A new week, a new crises.

Last week, it was an alleged army deserter. This week, we're telling everyone in Central America: "Y'all come, it's on us."

There is no doubt the economy and and the crime in Central America is a mess, but just how many more people can we process legally here? I said legally process from other country/

It's been alleged to media our country has ads on Central American websites telling people to move here. Attorney General Eric Holder wants to give free legal advice on rights for these folks we're inviting.

A Houston TV station reports a federal judge just said this country has chosen not to enforce our immigrations laws. Why not? Some see millions of new voters.

Misguided Eric Cantor is freaking out saying the time has come for an amnesty deal, at least for kids. This whole thing is is a mess.

They are flying and bussing immigrants back and forth from Texas to Arizona. It's a joke. They are telling some who came here "you are free to go and don't forget your hearing."

There will be no hearing. They are scattering all over the place.

If the president likes this idea so much, maybe New York City and Washington D.C. needs to be a processing center. The CDC is wary of diseases these folks may have coming over here. This is pure lawlessness.

Lawlessness.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

I never considered that a raise in the minimum wage to $20.00 per hour might help but I'm coming around to that train of thought. If we raised the minimum wage to $20.00 per hour and used and even improved e-verify, built the fence and stationed troops permanently to patrol the border with arrest powers and shoot to kill orders for anyone crossing that river, then go over each and every companies records with a fine tooth comb and deport all illegals, then we might have a solution.

You are stupid

You and I probably know the same Pilot who ended up owning a bail bond service and a used car lot in Palestine. Thanks for reminding me, I forgot about the Intentional Christmas raids but your correct. Now Pligrims Pride in Mt. Pleasant and JBS in Nacogodoches are the new Vernon Calhouns and now it is Vietnamese and Fillipano's in addition to the Mexicans and South Americans.

Interesting- all these illegals working away for American businesses and no American businessman is being investigated, fined, or imprisoned?
Has to be a reason why Pro Business heavily Republican Texas isn't doing anything about it.
Oh yeah, $Huge Profits$.
Enough to pay-off local, county, state & federal officials & still have enough left over to have nice cars,fancy homes & take vacations.
Illegals don't make enough so they qualify for SNAP, Medicaid, voucher, etc.
Middle-class Americans pay.

Don,
Again, you need to Prep H on your lips as your talking out you A$$$$ again. The republicans have been pushing the E-verify system in their platform every since it was invented. It has always been the democruts and Rhino's like McCain who kept it from going into effect. In Tyler, Texas, I personally know all the Rose growers who are against e-verify. Their interest like plants in Longview are self served. If they fired all the illegals, they would close their doors immediately.

Better watch the last Texas governors debate where your governor tea party backed rick illegal immigrant lover perry said that he would veto any legislation that mandated anyone to use the E-Verify system.

Dave,
I lived in Palestine back from the 60'until 2000. It is well known about Vernon Calhoun Packing and the thousands of Illegals who worked there. I grew up knowing Vernon Calhouns Pesonal Pilot. I know about how Immigration would raid the town and haul all the illegals back to Mexico and how Vernon Calhoun would have charted buses by the hundreds lined up across the border to haul them back to Palestine. They all knew what " La Migra" means and still do.

Lol Tex! Your absolutely right about Vernon. He would actually call La Migra on his own employees right before Christmas. To give them all a free ride home for the holidays. There were packs of Coyotes that would bring them all back each year after the holidays were over. I watched it go on for decades. Cornyn and the Canadian might not know how the game is played. But you and I obviously do. People should learn their history or be resolved to keep reliving it.

Hope for Change 2014 ....VOTE all of the illegal immigrant loving, POW hating, Veteran Hating and Military service men and women hating GOTP OUT 2014

Gregg Abbott is against MANDATED E-Verify just as Rick illegal immigrant lover Perry is. No jobs No illegals

Just Texas dave? Just Texas cops?

No INS, BP, ICE, U.S. Military?

No other states?

Personally, due to the amount of drugs that actually make the streets (except meth), I'd say there is some corruption at every level. And the corruption has to be at higher levels in the organization in order to get so much across. Most cops are honest, but it takes just a few at the top levels to make sure no one is there when the dope is smuggled across.

Your absolutely right Deaf. It is a nation wide problem. I can only speculate about the rest of the country. I know what I've seen and experienced here in Texas. Too bad that Cornyn and the Canadian don't know. They probably don't teach Texas history in Canada though. So I should probably give the kid a break.

I think law enforcement here in Texas is on the pad. Not only do employers bribe them to look the other way when they pick up illegals. They've been standing on the corner here for 50 years. The drug cartels bribe them to ignore drug shipments too. It's nothing new. The Maceo brothers operated illegal gambling in the Balinese Room in Galveston for decades. And Benny Binion ran gambling and booze in Dallas until he moved to Vegas.

