    The irony is, Hispanics are technically caucasion.

    During the hearing, Clarke stressed a point that advocates for immigrants often make: Michigan needs immigrants.

    "You're the reason why we have vibrant neighborhoods in Detroit," Clarke, the son of an immigrant, told the cheering crowd.

    +1 on that 913. What's the issue...either you are here legally or illegally. I would think those of us who are here legally would WANT those here illegally found out and deported...I just don't get it!

    Don't take this as gospel but I remember seeing somewhere the the Border Patrol is over 50% Hispanic. Not by alot, but still over 50%. I'll see if I can't find that info.

    Well, not like the southwest, of course, but Detroit has had a large hispanic population for a couple of decades now. There is, in fact, a section of the city called Mexican Town. It's posted that way on the highway signs and everything.
