The two signature issues of the Bush administration's policy toward Latin America -- immigration reform and fast-track authority to sign new free trade deals -- died a sudden death last week, leaving the United States with little to offer at a time of growing anti-Americanism in the region. What can Washington do in the remaining 18 months of the Bush Administration? Read the full column here, and let us know what YOU think.

Use the current laws lo lock the border, then invite the legislators to draft a working visa that works and that can be used first, by the illegals that are already in teh US, later by those who want to apply from their homelands. No control of the borders, no deal. No excuses.

åndêrš, I too am for immigration reform, such as bringing in Southeast Asians, Filipinos and Mahatma Gandhi Indians to do the work now done by illegal Hispanicks. We cannot have a large percentage of our population who hates our guts and will not speak English.
So I guess it was OK for Hispanics to hunt down illegals found living in what they saw as their land, even though they were thousands of miles from any Hispanick settlement. That is OK to do according to Hispanicks.
But those same Hispanic people expect the Anglos to take in illegal Hispanicks into their society, give them full benefits and a place in our society and let them rob the USA blid of all its wealth. Anyone see something worng with that picture?

from "Spanish Texas", by Gerald Ashford, copyright 1971.
page 174
Most of the handful of others who dared cross the border in the late 18th Century were either driven back or carried away to the mines of interior Mexico. To cross the Spanish iron curtain of that day, without a special license from the King of Spain, was in fact a capital offense.
When the English settled at Jamestown, they were constantly on the lookout for a Spanish attack against their foothold in the New World. They knew how Spain had responded to previous challenges to its claims made under the Papal Donation of 1493, including Pedro Menéndez's massacre of Frenchmen in La Florida in 1565.

Your suggestions about the ethanol are far more fiction than reality.

While venezuelans are exporting $32.000 millons the biggest oil companies are making thousands of millions just for intermediation.

Bush and Cheney are defending big oil companies interests and for that work they must be receiving a succulent payment.

åndêrš, I speak for many people of the world. We want you Hispanics to create your own successful countries. Everyone is tired of being your babysitters.
We have no place in the USA for any people who will not speak English or who hate the USA. That's how countries break up and die out.

There is a difference between
an hispanic and a latin american.
Who cares if U.S inmigration
gets aproved or not?.That is
only hispanics in the U.S affairs.

Our main concern is that the
Nafta do not get approved and
destroy our economies.
