Could be but since the south couldn't lay claim to the Globetrotters they probably stole the c&w to make up for it.

The story I heard was the combo arose to feed jazz musicians after their late night sets. Taint dinner, taint breakfast. My guess is this might have been the same reason why Roscoe's opened at Sunset and Gower, near the musician's union local

Last time we were stumbling around DT Oakland after a show, we ended up in here:
Home of Chicken and Waffles - Jack London Square - Oakland, CA

Line out the door at 1:30am. Pretty good stuff. Haven't seen chicken/waffles in the South much, but it may have been imported from there.

... apropos of what? Illegals are stealing America's chicken and waffles?

Btw Buick: California isn't empowered to execute immigration policy ... that's federal law. Anyways, the "illegals" have been "fleeing in droves" all on their own in recent years back to the homeland. That reality is even precipitating a serious crisis for California's produce growers. Do try to keep up

No, it's not. But it is "empowered" to stop coddling them.

Makes the old Bracero program almost look good, doesn't it?

Recent data suggests the undocumented migration MAY be rebounding from a decline over that last few years. Null's statement stands as true. This is last time I do your homework for you.

Looking at Mexico, the report confirms “dramatic reductions in arrivals of new unauthorized immigrants” from there since 2007. The researchers cite Mexican census figures showing that the rate of migration to the United States dropped by two-thirds from 2007 to 2012. From 2007 to 2009, the report says, more undocumented Mexicans left the United States than came here illegally.
But about six million Mexican-born immigrants still make up 52 percent of the unauthorized population, according to the Pew estimates.


“I don’t see any sign of a return to mass undocumented migration from Mexico,” said Douglas Massey, a sociology professor at Princeton who has studied Mexican migration patterns for decades. “The Mexican population in the United States is stable. Self-deportation is not working,” he said, referring to policies advocated by some lawmakers to increase enforcement pressure on illegal immigrants to spur them to leave voluntarily.


Recent increases in illegal arrivals are migrants from countries other than Mexico, including Central American nations, according to the Pew report.
