1) America's a large country, only certain areas of the country have a Mexican immigration "problem".
2) Assimilate into what? America has always been and will always be a multicultural and racially diverse country.
3) Why do you feel that Mexican and presumably other non-white immigration will turn America into a 3rd world country?
4) Contrary to popular belief America was not a country "built by White people".
5) Most Mexican and African Americans have been in North America longer than the vast majority of European Americans.

I agree. It is hard to absorb such a large population of people, especially when most of them are low skilled workers and many don't speak English. The illegals of course should be cut back to as little as possible and the legal immigrants from Mexico should be drastically reduced , better absorb the ones who are here. The percentage of foreign born in the US is the highest it's been in 100 years, most from Latin American and mostly Mexican and poor.

NOO I actually mean just Mexicans, not all hispanics. Im of Puerto Rican and Dominican decent myself, I personally believe the US could use a whole lot more Caribbean Hispanics, just no more Mexicans, please no more Mexicans. Theres too much of em, even in NYC, where PRs were once overwhelming dominanted, Mexicans are starting to encroach on PR dominance. Mexicans make all other hispanics look bad. I just wish the US could build a huge wall to keep these lil brown dwarfs out!

And too allthe people saying, Americans "stole" their land, and they are getting it back thru their numbers.. is dumb.
US and Mexico had a war, and the US won and got that land fair and square.

Our biggest challenge is our surplus of ignorant xenophobes.
