Did you know that registered members of NumbersUSA can now add their own comments to our blog entries? True! It's easy, and I'll show you how to do it. (For those who've never registered, you'll need to do so before you can add your comments.)

Hundreds of members have already discovered that they can read comments by other members at the bottom of blog entries (like this one). Registered members can also speak back to the blog writer and readers alike by posting their own reactions to the blog. Commenting is a great new way to interact with your fellow NumbersUSA members.

Members have been able to write their own faxes on NumbersUSA for years, but this is the first time they've had a way to talk with each other. Want to speak back? Here's your chance!

Just a few ground rules. First, please keep your comments relevant to the blog topic you are commenting on. Second, remember to log into the site so you can post.

Join the fray! And enjoy reading over some of the hundreds of comments already added to existing blog entries. It's fun.

New to commenting on blogs? Let me suggest a few obvious things in the blog above a member might comment upon. 1. How easy (or hard!) you found it to add your comments. 2. Questions about the instructions. 3. Maybe you've enjoyed the comments you've already read posted after the blog entries. 4. How do I register, or how do I find my username or password? 5.

I am a faithful member of NumbersUSA. I send all the faxes and believe in its message. However, I also know a lot of people who have given up on Florida for their retirement and are now living in Central America. I wholeheartedly oppose immigration, both legal and illegal, as well as visas and all the other privileges such as welfare, anchor babies, in-state tuition, etc., etc., etc. However, I would very much like to leave the door open to any Mexican Province and Central American nation that wishes to apply for statehood. I am opposed to immigration, but I am not opposed to expanding the U.S. In small Central American nations, we can easily have a reciprocal relationship following the example of Florida, with our retirees migrating to their new statehood and their citizens easily absorbed as low income unskilled labor here. Immigration (legal or illegal) is a lose-lose for the U.S. in my opinion. However, at least with statehood, the U.S. would gain something in exchange for what we are offering.

I love this comment site! Since Title 8 Section 1324 of the United States Code States aiding, abetting, harboring, encouraging, and hiring illegals is a felony. We the people have a little known or seldom used law the American taxpayers should start using. It's the RICO Statues (or citizens recourse). Private persons and entities may initiate civil suits to obtain injunctions and treble damages against enterprises that conspire to or actually violate federal alien smuggling, harboring, or document fraud statues, under the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO). The pattern of racketeering activity is defined as commission of two or more of listed crimes. A RICO enterprise can be any individual legal entity,or a group of individuals who are not a legal entity but are associated in fact and can include nonprofit organizations.

I am a believer of Numbers USA. I send all the faxes posted on my cork board. I extremely feel that it is past time to enforce all the immigration laws that we already have now. No anchor babies, this is just one of the the dumbest things our country has ever done. Punish the employers of illegals, close all the borders until we get back to a normal flow that we can financially support, put the military on all the borders, and stop all the tax payer funded benefits to all illegals. Stop the funding contributed to La Raza who is undermining our culture.

I read an online article in the 7/11/08 New York Times by S. Freedman that got my dander up. He sided with the nearly 400 illegal aliens arrested in a raid in Iowa on 5/12/08. He also moaned about the effect that it had on the lawbreakers' families that sought, and got, sanctuary in a nearby church. He praised a Priest that came out of retirement in another state to return to his former parish and aid those families, also mainly illegals, by helping them break the law. He goes on to praise the greater good that these families contribute to the country that is now unfairly persecuting them. As I said, the more I read, the redder I got. I fired off a few of my thoughts to him via the following E-mail address: sgfreedman@nytimes.com Start of message--- Like many other legal Americans that believe in the rule of law, you'll have to pardon me if your tear-jerking article on the plight of illegal invaders in Iowa didn't cause me to be saddened. Actually it elated me to read that these lawbreakers were finally being held somewhat accountable for the disruption they are causing in my country. Personally, I hope that the parish officials that are aiding and abetting the illegal lawbreakers are held accountable for their crimes against America. I pray that the illegals all sneak out of America at the same, or quicker, pace that they sneaked in. End of message--- If you Blogees feel the need for a good cry, you can read his article by copying and pasting the following url into your browser:http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/12/us/12religion.html?_r=1&oref=slogin Press "Go" and mayhaps have a box of Kleenex handy.

