Maybe that's why they're so quick to call "racism" to every anti-illegal suggestion, because racism is what they're used to?

That's the way I see it. If you think about ir, it's just another sign of
bring Mexico to the US with them.
They don't want to leave Mexico, so it answers the question of why California and the US is looking just like Mexico.

Mexico thinks it's citizens have a right to cross ther border illegally, and they don't want anyone from farther south impinging on that 'right.'

I see one giant grey area with which Mexico is going to try to force the US to grant amnesty.

How many of us know of a Mexican of European ancestry who has illegally crossed the border? Most of the Latin American illegals we see are the indigenous, darker (brown) complexioned people. Mexico has race issues with these brown Mexicans -- if they can be rid of them -- so be it.

Is Mexico's racism problem driving the U.S. immigration problem?
This happens across ALL Latin America. There is a lot of racism in most, if not all, Latin American countries towards those who are of dark complexion. Look at the Puerto Rico Cámara de Representantes and the Senate and most people are white or tanned, even the governor and his cabinet and yet there's no outcry from the mainland liberals. Guess it goes to show, you're allowed to discriminate in the U.S., as long as the discriminator is Hispanic or black (Eric Holder for example)

Even if the illegal alien has the new card they still should get deported.

The only question they should be asked before being put on the bus back to Mexico is do they have to go to the bathroom.....

Can you please provide the article where it states that Mexico did not want the U.S. to know about the new ID's it was planning to implement? Thank you.

I remember reading an article from Mexico that stated how there were three different ID's for different things like voting, National ID and one other one. On top of that, the old ones were so outdated and had been cloned. There was a case where a drug trafficker/murder had seven different identities. This created a huge problem when the authorities were looking for him. We do not have that kind of problem. However, if the U.S. decides to get a National card, we should. I do not think Mexico will try to stop us.

No, it's because they are desperate. They know they are in the wrong but they love the play the race card.

You want to deport illegal immigrants? You are a RACIST!

It makes no sense.

If you say California is being overrun by Mexicans, you are a RACIST!

Even though it is a FACT.

It's a neverending debate.

I would like to be president someday you know? But at the same time I probably would be assassinated by illegal immigrants and their offspring because I am extremely conservative when it comes to the issue....and I would do anything in my power to have them shipped out of here.

Racism And Business In Mexico : Mexico Business
Is Mexico's racism problem driving the U.S. immigration problem?
Very possible. An amnestied woman here was caught shoplifting, they found 4 IDs on her, all 4 obtained when the big amnesty was given. They had to investigate why she had 4 separate amnestied IDs - in 3 different states and they found she had been receiving food stamps and welfare (SSI) handouts on all 4 of her ID's.

She bailed out of jail but skipped bail by heading back to her own country. The irony - along the way she had lost her Mexican ID and was unable to be employed there.

When they gave that amnesty of the 1980s, it was such a giant free-for-all that a whole lot of fraud was committed and nothing prevented someone from getting more identities with papers than just one.
