Funny how people are all riled up about the latino legal immigrants gaining citizenship to vote. Even going as far as suggesting some of them may have fraudulently obtained citizenship is pretty sad.

BK, how can you sit there and type this tripe when the PROOF of fraud stares you in the face?? Did you not see the 3 different cases that Benicar listed? Do you think those are the ONLY ones? I think it's time you put down the KoolAid before you drown in it...

Okay, now i will erroneously assume that every Legal or naturalized latino immigrant might have fraudulently obtained citizenship. Happy now?

Nobody is assuming that "every Legal or naturalized latino immigrant might have fraudulently obtained citizenship."

That language would lead one to believe that you don't think ANY of them have obtained citizenship fraudulently, which is a very Pollyanna outlook.

You only have to look at that delegate in Calipornia who advertised selling his vote for $20,000,000 (or highest bidder), purportedly, so he could drive Mexican-Americans to vote.

I know . . gas is more expensive in Calipornia.

Besides the blatant prostitution (whoring) of this delegate, it's an interesting difference of perception, and law, because a student following suit of the delegate, advertised his vote on e-bay, with a minimum $10 bid. He was smeared as being disgraceful.

The media came out against him as deserving to be punished.

He was arrested.

[. . one count of bribery, treating and soliciting under an 1893 state law that makes it a crime to offer to buy or sell a vote].
[. . charge carries up to five years' imprisonment and a $10,000 fine].

If the student had been in Calipornia instead, maybe this story would've been different. Obviously there are places where whoring is okay, especially if it's done in the name of political corruption (oops, I meant, political correctness).

But wait, there were States having majority votes other than Obama, which had their delegates go with Obama regardless.
Q: How did that happen?
A: Calipornia paved the way, "how to" buy a corrupt delegate.

Even the title of this article shows how ethnicity now trumps citizenship. When you 'gain citizenship' you're SUPPOSED to become AMERICAN. The sad fact is that most Mexican nationals don't want to become Americans, they just want all the rights of citizenship without all the responsibilities.

That, and the ability to influence future elections for the benefit of those Mexican nationals that will be coming after them...

ya BK, i love how even when these immigrant are navigating the channels of legal citizenship, IT IS STILL SUPSECT in these loony posters eyes!

dam man, some of yall really have it in for these immigrants huh? legal or otherwise!

these people are following the right path, i highly doubt they would provide fake documents to a multitude of gov't agencies (who check and re-check all documents), thus jeopardizing their chances.
someone who is legally attaining citizenship will most likely do everything by the book. at least that is what i would expect or assume.

thinking otherwise is very... telling
