10.3 Million New Immigrants ~ Half Of Them Illegals

Theodore Roosevelt

Immigration at Record Level, Analysis Finds
NYT ...for complete article

Immigration over the past seven years was the highest for any seven-year period in American history, bringing 10.3 million new immigrants, more than half of them without legal status, according to an analysis of census data released today by the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington.

One in eight people living in the United States is an immigrant, the survey found, for a total of 37.9 million people — the highest level since the 1920s.

The majority of immigrants arriving in recent years are from Mexico and Central America, and more than half of them are illegal.

The states that have received the largest numbers of the new immigrants are also states where immigration has been hotly debated. After five states that have been high on the immigration list for decades — California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey and Texas — those receiving the most new immigrants included Arizona, Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Wild Thing's comment.........

That this invasion happened on George Bush’s watch, with absolutely nothing being done except a push for amnesty, will be the lasting lousy legacy of his presidency. It has cost our nation billions, debased our culture, and taken the lives of thousands of U.S. citizens who were victims of crimes perpetrated by illegals. Shameful.

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.

But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." ~ Theodore Roosevelt January 03, 1919

Stuck on Stupid

Gosh I love great graphics, awesome stickers and people that appreciate a one of kind statement or quote.

One of America's Heroes....Lt.Gen.Russel Honore.....at a press conference regarding the Hurricane Katrina.

Honore: You are stuck on stupid. I'm not going to answer that question. We are going to deal with Rita. This is public information that people are depending on the government to put out. This is the way we've got to do it. So please. I apologize to you, but let's talk about the future. Rita is happening. And right now, we need to get good, clean information out to the people that they can use. And we can have a conversation on the side about the past, in a couple of months.

This was posted at Ranting Right Wing Howler and I want to show it to you. I would love one of these in a sticker if they have them made up someplace. Tah dah!

Thank God for men like Lt.Gen.Russel Honore. Just one more example of how truly awesome our military is and the kind of person that serves our country.

Thanks again Right Wing Howler
