Wasn't it Colin Powell who said, "You broke it, you fix it." Applies to the immigration situation, don't you think?
Turns out that our country, founded on immigration, doesn't have a clue about how to fix what it broke. Snakes in the Plane. Immigration is the rattlesnake in the plane. And the dopey GOP keeps poking it with a stick. Ever seen a rattlesnake get mad? Well, if you haven't, you're about to.
Even Dick Morris knows that if you alienate this voter block now, it will take 20 years to re-gain it. And Latinos lean right.
They're mobilzed. The demonstrations are planned to expand on a groundswell that attracted about 30,000 largely Hispanic protesters in the District last month, about 100,000 in Chicago and as many as 500,000 in Los Angeles, a surprising display of political muscle from a population that makes up a substantial portion of the nation's 12 million illegal immigrants.
