I just read in Thursday's paper that a poll of 1,004 adults. Most agree with illegal immigrants staying here in America.

If you are able to go on the Internet you will find thousands of adults who want them out of America. The true percentage, not counting the illegal immigrant vote, will actually show getting them out of America.

They are ruining the job industry. True Americans are having to pay for illegal immigrant's living and medical. The majority of them came into America unarmed but some came armed.

Either way you look at it, they are an invasion force from a foreign country. That is what we have a National Guard for, to repel an invasion force on American soil.

Why have our federal and state governments not put the National Guard into action and help the police round up illegal immigrants and send them back to their own country?

Instead of sending the invasion force back to let them get their government straightened out, our government is handing them our jobs and our hard-earned money.

Get hold of your state and federal officials and tell them to call out the National Guard and repel the invasion force.

It is never too late.
