I am aware of his crossed out Mexican flag.

The odds are quite good that his wife may not appreciate the insolent attitudes that all too many 'Mexicans' have because the latter may make her look bad.

Pray do tell how you equate the crossed out Mexican flag, the anti illegal stance and the wife as being racist..........................???
You cant. My wife is as American as they come and she and her mother equally are anti illegal and much more strident than I..........

I might also add I know others of American mexican heritage wh also would not honor the Mexican flag because THEY ARE NOT MEXICAN..........They are AMERICAN.........as in RED WHITE AND BLUE................

Now that being said, I am of ENGLISH back ground and I do NOT pay homage to the Queen of ENGLAND as she is NOT my sovereign liege lord.
And should I so choose to place an ENGLISh crossed out flag in my PF that would be my prerogative..............perhaps the stars and bars would be more appropriate

But what I fail to understand is why.............oh never mind..........

Whatever dude. I'm just saying don't be suprise if someone else attack you on these forums, especially members of Mexican descent; in cast you didn't know they're members of Mexican descent on CD. You don't have to honor the flag, I just don't see whats the point in disrespecting it.

Let your putative 'Mexican' sourced descendants complain-----------they, like all of us have to abide by the ToS.

I did not, I am sick and tired of our own people trying to ********* over, that's why our economy is so bad, everyone wants to be rich doing the least amount of work possible, I think a lot of our working force should be replaced with immigrants.

when your job is replaced by an illegal that is when your whining will start, unless you are retired and jobs are not even an issue for you! (which you might be in phoenix). if you think americans don't pay money in taxes to supplement their income in terms of free health care, lower cost housing, education expenses, energy assistance grants, translators, etc., you are kidding yourself. these are crushing debts that have not begun to be paid back so keep patting yourself on the back for "saving some money".

I work with a guy that is just like that. He was flipping houses and cutting every corner along the way by using Illegals. I brought up the issue that I was subsidizing his lil operation and he just laughed and said tough. Maybe on his next flipper I'll drop a dime on him

Oh, the kicker is this guy thinks he is a die hard Democrat.

the truth is that the blue collar worker, as well as the union worker, have been betrayed by the people who have opened these sanctuary cities and by the people that hire the illegal workers. i notice that the unions have done very little to stop the illegal immigration flow into this country. democrats hope to build a bigger voting base with the illegals and employers may personally think that they are saving money, but they are costing taxpayers plenty. people don't see it because it is part of the mounting debt that has not even been paid yet. it is ironic because this country was built into the country where everybody wanted to live by the blue collar workers and their manual labor and now those workers are being sold out.

Default ICE Protests

In live in the SF bay area and there were several protests today against ICE. Why are people against ICE doing their job of enforcing illegal immigration?

My wife is from a foreign country and now has a green card.. Before she arrived it took us most of a year to fill out numerous documents and pay various fees.

I have to be honest when I tell you that seeing the protests makes me feel a heavy degree of frustration. Are there protests going on in other cities? Or is this another SF bay area thing?

Because San Francisco is full of leftwing radicals.
