no, but i know what mccain was up to was not any better, if not worse. He had many people involved in his campaign that were very pro-open border to the fullest degree, can't remember the names though off the top of my head.

obama is "saying" he'll pass amnesty, but he may not find it easy with a high unemployment and increasing american anger.

He also promised to restore American jobs. I don't know how he will accomplish that while appeasing the NCLR.

What was said in English campaign ads (little) versus what was said in Spanish campaign ads is markedly different. He's told them he believes in giving them citizenship and he believes in family reunification -- which we all know by now can only happen in the USA.

I think we can guess by the great majority that voted for Obama, they believe him.

Who says the immigrants brought in through family reunification will need jobs? They can live better on welfare in the USA than on hard work back home.

Plus you have to consider what happens to remittances. Once an illegal is given citizenship, how many will want to continue paying $400 a month in remittances when they can just bring those family members here? It's expensive to live in the USA -- how many of us have $400 extra at the end of the month that we could send anyone?
