Illegal Aliens Thumb Noses at U.S. Immigration Law

President Obama continues to call for amnesty for illegal aliens to bring them out of the “shadows.” Well, the Administration must be blind because many of them are right in the spotlight. In fact, they brag about it.

In a March 12 USA Today article, Mohammad Abdollahi, a 26-year-old illegal alien, tells reporters, “We realized that the more public we are with our stories, the safer we are,” referring to illegal aliens broadcasting their status. Shortly after Abdollahi advertised his, his lawyer received a call from immigration officials stating they were no longer pursuing his case.

Abdollahi, unfortunately, is just one of many examples of how the Administration continues to ignore U.S. immigration law, claiming that it is merely “prioritizing” its resources. Funny, the Administration did not seem to care about prioritizing its resources when it created a 24/7 hotline for illegal aliens, or created a new illegal alien advocate position within ICE.

    I too have had it with the illegals. This pandering government and the self serving religious establishment that wants these people in to help with the collection plate. Have all of these people gone mad, particularly this administrative
    and the democrats as a whole. They follow his wishes in lock step just like good boys. Where is the democrat that
    strays from the administration which was the case 10 years back. I have been fighting my senators and representative since 2005 on the problem of illegal entry into the country. The republicans are just as bad.
    I say everybody out of the pool in November.

    America as we once knew it is gone. We r now a weak, pathetic third world nation. Mexico has slowly invaded the United States and taken over many areas of this country. We have traitors in our government at all levels that have been instrumental in seeing that illegals get a free pass. Being an American citizen has lost its value and means nothing to all illegals. Citizenship has been cheapened and sold for votes. Our country has become and its citizens have become fat, lazy and stupid.

    Apathy has downloaded the United States into the immigration crisis and until this attitude is rectified, there is no hope of abolishing the greed and corruption on Capitol Hill..

    It was refreshing to read Art’s comment regarding the play on the words: immigrant and illegal alien. He is absolutely correct! These two types of people are descriptively light years apart. M. Lam continues with the frustration felt by all who have spent years complying with the federal laws to become citizens of this country, only to be insulted by the Administration handing free money, titles and above all, amnesty to people who disregard the process and cross our borders illegally! A slap in the face to those who dream of living in America and becoming productive citizens.

    Razaunida coined this little “ditty” and the media plays and replays it on a daily basis.
    Immigrants are the backbone of America, hence, the phrase, “melting pot” when describing America’s citizens.
    Illegal aliens are criminals, hence the description, illegal. Razaunida and the other hispanic radical groups are actually guilty of treason for they are aiding and abetting people from another country to destroy this nation’s freedom and our way of life.
    This group rants that the “illegal immigrants” are subjected to pathetic living environments and poor wages. They neglect to state the obvious: these people are not forced to cross our borders illegally, they make this decision of their own volition with complete knowledge of the ramifications.
    One must question: If Raza is so determined to create a united mexican race, why will they not return to their country of origin and alter the path of destiny within Mexico’s borders?

    America needs patriots. This nation is in Her death throes and unless we have the courage to fight for our heritage as a united people, then this great nation will continue in Her demise. Historically, every great nation has fallen and the United States of America is not immune to the impact of a lazy and apathetic people.
    Why do our military sacrifice to protect us when Congress and the Administration are handing America to Mexico without a fight?

    Again and again I reiterate: Amnesty will not produce a new breed of American patriots from the illegal alien masses. These people have no desire to become citizens of our country for they are acutely aware that this process will require them and their myriad family members to be responsible for their own welfare. Their existence in this country will radically change from that of parasitic to one of autonomy.
    Fact: Please ask an illegal alien is he/she wants to be an American. The solitary answer is always, “No, I live in America so I can send my money “home” to Mexico.”

    As for our country’s future: are we such cowards that we will continue living under the rule of corruption which has become the mainstay of our federal government?
    The solution is simple: we must clean house! 2012 must become the year of radical change. Every single member of Congress and the Administration must be voted out of office.
    We are losing our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness due to the illegal alien crisis. We cannot allow Mexico, via Razaunida, to continue to dictate our nation’s future.

    If Americans do not rally, we will awaken one morning to view the Mexican flag flying above the White House!
    Think about it.

    it’s almost not worth talking about any more the fed gov. is not going to do anything to enforce the laws of immigration we as a nation have given and continue to give to other nations that won’t provide for their own but we are being over run with our generosity and in the end if we do not put a stop to it this nation can not stand we have well over 13million illegals in this country they should be deported for economic reasons if they stay then you open the gates for others in their family we should put pressure on mexico to care for its’ own and close our borders at all cost.

    I’m so sick of the terminology “illegal immigrant”, as it’s an oxymoron. An immigrant is one that works within the immigration laws and waits until they are invited into our country. I’m also tired of those against illegal migrants being called “anti immigrant”.

    My wife is an immigrant that will soon be taking her citizenship test. She is from the Ukraine, she had to go through many hoops and expenses, and work within the visa quotas allocated to her home country.

    What really angers me is that it will end up taking about 7 years for her daughter to receive a visa, yet these illegal jerks come and go as they please without any wait.

    To me it’s a heads they win and tails we loose situation. I hate the liberals stand on illegal aliens, but at the same time I hate the conservatives anti worker policies. Guess I’ll vote for a third party.

    This really pisses me off. I came to the US “LEGALLY” with my parents when I was 15. I remember my parents had to spend a lot of money just to get our immegration status all squared away. On top of that, while the immegration status was being processed, as a student, I don’t have the rights as a regular US student (e.g. I am not allowed to apply for scolarship so I could help my parents). Now that I am applying for my wife, the process is not cheap. I spent about 6k already while jumping through all the application hoops and interviews. I expect to spend another 1.5k to finalize the process while worrying if those feds might need additional documents that I may have missed. I don’t have the extra money to hire a lawyer and I had to do this all by myself.

    I’ve read the USA Today article and it sounded to me Mohammad got a free ride. The least that the feds should do is make Mohammad to pay for fees to change his status and deport Mohammad’s parents. After all it’s Mohammad’s parent’s fault and I doubt Mohammad has any means or able to speak the local lanague in Iran.

    Reading this kind of story made me want to pass tougher laws for the “ILLEGALS” like Mohammad and Mohammad’s parents while making the process more friendlier (e.g. not needing a lawyer) for people like me who entered the US “LEGALLY”.

    I can see why as this administration is not doing their job. They are here causing trouble and taking our jobs.
    There is a right way to get citizenship, but they don’t feel they have to do that, and the legal latinos are sticking up for them. When they cross our borders, they are committing a crime and should be punished to the full extent of the law.

      President Obama made deals with the Presidents or Kings of the countries the illegals are from to send their workers here and the workers will send back their money to boost their economies. Yes, this is a two-fold endeaver: Votes and One Step Closer to a One World Order – No Borders- No Sovereignty – Poverty for everyone- How do you like this change?

    Of course they thumb their noses at our Laws, they are protected by unscrupulous, arrogant, and self-serving politicians .
    Obama, Napolitano and Holder will do anything to keep these “Future Voters” in our nation .
    They will keep the borders open, ignore our Laws, and handcuff our I.C.E. and Border Patrol Agents .
    Never mind that they have an adverse impact on our Medical, Educational, Welfare and all other public assistance programs meant for less fortunate Americans .
    Never mind that they over-populate our schools, effecting the Education of our children.
    Never mind they use and abuse our Medical facilities, at an enormous cost to us .
    Never mind the cost and demand they have on our Law Enforcement and Correctional facilities .
    Never mind that over 20 % of inmates in our Federal prisons are Non-Americans .
    Never mind, that since 2001, more Americans have been murdered by foreigners in our nation, than have died in Iraq, Afghanistan and on 9/11 COMBINED !
    It is time to turn the USS America around and put us back on tract, before the traitors in Washington sink us .

      You have the whole picture correct. It is time to deport ALL illegals and close our borders TIGHT!! We also don’t need to be supporting them in prison. Maybe if they land in prison, it should be at HARD LABOR! Make life in the U.S. not so nice for them. They may decide NOT to come here!
