I'd think that figure is for just LA -
Yeah I agree, there has to be atleast 1 million illegal immigrants living in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, considering the fact that there are so many neighborhoods in the L.A metro area where you rarely hear the English language being spoken.

Last I read it was right at 3 million.

That sounds a lot more realistic. "Legalize LA" - I'd rather not, to be perfectly honest. There are enough legal citizens and immigrants in the city, as well as the whole state, and everyone will be so much better off when the illegals leave. It will free up over $3 billion a year for the state from the education budget alone.

With very limited resources, water rationing, etc. we cannot survive as a state if we don't eliminate the birdfeeder and all the squawking birds flapping around it. We're all out of birdseed.

Any excuse to avoid the fact that he was wholly unqualified and unsuitable to be governor of a state like California. He has been as bad for CA as the village idiot was for this country.

Thast was my thought when I read it. Surely there's more than 1.2 mullion in the state. My guess would be at least 3 million in the state.

It is funny that you only use the experience arguement when it suits you.

Pres Obama was a US Senator and a very highly educated man.
He's doing a wonderful job.

Now on the other hand, his predecessor had some experience as a governor but totally jacked up the country.

We need leadership, not dictatorship. We also need one of a mature character, not a playground bully. We also need to have his administration to stop using public profanity, disgraceful. This entire "house" has become a mockery and embarrassment around the world and a particular danger to America. I wish I had never voted for him. Alarmingly Americans now realize the grave mistake.

California's are waking up, Arizona and states across the nation as to just how detrimental illegal immigration is to this country. We need to keep pushing forward to end this madness.
