Immigration is a major issue in Florida where the concentration of undocumented immigrants is the fourth largest across the country.

Many Florida residents believe that illegal immigration is harming their state and won't necessarily support reforms like the DREAM Act.

A study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that the state spends $3.4 billion each year to educate undocumented children. Overall, it determined that Florida houses 950,000 undocumented residents.

A Zogby Poll from April also reported that 71.3 percent of Florida voters believed illegal immigration had a negative impact on the state and only 36 percent of those surveyed supported amnesty or legalization for current undocumented residents.

Go down by the shore line build some rafts made from 55 gallon drums, baling wire, five garbage bags, a pallet, and some bubble gum and put all those illegals on the raft. Hook all them rafts to a tug boat and take them way out into the ocean and turn them loose.

Why waste the 55 gallon drums when the old pallets will suffice.

Florida Poll

What that poll (didn't read it) might not have taken into consideration is the number of "migrant farm workers". In south Florida for the tomato harvest in January thru- then the grapefruit harvest, then on to Washington State for strawberries, later for Hops & apples. all of this "stoop labor"-etc,.Enough vegetables. The point is, the best the poll can do is approximate the Dollar cost. I'm not a Left Leaner but I've seen how some of these migrant workers have to live. Believe me you wouldn't put Fido in that trailer ! Meanwhile the guys on the block in Liberty City (Miami) are selling as much crack as they can get their hands on. No pain, No strain. Something ain"t right with these pictures. And, the what's not the right part is; that we are no longer an industrialized nation. Sixty % of our economy is service based. That's why "the Man" wants us to spend money. And, I think they want to continue the service based economy. Oh not a problem, we adopt all of these illegals and throw 1/2 in jail and let the remainder do the stoop labor and sweat-shop shit. That should be in the Labor Departments bailiwick. What a f----up Department that is. Footnote: Dpt of Labor website for agony.OK I'm rambling.

Have to agree with you. At least the Mexicans will work. More than I can say for a vast amount of the black population. The politicians only job is to keep the populace divided so they can divide up our money amongst themselves. Does the word Power sound familiar?

Power

Power is a familiar term. All types of it including "Political". I think the current power base can be overcome by elections. We need to insure we're behind that candidate(s) that stand-out for what we want.
