Well why not have all the illegals come to school here. Unfortunately Cali is illegal friendly. They take away from our own children who are born here.

In a class of 20, for example, there might be one or two illegals. Would that be the big hold-up? How beneficial would it be, if they would grow up uneducated? So they have more time on the street?

The easiest way would be to legalize all those who are gainfully employed for a certain time, and who have good references, and then STRICTLY ENFORCE the law. If they KNOW that they can't find jobs, they will not come. And we would finally know with how many newcomers we're dealing with; so far it's only a guess. And yes, we would be collecting more taxes too. And the select communities would also be a lot safer. But no one wants to see it that way.

You mean like the "amnesty" of about half a million of them that got forced down out throats about 25 years ago? With the promise that it was "just this one time, and from now on we STRICTLY enforce our laws" ?!!

Even the dimmest of bulbs must realize at this point, that this is for the dissolution and total destruction of our nation.

MAN, you just saved me from typing about the same exact thing. We were lied to. They cheated us and the friggen' Mexicans never did appreciate it.(Do they appreciate anything? Ever!) Now they're asking for more.

I see it. The Mexicans are taking over by sheer numbers. You can't see that? It is just a matter of time. Soft politicians and an ignorant electorate are to blame. Little to no enforcement of the border has resulted in so many Mexicans and other Latinos here and our antiquated policies allow "anchor babies" who will grow up to vote along ethnic lines.

Some may find this hard to understand. I think most Mexicans are wonderful people and they have great food and customs. It is just that these should be secondary to being an American. And instead of lowering standards we need to insist they meet ours. It boils down to numbers. Can we take on a large portion of the third world and maintain our quality of life?

In 1986, Amnesty was given to approx. 3 million illegal aliens throughout the U.S.. Since "86" those 3 million that recieved amnesty were allowed to bring in approx. 6 million of their family members over the 24 years.

Ted Kennedy was the democrat that pushed amnesty in the 80's. "He" and his fellow democrats were the ones that promised Reagan, if he would sign the Amnesty Bill, that the democrats would "fully fund" what ever the cost would be to close/seal/secure the southern border in order to stop future illegal entries once and for all.

Reagan was a fool to sign the Bill. He was also a fool to believe the democrats would stand behind their promise.

The dems didn't stand behind their promise, once Reagan signed the Bill "Teddy" and the dems refused to fund the money necessary to close/seal/secure the border.

Right now, there are approx. 4 million illegals in CA. today, along with another few million anchor babies, all, in one way, or another, living off the backs of the taxpayers.

If those people recieve amnesty, they'll be able to bring in another 8-10 million or so family members into CA..

How do sane people say it? Oh, I remember, it's not financially "sustainable" to add millions more to the rolls of the CA. welfare system. You can't borrow enough money from China and Japan to support them all and you can't increase CA. taxes and fees enough to cover them all. It's just not "sustainable".

Your taxpayers and businesses are leaving CA. in droves already.

I wrote on this earlier that the hispanics WILL control the state of Calif. in about 10 years. Yes, you white, black & asians WILL be the minority. Lets hope that they WILL have good politicians not like Villaraigosa, the mayor of the city of L.A.
Will they be generous

When Mexicans breed and immigrate themselves into majority status in California, how will they treat white people? will they give them scholarships and jobs? Will they praise diversity and help them get into college?

I don't care what you wrote earlier. Controlling the State and wallowing around sucking up on free government benefits is two very different things.

Why do you think Ca. is on the decline? Everyone is leaving the area who is smart. Let them have it, let them run it into the ground like Tijuana looks. Go to Avalon and Anaheim and look around. Get off the 110 at Gage and look around. Isn't it wonderful? Cerveza por todo. Socal is doomed.

They (dims) realize it, that's intentional, those are future dim voters. It is okay, the politicians will care when all the drunl illegals begin to run over their relatives, some day they will not be able to live above the chit they are allowing to fill this country and drag us down.

Of course more Latinos are enrolling in California schools. There are more of them and more crossing the border everyday. California welcomes them.

Can someone explain to me, a Native American, why the Latino culture seems to discourage education, encourage gangs and promote writing on walls?
