Well ... uncharacteristically for them ... this whole current political discussion about "immigration reform" is not just about what to do about the 10-15 million (mostly Hispanic) illegal immigrants that are currently residing in the U.S. The Congress is actually trying to come up with a comprehensive immigration policy that can be the "law of the land" when it comes to what to do and how to govern and regulate immigration. They're supposed to be trying to cover ALL the bases ... since the...

Part of me feels insulted that this Immigration legislation does not include Haitian immigrants, but part of me knows that it was the Latinos that go out and did all the work, protesting, negotiation, and Voting that would bring about such legislation. Also, Latinos are in such great number in this country compared to Haitian immigrants, and volume means something in America (sometimes).

As I've stated a while ago, some years ago, the East Coast has an immigration problem where whites get in few questions asked. This has caused an increase in Russian and Albanian gangs and organized crime. This mess is never addressed when discussing immigration. African descended illegal immigrants almost always get turned out or their status is cut short as soon as their home countries become 'stable'. Now look at what has happened in Boston. I told you all so.
