Do you think ALL illegals come from Mexico? That's kinda racist, ain't it?

No...but most do. So my point stands. No one is really concerned with illegal "Russian" immigrants. If they hear Russian in L.A. it is "diverse culture"...if they hear Spanish in L.A. it is "Illegal Immigrant"...

Let me put it this way:

If we were inudated by 20 million illegal immigrant Shanty Irish of 1850----------I would be just as upset.

And; I look like a stereotypical Irishman (strawberry blond hair, blue-gray eyes, etc) so the 'race card' would not apply.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing AZBear! My biggest concern is that since it's so close to the border, I would be afraid of uprisings. Those of us who live in Arizona have enough illegal immigrant problems.

Enforcing the immigration laws and protecting the sovereignty of the country is not "racism."

They WOULD be, if Russian immigrants behaved the way MEChA does. As a matter of fact, Russia has historic claims to California (google "Fort Ross"), which they LONG AGO lost out on. Today, there are no Russian illegals, blocking traffic, throwing rocks, tearing down American flags, and demanding California be "returned" to Russian rule. And Russian government officials don't travel to the US to pressure OUR government to allow "rights' and special privileges for Russian illegals who are here. And Russian illegals don't demand drivers' licences, or voting rights, or government services in the Russian language. Maybe THAT's one reason "no one is really concerned" with them....do you suppose?.....
