(a) Dear Editor:
ID's unsigned (08/31/09) editorial,"The Antis," condemns
NumbersUSA for racism. "The unifying theme behind the anti-
immigrationists and the anti-Obamites is the same - racism." And
yet, the editorial itself is an example of prejudice.
NumbersUSA invites ID readers to visit One will
find rational policy arguments attempting to demonstrate that
continued large scale immigration into the US is not in the best
interests of our nation or of the world. One will find videos in
which people of diverse ethnic backgrounds discuss why they
believe immigration reduction is a good idea. We have a recent
blog showing that the population of the US is perfectly on track
to reach 1.182 billion in the year 2100, according to U.S. census
bureau data. No statement ever made by NumbersUSA is remotely
similar to the sentiments expressed by an unnamed New Hampshire
protester.  NumbersUSA specifically says in the upper right
corner of its website, "Say No to Immigrant Bashing."  ID has
prejudged NumbersUSA. If a member of Congress has a hard time
believing that President Obama is a natural-born citizen of the
United States, then that's his or her business. NumbersUSA has no
association with the Representative; all we did was assign him an
immigration grade of B+. ID has found us guilty by non-
association. NumbersUSA is not "anti-immigration."  We are pro-
immigration in the national interest, pro-jobs for American
workers, and pro-environment. NumbersUSA is not "at the cutting
edge of those opposing the current administration." NumbersUSA
congratulated President Obama on his election, and we commented
favorably upon his inaugural address.  President Obama has stated
that his will be a transparent and participatory administration.
The Obama administration should meet with us.

    Guess we all knew the special interest groups, lead by the US Chamber of Commerce and a large majority of pro-illegal worker organization, would try to upend the US Federal court order from apply E-Verify in September? If I had my way I as a citizen would--BOYCOTT-- any company, store, factory, farm or manufacturing plant that didn't display an E-Verify notice in their working place. They certainly don't care one-iota for the American workers jobless or not? Both illegal immigration and health care are tied into the same knot and will have a hard time passing. Immigration reform will be the battle of the century and all those politicians who sign up for it, are likely be signing up also for unemployment benefits.

    This piece of potential immigration reform legislation, is not being fully advanced to the public and veiled until after enactment? Legislators have dug there immigration reform grave and must now suffer the consequences. Accept they are looking for an easy avenue, to get out of the coffin they hammered in with their own nails. As with most civilized countries we are predisposed to treatment for any illegal alien in emergency hospitals. Except that this hospitals have become an open-house for any minor ailment to very expensive problems like dialysis?. In addition any public option, must have some stipulation in the bill that illegal immigrants from gaining access. The problem is there is absolutely nothing in this health care bill containing any text to--CLOSE LOOPHOLES--that would disallow millions of illegal immigrants from participating?

    Either way illegal Immigrants will get full access to THE PEOPLES health care, if the Democrats pass a path to citizenship or better known as BLANKET AMNESTY. The American people no longer believe in the propaganda that spills from the national press, about the illegal immigrant travesty, public health care from the mob in Washington? Perhaps we should look towards the single payer system that has succeeded in Europe? Instead of listening to the choking rhetoric from the special interest organizations that have erupted on radio and television.

    They can yell from the hills that there is only 13 million foreign nationals and families occupying our soil, but that number has been programmed into us for about 10 years. Most bloggers estimate at least twenty million plus, with more appearing everyday and more on the way if a path to citizenship is forced through the Congress? How counterproductive can this be in passing health care treatment, when the teeming numbers already here pay nothing in the emergency room? Even the employers who hire them pay nothing, then slink away and leave the debt for taxpayers to pick up or the hospital to absorb? Even if it could be calculated the amount of money in government expenditures over decades, given to support these invaders, it would pay for the wars our politician subject us too? When are these pandering lawmakers going to work for all Americans and protect their jobs. Which they didn't establish in the original stimulus bills, but even then left a gaping loophole for illegal foreign workers.
    We must assure that all American workers are gainfully employed, not individuals who have no right to be in our nation? It makes me sick to see veterans of Korea, Viet-Nam, the Gulf war walking the streets homeless, while illegal immigrants get gratification from employers and lawmakers. WE NO LONGER CAN SUPPORT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. OUR COUNTRY IS NEAR BANKRUPTCY. DEMAND E-VERIFY TO CHECK THE IMMIGRATION STATUS FOR EVERY US WORKER, BY CONTACTING YOUR LAWMAKER AT 202-224-3121. VOTERS SHOULD COMMAND NO MORE WEAKENING OF ANY LAWS INCLUDING 1986 (IRCA) IMMIGRATION CONTROL & REFORM ACT. JOIN NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIAL WATCH AND BE STUNNED HOW MILLIONS OF VOICES HAVE MADE AN INCREDULOUS DIFFERENCE.
