Putting the Dem in Demographics?

Illinois naturalized 512,000 new citizens in 2005 -- up from 378,000 in 1995.

The state's GOP leadership will have a little tougher time sleeping tonight.

From your Chicago Tribune:
The proportion of legal immigrants in the country who have become U.S. citizens has reached its highest mark in 25 years, according to a study released Wednesday by the Pew Hispanic Center in Washington.

The population of naturalized U.S. citizens reached 12.8 million in 2005, the latest year available ***

The research also showed the number of Mexican immigrants naturalized in 2005 hit 1.6 million. ***

The numbers show 20 percent of eligible U.S. permanent residents from Mexico became naturalized citizens in 1995. In 2005, that rose to 35 percent.
Dear Illinois Republicans,

Please, nominate Jim Oberweis -- for something -- anything.

I don't care for what or for which office. Heck, nominate him for all of them.
Please, just let the nativist ice-cream headache be the standard bearer for the GOP in Illinois.
