Yep, that's what everyone said following the '06 and '08 elections. OPPS, look what happened in 2010, you might want to rethink that.

Notice when Reyes says something about race, nothing is mentioned?

"U.S. Rep. Silvestre Reyes, D-El Paso, said the new congressional seats should reflect the interests of Hispanics who are fueling the state's growth."

Typical Democrat, always throwing the race card.....and the media says nothing.

Shocker.

Reflect the interests of Hispanics who arre fueling the state's growth? What about all the other NON-HISPANICS Sufferin Suckotash Sylvestre?

I wonder how many of those HISPANICS are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS Suckotash?

This is EXACTLY what the Democrats want. They WANT illegal immigrants here in the U.S. to become legal citizens and vote for Democrats.
Period.
End of Story.

Thank the TRUE Citizens of America for stopping the Dream Act.

Isn't the California governor a republitard?
Arnold something?
Texas also will have a 25 billion dollar shortfall, also run by a republitard? Rick Perry?
These swines will cuty programs that help people instead of cutting bonds from the banks that drove us to point of ruin!
I don't get it, why are republitards being rewarded, when it was their big business cronies' fault for tanking our economy! The republican'ts deregulations helped big business rake in billions of dollars at our expense! They got bailed out while we got shafted by the repugnican'ts!

It probably will not be pretty and may, in fact, be a bloody fight, but, at least, Tom DeLay won't have his nasty little finger in the pie this time!

Arnold is a RINO (republican in name only) he is more of a Democrat with an R at the end of his name.
Just like McCain.

And actually you are wrong, it was the Dumocrats that tanked the economy and they are still doing it.
Bill Clinton (DEMOCRAT) put Jimmy Carter's CRA (community reinvestment act) on steroids in 1995 forcing banks to make loans to people that couldn't afford to pay them back and put people into houses that couldn't afford them.
Don't believe me?
They are still doing it today even though Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are bankrupt.
Watch this video, fact check ANYTHING on it.

Bush warned 17 times since 2001 about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but Barney Frank said there was NO CRISIS along with ALL of the other Democrats involved.

What should be mentioned about his quote? Are you disputing that the population growth in Texas was hispanic? Are you saying their interests should not be representative? Your comment doesn't make sense.

No, I'm not saying the population growth in Texas is not due to an increase in Hispanics.....it more than likely is.
The question is, how many of those people are LEGALLY here?

I don't agree with seperating people by their race.
It shouldn't matter what your color is or where you came from, as long as you are a LEGAL U.S. CITIZEN.....then your interests should be represented. Not for ILLEGALS.

Democrats don't care if you are legal or illegal as long as you vote for them. They only care about getting re-elected into office. Nothing more. Sylvestre Reyes case in point.

Do you care at all that your tax money is going to illegal aliens in Texas?
I do.

Luckily Republicans won in Texas in November.....except in liberal towns like El Paso.
The people will one day realize what illegals are doing to our country and put an end to it.

"U.S. Rep. Silvestre Reyes, D-El Paso, said the new congressional seats should reflect the interests of Hispanics who are fueling the state's growth."

Pickett said, "The good news for Texas, if there is any, is that no matter what flavor you are, Texas' clout on the federal side has increased."

I like Pickets statement better than Reyes - see it is possible to make a racial comment with being RACIST.
