In all its cacophony and moments of absurdity, this morning's Today show segment on immigration was a supremely edifying example of the confusion, high emotion and complexity of the immigration debate. Matters reached their Alice-in-Wonderland apotheosis when Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California was shown in a Senate committee arguing that illegal immigrants are good . . . 'citizens.' Said Feinstein:
"They pay taxes, their children are Americans, they go to schools, they're good citizens and they're needed."
This was in line with the fait accompli argument advanced by La Raza representative Janet Murguia. She referred to what she estimated as the 11-12 million illegal aliens in the country as "people are working in backbreaking work that nobody else wants to do in this country. We need to . . . understand that they are already part of this country."

The Aztlan fairy tale is the biggest joke of all, that somehow in the murky past, the founders of Mexico City had wandered south from part of the present USA, ["Aztlan" in idiot-speak], and therefore all Mexicans today have a claim on the Southwest....
Please, pass me the barf bag.
They are using their flag as an enemy flag of conquest, in OUR land. That makes it fair game. Burn it. Deface it. Drag it. Stomp it.
Do it when they will see it, and they will go even more loco, totally off the rails insane, in full view of America.
This is OUR country!
It defies explanation.
Sometimes I'm speechless when I hear what people think they are entitled to .Some stupid ass Mexican "student" was on tV talking how HE is entitled to a free education and health care in the US. It's the old nanny state mentality.
"6. Mexicans are a mixture of indian and Spanish or other non-indigenous people.
7. Indians came here from Asia."
Thank you, thank you, thank you! ONE intelligent response to this whole thing!
My TRUE Mexican friends (from lower Mexico) just laugh at this bunch of fakes. My friends actually speak pretty good English (they worked very hard to learn it, but they did!) AND they also speak the true formal Spanish...not the Tex-Mex junk.
As far as American Indians are concerned, most of them are quite proud to use the term "Native Americans". I have no latino/spanish/mexican/indian blood, but I AM a Native American. Why the term 'aboriginal American' is a term they can't use is beyond me. If I walked around saying I'm a white, European/German/Scot/Irish/English/etc./tax-paying/female/blah/blah, do you suppose I'd get extra attention?
Feinstein is a a miserable failure
That'll require stitches!
Sounds like Presidential material! Blackbird.
Ummm, there are a few FReeper's that have said as much right here on open forum, particulary on the FRee Traitor threads. Blackbird.
I heard Sen. Dianne Feinstein say that Mexicans clean our houses and watch our kids... Bull$#!T
Clean our houses? Maybe those rich liberal A$$#0LES need to create second class citizens to be their slaves. But they are playing a dangerous game. Creating a large group of second class citizens without the same rights as the rest of society is laying the foundation of our doom.
BUILD A FENCE, and enforce the law.
1. Democrats love stupid voters.
2. Mexicans are stupid voters.
3. Therefore, Democrats will say anything to win the vote of Mexican stupid voters.
That about cover it???
You're not only illegal, you're illiterate, genetically inferior, unwashed, slovenly, subordinate, mendacious, pathetic, and greasy! Excuse me, I meant you're Mexican!
One threat is the Muslims, and another threat is the Mexicans. We should be addressing both threats. Just because a Mexican illegal is not a terrorist does not mean that we should be welcoming him and millions of his countrymen into the US. Why is it that billions of people throughout the world can "have a life" in their own countries, but the Mexicans must have access to the US to survive?
Notice that she confers the title of "citizen" on these illegals?
Since when did she get that power?
if you look at the actions and listen to the rhetoric of the Mexican government, you would realize that they are indeed our enemy
Oh yeah? Look at the crime stats and the racial makeup in California prisons. They're not all "good people who come here to work".
Just ask the ten year old who was raped in a local park recently by two illegals.
Someone needs to remind these numbskulls that the Mexicans stole it from the Spanish, who stole it from the Indians.
Add new states -- not the existing 32, but what makes sense, such as giving Baja to California, maybe even split California at the same time, combine smaller Mexican states. Then increase the number of representatives in the House, increase the Electoral College (automatic based on number of States and Representatives), and watch the fun as politics realigns. We haven't added a new state since 1959. This might even make Puerty Rico want to choose sides once and for all.
The simplicity of this is that it eliminates the racist claim from Mexicans because all Mexicans everywhere will become citizens of the USA. Also, currently naturalized citizens like Schwarzenegger and Granholm, as well as the former Mexican citizens, can be given one-time waivers to now be eligible to run for President (such as the clause at the time of the ratification of the Constitution).
