Stop living in the past, the overwhelming majority of illegals came in yesterday or before that. They aren't relevant to the discussion anymore.
They're not illegals anymore, because that happened in the past. So now they're just Hispanic Americans; a soon to be majority.
Your remarks are getting lame and ridiculous, you're just grasping at straws now and getting desperate. Whether one arrived illegally 10 years ago or yesterday according to our laws they are still illegal TODAY.

Show me where these Hispanics here illegally today became citizens. Were they handed citizenship papers once their feet hit our soil? First I heard of it. You do loves lies and fantasy, don't you? Hispanics will never be the majority in this country because illegal immigration is about to come to an end. Why are you so-anti-American? Are you also that self-hating white person in here?

Illegal Immigration upsets the balance of Legal Immigration. Would we have really let 6.3 Million Mexicans enter our country legally over the past 27 years? The answer is no and therein lies the problem.

Yet we continue to let in over 900,000 Legal Immigrants a year which upsets the control of our population which currently stands at 315 Million people. You factor in the "Chain Migration" act and our population will almost double by 2050 or sooner.The end result would be the United States will become just another third world country

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in. years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and. into the sunshine of America".

May 17, 2007.

Ted Kennedy -- Senator from Massachusetts.
Member of the Democratic Party.

Speaking on Thursday, Obama said,“All too often, we’ve seen a single senator or a handful of senators choose to abuse arcane procedural tactics to unilaterally block bipartisan compromises or to prevent well-qualified patriotic Americans from filling critical positions of public service in our system of government.

“It’s brought us to the point where a simple majority vote no longer seems to be sufficient for anything, even routine business through what is supposed to be the world’s greatest deliberative body,” Obama said.

The president acknowledged that “neither party has been blameless for these tactics” which have developed over the years, but “today’s pattern of obstruction, it just isn’t normal.”

“It’s not what our founders envisioned – a deliberate and determined effort to obstruct everything no matter what the merits just to re-fight the results of an election is not normal, and for the sake of future generations, we can’t let it become normal,” he added.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

But eight years ago, in April 2005, President Obama warned against doing exactly what he supports now. Here's some of what he said then:

The American people sent us here to be their voice, then-Senator Obama said in a floor speech. "They understand that those voices can at times become loud and argumentative, but they also hope that we can disagree without being disagreeable...

What they don't expect is for one party, be it Republican or Democrat, to change the rules in the middle of the game so that they can make all the decisions while the other party is told to sit down and keep quiet. The American people want less partisanship in this town, but everyone in this chamber knows that if the majority chooses to end the filibuster, if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate, then the fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only get worse.

Now I understand that Republicans are getting a lot of pressure to do this from factions outside the chamber. But we need to rise above the ends-justifies-the-means mentality, because we're here to answer to the people, all of the people, not just the ones that are wearing our particular party label...

If the right of free and open debate is taken away from the minority party and the millions of Americans who ask us to be their voice, I fear that the already partisan atmosphere will be poisoned to the point where no one will be able to agree on anything. That doesn't serve anyone's best interests and it certainly isn't what the patriots who founded this democracy had in mind...

On Thursday, Obama said that in the 60 years before he took office, only 20 presidential nominees to executive positions had to overcome filibusters, while nearly 30 have been filibustered in the five years since he took office.

Obama also complained it took nearly two and a half times longer for his judicial nominees to receive up or down votes on the Senate floor as those of President George W. Bush. Also, four of Bush’s six nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia – the nation’s second highest court – were confirmed, while four out of Obama’s five nominees to the same court “have been obstructed,” he said.

“So the vote today I think is an indication that a majority of senators believe as I believe that enough is enough,” he added

Those who came in illegally yesterday or before that is in the past and no longer relevant.
It's the Census Bureau which predicts a Hispanic majority across the southwest by 2020 and a Hispanic majority in the US by 2040.
I you have a problem with that, I'd suggest you take it up with them.
Just don't bring up the 2010 census, because that's in the past...

No, I don't live in the past you do for the umpteenth time. I am not anti-Hispanic-American as they are citizens of this country just as long as they respect our laws. Illegal alien Hispanics and all other illegals are lawbreakers. Are you anti-laws and pro-lawbreakers? Apparently so!

Keep dreaming your wet dream the only way that Hispanics will become the majority in this country is via continued illegal immigration and that's going to stop. Why are you salivating over a Hispanic majority in this country anyway? Would you also be salivating over a future non-Hispanic Mexico? Of course you wouldn't because you're a damned hypocrite and a racist.

Because I know how much it absolutely terrifies racists like you to think you'll be in the minority. Your almost juvenile insistence that it's not going to happen- I can see you stomping your feet and clenching your fists!

Even without giving amnesty to the illegals, Hispanics will eventually be the majority in America. They are younger overall than whites and have a higher birthrate than whites.

Whether it takes 10 years or 20 years or 30 years, it's only a matter of time.

Guess it is racist for Americans (not just whites) of all skin colors and races to lose this country's identity, culture and language via ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION but not racist if the same thing were to happen to Mexicans in Mexico? Yes, hypocricy rules here and so do the childish insults.

I don't give a damn about skin color or race it is about the above.

What is ironic is that these ethnocentric Hispanics aren't viewed as racists for putting their ethnic group above our immigration laws though by these same hypocritical people in here.

American is the common internationally accepted term to describe U.S. citizens. Mexican citizens call themselves Mexicans not "Americans". What a dufass!

America isn't losing its identity; it's just changing as Americans change.

If you're so worried about what happens in Mexico, feel free to move there. I'm sure they'd welcome another racist old white geezer with open arms...

I knew many Mexican citizens who proudly called themselves Americans.

In fact, there are MILLIONS of them living in the US right now.

If you are referring to the 1986 amnesty that Reagan signed it was a mistake back then just as it would be a mistake today.

Your family members employ illegals?
So you are "sick of pandering" to them, but obviously you don't mind hiring them for the cheap labor.
Isn't that just a tad bit hypocritical?
They don't own the company's. They manage them... They are forced to employ them, and if you know anything about HARRY REID, he places illegal employment in front of legal because illegals will work in the Desert. That's it. They are horrible workers and constant pains in the arses.
