Facts reported.

Quote:
Many Americans are not aware that Arizona is the ground zero of illegal immigration.
Quote:
Phoenix is now America’s capital for human smuggling and the kidnapping.
More than 240 incidents were reported in 2008.
It’s little wonder Arizona’s police associations favored the bill, but new polls and stats are showing the approach is favored among most Americans.

Quote:
The National Academy of Sciences estimated that each illegal immigrant costs about $100,000 net annual cost to taxpayers.
Quote:
The Heritage Foundation, a Washington, D.C. based think tank estimate future costs for illegal immigrants in the United States will reach a half a trillion dollars.
Quote:
The influx of illegal immigrants has successfully "imported about 10 million high school dropouts into the United States," said Robert Rector, a senior research fellow in welfare and family issues Heritage Foundation.
Yet I am sure those who advocate for the perpetuation of illegal aliens invading this Nation will argue some moot point as they usually do when presented with fact.

Texans join Arizona and other Americans in reviewing the facts about illegal immigration

The Texas Republican candidate for Governor[and current Gov] Rick Pery signed into law a bill from the Texas legislature that allows undocumented kids to attend Texas State Colleges if the have been attending Texas Public school. The Kids will be eligible for State funds to attend College.

I dont think Texas thinks like Arizona.

Whether you choose to believe it or not, illegals are no longer welcome by the majority of citizens of this country. Perry will either change his pandering stance, or suffer the consequences.

It’s bad enough illegals have taken advantage of a law intended to offer an education to the children of legal migrant workers. Under no circumstances should they be entitled to receive a tax-funded college education. It is precisely these nonsensical “perks” that entice illegals to enter this country and rape taxpayers.

I am from Texas and if Perry does not change his stance he will lose my vote along with many other people I know.
He needs to get his head out of his rear and listen to what the majority are saying to him.

YOU do not speak for the majority of true TEXANS.

Perry should have his butt kicked across the border.

Too bad we don't have a Jan Brewer in Texas willing to run for governor.
