I've said it before and I'll say it again. The majority of Republican politicians are fighting illegal immigration and the majority of the hispandering career Democratic politicians are fighting the Republicans fighting illegal immigration. These left wing hispandering career Democratic politicians hope to engineer an amnesty for all of these illegal alien future Democratic voters, if amnestied. Maobama must be smacking his lips at the thought of a one party American left wing political system.

However, despite the horror of the deed, it clearly reflects the mounting frustration that most taxpaying Americans are currently feeling regarding the trampling and curtailment of our constitutional rights and freedoms by too much immigration - primarily the economic ramifications of rampant illegal Mexican immigration within the United States.
It is an issue that is steeped in political rhetoric and positioning and is something that our politicians on both sides are advocating for votes and for the continuance of their parties to stay in power.
Only now, under the current administration, is the border fence being constructed in specific high traffic sections but not in entirety across our southern border.
It is likely this is being done now as a progressive olive branch to the American people and a prelude to the Obama administrationís presidential campaign promise to Latino groups of granting amnesty or a path to citizenship to the likely 30 million illegal Mexican immigrants - yes, thatís 30 million folks, and probably more, currently living in the United States.

The time bomb is ticking. Obama's political aspirations will be the least of his worries if he doesn't side with the majority of the American people who are against amnesty by any name.

How often does Obama ever listen to the people?

If he tries to pass it ba bye career. 12-30 million based on the current "voting" percentage won't cover almost the same amount of people who've lost their jobs in this recession/depression.

12-30 million reduced to a few hundred thousand that are willing to pay a fine, learn English, can prove they are working and haven't broken any laws. It won't be many.
