    05/12/2005 1:06:10 PM PDT · by South40 · 44 replies · 921+ views
    Latino leaders seeing immigration downsideThe Minuteman Project may not have succeeded in closing the U.S.-Mexican border, but it did seem to help close what has been an ideological gap between Latinos and those who claim to represent them.

Or from the public comments and legislative priorities of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus,...

    Sweeping measures face an uphill fightWASHINGTON – Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate will introduce legislation today that could grant legal status to an estimated 10 million to 12 million illegal immigrants now in the United States.

The legislation is certain to raise the temperature of a national debate already simmering over the Minuteman Project's volunteer border patrols and just-passed...

    Michael Graham wants to start a war in Washington. And Maryland. And Virginia. Why?

At the moment he's getting assistance from an unlikely ally - the Montgomery County police. Graham is the new right-wing talk radio jock in the D.C. area. You can hear him on WMAL in the midmorning. He's the setup guy for Rush Limbaugh. WMAL is to WTOP what Fox News is to CNN. Rush does national issues. Graham sticks to enraging locals on local topics....

    Please spread the word to everyone you know who is concerned about border security that Monday morning at 9am Michael Graham is going to blow the doors off the pro-illegal alien rally this weekend in Montgomery County.

You're not going to believe the audio he's got of his confrontation with the illegals....
