The next Senator of FL will be Rubio...young Cuban Republican.
Keep in mind that a in AZ a lot of the people who wanted the law against illegal immigrants are legal immigrants as well. The same in Florida, since the average legal immigrant had to work at becoming such.

Yes, and a great portion of them are in jail along legal immigrants and US citizens. In the CA prisons, 30% are illegal immigrants.

I beg to differ. All those protesters in AZ..mostly LEGAL.
It's not the issue of legal or not. It's the issue of harassment because you might "look" illegal. And looking illegal, as we all know, is being Hispanic in AZ.

I don't get it, this country worries so much about terrorism and they could just come right in.

I agree with this viewpoint...I just wish the illegals that plan to stay here would go through the legal process of becoming citizens like those who came before them.

Post one single link indicating such You are assuming that such a thing will happen, which amounts to something like, "the sky is falling!!!"

Children of illegal aliens can receive an education. Not only that, but if I well remember, illegal aliens can have a CA driver's license.
Illegals cannot have drivers' licenses although "One Bill GiL' tried to push it through multiple times with no success.

Read the post. That post you quoted me on was concerning Mexican tourists, the RICH Mexicans, visiting places like AZ and TX to spend $$$$ in Malls, Restaurants...etc.

Set back, watch, and learn what's happens to states that intend to harass it's citizens.
And you really believe RICH Mexicans care a whole lot about illegals?

Be real, if they cared about them, they would try to get them to come back home.
