I just got an email today from my sister in law in Plano, Texas. My brother in law just received his lay off notice from Phillips. How many more jobs are going to go!! I am so angry with this administration and the previous one too!!

We can not allow this administration to bully us, take our jobs, and import thousands of foreign workers. These people are most definitely unamerican and should all be fired. Iris

For God's sake...we are not talking about immigration. Immigration is an orderly, lawful way for people who "want to become Americans" to enter our country. This is about an unlawful travesty over our southern border. Our government needs to wake-up! Help

This isn't immigration it's an invasion and it has been going on for 20 yrs. The illegals sneak in, they don't like their own govt. so they come here to try to change our country's laws to favor them and our nit wit reps/senators, president go along.

The real dirty secret is that our federal politicians are importing these people not just to work, but to replace Americans as the majority of voters. They will be easier to manipulate. Read the DUMP DICK DURBIN site

I am a public school elementary teacher in Los Angeles. LAUSD actively recruits foreign teachers (Phillipines, S. Korea, Mexico etc.) for teaching positions, even in a time when there supposedly are no teaching positions.

I agree with Roy Beck 100%. Any Senator or Congress person that votes for immigrant assistance will lose their seat.

Numbers USA needs to start zeroing in on all those in Congress that are the ones perpetuating this lunacy. There are key members in Congress that are pushing the rest of their members to ignore the public outcry to STOP foreign workers. Who are they?

I thing Roy Beck is completely right. I cannot believe our President is risking the lives of the Americans that put him in office. He is cares nothing of this country or the people who are in it paying taxes and neither does Congress.

This administration and the Democratic Congress are digging their own graves as they will see in 2010 and 2012. They have proven time and again that they do what they wish, not what the majority of our citizens desire.

I am sick of congress, the unions and the national Chamber of Commerce that have bought of or congressmen ans woman. A revised Health care program will not cure that sickness. Lock the door before it is too late.

The President and congres need to stat thinking of the American people, this is a ridiculous time in our history, when foreighners come before us Americans who have build this country with our tax dollars, but it is spent on illegal aliens instead. Debbie

American workers are fed up with gettting the shaft from our own representatives. No one is protecting our workers. Employers are hiring illegal aliens, because they are cheaper. A lot of them are uneducated. Congress is living in an Ivory tower.

I work in a public "special needs" pre-school in a large town in NJ. Most of the students are immigrants, and likely children of illegals. The state of NJ will provide free health insurance for these children. We are making it easy and attractive.

I agree with Roy Beck completely.Have children loosing home because of getting laid off and are left with no jobs.

I lost my job 8/13/08 and My family and I have been natural born real Americans all our lives. I warned America in Jan 09 about President Obama, and the danger of illegal aliens from Mexico. Please wake up America... Vote out our dangerous politions.

Roy I would like to believe that Americans, Will help there unemployed statesmen. It is just not so. The ones that are still working are feeling so high and mighty. They still have a job. I notice when they become unemployed they get active. Sad Sad Sad

Why must 15 million jobless Americans have to fight for or give up jobs that should be theirs? We owe nothing to ILLEGALS, yet this govt. cares more about them than their own consituents. We will surely change that next election. That IS CHANGE.

Our congressmen are really in the dark if they don't know what's going on? E-mail them and threaten that your vote will count for someone else come election time. Our people NEED the jobs, not illegals.We need to be heard. It's up to us. frankie LOUISIAN

I can't wait until election time to get rid of the so called representives of the People who think they are above reproach. They forgot what they were put into office for and by who.Patricia of Fl.

All of you who are supposed to represent us will soon be out of a job in the 2010 elections if you are supporting the immigration of foreighners to take our jobs.

We also need to secure our border by building the fence. 90%Cocaine80% Meth come over Southern Border. Each year, drug abuse & addiction cost taxpayers nearly $534 billion in preventable health care, law enforcement, crime, & other costs.

I hope everybody someday sees the light. the politicians are just doing what their puppet masters want them to do. those masters hate everything that is American because America stands in the way of their agenda, GOT IT?

If you remember back, when Nafta passed, we were spoon fed the idea that we would be able to EXPORT our goods.The only thing we've exported was JOBS. We need to repeal Nafta, it will then take 10 years to re-establish our factories & start making US goods

I grew up in the 50's. We were what was referred to as 'isolationists' because we made all we needed. I still have a dishwasher that is harvest gold. Runs MUCH better than my new high-end Whirlpool. STOP BUYING THE CHINA STUFF. Let it stay on the shelves.

This is my last rave. Find a congressman who is against Pork-Barrell. I think John McCain was one of them. Do your homework and take time to write to them.-call them. GET OUT AND WORK FOR THEM. We think we don't have any power but we do..if we exercise it

I don't see any fax forms in the Action Buffet for this...can someone add some?

How America got an administration and most of congress to work against it is frightening. They are distorting America into something even foreigners can no longer recognize. This is taxation without representation. This is tyranny. Vote them out ASAP. An administration that refuses to maintain its own citizens in favor of foreigners is nothing less than traitorous. Vote them out.
