Do Reconquistas Already Run Federal Immigration Bureaucracy?

An estimated 500,000


took to the streets in

Los Angeles
over the past weekend to demand illegal
alien amnesty. There were over 30,000 people in

, and more in other American cities….cities
that are

currently American,
that is.

But the

fantasy world
inhabited by the federal immigration
bureaucracy—which would be charged with

any "guest worker" amnesty
scam—still knows no limits.

Through its Office of Communications [OoC], DHS` U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services [CIS] division has
just (March 26) chosen to alert its employees in its
Daily News
e-mail broadcast that a "wave of

anti-immigration sentiment
is building throughout
the state

]  . . . [c]learly there is a need
to highlight the positive aspects of

legal immigration.

To combat this "wave
of anti-immigration sentiment
the CIS announced that the Denver District Office, in
cooperation with the Office of Citizenship`s "Community
Liaison Officers
[Community Liaison Officers]
has launched
"a new initiative that embraces the

rich diversity of culture
that now

exists in Colorado.

What a relief. So this is the tally:

  • Nonexistent
    "lack of embracing diversity"

elected officials
to serve as speakers at local
citizenship ceremonies. The goal is to not only enhance
understanding of the agency`s mission, but also to
develop new partners in the community. Truly, one door
opens another and the initial results of this new
project indicate long-term success.

"Why: Just this
week, ten

"How: The

for their concern or involvement with immigrants, and
themselves represent a cross section of Colorado`s

"When: The
project was launched in February 2006 and will continue
through the remainder of the fiscal year.

"Early results:
