    When are we going to stop supporting these groups and promote becoming American's. The answer is if they did not have something to fight over, many unions and lawyers would be out of jobs. In the Federal Gov't we have Black Historymonth, Asian-Pacific, Hispanic, and every other, ut no Northern European month. WHen in converstion at work I asked co-worker why the Army does this. Her answer was "every day is white people day". Is that really the message we send and the Federal Government should be the last ones to promote discriminatin or reverse discrimination activities.

    Tuition break for illegel immigrants is wrong. They have the oppurtunity to use that education to maximize future salaries. Therefore, they should be charged the same and pay it back through the established student loan programs like the rest of us had too. I did not get one as a female minority and paid back all $150,000. This is out of control and only widening the gap of discrimination.. Legal citizens of low income use loan repayment. If we have already paid for them to go to our public schools, probably given other entitlements have we not done enough if they are old enough and smart enough to go to college. It is issues like this that promote discrimination. The students parents should be deported and forced to use proper immigration channels. My daughters 8th grade class had many illegals and the girls were promoted to get pregnant, keep their baby's to prevent deportation. SO wrong. No more Welfare Programs for those that have no intention to uphold the laws of the U.S.

    Holder needs to at least step down. He is the man in charge period. And an operation that big had to get his approval to go forward. This makes him guilty of perhaps the largest straw purchase of firearms in U.S. history. Not to mention resulting in the deaths of many people . When exposed Holder chose to cover it up let subordinate agents in the ATF and cooperating gun dealers to take the fall. If this was a republican administration the same should happen as well .. The dead Agents family and the American people need to know the truth behind this fubared operation..... And the appropriate guilty parties need to pay the price..... CNN as well as the other networks need to get back to being non biased in their reporting across the board.. We want the facts not your constant editorialized commentary and half hearted efforts to get both sides of the story....

    I know Soledad is a supporter of the radical groups, The New Black Panthers and La Raza, but my question is, like the New Black Panthers did, wouldn't the country be better off if a bounty was offered on these groups?
