Giving in to illegals is not the answer- we will only get millions MORE coming in Amnesty of any sort will include chain migration ( aunts, uncles, grandparents- will add up to as high as 100 million ) and create the largest drain on our infrastructures ever seen. We see illegals coming over the border every night in AZ, so don't tell us they have stopped coming. Acting like Dems is not the answer nor is giving into illegals and their power grabs. Many are not reasonable and continuously talk about taking over America with their high birthrate and continuing illegal immigration. Border security first, then discussions on work visas. They should never be allowed citizenship. To grant amnesty is to create a perpetual wave of illegals.

Right on Sherri34, the census tells us that between 2000 and 2010 the Hispanic population grew more than 4% per year. That means their numbers will double every 17 years.

60 million now, 120 million by 2029 (before today's baby gets to the 12th grade), 240 million in 2046!

How 'bout 480 million in 2063? and that is if not one more came across the border after sunday!

And the dropout rate is 50%?

So what do you do with illiterate people today when Americans who graduated college 20 years ago are obsolete in this high tech world?

The pundit world will now eviscerate Mitt Romney, a man who, had he garnered just a few hundred thousand more votes in a few key districts, would have been hailed as political genius. Instead, his every fault will be examined, his mistakes magnified and his defeat decreed to be, in retrospect, inevitable.

Romney was not my first choice. I had been hoping for Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. But in the course of the long campaign, I had come to admire Romney immensely....
