No, there isn't! The current census puts them at 50 million, total total. At least 1/4 or 1/3 are illegal aliens and another segment are too young to vote. How do you figure that is a big voting force when the article itself stated there are way less than 10% that voted? You do know that there are over 300 million Americans altogether, don't you?

Here is an article that reflects the views of most Hispanics on illegal immigration. I don't know what a pro-"undocumented" is, however.

Poll: Immigration splits Americans

Source?...

I want to hear from the released information how you are determining more than 5,000 voters in Colorado were illegal aliens, not any other immigration or citizenship statuses...

GOP says 5,000 non-citizens voting in Colorado a 'wake-up call' for states - TheHill.com

Why should there be any amnesty for people who broke the law???
I just don't get the logic behind all this amnesty crap.

I am not giving Bush credit either.. Those ones whose boots were on the ground are the ones who are going to get a thumbs up from me.
I agree that the U.S. Special Forces personnel are the best - What a way to get a great "Mission Accomplished", spoken from the perspective of a former member of their Navy team...

Like it or not, Obama is our "Commander-In-Chief", and if the mission had failed, everything would have been charged to his responsibility...

President Obama, for his very important part in this, did a great job too...

Would it matter if it was 50%, 90%?

No, it wouldn't.

Here we go again.

Your agenda is more than clear right now. Why don't you just straight up let us know which side you are on.

The point is: people who are not supposed to vote are voting... Including ILLEGAL aliens. Fine if you don't believe it. It is happening and it will continue to happen until the country wakes up.. Including you.

You said "Last Year over 5000 illegal aliens voted in Colorado ALONE"...

It would have been better to use the correct term of "non-citizens" referenced elsewhere...

I feel that anyone registered to vote that is not qualified needs to have consequences for that action, no matter their immigration or citizenship status...

The Democratic representative (from Texas) raises a very valid point that if Colorado has distinct names and addresses (for voter rolls, they would have to), they need to prosecute everyone that has illegally registered...
