I too would be upset. Mexicans are spending billions to fight a war against drugs. Mexican police, politicians and Mexican citizens die every day...thousands since 2005, only to find out that the American government is buddy buddy with the Mexican drug cartel thugs. Yes, they have every right to be upset.
So why are so many Mexicans demanding their right to immigrate here in unlimited numbers and demand USA citizenship be handed them on a silver platter?

We're the enemy? Then why are they so eager to come and live here? I don't see many refusing US government handouts or refugee status and aid.

Mexico actually has immigration laws that are a heck of a lot stricter than ours because it's government protects the citizens of that country in jobs and land ownership and business.

If we simply adopted Mexico's same immigration laws, Mexicans would be outraged.

I fail to see how your post is related to the current anti-sentiment of Mexicans toward the U.S. As I said, if you look at the Mexican media you will find that their anger is not about immigration reform. Its about the operation between Mexican cartels and the US Government.

Its not a credible source. Look at the Mexican news links and you will see there is no anti-sentiment over no illegal immigration reform. Its about the weapons but the US media will have us believing whatever is convenient to them.

This "anti-American sentiment" doesn't seem to be stopping illegals from coming here.
