Hum, now it is intresting that a person who was considered a running mate for Jimmy Carter, who delevered the key note speach a the Democratic national convention, who was appointed to the immigration commission by Bill CLinton, who is a staunch democrat all of her life,m who has served as both house and senate official in Texas would oppose uncontrolled immigration
Quote:
In 1995, Jordan chaired a Congressional commission that advocated increased restriction of immigration and increased penalties on employers that violated U.S. immigration regulations.[2] President Clinton endorsed the Jordan Commission's proposals.
Now does that make her a traitor to the democrats?
or does that make her a traitor to the Blacks?
And why wont main stream democrats listen to this woman?

What gives

Maybe Jordan was simply another American who 'woke up' to the illegal immigration menace---------------like so many of us here on this Forum.
