That would be an ideal situation. I think when you stop seeing people as human beings and deserving to being treated as such, we lose something that we all should have, and that is compassion toward your fellow man.
Now your sounding more realistic.

But again, I have to ask you.....do you actually know who you want to support the most?
(example)...First you say that your against "illegal Immigration", then you say they're nothing but nice, hard working people trying to make a better life, so they deserve to stay. But now you suggest stopping the cycle of giving them more opporitunities,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I'm confused

Those fools flying the Mexican flag 2 years ago in the illegal immigrants 'rights' rallies made a fatal blunder-------all it did was to enrage the USA.
C'mon, the Irish never spoke English -- ever hear one TALK!!!!

That in bold was written by a previous poster.

Below is my response to the previous poster...got it

Easy there; Irish English is closer to our American English than to 'BBC' annunciation

Thanks so much.
Same for the KKK, the Nazi's and these folks. Igronance always causes hate in people. It is ignorant to think that Mexicans think we should leave and they get their "land" back. Not going to happen. There is a thing called war. Wars have be waged for thousands of years. Now, if they would have won the war with US, they would still have their land. Don't hear any of them crying about the Spanish? I say if you want your "land" back, have your government of Mexico declare war, and let the winner keep all. Lands have been taken by other people and "tribes' since the begining of time. They need to get over it. And if they don't like it - GET THE F*** OUT!

Ignorance causes hate in people, what are you doing about it then?

There is no real compassion with massive illegal immigration because it doesn't do a thing to improve things for the people left behind. It benefits those who come here, makes things worse for the rest remaining in Mexico.

Millions of people packing up to head over the border are not investing, are not building, are not creating jobs in their own country. Many abandon young children, many abandon their elderly in order to come here to chase dollars. Broken families, emptied villages -- what good does that do?

Compassion would be for us to quit our patronizing attitude towards Mexicans -- we're not exactly bringing in boatloads of starving Africans or Asians. And all this false cheap labor compassion isn't helping Mexico become a more stable country, it's now more unstable than it's been in a century.

And the irony is there are some neo Nazi groups in Argentina. Chile as well as Spain----------never mind the above would be counted as Hispanic here in the USA. Google Armada Blanca
