Texas state senator Leticia van de Putte delivered the Spanish-language version of the Democratic Party's response to the Bush State of the Union address. Republicans and even most Democrats might want to pay closer attention to what Democratic leaders are saying behind their backs (example from Senator Bob Menendez), yet I don't think this will get much play.

And, perhaps most disturbing of all, he marched at the May 1 2006 Chicago march in support of illegal immigration. The main organizers of that march have a long series of links to the Mexican government.

AOL (America Online) has created a new immigration section for their AOL Latino channel. It features a blog with a La Opinion-style slant, such as refering to the Minuteman Project as "caza-inmigrantes" (migrant hunters)  That post also uses phrases like "indocumentados" and "antiinmigrantes" (refering to the rhetoric of Romney and Giuliani).

While not a PIIPP, it does come close in that it profiles two sympathetic students, both of whom - surprise! - are high achievers.

The DREAM Act was up for a cloture vote earlier today; the Democrats needed 60 votes to proceed, but they only came up with 52 versus 44 opposed.
UPDATE: The votes are here.
Those voting for it included current or former presidential contenders Joe Biden (D-DE), Sam Brownback (R-KS), Hillary Clinton (D-NY), and Barack Obama (D-IL).
Republicans voting for it were: Bob Bennett (R-UT), Norm Coleman...

Someone has to do it, so let's look at the latest New York Times immigration editorial entitled "Stop the Raids" (link). Because of recent and apparently sloppy immigration raids on Long Island, the NYT is now calling for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be much more careful.

In addition to being a massive and nearly unlimited amnesty, that bill - currently attached to a defense bill - would allow illegal aliens to take college discounts from U.S. citizens.

... legislation (S 774) labeled the DREAM Act that would allow states to provide college benefits to illegal immigrants could be offered as an amendment to the fiscal 2008 Defense appropriations bill (HR 3222) later this month.
The transcript contains some real valuable nuggets.
Here's John Edwards:
Just a few months ago, I was in Canton, Mississippi, as part of a poverty tour, and I met with poultry workers who worked in a poultry plant in Canton, Mississippi. And one of them was a man named Daniel who had been badly hurt on the job. And because of his injuries, he wasn't able to work.
The DREAM Act is an explicitly anti-American bill that would allow illegal aliens to take discounted college educations from U.S. citizens. Corrupt newspapers and "reporters" have offered a long line of propaganda pieces - called around here PIIPP - in support of the legislation. That propaganda is invariably strongly biased towards the Act and rarely if ever mentions its downsides.
No, you read the title correct: Lindsey Graham tried to tack on an amendment to a Homeland Security funding bill that would have provided $3 billion just to be spent on border security. Yes, that Lindsay Graham, the one who said there were no votes for enforcement-only. A list of the provisions is at .
Some senators just talk the talk on being supporters of massive illegal activity. Senator Barack Obama walks the walk and he's not afraid to point that out. Speaking at the convention of the extremist-funding National Council of La Raza yesterday, he said:
"Find out how many senators appeared before an immigration rally last year.
Some comments from Rep. Jeff Flake ("Smiley"; R-AZ) on the Flake-Gutierrez STRIVE Act (House amnesty) are here. Asked whether it has a chance:
Not a prayer. No, I just don't see the Democrats wanting to take it up. I mean with the Senate bill dead I just don't think there's going to be any serious comprehensive legislation to move. There may be some political statement legislation or some single...
David Gonzalez of the New York Times has a shocking report on plans by some Irish and other white illegal aliens to gain political power in NYC through the use of anchor babies:
Lucky enough to be born in New York, Daisy and Sean are citizens, for whom voting and civic participation are a birthright and duty.
... we're going to get Ag jobs or DREAM Act" or pathways to legal status for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, [Sen. Lindsey Graham] said, "is to do it together. This idea of 'Just do the enforcement,' there are no votes for that."
Yesterday, Senator Barbara Boxer issued the following release regarding the failed Bush-Kennedy-Senate immigratiom amnesty bill :
"I decided to vote yes on cloture today because I felt that if the policies in this bill were carried out properly, the result would be a strengthening of our border security, the rescue of our agriculture industry, and the acknowledgment that hardworking...
... support for the anti-American DREAM Act.
Unfortunately, a glance through the other entries reveals only one other person who asks similar questions, and he's got some questions for Hillary and Obama.
Imagine what would happen if an amnesty supporter were forced to endure an hour-long, nationally-televised interview just about immigration matters where they were asked a series of tough questions about amnesty and forced to defend what they support.
As long as the questions were tough enough, and they were asked follow-up after follow-up, their lies and misleading statements would be revealed.

The bill also included provisions apparently similar to California's Prop. 187 and Arizona's Prop. 200.
