      Immigration......hummmm

      From the L.A Times





      If this doesn't open your eyes, nothing will! How do you think that
      this is going to affect your grand children in years to come?

      >From the L.A Times:

      1. 40% of all workers in L.A. County ( L.A. County has 10 million
      people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This was because they
      are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.

      2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens

      3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal
      aliens.

      4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien
      Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

      5. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California detention centers are
      Mexican nationals here illegally.

      6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in
      garages.

      7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most
      likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

      8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

      9. 21 radio stations in L.A. are Spanish speaking.

      10. In L.A. County 5.1 million people speak English. 3.9 million
      speak Spanish (10.2 million people in L.A.County).

      (All the above from the Los Angeles Times)

      Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on
      welfare.

      Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth (and over 90%
      of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration.

      The cost of immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997 was, (after
      subtracting taxes immigrants pay), a NET $70 BILLION a year, [Professor
      Donald Huddle, Rice University]. The lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid
      minus services used) for the average adult Mexican immigrant is a NEGATIVE
      number.

      29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

      If they can come to this country to raise Hell and demonstration by the
      thousands, Why can't they take charge over the corruption in their own
      country?

      We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue.

      THE U.S. VS MEXICO: On February 15, 1998, the U.S. and Mexican soccer
      teams met at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The crowd was overwhelmingly
      pro-Mexican even though most lived in this country. They booed during the
      National Anthem and U.S. flags were held upside down. As the match
      progressed, supporters of the U.S. team were insulted, pelted with
      projectiles, punched and spat upon. Beer and trash were thrown at the U.S.
      players before and after the match. The
      coach of the US. team, Steve Sampson said, "This was the most painful
      experience I have ever had in this profession."

      Did you know that immigrants from Mexico and other non-European
      countries can come to this country and get preferences in jobs, education,
      and government contracts? It's called affirmative action or racial
      privilege. The Emperor of Japan or the President of Mexico could migrate
      here and immediately be eligible for special rights unavailable for
      Americans of European descent.

      Corporate America has signed on to the idea that minorities and third
      world immigrants should get special, privileged status. Some examples are
      Exxon, Texaco, Merrill Lynch, Boeing, Paine Weber, Starbucks and many more.

      DID YOU KNOW?: That Mexico regularly intercedes on the side of the
      defense in criminal cases involving Mexican nationals? Did you know that
      Mexico has NEVER extradited a Mexican national accused of murder in the U.S.
      in spite of agreements to do so? According to the L.A. Times, Orange
      County, California is home to 275 gangs with 17,000 members; 98% of which
      are Mexican and Asian. How's your county doing?< /P>

      According to a New York Times article dated May 19, 1994, 20 years
      after the great influx of legal immigrants from Southeast Asia, 30% are
      still on welfare compared to 8% of households nationwide. A Wall Street
      Journal editorial dated December 5, 1994 quotes law enforcement officials as
      stating that Asian mobsters are the "greatest criminal challenge the
      country faces." Not bad for a group that is still under 5% of the
      population.

      Is education important to you? Here are the words of a teacher who
      spent over 20 years in the Los Angeles School system. "Imagine teachers in
      classes containing 30-40 students of widely varying attention spans and
      motivation, many of whom aren't fluent in English. Educators seek learning
      materials likely to reach the majority of students and that means fewer
      words and math problems and more pictures and multicultural references."

      WHEN I WAS YOUNG: I remember hearing about the immigrants that came
      through Ellis Island. They wanted to learn English. They wanted to breathe
      free. They wanted to become Americans. Now, far too many immigrants come
      here with demands. They demand to be taught in their own language. They
      demand special privileges--affirmative action. They demand ethnic studies
      that glorify their culture.

      I’m a stickler for facts.


      The various figures quoted above were not taken from a 2002 Los Angeles Times article. They appear to have been gleaned from a variety of sources and vary in accuracy as noted below:
