I don't know. I think this story is being blown up out of proportion. And...I'm sick of the illegal Mexican deal just as much as the next person, but....

And... speaking of the flag.... I'm more insulted by all the crooked politicians who have hijacked this country and the use of the flag - by wearing it on their suit lapels at every given moment. It's almost like they are trying to convince us that they really are Americans!
I really doubt he did not know he was doing anything wrong. Illegal immigration has been in the news way to much as has the issue of Mexicans fllying our flag in dissrespectful manners.

This Mexican should be made an example that we will not tolerate our flag being flown under the flag of a foreign country. I hope everyone will call the Reno City Attorney and the Reno Police and demand charges be filed.

Wow...I am stunned, I guess all Mexicans are bad. The hate this forum generates could be measured in joules.

Forget the troops in 2 illegal wars, or Katrina...let's spend the money keeping cheap laborers from entering our country...makes a lot of sense.
And you forgot maybe we can avoid another 9/11 or worse..

They can probably still cross that Canadian border, just like they did last time!!! But keep fighting the Mexicans.

Why thank you Madam, its great to be here!!

I just wished i could've correspond to nice citizens like yourself under better circumstances and ive tried to avoid these "Political threads" for a long time because i do understand it can get heated and ive tried to stay neutral as i can in some ways understand the plight of a better life and im not knocking anyone for it, But!! i believe in order and ways of doing things.

It was'nt until i have been almost slammed or run over by some very inconsiderate drivers and they happen to look and sound much like a southern american (ie latin speaking) that ive begun to take notice and observe their behaviour. Very little disregard for Americans im afraid.

LOL!!!!

From CNN.com: This is where we've arrived in this country: You have the constitutional right to burn an American flag, but you can get into trouble for simply flying a foreign one. At least you can in the 30,000-person town of Pahrump, Nevada, which is close to Las Vegas and even closer to stepping over the line with an idiotic, intolerant and insulting ban on foreign (read: Mexican) flags.

^major news network calling it like it is. it seems it is only a crime in one town. it is not a federal or even a state law. constitutional rights take precedent over a small town with xenophobic councilmen.
