    I USE THIS LETTER..TO BRING IT HOME

    I USE THIS LETTER TO BRING HOME THE DEVASTION CAUSED BY THE ILLEGAL ALIENS


    Dear

    I am writing today to ask you to please follow the lead of Hazelton, PA and pass strict immigration enforcement measures as soon as possible. The federal government is not adequately securing our border or enforcing our existing immigration laws. I feel it is incumbent upon our states and cities to take action to protect communities from illegal immigration. Weapons of mass destruction aren't only Artillery, Arms and Missiles....
    It's.... the threat of Invasion of a Country, Potential passage for Terrorist, unlawful passage into our Country, Over- staying visas, Unknown Illegals within, Vicious and Violent intruders turned loose on our streets, Violent Illegal Gang and Drug wars, Murder of Citizens and Government Workers, Smuggling Humans, Felons, Animals, Weapons and Drugs , Aiding and abetting criminal activity, Corruption, Mexican Militia crossing our borders to intimidate Citizens. Personal attacks on our Citizens, Property and Government, Illegal and Fraudulent use of State and Federal documents to obtain Money and Social Services .
    As a result there has been a crippling effect on States and Federal spending .

    Illegal immigration has many negative repercussions for our communities including depressed wages, increased health care costs, increased costs to taxpayers, increased crime, infectious diseases, and lost of American jobs.
    All of these atrocities result in Mayhem and Endangering lives of Citizenry.

    Every aspect of illegal aliens being in America is unlawful. Many are repeat offenders and we are rewarding them with benefits and a reprieve for their misdeeds

    I hope you will stand with the vast majority of Americans that want our laws enforced and our communities and tax dollars protected from illegal aliens.

    Please pass these ordinances as soon as possible. A majority of your constituents support this effort.
    Thank you

    Illegal immigration debate draws crowd
    Cherokee holding public hearing on landlord crackdown

    By CHRISTOPHER QUINN
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    Published on: 11/21/06
    The nationwide debate over illegal immigration came to Cherokee County Tuesday night, with people on both sides of the debate weighing in on a controversial proposal to target landlords who rent to people in the United States without permission.

    About 130 people crowded into a meeting room for a hearing on a proposal that stirred strong but restrained emotion, with spectators applauding speakers pro and con.

    Supporters saluted the commissioners and spoke of the need to uphold the rule of law, while opponents questioned the ordinance's legality and said illegal immigrants contribute to the economy.

    The arguments mirrored those made nationwide, as local governments increasingly find themselves grappling with an issue that has resisted quick fixes in Congress.

    "If you're an illegal, you're not supposed to be here," said James Bonner of Woodstock.

    "We have an opportunity to stand for the rule of law," said Todd Holmes of Woodstock. "I have two teenage sons who are having a very difficult time finding a job. Entry level jobs are not as available as they were when we were kids."

    Aquíles E. Martínez, a professor of religion at Reinhardt College, said commissioners should follow the example of Jesus.

    "The present ordinance is a clear violation of Jesus' example," Martínez said. "The people who welcome foreigners welcome Jesus. The people who reject foreigners reject Jesus."

    Jamie B. Hernan, an attorney, urged the commissioners to reject the proposal, saying it could exacerbate problems including homelessness. He also said he thinks the ordinance violates federal law.

    "Similar ordinances in other parts of the country ... have been passed and stopped by federal judges," he said.

    "This proposal will turn neighbor versus neighbor," said Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. "Instead you should pass a resolution calling for comprehensive immigration reform."

    If the ordinance is passed, the county marshal could ask property owners to gather documents from their tenants, which the county would then check against federal records.

    Landlords who rent to illegal immigrants could be barred from collecting rent, and fined. The county could also suspend an apartment complex's business license.

    The ordinance would cover unincorporated areas of the county. It would not apply to Cherokee's cities — such as Canton and Woodstock — which have the largest share of rental units in the county.

    Emotional debate

    Tuesday night was an emotional one inside the county courthouse, where the commissioners regularly meet.

    Manny Fernandez, pastor of the Rock Church in Woodstock, read four passages from Scripture and told the crowd that everyone should be welcomed and treated as residents.

    "God never made a distinction between legal and illegal," he told commissioners.

    Mary Kirkendoll of Cobb County drove to Canton to urge the commissioners to pass the measure.

    Illegal immigrants moved in next to her and were recently arrested and charged with running a meth lab in the house, she said.

    She waved a large manila envelope toward some Latino men who had urged the commissioners to oppose the ordinance.

    She asked the men if they would like to see pictures of what her neighborhood now looked like. Then, she turned back to the commissioners.

    "I commend you for making a stand," she said to applause.

    In comments made in the days leading up to the hearing, each of the five county commissioners expressed frustration with the federal government's failure to control illegal immigration.

    Opinion polls reflect that sentiment: Most Americans, the surveys show, want immigration reform, yet the president and Congress are still grappling with the issue.

    Cherokee County is one of the fastest-growing counties in metro Atlanta, and it's following some local governments in other states that have tried to tackle illegal immigration.

    Cities in Texas, Pennsylvania and California have enacted laws that punish landlords who rent to illegal immigrants. Those laws haven't been enforced because of legal challenges.

    Earlier this year the Georgia Legislature approved a wide-ranging crackdown on illegal immigrants, which Gov. Sonny Perdue signed into law. It bars adults who are in the country illegally from having access to some taxpayer-funded services.

    Their children are exempt, however, and adults still have access to some medical services.

    In Cherokee, opponents argued the commissioners' proposal was unfair and discriminatory. The Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials circulated e-mails urging people to attend the hearing.

    "I think this is just a political ploy to make people believe that Cherokee County is doing something that the federal government has failed to do — enact meaningful immigration reform," one opponent, Giovanni Diaz, said before the forum began.

    Cherokee County to vote on ban on renting to illegals immigrants

    The Associated Press - CANTON, Ga.

    The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners is expected to vote next month on whether to target landlords for renting to illegal immigrants.

    At a public hearing Tuesday night, the board heard from about 20 people on the proposed law, which would allow the county marshal's office to check the immigration status of people renting or leasing residences in unincorporated Cherokee County.

    If a violation has occurred, the property owner would be cited, their business license could be suspended and they would not be able to collect rent.

    Similar laws passed in Escondido, Calif., and Hazelton, Pa., are being challenged in court. Cherokee County could also face legal action if it passes the proposed law, attorney Jamie Hernan told the Cherokee Tribune.

    "Local county governments need to exercise some restraint and allow the federal government to address the issue," he said, adding the law would create a black market rental system that would force illegal immigrants into poor housing conditions.

    Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, said the county government's resources should be focused elsewhere to solve immigration problems or risk alienating the area's fast-growing work force.

    Supporters like George Lathero urged the board to pass the law.

    "Waiting for the federal government to help is a joke," said Lathero, who lives near Columbus and is a member of the Minutemen Project, whose members patrol the U.S.-Mexican border in search of illegal border crossers.

    He suggested the county government also should go after employers who hire illegal immigrants.

    Commissioner Karen Mahurin, who proposed the law earlier this month, said she will ensure the law meets all legal requirements before she brings it up for a vote Dec. 5. Most of the commissioners support the law.
