Supporters of comprehensive immigration reform staged a press conference in Longview on Monday calling on voters to urge Congress to back a plan that’s already considered D.O.A. when the House of Representatives returns from vacation in September.

“We stand here in Longview, today, knowing there are people being treated as second-class families,” Longview NAACP President Branden Johnson told some 25 people outside the Longview Public Library. “We ask those of you who are willing to join us in the fight for reform.”

Monday’s event was one of many planned in Congressional Districts represented by Republicans which were announced last week by U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio and other reform backers.

Yea, we need reform alright, we need to roundup 11 million illegals and all the members of the NAACP and deport them all.

Another thought. I remember those instances when the "illegals" were marching through our streets waving the Mexican flag and burning ours! How they can expect us to change our Immigration Laws after that, is beyond me. Further, everywhere that I've gone where there was a large concentration of "illegals", the crime rate was out of sight! These people are not the kind of element that will improve our country. More likely, they'll just bleed it dry!

If "illegals" want to live in this country, they need to go through the normal immigration process. Instead they choose to sneak into our country and not ask for but, demand equal rights! They have no rights here, they're invaders. I think what we need to reform is when children are born on U.S. soil, that doesn't automatically make them Americans. We're only encouraging the "illegals" to sneak across the border and drop their litters here. The next thing you know is their collecting SS!
