An Intelligent Way to Address Sequester, Deficit Crises: Deport Illegal Aliens!
“(Washington, D.C July 6, 2010) A new study released today by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates that illegal immigration now costs federal and local taxpayers $113 billion a year. The report, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers, is the most comprehensive analysis of how much the estimated 13 million illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children cost federal, state and local governments

Illegal immigration: What exactly does a ‘secure’ border look like?

Once, the barren mesas and shrub-covered canyons that extend east of the Pacific Ocean held the most popular routes for illegal immigrants heading into the U.S. Dozens at a time sprinted to waiting cars or a trolley stop in San Diego, passing border agents who were too busy herding others to give pause.
Now, 20 years after that onslaught, crossing would mean scaling two fences (one topped with coiled razor wire), passing a phalanx of agents and eluding cameras positioned to capture every incursion.
So while the D’s and the R’s fall all over themselves trying to out pander each other for the illegal aliens Latino/Hispanic votes - the racist LaRaza Unida Party thinks times are right to start their own - putting all these panders out on their *sses - treason all the way around - Ruthie
Political, economic and social conditions in the United States make this a propitious time to create a Latino political party, asserts Armando Navarro, a political scientist at the University of California, Riverside.
Navarro will present a paper calling for the creation of a Mexicano/Latino political party at the 40th Anniversary Commemoration of the 1972 Raza Unida Party National Convention Aug. 30-Sept. 2 in El Paso, Texas. The paper, “Prospects for Reviving RUP or for Creating a New Partido,” will appear in Navarro’s newest book, “Strategic Scenarios for Mexicano Self Determination of Aztlán in the 21st Century: What Needs to be Done,” due to be published
McCain compares immigrants, speeders
During his at-times raucous town-hall-style meeting in Sun Lakes last week, U.S. Sen. John McCain compared immigrants now in the United States illegally to traffic speeders, saying they should be allowed to get straight with the law by paying a penalty and taking other steps.
“All of us, from time to time, I think with rare exception, unfortunately, have broken the law,” McCain, R-Ariz., on Tuesday told the crowd of more than 150 people in the retirement community near Chandler. “Mine was while driving an automobile at an excessive speed. I paid a fine. I paid a fine. I had to go to (traffic) school. Some of us might remember that experience.”

McCain: Better reception in Mexico than Arizona

Those who know him best, like him least

“The Los Angeles Times reported that after meeting with Pena Nieto, McCain held a news conference saying they had a “substantive discussion about the immigration policy debate in Washington.” But McCain, who heads the notorious Gang of 8 senators pushing amnesty for illegal aliens in the U.S., remained unspecific regarding details of his talk with the Mexican president on the matter.”
