The ONLY ethnic group where Romney lead was white men. "Republicans have won the white vote in every presidential election since 1964, and that continued Tuesday with Romney beating Obama by 20 points, 59 percent to 39 percent, according to exit polls. Obama won 80 percent of the minority vote, which, besides Latinos, included African Americans, 13 percent of turnout, the same as 2008, and Asian-Americans, who were 3 percent of the vote, up a point from the last election. President Barack Obama on Tuesday won a whopping 71% of the Latino vote, up from 67% in 2008. By contrast, John Kerry only managed to get about 53% of the Latino vote in 2004 when he lost in his bid to unseat President George W. Bush, according to publicly available exit polls. In Colorado, he captured three-quarters of Hispanic voters, up from 61 percent in 2008. He also improved his Hispanic performance in Florida, a result that included dominance of the heavily Puerto Rican swing precincts around Orlando and the election of a Cuban American Democrat to Congress, symbolizing the end of the GOPís decades-long lock on that community. In 2012, the share of the Latino vote rose to a record high 10%, a number thatís doubled in the past 16 years. President Obama won about 8.4 million Latino votes, using a rough calculation based on exit-poll data. Romney captured no more than 3.44 million votes. In Iowa and New Hampshire, states without big minority populations, Obama won by gaining the support of nearly six in 10 women. Obama won 71% of the Asian-American vote. From the exit polls, President Obamaís support from men slipped a few points from 49% four years ago, but women supported the president over Romney by 55% to 44%."

Illegal Aliens Receive Billions in IRS Tax Benefits

Friday, 23 Sep 2011 05:17 PM

By James Walsh

On July 7, 2011, the U.S. Department of Treasury's inspector general for tax administration issued a startling report entitled "Individuals Who Are Not Authorized to Work in the United States Were Paid $4.2 Billion in Refundable Credits."

No wonder the nation's finances are in turmoil.

******It is clear that unauthorized aliens are filing ITIN tax returns with fraudulent data.******

The Treasury report found that "One common type of fraudulent refund involves taxpayers fabricating a Wage and Tax Statement (Form W-2) that shows excess withholding and results in a tax refund."

Oh your family arrived through Ellis Island. There were no immigration laws in place at the 1800's. People just bought a boat ticket and arrived here at the welcome center at Ellis Island unannounced.
It was quite a simple process. There was a brief medical exam that lasted an average of six seconds then there were 29 questions to answer. The whole process took between two and four hours and more than 98% of people were allowed to stay.
If we built welcome centers on the border today and told people that there was a 98% chance they would be admitted within a few hours time, do you really think we would have any illegal immigrants?
We allow in over 900,000 Legal immigrants a year!

Our current population is around 315 Million.

How many more will make you happy??

The line to enter our country starts in theirs not ours.!

Why do you think we have immigration laws?

For people like you to ignore them? lol

The inscription at the base of the Statute of Liberty concludes, "I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" It says nothing about welcoming people who bypass our entry doors by climbing walls, swimming rivers and sneaking under border fences.

"Based on Census Bureau estimates, the nationís white population, which was 85 percent in 1960 and 63 percent in 2011, will drop to minority status, about 47 percent, in 2050. Latino population, only 3.5 percent in 1960 and 17 percent last year, is projected to rise to 29 percent by then, while Asian-Americans, less than one percent 52 years ago and 5 percent last year, is seen as rising to 9 percent in 2050. The trend of fast-rising Latino population is happening in other traditionally Republican states such as Arizona and Texas."

Illegal Immigrants Dump Trash on Arizona

I've been thinking about Kindergarten lately, and the trash dumped on our
borderlands by illegal aliens. The connection isn't as tenuous as it might
seem, and I'll get to it in a moment, along with a modest proposal to deal
with this huge problem.

First, a question: Have you had your holy-smokes moment yet regarding our
illegal-immigration crisis? If not, travel to Arizona's border region, and
go off-road to the game trails, mountain passes and grassland flats that
make this area so magical.

In many places, the magic is gone, lost beneath piles of garbage.
