What do you disagree with Benicar? I would say all of those predictions are what this forum generally wants. Are you just upset with his own opinion of that prediction?

While I agree with certain aspects of his predictions, I object to his attempt to portray illegal immigration as an exclusively “Latino” issue. They’re the first to spew accusations of racism and xenophobia whenever an opponent mentions Hispanics in connection with illegal immigration. Yet, they consistently exclude other racial and ethnic groups. Why not simply mention “proponents” of so-called immigration reform must flex their muscles, rather than make this a Latino imperative.

You can’t have it both ways. You can’t demonize people for mentioning Hispanics and illegal immigration in the same breath, and then ONLY mention Hispanics when you’re discussing the issue. At the very least, it’s hypocritical.

His entire driver’s license section is BS. According to him, illegal aliens should be issued licenses. Otherwise, it will increase fatalities due to having untrained drivers on the road. Only a narcissistic fool would drive without first receiving instructions. Even if a license is impossible, I would not expect any decent human being to get behind the wheel of a car unless they know how to drive. There is NO excuse.

He refers to opponents of Birthright Citizenship as nativists, and also uses other terms intended to disparage, such as “kooks” and “anti-Hispanic.” I’m not sure what his motive is for mentioning "anti-Muslim racism" and Ground Zero. I wasn’t aware we had an illegal Muslim problem. Perhaps he has us confused with Europe.

His Comment,

Border Security. "Expect the Obama administration to continue deporting more criminal aliens. Look to Arizona Sheriff Joe Arapaio to continue his misguided focus against illegal immigrant families for all the wrong reasons."

First of all why is it that they are 'Criminal Aliens' when
he refers to Obama and then they are 'Immigrants' when
he refers to Sheriff Joe, seems to me they all are ILLEGAL
ALIENS

It's real clear that this Wilson guy along with Obama are
the 'MISGUIDED' ones

Obama will NOT enforce the laws he took an oath to uphold

Reporter Wilson is very clear about his support for ILLEGAL ALIENS and regurgitating left wing propaganda and actually has no idea what he's talking about

Great post, Benicar. I am sick of these Hispanic hypocrites also. Everything to them is racism against Hispanics in regards to our immigration laws and ending birthright citizenship for illegal aliens. They are very transparent in their agenda to fill this country up with Hispanics via illegal immigration.

Ironic, considering the "Latino" countries of origin that are ineligible for the Diversity Lottery participation, Mexico, El Salvador, Columbia and Guatemala. Guess that's why he'd like to see Illegal not mean illegal...............
