Now that Republicans are widely embracing an overhaul of immigration laws , even a path to legal status for illegal residents, will their members in Congress follow through? At first glance, it appears that they just might.

I was visiting a relaive in central university last summer. She took me out to dinner to several restaurants in the general area. I had been there many years before when my aunt and uncle lived in South River. It was then a sleepy little town with little development. Today, the downtown is bustling with Latin American restaurants, shops and other types of businesses. The same is true of Perth Amboy. I realize that all relatively recent immigrants are not Latino or Hispanic, but the large numbers of people of these origin in that area make the idea of mass deportation ridiculous. As a result of a Supreme Court ruling, children who were brought here illegally are attending our public schools. Many are serving in the military are doing so in order to earn citizenship. Central New Jersey i not the only place where Latino/Hispanic immigrants are prospering. The Republican Party, which showed itself completely out of touch with the above described reality, needs to come down from its sublime heights and recognize that what was no longer is. The segment of the population that it represents is shrinking, narrow in its thinking, and elitist. As it stands, it is virtually impossible for the GOP to win a national election. It may well be going the way of the Whigs, whose demise resulted in the emergence of the 19th century version of the GOP. Our country is evolving and the population is more diverse than ever before. Taking a few token candidates from the ranks of so-called minorities is not going to cut it. The anti-mmigrant stance simply underscores the fact that the GOP leadership labors under the misconception that the proletariate will vote for its candidates because they are generationally entitled to high office.

Yep and the Democrats pander to reward people for breaking the law! Too bad that the Democrats know nothing about Republicans and just place their hate on the Republicans which is never true.

I was attempting to point out that there are places in this country that have large concentrations of Latino/Hispanic. people who seem to be vibrant and contributing members of their communities. The perception that all such people are standing on street corners humbly waiting for day labor is an outdated stereotype. My observations last summer caused me to rethink my own attitude. It is irrational to think that millions of people can be arbitrarily swooped up and deported. The last election demonstrated that naturalized minorities are now a force to be reckoned with. The legal gymnastics those who attempt to rectify their status is simply cash for lawyers and a golden goose for government.

I don't believe in "open borders." However, I do believe that what is done is done. Declare a moratorium on immigration from Mexico, South and Central America and put the national guard on the borders.

Yes there are many good Mexicans that are up there legally

But there are also millions of criminal invaders that should be deported or put into a work camp

Once you have a taste of truthful reporting you never go back to mainstream contrived corporate media.

These hosts bash Republicans and Democrats equally because they know both sides are illuminati bought puppets out to screw us.

Give alternative news sources a chance before you knock them. Download these shows to your MP3 players and listen on your way to work or whatever. All you need from mainstream media is breaking news and traffic/weather. You can listen to all these shows on your smart phone as well.

Exposes US Gov Corruption and Global Wide Illuminati Plots

(Skip around, you'll learn something useful)

Exposes Wallstreet and absolutely teaches you how to protect your money from the crooked banksters

http://www.philsgang.com/pgfreeshowarchives.a...

Exposes Secret/Ancient Knowledge Suppressed In Modern History Books and suppressed medical cures/prevention for diseases like cancer, etc. This guy is a medical doctor.

Coast To Coast On Youtube -search "Coast to Coast 2012 Shows" on Youtube and listen or use downloader -This is one example /Or get a CC Witness radio and record AM from your local affiliate.

Connects Bible Predictions/Prophecy to Modern Day Events -How Illuminati uses bible prophecy to plan false flag disasters eg. earthquakes, etc.

http://www.thegospel.com/clients/the-prophecy...

These radio hosts should do a show together or at least make guest appearences on each others shows. They all value truth and liberty in their own way.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

You have to understand that free speech on the net is about to be clamped down on in America -mainland China style.

You obviously have not been to Southern California nor Arizona as there are still many full corners as well as Home Depots lot corners.
There is nothing wrong with Latinos, but we don't reward people that break the law like what happened with the 1986 Amnesty. All it did was encourage more people to break the law and they did that in the millions. It is the racist Latino activists that put a wrong idea about Americans that want to protect America. They lie and denigrate Americans that want to follow the law like sb1070. They portray it as racial profiling when the police are doing the same thing to all Americans of all races. I mean when you are stopped at a traffic stop all drivers are asked for identification, not just one race like the racist Latino Activists want you to believe.

BTW, did you know that "illegal aliens" as marched in the streets want full and complete amnesty for their law breaking?

Correct........

If the convicts would not be well taken care of in the USA then they would just return to Mexico..

So for this prison population reduction plan to work we need bleeding heart liberals who will give the convicts food, cloths, housing and medical treatment for free..........And in trade the convicts vote for them......

This save Mexico billions and billions of dollars..........

Thank you very much....

The immigration policies of the USA are laughed at here by educated Mexicans.......

Most business owners will not hire a returning wet back.....
The reason is if they were willing to break the laws of the USA and steal from the USA then they will steal from me.....

In Puerto Vallarta where they need English speaking workers they still will not hire the returning wet backs except for the time share industry and they just rob and steal also.....

A friend of mine is opening up Subway after Subway stores and he requires new employees to provide him with a detailed list of schooling and pervious work....

He is not looking for their education or work experience but large gaps in either that could have shown they were a wet back. Many criminals that are shipped to the USA from prison buy fake ID and try and return. But there work and school history does not match.........

Most of the smart educated American know that fact to be true; They know that the educated Mexicans are laughing at them while America gets the dregs of Mexican society because those people are fleet of foot. You are right if they do not respect American why would they respect Mexican law. I like your friend's way of verification as it gets a clear answer to their aptitude for truth. Did you know that there was one Mexican on the "Border wars" Nat Geo show that spoke perfect English when he was caught with other wetbacks? It was sad to see that the border patrol was begging him to do it the right way as he had all the tools to become a real American and not live in the semi-existence.