Illegal immigration is the scourge of our country. I was raised in San Bernardino, California, and the flood across the border into CA after 1965 drastically changed the whole state. The state of CA teeters on bankruptcty from the incredible cost of supporting people who use social services at a much greater rate than they contribute to them. I am urging my representatives (in Indiana) to introduce legislation like GA, OK, MO, and AZ to make it uncomfortable for illegal aliens and their employers. If we all join together to push this kind of legislation on our representatives, our government will begin the get the clue that the American people do not want mass immigration into our country. Put as much pressure as possible on the Presidential candidate of your choice to let them know that your support of their campaign is heavily influenced by their stance on immigration. I with to extend great thanks to NumbersUSA fo pulling us all together in this important cause and giving us a united voice. Roy Beck is an American hero.

Hello All, I am happy to be a part of this movement to crack down on the ever growing illegal immigration problems. It is about time. In response to the intelligent comments previously posted about the raid in Iowa and the illegals who found sanctuary in the Church along with their families, I am just wondering how many of these family members are reported to the welfare department. In many cases, these families claim to be seperated at the welfare office or whenever it is convenient. I live in California and the birth rate of babies born to illegal "single" mothers is astounding, although very secretive. My husband works at the county hospital and I work at the welfare department, so no one is fooling us. There is too much opportunity for the "undocs" to have it their way within all of the government systems and there are too many double standards that benefits illegals to the detriment of citizens and legal residents. Where Americans or legal residents are required to provide verification of the facts they report to receive public assistance, the word of illegals is taken when they claim they have no documents. Additionally, any time an American or legal resident collects welfare benefits claiming an absent parent (usually the father), the District Attorney's office immediately opens a child support case and aggressively goes after the absent parent to repay the benefits collected on behalf of his child. Also parents who get their children back from the foster care system must pay back the system via a percentage of their income, the same goes for a child's stay in Juvenile Hall. Anytime Americans or legal residents receive services from the county hospital or a public defender, they must pay a percentage of their income for those services rendered. Do we really believe the illegals are being held accountable in this way? How exactly are government agencies supposed to calculate actual household income, household composition, assets, or the true identity of the parents of the aided children are when illegals are using fraudulent documents regarding their identity? This allows continual fraud because the illegals are not repaying these services, (as the Americans are forced to do) even though the illegals in fact have income that is not being reported to the government.

I have been a faithful NumbersUSA activist for years, having taken actions posted to my corkboard 498 times to date. I want to reverse illegal immigration, to cause every illegal invader to self deport, and I want legal immigration limited to numbers that will not increase foreign competition with U.S. citizens for jobs or see the population increase. Our tax pool, our infrastructure, our resources are stretched to the limit and we simply do not have the feasible ability to keep adding to the population or increasing the tax liability upon the law abiding citizenry. I am a bilingual (working on trilingual) native born U.S. citizen who has visited a number of foreign countries, respecting the laws of each nation I visit, including the laws governing IMMIGRATION, VISITATION BY FOREIGN NATIONALS, AND EMPLOYMENT. I have immersed myself in the cultures of the nations I have visited and never demonstrated in the streets demanding rights and privileges to which I am not entitled. My wife is a trilingual first generation immigrant, she came to this country legally, she jumped through every hoop, adhered to every legal requirement, she has assilated into U.S. culture without abandoning that of her native Brazil, and she speaks English better than many who were born and have lived their entire live in the United States. My advice to the rest of the world is to respect our laws, wait your turn, and stop expecting a handout. Expecting the law to be obeyed is not racist, it is the bedrock of civilization. If you don't want to obey the laws of my nation, stay out because I am part of an ongoing and growing movement to evict invaders.

Hi. First, I am a new member and just want to thank you for this wonderful site- instead of feeling helpless, I can make my voice heard. Thank you again! Just wanted to share something I got recently- as a Real Estate Broker in NJ our industry has undergone tremendous changes that have created a volatile and unstable market that influences many, if not all, of the US- the current housing mess has created a need for rentals- and in re: rentals and Illegal Immigration- this is an email that I received 7/12/2008 from The New Jersey Association of Realtors-NJAR "NJAR® Monitoring Rental Housing and Illegal Immigration NJAR® has attended several local governing body meetings where resolutions/ordinances were discussed that would set a municipal policy that requires landlords to obtain proof that their tenants are legal residents of the United States. A similar ordinance that was adopted in Hazleton, Pa. was overturned by the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania on grounds that the ordinance violated the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution and due process protections under the 14th Amendment. Following that court decision, Riverside, N.J. repealed its ordinance. NJAR® will be following this issue closely in municipalities across the state. If you hear about a similar proposal in your municipality, please contact your local board/association." If anyone has any further information on this issue, I would appreciate hearing about their thoughts. Thank you

