Yes I know that. I mentioned it bc Dvaz said the reason politicians don't push for enforcement of laws is bc they could be a voting block. Annnd my point is, was, even the majority of the legal ones who are eligible for citizenship, don't actually go through with it, only 42% do. So no illegals are gonna end up voting lolÂ
Keep living in la-la land. I personally worked with illegal immigrants who EASILY became citizens, with only the slightest ability to speak a word of English, and vote. Talk to the kitchen workers at restaurants, work construction sites, or work lawn services. Oh wait, you never had to work a lowly job like that...
I guess you know more than Pew research and the census Bureau?
According to them, we have more Hispanic immigrants and illegals than any other group and they are far less likely to pursue citizenship vs the other groups, actually putting themselves in a position to actually vote...That leads one to believe the whole voting block dealio is a in your head.
What the hell are you jiving about? Hispanics make up approximately %90 of illegal immigrants. Even a small fraction of them becoming citizens blows all others out of the water. Democrats are losing black voters. They need Hispanics to come here and depend on them so those Hispanics will continuously vote Dems into office. Common sense SiFi. Keep your head in the sand if you so please.
800,000 to 2.2 million illegals are registered to vote. Guess who they vote for...
"If 42% become citizens, donÂt you think the politicians are pandering to that potential voting block?
Yes I do bc its that way with everything in society including special interests and groups who all have preferred agendas.
I was speaking to the immediate issue of illegals coming over now. The ones involved now are unlikely to become citizens. It takes YEARS when they actually do. And Hispanics do so substantially less than other immigrants.
There are plenty of Hispanics here who CAN vote and it's a good size group so there is that, and I tend to think its this group of sympathizes who are the power block.
As far as what Dvaz said about fraudulent voting...I need to see some real data on how they actually can pull that off to the tune of a couple million people. At any rate, that would be our fault for allowing it, just like the non enforcement of immigration laws.
Maybe I need to read more political blogs and watch more 24 hour news stations, but those who favor building a bigger and better wall dont seem to be doing a good job of justifying it.
People who want to reduce human trafficking of children should favor a wall. Opposing a wall that fills that gaps and improves the weaknesses should mean those opponents favor human trafficking. Isnt that the same strategy that worked when Democrats pushed through Obamacare many years ago?
It takes YEARS when they actually do. And Hispanics do so substantially less than other immigrants.
Planting seeds for future gains would be a good political strategy.
Look how the Democrats are still using the issue of slavery and civil rights to their advantage even though Republicans passed civil rights legislation with more support than Democrats. The long game still pays dividends.
