Robert Vasquez resurfaces to talk immigration with Tea Party group Saturday in Payette

Vasquez, the former Republican Canyon County commissioner who ran for Congress in 2006 and pressed a failed immigration lawsuit that cost taxpayers over $60,000, is speaking on "The Immigration Challenge: Facing Facts & Taking Action."

Admission is free for 10 a.m. event in the auditorium at Payette High School. The sponsor is Payette & Washington County Tea Party Patriots.

Vasquez made his name in politics by bashing establishment Republicans over illegal immigration, including former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig, Sen. Mike Crapo, Rep. Mike Simpson and former Rep. and now-Gov. Butch Otter.

"I am accusing Larry Craig, Mike Crapo, Butch Otter and Mike Simpson of collaborating with the unarmed enemy invading America," Vasquez said in 2003. "All for a vote to stay in office."

Vasquez finished second in the six-way 2006 GOP primary for 1st District Congress, behind Bill Sali, who went on to serve one U.S. term. Vasquez was elected to the county commission in 2002, but fell out of favor with the GOP, failing to be one of three names nominated to fill an Idaho House vacancy in 2007. He briefly ran for U.S. Senate in 2008 and dropped out of a primary contest against former GOP state Sen. John McGee in 2010.

Vasquez pressed a federal lawsuit attempting to apply the federal Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to the immigration issue. Canyon County sued four agribusinesses alleging they knowingly hired illegal immigrants who cost the county millions in indigent medical costs and legal fees. The lawsuit was rejected by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Vasquez also made news saying students at the University of Idaho Law School were illegally representing people facing deportation and other immigration proceedings.

An email promoting Saturday's talk elaborates on the topic:

Should Americans be concerned about immigration & illegal aliens?

Is the immigration system in America 'broken'?

What are the immigration laws? Are the laws being enforced?

How does immigration impact: Jobs? Healthcare? Education? Welfare? Law Enforcement?

Where do your elected officials stand? What can 'We The People' do?

The Immigration Challenge provides an eye opening look at immigration with the answers to these questions and more with factual information from The Heritage Foundation, Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, NumbersUSA & other organizations. U.S., State, & County elected officials have been invited to attend & participate in the Q & A session to follow.

If they get bored during the lie and cry fest, maybe they can go visit the true face of the Tea Party, you know Sara (I may be intelligent, but, I almost finished a whole term as governor) Palin.
Maybe they can go on a field trip and all get a job.

I just changed the parts that work for this article.

How original,

deep thinker.

Here's another comment from the other article!

The Cry'in Towel Convention. Attendees had planned a "team building" softball game, but failed to have adequate numbers of warm bodies. A hop-scotch contest will take place instead.

Works both ways. Hmmm...

I wonder how he will address the labor needs of agriculture

in that area. It would be interesting to see if any farmers attend and what their opinion is.

The talk covers "How does

The talk covers "How does immigration impact: Jobs? Healthcare? Education? Welfare? Law Enforcement?"

Not "how to pander to welfare farmers to keep labor costs at slave wages". That would be a different meeting.

Illegal aliens

are now a huge voting block. Despite the inherent Constitutional illegalities of this situation, politicians use reverse rule of law to further their own agenda.
Ain't America (northern Mejico) great??

all except

for the not being able to vote part.

If we're really concerned about the illegal alien problem, then we need to deal with the jobs issue. Because as long as there's jobs here that illegal aliens can get -- and wouldn't you go bust into Canada if your family was starving and you heard there were jobs there? -- they're going to come here, and no amount of potential punishment is going to stop them. They're already starving and riddled by crime and corruption; what is it we could do that's worse than that?

But the same Legislature that makes all these grandiose claims about the costs of illegal aliens doesn't do anything to make it harder for them to get jobs, because they know how much that would hurt Idaho industries such as agriculture.

Is Vasquez drunk yet?

THE GARGANTUAN TEA PARTY WILL NEVER VOTE FOR OBAMA

It’s been a hard road to bring some sanity to the illegal alien invasion, but there will be no respite from the TEA PARTY. The special interests entities, religion, unions, corporate along with large and small business, will never be allowed to win, against the overall will of the people. Citizens and legal residents want the real border fence built to curtail any more access to our sovereign lands, bringing in the criminals with their drugs. There is no reduction in illegal immigration as the authorities are stating, another invasion is building from Central and South America. Yet the agency that supposedly protecting us is closing down a number of entry ports along our Southern border? The DREAM ACT initiative, which President Obama’s current executive order has assigned, allows the children of illegal aliens to stay. But these students overtime will be able to sponsor by chain migration family members. This can be truly back door amnesty as this happened in the Ronald Reagan signing into law, the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act.

The original amnesty was for 2.5 million people, mostly agricultural guest workers, but through haphazard processing 6 million slipped into America using fraudulent applications. Those millions of people scoffed at the farming employment and slipped into the mainstream stealing jobs in the construction industry, landscaping, entertainment and other services. This led to jobs of low income Americans, with less education losing their employment to people who would take less money. To compete with other dishonest companies professional businesses had eventually to hire illegal aliens, so they were not put out of business. Therefore this competition continues so the builders hire discount roofers, framers, drywall labor in many manual industries.