Sean Of La- as to the new movie that is pro-illegal. For some reason Hollywood is completely open borders and for illegals, maybe because they feel they are an elite group that will never be displaced by Illegal aliens. We can no more expect Hollywood to deal with reality then we can expect the major corporations to not be traitors. Oregon is so corrupt and filled with illegals that I dont know where to begin. I report and nothing happens. The address for Oregon is Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Attn: investigations 511 Ne Broadway Portland Oregon 97209 . Last May 2007, when we were fighting that horrible Reid Amnesty, I place a handmade sign on my car window that read: No Amnesty Call Senate Now!! 1 202 2222222 for this the property managers placed a letter on my door informing me that it was against corporate policy to have political signs on Cars. I ended up having to get a lawyer and fighting numerous retaliatory evictions. . It was truly a nightmare. I now feel that I have no free speech and that I will be attacked for speaking out at all about the Invasion and in Oregon it is an invasion. what I think people should know is we have to speak out, but those for open borders play dirty, so watch your back at all times. Note that Tom wenning , was arrest by Mayor tom potter at his illegal day labor site,last month in Portland ,but no illegal aliens were ! That sums up Portland.

The open borders, and rampant illegal immigration problem is destroying the nation. The immigrants are breaking the laws of our country, not speaking english, learning the customs, and many have intentions on changing rather than assimiliating. I see it everywhere I go in town. As a veteran, and patriot, I am even more disgusted with washington politics, and President Bush. He has done nothing to secure the border, has jailed federal agents for doing their jobs, and I feel he has been a pathetic commander in chief. He should be remembered for his legacy, the worst president in american history. It is even more concerning to see the choice of candidates for the next election. Both cater to the open borders, crowd, one is a "Free Trader" or NAFTA supporter thats decimated our middleclass. I am very frustrated with the state of affairs of this country.

Usually retired academic are stereotyped as ultra left-wing, however this is not my affiliation. Just like Lou Dobbs I'm a Independent (populist) and I couldn't be more proud, when checking responses to my comments. An individual announced me as Dobbicus. That being the end part of my user name 'Brittanicus' I have been an American patriot since I arrived in America, from England in the early 80's. I once protested outside the Federal building in downtown Los Angeles, and received a frozen soda can in my face. After that harassment I left the demonstrations over illegal immigration occupation to less faint-of -heart. Today the Internet is my pen and voice, and I have accumulated over the last five years, hundreds of free accounts in the nation press, blogs, forums and message boards. Everywhere that I can sing the praises (so-to-speak) of Numbersusa. You will find me commentary in the New York times, Nashua Telegraph, LA Times, Oregonian, Missourian and everywhere else that I can find a niche. My message always referees to Numbersusa regarding where to find unsuppressed facts about the Federal SAVE ACT (H.R.4088), Democratic refusal to sponsor. Overpopulation, globalist agenda to promote the free movement of cheap labor throughout the North American Continent. OBama, McCains blanket AMNESTY in the November election. Democrats gutting the border fence funding and much more. Always they have Numbersusa to refer too. This is the most important addition to all my commentaries. I hate to think without access to the Internet, where we would be regarding AMNESTY.

BORDER GUARDS STILL IN PRISON; What ever happened to separation of powers? I really believe that our border guards are still incarcerated because the majority of Congress is in the pockets of the Drug Cartels. This is evidenced by the fact that so many have failed to sign the petition to release them. President Bush has ignored them from day one and is pushing the burden on the judicial to make the decision. So why is the judicial failing to make a ruling after they were presented with evidence that was witheld by Sutton and the Judge? Is it because President Bush will look bad or that he demanded the Appeals Court to hold off on the ruling? I also believe that this could be a conspiracy against the border guards and against the "sovereign government of America". Drugs are still flowing in over the border and our legislative and executive branches of government are ignoring the problem. They seem to be content with all of these drugs coming in, to me that is a sure sign of being on the take. And that is an act of Bribery and that is against the Honest intent of the Constitution of the United States of America. President Bush and Congress are both failing to protect Americans from drug dealers and have failed to seal the border to stop the drugs from coming in. That is another violation of the Constitution. Johnny Sutton and the Judge are not only in violation of the rights of the Border Guards, they are also in violation of their "Oath of Office pledge and the Constitution." It is time for the appeals court to release the border guards and put the true violators in prison. In the same cell as Davila. ========================================================== RESPONSE FROM JIM ROBB, NUMBERSUSA VP, OPERATIONS: Charlie, I think your idea of Congress somehow being secretly controlled by criminals is far-fetched and counterproductive to our cause. There's no need to look for secret reasons. The real reasons are pretty obvious. 1) Inertia is the most powerful force in Washington. It takes incredible willpower for anything to change here. 2) Big business wants cheap labor, and that requires, they believe, lax borders. Lax borders lead to crime coming in from the outside.

I am so glad we have Steve King on our side of illegal immigration and other issues. He has the guts to stand up and fight for us and our jobs while the others whimp out and give into party pressure. Three cheers for Steve King and what he has done for us. I hope many of our residents of Iowa will help get rid of Tom Harkin for his support of illegal immigration and amnesty he want's for them. I personally can't comprehend why he wants amnesty for all the illegals along with almost most Democrates we have in office now. I am so am very diappointed in our other state officials who want amnesty. When I go into a store in my town and feel like I am in a foreign country because no one but the check out speaks English and a lot of them have very bad broken English it toltally disgusts me. The police in my town also won't let American Citzens demonstrate against illegals but they will let illegals demonstrate against the American Citizen. There is something really wrong when we can't state our opinions without being called bigots because they are in my and your country illegally. We have laws, that says they have no rights. They are not legal citizens because they did not go through proper channels to get here. Totally unfair to us.

BORDER GUARDS COMPEAN AND RAMOS: Are those who failed to sign the petition to release the Border Guards, in the pocket of the Drug Cartels? The evidence points to them accepting a payoff. The continued incarceration of two men who were protecting the children of America. Is President Bush also getting paid off by the Drug Cartels for failing to prosecute their Drug Dealer? Why is it taking so long for the courts to decide on the new evidence? Isn't it obvious that Compean and Ramos were not given a fair trial? Whenever, any prosecutor or judge fails to present or allow evidence that has to be a violation of the rights of the accused. I believe Sutton and the Judge and Congress get ready to dig deep in their pockets to compensate these men. They were doing their job, and I believe the stupid law that Sutton used, is unconstitutional. Especially when the Border Guards were doing their job.

Jim Robb: Thanks for the info on my blog about Congress's failure to help release the border guards. I agree with you to a point. I also believe that sometimes our elected need a shock treatment. When there is a chance that evidence was tainted or was never made available. The elected/appointed should take action and release these servants of the people who were doing their job for Americans and America. To do as they are, "Nothing" points the finger of corruption at them. I would have joined the fight to keep them out of prison. "We the People" should not have to put pressure on our elected officials.

I am an immigrant, LEGAL that is, turned citizen and I feel that someone should be IMPEACHED for the illegals invasion that we have had. Someone is looking the other way while knowingly allowing this CRIMINAL illegal invasion of our country to go on. How can we prosecute business owners for hiring illegals and NOT prosecute those (the Federal Gov't) that allowed them to come here and stay illegally? Those in charge that keep allowing the criminal act to go on need to be prosecuted ALSO. Please STAND UP for our country, culture, way of life and the rule of law. Congress taxes and wastes so much money and time passing laws for WHAT? Laws are made to be enforced on EVERYONE not just on citizens. DEPORTATION unites families and keeps children and people from the dangers of crossing a border and living illegally. There is a right way to come to USA, LEGALLY like most people that Respect our country. DEPORTATION makes everyone documented and LEGAL (back home). I find offensive this offer (MCCain/Kennedy/Bush) of PAID AMNESTY, while those (around 5,000,000) waiting to come here legally can't because someone cut in line and took their spot in the USA. It is a shame that American citizens can't bring their foreign spouses to USA but illegals have the full support of liberals to come and stay. The same liberals that tout the President's low rating and theirs are shamefully WORSE. The same liberals that since taking a majority in Congress the country has taken a nose dive. Take responsibility and do the responsible thing for AMERICA and it's citizens. ACT NOW or I will ACT to VOTE YOU OUT. Thanks.

