Angry somebody should be shot

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070724/...rants_id_cards<---for the whole unedited story

part of the article

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Dozens of people lined up at City Hall on Tuesday for municipal identification cards, the first city-issued ID cards specifically designed to bring illegal immigrants out of the shadows and give them access to community services.


The cards, available to New Haven's entire population, are meant to help anyone without a state- or federal-issued ID open a bank accounts and use other services that would otherwise be inaccessible. Advocates argue that if immigrants can open bank accounts, they will be less likely to carry large amounts of cash, a practice that makes them easy targets for robbers.

An estimated 10,000 to 12,000 of New Haven's 125,000 residents are believed to be in the country illegally.

Have we forgotten what this word means?

Ray Sanchez, a 36-year-old laborer waiting in line at City Hall with more than 100 others, said the card would also let him get a library card, use banks and learn English. It also would make him feel more safe, he said.
Learn English, really? I doubt that is high on his list of things to do

"We need to send money to the places we come from. For me, I feel better. If the police catch me, I have identification now," Sanchez said.
How about if you want to be part of this country you spend a some money here.
Catch you what? Being here illegally?

There also a contingent of protesters at City Hall on Tuesday. Bob Luciani, a teacher from Woodbridge, said he is concerned that that other cities may do what New Haven has done.

"It's going to metastasize across all over the country. I think this is totally illegal," he said. "If we don't go by laws, then we're going to have anarchy."
I couldnt agree more.

Another protesters held a sign reading: "You have cheated on those who have been waiting to enter the country legally."


New Haven already offers federal tax help to immigrants and prohibits police from asking about their immigration status. The new ID cards cost $5 for children and $10 for adults.


Shortly after city officials approved the program, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents conducted raids that led to about 30 arrests.

"The benefits outweigh the risks
," she said.
For who?

i guess the thing that really makes me mad, is they take all of our minimum wage jobs, or less money sometimes even. i mean how can our lazy teenagers find a job so they can buy weed?

Don't kid yourself that they only take "minimum wage jobs".

Know anybody in the meat packing business? Decent hourly jobs at $10 - $15 and hour?

Ask yourself why there's a huge Mexican presence in the Carolinas (chicken & pork processing or Iowa & Nebraska (beef & pork). "Help Wanted" ads for a meat processing house in NW Ohio require that all applicants write and speak fluent spanish, "preferably as a first language". Non-Mexicans are intimidated and ran out of jobs at meat plants in eastern Nebraska (you won't see THAT on the 6:00 newscast).

It's estimated that over 50% of the construction jobs in the rebuilding of New Orleans are filled with illegal aliens. Again, not "minimum wage gigs".
