  • This law is long overdue.

    I find it odd that there aren't activist groups bemoaning the enforcement of the laws they were originally arrested for...why is enforcing immigration laws any better or worse than enforcing others?

  • It is sad that the Federal Government has not enforced it's own laws concerning illegal immigration. The borders have been open too long! Illegal immigrants have taken AMERICAN JOBS, Over-crowed our schools, and overwhealmed our Health Care System. AMERICANS are unemployed, Without Insurance for health care, not to mention drug/gun smuggling and kidnapping our inocent children and keeeping them in the SEX SLAVE TRADE!!

    A corrections Officer told me they deported an Illegal back to his/her country and he/she was back in Shelbyville within 3 days. I support our new Public Chapter 1112 Bill-and shame on our Federal Government for putting States in the position we are now in. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

  • Our nation's borders, language, culture and sovereignty are all being destroyed in the name of political correctness. It's time to take our country back.

  • I agree with ckna910 and Tim Lokey.

    We need to call/write our State Representatives in Support of SB0010 concerning Driver's License Testing in English Only and HB1380 concerning traffic stops and local law enforcement reporting illegals.

    I wonder if all the 100-plus members of SOCM are here legally?

    I am also tired of having to choose my language when making phone calls.If someone is in our country, they need to learn our language. Their language should not be forced on us.

  • AMEN to all of the above. And companies like Tyson and Corsicana bring foreigners into our town and give away the jobs that our citizens are in need of.

    We have made many concessions over the past few years in letting them take over our jobs, health care benefits, and other free programs. And now every foreigner that comes to the U.S treats us like they are entitled to what WE have worked for. Just try going to Mexico and break a law, a small, insignificant law by our standards, and see what the consequences would be. The ruler of Mexico is not a friend to the U.S. When someone is deported back, that government should deal with them, but they turn a blind eye. They don't want to deal with them and that is why they are back in just a few days. Mexican rulers don't want "undesirables" in their country. This is the term he has used many times with the lower class in his country.

    Our government is to blame and it has happened over decades of the U.S. giving so many handouts and so much foreign aid instead of taking care of the people in need that are U.S. citizens and have helped to build this country. But over the years, there are those business owners that have gotten greedy for the sake of their own pockets and have shipped our industries out of this country or brought in cheap labor to make them millions. Those are the ones that need to be shipped out of our country along with their factories. Foreign aid should stay here to help those out of jobs and struggling to make ends meet and to feed their families and give them a decent place to live.

    I guess this is the day for me to be on my soap box because my family had been effected by the no-job situation. I try to help them as much as I can, but I am limited to how much I can do, too.

  • I agree with all of the above and I too, may add that it is way past time our laws were enforced.

  • I quit buying Tyson products when I became aware that they hire foreign workers over local people.I know a lot of others that quit buying too.If more people would do this to any company that hire foreign instead of americans we might make a difference.Also we might need to go to the streets to protest and kick the elected officials out of office.I'm waiting to see if any of the laws that passed make a difference but????????????
