wash dishes, cook your food, cut your grass build your house and roads etc etc I was in restuarant business for 32 years, the last 20 no white person would apply for a cook or dish job, especially the young spoiled brats we have out there that are given everything by mommy and daddy like their beamers and lexuses.I agree the borders should be secure but what would many industries do without these low wage employees. In!
Atlanta 22 years ago we paid cooks $13 to $15 per hour now they pay the Mexicans $8 - $10 for more work.The3 bill purposed by Mc Cain and Kennedy make s the most sense. Read it! We do have some bad Mexicans here as we do blacks and whites drug pushers, gang members etc do we get rid of them? why not lets send them to Iraq to kill our ememies and each other instead of our kids.Why aren't we getting rid of the muslims?? They are rioting and killing all over the world because of a fing cartoon!!!
