Is it just a coincidence that Mexico has brown people in it and Canada is mostly white?
Could you see the logic of people thinking this is racist/ethnically biased?
Personally I don't have anything AT ALL against Mexican people. I find them to be exceptionally warm and friendly. I will always welcome them into our country with open arms as long as they enter legally. For this reason I don't understand why you have called me a racist in other threads. #1 You don't know me at all. For all you know I could be a legal Mexican immigrant. #2 I have always stated I am against illegal immigration and the drain it is causing on our resources because we cannot handle the sheer numbers. I have NEVER stated I am against Mexican illegal immigrants above others. Nor will I ever.
This doesn't seem to matter to you. You are bound and determined to call people racist. I have no idea why you are so inclined to do so. All I did was ask you why you feel the way you do. I guess you didn't like that.
Could it be people who mention cracking down on the Mexican border instead of the Canadian border do so because the number of illegal Mexicans is extremely high and the number of illegal Canadians is extremely low? Why do you jump right to the color of ones skin as the reason? I don't look for racism everywhere and I'm very sorry that you apparently do.

Default Research what you are talking about

I believe if all the people in the country--some educated, some ignorant--who were offering their opinions on this issue actually did some research into the subject, they might not have so xenophobic of an outlook. I did. See Mexican Illegal Immigrants - The Rest Of The Story - Home.
