OOPS!!! I'm so sorry Nea1! I grabbed the wrong quote when I responded and I didn't even notice. That was supposed to be directed at "Mach50Thunderdart".

Thanks for the links. I didn't know about that. One of them mentioned New Mexico offering lower college tuition for illegal immigrants? What the heck is that? I know many US citizens who could use some help with tuition. ARG.

I'll be more careful. Sure could get confusing otherwise.

I've asked him(?) before why he thinks people are racist if they are against illegal immigration and got no response back. Maybe he doesn't know why.

I'm so used to certain posters referring to me and a few others as racists - Why should I have to support these people, who are here illegally, breaking the law. Breaking the law is a criminal act - why is that so hard to get????

Oh, and I'm tired of seeing Americans go without, while the illegals suck the country dry. I want them gone and gone for good -

I've seen alot over the last few years, and believe me, it' wasn't pretty. So, before you call others racist, look in the mirror - because it goes both ways - This is for those who only come on here to make the same racist remarks......Get over it -

GO TO DODGE CITY, KANSAS - you'll see stuff that would make your head spin. So stop the racist remarks, because it's so monotonous.....

Yeah, it's easy for the pro-illegal immigration people to scream racism since we happen to share a border with a poor country, Mexico, and therefore that is where the majority of our illegal immigration comes from. But I'm sure the vast majority of people on this forum have absolutely nothing against hispanic people as a race and would be just as angry if we had a flood of immigrants of any other race (white, black, asian, purple, or whatever) who were coming here illegally and taking American jobs and taking advantage of our social services meant for our legal citizens.
