No it won't be America's non Latino kids it will be America's high standards and natural resources .

This will include America's "Latino" Kids also they will suffer as much as everyone else.

Now if you want to say we will become an extension of Latin America with it's low standards-UNREAL corruption,etc than I agree .

The new group's coming don't seem to want to assimiliate .

Well, give the lady credit for at least being honest. She DID admit that the "journey" wasn't finished yet....and she DID admit that 'we' still had a lot of work to do...right? So if we all get together and let her know we're NOT going to 'finish' the journey...and NOT going to continue with that 'work'.....she really won't have TOO much of a 'comeback', I guess......

As far as health care for citizen's who do not have it -better public transportation - cheaper prescrition plans for elderly among other ideas he has .
If amnesty is given to million's its more than only 12 million .
12 mill is the low low estimate the census gives and a joke .

All his plan's he can kiss good-bye unless he can grow money on tree's .
You are right. Prior to the 1986 amnesty, it was estimated that 1.5 million illegal immigrants would be eligible. Over 3 million showed up when amnesty became available. I am sure the 12 million figure is a lowball estimate, too.

12 million is a joke it's what people are told.
I say 20 mill only because the Hispanic media said that 2 year's ago now they thought best to low ball it and go with 12 .

IMO even 20 is low balling it .
As you know most aren't going to fill out census reports . Think 12 mill did thus 12 mill seem's to be the number used.

Hispanic media is for most part pro illegal but recently began to low ball number's and imply low key might be best for now.

The illegals already have free healthcare -- so is Mrs. Obama promising it to citizens, too?

I wonder if she would be receiving a standing ovation from the Hispanic Caucus if she were promising amnesty and benefits for 12 million Norwegian illegal immigrants.....

Uh, yeah.
