"Much of the US was built with illegal Mexicans"


Please show me your link to this information please. Other than coming in and taking construction jobs in the last 25 years I dont see how they built much of America. All I see is in the last 25 years, our houses have gone to crap. Dont build them they we ( citizens) used to!!!

I can tell the difference between a Guatemalean and Mexican. I live in South Florida and we have a lot of both.
Our border should be like the Mexican/Guatemalean border. Would be a good place to train troops.
My biggest problem with illegalls is there total disregard for the law, in everything they do. And if it is so bad in your home country why come here and duplicate it. Become an American, not a Mexican-American!

From the article I posted in this thread:
Quote:
Myth: Illegal Mexican immigrants are criminals deserving severe punishment.
The typical illegal Mexican immigrant is an honest worker struggling for a better life for himself and his family, not a violent criminal.

Now you want to make them seem like bad people, why? Because America is losing the war has a failing housing market and a scapegoat is needed...<insert Mexicans>.


However, did you know that many of the illegals that you pro-legal call "Mexicans" are actually from the countries SOUTH OF MEXICO?

Mexico has electrified fences, tank traps, land mines and armed guards to keep Guatemaleans from entering, yet US has many Guatemaleans here.
Do you know the difference between a GUAT and a Mexican? Probably not.

So you can thank Mexico for trying to keep their south border sealed, otherwise US would get a lot more than you have now.
Do you think America should adopt and enforce the same immigration laws as Mexico? We should also have electrified fences, tank traps, land mines and armed guards on our border! I like that idea!

Great!!! The sooner, the better!!!

Oh, and I see the moderator removed my earlier post. It was not an attack on Machthunderfart...just a lucky guess!

I would like to know, do you ever feel prejudiced because of your mexican heritage?
If so, how do you percieve this prejudice is manifest?

And so what's the deal then with Mexico calling the United States racist/xenophobic for doing - or wanting to do - the same thing Mexico already does?

That question will never be answered because they would have to acknowledge just how hypocritical they are.

Things like adding "fart" on to someone's name really shows your maturity and intelligence level.

Until you can be a grown up and quit making fart jokes, I am just going to ignore you.
