I always wonder about people because most, even Mexicans, don't seem that able to distinguish between a Mexican and an American Indian. I don't find it hard at all. I can watch the news and tell when it happens to be an American Indian or a Mexican. Look at the facial features and one can tell if you really study them.

I can definitely tell the difference between a Native Indian and a "Mestizo-Mexicano" or "Apache-Mexicano". Native indians noses are more straight and defined, eyes squint more, cheeks are higher and flater, and hair is usually thinner. But there are a lot of mexicans that are pure blood natives too and you cannot tell the difference.

Yes, you most certainly can tell the difference. Look at the Natives in Mexico compared to the different Natives in our country.

If we couldnt survice with ILLEGAL immigrants we would be here today because this country wasnt built up with illegal immigrants a while ago.

Ummm but maybe there would be a few mor police officers alive today without the illegals that killed them.

I agree with the other posters. If we hadn't allowed this to happen in the first place, California wouldn't BE in the position they are in. But, you know what? They'd SURVIVE the "loss".

Viva DEPORTACION.

That should say, California without an illegal. But then they could not use the race card in their fight for illegals.

I read an article a while back mentioning the labor shortage crisis that deportation would bring. It mentioned that Americans have not invented a new farm machine for harvesting crops since the mid 1900's, only improved the ones we have. The reason being, that we have so much imported labor, we do not need to invent any longer. I believe that America will survive without illegals coming to pick our fruit, that many Americans without job skills will fill those slots. It might mean ripping up their welfare checks to get them motivated, but we will survive.

Umm.. California belonged to Mexico? There were many Mexicans before the Americans stepped on this land. California was sub-divided by Spain and gave land grants to wealthy Spanish-Mexican people. ie. Alta California, first Governor was a Mexican of African Decent.
