Apparently the entire world is racist.

Quote:
Just as Americans want Mexicans out, Mexicans, who might be tolerant of their country as a passageway north to the United States, have no patience with the undocumented Guatemalans and Hondurans increasingly falling short of their destinations. Nor are their feelings of resentment unique. Around the world, the welcome mat for outsiders is being rolled up on a scale rarely seen in history as economies continue to struggle and worries about cultural identities rise.

I guess they'll just have to come to the USA instead where Obama is still promising a big amnesty to anyone who wants in on it and will break any law to get here.

How about deportation of anyone on the basis of illegal status?

From the office of the obvious:
snippet



"The first reason is that the actual number of undocumented workers relative to the population is much higher [in the US] than in most European countries," says Jonathan Chaloff, an analyst with the international migration division of the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

Getting back on topic, this is a sign where the people from the 1st world nations are slowly but surely starting to reject the concept of multiculturalism because it is creating social instability in all countries that practice it. A country cannot survive when multiple cultures co-exist in the same boundaries. Look at Czechoslovakia, Austria-Hungary, Yugoslavia, USSR. There even exist fragile unions such as Spain and Belgium. Point is, we live in an age where, in my opinion, either we completely stop all immigration from countries other than the UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, or we have to force the new immigrants here to leave their old ways behind, and to accept being American through and through, or leave. Take your pick.
