If you really want to freak out the republican's remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. was a republican. lol... Just Sayin' The Party is crumbling.... My mom is a republican because that was the party the help immigrants back in the 70s that believed in what Liberty stood for.

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Yes, My mom was an illegal immigrant and is proud to say her 1st vote after getting her citizenship was for Ronald Reagan.
One grandmother was a 1920's legal migrant worker form Juarez, Mexico (when we still had a manageable and sane immigration policy). My other grandmother was an ILLEGAL white immigrant from South Africa by way of an ILLEGAL border crossing from Canada. No one ever questioned her status, but I remember trips to Tijuana where La Imigra hassled my grandmother because the kids in the back seat looked to "white" to be related to her. I remember hanging my head out the window and rattling off in Espanol that I was a "Mestizo Americano", and being waved through.....Ah, those were some good times...
