So, the Irish, being legal immigrants, were well-liked and welcomed into the community?

And the Irish aren't white? She was referring to white Americans of Irish descent. Here are her own words. If you think she was referring to the Irish in Ireland then you can't read. They wouldn't be trespassers in Ireland as she is suggesting. Note the reference to "white man"? And how they have contributed nothing? So that isn't showing hate for white Americans?

"I don't see no Americans. I see trespassers, Irish harps. Do a job for a nickel what a ****** does for a dime and a white man used to get a quarter for. What have they done? Name one thing they've contributed".

Yep.

It dont matter; the Irish followd the rules.

And if they messed up, getting BACK to Ireland was tough so the Irish had to make the best of things.

This means that the Irish were welcomed, right?

Hospitals aren't greedy, un-American employers. They don't pay the doctors anyway. The insurance companies mostly do. The ridiculous questions and statements that have been thrown out in here by the pro-illegals is simply mind boggling. The only thing good about it is that they are showing their pure desperation over the losing battle they know they are fighting.

I'm talking about ITINs you are including stolen SS numbers you do realize that don't you? We can talk identity theft if you like.
Balls back in your court on rereading. 75% of illegals paying taxes is straight from your link provided. Worker with fraud SS number pays into SS, payroll taxes, and all federal taxes. Who cares how many of them have ITIN?

But if that employer lowers wages, you can look elsewhere for employment. As is being implied, there is a reason no one can cut the wages of lawyers and doctors down to minimum wage. Other firms/companies/whatever will offer more than that, BECAUSE THE LABOR IS WORTH MORE THAN THAT.
After awhile a regular American has no where else to run to. They just come upon the same situation again with millions of illegals all over the country and a dying economy with scarce jobs as it is.

Read the entire post again. The poster was indeed displaying racism against whites in it. In any country where a new batch of immigrants come in they will be met with suspicion and objection at first. It is just human nature but there is no new group of immigrants entering our country today as we already have every ethnic group living here already. Today it is about legal status in this country not nationality, ethnicity or race. Today illegals are stealing jobs from Americans and that is just a fact. I couldn't care less about a one day drinking holiday for any ethnic group. It isn't relevant to illegal immigration.

White people's attitude towards the Irish? That's funny since the Irish are white. Living in the past again? Just can't admit that we don't discriminate against any immigrants today unless they are here illegally?
