It makes even less sense when the reality is there are over 9 million Legal Permanent Residents (with 30% of them specifically Mexican Nationals, and the total number is increasing each year) that are eligible to naturalize, but have not. If some theory that Democrats wanted potential voters, they would be having naturalization clinics and President Obama would be issuing Executive Orders to negate the N-400 fees. Once naturalized, they could vote in the next election.

And make sure you don't wear an American Flag shirt on Cinco de Mayo while in the United States of America.

Additionally, another example of Holder threatening US citizens to attempt to bend them to his will.
The Dcats have to devise some method of getting more votes.

I thought illegal aliens ain't allowed in the US tho Holder and his boys have me scratching my head.
Eric Holder is a national disgrace, his many FAILURES and ineptness at his job would have gotten him terminated in the public sector.

Fast and Furious, his total disregard for prosecuting the Black Panthers for voter intimidation and his countless other lies and blame shifting must be what Obama expects for his administration.

The Supreme Court ruled way back in 1975 that we have to educate all children, regardless of immigration status.

Yeah, well some don't like our immigration laws either. I'm entitled to my opinion on educating illegal aliens in our country just as well. The difference is that I am advocating for change that would have a positive affect on our own citizens while others advocate for things that would have a negative impact on our own citizens in favor of illegal foreigners. See the difference?
