It is really a tricky one for the Republicans. If they disagree with Obama’s Immigration Reform, they risk a chance of even bigger isolation from the Latinos. If they support the bill, they might simply be helping the Democrats’ courses, who are far more popular among the Latinos. The Republicans may have just found themselves between the devil and the deep blue sea. They need some time to rebuild badly abraded relations with the Latinos. Unfortunately time is what they don’t have.
I have lived in several countries across the globe, largely as an immigrant. Based on my immigration experiences from all over the places, I would suggest that people of similar ethnic grouping live together and not emigrate. I did not mince words in my book titled ‘Evicted From My Space’.(At leading online bookstores)

Republicans can rest assured that no matter how they decide to run with this inane reform, hispanics will still lean Democratic as they have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats in every election during the last three decades. Nothing, I repeat nothing the republicans do will change that mindset.

The question to be asked, how does the GOP gets itself into this predicament? and the answer is simple, this is a band that only plays the base music.

Your theory s moot. Look at the Democratic party of the early 1900's south when it was all racist and stood for the KKK. Times changed. Democrats changed and today Blacks vote mostly for Democrats.

When Republicans grow up and start appealing to Hispanics and all other minorities then they'll become a party of "We the People".

Until then, Republicans can enjoy their demise.

Perhaps if "We the People" weren't standing in line with our hands outstretched for even more "freebies" the hard working Americans pay for there wouldn't be so damned many Democrats.

it's NOT an issue about "immigrants". it's an issue of ILLEGALS.

do you understand the difference?

ILLEGALS are CRIMINALS.

the pro-illegals want to allow 70+ MILLION illegals via another amnesty.

no country has ever done that before without dire consequences.

imagine if thailand, iran, or any other country lets this happen? a better term for what it would be is - INVASION.

Every right wing tea party republican that I know is on some form of government assistance program. The ones who are on SSDI have medicaid, the ones on Social Security have medicare, and the ones who do work earn so little money that their children get free lunch at the public school. The biggest talibagger in this town hasn't held a single job since 1969 when he came back from Vietnam and started drawing 100% disability from the Army for being effed up in the head.

Listening to government leaches beaching about government spending is pitiful and disgusting to us hard working liberals.

I spent 45 years working in union factories.

You don't even want to talk to me about hard working liberals.

It was the liberals that created all the damned programs.

By the way, those on Medicare pay premiums for it, just like any other insurance policy.

And why did they do that? Because it was a republican budget cloaked as Obama's.

“The Mulvaney budget was supposedly based on President Obama’s budget, but it really wasn’t,” said U.S. Rep. Brad Miller, a Raleigh Democrat.“President Obama publicly urged that Democratic members vote against the Mulvaney budget as an impostor.”

Sequestration: How would it impact your community?

(See the full rundown on the hardest hit states by category at the link at the bottom)

Hardest hit with cuts to Education:

California would lose $87.6 million in funding for primary and secondary education, as well as $62.9 million in funding for education with disabilities. The number of students who would no longer be served is 187,000; meanwhile, 1,210 teacher and aide jobs would be at risk and 320 schools would lose funding. The White House also says 8,200 children would lose access to Head Start and 9,600 low-income students would lose access to work-study aid.
Texas would lose $67.8 million worth of funding for primary and secondary education; 172,000 fewer students would be served. The state would also lose $51 million in funding for teachers, aides and staff who help children with disabilities.
Florida would lose $54.5 million in funding for primary and secondary education, putting 750 teacher and aide jobs at risk.
New York would see cuts of $42.7 million to primary and secondary education, and 4,300 kids would lose access to early education.

Besame, besame mucho,
Each time I cling to your kiss, I hear music divine,
Besame mucho,
Hold me my darling and say that you'll always be mine.
This joy is something new, my arms enfolding you,
Never knew this thrill before.
Whoever thought I'll be holding you close to me,
Whispering it's you I adore.
Dearest one, if you should leave me,
Each little dream would take wing and my life would be through.
Besame mucho, love me forever and make all my dreams come true..
Besame, besame mucho,
Como si fuera esta noche la ultima vez.
Besame, besame mucho,
Que tengo miedo tenerte y perderte depues.
Quiero tenerte muy cerca mirarme en tus ojos estar junto de ti.
Pienso que tal vez ma¤ana estarte muy lejos muy lejos de ti.
Besame, besame mucho,
Como si fuera esta noche la ultima vez.
Besame, besame mucho,
Que tengo miedo tenerte y perderte despues.
