I was listening to a program last week with Cardenas as a guest. I was in and out of the truck so I did not hear all the comments. My understanding is that he wanted to provide the download for free to illegals in the border region of Mexico.
Regardless of your position on 'Illegal Immigration', a defensible opposition may be taken. There simply is no 'Black & White' in the issue of 'illegals' already present in the US, it is a very difficult, complicated issue and that is before politicians become involved. Inject political maneuvering and it becomes a real 'hairball'. High concentration areas of illegals have high crime rates and social services are burdened to limits (tip of the iceberg problems). The Feds attempt to shift the burden to the border states without recompense...the list just goes on.
Border security should be priority #1 in this issue, however, IMO the D's see it as an advantage to gain Hispanic voters and the R's have not the intestinal fortitude to attempt to stop it for much the same reason. Cardenas and his T I T program simply don't care that they are nothing more than a canker that will continue to drain our society.
