Yes, those sound pretty applicable to me. Hysterics is dead-on. You just posted about how immigrants are licking their chops at the prospects of getting your VITAL ORGANS. It's right out of the scare tactics propaganda playbook.

Yeah, the "truth" like illegals have a propensity to drive drunk? or the truth that they're out to get our livers and kidneys? or the truth that they don't pay taxes? Or the truth that they're all having babies at some astronomical rate just to scam the system? Or job creation costs are paid by taxpayers? Or when you sign a speeding ticket you're admitting guilt?

I keep hearing so many new truths in this forum...

Spoiler
and they all turn out to be false

Please explain how they are so different that they can't be compared? If it's not "remotely" similar this should be quite easy.
Why donít you post the racist sections of our immigration laws, and then we can compare them to Jim Crow. Okay?

Youíre discussing everything BUT your accusation. Why donít you stop trying to deflect, and just show us the proof that our immigration laws are racist?

Again, youíre stalling. If our immigration laws are in fact racist, it should be very easy to prove. Please post the racist sections of the law.

I see that to.

What gets me is why so many Chicanos WANT more illegal alien Mexicans here. The illegals HURT us real bad. Back in the day Cholos hated illegals. Maybe cause most Cholos DONT speak Spanish.

Racist in what way? If you mean that our system is biased towards the educated and skilled I tend to agree. If you mean that the system limits immigration or VISA's approval based on risk the individual might over stay the VISA? Yes you are correct.
If anything our standards are too low and our enforcement a joke.

It would be a little bit difficult to prove the immigration laws are racist against Mexicans when Mexicans by far make up the majority of legal immigrants (besides the most illegals).

Now it could definitely be argued that the laws are racist for that reason, far more hispanic ethnicities are allowed to come here than any other. Far too heavily one ethnic group, very little balance.
