Nobody will ever agree on how it should be worked out. Illegals do not deserve a free pass...they have enjoyed having one for far too long. If they truly want to become citizens, they should have to make some sacrifices, which don't include special dispensations. Paying a pittance of a fine, just won't cut it.

The question is what did B.O. do with the $860 Billion "Stimulus" package we gave him the first term?

You know the one that he and his Chicago thugs promise the Tax payers to keep unemployment under 8%

How's that been working out??

Pelosi's Double Standard on the Minimum Wage

Nancy Pelosi - Hypocrisy, Lies and Arrogance

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

SNOPES VALIDATES THE FACTS BELOW :

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's home district includes San Francisco .

StarKist Tuna's headquarters are in San Francisco , Pelosi's home district.

StarKist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi.

StarKist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the Samoan
work force.

Paul Pelosi, Nancy 's husband, owns $17 million dollars of StarKist stock.

In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage.

This would make Del Monte products less expensive than that of its
competitors.

When the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final billadding $33 million dollars for an "economic development credit in American Samoa "

Pelosi has called the Bush Administration "CORRUPT" and many other things
!!!

How do you spell "HYPOCRISY" ?

SHE'S SHAMELESS....

Pelosi's Use of Air Force Aircraft

According to the documents, which we obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the Speaker's military travel cost the Air Force $2,100,744.59 over a two-year period -$101,429.14 for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.(Lots and lots of alcohol.) The following are highlights from the recent release of about 2,000 documents, which you can read here:

a.. Speaker Pelosi used Air Force aircraft to travel back to her district at an average cost of $28,210.51 per flight. The average cost of an international congressional delegation (CODEL) is $228,563.33. Of the 103 Pelosi-led CODELs, 31 trips included members of the House Speaker's family.
b.. One CODEL traveling from Washington, D.C. through Tel Aviv, Israel to Baghdad, Iraq from May 15-20, 2008, "to discuss matters of mutual concern with government leaders" included members of Congress and their spouses and cost $17,931 per hour in aircraft alone. Purchases for the CODEL included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey's Irish
Crème, Maker's Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.

Steven Camarota, the Center's Director of Research, notes, "There is simply no question immigration makes for a much larger and more densely settled country, but it is not a cure for an aging society."

Among the findings:

If net immigration (difference between those coming and going) unfolds as the Census Bureau estimated in the last set of projections, the nation's population will increase from 309 million in 2010 to 436 million in 2050 — a 127 million (41 percent) increase.
The projected increase of 127 million is larger than the combined populations of the U.K. and France.
By itself future immigration will account for 96 million (75 percent) of future population growth.
The immigrant (legal and illegal) share of the population will reach one in six U.S. residents by 2030, a new record, and nearly one in five residents by 2050.
The Center for Immigration Studies, as well as other researchers, has found that immigration levels have fallen somewhat in recent years. While there is no way to know if the level will remain lower, this change can be incorporated into these projections:
A one-third reduction in the Census Bureau's level of net immigration over the next four decades (2010-2050) produces a total U.S. population of 404 million in 2050 — a 95 million increase over 2010.
Even if immigration is half what the Census Bureau expects, the population will still grow 79 million by 2050, with immigration accounting for 61 percent of population growth.
The underlying level of immigration is so high, even assuming a substantial reduction would still add tens of millions of new residents to the U.S. population and account for most of the population growth.
Consistent with prior research, the projections show immigration only slightly increases the working-age (18 to 65) share of the population. Assuming the Census Bureau's immigration level, 58 percent of the population will be of working-age in 2050, compared to 57 percent if there is no immigration.
Raising the retirement age by one year would have a larger positive impact on the working-age share over the next 40 years then would the Census Bureau's projected level of net immigration (68 million).
While immigrants tend to arrive relatively young and have higher fertility than natives, immigrants age just like everyone else, and the differences with natives are not large enough to fundamentally increase the share of the population who are potential workers.
