Illegal immigration is the topic of today's featured video on the Texas Watchdog homepage.

The featured clip is one from Houston PBS' "Houston 8" public affairs program. It features a discussion between radio host and former Houston City Councilman Michael Berry; Jeronimo Cortina, a political science professor at the University of Houston; and immigration lawyer Charles Foster.

The panelists frequently make mention of the DREAM Act, the proposed federal law that would have given permanent residency to young people who are immigrants and who serve two years in the military or college. The bill to create the law was stopped by a Senate filibuster just before Christmas.

See a great video clip about Texas government or politics, watchdog journalism, or government accountability or transparency? Let us know. Texas Watchdog is always looking for good video clips to feature on its homepage. Drop a line to jennifer@texaswatchdog.org.

Help Stop The Political Traitors In Congress & End Illegal Politics In The U.S

We must organize as a nation now… The U.S is on the path of being taken over by illegal immigrant and terrorist by 2011. Internet censoring or site blocking in the U.S is already being tested and a bill is up for a vote. Beware crooked businesses, politicians, and other trader illegal immigrant supports will push congress & Obama to vote to yes on an amnesty bill this year to allow the continued invasion of over 30 million illegal immigrants. Most of who are habitual lawbreakers, uneducated, criminals, terrorists, gang members, pedophiles, prostitutes, and drug users/dealers. Illegal Immigrant and supporters steal money, use violence, and make terrorist threats to people who oppose amnesty or want laws enforced. Defense budgets and military bases all over the country are closing down. Wake up U.S citizens!!! We do not need more illegal’s joining the military. We have the draft and Militia’s in law for emergency or invasion. Why are our military soldiers dispatched all over the world? Not to protect us, but to protect big corporations and the rich over seas. Your current lawmakers have sold us out to foreign nations, private investors and the poor south of our border. The plan is to replace us with illegal immigrants then leave legal U.S citizens broke, hungry and defenseless to be taken over by rich and poor foreigners with bad intension. Citizens born in the United States are the target of elimination and are slowly being pushed out of the workforce to be left broke and dry. Illegal immigrants in the U.S earn an average income of $30,000 per yr with no papers, elementary diploma, high school diploma, or college degree. This is our regional land and the citizens born of it have a physical & spiritual oath to preserve or defend it at all cost. A fact is illegal immigrants hate U.S citizens; many raise their kids to be lawbreakers, criminals and to support terrorism in the USA like there parents. This Dream Act and any for of amnesty is a breach of national security and must be stopped now. The people do not have to accept this treason or any new laws or legislation that supports foreigners before it’s own legal citizens. Organize & mobilize join us at http://usmoa.org/
