Listen to yourself: "Keep the flame of hate alive." Followed by no less. Do you actually think this is a joking matter? I assure you, the citizens of this country are NOT laughing. Furthermore, "hate" is not the impetus for most opposition to illegal immigration. In fact, I don't know anyone who actually hates illegal aliens. But, I do know many who hate what illegal immigration has done to this country. Had you ever experienced REAL hate, as I have, you would certainly recognize the difference. However, at this rate, anger and frustration will ultimately manifest itself as hate. You had better hope that doesn't happen. If it does, I guarantee, you won't be laughing.

You need to understand time is not on your side. I know people who were initially staunch illegal alien sympathizers, who now oppose them. The longer they remain in this country, making brazen demands, arrogantly waving foreign flags, burdening taxpayers, and committing crimes, their support will continue to wane. It's like a festering boil. At first, it seems rather benign, just a slight irritant. There's little pain or inflammation. But, left untreated, it becomes an excruciating, toxic, and potentially life-threatening condition, which can no longer be trivialized or ignored.

Contrary to your belief, illegals WILL leave if we stop coddling them, start enforcing our laws, and make their lives in this country unbearable. We have more than enough evidence of their willingness to "self-deport" from their immediate reaction to the mere proposal of an anti-illegal law. Rather than laughing, if you truly care about illegal aliens, you should encourage them to return home and fight for a better life, before your "imaginary" hate becomes a reality.

Sounds like you really dislike Hispanics. I thought the issue wasn't about ethnicity, guess i was wrong.

So facts equates to dislike? If these were mostly Chinese illegals doing the same thing and it was pointed out what would be the difference? Advocates for illegals are the ones who can't stand for the facts to be told without turning it into an "ethnic" argument.

If the facts you quote are all negative, then yes, unless you like negative things. Do you?

The facts are about 80% of all illegals are hispanic and most hispanic pols support amnesty for illegals. The facts are that less than half of all grown up illegals have a high school diploma, less than 5% of all illegals work in agriculture and many do not speak English. The facts are that more than half are from Mexico, home to the world's richest man, a country with national health care and a five percent unemployment rate. The facts are that most illegals constitute a net burden for most Americans. They directly compete with our own poorest citizens for jobs and public resources as well as increase taxes on our own struggling middle class by often walking away from medical bills and increasing local property taxes by crowding schools and driving on roads without insurance.

If the facts about illegals are negative it is because their actions are negative. No one has the right to break into this country without permission, let alone demand social services from our citizens and then accuse us of the basest of motives when we ask them to stop.

I am sorry many illegal alien sympathizers mistakently think otherwise. Incidentally there have been quite a number of racist remarks in this thread, nearly all of them by hispanics defending illegals on the basis of sharing an ethnicity with them. Where is your outrage at such actions?

Let's go back to your original statement, shall we?

"Sounds like you really dislike Hispanics. I thought the issue wasn't about ethnicity, guess i was wrong".

The poster you were addressing was referring to the illegal kind not Hispanics in general but you chose to turn it into a dislike for all Hispanics. It is called race baiting.

That's what I would like to know. Why is it ok with the defenders of illegal aliens to make or read all kinds of negative remarks about white people/Americans but not ok to make any negative remarks about illegal aliens? I find it particularly troubling when anyone is a non-hispanic white themself and yet they remain silent over this.

I just reported this offensive post. Will the defenders of illegal aliens do likewise when it is white people who are under attack in here? Somehow I doubt it.

The Concept that every American with Hispanic heritage supports Illegal immigration is false. If Mexico had its act together we wouldn't have a problem.

The fact remains that 60% of Mexicans are Mestizos. Who in here has said that "every" American of Hispanic heritage supports illegal immigration?
