Well that's the way it's been run for 3.5 years. And some wonder why we're so divided among ourselves.

Yeah, this diversity crap and celebrate differences is killing us.
And the resulting PC and name calling is just over the top these days.

I'm either a bigot, racist, homophobe or zenophobe these days..all for voicing an dissenting opinion.

Seriously!!

Because of this move I'll be requesting an absentee ballot from FL to be shipped up to MA where I'm living through the end of the year.


From the mortgage crisis to immigration...I have to applaud Obama

These 20-30 year olds were kids when brought here by their parents

They can still go home. Trust me; the cops WILL look for something to nail those Dream Act "kids" for something, especially if 1070 here in Arizona passes the SCOTUS.

Given the ineptitude of the federal government, I doubt there will be a thorough verification process. Fraud will be rampant, and there will be no oversight, just like other visa programs. Remember, these are the same agencies that admit they don't have the resources to even monitor current visa holders. Now, they will have at a minimum 800,000 more. It will be a free-for-all, and a travesty of monumental proportion. I anticipate a lot of finger pointing, because no one will want to accept responsibility for this debacle.

True. I can see an incentive for young adults to cross the border in short order. It could turn into a free for all.

We won't see the effects of this now but will in a few years.

Maybe some of them have kept the reciept you get when you vote from back in the 2006 midterms?
