Realizing the obvious, that south americans comprise the majority of immigrants to our borders I feel it is also of equal importance that we all be aware that others would like to come here and taint the pot. Our countries icons are being sold out from underneath us by foriegn investors. This is all happening while we squirm around in our own apathetic stew. One day we are going to wake up and find that we need to learn Arabic to buy gas, and groceries, or Japanese to go on rides at Disney.
This will all come about because we could not find any leaders with the tenacity to enact comprehensive foriegn relations policies. We all just sat at home wrapped in our apathy blankets blogging on threads. An inexcusanle substitute for real action. But then I guess your childs after school activities, your overtime, or nieghbors marital crisis may supercede your voting importace.
Did anone postig here take the time to go and vote at thier last local primary election. Do you know the who, when, or wheres of your local elections. This is the process by which we are able to effect change in a country engulfed by foriegn investment. Take some time to find the candidates who support your ideas on immigration and actively support them, lend them a part of your time, help them with monetary support, but support them.

Don't jail the illegals before we deport them! Let's make them do public works projects like working on road maintenance and other infrastructures.

Yes, they ain't seen nothin yet. These invaders are going back to where they came, either walking or in body bags. The revolution is here, this is the time, and the American public realizes they have been sold a bill of goods. The bullsh*t is over and Pelosi and Reids little game has been exposed as traitorous. They used to hang traitors. We would not miss a beat if these two were cooling their heels in a jail cell or gone for good. They were put in this position for what?$4 gas, illegal hordes everywhere, real estate in shambles, rising unemployment, inflation on its way up, and on and on. They are trying to put us in the crapper. Instead, vote these traitors out and out now.

Yes he did......he knew he did not have enough votes to pass it as a Treaty, therefore had it submitted as an Agreement which only required a majority vote by Congress...

Washington DC - A new study by the Federation for
American Immigration Reform (FAIR), Limited English
Proficiency Enrollment and Rapidly Rising Costs,
finds that between 1995 and 2005, the number of
children in our nation's public schools listed as
Limited English Proficient (LEP) increased by some
1.2 million. In 2005, approximately 4.5 million K-12
children in public schools around the country
required special educational programs to help them
master basic English, a 38 percent increase over a
decade earlier. The total bill to the taxpayers for
LEP programs likely exceeds $4 billion annually,
finds the report.
Continued large-scale immigration, particularly
illegal immigration, is the primary factor in the
increase in the LEP student population. FAIR
estimates that some 3.5 million children of illegal
aliens now attend K-12 schools around the country.
Most of the costs for educating LEP students fall on
state and local governments that are already
straining to provide educational resources to their
populations. Between 1995 and 2005, 11 states saw
their LEP student enrollment double, while eight
more saw enrollment triple.
"Education is by far the largest cost associated
with mass immigration generally, and illegal
immigration in particular," commented Dan Stein,
president of FAIR. "These mounting costs for basic
education and special LEP programs come at a time
when polls show that the public is increasingly
concerned about the overall quality of public
education in our country. While every politician in
America promises to improve public education,
government immigration policies continue to compound
the challenges faced by our schools."
The surge in LEP enrollment became a nationwide
phenomenon between 1995 and 2005, as virtually all
regions of the country experienced a rapid growth in
immigrant population. However, six states still
accounted for 69 percent of the LEP student
population in 2005, with California leading the way.
More than a quarter of California students were not
fluent in English in 2005.

WOW, I thought the Clintons were the "working man and working woman's" hero and savior, but Mr Clinton sent tens of thousands of jobs to Mexico? How did he get elected 2 times...and it's no wonder Hillary lost...watch Mr. Obama, I understand he whole-heatedly supports NAFTA. How can he be for Unions and NAFTA at the same time, di they not contradict each other (Unions and NAFTA)? Don't take this as a political "hit", I am not crazy about McCain either. Are we to draw straws or vote for the one who will cause the least amount of collateral damage??
