Why don't Americans get to vote on immigration/illegal immigration?

Why do Black Leaders Support Illegal Alien Amnesty?

Why Today's Immigrants do not assimilate.

etc. There are tons of these posts.

Of course, you eventually learned to slap that "VIA ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION" on there so you could hide behind the "illegal" qualifier, but every once in a while you slip up and reveal that you actually don't care about legal status at all. You are even confirmed FURIOUS about the LEGAL immigrants coming in and changing your "white majority culture".

Government says all kids, legal or illegal, are entitled to K-12 education

Yeah, there's no correlation at all. It's just a weird coincidence that anti-immigrants will tell you how the vast majority of illegals are hispanic, but then as soon as bigotry comes up, they mysteriously forget that and they're all just some unknowable mix of cultures and ethnicities.

You quite obviously have a problem keeping the definitions of words separated. You constantly interchange "bigotry" with "racism", "ethnicities" and "cultures" and seem fine with it, until you are called on it and then claim innocence.

In other words, you are admitting that you have no basis in fact for your "arguments", just trying to spin it as you go along.

Not at all. I don't have some special or controversial definition of it that I use.
No? You just accuse anyone who disagrees with your definition of being a racist.

So you are biased against yourself? Nice of you to admit it.

What are you talking about? Of course I have a problem with it, that's why I want the laws changed
Gee, and you don't see this as favoring the illegals, huh? Don't do anything against them, just change the law to make them more comfortable. Then expect everyone to bow down to your self proclaimed brilliance and accept your solution. Another definition of a bigot.

Agreed. But the illegals will keep coming as long as the attitude of certain posters is trumpeted as "the way it should be".

Yes, ending unjust laws "favors" people that the unjust laws are unjust to.

Ending slavery "favored" slaves.

ham-handed "zingers" probably sound clever in your head but they're not an actual argument nor are they a refutation of anything else. But keep handwaving, it suits you.

It's hilarious how you guys see a post that lays out why certain positions are racist and you pile on a bunch of NO YOURE RACIST and think oh, those are somehow equivalent arguments and everything cancels each other out.

Well the primary counterargument is something ridiculous like "XYZ isn't a race" as if that somehow excuses the bigotry. Using bigotry just gives the bigots less wiggle room. Sorry if that makes you uncomfortable.

Again!!!!

There is no way in Hades to compare an illegal with a slave. That is preposterous.

If our immigration laws are unjust, explain how changing them helps the United States.

If we allow people from specific countries only, we are racist and bigoted. If we allow unfettered entry from any country, do you see any problems with that?
