    Great ArticleMan episode!

    Not to worry about Repubs stealing Demo cred for Immigration Reform… Real people can see though GOP pandering.

    Immigrants have been FLEEING bad government, only to endure American bad government brought on by the political children of Nixon and Reagan.

    That’s why polls show all immigrant communities want a robust government response to the issues of our time. We, The People … ARE the government.
