Why should it be "humiliating" for you to request that many on whose behalf you have given so much of your time and financial resources help return some of these to you when you need them? I had been meaning to contribute $100 anyway; I wish I had sent it sooner! Thank you again for all you both have done on behalf of so many other Americans and their families! Please keep us advised of your financial situation there as necessary.

I am interested in doing what I can to stop illegal immigration, I have never been in an activist roll before, but am concerned for the future of our nation. I am trying to get better informed on the issues, the laws,etc. I feel I can no longer just watch and complain, I need to try to make a change.

I have visited countless blogs and websites that claim to be anti-illegal alien. I ask, what can I do to make my contribution to win the battle. No one ever even responds. Except you. Thanks again.
Thank you for your sacrifices for our state and nation. I have only recently seen the need to get involved in this fight. As a Christian minister there is a side of me that sees and understands the plight of illegals. But the more I study the issue, the more I see that is more than "work" they are after. Further, the Bible teaches that we are to obey the laws of our land. The illegals are not doing that and I am going against my own beliefs if I don't try to stop this madness.
I love America and what she stands for. I fear for my children and their future. I hate what is happening to this country and I cannot believe that our President loves illegals more than his own people. I voted for him twice and regret it every day now. I have been a staunch Republican over the years, but my loyalty is waning.
I wish I could do more than gripe and support financially. I want to stop my vehicle and confront the construct bosses who hire illegals.
You can expect a donation before the end of the month. I will try to give you the requested $100, but being Christmas, well, we'll just see.
I will also make donations at other times during the 2007 year.
I am willing to help in others ways as well. Just let me know what I can do to stand with you in the national fight.
I just wanted to write and say thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you guys are trying to do. I recently saw Mr. D.A King on the CNN Documentary about Illegal Immigration. I was ashamed of my own country and it's people when I saw Mr. King standing alone against roughly 500 or more illegal immigrants picketing in front of a law building, and no one came to his aid. It's sad to see that no one has any courage anymore to stand up and defend what is there's, but to instead lay down and accept defeat.
Watching this documentary, I couldn't help but think that our own government sat back,watched and did nothing, while Mr. King stood defiantly alone. In my opinion, he should be given a medal for that. I would like to write in and say, that on anyday of the week, anytime you needed someone to stand beside you the next time you go to the public to fight, that I would offer my help.
I will be contributing to this organization and hope that during this election, we might be able to gain some new faces who are willing to help in the struggle to protect our homeland and jobs for the American people.

Congratulations on your efforts to obtain first hand information regarding the problems in securing our border. It is shameful that so many of our national leaders fail to see the peril that has resulted from their inaction. I pray that the abuse that the liberal media will continue to inflict will not deter you in your courageous legislative efforts.
I am writing regarding legislation that I hope you will consider. Yesterday I heard a news report of a soldier, recently returned from Iraq, who was killed by a drunk driver. The driver was an illegal alien WITH a drivers license and a DUI record. The license was issued by Maryland (I believe that was also where the DUI's occurred). Further investigation revealed that Maryland issued the license because the man had a N.C. license.
North Carolina has been issuing licenses to illegals for several years...then the illegals can go to any state and get them re-issued. An effort should be made to STOP this farce! I would like to see legislation introduced stating that Georgia will no longer accept or honor an out-of-state license as valid evidence of identification to acquire a Georgia license. It would be too involved to exclude only N.C. or other such states, because illegals can "launder" the N.C. license so easily. This would require out of state applicants to have the same proof as first time in-state applicants. It is likely such licenses are also being laundered and re-issued right here in this state.
A few days ago Home Depot sent some workmen to my home, one drove the truck. Both were wearing picture IDs that were fashioned after a Georgia DL. One spoke NO English, the driver who was in charge could speak a little, but did not understand too well. He appeared to be about 16 years old. It would be a guess...but, I think it highly unlikely he had a legal Georgia driver's license.
Thank you for what you are doing...you have no idea how many people appreciate what you have accomplished.
I found your website through the CNN special "Immigrant Nation". The material you have amassed on both of the sites is staggering and shocking. I had no idea that the problem of illegal immigrants was so widespread. They truly are trying to take over our country and I am appalled that our government is doing nothing!
So thank you for getting the information out there. I am now a more informed American and I most definitely will be voting in a few days.
I find it sad that you use your site to promote hate. These illegal Mexicans you choose to condemn, you forget the history of the Mexican American war. I ask you, who was it that decided that California was for the taking? who was it that decided that slaves had to be taken from Africa and mistreated, wasn't it until people decided to fight for them too that turned them into free people. I'm saddened that there are immigrants who also forget where they came from, people fought for their forefathers to have rights that they enjoy today, while some forefathers were taken by force, most also came in illegally too, but their history goes so far that they don't realize it. How does it relate to illegal immigration, I'm about to re-educate you on your own history. Correct me if I'm wrong, didn't American forefathers take this very land you hold so dear by force, have you forgotten the real land owners that died because you had to have it.
When Spanish people became Californians, the forefathers of this country forgot that they opened a door that can't be shut, but you know what Mr. King, what's done is done, what realistic ways can be done now to undo the mistakes of the past, this is what people should be working on. The illegal immigrants that you complain use tax id numbers, did you know they pay higher rates for their mortgages, did you know they pay taxes and don't get credits as their punishment, where do you think those taxes go, they come right back to you, but it's easy to forget these kinds of things, I understand. Instead of use this energy to promote the kind of hate and intolerance that force illegals to hide from people like you and the law, endorse ways to ensure that they can be held accountable in a realistic manner that will move the country forward. and before you start deport illegals, make sure you've checked that you will still be able clean your clothes, educate your children, reduce poverty, buy food at reasonable prices, and all the other things that you have come to depend on and take for granted, because I guarantee that as you run through that list in your head, most of the people around you that contribute to your life are/were illegal at some point in time. I have seen Marietta American pride, it is a place filled with so much hate, that they can't see how it's destroying the town.
I know you will come up with some clever way to say this email is more proof that America is in danger, and I expect your argument to be very entertaining, I would be disappointed if you didn't. I also know you would also live up to your reputation, and probably use it to justify intensifying your right to hate. You and your followers probably have a long line of reasons to hate, but remember "AN EYE FOR AN EYE ONLY MAKES THE WORLD GO BLIND".

