Quote Of The Week

"It doesn't make any sense, in some way it is immoral that we are counting 12 million undocumented immigrants who have no benefit at all financially speaking,"

Rev. Miguel Rivera, president of the National Coalition of Latino Clergy & Christian Leaders.

Posing an argument for illegals to refuse to fill out the census. This is absolute arrogance. Am I the only one that is noticing that we appear to be moving past the whole "illegal immigration is wrong" debate and into why they are not being given rights?

I am unclear why we are even counting them. Even worse, we are not only counting them, they count.

"When we boycott the Census we are in essence boycotting schools in our community, and representation in our federal government. For those two reasons alone we need to make sure every single person is accounted for," said the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, with the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

Local governments say they would feel the pinch too, since a false count would lead to lower population figures -- and the result would be a reduction in federal funds.

"If you are not counted, you just don't count," said Jose "Joey" Torres, mayor of Paterson, N.J.

Torres said the 2000 Census put his city's population just a few hundred people below a federal standard that could get his city more money. That means a boycott of any size of the 2010 Census could keep Paterson from reaching that threshold.

I must be stupid, I didn't realize that illegals counted for aide, school funding, etc.

Brush the truth aside and replace it with lies you tell over and over again and the lies soon become 'common knowledge' acceptable to the short-attention spanned general public.

The census helps to determine precinct borders and representation.

If illegals are counted, that particular precinct is entitled to more representatives: House of Representatives, state assembly, etc.

I don't know of any other country in the world that takes into account the illegal-immigrant population. What the hell is wrong with America that we even consider doing so?

Chuck said...

Brooke, thanks, I agree

Leslie, agreed, have the media repeat it enough...

AOW, I find it stunning that people that are not supposed to vote are counted to draw the districts.

Chuck, to those high on the drugs of leftism and stupidity, there must be no borders. If it were up to them folks, they'd forcibly take even more your money and give it to people in 3rd world countries via social programs.

The stupid ones will only learn when the nation is broken, but it'll be too late then. The hardcore ones want to break the nation and they know what they are doing. They're running your country and mine, into the toilet.

I'm for illegals being counted in the census as long as they are counted as illegals and sent home.

As jobs become more scarce in the US because of pinheaded liberal programs, there will be many Americans that will need those jobs.

These people are only firing on one cylinder. No other way to put it.

So glad you're back! I hope you had a great time away, Chuck.

I'm with they think we're not NOTICING? Do you know how many emails I've had today alone on this topic? People are WIGGED OUT OF THEIR MINDS...

CUBE..."counted and sent home"..Don't let the door hit them on the way out.
LEGALS who want to come and join American culture? COME ON DOWN!

Chuck said...

MK, agreed

Cube, I can see the census staff. Illegal? Get on the bus.

Shoprat, you may be giving too much credit

Z, we did enjoy the time off. Brooke and Cube nailed it.
