They should take that pride to Mexico and create their own dignity and destiny in their own country.

The more they receive, the more they want. Obama has created this monster. Let the ingrates rally. Perhaps their insolence will help open some of the closed eyes of the bleeding heart, if that's even possible. Rather than displaying some semblance of gratitude for Obama's amnesty gift, they demand more. We haven't seen anything yet. Wait until they start rioting and burning buildings. It's obvious the government won't do anything, but, as usual, acquiesce to their demands. So, We the People must stop tolerating this nonsense.

If he is elected again Obama will grant all of the amnesty. That is why this election is important.

Obama doesn't need to be elected again if he gets a second term & can do anything he wants.

Mexico allows American retirees to live in Mexico without requiring citizenship. They are not allowed to take a job that can be filled by a Mexican citizen. I have read many expat forums, and many retirees have stated they would love to be able to hold a part time job, but cant because of the restrictions. I have never heard of these expats taking to the streets and demanding these laws be changed. Making accusations of racism. All this would do is turn Mexican citizens against them.

I'm sure you learned in the expat forums that expats are charged at a different rate than citizens. Expats used to be able to pay into the healthcare plan set up in Mexico too and now that is being denied as well.

You wont see expats protesting in the streets over this. Expats always have the option of returning home if they don't agree with the system.

They love their own culture and their own country but the really love the American dollars and welfare handouts.

You sure won't see them demanding anything back in their own country.

No you won't because in their own countries they would be bludgeoned to death 2 minutes into their marching and demanding. They know that our younger generations are too focused on being the first person to have the newest ________________ sneakers and other materialistic BS. I doubt that it has even dawned on them how much at stake their future really is.

I think another problem is that our American youth have been indoctrinated into the PC world in our schools. They are taught we are a land of immigrants and that is all that sticks in their heads. They aren't taught that unless immigrants come legally it is a detriment to our nation and against the law. The word immigrant is meant to give them a warm and fuzzy feeling regardless of their status here. Our schools and neighborhoods are quite integrated and this just reinforces the above because they are going to school with many immigrants both legal and illegal. Don't get me wrong I don't oppose integration itself. Just my two cents worth.
