Mark Zuckerberg - "Citizen tool"

August 6, 2013

Hey Mark Zuckerberg..... where do you stand on unemployed Legal Immigrant Veterans (or just unemployed Vets for that matter)?
While you are soooooo busy advocating illegal immigrants getting a path to citizenship with Jose Vargas (a illegal alien journalist who hasn't found a law yet he isn't willing to break), a bunch of us who came here legally don't have jobs. Funny thing, I don't hear Facebook being in the forefront of Vet issues (instead, you volunteered at a classroom where many there were illegally in the US). How about you spend some time with some Veterans and get behind some people who have served the country and are DESERVING of your attention. Get your head out of your ***!!!:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spoke out publicly for the first time Monday in favor of immigration reform, an issue he's been working on behind the scenes for several months.

The 29-year-old billionaire made his remarks in San Francisco at the debut screening of "Documented," an autobiographical documentary by activist and journalist Jose Antonio Vargas.

Wearing his trademark hoodie and sneakers, Zuckerberg disputed the notion that he and other Silicon Valley leaders are just trying to secure more H1B visas for high-tech workers.

"This is something that we believe is really important for the future of our country — and for us to do what's right," Zuckerberg told several hundred attendees, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Zuckerberg and his former Harvard University roommate Joe Green recently founded the organization to advocate for a pathway to citizenship for nearly 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. But Monday was the first time Zuckerberg spoke about the issue in public.

The Facebook Inc. founder said he first became aware of the need to change the immigration system while volunteering to teach a class on entrepreneurship at a Menlo Park school. Many of the students had been brought into the U.S. illegally.

"No matter where they were born, (these students) are going to be tomorrow's entrepreneurs and people creating jobs in this country," he told the audience. "These are issues that don't just touch our part of the industry, but really touch a whole country."


March with us in Washington on July 15th

July 11, 2013

Dear activist,

The Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) has organized an anti-amnesty march and rally -- the DC March for Jobs -- in Washington, D.C. on Monday, July 15th. The goal is to "demand that our leaders reject amnesty, enforce immigration laws as written, and support policies that put black U.S. citizens back to work."
As their web site notes, if the Gang of Eight's immigration bill is enacted, it "will be costly for all Americans, but will harm black American workers more than a...

Here is Motor Voter in all of it's nastiness

June 17, 2013

No where is it listed (that I can see) where the state can take a sample of the cards and to use either a 3rd party or independent party to verify a certain amount of these cards to see if the applicant is being truthful. The effort seems to be that the person sending in the card is treated with kid gloves and that it takes a miracle to change the laws. I also wonder if anyone thought to include this information in the law that when conduc...

The US Supreme Court ~ Out to lunch

June 17, 2013
I am a LEGAL immigrant. What I am about to say does not make me a bigot, against a specific minority or race, or against immigrants.
The US Supreme Court has officially gone off it's rocker. The fact it is Hispanic open borders organizations and the ACLU trumpeting their approval of this is evidence that it is getting to a point that you just only need your "word" that you are a US Citizen to vote. Given that voting decides our political races, why is it that as a illegal immigrant, legal imm...

I officially will now have more time to dedicate to this site.

August 27, 2012

As a result of many changes where I was working, my job is moving elsewhere and my time there is ending (and I venture into the unknown). A renewed effort will start taking place in september as this issue will definitely play a role in this election. Legal immigrants need their voice heard, and I aim to provides the means to do that. Stay tuned, much more activity to come.

The Administration takes its marbles and goes home?

June 26, 2012
After the Supreme Court ruling on monday, the Obama administration ended an agreement Monday that allowed some specially trained local police in the state to enforce immigration laws. I am researching this and will comment as soon as I have more detail.

A Naturalized Citizen's View of Immigration (legal or otherwise).

June 23, 2012

Jose Vargas, the former Washington Post journalist, wrote an article in the New York Times magazine on June 22, 2011 that is pertinent to the action by the Obama administration this past week (with his Department of Homeland Security giving 800,000 illegal immigrants the opportunity to remain in this country with no actions to be taken to deport them).

Mr. Vargas was in a conference room at the American Immigration Lawyers Association outfitted with a projector and screen, Vargas watched Oba...

‘I am a legal immigrant’

June 23, 2012

I plan on starting up this blog with the intention of having a respectful communication with others regarding our present immigration dilemma.

I had written a letter to the editor to the Chicago Tribune in April of 2010 and it was published on 5/2/2010. I will start this blog off by re-printing that and going from there.