For better or worse I don't think she knew what she was saying. She probably meant it in the way we say of someone "he's a solid citizen" meaning he's a good guy. But for her not to realize the implications of what she was saying in the context of the immigration debate reveals a serious tin ear.
No kidding, but given the pussy footing cowardly actions of our state and US Congresses, our President and the media, I'm not very hopeful. This whole protest crap is spinning out of control. The US Congress should have stopped this flood of illegal immigrants from Mexico long, long ago and stopped their incentive of coming to our country with our ridiculous law that made an illegal's child born in the USA an automatic citizen. What insanity!
I watched the local news in Houston & it made me ill. Where in the hell are the grown ups? Has the term ILLEGAL turned into a meaningless sound bite? Sadly, I already know the answer and I'm thoroughly disgusted.
Right now, I'm probably the GOP's biggest nightmare. I want this insanity to stop and for my party to stop acting like political whores and get this situation under control!
Now THAT is a racist statement if ever there was one, and not surprisingly, by a pro-amnesty neo-apartheid advocate. How great it'll be for the globoGOP and old Rat party to have proven themselves to be exactly what the left has been claiming all these years. Unfortunately, it'll probably be the left that benefits from such a mistake.
What adam_az said BUMP!
Our country is circling the drain, is what is happening. You won't recognize it in 5 years if something doesn't change.
Flood America with violent criminals and take guns from
their would be victims...
Now why would they want to do that...
To kept the peasants from the uprising that is sure to come...
Recall DiFi .... scratch that .... ARREST DiFi!
Please! They're NOT bank robbers! They're "undocumented account holders, making withdrawls!" Careful, you might hurt someones' feelings. We certainly wouldn't want that.
She was reading from the White House talking points.
I've been telling people (anyone who would listen to me) for years that the reason that leftist WANT the "public school system" to fail, is in order to destroy education about what makes The United States of America special. If The USA isn't special, then why should being a citizen matter? And if citizenship doesn't matter, then neither do borders. Of course, try telling Vincente Fox that, if you're from Honduras or Guatemala. Then you'd have to deal with the Mexican army, making sure you can't get into Mexico, unless you're just passing through, on the way to the USA.
What I want to know is, if these people love Mexico so much, then why don't they want to stay there? More importantly, if they think that the USA is better, then why do they want to bring the living conditions from Mexico, here, when they're trying to get away from those living conditions?
What does she say about the Vietnamese who apply for a visa in their own country and have less than a 5% chance of being accepted because the US is too busy absorbing illegal mexicans. IS that diversity? Is that fair? Is that American?
They're in meat packing plants too. If you look at the wages paid to employees, they drop as illegal aliens begin moving into the labor force.
If you want to slow illegal aliens coming into the US, you need to cut the demand, meaning getting brutal on businesses that hire illegals. First offense, $5,000 per illegal working. Second offense $50,000 per. Third offense, $500,000 per illegal. It will bankrupt some companies, but it would be worth it. And maybe putting the CEO or owners in jail wouldn't hurt either.
They're just committing the crimes Americans won't do!
And Bush bloviated while we were inundated.. ON PURPOSE..
I am thinking anyone who has any sort of Mexican roots and was born in the USA should start demanding free services from Mexico. My great grandmother was born in Mexico. So, I want part of your house, Vincente Fox.
To the criminal enterprise democrap party a voter need not be a citizen, just a voter for democrap candidates ... and the party bosses at state and municipality level will make sure the 'votes' are counted as legit. You see, illegal aliens are right down the democrat party ally ... the party of lies and killing are fine so long as they serve the empowerment of democrats. [If you doubt it, count the number of 'sacrificed' unborn that empowers the democrat party and which killing they work so hard to continue and seek vigorously to defend as a 'good thing'.]
Clearly, Travis, these invaders intend to make it THEIR land and toss the 'gringos' who will not bow to their demands. Why else would they/do they boldly display their Mexican flag when marching for 'U.S. inclusion'?
Which, if it follows the English usage, when used as a proper name, strongly implies superiority (as in The Football Team, The Luxury Car, The Pizza).
Where there is the Cleaver family, can Eddie Haskel be far behind?
Did you see the one from the thread StoneColdGOP posted? This'll P you right off:
"It's Not Xenophobia, It's Xenonausea"
You forgot emergency rooms. I took a neighbor down for stiches recently and it was like a day at the UN, english was not the first language. Then to have one of the aids tell us not to sit to close to the illegals in the corner as they might have TB. All this in Kansas.
That is funny.
Actually conversation captured by local radio reporter in Dallas:
Female Protestor: "George Bush wants to get rid of all immigrants."
Reporter: "Actually, Bush is on your side."
Protestor: "That's not what everyone's telling me!"
