Shallow IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR. IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY. IF YOU CROSS THE TURKEY BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE IN PRISON. IF YOU CROSS THE AFGHAN BORDER, YOU ARE SHOT. HOWEVER, IF YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDERS ILLEGALLY YOU GET: A DRIVERS LICENSE A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD WELFARE FOOD STAMPS IN ADDITION, FREE HEALTH CARE! With the above in mind, it calls attention that Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano has indicated the Obama administration is planning on giving legal status to an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants and will push for it this year. We would be adding approximately 12 million illegal aliens on the federal health care roles if the Democratic health system legislation passes. These illegals will be on the welfare role, they will want free money, and will demand free services, overload our schools and medical systems, etc and so on. Early this year we start hearing the stories out of our south- western states about massive numbers of people illegally crossing the borders and people overstaying visas. In an address at the Center for American Progress, a liberal policy group in Washington, Napolitano sought to dispel any notion that the administration, with health care, energy and other major issues crowding the agenda might postpone the most contentious piece of an immigration overhaul until after the midterm elections next November. The Center for American Progress is as progressive as you can get and blends right in with the Obama agenda.

About InsieME, United for Messina On October Ist 2009, 8 small coastal towns were devastated by heavy rains and mudslides located on the northeastern tip of Sicily, in the province of Messina, Italy. Thirty-two people lost their lives, 6 are still missing and thousands are left without their homes and personal belong- ings, and still today many are living in hotels in the city of Messina. The Sicil- ian Association of greater Boston, along with all major Italian Associations have gathered together to raise funds to help this cause. This area of Messina has be- come very familiar with the Arlington High School Performing Arts Program. In 2007, the Arlington High School Jazz Band, un- der the direction of Mr. D'Agostino, per- formed in one of these towns, Pezzolo. In February 2008, the Arlington High School String Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Tassone, and the Chorus, under the direction of Ms. Christo, also performed at the local high school.
