Remember; a severe recession may wind up doing what a bunch of incompetent politicians fail to do--------force out most of the illegals.

They above lawbreakers are continuing to flee Arizona.

Suffice to say: if McCain wins the Republican Primary; good ol' Hillary or Obama are looking better and better.

Amnesty is what all the politicians want.. maybe but for romney.
But the real fact is NONE push the issue of "illegal immigration"... they
would lose votes.. It is a hush hush topic between all of them until after the elections.. It's NOT that voters don't find illegal immigration a big issue.. but if all the ones running are for amnesty.. what does it matter who you vote for.. and it's not being handled by the feds anyway.. states are taking thier actions against illegals.. It's like the feds are even happy that the states are taking care of it themselves.. then they don't have look bad, either way, for or against.. and no votes lost either way...

If i was an immigration hardliner in congress, i would compromise on something this year.Because next year, the dems will increase both majorities in the house and senate. We will also have clinton or obama in the whitehouse. You catch my drift?

Remember the recession----------that alone will eliminate a lot of the illegal immigrants' jobs.

No illegal would dare 'mouth off' if canned from his job--------he has as many rights as any other lawbreaker.

Flying that Mexican flag in the protests two years ago was stupid at best------for the illegals and their enablers.

Note that our governor is a Democrat as well------and, signed the Employer Sanctions Law.

It is probable that Clinton or Obama, if either wins the White House may wind up telling the illegals, etc to buzz off.
