In 1997, Ernest Zedillo, then president of Mexico, declared in Chicago, "(T)he Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and ... Mexican migrants are an important _ a very important _ part of it."

In 2004, Mexican President Vicente Fox said in Chicago, "We are Mexicans that live in our territories and we are Mexicans that live in other territories. In reality, we are 120 million people that live together and are working together to construct a nation."

In 2004, the Mexican government published safety tips for Mexicans who wanted to illegally cross the U.S. border. In recent years, Mexico has been pushing hard for U.S. amnesty and various benefits for millions of illegal Mexican migrants.

It has also fought measures to secure our borders, such as the proposed border wall. If naturalized, millions of amnestied migrants could add tens of millions of people (and many future voters) to the United States, through births here and through immigration of extended families. Children born in the United States, even of guest workers, are American citizens and can vote at 18.

Our last national elections were very close. What would be the impact of such an amnesty on future elections? Although many Mexican-Americans are patriotic and most Mexican migrants have no political agenda, many newcomers could be mobilized by Mexico to vote according to Mexico's interests.

California, Florida, Arizona and Texas will gain a lot more seats in the House, all Democrat.

In less than 10 years, Texas will be a "swing" state in presidential elections and California and Florida will be as untouchable to the Republicans as Massachusettes is now.

If illegals are given a "path to citizenship" , the Democratic Party will be in control of gov't (both state and federal) for generations to come.

Remember the words of LBJ after he signed the Civil Rights Act in the 1960's: "I'll have those ni**ers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."

Same will be true for the Hispanics - only this time, the Dems will be gaining a rapidly GROWING voting bloc as opposed to the fairly stagnant black voting bloc.

I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
And the touch of a world that is older
I turn the switch and check the number
I leave it on when in bed I slumber
I hear the rhythms of the music
I buy the product and never use it
I hear the talking of the DJ
Can't understand just what does he say?

I'm on a mexican radio
I'm on a mexican radio

I dial it in and tune the station
They talk about the U.S. inflation
I understand just a little
No comprende, it's a riddle

I'm on a mexican radio
I'm on a mexican radio

I wish I was in Tijuana
Eating barbequed iguana
I'd take requests on the telephone
I'm on a wavelength far from home
I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
I dial it in from south of the border
I hear the talking of the DJ
Can't understand just what does he say?

I'm on a mexican radio
I'm on a mexican radio
I'm on a mexican radio
I'm on a mexican radio

Radio radio...
What does he say

I have a brilliant idea. We should collect Mexican income taxes on all the illegals and send the money south. I mean, if they really are Mexicans, they should pay Mexican income tax along with US income tax right?

Cards???? Party????

THE PARTY takes sides just for the viewing pleasure of Johnny Q. Public.

We sit around and watch the Game from our seats, trying to guess their hand, when we should be the Dealer. And they are about to deal themselves another Ace.
