SO now all the people who have been blaming Bush for everything will sing praises upon him.

Anyway, we voted him out for a reason so now he can just rest along side of Jimmy Carter, we'll take it from he without him.

Note the use of the word IMMIGRANT.

There is a difference between 'immigrant' and 'illegal immigrant'.

Many of our ancestors entered the country LEGALLY.

Yes, immigrants helped build our country.

LEGAL immigrants are welcome.

The main reason I voted Bush out was that he wasn't running anymore.

What was your reason?

there were no laws on immigration until the 1920s so every descendant of anyone coming to the usa before 1920 could be considered illegal.
laws were only introduced in the 1920s based on bias (go read congressional records and comments and you wouldn't believe the racism and other crap spewed out by congress)

don't forget it was congress in the 1860s who debated shipping all blacks back to africa and dump them in liberia.
also don't forget that the constitution only applies to those that signed it. no one alive today ever signed it.

10%+ unemployment. What "gap" in the labor market needs to be filled? I will admit that we have a shortage of qualified politicians. The presidential race is proof of that. Neither party was able to find a qualified candidate. The Democrats even resorted to using an illegal alien. LOL
