The woman who answered the phone sounded bewildered that I would even

So here I am, trying to protect the good jobs on this island and, to my
disappointment, local law enforcement isn`t interested.

Reader Calls Massachusetts Senator Kennedy`s Office To
Get Some Answers; Office Hangs Up
Slade, Sr. [e-mail
VDARE.COM readers realize the impact the
1965 Immigration Act had on America`s demographics.
Then as now,
Senator Edward M. Kennedy played a central role in
working against American traditions
Kennedy`s shocking advocacy of still more
immigration 40 years later weighing on my mind, I
decided to phone his Washington, D.C. office to ask
whoever answered the phone what Senator Kennedy thinks
today about his decision long ago.
unidentified young man answered the phone. When I posed
my question, he replied: "I don`t have time for this
call." He then hung up in my face.
believing what had happened, I phoned back, got another
unidentified young man who referred me to a third person
supposedly knowledgeable on the subject of immigration.
aide claimed that the 1965 act "opened the doors"
for others. He also told me Kennedy`s support reflected
the will of the Massachusetts people.

received (I was never argumentative, but I was
persistent), I decided to phone

We always hear the phrase "

The phrase is "so we can go into the shadows"

Saturday`s Letters: A
Hazleton, PA. Reader Thanks America For Supporting His
Town`s Fight Against Illegal Immigration
have been reading VDARE.COM for years. And I am pleased
to report a clear triumph in my hometown of Hazelton,
PA, where Mayor Lou Barletta, stood before City Council
on July 13 and affirmed, "Enough is enough!"
then presented to City Council his revised Illegal
Immigration Relief Act. Given the national and
international media attention that
Mayor Louis Barletta had received over the previous
few weeks regarding this ordinance, each person in
Council chambers knew what a historic moment it was not
only for the city but also for the nation as well.
President Bush, Mayor Barletta responded to the
concerns and pleas of his citizens to protect them from
the violent crimes that Hispanic illegals are committing
in the city and the overwhelmingly negative impact
illegal immigration has made.
Mayor Barletta`s enlightenment came on May 10 when Derek
Kichline, a native Hazleton resident, was shot point
blank in the head and killed outside his home by four
Dominicans for no apparent reason. This murder
occurred on the same day that a 14-year-old illegal
Dominican possessing crack cocaine fired at a playground
that is used primarily by Hispanic children.
Because of the
rapid increase of Hazleton`s Hispanic community, a
700% growth rate that fueled the Hispanic population
from 3 percent of the city in 2000 to an estimated 30
percent in 2006, Mayor Barletta`s proposal has
predictably been denounced as being "racist," "bigoted,"
"discriminatory," and "mean-spirited."
The denunciations have come through the media from the
American Civil Liberties Union, the
Roman Catholic Church, the Puerto Rican Legal
Defense Fund, People for the American Way, and other
by a vote of 4-1, on July 13 the City Council of
Hazleton pasted a historic milestone by adopting the
most restrictive anti-illegal immigration law in the
United States with the full support and encouragement of
the native residents of the Hazleton area.
a result, other local communities such as Hazle
Township, White Haven, Wilkes-Barre Township either have
passed or are considering passing similar ordinances.
And like a small spark that can begins an inferno,
cities as far away as Palm Bay and Avon Park, Florida
and Escondido and San Bernardino, California are also
considering similar proposals.
With the national and international media attention
Hazleton has received over the last few weeks, the
people of this area have been characterized as "redneck,
backwater hicks" filled with "racism" and "hate."
But Hazleton – now celebrating its 150th anniversary –
is a city built by true immigrants in a time when
immigration was good for America.
a Hazelton resident, I am proud of what Mayor Barletta
and the City Council have done and grateful for the
support shown by the rest of the country to us.
Mayor Barletta said after the passage of the ordinance,
"What you saw here tonight was a city that wants to
take back what America has given us."
ask all Americans to follow our lead. Take back your
city and together we can take back America.
Remember—resistance is not futile!
