This guy doesn't care about this country at all, all he wants is amnesty for every illegal, and to let them keep coming across the border.

More like he wants amnesty for illegal immigrants that he has ethnic ties to. Of course the rest would have to be amnestied along with them or it would give away his agenda above.

Those young people stopped being immigrants a long time ago. They are Americans,

Well, were thedy born here? Did they enter this country legally? Have they made the effort to become citizens under the current laws?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, then the bolded statement is a blatant lie. No surprise from the supporters of the illegals.

I've seen a few 2nd generation Mexican-American kids that consider Mexico home even though they and their parents were born here. I've also seen 2nd generation Mexican-American kids that have entered school not knowing any English.

The Mexican heritage, culture and family ties are very strong. In some families there is no English spoken at home.

Yes, I think we saw that with that 2nd place Olympic winner who was brought here as a 4 year old and has been given everything this country has to offer - yet when he accepted his medal, out came the Mexican flag and his true allegience.

For the majority it seems their hearts are in Mexico but their stomachs are in the USA.

I saw a lot of that when I was in college. They'd always be displaying a Mexican flag -- on walls, in yards, on windows, on cars. Yet you'd ask them what part of Mexico they were from and it would turn out they were born in some state, 2000 miles away from that land they loved so much. Then you'd ask them what part of Mexico their parents were from and it would turn out their parents were also not born in Mexico. Then you'd find out maybe one grandparent came from Mexico.

They really are what Vicente Fox called them -- the Mexican diaspora. They will always give their allegience to Mexico but they want all the goodies of the USA.
