Majority of U.S. Congress members ignore the will of the American people on illegal-alien migration into U.S.

Considering power and politics first, a majority of U.S. Congress members fly in the face of the expressed will of the American people who have clearly stated that they want illegal-alien migration stopped and our borders protected.

Many of those Americans have lost jobs or cannot find work because U.S. employers are hiring illegal-aliens, in violation of U.S. labor laws that are not being enforced, because they can pay them less and provide no benefits.

American citizens have legitimate concerns about preservation of our culture, maintaining our security and sovereignty, protecting our public systems, and stopping the loss of American jobs to illegal-aliens and the ensuing economic drain on our economic system.

There is a multi-billion dollar economic drain on our economy that serves to prop up the Mexican government and its economy---in a time of ballooning U.S. deficits and financing the War Against Terrorism. Americans have not voted to allow that economic drain or to leave our borders and our security wide open and vulnerable to all comers---even terrorists.

We now need to give serious consideration to voting with our feet---to remove all the members of Congress who choose their own political careers and financial interests above that of the people they were elected to represent.

If these tin-ear Congress-members are not willing to vote our best interests and the best interests of the United States of America, they need to go---no matter their political party. Our elections are not for the purpose of electing the craftiest, self-serving politicians. With regard to the illegal-alien flood, drugs and humans trafficking, and draining the U.S. economy and public service systems dry, a majority of Congress members---particularly in the U.S. Senate---are voting their own interests to maintain their power and lifetime jobs in Congress.

It's easier for the Senators to get away with this, because they have 6 year terms, instead of the 2 year terms for House of Representatives members. Maybe term limits would help eliminate the concentrations of power and influence that enable long-term Senators to operate as political obstructionists rather than as servants of the people who elected them. Robert Byrd, Teddy Kennedy, John Kerry and John McCain come to mind.

Being a member of Congress is supposed to be a service to this country and its citizens---not service to Congress-members themselves and to parasitic countries that disrespect and encourage violation of our laws in order to fleece the American people.

Now we find that Spanish media were behind the huge pro-illegal-alien protest rallies over the past few days. We have seen protesters flying their Mexican flags here in our own country. And we know the aspirations of many of those Mexican illegal-aliens---and other Mexican nationals who attained a previous U.S. amnesty---to establish "Aztlan" in many of our southern border states to re-claim those areas for Mexico. Read "Spanish Media Organized Nationwide Mass Protests" at cbs2, for more information about those organized protests. Also at newsmax, which includes the following: "For English-speaking America, the mass protests in Los Angeles and other U.S. cities over the past few days have been surprising for their size and seeming spontaneity. But they were organized, promoted or publicized for weeks by Spanish-language radio hosts and TV anchors as a demonstration of Hispanic pride and power...."

An earlier protest of the existence of an inscription on a Baldwin, California monument can be read about---and monument viewed--- in PelicanPost postings of 29 May 2005, which included the following:

"California, with the most Mexican immigrants in the United States, is quickly becoming a focal point for racial tension and the attainment of political power as well as Arizona. New Mexico and Texas are not far behind.... With such militant and hate-filled groups as MECha, and the The National Council of La Raza ("For the Race everything, for those outside the Race, nothing"), fomenting racial divisions and the “Pushing Out of Whitey,” the battleground is being set for a future clash that could get out of control. It’s not a matter of racism to want to protect your home...."

The inscription on the monument read: "This land was Mexican once, was Indian always, and is, And will be again...." by Gloria Anzaldua.

So..., just what is it about handing over and selling out Americans and our national security and sovereignty that so many members of the U.S. Congress don't understand??

"Mexican illegals vs. American voters"

"It is lucky America has more than two centuries of mostly calm experience with self-government. We are going to need to fall back on that invaluable patrimony if the immigration debate continues as it has started this season.

The Senate is attempting to legislate into the teeth of the will of the American public. The Senate Judiciary Committeemen — and probably a majority of the Senate — are convinced that they know that the American people don't know what is best for them.

National polling data could not be more emphatic — and has been so for decades. Gallup Poll (March 27) finds 80 percent of the public wants the federal government to get tougher on illegal immigration. A Quinnipiac University Poll (March 3) finds 62 percent oppose making it easier for illegals to become citizens (72 percent in that poll don't even want illegals to be permitted to have driver's licenses). Time Magazine's recent poll (Jan. 24-26) found 75 percent favor "major penalties" on employers of illegals, 70 percent believe illegals increase the likelihood of terrorism and 57 percent would use military force at the Mexican-American border.

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll (March 10-13) found 59 percent opposing a guest-worker proposal, and 71 percent would more likely vote for a congressional candidate who would tighten immigration controls. An IQ Research poll (March 10) found 92 percent saying that securing the U.S. border should be a top priority of the White House and Congress.

Yet, according to a National Journal survey of Congress, 73 percent of Republican and 77 percent of Democratic congressmen and senators say they would support guest-worker legislation...."
