You forgot Massachusetts.

I met the mayor of a small city north of Boston that is 71% Hispanic and he was offended when I asked him to talk to me in ENGLISH and not Spanish because I do not speak that language. The frickin MAYOR! He has been in this country for more than 30 years. (I heard he came here illegally in the 70's and was given amnesty in the 80's)

His voter base wants him kicked out of the office due to massive corruption. He spends more time sending gifts aka an ambulance, a school bus back to the Dominican Republic than actually fixing the problems the city that elected him is having.

SO much for assimilation and loyalty to the residents of the city he was elected to lead.

Our employees show all the necessary paperwork legally required to be shown.

Oh I am sure he is loyal to the 71% Hispanic population in that city.

*sigh* Here we go. Just to be certain, you think breaking the law is not patriotic hence it makes them unpatriotic by definition, correct?

Ok, well, by your line of argumentation anyone who speeds or comes to a rolling stop at a stop sign is unpatriotic.

Why did you bother to call this post out and not ChicagoNut's who I was responding to?

Or maybe we just question ones patriotism when they can't even be bothered to enter the country leagally?
We can call someone who breaks into a home a guest or even a squatter an occupant.
But that doesnt make them loyal to you the owner or even respectful. In fact quite the opposite can be assumed.
