So is this what they call diversity? The first four countries listed are all Latino countries. No other country or ethnic group even holds a pimple on the butt of Latino illegals in our country. Look at Mexico. It is astounding.
so whats your point? would there be any diffrent a problem if the first four countrys were from the Pacific Rim?

There sure wouldn't be the amount of uproar from the people supporting those doing it now, who just happen to be supporters of Hispanic illegal immigration.

A lot of the Indians are students with expired visas...many of which are actually paying taxes (and NOT using the welfare systems). Doesn't make it right, but the difference is staggering.

I have to agree. There is a huge difference between people that want to work, pay taxes and be a member of Society that have an expired Visa and those that stampede across the border to pillage our social service system. Two wrongs don't make a right but there is a huge sliding scale.

The point was to show which countries/ethnic groups are here in the largest numbers illegally. You have a problem with statistics? If we are to remain a diverse country and yet retain our identifying culture it is particularly alarming that they aren't coming here in diverse numbers.

I feel sorry for Mexico. Mexico is such a big country with many resources, they have a big potentional. Stupid corruption, it detroys nations. They made a poll in Mexico a couple months ago and said that 1/3 of the people in Mexico would immigrate to the Nunited States if they had the opportunity to. I hate those Meican politicians, they all leave office with millions of dollars and their own military, WTF is going on? Read about Salinas de Gortari, he's the President who left office with more millions than any other president in Mexico, he became rich while being President . The current president doesn't convince me at all. Since he assumed office, Mexico has been more violent than ever! I feel sorry for its citizens.