"If it's Lawlessness why aren't the Repubs & T-Baggers yelping?"

They are idiot. AND THEY VOTE. They will yelp alot when the ballots are due!

In fact a real lot of 'em will vote along with Veterans, along with the unemployed and underemployed.

It is not wither both houses will be Republican, it's only a question of how many seats will they take.

Deaf,
I also lived in South Texas so I know a lot about Hispanics and a lot about illegal immigration, having not only witnessed it first hand but I have dealt with many illegals as well. As far as Texas patriots you mentioned a large number and I agree with you fully. My family was at San Jacinto, later at the Battle of the Neches and also one of the founding families of Wood County. Ever hear of the Old Settlers Reunion in Quitman. It is the members of my family that were honored.

Where are the investigations & impeachment threats?
Why aren't the same Repubs & T-Partiers investigating Big Business?
The ones making Big Profits!
Hell will freeze over before that happens.
Watch American Greed show
That's Corporate Greed uncovered.
No jobs for illegals= no illegals= no problems.
It started with migrant workers and grew from there.
Can't have it both ways
Get rid of them & pay more for food
Either way we're paying.

My family also fought in the Texas Revolution and I have nothing against Hispanics who came here legally. I also realize that many Hispanics fought for Texas and in all the wars the United States has fought. I am not talking about legal immigrants as all of us that are not native American are immigrants. My family has fought in every war from Texas Independence to Iraq and Afganistan. I'm talking about illegal immigrants. I'm not un-sympathic to their problems, it is just we have plenty.

Well Cowboy here is were we part views.

Now my handle, Deaf Smith, is named after THE Deaf Smith who fought in our war of independence from Mexico. But Deaf was not alone.

There were many Mexicans who fought with us. Of the 189 men who died at the Alamo six were Spanish. Juan Abamillo, Juan A. Badillo, Carlos Espalier, Gregorio Esparza, Antonio Fuentes, and Andrés Nava. And remember Juan Seguín and José Navarro who fought!

No, Texas is not just for whites. But it's not for illegals either.

ALLEDGED!
you use qualifiers for your MISINFORMATION.
PROOF!
It's not hard for the head of the ketk NEWS dept to google on the internet & get the FACTS.
You google & find rag blogs supporting your wacky positions - where's your PROOF from somewhere in Central & S America?
How many have computers let alone internet service to find these ads?
FACT: No Jobs = No Illegals.
Are US companies placing the "ads"?
White Collar Crime is killing the American Dream for Americans.
White Collar Crime= JAIL!

Town, it is perfectly legal to bring people into the country on a temporary visa. All an employer has to do is place an help wanted ad in a local paper and TWC. If the employer doesn't get enough replies from the local area. They can place an ad overseas to fill the empty positions. There is a screwed up perception about this. Here in Palestine illegals have stood on the same corner downtown for 50 years. They don't work for less than $10 an hour. That's the minimum wage set by the local market.

Lawlessness...

Benghazi...
IRS scEandal...
ATF Fast&Furious scandal...
DOJ Voting scandal...
Terrorist trade...

And the list just keeps getting bigger and bigger...

Hope for change in 2014. Can't vote Obama out so vote all Democrats out to put the brakes on Obama's lawlessness.

This my opinion of Illegal Immigration period. I know I'm an admitted proud white racists. I make no apologies for that what ever. This is my country and my native state. It does not belong to Illegal Criminals, period. Illegal means criminal!!. Does not matter if it is a new born baby or a 100 year old person. They are both criminals when they cross any border illegally which brands them a criminal. Now we are supposed to feed, clothe, educate and provide free college tutition. Bull.

Okay, this is one I must blame the last several POTUS's.(POTUSi?) Odummer is just the latest to not take any real action or acting to aggravate the problem. Reagan gave amnesty and it didn't end it, Bush signed into law allowing Mexican nationals living in Mexico to get U.S. food stamps and Obama added to the program. So NO, this is not stupid's fault. It's just on his shoulders now because he's been POTUS more than long enough to have effected some real answers, but hasn't.

States that catch BP or INS or ICE people dumping children should arrest them for CHILD ABANDONMENT and CHILD ABUSE. Yes any federal agent that does this should be in jail. It's criminal and against virtually ever state's laws!

Who do blame? Obama! He is ordering all this.

Hope for change in 2014. We can't vote out Obama... but we CAN vote out Democrats to show our displeasure with this Administration. And with a SUPER MAJORITY we can IMPEACH Obama and/or Holder.

No one is above the law!
