That is what he thinks of you LEGAL American citizens who are OUT a job and voted for him..

This should NOT of been moved to another section. It is more political than about immigration.
Its a bullshit spam post from a bunch of bigots who have used immigration as a way to appear less loathsome than reality would suggest

Hardcore Racists Flock to NumbersUSA’s Campaign | IMAGINE 2050
In order to facilitate its efforts, NumbersUSA re-tooled its home page to include webcasts, detailed action alerts, and a social media feed. Not surprisingly, its attempt to create a web-based community backfired as its action alerts and website brought out racists, bigots, and the worst of the anti-immigrant movement. Even though NumbersUSA and the John Tanton Network claim its anti-immigrant agenda does not fuel hateful rhetoric, here are some recent examples of how NumbersUSA’s message once again created an environment where individuals and groups have felt comfortable using hate speech.
Near the end of last week, a disturbing tweet was seen on the NumbersUSA web-site. The tweet read, “Thanks@NumbersUSA we need somebody to stand up for the rights of white people. JUST SAY NO TO DIVERSITY.” This tweet echoes a common message found in the white nationalist community which claims that diversity and multiculturalism is the root of all our nation’s problems. NumbersUSA removed this tweet from its feed but failed to publically disavow the message.
In a members-only section of its website that evaluates members of Congress, NumbersUSA assigned Senator Dick Durbin an F and Senator Roland Burris an F minus on their immigration record. Under a picture of Illinois Congressman Roland Burris, a NumbersUSA member wrote, “You have disgraced yourself and the (sic) all the people of IL, especially the Black citizens. We should welcome you home with Tar and Feathers.” Another member wrote, “Only when the people show up to REMOVE these treasonous crooks will justice be served! Bring back the rope!” Despite the fact that Roland Burris is African-American and the history lynching and torture has played in our country, these horrible threats remained on NumbersUSA’s website for nearly a month before being removed.
NumbersUSA seems to be popular throughout the white nationalist and skinhead communities. At the beginning of the week NumbersUSA’s campaign was promoted by white nationalist David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. On Vinlanders Social Club, NumbersUSA is promoted on the home page with a direct link to its website. Vinlanders Social Club is a midwest coalition of racist skinhead groups with a history of violence against members of the black community.
On Stormfront, in a thread entitled, “Obama Begins Immigration Reform and Amnesty” a posting which reads like a NumbersUSA advertisement cites the details of the S.T.O.P Amnesty campaign and directs Stormfront members to the NumbersUSA website. Stormfront is the leading white nationalist, white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and skinhead social networking forum. The website was started by former Ku Klux Klan leader, Don Black, in 1995. NumbersUSA’s campaign was promoted on Stormfront the same week that a member of Stormfront wrote of his plans to carry a concealed weapon to a similar immigration reform rally in Utah.
Although NumbersUSA has actively tried to distance itself from the extreme far right, its message stills resonates deeply with these communities. Even the group’s own Executive Director, Roy Beck, has spoken to a white supremacist organization, the Council of Conservative Citizens in the past. Therefore, until NumbersUSA strongly condemns the comments made on its web-site and the promotion of its messaging on skinhead and white nationalist sites, they are not a credible voice on the important issues surrounding immigration in our country.
See how damn smart he is? The unemployment rate in black urban communities is 16% and he's going to give illegals permission to work.. Hooo ray for dimlightbulbeddimoRats.
Screw the Southern Poverty Law Center. They are NOT the judge and jury of who is AND ISN'T hard core right wing or Racist. I've been on the NumbersUSA site and they have NEVER been what they are accusing them of. I wouldn't believe the SPLC if it came notarized on their lying tongues.
You know this.
I know this.
But the left will eat it up. As that whining koala did. They love to be told what to think instead of how to think for themselves.
If what you call what you are doing thinking. Its more like jumping at any chance to act like bigoted morons with social approval.
Is the fact that the founder of NumbersUSA associates with neo-nazis disturbing to you? No. You just bleat that SPLC is some kind of left-wing plot. You don't even bother to read the cite. Whatever.
You don't bother to read either, instead you just LAP UP what the SPLC says and regurgitates it. I TOLD YOU I had been on the NumbersUSA site, checked them out regularly, and they are NOT CONNECTED with anyone but are worried about the numbers of ILLEGIAL IMMIGRANTS that ARE INVADING OUR COUNTRY. you can call people all the names you want, bigot..........pfeeeeesh.................... who gives a shit.
Nobody APPOINTED the SPLC the judge and jury of who is and who isn't right wing, racist or anything else. I don't TAKE ANYTHING they say as the TRUTH
