Mexican is a nationality and not a race. The only reason people call racism is because they can't debate and of course, these days the racism card means little to nothing to most people of intelligence.

Of course illegals, no matter what darn country they came from, are what all of us are against.

Hypothetically speaking, if millions of people from another country that is not Mexico, say, Germany or Indonesia, entered and reside in our country illegally, wouldn't we be just as opposed to them for the sake of our sovereignity and self determination and not because of an "us vs. them" mentality?
Yes, unfortunately some people who are pro illegal immigration throw out the race card in a feeble attempt to make those against illegal immigration back off. It has absolutely nothing to do with race of course, but that doesn't seem to matter to some.

No actually Mexican is not a race in most countries, actually in most of the world Hispanics are considered to be White.

But for some reason in the US there is a need to call it race/ethnicity, hence the White, Black, Asian and Hispanic check box on a job application.

Yet all of your posts are about mexicans, much of the time attacking their culture.

Trying to induce immigration laws by attacking a particular group will not do the trick, enforcing laws will.

That is not true of course but then, you do like to post the race card all of the time. I have always said that I was against all illegals. BTW, it is not my fault that the majority of illegals happen to be from Mexico. Next time get your facts straight before posting LIES about me.

They obviously use race because they don't have a leg to stand on. Illegal is illegal. Saying we are racist, which we aren't, makes us look bad and them look good which in their warped mind justifies their unreasonable stand on this to themselves.

Agree completely. And of course there are those of us that get personally attacked by certain other ones in here that seem to love illegals.

I support Arizona's new law and feel that other states will soon follow.

For some reason the illegals are sending billions of US dollars to Mexico. Maybe the finger pointing “racist” should tell them they are sending their un-taxed money to the wrong country.
