Interesting article. Even though the title is different than the discussion, It talks a lot about the illegal immigration issue if you read the article on the link.

To use a rather popular meme around this forum, what does this have to do with illegal immigration?

This seems like a pretty transparent attempt to rile up sentiment against a particular ethnic group, regardless of their immigration status.

But I know that can't be the case, because everyone here is adamant that they aren't bigoted and they only care about THE LAW.

The article might, but what specifically does the part you highlighted have to do with it?

Quote:
Mexicans don't believe that Mexican emigrants who become U.S. citizens cease to be Mexicans. They are always considered Mexicans. Even grandchildren or great-grandchildren of Mexican immigrants, born in the U.S., are still considered Mexicans.

It means that the anchor babies born here aren't Americans either.

I think it means he agrees. He doesn't consider Mexicans that go through the legal process and follow THE LAW to be Americans either.

Agreed, anyone naturalizing as a U.S. citizen has to go through legal residency first...

The focus is not on illegal immigration for the topic...

Except that it's illegals ranting and raving how they must be handed USA citizenship -- and it's not because they truly wish to be Americans, it's all about the easy money and government benefits.

Apparently, neither does the former president of Mexico.

Quote:
"We strongly protest the unilateral measures taken by the U.S. Congress and government that have only persecuted and exacerbated the mistreatment of Mexican undocumented workers," he said. "The insensitivity toward those who support the U.S. economy and society has only served as an impetus to reinforce the battle ... for their rights."

He also reached out to the millions of Mexicans living in the United States, many illegally, saying: "Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico."
