That's impossible since NO illegal laborers have a clean record. They broke the law coming in to the country. They are here ILLEGALLY. No amnesty for law breakers period.

I have to respectfully disagree there.

Now; if said children were born to both parents who were illegal and come Jan 1st 2009 no more Anchor Babies would be allowed, I am 100% Ok with that. Simply grandfather the ones born 12-31-2008 and call it good.

For some arcane reason; I suspect that most Anchors alive today would leave with their parents for their respective countries of parental origin---------and, stay there.

If we start on the retroactive scenarios; that fast becomes a slippery slope i.e. penalizing women who had abortions if by some wierd quirk abortion became illegal on a future date, etc.

No problem; I understand your anger and frustration there in dealing with the invasion----------that our useless 'government' does little about.

Using terms like invasion etc doesn't exactly help your cause in the mainstream. It just makes you guys look extreme.

Actually, there are several definitions of invasion. One of them is...

"An intrusion or encroachment."

So, yes it can be called an invasion.

Here's the irony: The so-called mainstream media does not represent mainstream Americans, most of whom are not hostile to the idea that we're being invaded. So, using that term does not really damage our position with most taxpaying Americans who vote.

It does, however, anger the anti-enforcement, self-immolating American minority as well as the Mecha, La Raza crowd (who actually would like to take over the country for "the race")... But, who is trying to appeal to them, anyway?
