Okay.
Are you really that dense that you can't see that I wasn't addressing your facts and instead was making fun of the idea that it's normal to round up and refer to every member of a group as the majority subset of said group?

Let me educate you and your little tag team of tax raises and illegal defenders.

During the 1880 - 1920 wave of immigration it is true that most legal immigrants did not have a high school diploma. However, most Americans did not. In fact, according to a study most immigrants during that time period were actually better educated than the general population. They were more likely to have an important skill.

The same is not true today. Today at the very minimum you are expected to have at least a high school diploma to get even very paying jobs. Do you dare deny this? Do you dare deny the fact that our own high school drop outs are far more likely to have serious problems in the workforce? Why on earth should Americans welcome people who don't even have such qualifications? What will a foreign national who has very little education and does not speak English add to our society?

Other than the change to make misguided illegal advocates feel better about themselves?

How are high school drop outs who don't speak English going to succeed in our economy when our own cannot? And why should we penalize them merely to satisfy Mexico's upper class and our own greedy employers?

What should we do when they, as most do, don't succeed economically?

It is not MY fault that someone is poor and uneducated. That describes literally over a billion people. It is most certainly not MY problem to fix by bringing them here.

That problem has ten thousand better fixes that importing them here and hurting Americans fiscally.
"Tag team", lol Now that's funny and probably the truth since they all pretty much arrived in here about the same time.

If you want to stick with your definition, it needs to go on another sub-forum...
Oh come on now. Most of the illegal aliens are Mexicans and you know it. Nit picking much?

Like, the genocide of American culture sounds pretty bad. Not totally accurate, but I give you permission to use it.

It is genocide of the American culture.

If a commenter means illegal aliens and not a nationality, they need to say "illegal aliens"...

One definition is unequal to the other...

But stereotyping is ok if it's over 50%

Lol, yes retreat back to your moral highground. Perhaps if your rafts weren't lashed together with disingenuous anecdotes, broad generalizations based off suspect statistics, and irrational reasoning you would be able survive out in the rough waters of open debate for longer periods of time before you had to come scrambling back to the rapidly shrinking moral atoll with the tibirón nipping at your heels.

Now, of course, you can make these kinds of claims in a non-literal sense and expect people to take you seriously. But when you are attempting to invoke imagery of huge numbers of people being systematically murdered in your attempt to explain why it's so terrible that the cashier at the local McDonald's barely speaks English, you should not expect to be taken seriously.
