I have been on the phone all Day with the House of Representative's leadership. You will be happy to know it looks like they are holding strong against any path to citizenship for those here illegally, or Uncotemporary workers.
We discussed in depth what my opinions were on the subject and they were received well. I learned a bit about their problems with enfocement now, although I gave them a solution for that as well.
After very lengthy conversations, I feel better about our chances of saving our country. Plan on losing the felony provision, because the Republicans don't want it and tried to get rid of it previously but was blocked by the Democrats. Why you ask? Because it is a poison pill that the Dems want in it. The felony provision would make evey illegal tied up in the legal system and they want a fast track to deportation.
I made it crystal clear that no path to citizenship would be acceptable, and I was informed that is the message they are hearing, and there won't be any path to citizenship. I informed them that "we the people" are paying attention and we will remember in November!

USA Today reports that a police officer, whose photograph appeared in a USA TODAY and USATODAY.com report May 18 about the surging violence against police in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo, was in critical condition Tuesday after he was shot five times outside his home.
This happened as Juan Pablo Elizondo had just completed guard duty at a hospital in Nuevo Laredo. This was where some of his colleagues were being treated for wounds suffered in past attacks.
The attack highlights the importance of sealing our borders to stop the unrelenting threat against Mexican police in a city where two major drug cartels are battling for control of routes into the USA for shipments of drugs and illegal immigrants.
Just two weeks ago, two Mexican state police officials were shot to death in their unmarked vehicle.
Previously, Elizondo's colleagues were wounded when gunmen burst into a restaurant where the officers were eating.
More than 110 people have been slain in Nuevo Laredo this year in a killing spree authorities believe could surpass last year's record of 176.
Earlier in the month, Elizondo, 31, said officers in his department were warned by superiors that drug cartel members had issued a threat against city police. Last summer, Nuevo Laredo's police chief was assassinated just hours after taking office.
The article reports that friends and family have been telling him to leave the police force, but he refused.

Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School
A Los Angeles Unified School district Hispanic K-8 school led by a principal who believes in racial segregation and sees the institution as part of a larger cultural "struggle."
Among the school's donors are the National Council of La Raza Charter School Development Initiative; Raza Development Fund, Inc.; and the Pasadena City College chapter of MeCHA, or Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan.
"La Raza," or "the Race," is a designation by many Mexicans who see themselves as part of a transnational ethnic group they hope will one day reclaim Aztlan, the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs. In Chicano folklore, Aztlan includes California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas.
The school teaches the ancient Nahutal language of the Aztecs and its base-20 math system. Another language of emphasis is Mandarin, even though no Chinese attend.
MEChA, founded at U.C. Santa Barbara in 1969, has the stated goal of returning the American Southwest to Mexico.
