WE ( ALL AMERICANS ) NEED THE IMMIGRANTS, TO COME HERE TO LIVE PERMANTLY, AND WORK, I WANT ACCROSS THE BOARD AMNESTY FOR ALL.
AND NO MORE WAITING 10 TO 12 YEARS FOR VISA’S,. EVERYONE THAT WANTS A VISA SHOULD GET IT IN LESS THAN 6 MONTHS PERIOD. AND GIVE THEM A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER UPON ENTRY, SO THEY CAN WORK THE NEXT DAY, AND PAY INCOME TAXES RIGHT ALONG SIDE ME AND EVERY OTHER MEMBER OF THE WORKING CLASS. REGARDLESS OF RACE OR COLOR.. LETS STOP THE HATE, LETS WORK TOGETHER.
Shame on the Republicans who worked on this deplorable map. Using this deceptively manipulating strategy just goes to show how low they will stoop to gain more political power. Putting aside for now the map’s illegality, they purposely and brazenly factored in race in deciding where to redraw the lines in order to take votes and power away from Blacks and Latinos. This new congressional boundary is also a direct response to the growing number of Latinos. This was a racist and elitist endeavor if it was driven by feelings of superiority to working-class “minorities.” How arrogant of them to think we are that stupid to not see through their conniving scheme.Even though racism is not as blatant as it was back when my great-great grandparents lived here in Austin, to me this subtle one feels more insidious and evil. The discrimination of Mexicans in Texas goes much further back in history. Encroaching Anglos used the Manifest Destiny theory to justify their killings and land grab. Then in 1848 the U.S. waged an illegal and unjust war against Mexico and seized half of it. Land continued to be confiscated from Mexicans through fraud and lynching.Now some Republicans seem to think that they have the God-give right to take away the legal rights we fought so hard for in the civil rights movement. The Senate needs to establish a set of guidelines for a fair redistricting process. A rule this important and sensitive should be written by intelligent and reasonable politicians and not self-righteous and bigoted ones.Anita Quintanilla77 Julius St.Austin, TX 78702512-903-9210Austin, TX 78702512-903-9210
To the victor, goes the power. Organize and get the power.
