Did you know that California became a state on September 9, 1850? In those days, the people had no electricity, the state had no money, almost everyone spoke Spanish and there were gunfights in the streets. Basically, nothing has changed except back then the women weren't made of silicone and the men didn't hold hands. The latest telephone poll taken by the California Governor's office asked whether people who live in California think illegal immigration is a serious problem: 19% responded, "Yes, it is a serious problem." 81% responded, "No es una problema seriosa."
