Not this Hispanic.

That Caucus is becoming my enemy. I think they HATE Chicanos.

Obama should do it. Then when the first illegal who escapes notice because of this action kills an American the GOP can plaster the airwaves with Willie Horton type ads and cruise to victory.

What's unbelievable is our federal governments absolute disregard for the Constitution when it comes to protecting the American people from an invasion of illegal immigrants.

The few thousand people who are caught and deported is only window dressing designed to appease us.

They have created a lot of unnecessary tension among whites and Hispanics in this country. We are becoming a country divided.

We simply do not need to have the tension.

No matter how much screaming there is on the side from the pro illegal immigration crowd, right is right and wrong is wrong.

It is not racist to expect our government to stop people from breaking our laws.

It does not matter how nice these people are, it does not matter what opportunities they are looking for, it doesn't even matter that they are fellow human beings.

We need to do the correct, legal thing and send the illegals back, and plug the enormous hole in our borders.

All other nations do this.

In the early '50s Chicano/Chicana was used much like we use Hispanic today. In high school we called all Hispanic kids Chicano or Chcana. They even called each other that. It wasn't meant to be derogatory, just a sort of identifier like today someone might refer to black kids, white kids, Asian kids, or Hispanic kids. I don't remember ever hearing it used in reference to an adult though.

Just wanted to point out that the definition of the word "chicano" is not the topic of this thread. Please stay on topic. Thank you.
Yac.

The Hispanic lawmakers had asked Obama earlier this week to focus immigration resources on criminals.

How do these morons expect us to find criminals without checking finger prints? Do we give them some sort of online multiple choice exam instead?

Exactly! I'd like these anti-American traitors to explain that one.
