America's largest minority group and fastest-growing ethnic group lags behind others in aspects of American life.
- Forty-five percent of young Hispanics were enrolled in college in 2006, compared with 49 percent of blacks and 61 percent of Anglos.
- Hispanics ages 15 to 19 had the highest birthrate of any group in 2005. There were nearly 105 such births per 1,000 for Hispanics, 61 for blacks and 26 for Anglos.
- In 2005, only 10 percent to 30 percent of eligible Mexican immigrants became U.S. citizens, compared with 50 to 65 percent of European immigrants and 65 to 70 percent of Asian immigrants. Mexican immigrant applications for citizenship jumped nearly 50 percent last year, partly because of Hispanic organizations' push for citizenship and a rush of people trying to apply before higher fees took effect.
- Less than a third of Hispanics volunteered for neighborhood or civic groups, compared with 38 percent of blacks and 40 percent of Anglos.

Shout U.S.A., your team name, your school name, your city and state name a the the top of your lungs and if the coach, officials or other brain dead morons don't like it find a used jock strap and insert it in their mouth, aquaint them with the 5 defenders of the U.S.A.
via your right or left hand upside their head or whatever means necessary to stand fast for your country and your rights.
Enough is enough already.
It is one thing to work towards improving the country within the framework of the Constitution; a totally different matter to throw out Constitutionally guaranteed rights depriving American Citizens priviledges in an attempt to cause change through intimidation and corrupt application of force and rules.

You can't touch the immigration problem without talking about the mexican.
We need to build military bases along the mexican border so they can be patrolled and control.
our immigration laws are lax ! Compared to the mexican immigration laws !
the mexican government actually hand out pamphlets to show its people how to cross into the United States illegally.
So they can get a job in the United States and send the money back to their families in mexico.
We need to start verifying recipients of any federal aid, driver's license and enrollment into any schools.
E. verify needs to mandatory for employment in the United States.
Also we need to reevaluate birthright citizenship, this has been interpreted wrongly
birthright citizenship was only meant for Negro slaves and American Indians not any foreigner that came to our country pregnant!
With these simple steps the illegals can no longer hide amongst us in the great numbers they are presently.
They will Self Deporting back to mexico on their own with no cost to us the US citizens.
We Do need to set up a workers visa program for the unskilled labor the mexicans have to offer.
We certainly cannot give amnesty again !
This was a mistake Reagan made feeling sorry for his mexican housekeepers and gardeners.
But of course they were probably very decent people individual, unlike the present population of illegals

Mexico continued to be the leading source country of unauthorized immigration to the United States," according to the DHS report, noting that Mexicans made up 59 percent of the group, with 6.8 million believed to be in the country
States along the southwest border with Mexico topped the list with the most immigrants illegally in the country, with about 2.83 million in California, followed by almost 1.8 million in Texas, the DHS Office of Immigration Statistics report said.
Florida was a distant third with 740,000. The biggest percentage increase was in Georgia from 220,000 in 2000 to 440,000 in January 2011, according to the report.
Obama, a Democrat, has sought to block some tough new state laws aimed at pushing out illegal immigrants and he has urged the U.S. Congress to pass a comprehensive package of immigration reforms, but that effort has gone nowhere.

what could you do with $1,1170.00 back in your pocket or purse!
This is not include the cost incurred by your town or city needing a anti-gang task force.
the disruption in the classrooms from these illegal's
classroom sizes increasing not allowing teachers to give individual attention to our children.
turning schools in the virtual prisons with metal detectors and security guards and police officers present at the beginning of school and when the schools are let out. To deter the violence from these illegal's.
all the bilingual documents needed in the schools and government.
all the bilingual interpreters needed for police work and government work.
I for one do not want a single penny going to these illegal's.
the true cost of illegal's to our country is Staggering!
we must make it Difficult and Uncomfortable as Legally Possible for these illegal's to stay in Our Country!
We must let our government officials know we are fed up with their pandering for the vote of this illegal population.
No more Sidestepping this issue!
Deal with this issue!
Reevaluate Birthright Citizenship!
Absolutely No Amnesty for illegals!

Nugent said during his headline set at the massive Republic of Texas Biker Rally.
There's an American Dream
There's no French dream.
There's no Cuban dream. There's no Spanish dream.
"Is there a Mexican dream, except 'Get the @#ck out of Mexico?
I can't blame you.

When someone enters this country illegally
then they become a criminal and should be prosecuted as such regardless of the reason they came.

it would be cheaper to just give each mexican family $20,000.00 just to have them move back to Mexico and never return ,then to pay the cost of dealing with them over the years to come .

The cost of amnesty:$999 billion.
The cost of attrition by enforcement: as little as $14 billion.
Amnesty would cost up to 70 times as much as enforcing existing law.
$999 billion cost of Amnesty (Mass Legalization)
