Uno de cada ocho

As far as I could tell, La Opinión was the only local quotidien pescados-wrap today to put the big national immigration study on the primera pagina.

Según estudio, uno de cada ocho residentes en Estados Unidos es inmigrante, la cantidad más elevada de los últimos 80 años...

The Center for Immigration Studies, a right-leaning DC thinktank, painted a fairly dystopic view. To the two of you sweethearts still hanging on to your fearless national leader, it can't be good for you that both immigration and illegal immigration has climbed over these past seven years to heights unseen in modern times.

USA Today's predictably droll version is here. It says that the study concludes that undereducated immigrants hurt the country. What sounds reactionary in Los Angeles sounds believable elsewhere.

The nation's lone remaining serious fishwrap of record says that:

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.

Boldface mine. If this is considered a "problem" for most of the rest of the country---wouldn't it stand to figure that it's a matter of considerable interest for LA? Just wondering out loud.

that was meant for Spot re: mayor photo...

about the illegal info: scariest part is that virtually ALL population growth in our public schools is from illegal immigrants' kids (here in L A., they've even displaced black and white kids in what used to be "their" schools -- yet even the Republicans aren't talking about or dealing with this.

Their stupid debate last night on CNN never even addressed this issue; Rudy brought it up on a way that made him seem rude and dumb, virtually handing the pro-illegals a victory. What a bunch of stupid white guys.

illegal! illegal! illegal!

What else do we, as citizens of the United States of America, have to say to make the Government of this country understand that we do not want illegal residents!

The BIG BURRO BUSH, is trying to help corporations and large companies get as much cheap labor as possible.


The BIG BURRO BUSH, is happy supporting NAFTA and approving big polluting trucks to further lower the wages of truck drivers. The Burro Bush has expanded trade to China to further lower our workers wages. Of course a 14yr kid in India and China gets paid less here.

Where are the Blogging Burro supporters? I always read how the midget mexican mayor is responsible for the illegal alien problem. What about the dumb-ass republican president? Bush has allowed millions of illegal aliens to cross the border under his watch.

Come on Mayor Sam minutemen speak up, you cowards.

Most of this blog is about blaming the Mayor for everything.

We will not criticze George Bush, even though the immigration problem is under the control of the federal government.

The Blogging Burros (except for J.M.) don't have enough common sense to realize this.

The Midget Mayor is even responsible for our dependence on foreign oil.

The Mexican midget mayor has made a career off the backs of illegals. And it is precisely this lifetime anti=American platform that will be his downfall in 2 years!!! Tony Villar is no better than the day laborers you see in front of Home Depot. He has no class, no education, and no loyalty to this country!

Believe me, ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION will be the No. One issue in every election from now on. Hillary will lose mainly because she is pro-illegal! Looks like Mitt Romney will be the next Pres.

AMERICANS ARE FED UP WITH THE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS!!! PERIOD!!! END OF DISCUSSION!!!
