[SIZE=2]Iowa Democrats want to fine employers $10,000 for each illegal immigrant they hire. Republicans want to focus on ridding the state of illegal immigrants, so legal residents can find work.

Democrats want to fine employers; I highly doubt those fines would ever get paid. Republicans are focusing on the core of the problem.

Lets see those dominoes knock over Texas and California's cinder blocks. That would be an epic day.

Just so you know, those anchor babies, those by marriage, those by amnesty are citizens. Not illegals anymore. Get that through your head. L-E-G-A-L C-I-T-I-Z-E-N-S

I'd rather have California become its own country.
