Didn't I also read that they were booing the US National anthem?

Yeah, of course that's not hatred, is it?

If they want to boo the national anthem, they should go back to the country they came from.

They want American benefits but hate its people.

I tell you what. All those Irish people or Brazillian people or whoever cheering for the corresponding team in the world cup... I think we should kick them all out of our local bars. Clearly they hate America and are going to start the revolution against us.

Who gives a crap who someone is cheering for in a soccer game. Booing the other side is what rowdy fans do. Sheesh.
How is a city even remotely the same as a country? Seems almost child-like to make such a basic comparison. You could go even further and boil it down to neighborhoods. These people (illegal immigrants) only see the United States as a hand out. They don't care about the language, the meaning of it, hold no allegience to it, but will gladly partake of the wealth with no skin in the game.

Entitlement has become a way of life for all too many people, immigrant and citizen alike.

According to you Mexico has no problems at all, which still has me wondering why they go to great length to enter the US just to be working in fields all day or being some ones house slave..

Where did I say that Mexico has no problems at all? But we have our own problems which is a blosseming population much due to illegal immigration and a shortage of jobs and resources. I already answered your question. Did you miss it? I'll repeat it again for you. Our jobs pay more and if they produce and anchor or two they have hit the welfare jackpot.

Most illegals are not working in the fields all day. They are doing jobs that most Americans will do so you can set that argument to rest.

I never said that so don't miquote me! Mexico's problems are not our problems. We have enough problems of our own to deal with.

If you make up stuff when you read maybe. It said air horns were sounding and bouncy balls were bouncing. OMG.

Also, I thought this was something that happened at the U.S.-Japan game for some reason, mostly because i didn't even read the article until just now. It was a Mexico-U.S. game in S. California. How do you know which were people attending the game from Mexico and which were illegals? This is still about illegal immigration somehow right?

Also you guys conveniently forgot to ignore:
