Senator John McCain was booed in Michigan for saying illegal aliens do the jobs Americans don't want.
In response to the booing, he told the crowd they couldn't do that kind of work, and offered anyone "$50.00 an hour to come to Arizona and pick lettuce. (http://www.projectusa.org/)
This is a letter that a friend wrote to McCain.
Dear Senator McCain,
Please consider me for employment in your $50 per hour lettuce picking program.
I am in good health, able to repeatedly lift over 70 pounds and withstand extremes of heat and cold. In addition, I am self directed as I am currently self-employed.
My abilities to organize and work effectively are also demonstrated by being the top graduate from my MBA class and completion of the Chartered Financial Analyst Testing.
Your offer of $50 per hour would far exceed any level of compensation I have received to date and would allow me the luxury of buying health insurance which I currently lack.
Please contact me as soon as possible to tell me where to report to work. My phone is (000) 000-0000. I am available to start on three days notice.
William R. American, MBA
What is the lesson THEY learn?
Today you march, tomorrow you vote?
While you demand I learn Spanish
Or you’ll yell racist and lunge for my throat
You demand rights and citizenship from me
While waving the large flag
Of the country your risked your life to flee
You say you want what is your right
While I pay for your children’s schooling and births
And we watch as MS-13 and our police fight
You shout that you came and that you should stay
While my money pays for your food stamps
And you and your friends take my friends’ jobs away
My taxes rise to pay for your children born here
Their schooling, their births, every trip to the emergency room
And left to run wild gangs add to our fear
I say I can’t pay for everything you demand and you say I had “the race”
While the poor kid from Oklahoma can’t afford college
When the kid from Mexico gets into college and funding in his place
Break our laws with your hand out for more
For welfare, for anchor babies, and demanding of jobs
When ever more jobs leave our own shore
How can we be equal when we import poverty and destroy law and order?
How can we afford the burden that they and their children bring?
And ask those who are raped and murdered because we have an open border.
For the black guy who loses his job and the Canadian who waited his turn
And the Chinese told to learn Spanish and the Indians who earned their visas
If we give Mexican illegals amnesty, what is the lesson THEY learn?

"When you see the Mexican flags and other flags - rather than American flags - being hoisted at these demonstrations, you essentially are getting this message: 'Yes, we are here illegally. No, we do not believe this to be your country. We do not believe in your laws . . . and we don't believe you're going to do anything about it.'" - Rep. J.D. Hayworth (AZ-R) -
It is safe to assume, however, based on a number of government reports, that there are upwards of 200,000 criminal aliens residing in the US. That doesn't include gangbangers such as MS-13.
For example, Border Patrol agents in the Tucson, AZ Sector have apprehended 27,834 illegal aliens with criminal records, 74 of which were for homicide. Last fiscal year, the Tucson Sector apprehended 14,506 illegal aliens with criminal records. These figures do not include the thousands of criminal aliens apprehended by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents or those in other Border Patrol sectors in other states.
"Observing the pro-immigration demonstrations in Phoenix, Los Angeles, Atlanta and elsewhere in recent days, I wondered: whose country is this? Why are many illegal aliens who broke our laws to get here and who continue to break our laws to stay here, demanding that the United States not only allow them to remain, but support them with the taxes of law-abiding citizens? Have we gone mad?" - Columnist Cal Thomas -
This is what Jesus said ---- according to John 10:
"I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber."
