Again does not matter what any of us Americans feel. Dems and Repubs in Power don't seem to care what we think, they are both guilty in my opinion, of skirting over this issue. Too many excuses being made on why we should make them legal with this President.

Agreed...and they put themselves in that situation anyway!!!!!!!!

Desempleo cae a su menor nivel en dos años

El INEGI informó que la tasa de desocupación se ubicó en 4.61% durante marzo, frente al 5.38% registrado en febrero.

For those who didn't learn their Spanish yet as you've been instructed to do -- those are unemployment figures for Mexico.

The first is comparing a 5.2% unemployment rate for the first quarter of 2011 with last year's first quarter unemployment of 5.3%. The second is regarding Mexico's falling unemployment rate. 4.61% in March compared with 5.38% in February.

Americans would envy the low unemployment rates that Mexico has. These sob stories are almost a joke, but the sad thing is that high unemployment rates are not lowering the immigration rates, immigration rates went up in 2010.
Wonder how Mexico would feel if we all went to Mexico looking for work? You know, just show up one day by the millions and demand benifits and food stamps as well as citizenship.

I feel for the U.K They have been so generous to immigrants that they are losing their country and culture. My friend's mom is from London and she says that most of the products she loved back in London have Arabic along with English written on them. Sound familiar? We are looking at our future. We see what happens in France when they try to maintain the French culture and the riots break out. We see this in London. So God give us strength when and if we should cut the benefits off for the illegals.

It's probably Urdu, not Arabic. And I lived in various European countries, the UK included, during the 2000s. I was last in London four years ago and saw no evidence of this (mass market products bearing dual-language labeling).

However...

There has been massive immigration to the UK in the last 15 years and it has created a great deal of tension. And the policies of various British governments towards Islamic dissidents laid the groundwork for the extremists at the Finsbury Park Mosque to indoctrinate a generation of British Muslim youth.

I lived in the UK (Newcastle upon Tyne) from Feb. 2001 until Oct. 2008. My current husband is British, as is my new daughter-in-law. While living there during the 9/11 attack we had to be moved to another house for our own protection because a gang of Muslim youths were targeting us. There are entire estates in the North East of England where the only language seen on signs or spoken is one form or another of Arabic/Urdu. The rest of England is just as bad. Birmingham in particular is a nightmare for anyone who is not of Middle Eastern extraction, as is Bradford, just outside Leeds. Entire towns in Scotland have also been over-run and heroin coming in from the Middle East is also tearing the British nation apart. I was glad to escape, as was my husband. My son, American born and from my first marriage, arrived home from the UK last week, along with my daughter-in-law They won't be going back, either. London is constantly dealing with Muslim protesters in the streets and they are very threatening with their violent language.

Our illegals are probably a little better than that.

The biggest lie of this piece. My son speaks barely any Spanish. Yet this dude speaks ZERO English after 6 years here. I guess they communicate with those flags used on air craft carriers to bring in ships? What a load.

Hey look, it's time for dinner.
