Illegals is nothing about race! it is about those who love to break the law? And then willing to bleed us dry.

Why should anyone like illegal immigrants? Should we also like American thieves, liars and other lawbreakers? Most Americans oppose illegal immigration because for one it is against the law and because of the negative impact they have on our country. It has nothing to do with racism especially since illegal immigrants aren't all one race. If someone is truly a racist they are racist against a particular race whether they be here legally or illegally.

This proves it is not racism but just a simple illegal problem.
Can skin tone be considered racist? There are only 3 races in the world, but many shades. Besides, anti's here think they can spot illegal aliens, what discriminating factors are they using?

What if someone is black and white mix, are you saying people who complain about them can't be racist?

It doesn't make any sense at all.

I don't recall anyone saying they can spot an illegal immigrant just by looking at them. I know I certainly haven't made such a claim and I doubt anyone else in here has either.

Complainiing about illegal immigrants is not being racist.

It has been said, you're pretty new here.

If you don't think there are people who hate Mexicans on your side then you are delusional. It doesn't mean everyone against illegal immigration is, but there are quite a lot who are.

Well, I have been posting in here for about 3 months now and I have never read anyone saying they can spot an illegal immigrant just on looks alone. Of course there are those who hate Mexicans and other nationalities but they don't represent the majority of anti-illegal immigrants. There are some reconquistas on the pro-illegal immigrant side also but they probably don't represent the majority of them. Never dwell on the fringe element. It doesn't matter if someone hates Mexicans and illegal immigration because all that matters are those who are here illegally in violation of our immigration laws.

Uh; you're gonna have a few hardcore racist nutjobs in ANY group of people. La Raza is full of them so it's NOT just "anglo white" people.

Pot, kettle, black!
I come from Pelosi country and I don't think it is a rumor....sigh.
