You speak of illegal immigrants to this country as they are a homogeneous group? how can you make that assumption?

You can't believe that all illegal alliens to this country speak and think in one "mind"?

Even in a simmular like group doesn't think as a group...right?

Let me put it this way. Many Mexican Americans and Mexicans here illegally are of that mindset. I didn't mean or imply all of them do.

Are you saying that Reagan and Bush "lean heavily to the left" too?


By the way, in case anyone is really interested in reading the basis of the court's opinion (as opposed to just being outraged), here's all 83 pages of it:

I understand the premise for the ruling, and still believe everyone should be required to provide proof of citizenship when registering to vote. Every person born in this country should have access to their birth certificate, and exceptions can be made for the elderly born at home.

Due to this asinine law, illegal aliens and other non-citizens can easily influence our elections. Illegals are desperate for amnesty, so they will do whatever is necessary to support politicians who promise them a path to citizenship. After all, they violate our laws on a daily basis, so one more violation means nothing.

Our voter registration is essentially based on the “honor system.” As we all know, there is no honor among thieves and crooks. So yes, I am outraged.

As am I. Not requiring proof of citizenship or naturalization in our country to vote really infuriates me much like counting illegals in our census does.

It is sad that people who shouldn't be voting are voting. A politician could preach and promote that they are going to take care of illegal immigrants and the fact that illegal immigrants can vote will put them into office.

A Phoenix Latino civil rights activist is now recommending that illegal aliens vote. They can't register in time for the November 2 election, however. Our elected politicians and bureaucrats are so dumb they can't even run an honest election.

This piece of scum leads off the article with this.....

The Arizona law that requires proof of citizenship has been overturned. Therefore, all Latinos can vote whether they are documented or undocumented. This is great news for the Latino Civil Rights Movement.
Then after rah rah rah (blah blah blah) ends it with this little disclaimer gem

Quote:
I am not advocating illegal activity since Arizona has now made this legal! Remember, Latinos, the future of this country is ours!
yeah right, whatever - the idiot really thinks it's now LEGAL in Az for ANYONE to vote?
