“In 1913, nearly 15% of the U.S. population was foreign-born. You know what that number is today? 13%. America isn't getting more foreign; it’s getting browner. That's most people's big hang-up with illegal immigration. I wish we could just admit that. There are 900,000 fewer illegal immigrants here than there were six years ago. Any discussion about the illegal immigration "problem" should start with pointing out that it's really not that much of a problem. The bigger problem is our overreaction to it. The Obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last year. You know how much it spent on all other federal law enforcement? About $14.4 billion. And this is supposed to be a liberal administration. Illegal immigrants aren't eating away at our public resources -- they generally put in about what they get back. But this specter of a Third World invasion is costing us more than half of our federal law enforcement budget. We need immigrants in this country. They do jobs other people don't want do, they become American consumers and they're good for our economy.”—Bill Maher
“Everyone keeps saying that immigration is bad because immigrants might be dangerous. Well, I looked it up, and immigrants kill an average of twelve people everyday, while Americans kill an average of 6,457 people everyday. To me, it looks like when compared to Americans, immigrant are angels.”—A fucking SIXTH GRADER in debate today.
U.S. Senator Delivers Immigration Speech in Spanish, Is Labeled a Traitor to America
What happens when Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia makes a 13 minute speech in Spanish on the Senate floor in support of immigration reform? Why, he makes history as the first Senator in history to delivery an entire speech on the floor of the Senate in a language other than English! History! Historia! Tremendous! Tremendo!
Also, as you might have guessed if you read the last post on here, this happens:
“Ur a disgusting fck” says this angry guy and a slew of other super-duper patriotic totally-not-bigots-we-swear American heroes who (barely) speak English!
“Unbelievable!” says Conservative actor / Breitbart blogger Adam S. Baldwin! You may know Mr. Baldwin from his role as Major Mitchell in Independence Day or as Jane from the show Firefly or as a great big douchebag on Twitter.
haha. “Speaking Spanish is offensive because people who speak Spanish tend to vote for the party I do not like.” I honestly don’t understand why Spanish speaking people won’t vote for your party, Jacque…
lmao. Oh, the things said in these tweets must be why they won’t vote for you party. “Have we sold our souls to illegal Mexicans?” asks poor Bob. YES. BOB. AND THEY PAID IN PESOS TOO. And Capslock Vicky over here thinks the answer to her party losing the Latino vote isn’t to support policies that the Hispanics support…it’s to just keep ‘em all out and keep running business as usual!
lmao. Look at all those Twitter avatar flags.
#Nice #use #of #hashtags. #Very #relevant.
“Yeah. if *u* *cant* speak English, get out *AZZ* HOLE.”
“TIM KAINE is the BIGOT for SPEAKING SPANISH.” What.
And, also, by the way, just a little note, to all these fine scholars. English is not “our language.” There is no official language in the United States of America.
With all that said, Tim Kaine explained that he felt it was important to explain the bill in Spanish because 40 MILLION people in the U.S. speak the language…
…and with that they call him a TRAITOR!

Republican Congressman Reaches Out to Latinos By Tweeting "Illegal Aliens Have Invaded My Office!"
Republicans have a problem. They just can’t seem to get Latinos to vote for them! With the Hispanic population rising in the United States, the GOP has said they realize they need to reach out to the Latino community.
Enter Republican Congressman from Iowa, Steve King!
“20 brazen self professed illegal aliens have just invaded my DC office.”
No, Steve King’s office was not invaded my Martian invaders from outer space. It’s just that good ol’ GOP reach out! With that tweet, Steve King is just extending his hand out to the Latino community!
But Steve King was not done! Steve King continued!
Rep. Steve King, as you can tell, is not too keen on immigration. He calls out the “Gang of 8,” the bipartisan group working on immigration reform, to come “guard his door.” lmao.
Anyway, why were this scary Latinos doing at poor Steve King’s DC office? King introduced an amendment that would end the Department of Homeland Security policies that allow it to delay deporting young, undocumented immigrants…and these muchachos y muchachas had the nerve to think they could meet with an elected official to discuss his position!
And speaking of those invaders, what did these evil, dastardly, no good, marauding band of “illegal alien” thugs look like that struck such fear into the nonexistent heart of Steve King?
MY GOD. YOUNG LATINO HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES. RUN FOR YOUR LIVES.
