Of course the state government wants more money, because pregnant illegal alien Mothers smuggle their unborn in through unsuspecting airline routes and across large areas of open borders? Every year this country has to pander to hundreds of thousands of illegal entrants, adding to the 20 million plus already settled here. Forced by the courts we have to pay their living expenses for their children, because of automatic citizenship. President Obama has already condemned us to a rise in his taxes, as his administration will on his arrival back in the Capital will enact a full blanket amnesty for every individual that resides here illegally. I am not going to repeat the costs of the money paid in taxes to keep illegal aliens healthy, to educate their children, to put a section 8 shelter over their heads. The courts have determined that we should keep paying for foreigners, whether we like it or not. As yet there has been no attempt by any administration, in placing this illegal migrant or immigrant before the Supreme Court.

When California or any other state is demanding more money from taxpayers to pay for education of the influx of foreigners, then we should adamantly say NO to either measure 30 or 38. This situation is incredulous that illegal aliens can come here, with their offspring, whether conceived or not and the courts say we must be taxed, to pay for their welfare? The insurmountable problem is that this enigma is sees no light at the end of the tunnel. More taxes to pay for more Teachers. The Tea Party has a straight forward answer and that is a simple amendment to the 14th Amendment? THAT NO CHILD BORN TO A PARENT WHO IS NOT AN AMERICAN CITIZEN, CAN NO LONGER BECOME A U.S. AUTOMATICALLY. This will save the taxpayer over a hundred billion dollars annually and justifiably stop the never ending drain on state treasuries. With no foothold baby the parents can then be deported out the country, with the child and the schools can get down to educating our own. ALL PRUDENT AMERICANS SHOULD GET BEHIND “THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP LAW” and save billions of your tax dollars.

While you about it, demand from all reluctant politicians that they vote for “THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT” That will make E-Verify a mandatory federal law that will begin the repatriation of illegal workers. If this law is passed from Washington, instead of a muddled mix of E-Verify across the 50 states, then people here illegally will begin to self deport. If ICE enforces this law with prosecutions of huge fines and prison, the unconcerned employers will be very leery of hiring foreign labor. Remember that the TEA PARTY is for both of these laws and will vote for them in the Congress. Unlike what the Liberal press declares the TEA PARTY is alive and well, with a growing membership of 41 million voters. They have crafted their agenda by gaining recognition in the Republican Party and as a moderate Conservative foundation, will have momentous influence in the coming four years. In both the Senate and House of Representatives they will not accept the tax and spend of the democrats, and will revise the rulings of the U.S. Constitution.

According to reports thousands of officials will be out in force to guard against voter fraud. The problem as I see it, is how do they detect election irregularities when individuals are transported in from other counties to another where they once lived as the voter rolls may not have been purged or the easiest and simple serious shenanigans using the absentee ballot? It should be recognized that illegal aliens are going to be on the chopping block if Obama doesn’t win? Therefore, my opinion is that foreign nationals and other non citizens have much to lose, so they are likely to caste an illegal vote? In tight or close races especially in swing states, these will be a predominant hit, as this could change the direction of the election?
