BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - It was just another schoolyard basketball game until a group of Hispanic seventh-graders defeated a group of boys from Alabama.
The reaction was immediate, according to the Mexican mother of one of the winners, and rooted in the state's new law on illegal immigration.
"They told them, You shouldn't be winning. You should go back to Mexico,' " said the woman, who spoke through a translator last week and didn't want her name used. She and her son are in the country illegally.

It's not nice or right, but that type of bullying (in relation to Mexicans or someone assumed to be from South of the Border) has been going on for a LONG time. When I was growing up, back in the 90s, there was always some sort of picking-on going on about someone being Mexican or something. I saw this article the other day and it was obvious that they are trying to make it seem like the Ala. law brought this on. That stuff has been going on forever.

English is a very difficult language to learn especially when your parents do not speak it. I know first hand that anti-Hispanic prejudice in the US has been going on for basically ever, but I do believe that this law has exacerbated the problem by introducing the issue to very young children, and because it revolves around the school system (bullying's most natural habitat).

Second-generation residents (the children of first-generation immigrants), generally do speak English.

Bullying should never be tolerated. Some kids have resorted to suicide. Kids can be so mean.

Oh give me a brake. The first thing any illegal learns
is how to cry & whine. Probably its the first thing they
teach thier kids. Makes me want to puke.

Its all propaganda and they use it like a whip. If they
don't get thier way they are being "bullied" or"picked
on" and you must be a "racist" gringo. Mexicans try
to do a lot of picking-on other races. La Raza isn't a
biased group or any thing, huh?

If they feel kicked around, I have a suggestion, Go
Home and don't come back.
