Illegal Aliens Canvass for Votes in Wash. State

I have always felt that one of the ways you evaluate what party you want to support is to look at who support them and why. This is one group that fervently supports the Democrats. You want to know why.

Reported by AP, Manuel Valdez. (Excerpt)

The 42-year-old is one of dozens of volunteers — many of them illegal immigrants — canvassing neighborhoods in the Seattle area trying to get naturalized citizens to cast a ballot for candidates like Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, who is in a neck-to-neck race with Republican Dino Rossi.

Pramila Jayapal, head of OneAmerica Votes, says the campaign is about empowering immigrants who may not feel like they can contribute to a campaign because they can’t vote.

So the party that is supposedly concerned about foreign money in campaigns, doesn’t mind foreign nationals here illegally serving to influence our elections?

While I don’t mind immigrants who are legally here volunteering, I find it troubling that someone with openly illegal status would be encouraged to participate in a U.S. election.

I wonder where Obama stands on this?

Not really.

We’ve given everybody in the country an over inflated sense of entitlement. Now even the Illegals think they are entitled to be here and influence our elections and they want all the benefits..and government thinks its entitled to our hard earned money to redistribute to whoever suits their purpose. Like Patty Murry said by allowing the Bush tax cuts to extend to the “rich” (who pay 70% of the tax burden already) we will be ROBBING the government!..of what.. their hard earned money..hemm..who’s robbing who? In a few years will we be seeing entitlement roits just like France and Greece? Bet the illegals will be there with bells on.

The hypocrisy is almost laughable
I really wish the feds would haul every single sanctuary city mush-head politician of to prison for violating their oath of office.
We should not allow them to cherry pick which laws of this country to defend.
Only under a corruptocratic regime would this be possible to exist and go completely unchallenged.
And, yes, I mind greatly having illegals going door to door with any opinion what-so-ever about what we do in our country.
