41. Most American are opposed to amnesty and not just RWers.
Edited on Sun Mar-30-08 02:01 PM by mac2
It was part of the 2006 mandate. Close and protect the borders. No amensty. It was forced on us after the elections by those in the party leadership. You know the globalists who want cheap labor and hate American workers?

The candidates for office never protested with American workers against bad trade policy and off shoring even of our government jobs. But they were there for the protestors in LA for amnesty and "rights".
