Tan, my brother, I feel left out!

Why didn’t Tan send a letter to Viet Namese, Korean, and other Asian voters to discourage voting by undocumented residents?

Man, he left out my peeps!

    Buddy,
    you need to think before you write. What in the world do you mean “discourage” voters….the letter is only meant to discourage ILLEGAL voters..yes, we NEEED to get rid of them…and because of what happened in the past, illegal Mexicans voted illegally for Loretta Sanchez. So there is a reason for everything, understand? Why is everyone making such a big deal over the letter? Isn’t the letter speaking the truth?? This is not voter intimidation, it is ILLEGAL voter intimidation. Illegal residents are not allowed to vote and if they do, they will get deported or sent to jail. The problem lies in how we all interpret the word “immigrant.” By definition, it means a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence. So in the case of the letter, I believe the writer’s intention is to inform immigrants who are not naturalized citizens..because immigrants here in the US may not be citizens….so what is wrong with the letter?????? Didn’t illegal votes happen before? We should focus more on getting rid of illegal voters…the media is crazy for creating such a drama..What is wrong with speaking the truth? (the letter)

    You said “What is wrong with speaking the truth?”

    Have you read the letter? If so, you know that it contains this paragraph:

    ” you are advised that the government of the United States is installing anew computer system to verify the names of all new registered voters that vote in the October and November elections. Anti-immigration organizations can ask forinformation from this new computer system. ”

    How truthful is that, buddy?

    I totally agree with you that it is illegal for undocumented residents to vote. I have no problem with trying to eliminate that situation.

    I have no problem with anyone who wants to deal with the immigration problem with a REAL solution and not with some half-baked idea that just doesn’t pander to a fringe political base.

    I would welcome that solution from a Republican, a Democrat, an Independent, or a Martian with three eyes.

    So, Mr Anoonymous, I think we are in TOTAL agreement with that issue.

    Tan’s letter had errors of omission that his OWN OFFICE ADMITS that suggested all immigrant voters – even naturalized citizens (Legal Voters) – were subject to legal action. This letter was an issues of legal voter intimidation.

    My question was why didn’t he also send his letter to the other major ethnic minority groups in OC. One being the Asian immigrant population which has been steadily growing in his district for the past 20 years and also has undocumented resident issues as well.

    The whole point of my posting was to state that the limiting of letters to a single ethnic group seems a bit dodgy.

    If the Tan letter is not a problem as you state, why doesn’t the OC Repub Party back him up? Why has the Repub Governor brought up such strong terms such as “hate crime” for this situation?

    I think you should press your issue with the OC Repub Party and the Governor over these issues, then let us know on this little blog here how it all works out.

    Once again I state that I feel that undocumented workers should not be voting, because its illegal.

    PS:
    Regarding illegal residents who were cited as voting for Loretta Sanchez. Were they arrested and prosecuted?
    Wouldn’t that send a message to those illegal residents who have so much to lose by committing a crime such as this?

    I didn’t read the follow up to that story. Also, were other ethnicities investigated in that election? I am asking , because I don’t know.
