  1. Didn't talk about the illegal immigrant situation?

    Didn't talk about the the medical costs of treating illegals and the educational costs of teaching ESL classes?

    Didn't talk about Mexican gangs in Las Vegas?

    Oh, but let's sign an agreement that means nothing to the citizens of Nevada, and have a nice Mexican vacation.

    Thank you, Governor Sandforbrains.