Hello NumbersUSA co-members, this is a wonderful opportunity for our voices to be heard. But what about action? I agree with Bonita1594 of TN that employers should be held responsible, but what about sanctuary cities. If there is an attorney out there that wants to put together a class action suite again the city of San Francisco, for instance, you can count on my backing. It's time we got off our duffs and did the work ourselves, since our elected officials refuse to do the peoples work. Stop the invasion of our country. :) Patricia living in Mexifornia.

NumbersUSA is not only the gold standard for addressing the immigration issue, but also for providing the tools that allow constituents to let their Congressmen know their collective will on any issue. It is the most important tool extant for saving the future of this great nation by preventing Congress from ignoring the will of the people by putting their positions at peril if they do. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for I have great fear for the future of our country. I believe the internet is the only vehicle left for the average citizen to make his voice heard to Congressmen. Otherwise, we are all ignored. Your organization was the first I am aware of, and certainly the most successful, at providing this new power for the people to be heard. Any attempt to curtail communication with our elected officials should become the highest priority of everyone. Although you have not dicussed it publicly, I "read between the lines" that NumbersUSA has already had to deal with threats to its effectiveness form limitations imposed by Congress to curtail your activities. The more effective you are, the greater the threat will be for you to be hampered, if not stopped, from providing this great service for your country. I also support other politically oriented internet organizations and have been urging them to use your tools to remind all Congressmen about the will of their constituents on all issues. I hope you believe that immitation is the highest form of flattery, and will not mind my urging other organizations to use this power for the benefit of us all, no matter the issue. I will end with one question, which was my original intent. Why are you not providing the names of all Congressmen, by state, who have not signed the discharge petition for the SAVE act? Do they not deserve the same attention from you, and consequently us, that you have provided on the other issues as they have arisen? ======================================================== NUSA - We have that information on our site: http://www.numbersusa.com/content/news/june-26-2008/rep-johnson-illinois... ======================================================== Thank you for all that you have done, and will do, on this issue. I am spreading the word about you to as many people as I can contact, whether in person or on the internet. May God bless you for your work, as he will, hopefully, continue to bless America.

We need ICE to put more pressure on santuary cities. We also need to put more pressure on government to enforce laws on books allready. We need to fine companies that hire illegals and a way to verify someones legal status. Lets fight and take back our country.

Hi everyone..I am glad to be here to share some very interesting news with you. I have a friend in the clothing industry who was audited due to our Immigration Ordinance in Beaufort county of SC. They found four employees whom were illegal aliens and had social security numbers which made them 2 yrs old. Come to find out they were using their U.S. born children's SS numbers and shared with their family members as well. It is very important that you check on you and your loved ones..alive or dead ..social security #'s because they are finding out in other western states that people are selling citizens I.D.s to get jobs and loans. And if you find this out to late it will cost thousands of dollars to get your idenity back.

