If you would like to really understand the difference between the argument that illegal aliens do the jobs American citizen workers won’t do vs. American citizen workers can’t afford to take the jobs illegal aliens do….watch this eye-opening video How Union Workers Are Affected By Illegal Immigration [Video] .

Ginny Campbell, Omaha responds to Aida Cruz, May 17 letter and asks her where the fairness is in 12 million immigrants invading our country and having a feeling of entitlement to everything we have at no cost to them.

Nick R. Bechtel, Fremont…..legal immigration is when someone knocks on the front door and is glad to meet you. Illegal immigration is when someone comes in the back door in the middle of the night, makes himself at home and can’t understand why he is not welcome.

Leonard Hill, Iowa….if you bleeding hearts feel so bad for them, then go to their country and help them get a better life. Legal immigrants, yes; illegal immigrants, no.

Aida Cruz, David City….. Why do human beings have to judge? It’s just not fair.

Illegals…get out of Dodge!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on May 23, 2008

Here’s some interesting comments posted this morning in the Dodge City, KS news regarding a previous story (“City officials told area has no need for immigration office,” May 16).  Dodge City is sometimes called the meat packing capital of the United States, with close to 11000 cattle being processed a day.  Wonder what the real percentage is in Schuyler, Lexington, Madison and Sioux City ?  Nebraska immigration enthusiasts/open-border nuts can only hope for these numbers!

I would rather see an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in SW Kansas and enforce the law. Deport anyone illegal. Traveling to Wichita is a minor inconvenience if they want to be legal, naturalized citizens. If an employer wants to keep their help, they can accommodate that request. Perhaps the employer should pay hefty fines if they are employing illegal help.

 

“By the way … Senator Roberts tried to get the office, and he comes to SW Kansas quite often. It was the immigration office in Washington that refused him. I agree that these illegals or immigrants are people too, but they need to respect our laws and culture, which they currently do not.”

 

“Here’s my real question about this topic: How can the Hispanic population in Dodge City be ‘46%,’ (according to Rick Sowers) when our public schools are recording the Hispanic student population anywhere between 85-95 percent? I’m no math whiz, but those numbers don’t sound right. I believe the schools have the more accurate count, and besides that, all you have to do is look around town to see the truth!”
