Before you can sit there and converse with one another about the problems you encounter with mexicans and ask why "they" are the way they are, I challenge you to actually explore our culture, talk with "they", to really put yourself in their shoes. Then let me know if you still feel the same way.
I have and do everyday, I have to go to jobsites and work with them, and me being female, I seem to draw more attention, and they love to give it. I have plenty of legal hispanic friends, that I adore and love to enjoy their culture while I am in their home. thehispanic citizens I know treat me with respect and I in turn. But the illegals I have had to work with over the last 15 years, have shown their contempt and lack of respect for this country. Most I have had to speak to hate the US and are here to pay for their retirement in mexico. This has been my experience anyway.

I am sorry that I went outside of the US borders when I said IRONY, I tend to think of things on a world-scale violence.

US has this ideology: not on our soil, not our problem, type of violence.

Who's more of a violent country?
Mexico - current wars 0
US - 2 wars, 700 bases in 36 countries.

Stating US and Peace in the same sentence is considered an Oxymoron.
So pick apart the Mexican Anthem all you want, US is the true global bully.

I'm trying to figure out if this is a common practice across the US and what is the purpose? Is it to stake a symbolic claim, shade their vehicle, detour ICE from their real address? I'd love to know.
Tell them to get their junk out of your area and keep it out. I had someone do this to me once and I got out my tow strap and hooked it up to my Land Cruiser and towed their car off about a block down the street from where they parked it, in MY drive. Yes their car was parked, park engaged in the transmission and their tires squealed all the way down the street. No, I don't care if their crap got damaged or not. I didn't have any more problems after that however.

This thread is pointless, if you really need to attack each other, find somewhere else to do it.
