With unemployment at 10.9% nation wide average, it is a very good indicator that the USA is over populated now.

It is funny that there are just as many Americans out of work, as the government has estimated the amount of illegal trespassers in this country.

I'm hoping that what you've just described here was just a very bad dream, can we wake up now?

I'm not sure whether amnesty will be passed or not, I doubt it as I do know that more and more are becoming informed and are getting very tired of the strain/drain that is put on this country by illegal immigration and are beginning to voice thier concerns.

Boy are you right. I think so many of our Citizens have already reached the breaking point on this issue. And i feel so many would like to see tougher enforcement of our laws.

<<The amnesty dems could have passed amnesty without a single Republican vote,>>

I'm wondering if they really want to pass an amnesty bill. They know it would be political suicide, so they may be keeping the discussion going, and promising just enough, to keep pro-amnesty people voting for them.

If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.
