My support for the Dems is based on the positions they take on certain issues and the type of SCOTUS justices they tend to nominate.

Otherwise I only vote for the Dems to keep the GOPasaurs out of office.

Which explains why millions of Hispanics keep coming to America to make a better life for themselves.
Not many undocumented immigrants want to go to Michigan, cold, no jobs, and just another slum state in the rust belt.

OK so you're a partisan, I don't agree with you any more than I agree with Sean Hannity. As far as appointing supreme court justices, I thought Obama's appointments of Kagen and Sotomayor were a travesty. These two are hard core political partisans not impartial judges interpreting the law. That's the problem with our justice system. It's all political and no justice.

Actually Michigan is quite lovely as long as you're in the northern 2/3rd of the state.

I don't want ANY more people coming up here; legal or otherwise.

No more so than Alito & Scalia & Thomas.

Our SCOTUS has always been politicized.

True, but there isn't much anyone can do about it. It's been like this for 235+ years. Parties come & go, but the people pretty much split into 2 or 3 political philosophies.

Electing judges/justices is no solution; we do that in Michigan and our Supreme Court is as partisan & political as those who are appointed.

It's the nature of the beast.

I read about heads rolling on the floors of Hotels in Cancun and people getting shot. This is close to the border so its always in newspaper every day.

I don't really think our founding fathers intended for our judicial system to be a political volleyball. The whole idea of checks and balances would suggest the founders were afraid of politicizing government, as well they should have been. Just because self serving egotists from both parties have turned our government into a political money and power game doesn't make it good or right.

Mexico is a beautiful country which begs the question, why can't the people who were born there exhibit the same kind of energy to fix their own country as they do trying to force our country, where they don't even belong, to cater to their demands? Now go home and make Mexico a safer place for me vacation in.

Yep, but it's in the lower 1/3rd of the state which everyone with even half a brain avoids.

If I have to drive out of state I go up through the UP to either Wisconsin or Canada just to avoid getting anywhere near there.

Probably for the same reasons immigrants have come to America for the past 2 centuries instead of fixing their own countries.

My ancestors left Europe to get away from all the people and the constant ethnic & religious wars. Many other immigrants left because of govt corruption or persecution. Others left because of overpopulation, rampant poverty, or famine.

The only real difference is most previous immigrants to the US entered our country legally; though it should be noted many of them left their home country illegally.

We share a 2500+ mile land border with a 3rd world nation. It's not surprising we have an illegal immigration problem.

There's not one person in America that's 100% American, that includes the Native Americans. All are immigrants one way or another.
