Seems it is just being pointed out now, that what they used to call just some "man", is now being recognized as Mexican or Central American. They have deliberately hidden the costs of both legal and illegal immigration. Coulter has been pointing this out, and it is probably why Trump got so much attention. Their cartels run the border towns of Mexico, and much is pouring over here.

Shocking how many people don't seem to understand the concept of sarcasm.

Many people just read the headlines. That's why I said "Up Front". The more significant point is not that this was a Native American family, but that he is another Mexican we brought in to work while we have high unemployment (and record low labor participation rate). Despite many being good people, many have no respect for our laws. We need to push some of the welfare people into these green…

In fact they have listed the names of the young people in the obituary section of the paper, they just don't put heroine or shotgun, or rope as the cause of death or list it specifically as a suicide... Word of mouth and social media is how we know who what when where and why... old people have killed themselves forever, we just don't list the cause of death out of deference to the family.

Poll: Quincy residents opposed to progressive tax increase

1 year, 4 months ago From Illinois Policy Institute

Almost 70 percent of Quincy residents polled are opposed to, or unsure about, the proposed progressive income tax increase

A "We Ask America" poll of Quincy residents found that almost 70 percent of taxpayers polled are opposed to, or unsure about the proposed progressive income tax structure in Illinois.
 
Only 33 percent support a progressive tax increase. 
 
Tax hike proponents are heralding a progressive tax as a "tax on the rich" but the proposed tax rates would increase rates on anyone making over $18,000.
 
New polling shows Quincy residents see through the rhetoric and are weary of another tax hike. 
 
Some highlights from the poll include:  
  • Two-thirds of Quincy taxpayers are either uncertain or opposed to changing the Illinois Constitution to allow for a progressive income tax. 
  • Quincy Democrats are almost evenly split on their opinion of a progressive tax. 
  • Less than a quarter of Quincy Republicans support a progressive tax structure in the state. 
 
Illinois taxpayers are just 10 months away from some financial relief with the sunset of the 67 percent tax hike of 2011. Changing Illinois' constitution to allow for a progressive income tax would mean a tax increase for many middle- and working-class taxpayers.