I am extremely concerned we will not get enough signatures to get the Save Act onto the floor for a vote. I've been on my Rep, Charlie Gonzalez (D-Tx 20th) & would like to share my last post to him. Sorry for the length, but had to get it said. Thank you for your July 14th e-mail advising why you haven't signed the Save Act discharge petition. As I understand, you are unconvinced about its efficacy, notoriously unreliable E-Verify system & your HR-2271 bill. Let's look at each of these: 1. EFFICACY -- the desired effect. I understand the discharge petition is merely to get it to the floor for an up or down vote, nothing more. Am I right? 2. UNRELIABLE E-VERIFY SYSTEM -- Looking at the USCIS web site under E-Verify, it says "99.5% of all work authorized employees queried through E-Verify were verified without receiving a tentative non confirmation or having to take any type of corrective action." It further states, "the E-Verify programs infrastructure is capable of handling the volume of queries that would be necessary for a nationwide mandatory employment verification system." In addition to USCIS' opinion, Jessica M. Vaughan, Senior Policy Analyst, Center for Immigration Studies in D.C. gave testimony before the R.I. Senate Comm. on May 14, 2008 stating, "it works, its easy to use, & most importantly, 98% of eligible workers are confirmed to work instantaneously." She also said "fewer than 1% of eligible workers need to update their records to be confirmed." Now that's pretty darn good in my books, so why would anyone say 99.5% & 98%, from reliable sources, be "notoriously unreliable?" What is your source? Heck, even Congress is only receiving between a 9% & 14% approval rating depending on the poll you look at. 3. HR-2271 - I'm not a lawyer, just a concerned citizen, so I pulled HR-2271 up & read it several times, but for the life of me don't see how it pertains to mandating using E-Verify or your stated concerns. As you well know, there are millions of non citizens wandering our country costing taxpayers billions of dollars, lives, thefts, gangs, property damage, etc. each year. I have heard members are being held hostage in order to placate to special interests & hoping to allow it to run out at the end of Nov. Don't know whether that's true or not, but if so, its not a way to run our country & solve problems. Our Republic says the majority rules, so if Save passes, okay, if not, try again but give it a fair hearing by bringing it to the floor for an up or down vote. One would think after concerned citizens shut down the switchboard last year there would be no doubt that the majority of Americans want & demand our borders & ports be secured with NO type amnesty. Americans must always have first refusal of jobs with reasonable American, livable wages. No cheap, slave wages & employers must adhere to all our labor rules & regulations. The burden of proof must be laid at the employers feet, but CONGRESS must supply them the necessary tools. It can be done, officials just need the political will & it doesn't take 1800 - 2000 pages that very few members read or understand before voting. Using the KISS method,-- you know,-- keep it simple, stupid, it could probably be accomplished with just 2 sheets of 8-1/2 x 11 paper, typed. As someone once said, lead, follow or get out of the way. I believe JFK summed it up pretty well, "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what YOU can do for your country." Allowing a legitimate bill to come to the floor for an up or down vote does not mean it will become law, but it is the Constitutional & American way. Holding members hostage is totally unamerican and unacceptable. I guess my question to you is what are YOU going to do for your country? Will you stand up for what is right for her? Perhaps hide under your desk hoping it will just go away or time will run out? ----Don't bet the farm on it. What say you? Folks, remember Congress is only scheduled to work 27 days between today, 7-23 & 11-4. If we don't re-ignite the fire in our belly, write, fax, call & keep the pressure on, the Dems will allow the Save Act to die at the end of Nov. Is that what you want? I hope not. Let's get'er done!!!!!

This new system is efficient and a wonderful improvement. I'm impessed. When I receive your e-mail's I always forward them on to others on my mailing list. I have no idea who many of those folks have registered with you but I do know that a lot of them really took exception to McCain-Kennedy and raised a lot of sand. You folks do wonderful work and have caused me to write personal letters to my representatives - Bill Nelson (Fl) and Martinez (Fl) both of which need a lot of education. One is a liberal and the other is an Cuban immigrant who has little understanding for Anglo-Saxon values, laws and the reasons that make America last best hope for manking. I make sure to copy Ciff Stearns who rates an "A" on this and every other list I've seen. Anyway, thanks for keeping everyone informed.

Just a reminder, that if our representatives (sic) don't hear us when we fax them, make sure they hear us when we vote (fire them).

our congress in an effort to show bipartiship is another try at futility. there is no conservatism. bipartism is another name for liberal. that is why the rating of congress as a whole is so low. the old axiom of you can please some of the people some of the time and all of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time is oh so true. but today's congress has such an ego that they think they can please all the people all the time ergo the rating is low no matter what. they think pork barrel is the way to appease the constintuancy.they must have God and the people first in their mind. they cannot/must not try to bribe the people with pork barrel and say look what i did for you/ how great i am.

On July 15th, I posted that here in Galveston, we had ICE bust some ILLEGAL ALIENS. One report was that ICE telephoned a Greek Restaurant on the Seawall and warned the owner they were coming! He sent his Illegals home FOR THE DAY. Our local newspaper The Galveston County Daily News has not WRITTEN ONE WORD ABOUT THE BUST!!! I and several others called several times and got the run around. I think that stinks!!!!!!!!!!

Congressional Offices In addition to sending faxes I regularly phone the offices of many, many Senators & Representatives about the illegal aliens in our country stealing from American citizens....it never seems to fail that what ever bill I am calling about the clerks in the congressional offices never have a clue as to the position of the member they represent - with the exception of Burgess (R-TX) I have started asking each one of them if they never communicate or just why their response is always...I'm sorry, the (member) has not told us his position.... ....but then I'm just a "typical blue-collar, white person" so why should I expect my opinions to be counted?
