An event to educate people about immigration reform and also to provide to the public resource material about the matter is set to take place Saturday, Oct. 5 in the city of Lynwood.

Set for 9 a.m. to noon at Bateman Hall, 11330 Bullis Road, the event is also to be sponsored by the city of Lynwood, United Service Workers West and the office of Assemblyman Anthony Rendon, among other organizations.

“Our nation’s broken immigration system keeps our friends and neighbors, students and parishioners, brothers and sisters in the shadow," Hahn wrote to Patch in an email.

"We have cast a pall of fear and uncertainty over their lives. Unless we activate our networks, unless we spread our reach and our message across the country to touch new hearts and minds, a comprehensive immigration reform will fail.

"But we are on the right side of history" Hahn continued.

"We know our shared humanity, our shared history, and our shared faith tells us to do the right thing on immigration. 

"And while the national debate for comprehensive immigration reform continues, I remain committed to working with President Obama and my colleagues in Congress to pass a fair and inclusive immigration reform bill that includes a pathway to American citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country who deserve a chance at the American Dream."

Hahn is treasonously wrong. No aid for invaders. That we have been invaded is easily proven. We have been invaded by a hostile nation, with hostile intent by hostile forces has been proven. Consider the facts: 1. The president of Mexico told his people to come here to take back the land we Gringos stole from them. 2. The Mexican government aids and abets illegals of all stripes trying to get into our country. Most recently, they publish an interactive map with videos showing the safest and easiest methods to get here. 3. 27% of federal inmates are illegal aliens(source:GAO) 4. They come here to raid our treasury: 57% collect welfare(source:judicialwatch and us census bureau) 5. They come to steal our jobs. In as much as there are 35 million illegal aliens here and 22 million un and underemployed Americans, and only 4% work in Agriculture and nearly 25% work in manufacturing and construction, it is easy to do the math.(Source: bureau of labor statistics) 6. The number of rapes is due to the fact that the age of sexual consent in Mexico in some states is as low as 9.! According to the Violent Crimes Institute, there are roughly 240,000 illegal alien sex offenders in the US having about 4 victims each. That is nearly 1 million little boys and girls! What to do: 1.Unless we have mandatory EVerify with criminal penalties for employers and welfare and Social Security workers, this invasion will have been rewarded and done nothing to stop it. 2. We must have border security. We know for a fact that Muslim said on the nightly news. It is not broken for the illegal immigrant. It is broken for hardworking, respectful and peaceful Americans who deserve better from our leaders and our government nationals dressed up as Mexicans are coming across our southern border. How many are terrorists? A sane policy would say that, based on our recent past, all of them are potential terrorists. The border needs troops, the fence, electronic surveillance, dogs(yes dogs), and any other proven methods of making our border safe for us and the ranchers who farm on our southern borders. 3. We must adequately investigate the needs of our businesses and allow sufficient new immigrants in to fill those unfilled by qualified Americans. However, we know that there is much cheating that goes on in the H1B and h2A programs. Therefore, no bill should be considered without adequate investigative forces being funded as well to prevent most of the cheating. Our system is broken and it is not what is being.
