Illegal Immigration debate still alive and well

In fact, the illegal immigration debate is starting to heat up quite a bit compared to what it has been in the past. Or at least, internet traffic statistics show that the topic is being searched more than any other when it comes to our networks.

Last week I posted a blurb about Wells Fargo Bank supporting illegal immigration and since then our traffic has doubled. Before the post, we were sitting at about 500 unique visits per day between all of the blogs on Of course, this isn’t a big amount of traffic by any means, but at only two months old as a site we’re pretty happy about it. Anyway, traffic AFTER the illegal immigration post has hit a daily average of about 800 to 950. This traffic is flowing in from Google, MSN, Yahoo, Technorati, Digg, and a few other search engines. The extra traffic has been a result of illegal immigration related keywords.

This prompted me to do a quick research on other sites and networks that I run, and the findings were somewhat surprising. On all of the political sites that I’m involved with, illegal immigration related keywords and keyphrases are responsible for 30% of our traffic.

To me this seems like a pretty substantial number. President Bush and most House Republicans ignore this issue and run like the wind when it is brought up, yet it is clear that Americans still have it up front as an important issue. Why then, do our REPRESENTATIVES ignore our cries for help? Why is the Government STILL refusing to confront this problem and do their jobs by PROTECTING OUR NATIONS BORDERS?

Illegal immigration is spiraling out of control and the longer we wait, the harder it’s going to be to deal with. Bank of America and Wells Fargo are now aiding people who are clearly in violation of US law, and they brush it off as “financial assistance”. People can ride across the border on an elephants back with a music band and no one notices. Border patrol agents DO THEIR JOBS and our GOVERNMENT throws them behind bars for it.

Folks, this is INSANE and it needs to stop. When will we as a collective demand it be stopped?

    I agree with you that the jump in the number of hits to this site is an indication that the immigration issue is important to a lot of people. However, I wouldn’t assume that to mean anything about which side of the issue the visitors are on.
