A few thousand protesters hit the streets in Los Angles Wednesday to demand citizenship for illegal immigrants. The protesters hope to influence Congress, which is working on comprehensive immigration reform. …

In Texas, just the debate itself is drawing new immigrants over the border. Juan Mercado lives on border property his family has owned since the 1850s. Immigrants often sneak across there. But since January, the number has tripled.

Oregon Governor (Dem, of course) today signed the bill to allow illegals to get driver's licenses. Gonna cost the state millions every year. But yet, there's no money available for schools, roads, and bridges that are falling apart due to lack of maintenance.

I've been pounding the local reporters about this whenever they have a report about teachers and firemen being cut.

When the U.S.’s own CIC goes to Mexico to promote his food stamp program, how the hell do we expect to NOT see a major increase in illegals crossing? Remember, these illegals (no they are not undocumented workers, they are illegals) are going to be the new voters of the demodummie party. We already have over 30,000,000 illegals within our boarders. If everyone of them voted demodummie, there would never be another election needed. We MUST get rid of the poorly created immigration bill NOW or face the consequences down the road. I can honestly say I am glad to be closer to the end than the beginning of my lifetime.
