No, only citizens, it dosnt matter where they are born. I hope the ballots stay English too. Remember, they took the non English speaking Native children and made them go to non Native speaking schools, they werent allowed to speak their own language. Encourage one language, they did before.

American Citizens should only be the ones to vote. Unfortunately what happened in 2008 will happen again and it will be worse. You know this President will stop at nothing for a vote.

The American thing to do is to allow only US citizens to vote. It's the highest law of our land, dimwit. Illegal aliens are legislated against by US Congress and aren't even supposed to be here. They stole their presence here, so they are here only because they are criminals and don't respect US law.
Arrest, detain, and deport all illegal aliens. Get them OUT of our country and KEEP them out. THAT'S the American thing to do according to our just, valid, sovereign laws.
Obama does not follow laws.

seen on last nights news showing the voting process in mexico.

you have to have a voter card, then the poll workers look up your number which also has your picture on it.

seems that country even knows how to control voter fraud and is at the very least trying to stop it.
if they can do elections like that why can't we.

If they are sneaking in and entrenching themselves in this country without our permission, we want them removed...period. We want the laws already on the books enforced. It would seem that the myth they perpetrate about coming here for a better life is just that, a myth. If they are so poor, how do they manage to pay a coyote thousands of dollars multitple times, each time they get deported and return again and again? Don't you thik that money would be better if it were spent on the family at home???

Yes further lower the value of citizenship. Make the right to vote a useless exercise.

hypocrite much? Mexico ruthlessly enforces their immigration laws, why do mexicans turn a blind eye there?

And BTW, Hispanics here are their own worst enemy...

HISPANICS IN AMERICA

America's largest minority group and fastest-growing ethnic group lags behind others in aspects of American life.

College enrollment

- Forty-five percent of young Hispanics were enrolled in college in 2006, compared with 49 percent of blacks and 61 percent of Anglos.

Teenage births

- Hispanics ages 15 to 19 had the highest birthrate of any group in 2005. There were nearly 105 such births per 1,000 for Hispanics, 61 for blacks and 26 for Anglos.

Becoming citizens

- In 2005, only 10 percent to 30 percent of eligible Mexican immigrants became U.S. citizens, compared with 50 to 65 percent of European immigrants and 65 to 70 percent of Asian immigrants. Mexican immigrant applications for citizenship jumped nearly 50 percent last year, partly because of Hispanic organizations' push for citizenship and a rush of people trying to apply before higher fees took effect.

Civic involvement

- Less than a third of Hispanics volunteered for neighborhood or civic groups, compared with 38 percent of blacks and 40 percent of Anglos.

No, and they shouldn't be allowed to remain here, and birthright citizenship needs to be abolished. Ti even broach this question is insane.
