I tell them about the Dream Act, said Miriam Gonzalez, 23, who has been registering voters at Latino supermarkets like Ranch Market and Food City, referring to the White House-backed legislation that would provide young Hispanic students a path to citizenship but has been stalled by Republican opposition in Congress. I keep talking, and then people register...
The voting-age population of Hispanics in Arizona has surged over the last nine years to 845,000 from 455,000 and now constitutes 19 percent of Arizona residents of voting age. Though Hispanics have not turned out at high levels in past years
Given the openly hostile environment, Mr. Obama would seem to have little chance of winning Arizonas 11 electoral votes in 2012 or even the incentive to make much of an effort here. But the states crackdown on illegal immigration has coincided with a boom in its Hispanic population, now nearly a third of the states residents.

To heck with Israel, we have our own “Right of Return” problem right here. With the same intent.
“To heck with Israel, we have our own ‘Right of Return’ problem right here. With the same intent.”
Yours is not a flippant comment. There are people here in Illinois who say EXACTLY that when discussing “immigration.” For example, there are hordes of Mexicans (and I mean Mexican nationals, not Americans of Mexican ancestry) here who come right out and say that, that they are just “taking back” what is “rightfully” Mexico’s. Again, they are saying Mexico has a rightful claim to ILLINOIS!!!
Doesn’t surprise me at all. I used to live in Murphysboro.
Why is she "telling them about the Dream Act" before she registers them IF THEY ARE ALREADY FREAKIN' AMERICANS?
Time for Sheriff Joe to do a little checking into this Miriam Gonzalez character. She is definitely up to something.

so according to the NYSlimes, legal American citizens of hispanic/latino dissent that live in Arizona are upset that the governor of the state is trying to protect her constituency by implementing laws against law breakers...lmao...
