What is the chicago alderman
position on the immigration bill? Are they for illegal
alien amnesty? Do any of the
chicago alderman speak english? I even heard of one
prominent foreign diplomat
complain to the US state dept. that he wanted to upgrade his immunity from
prosecution status to that of an illegal alien because
his kid drinks and is troublesome and he wants to
make sure he stays out of jail! Rick W
