What about the pompus, arrogant illegals who EXPECT us, the U.S. taxpayers, to pay for their healthcare (which WE don't get free), for their children's education, for their anchor babies when they come over for one day to have the kid, for welfare, WIC, food stamps, etc. for them??

What about THEIR attitude?

We are not ignorant - we KNOW the situation. It's all around us.

Thank You for that!!!!!!! I remember when I was on the job site and a hispanic whom only knew a little English came up to me and was very polite, I thought wow that was great, but he then turned around and in Spanish called me a very derogatory name and then continued to call me a stupid white ***** not knowing that I know Spanish. I heard all sorts of conversations through the years, how we owed them. I think alot of people don't realize how two faced many really are and take it on faith that they are polite honest people. Thats when I started to see it and started to form my opinions I have now.

About 25 years ago in SoCal; a stereotypical Hispanic walked into a friend's repair shop and saw a Latino and an 'Anglo'-------proceeded to start speaking to the Latino in Spanish.

One small problem: second Latino did not speak that language but the Anglo spoke Spanish fluently-------first Latino nearly fell over in shock.

Angry Logic

This is why a lot of people are learning spanish. This stuff goes on all the time. Innocent??? NO!! They've took the government for everything. Yet, they swear they don't speak English. They not only speak it they know more about the system than a lot of us do. Wonder how they understand so many government FREEBIES!!!!! Looks like they have done their homework.

To be totally honest with you, I have neve encountered an illegal that was either pompous or arrogant nor demanding. I found them to be very humble . I would say though, if I were greeted the way they are and treated like something on the bottom of your shoe, I would not be all to friendly either. If how they are treated is just a patch of what is shown on this forum, I don't blame them for reacting.

You obviously have never been to an immigration rally. They are vicious animals when they are in packs.

So are the anti-illegals, usually people respond to you on how you treat them. Respect goes a long way.

If anything; being here in the USA should be a felony-------and, US citizens ought to be able to place any illegal under 'citizen's arrest', hold them till the authorities show up.

Well -- I often hear Mexicans describing other Mexicans as "Mod Cut".
