All this thread concludes to me is that the terrorists on 9/11 have successfully changed America, whether for good or bad, they were successful and are laughing at us.

that is why we should be working to balance the economies of our geographic neighbors first, since they will be providing us with the bulk of immigrants. once we have balanced economies throughout north america, we work on south america. by then, we will have a very balanced world economy, minus a few asian and most african countries, and will subsequently see less immigration.

Americans are too scared to work diligently and diplomatically. Immediate results are needed and thus get us into trouble each time. Don't give the people some long plan when we can DEPORT immediately.

What really happened on 9/11???

who was behind it? I don't know but something tells me Bush & co had something to do with that, why was that Osama Bin Laden reappeared on the last elections? he had vanished until that day.

Have you noticed in the videos and pictures that there weren't any rests of the planes who "crashed" why is that? they should have at least left some evidence imho

I might be dead wrong, but what if it were true? what has Iraq and it's oil to do with Bin Laden?

They were taking over the world, my friend, if they could, and they may have if the U.S. didn't join England in the fight.
which directly threatened our FREEDOM, not the cost of our citizenship.

Are you kidding? Please tell me you're kidding. Did you not see the photographs of airplane wreckage at ground zero? Some of it fell into the street. How do you think they got that footage of planes crashing into buildings? What about the thousands of people who witnessed the airplanes crashing into the buildings?

Gotta disagree on this one travelingfella. Bush may not be the brightest bulb in the bunch, but he didn't concoct 9/11 or have anything to do with it. Conspiracy theories abound, sadly.

Ok, you are right, maybe I was being too paranoid, that's why I wanted to hear the answers of real Americans

man I really pray to God everyday that we don't have another 9/11 never again, it was a shock that resonated in the entire world imho, at least in Mexico we thought the world was falling apart for many days, tons of people sent letters to the embassy with their condolences, some specialized rescue teams went to ground zero to help too

I guess that the only positive thing of terrible things happening is that then you realize how much do you really care for your neighboor, I'm sure that if something similar happened in Mexico, America would be the first country to stand up and help, and we need to help each other so this never repeats.

Are you a comedian?? First of all, a majority of immigrants came to this country between the years of 1850 and 1920. So while you may think of yourself as a "native American" or whatever, you are not and 98% of Americans certainly are not.

http://teacher.scholastic.com/activi...ants_chart.pdf

During that entire period Europeans made up anywhere from 70 to 90% of immigrants. Non-European Hispanic immigrants did not become a majority until the 1970s. And the number of German immigrants in the late 1800s was much higher on a yearly basis than the current Hispanic immigration, and back then the United States was smaller, had fewer states, and a fraction of the population & money.

Furthermore, it is so comical how you define illegal vs legal. So one day the borders are open and everybody who comes over is fine and dandy. The next day a few politicians decide to close the borders and from that day forward everybody is by your book an evil criminal.

You have some interesting logic, no doubt supported by the rest of these wackos on the immigration forum. I promised myself before clicking in here that I wouldn't post anything but after reading your comment I just had to laugh and post a reply.

But don't let me interupt your hate party. Please, go back to hating and demonizing Hispanics/Immigrants. Or use my post as a trampoline for further hate...I don't care. I'm out of here anyway....I have better things to do with my time. Have fun
