Our Founders chose "gridlock" over "programmatic efficiency".
Although I think Heather MacDonald is wrong about her facts and stats on the illegal aliens "crime wave", I think she's spot on regarding the politics that argues new Hispanics citizens would vote conservative.

Anyone really believe that the majority of these Chicano pride/multiculturalists- many who would undoubtedly push for generous welfare benefits- would vote Republican?
Play the short video on this lefty blog. Those kindergarten kids should be granted what they're chanting for: We don't need them with that brand of patriotism. Anyone that loves Mexico that much- or any nation- should not be here; they should go back over there.
And I say all of this as someone who was somewhat on the fence on the illegal immigration bill. Certainly, the status quo is unacceptable. My greatest fear is that we will get something much worse proposed, should Democrats take not only the majority in the House and Senate, but also the Presidency.
