U.S. citizens have been too lenient and complacent regarding illegal immigration. Now we have them trying to show power, protesting on the Capitol grounds.

After Japan was defeated in World War II, a leader said, "We woke the sleeping Tiger." What has to happen before citizens realize how much it is costing to pay for health care and special education for children who do not hear English spoken at home?

Believe the the quote was "awoke the sleeping Giant".......but that was a long time ago.
Yeah.......America "woke up" kicked ass, ended the war, went back to sleep and now lies in a COMA.

For the record: looking at both Arizona and Oklahoma; said 'sleeping giant' is awakening-------and, he is pissed.

In fact; the term for the mass exodus of the illegal immigrants here (most of whom happen to be Latino) has been dubbed the 'Hispanic Panic'------they are terrified.

Evidently; the so-called 'Hispanic' leadership is freely admitting that this crackdown is different than the 'slaps on the wrist' variety in the recent past.

let the burden fall on mexico..

IF.. mr prezzy of mexico is SO worried about his people..
and a country who says they are so rich.. why don't they
get off thier butts and feed thier own!

He.. mr prezzy of mexico, only feels sorry for his people..
for the simple fact of.. WE DON'T WANT THEM.. and neither does he!

It's not that he feels sorry for them.. it's that HE IS worried..
worried that he will not be able to continue to send us his people
who are a HUGE burden ON HIM!

He does not want to take money out of his pockets that are
being lined from remittences.. Here is a mexican.. who had to come
to America to get educated! Comes to America.. gets educated by Americans... then goes back to mexico to help his own people bleed us dry!

Most mexicans who still live in mexico.. came to OUR country to get educated.. gee I wonder why!
