been watching a lot of footage lately showing people marching in Phoenix. While I’m not sure how much any
given person knows about this issue, I do know what a lot of people
don’t know. So I thought I’d share it with you. The vast majority of this
information was taken directly from La Queen Sucia, in her
comments to someone who has been harassing her through her comments section .
like what you see here, please go over and show her some
love. This is exactly what she has been doing for others. Besides, she’s got so
much more to share. I’d hate to cut you off with such a small sampling. And

U.S. soldiers who have DIED in Iraq has been immigrants.

citizen of the country for which he sacrificed his life. Gutierrez held
resident status, which he obtained in 1999.

immigrants sends money to another nation.
Since taking office, George W.
Bush has SLASHED taxes for the top 1 percent of the population – i.e. the very rich. The average amount of money saved in taxes for the 1.3 million wealthiest
Americans PER YEAR thanks to these new laws is: $53,120 per person – per year – in taxes that we were getting from the

billion. A year. For this amount of money, we as a nation could have provided
health coverage for 40 million AMERICANS for a year; almost the exact number of
