Common, ignorant double standard. The ones who yell racist are usually the racists.

It's amazing that what is most likely a troll post will generate three pages of replies.

Wouldn't you say from the day Europeans stepped on American soil? did the native-indians have a say in this?

Gringo isn't really racist. It refers to a North-American Anglo. It was a term who's origins are debated. Could of came out from the time the U.S invaded mexico, they wore green army suits. The natives could have said "Green-Go!" saying that they wanted them to leave hence the Gringo. Same thing when Mexicans call Blacks "Negros" Negro is the color Black in Spanish.

Didn't the native Americans also immigrate? Were there any laws then?

The Native-Americans were here before anyone. If you believe that the human race began in Africa, then you know that the Native-Indians were the first on this soil and then trickled down to Mexico and all of South America.

They immigrated here. Then Europeans immigrated here. I'm sure your aware of this. Now its centurys later and the world is full of borders. Most Americans want the border sealed.

If you people need a scapegoat, blame yourselves...blame yourselves for voting for Dubya, because he's the one who has got you all into this mess.

Stop blaming immigrants for everything....it makes you look like a bunch of racists. MOD CUT....immigrants this, Hispanics that, immigrants that, etc, etc.

Illegals aren't stealing your jobs....globalization is. How many Americans strive to mow lawns, work at gas stations or sell flowers in the street?

Immigrants come to this country FOR THE SAME REASON THAT YOUR ANCESTORS CAME HERE: FOR A BETTER LIFE. They are only human, just like you.

Go learn Spanish or something. Most developed countries are bilingual, or even trilingual.

Impression of a gringo: "Oh my god, dem' Hispanics are a commin', speakin' all that Hispanic stuff....oh nooooooooooooooo!!!!"
Mexican: "Que pasa??"
really dont lump the illegals and legal immigrants together. They are altogether different group of people. One is responsible, law abiding, somewhat educated, english speaking and the other most but not all, non english speaker, broke the country law, not so much educated group.
***** about the immigration....how about you go thru the process of immigration then you have the right to *****..other than that..please leave the country


Another thing..dont even said ..the europeans, the asians or even the latinos came here long ago...back then this country is newly founded, law back then is different then now. blah blah....
also.
