Hispanic-white achievement gap still wide in education: report - Yahoo! News
Oh...so you are more worried about status, right? social status? hmmmm... As long as they don't take any white or blue collar jobs...Hispanics can remain at poverty level. Okay...I see.

So "yours is wrong and mine is right" because it suits your agenda. How about lets agree to disagree. My link says the research was by Family Research Council based in Washington DC. What was the main source of your findings?

So they think. In the meantime they are all legally deportable.
LOL So you think I'm legally deportable or my family? Get over yourself.

Amnesty or not...there is no way we have the resources to deport millions. Look at the current situation at the border. We don't even have the manpower to protect it. Hundreds are detained at the border, Hundreds inside the states and there is a waiting list to see a judge.... AND that is not even a drop in the bucket. Lets get real, millions will stay, one way or the other.

They will weigh things here, wait and even if no amnesty, they will not leave. Even if you take some or ALL welfare, they will stay as studies have shown.

We will integrate their children like it or not...they are citizens. Even if their parents were deported in mass...their children will return...in masses. They will be speaking their native tongue and I'm guessing they will take time before they relearn English. Along with them, they will bring their spouse, children and possibly parents that were once deported. And how many do you think we will actually deport? 2 or 3 million? What about the other millions that the government will not be able to reach? Think about that. We could have another wave of US citizens and their immigrant families. As I said, an amnesty is unavoidable. Either way, they will be here.
And with no shame whatsover for what they did. Yeah, we need that kind in our country permanently.

Bet me! Ain't gonna happen. Bye, bye illegals. There will be a bloody civil war before that is allowed to happen and I don't even want to see that happen nor do I condone it but there are that many Americans fed up with this invasion.

LOL. mkay. I love how you cry about how pro-immigration reform people should "respect the law". But if these people were pardoned and made legal you wouldn't accept that one bit. NO, a bloody civil war is in order for the laws the anti-immigration reform people don't agree with.

This is probably because people don't like criminal behavior and rewarding others for criminal behavior of their Parents.

There are plenty of jobs in Georgia right now. Why are you being a leech on society? You're not really legal are you?

Wrong! I said I didn't condone it. I just love the selective reading in here. However, I believe the states have the right to fend off illegal invaders if the feds refuse to. How far they can go lawfully to achieve that I don't know.

I would accept that they were made legal but I would never accept them per se and that is my personal right.
