I wonder if any academics (or anyone else) have studied the potential impact any population change would have on AZ's allotment of seats in the U.S. House.

Granted, the 2010 Census is over making it moot for a few years. But I think it's worth noting that the Census does not count citizens it just counts people.

Immigration post!

But to Anthony's point, isn't it a fact that illegals don't participate in the census. So if that is true as Al McCoy would say ..."No harm - No foul"!!!

Mission accomplished... from a nationalistic point of view.

"endurecimiento" doesn't mean "enduring nature" it means "hardening" or "strengthening." False cognate got you again, Greg.

Greg Here: I knew what "endurecimiento" meant in Spanish, it's just tough to come up with an equivelent for "to become more enduring..." I like your choice of "hardening."

Attrition through enforcement is incredibly effective, and the open-borders crowd knows it.

If you take away the incentive for illegals to be here, the problem will eventually take care of itself.

There's this constant drum beat that we need to "Do Something" about the millions of illegals here (i.e. make them citizens so they can become a powerful new voting block for the Democrat Party)

The tide is turning and Arizona is just the first shot in a battle we're winning across the country.

"The folks" reported just a few weeks ago that over 100,000 suspected illegals have left our fair state just this year. Many returned to their countries of origin, others--as reported in the pro-illegal alien Republic--moved to other states. Since "the folks" report that a touch over 500,000 illegals were in Arizona at the beignning of 2010, an almost 20% "loss" is quite an accomplishment. Yes, the mission is being accomplished, and the more states that take Arizona's approach to the illegal immigration issue, the quicker--and bigger--that number will be. Go Russell!

What's the mission. Senator Pearce has reduced the crime rate in Phoenix from 238 murders (2006) to less than 80 over the last 12 months. We have violent crime rates not seen in 40 years.

He has reduced the statewide unemployment rate to below the national average as compared to skyrocketing rates in California and Nevada.

However, we are now going to see the dark side of controlling immigration - fewer jobs for caucasions. In an improving economy, free flowing immigration creates more jobs for caucasions, not fewer. Economic growth is one part productivity growth and 2 parts population growth. Caucasians aren't reproducing themselves, so all population growth has to be immigration.

We are condemning ourselves to a second rate future if we don't reestablish the melting pot with a strong flow of immigrants engaging in economic activity, not crime.

We all need to stomp out balkanization. No spanish radio stations, no spanish billboards, no spanish tv stations, no spanish newspapers. This is America, speak English.

And let's get rid of all these ethnic restaurants too. Have you seen the Food Court at the mall lately. Greek! Chinese! Mexican!

We need more "caucasion" restaurants. White bread! American cheese! MANWICHES!!!

Hey Klute you don't like American fare? By the way, you forgot Spam and Miracle Whip.


I don't mind them selling Mexican food as long as the menus are mostly in English.

And, I'm not being humorous or racist. A lot is at stake here.

Falcon9,

Oh, I get you're not being humorous.

Racist?

"...fewer jobs for caucasions." [sic]

You're not worried about jobs for Americans, or Arizonans, you're worried about jobs for white people.

The first two would have been acceptable, decent answers. The latter, coupled with your desire for immigrants to be more American (which apparently means to speak like "caucasions", write like "caucasions", listen like "causasions") points out the obvious bias you have to who and how people should be.

You may not think you're a racist, I get that. You probably genuinely think, based upon your years of upbringing in a country that edified the white man, that you want what's best for everyone - which is to be more "American".

In 40 years, you and I are going to be just another minority. The difference between you and me is that I don't give a **** about my fellow causasians. In 40 years, it's going to irrelevant.

You want to stop "balkanization", stop thinking about what's best for caucasians, and start thinking about what'll unify us after there is no majority.

Incidentally, I hope you'll join me in me my drive to get the cities of Oro Valley, Casa Grande, and Mesa renamed to Gold Valley, Great House, and Table. GO PROP 666!

"Hey Klute you don't like American fare?"

Sure I do. Chop Suey, Carolina BBQ, crawfish etouffee, Floribbean cuisine, Chicago dogs, chimichangas, etc.

That's what great about America. A whole bunch of people come from other places and make everything better.

"By the way, you forgot Spam and Miracle Whip."

I assure you, I did not.
