When I hear people say that the cost of produce will go up, I could absolutely hit something.
Yes. It will go up.
But we're paying for the illegal influx in other ways. Denial of service at some hospitals that are overwhelmed taking care of illegals. Health care for illegals is a cost being passed on to the taxpayers as of last week. Free tuition in some states is being passed on to taxpayers.
This is an issue that will sink the Republican party unless something is done about it.
And meanwhile, Hillary is carving out space on this issue for her presidential run. Not that most people will believe her, but enough moderates and naive voters will that it could cost us the next presidency.
"This is an issue that will sink the Republican party unless something is done about it."
Good point. A lot of FReepers passed in the latest Freep-poll. If Tancredo were in the poll, it would have rocked. I was ticked at Tancredo regarding DeLay. I still wish he would apologise. But hindsight, I think that was just his zealotry showing through. He couldn't pass up a cheap shot. But despite that, he's my guy for now until a stronger borders-conservative puts his hat in the ring.

Unfortunately, there are many here who can't think beyond their next trip to WalMart.
