Still think that electoral politics is going to solve the immigration issue? Or that being a Democrat means a magic answer to save Latinos once we, as a sleeping giant that everyone keeps talking about, vote? Gracias to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is keeping it real by stepping away from offering a path to citizenship to immigrants.

Well, well wadda ya know . . .? I guess the soaring number of murders, rapes, kidnappings and incursions across our borders and the tanking economy finally awakened the reality of what another amnesty would mean for even the most liberal in our government.

Note which state that Pelosi represents.

Remember my sensing that when California turn against the illegals (most of whom do hail from either Mexico or Central America)------------it will be sudden and savage.

There are more advocates in CA. against Illegal Immigration than you think. It just sounds like the whole state is in favor of them because alll of the dicisions to sanction Illegals in LA. SF ect, and in different cities were made by the Local and State Gov,. None were put up for a vote or decided by the people.
Why do you think so many people are leaving?

I canít say that Iím surprised. I have always believed the notion of amnesty is simply a tactic to appease illegal aliens into submission to continued exploitation. Itís a method to keep the 'slave' labor happy and hopeful.

TRUST and HONESTY are two terms I rarely associate with Nancy Pelosi, however, I do find this article very interesting.

Could it possibly be our leaders in Washington are listening?
