    “I finally concluded that if anything was going to happen, I would have to do it myself,” he said.

    Improbably, he did. From the resort town of Petoskey, Mich., Dr. Tanton helped start all three major national groups fighting to reduce immigration, legal and illegal, and molded one of the most powerful grass-roots forces in politics. The immigration-control movement surged to new influence in last fall’s elections and now holds near veto power over efforts to legalize any of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.

    One group that Dr. Tanton nurtured, Numbers USA, doomed President George W. Bush’s legalization plan four years ago by overwhelming Congress with protest calls. Another, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, helped draft the Arizona law last year to give the police new power to identify and detain illegal immigrants.

    A third organization, the Center for Immigration Studies, joined the others in December in defeating the Dream Act, which sought to legalize some people brought to the United States illegally as children.

    Rarely has one person done so much to structure a major cause, or done it so far from the public eye. Dr. Tanton has raised millions of dollars, groomed protégés and bequeathed institutions, all while running an ophthalmology practice nearly 800 miles from Capitol Hill.

    If the United States is to survive the invasion from Latin America, it will need more Americans to do the job themselves and not wait for instructions from Washington to save the American way of life.

    You have a point, or what? I can see his. We can't even employ and/or feed and house our current population; yet, the bleeding hearts have no problem letting illegals come in and take it out of our mouths.

    The United States is slowly being dragged into Latin America where no other race will survive.

    Thank goodness we live in a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy.

    Consequently, such laws may violate the 14th Amendment, as determined by the Court in Plyler v. Doe, 457 U.S. 202 (1982).

    I thought we lived in a democratic republic? Could Mr Ivonelli of my high school government class be wrong?
