    Dems would never support it, because it would kill a crap load of electoral votes, while turning new border states into toss-ups or right-leaning areas.
    Then Romney wins the election. Immigrants will get mad at Democrats for not caring about them.

    I fail to see how you're making that leap.

    I'm fairly certain the illegality of secession goes both ways. If a state can't leave the union, then the union can't leave the state.

    The premise of this thread is so ridiculously stupid I can feel my neurons begging me to close the window.

    Is there a law stating that the union can't leave the state?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'm not familiar with this either. Pasch seems to be making a brutal assertion.

    It's a win-win-win situation. What's the problem?
    The "problem" is California would eventually become identical to Mexico. The only significant change that would take place would be that our border agents would have to secure the West on top of the South and the North.

    Wait. California is not already part of Mexico?
