Even with an English translator...people still cant understand him.
He represents an organization that seeks to change our immigration laws to meet the needs of low skilled, primarily Hispanic migrants. If said laws laws impose huge burdens on many Americans he doesn't care because we don't share his ethnic group or speak Spanish. Most of us understand his message loud and clear in any language. We're not pandering pols, stupid criminal illegals or greedy employers so we don't support it.

Enough with the pretense otherwise. He has an agenda. You may wish to support his idiotic goals. Fortunately most sensible Americans do not.

Foriegn language? Spanish was spoken in Texas way before English...Spanish never left.
Did anyone say he was breaking the law? Oh, the melodramatics! It was insulting and rude, that's all.

In view of the fact that English is our de facto national language and the majority of Americans, Texans or otherwise speak English as their primary language your other point is irrelevant.

It is truly amazing the pathetic lengths that illegal alien sympathizers and the open borders crowd will go to to defend these people. Do you guys really not see what this man did as being disrespectful, considering that he was capable of speaking english? If your answer is "NO", then all I can say is "WOW!".
Marrying your cousing... if legal... is a personal chioce.

He is not Illegal genius.

Disrespectful to you?

The poster didn't call this man an illegal. Twisting words again? He was disrespectful to all those present.

I never said he was. But we all know the people that support this nonsense, and that is the open borders crowd.

Disrespectful to America. He has been here for 23 years already, not to mention he is the speaker for a Texas based organization.

Of course not to be disrespectful to anyone on the basis of religion yourself...

My bad. Let me fix that. It is not my intention to disrespect anyone. That WAS rude of me. Problem fixed.

See, that was simple..... But of course, the subject of this thread didn't take the high road when speaking to the committee after he was called out. That's what an upstanding person would have done.

All you would have needed to do is put a comma before "Christ's sake". Of course I knew what you meant but some like to twist words in here.
