It would appear that people are starting to wake up to the problems associated with illegal immigration.
Having said that, it remains a fact that most of those who oppose illegal immigration in polls are nowhere to be found when it comes to "putting their feet on the ground" when it comes to a rally, a protest, or anything that adds a "visual" impact.....

500,000 illegals (And their paid supporters) hit the streets in Lost Angeles in 2006. ( ? )

I have yet to see a response anywhere near that size from those that supposedly oppose illegal immigration....

Where are they ?

If we continue to remain silent and non-participants then the government will continue to perpetuate the problem...And nothing will change.

I firmly agree with your statement. Small numbers pop up here and there. I wonder where we all are too....

One thing to remember is that us Americans have possibly more effective means of protest i.s phoning/faxing their representatives, etc. vs. street demonstrations; and, judging by the multiplying laws against illegal immigration---------the above may be working.

Read that those pro illegal asshats protesting back in May 2006 did more damage to their cause than putative 'racism' by Americans against them. Let those idiots keep up their pro illegal protests--------in this deep recession---------they are merely cutting their own throats in the realm of public opinion.

It is working and more effective than marches. Afterall, we stopped the last amnesty from happening.

Getout....

I meant no disrespect to You or anyone here....I just get pretty damned tired of seeing the results of poll,after poll,after poll......that show that the majority of people are against illegal immigration, but continue to remain "silent" when called out to participate....

Oh well, We will win in the long run....but , the damage that has, or will be done to this country is going to be difficult, if not impossible, to repair.

Stopping amnesty is a hell of a lot different than stopping the burden currently being placed on the American taxpayer, and in the long run stopping amnesty solves nothing. The American taxpayer will continue to not only be forced to support illegals, but will continue to be taxed to support the demise of America,

Freedom requires active participation.

You stopped the last amnesty or there was simply not enough support to pass amnesty.

Is the cup half full or half empty?

In a nut shell you can thank Reagan who set the precedence of forever dangling a carrot in front of Mexico that if you illegally enter the USA you too can get citizenship.
