So, please explain how the chart you posted addresses my following post.
It was an assumption on your part:

What assumption? How are households with children related to illegal aliens with U.S. citizen spouses? And, how does that relate to the post you quoted?

"Anchor Babies" may not be "anchors" in those instances, as there are more immediate cures to illegal status through their spouse than any children. I'll answer the other posts when I have the opportunity, my "big project" took a little longer today.

I thought something was fishy. I didn't recall posting that, because I didn't, YOU did. Please explain why you changed the quote to appear as if it originated from me?

I am of course referring to the second quote in your post #31.

It's beyond belief! It appears at the bottom of his post #15. Yet, he later changes it to make it appear as if it originated from me. I was initially scratching my head, because I didn't recall posting it. Of course I couldn't recall it, because I didn't post it. Has it actually stooped to this level of deception?

It's corrected now, I'm not really sure what happened (I manually linked it back). The category for a relationship to a U.S. citizen could be lower because former illegal aliens that have "legalized" after a marriage would not be shown. That is still simplifying that the relationship (especially if it involves children) is only to gain legal status.
