Stand Up For America!

On June 17, Day laborers from New Jersey, New York and Connecticut met in Morristown at a conference sponsored by the National Day Labor Organizing Network. A contingent gathered at the Morristown train station “demanding raids on illegal immigrants cease, and that any national legislation include a provision for family reunification”.

"We, the day laborers, are working people," Morristown resident Erick Carreto, 26, a community organizer for the Wind of the Spirit immigrant resource center, said through an interpreter.

Diana Mejia, also of Wind of the Spirit, said day laborers wanted to speak in Morristown because of Mayor Donald Cresitello's plan to deputize local police officers to enforce immigration law.
It appears the illegal aliens’ demands may well be met. The Senate today voted by a margin of 64-35 for cloture, a necessary step to revive the Senate’s immigration bill. The final bill would likely give amnesty to an estimated 12 to 20 million illegal immigrants and provide for chain migration to the U.S, also known as family reunification.

This Senate vote occurred despite the lack of support from the American people. The most recent polls show support for the immigration bill falling to an all-time low:

Among the public, there is a bi-partisan lack of enthusiasm for the Senate bill. It is supported by 22% of Republicans, 23% of Democrats, and 22% of those not affiliated with either major party.
New Jersey’s Senators Bob Menendez and Frank Lautenberg are currently on board with the bill, but you can make your voice heard at a ProAmerica Rally that will be held on Saturday July 28 in Morristown. Blogger Robb Pearson is organizing this event and has put together a website with all the details.
It’s time to stand up and make your voice heard!

First we need to get rid of 50% of the government and our country would still be over staffed. I served during the Vietnam war and the VA garnisheed my wages from social security for medicine. This is so low you can see how the government is. Vietnam Vets are still ignored. My problems with our country are:
1. We are being taxed to death to make the people in our government richer.
2. Our President gave us money back and the state and local government found ways to get it back in cigarette taxes and gas taxes.
3. They complain about the people on social security getting raises and some live on 600.00 a month.
4. They give billions away to other countries and over look what is happening what is going on at home.
5. we are in another war where the money spent could help the kids in America and many lives of the soldiers saved.
6. The racism is America is unbelievable. Stop It NOW. The white people in American history were slave also. You don't here them complaining. The people who are raciest are the ones complaining.
7. Our government taxes us for our pay and then taxes us on what we buy. They are getting it from every point. We are be double and triple taxed in every way and know one looks at this. There is federal, state, city, RITA taxes, taxes on every utility, food cigarettes, homes, cars. You name it and we are being taxed. Where does it stop MR.PRESIDENT.
8. We as Americans are losing all of our rights. For once Mr. President make a difference. You are turning just as greedy and demanding as the rest of the people in office. America is going to have to stand up and take our country back. We are hurting here and none of you care.
9. I still see the low and middle income people being taxed to death and singled out.
10. I love my country and I see it turning into the Hitler days. We need to stop the political bull in this country. The government only thins of their pockets and not the people. I am 60 and dying and I have seen a lot and this is the worst it has ever been. We are not free any more. AMERICANS STAND UP NOW OR LOOSE IT.
