You are so right. I really wish more people would know what the illegal invasion is actually about. It is about demographicly taking over another country and of course they hate us, except our money and social benefits.

Okay they go around just saying in spanish they are illegal? I still don't get how you can look at someone and determine what their illegal status is. Could you tell if an irish who overstayed their visa were legal or not? After all they speak english and they don't look latino.

Did you catch the story about the illegals returning to Mexico - permanently, because of the new employer sanctions law in Arizona?

It was a fantastic story
