I am so happy to read the following:
“Beatrice Saldivar protests in Dallas, Texas, carrying a photo of a nephew she said was killed fighting in Iraq.”
“Tens of thousands of people banged drums, waved U.S. flags and marched in a protest Sunday urging federal lawmakers to pass immigration reform that would legalize an estimated 11 million undocumented workers.”
The marchers have apparently learned their lesson and no longer carry Mexican flags and those of other countries. I get the distinct impression that becoming true Americans is now important to them. But shouldn’t this worry me?:
"Marches will only get you so far," said Armando Navarro, coordinator of the National Alliance for Human Rights, a network of Hispanic activist groups in Southern California. "There has to be an electoral component to get the Republicans out of the majority."
Oh my goodness, will these Hispanic illegals become the backbone of the Democratic Party? Hell no! These people will turn Republican as they proceed up the economic ladder. Silly people like Mr. Navarro will be pushed out of the way. He will ultimately be popular with only the Daily Kos crowd.
Securing our borders is nonnegotiable. No more masses of illegals can be allowed into the country. And yes, this goal is easily achievable. Our sausage making political process will resolve the rest of the issues.