You're doing the right thing. I have to find a different job after 15 years in the landscaping buisness. I can no longer compete with so low wages. I am mad, no pissed, I'm in Northern CA, and 1/4 of the people refuse to speak English. I saw your interview on CNN. I'm impressed. Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This country needs more patriotic citizens like yourselves. Living in a community near San Diego we too are over run with illegals and all the problems they bring by invading our country. I am encouraged to see that more communities are fighting and doing the job that our government refuses to do. If nothing is done we are going to lose our country and become Mexico. I among others here in San Diego County Want Our Country Back!
Thank you for all you do.

My name is Victor and I am a resident of California. I am against illegal immigration and any sort of amnesty program. The only thing I want to see done is to have more fencing at the border, more border patrol agents, and for our federal government to ENFORCE our immigration laws. That means penalizing companies that hire illegal immigrants and deporting people who can not provide proof of citizenship.
Believe me, you do not want the great state of Georgia to turn into what has happened to many parts of California. In many communities here, Spanish is the primary language. Earlier this year, several hundred thousand illegal aliens marched through the streets of Los Angeles under Mexican flags demanding amnesty for everyone. The Mayor of Los Angeles and other California politicians were there to greet them. If these illegal immigrants had wanted to, they could have taken Los Angeles away from the U.S.A., and no one would have stopped them. We have two garbage senators, Feinstein and Boxer, who both support amnesty for law breakers. My home state is in big trouble.
Unfortunately, for the rest of the nation, President George Bush just does not get the magnitude of the problem. He truly believes that if he gives amnesty to these people, then hispanics will vote for the Republican Party. What a laugh!!! There is no way hispanics will ever be loyal to the GOP. The majority of them will always vote for Democrats. My last name is Gonzalez and I am a Republican because of politicians like Tom Tancredo and Jeff Sessions, not because of open borders policies.
It is great to have a mayor or a senator be against illegal immigration. The problem is that there is only so much one of these elected officials can do. In order for us to take our country back, the United States of America is going to need a president that is against amnesty. It is important that as soon as the midterm elections are finished, we encourage Republicans who support the will of the American people to run for the Republican nomination. It is never too early for someone to announce their candidacy.
The current front runners from both parties are all in favor of amnesty. McCain, Clinton, Gore, and Kerry. I would love to see the RNC wake up to reality and start supporting Tom Tancredo for President. Maybe Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions could be his vice president.
Well, these are just some of my opinions. Remember, crack down on illegal immigration, otherwise, the state of Georgia will turn into a "Mexifornia". Thank you for your efforts against illegal immigration.
