Much of their "in your face" behavior is in a response to be treated like total crap in the US. Illegal or not, they are still humans and will react poorly to mistreatment.

And I think there are a lot of countries that have these same problems, US is not unique.
Can you help define "be treated like total crap in the US"?

Incidentally, if I felt like I was being treated like total crap in a foreign country, I know it sounds zany, but I think I would just GO HOME.

Yep...that's one of the main reasons why I left the UK and came back home.

There is no difference between the raiding of Walmarts by U.S citizens in New Orleans and this. "But hey, Lets put it on the news because they're illegal." Right?

Suuuuure, there's no difference, if that's the way you want to spin this.

P.S. I am still waiting for Mach50 to define "be treated like total crap in the US"?......

If we "put it in the news because they're illegal", why did they put the OTHERS in the news?......

Seriously, the media thrives on controversy. If they're illegal, all the better. But ANY controversy will do. My wife just talked a moment on TV the other night at 2AM as we were about to lose our house in a wild fire---and believe me, they wanted "emotion".....(she didn't give them much, LOL)

The house was spared and they soon left for more interesting people to interview...

They are targets of constant harassing? Racial discrimination?
