What do you have against people from Mississippi? And for that matter, what do you have against people who are Arab? Are you implying that Mississippi doesn't have any Arab residents?

Have you ever been to Mississippi! There's probably three arabs, eight Mexicans, and a thousand asians. I'm implying there's no diversity, because there isn't!

No big deal? Tell you what. I'll break one law by pitching a tent on your front lawn and taking up residence. The police will refuse to remove me. When you ask me to leave, I'll refuse, and for good measure, I'll call you a racist and criticize your wife's cooking. No big deal.

Don't forget to demand your rights while you are living on his property. If he doesn't give into you right away, march up and down his lawn, screaming and protesting! Oh, and if you fall and injure yourself (after he pays for all medical bills) sue him because you hurt yourself on his property!

I'll see more than 20 Mexicans if I walk out my front door. Ever been out to the Central Valley bud? The thing is, I have absolutely no problem with MEXICANS, I have a problem with ILLEGAL ALIENS OF ALL RACES. And is there something wrong with being a redneck? You want to call people racist yet you're going to say "I'm in the redneck hangout"? Who's being racist?

3. Again another inadvertent consequence of illegal immigration, which is not a crime.

4. Back to answer 2, there's always bad apples with the good apples. Many illegal immigrant families just want to work and have a better life in the United States, nothing more, nothing more.
That's actually only 2 things. But just to clear it up, they take American jobs because they're willing to work for close to nothing, and an American is not. Yes, as I've said MANY MANY TIMES, we have enough of our own crime, WE DON"T NEED MEXICO'S CRIMINALS!

I've been around 20 Mexicans many times---sometimes as high as 21. In a lot of ways, they act just like "regular" people....(but sometimes, when you least expect it, they might do something 'Mexican')...so you've got to keep pretty much on your toes......

However! The Terrorist themselves applied for and received Visas after they already crashed the planes..so I guess they were legal and therefore posed no problem to your keen illegals are terrorists instinct.
Actually 5 out of the 19 terrorists were illegal aliens, and 4 of those 5 were stopped by the police in the month just prior to 9-11. They should have been picked up and questioned. Perhaps 9-11 could have been avoided.

The fact that the others were here legally just shows the need in these rough times to simply close the door altogether for a while. At least until we get a handle on the war on terror.

I have - in one house.

I guess Jesus is not all-knowing and not all-seeing. 20 is nothing - you can easily have 200-300 in one block of single family homes.

We must be neighbors Lakewooder

The neighborhood I live in has a preponderance of Mexicans - I guess it doesn't compute to some that those of us who are opposed to illegal immigration might actually have interactions with them on a regular basis.

And before I get shot down, I am not implying that all Mexicans in my neighborhood are illegal.

I guess people who aren't affected just really can't picture 20-30 million moving into a few states and the impact that has.
