First thing that came to mind was, "Well, duh." I just want to know what an "Anglo-centric" culture is. Haha. I didn't know I was living an Anglo-centric life. But anyway, I don't have a problem with different cultures, but I do see a pattern and plan happening here. It's math: you got a group of people (Hispanic illegal immigrants) and you got a language and way of life. You got another group of people (those who are not Hispanic) and you got their language and way of life. Well, one group is trying to be larger than the other along with its language and way of life and eventually will drown out the other.

That's the result of not "meshing." If the incoming population (Hispanic illegal immigrants) adapted the common ways of life here and language then that result would not happen.

More and more people, Black and white, want illegal aliens OUT. So do some of us Latinos of any race. Anglo culture is using English, NOT Spanish.

You're right. More legal Latinos are speaking out against illegal immigration.

I didn't either. I thought most Americans were of German descent

The fact remains that non-hispanic white Americans are the majority in this country regardless of whether their ancestors were from Germany, England, Italy, Ireland, etc. The language that our country adopted long ago as our de facto national language was English. Those above cultures blended to make our identify culture along with the blending of those from African roots and other minorities in this country.

Now we have a growing group of Hispanics mostly from illegal immigration that don't want to blend but to make their native culture and language our identifying one by taking over in numbers. Sorry, but I object to that because it isn't a natural transformation. Hispanics are the majority in 22 countries on the Western Hemisphere, why is it considered by the pro-illegals to be objectionable and racist for non-hispanics to be the majority in the USA? They certainly aren't objecting to Hispanics being the majority in those 22 other countries. Hypocrites, much?

What's "unnatural" about it? I mean, as opposed to how "natural" it was for white people to come to the US?

Your objection that this is "mostly from illegal immigration" rings very, very hollow given your previous comments about Cubans who are in the US legally. I guess you'll just say they're not here "naturally" even if they are here legally. The "natural" argument is a good one for you since it's totally vague and you can shift around direct questions about it pretty easily.

Again with the living in centuries-gone-by. Might I point out that "white people" also came to what is now known as Mexico and Latin America. They were the Spaniards. So it wasn't just non-hispanic whites who came to this continent long ago. However, the Spanish are never demonized for that by the pro-illegals, only non-hispanics whites are. Hyocrites! None of us alive today are responsible for what our ancestors did or didn't do anyway. I am only accountable for my own actions and what our laws are today, not yesterday.

What is it with these pro-illegals that they refuse to acknowledge that we are no longer living in the 7th, 11th, 15th, or 18th centuries and that every single nation on the face of this earth today has established and internationally recognized borders and regulates immigration into their nations?

As for the Cubans, I have never said that they aren't here legally. Of course they under refuge status. I would just like to see wet foot/dry foot end and I am entitled to my opinion on that. Enough is enough!

Nobody claimed that you said that they were not here legally. Before you lecture me about how wrong I am it might help if you actually read what I'm writing.

It is funny to those of them who say that they were here before us. I guess they refused to acknowledge the indigenous people before the Spaniards came around.