THIS INVASION CAN BE PLACED IN THE SOILED HANDS OF A CONGRESS, WHETHER THE DEMOCRATS OR REPUBLICANS OVER DECADES OF DELIBERATELY IGNORING IN PROTECTING CITIZENS AND RESIDENTS, AND GIVING EMPLOYMENT VISAS OF AT LEAST A MILLION OF LOW SKILLED WORKERS OVER MANY YEARS. WHEN IS THE SPINELESS IDIOTS GOING TO DEFEND AMERICA FROM PEOPLE COMING HERE UNDER FALSE PRETENSES AND STEALING OUR OLD FOLKS PUBLIC ASSISTANCE, FOOD STAMPS, HOUSING, SOCIAL SUPPLEMENTAL INCOME AND CASH PAYMENTS. GO HOME AND GET YOUR OWN COUNTRY TO SUPPORT YOU. I AM FURIOUS THAT MY TAXES ARE GOING TO EDUCATE ILLEGAL ALIEN KIDS AND YOUR ACCESS TO FREE HEALTH CARE.

DEMAND THAT ILLEGALLY ENTERING AMERICA BE CLASSED AS A FELONY, NOT A CIVIL OFFENSE?

Today I am no longer a Democrat or Republican, but a true Independent, who is now a member of my local TEA PARTY. The Tea Party is YOU and ME, not any political group, but a way to expand efforts in a new political direction. It is not as the Liberal media tries to publicize us, as something like white supremacists? But in my chapter of which there are thousands around the country, we enjoy the opinions and proposals of Americans who are Hispanics of several generations, black people who great grandfather was the ancestors of slaves, Orientals and legal immigrants who came here to make a better life for their family. They realize that uncontrolled immigration is threatening the American way of life, as the foreigners slip around U.S. Customs and Border Protection just enter as a tourist, with no intention to leave.

As of now the Imperial Court of Obama’s administration, led by the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has harassed the state of Arizona. Then Holder’s unceasing pressure to force all 50 states to accept 20 million illegal aliens already settled here, then his new attacks on Texas and Florida. His unrelenting push to stop them from enacting a fair and equitable law, so that no more fraudulent votes can exist from non citizens, who in the past by incorrigible criminals associated with the ACORN project. Some years back the ACORN organization registered anybody who could sign their name. Under the very flimsy, loose law of perjury their canvassers registered everybody and everything, including sadly Mickey Mouse. None of these agendas will gain headway under a TEA PARTY leadership, which will absorb themselves into the House or Representatives and the Senate. The TEA PARTY will have the massive influence to stop the erosion of our alienable rights, as stated in the U.S. Constitution.

Illegal Immigration more than any other issue, has divided the country and the majority of American will not tolerate people who violate the law. But then again, the majority of Americans do not trust any government, whether it’s the Democrats, with a hefty portion of Liberal influence or the Republicans as they have proven over and over again that trust for them also has vanished out the window. Our biggest battle is for TEA PARTY leaders, to substitute many of the incumbents In Washington, state, county and local levels. Tea Party members must topple a majority of legislators in Congress, state governors as Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, Jerry Brown of California, and Mayors as Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles. This country is suffering from a $16 Trillion malaise, brought upon us by both political parties. Billions of dollars being spent to attain votes from illegal aliens, as the Democrats are looking the other way. The Republicans who see the illegal alien cheap labor market for their corporate friends who donate to their campaigns.

We need expedited measures like a fair Tax system for everybody, with no special waivers for the farmers, the sugar producers, the oil companies. More urgently than anything else, is to begin the production of our own oil, natural gas and including the refinement of clean coal, which Obama’s Liberal so-called progressives have prohibited. With an abundance of these energy resources, we would have more than enough for our population, with enough spare to sell to friendly foreign countries. Beneath us are huge deposits that would quickly lower our incredulous federal deficit, which would lower the U.S. taxpayer debt.

TEA PARTY is the only true plan that will ‘cease and desist’ illegal immigration for good. To repeat-- we must replace every politician, Governor, Police Chief or other elected official who pampers the illegal alien invasion, whether they are a Democrat, Liberal or even a Republican with a TEA PARTY leader. Join your local Constitutional Tea Party and remove Obama, his Czars and as a alternative vote for Mitt Romney, but demand he enacts nationwide mandatory E-Verify ‘The Legal Workforce Act’ (H.R. 2885.) This will be a real deterrent of unauthorized workers getting jobs. Warn businesses that once E-Verify is law, they are liable for harsh treatment by the courts. This will stringently replace citizens and lawful non-citizens, after the E-Verify law is underway. As a second enforcement law the Secure Communities (287G) should stay in place, not rescinded by the Liberal accumulation of voices in the department of Justice. Further urgently needed is an amendment the Birthright Citizenship law (H.R.140,) which will save billions of your dollars and bring to a halt a bad misinterpretation of the 14th amendment, crediting children of illegal aliens a right to citizenship, then hence our public welfare system. The amendment would allow only babies of parents where at least one being a citizen gives the child entry into America.

Look towards your own representatives in Congress and see if they are being dictated to by the ‘K” Street special interests, the unions, churches of a whole conglomeration of radical organizations. Is your local political personage against or for, illegal immigration? Did you Congress person vote an ordinance for a Sanctuary City, Dream Act, and Chain Migration or for Comprehensive Immigration Amnesty? Are you aware that a recent study projects a wide ranging Amnesty would cost all taxpayers $2.6 Trillion dollars, when we already owe the foreign investors $16 Trillion dollars. Learn more details at NumbersUSA . Citizen voters should phone Congress at the Washington central Switchboard at 202-224-3121.

Have you viewed the latest doom and gloom development, that numerous cities as Stockton, Mammoth Lakes and soon others will be forced to be file bankruptcy? It’s even possible that the city of Chicago, maybe next on the federal list, owing to years of corruption within the political arena.

So what you are saying is Obama lost the 'we're afraid of the

brown men from another country' vote...ok, I'll give you that.
Can you really be independent when you rely on Republican operatives for all your information?
