It's the typical american attitude of "Oh my gawd, someone did us wrong" while they do wrong to others. Making big news of the 2 who got killed in Mexico while keeping it quiet when it comes to illegal immigrants getting killed.
Pot meet kettle.

Exactly who do you think is killing most illegal immigrants?

A. Their own actions (like crossing in a blizzard or 105 degrees.
B. Their smugglers while still South of the border.
C. Illegal immigrant smugglers North of the border.

in that order and since most of it takes place in Mexico why would it be "big headlines" in the US? It's big news about these agents because they are US agents.

^^Are the families of the 2 agents going to sue Mexico for $25 million? It's only fair.

Then stay OUT of the USA if youre an illegal alien.

I said before I stay OUT of Mexico unless I have my papers. I value living.

Yes I am. Interesting how no american wants to answer that question. No need to answer, you already did.



Reactions would be different if the immigrants were of caucasian origin, huh? This topic about illegal immigration IS about race too. Can't ignore that.
Try reading the numerous posts in here where we have expressed outrage at the employers and take off your biased glasses rather than throwing out unfounded accusations.

No American wants to answer what question? Just what question did I supposedly answer?

No, the reaction would not be different if most of these illegals were white or any other race. There is that race card again that I told you that you were throwing out. No, the topic of illegal immigration isn't about race. It is only about race with the pro-illegals.

Who are these Americans who don't complain about the employers who hire illegal aliens? Certainly no one is here and throughout all the forums and blogs that I read I hear the same thing in them. Try reading all the numerous posts in here about the employes before you throw out false accusations and I suggest you get that chip off your shoulder because it is one of the hallmarks of the pro-illegals that we have learned to recognize.

The "typical" American attitude? Does that mean that you are not an American then?

And I am sure we could start listing the murders by natives. Manson comes immediately to mind. But there are a few thousand others if you really want to go there.
from this past weekend, can you find any American city with a death toll like that in only 72 hours? Yes or no. read the link

Even by Juarez standards, a deadly 72 hours - CNN.com

and answer my question, yes or no.
