Before we debate, I'd like you to post at least one chart, fact, link, embedded cartoon, video, picture, chart, graph, post, data, information, or idea in the chart below prior to our fishbowl. The more illuminating, thorough, empathetic, thoughtful, informative the post, the better our fishbowl and the better your grade. I've put three posts about the USA Dream Act, you need put only one post on any aspect of immigration in the US.
