Sure they do, the advancement of their own cause regardless of how many laws they have to break to do it.

You are seeing the mass exodus of citizens of poor countries coming to America as direct result of Amnesty... because they think they are going to get Amnesty after they come here illegally.... after all, there is an incentive... Amnesty without the wait or paperwork...

My whole family is Mexican, are some illegal? sure. I listen in to their conversations and they're usually about work/lack of work.

Except to take what is not theirs and to push the Americans to the brink of war.

The fact that you don't turn them in shos that you are not a patriotic American.

The vote breakdown was 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats voting in favor, 156 Democrats, 43 Republicans, and 1 independent against).

The U.S. Senate also passed NAFTA in a vote of 61-38, again with a Republican majority able to push it through by voting in favor of passage.

34 Republicans and 27 Democrats voting in favor, 28 Democrats and 10 Republicans voting against.

Clinton promoted the separate treaties, the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation, NAAEC, and the North American Agreement on Labour Cooperation, NAALC.

As is clearly shown by the signing and the ratification votes, NAFTA is a Republican creation, ...despite efforts to blame Clinton for NAFTA, it is HW Bush, and the Republican majority Congress who 'own' NAFTA.

When we wish to show our appreciation for all the benefits of NAFTA, it's important we give our thanks to the 'right' folks.

So how was NAFTA been such a disaster? Our economy has grown and prospered for over a decade since the signing of NAFTA. Its not easy to quantify its direct impact, but it would be difficult to blame NAFTA on a sluggish economy, since the economy has been healthy by any historical standard.
