Well that will get a very emotional answer. I myself am proud because of the hard working and loving people that are in that country. Same way we have a lot of Americans that are not so proud of the government here, however, that doesn't make them any less of an American.

So sounds like you are more proud of the people, not the country. Right now I am not proud of America, we are dropping the ball, letting our citizens come second, not proud because they cannot wake up and see that the government and 90% of the candidates are against us.

Yes, quite frightening! I have a feeling that there's many more negative issues that fly under the radar.

If amnesty ever goes through in any form America won't last another five years. You think they're bold now?!

well you choose not to fly the flag, but many choose to fly the flag. even those unhappy with our current administration. people have pride in the nobility of their struggling. the revolutionary war was fought by farmers and young men alike. that is where our pride comes from. the mexican immigrants would probably love to live in a healthier mexico. they were born there, raised there, and the culture is embedded in them. they understand the struggles their people go through, and that invokes pride. that is why many of them fly the flag... not to disgrace america. they are proud people who come here looking for a better life for themselves and their families. they love america, but their roots are strong.

I havent seen the love, I have seen alot of demanding and protesting against us. the President of Mexico is a racist. He is racist against his own people. He doesnt want them there. So by us allowing this to continue, he has no reason to change the country. We are enablers, and it needs to stop.

have you tried to get to know any of the people or families? i recall pablo-me posted about his neighbor's wedding, and how finally involving himself with them changed his whole outlook. something similar could be beneficial to you.

i agree, but punishing the poor is not the answer. we need to change the political process in mexico. the buck stops there, so to speak.

yes I have, but my neighbors that are friendly are legally here. The illegal ones, no we had an altercation involving their car. I have worked with many illegals,a few, like three over the time, expressed true respect and was in the process of becoming citizens, the majority are very disrespectful to me and my family, so I dont bring my kids to the sites anymore.
