That'd be the WORST thing illegal aliens and their pals would try IMHO. This ain't 1965 and Selma where Americans got pissed off at what Bull Connor was doing to AMERICAN "Black" people; this is 2013 and Mexico and more and more us us want ILLEGAL aliens GONE, by force if needed. I say "Mexico" since MOST illegal aliens are from there.

Yes, huge difference between some American citizens protesting to change our own country and a bunch of foreign citizens who never made any effort to protest or work for change in their own country.

So we need to pass amnesty or else the 11-20 million illegals will be rioting in the streets ?

Well then call in the military since that could be considered an invasion of the US seeing these people are not citizens.

You don't like the reported to be 6 million Mexicans in the USA illegally, but you're fine with the 5 million people from other countries? Seems to me, despite your protestations to the contrary ... your problem is with Mexicans, not with illegal aliens generally.

My problem is with illegals.

In this state, most illegals are Mexicans and a substantial percentage of Mexican-born residents of Texas are illegal.

People living in border states see illegal Mexicans (and central Americans, whom they mistake for Mexicans) in much higher proportions, so it's natural for some people to equate the two.

I personally do not. I don't care where an illegal comes from. They need to get the hell out of the USA and go back where they came from. I don't care if there's no legal way for them to come in. That doesn't entitle them to trespass and squat in our country and take jobs away from Americans.

I have never read where this poster or any others in here are fine with non-Mexican illegal immigrants. In fact he said that he mentioned Mexicans only just because they are here by far in the largest numbers illegally. Why are you trying to spin that fact now?
