Some truth to what Barone says...like a blind hog chancing upon an acorn. How do we get moderate population growth of desirable new citizens? Grant green cards to the many Asians we grant advanced degrees to, but then send home to compete with us. Amnesty for the mostly ignorant, low aptitude 11 million will be a DISASTER...and soon become 50 million just like them. Those people will ALL become net takers. We need scientists, not ILLEGAL grape pickers for Pelosi's orchards. Heritage calculates that EACH poor family of 4 will consume $1.4 MILLION more in services used over a lifetime than it EVER pays in ANY form of taxes.

YOU can help save America! Time is VERY short...get engaged!

This new amnesty bill is nothing but the same filthy pig with lipstick! Don't fall for it!

The Pied Piper of undesirable change, President Food Stamp, simply wants more Big Guvment voters and dependents! We cannot afford the po' people we have already!

Here is where YOU can readily contact your representatives in Congress...heck, contact LOTS of them in Congress! --->

Something that gets totally missed about poor, typically ignorant, Hispanic immigrants...

While it was true that back in the 19th Century some like Andrew Carnegie could arrive here poor, even uneducated, and aspire to make good, we are now what economists call an "advanced service economy."

What this means is that one REALLY needs education and communication skills to get ahead in TODAY'S America. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs might have dropped out of college, but that is an academic point-- neither was ignorant or culturally disparate.

But the myriad, prolific Hispanic poor who predominate among ILLEGAL aliens almost NEVER fit this matrix. Naturalizing poor, ignorant Hispanics simply accelerates our devolution into becoming a Third World
Our major public policies are based on the assumption that America will continue to enjoy growth. Economic growth and population growth.

Through most of our history, this assumption has proved to be correct. These days, not so much.

Last week, the Commerce Department announced that the gross domestic product shrunk by 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. And the Census Bureau reported that the U.S. birth rate in 2011 was 63.2 per 1,000 women age 15 to 44, the lowest ever recorded.

Slow economic growth and low population growth threaten to undermine entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare....
