    Well, we know the 11 million is actually 30 million illegal aliens, so they're off by 20 million at least.

    Notice the changing numbers of people from certain countries during the 1960s till more recent. Countries flipped. We get a vivid picture of the fundamental transformation Senator Ted Kennedy and others crafted to occur and which has lead to the immigration disaster of today. Democrats playing smart for themselves and for their political future. Republicans are increasingly selling their political souls and selling out the future of the United States.
