Banning illegal immigrant renters pricey, divisive

Mar 24, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KLKN

A Dallas suburb has spent five years and nearly $5 million trying to ban illegal immigrants from renting apartments within city limits, but court challenges have kept the law from taking effect.

The Federal Courts have promulgated the destruction of the meaning and purpose of our U.S. Constitution in many ways not only through supporting illegal immigration but through other issues such as "affirmative action". Taken together, "affirmative action" and "illegal immigration" are indicative of a pogrom of elimination against Caucasians, especially Caucasian men. Yet, any individual who opposes the aforementioned peacefully through the judicial process faces faces a judicial, legislative, and executive unyielding "stone wall" such that, in my mind, only a new Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence seems appropriate and timely.
The Dallas Morning News has long been a strong supporter of illegal immigration. I suppose that it is because it would lose advertisers, if it opposed the same.

This part is hilarious:

Quote:
Latino civil rights group MALDEF, which is helping fight the Farmers Branch law, said backers of such laws should give up.

"The federal courts have made clear that cities cannot make their own immigration laws and target residents for expulsion simply because of their race or nationality," Nina Perales, MALDEF's vice president of litigation, said in a statement.
End Quote

"...simply because of their race or nationality..."?????? Really? What part of "illegal alien" don't they get? Illegal alien is neither a race nor a nationality. It's a legal status.

These special interest groups will try anything, even if it makes them look like complete idiots. I guess idiots rallying for idiots is pretty typical.

You're a stupid, racist, ignorant person.

Illegal aliens come in all colors, all ethnic backgrounds, all nationalities, all religions, etc. Therefore, the laws against illegal aliens applies just as much to white illegal aliens as it does to brown and black and yellow. The fact that there are *more* brown illegal aliens is not anyone's fault but their own.

Illegal alien is a criminal status and people who break the law must suffer the consequences.

A comparison of forcing people to comply with our laws is nothing like Hitler.

Hitler took quite legal people -- people who had every right to live where they were living -- and killed them based on what they looked like.

No one is doing that here, and for you and the other ignorant, illegal alien supporters to suggest otherwise just shows how stupid you are.

It doesn't matter what an illegal aliens *looks* like. What matters is that they are breaking the laws of this country. No one is putting them to death; they are being returned home to where they belong.

No, ignorant, dummy, YOU need to read more and try to keep up (though I know that's hard for someone with limited mental capacities such as yourself).

Bush started an operation called Operation Wide Receiver. It ran between 2006 and 2007. The big differences were that Bush's operation was done with full knowledge and cooperation of the Mexican government *and* he kept track of the weapons (or made efforts to). Obozo's operation was done in secret, without knowledge or cooperation of the Mexican government, and he did not track the weapons.

Bush was smart enough to see the operation would not work and thus ended it not long after it began. Instead of learning from Bush's mistake, Obozo went ahead and started Fast and Furious and took it to a level that was beyond stupid. Smart people learn from mistakes. Dummies make them again -- only worse. Fast and Furious didn't start until 2009.

I have never stated this country is just for white people you ignorant little troll. I said ALL law breakers should be forced to suffer the consequences of their actions. ALL, as in everyone, no matter what color they are. They could be purple with orange polka dots for all I care. If they break the law, they need to pay for it.

They have left their country to make a better life for themselves and us, they need the opportunity to make it. They may not make enough money to live in the nicest places but this does not make them bad people.
We do not need to blame them for all the things that are going wrong for our country, in fact, we need to blame the greedy corporations that have made their business ripping off the government and the hard working tax payers.
By changing their immigration status to legal aliens would it change your mind about them? no, right. It is because an immigration status does not change the person, it is not the immigration status what is driving these campaign against illegal immigrants.
What it bothers people is to see strange people moving close, it gives everybody a sense of loss, if something changes people feel they lost what they had. Even legal immigrants or US citizens born to foreign aliens. People do not like to admit but it is true.
i think you bumped your head. stealing jobs over crowding schools by the making or anchors and filling up prisons is not helping this country. having babies that they have no way to pay for the birth and begging from us to feed and cloth them is robbing the people and in no way helping.

there is no such of a thing as a citizen born to illegal aliens,that is only what the traitors against the country push and refuse to set things straight.this mess is being pushed on citizens from those in washington.

PS, ITS NOT RACIST, ITS ANTIAMERICAN AND ILLEGAL JUST LIKE THE SWINE YOU RENT TO.
The Obama administration is currently being investigated by Congress for trafficking thousands of high-powered weapons to Mexican drug cartels under Operation Fast and Furious. Some of those guns were later tied to the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
Meanwhile, lawmakers are also probing the administrationís money laundering activities through the DEA after a front page story in the New York Times exposed the scheme. According to sources and reports, the federal government may even be directly involved in fomenting the chaos south of the border: More than a few drug kingpins and some American officials have even said the U.S. government was purposefully providing weapons and protection to the criminal empires.
I ask myself "how could our citizens have actually voted for this dictator"? but then again maybe there were alot illegal voters casting votes. With everything going against him and he still won't give it up before he is grotesquely embarrased!! what's it going to take???

Wrong. This country is about freedom for its *citizens*.

You're the one making it a racial issue; that's mainly because your argument has no basis in fact.

Too easy. Breaking this down, point by point: Only 4% of illegals work in the agriculture industry. I worked on a farm, growing up, physical labor is good for you. As far as construction goes, there are too many horror stories out there of slipshod work done by illegals that has to be dismantled and redone. I'm QUITE sure that illegals didn't leave their home countries to make OUR lives better- and since the GAO (Government Accounting Office) says that only 24% of illegals work, your point is bullllshhhhit. Also, there is plenty of evidence that illegals bring with them crime, deseases, vermin (like the bedbug-thing, it's making a biiiiiig comeback), facts that would be halted at the border, were illegals trying to do things by our REASONABLE laws. The US allows 80,000 LEGAL immigrants a year- more than any other country in the history of the world- THAT is reasonable. Giving away citizenship merely because you "PASSED GO" is a slap in the face of every American and a slap in the face of LEGAL immigrants who fought and died and enforced our laws to make this the country that it is - the one criminals are sneaking into because they (76%) don't have the balls to do it in their own country.

Exactly.Freedoms only apply for those who qualify .Stand your ground doesn't apply to Trayvon Martin.A black kid can't beat the crap out of white man chasing down.Laws are made to protect white people from the rest of us.
