If you oppose illegal immigration then you are a white supremacists, even if you support immigration from India/China or immigration based on skill.

That is no secret.

I hardly know of anyone regardless of their race that objects to legal immigration in sensible numbers along with keeping diversity in the mix. It is the ethnocentric pro-illegals who mainly want only Mexicans and other Latinos to come here in unlimited numbers. Isn't that racism in itself? Diversity isn't giving Hispanics a larger quota but only a part of those quotas along with equal numbers of other ethnic groups should be able to migrate here also.

Why would he continually bring up white supremists anyway? They do not represent the majority of white Americans who object to illegal immigration and it isn't only whites that object to illegal immigration anyway. White-race hating agenda, much?

Even if its true, which it is not. Assuming that every anti immigration person is a White supremacist is not anti White.

Calling someone a White supremacist is not anti White.

Interesting that you equate White supremacist with White race.

Let's cut the political correctness.

You dislike Americans of Hispanic descent.

I am a liberal and I do not want any more immigration of any kind until we reach full employment of the workers already here.

So you never want immigration, because the US has never and will never reach full employment.

Also, that means that there are about 5.5 million illegal aliens from other countries living in this country.

Mexicans take the brunt because it is easier for them to be targeted by people who want to get rid of all the illegal aliens in our country. If we pushed out the 6.7 million from Mexico, I am sure people would then continue to ignore the 5.5 million from other countries like they do now.
Add another 15-20% from other hispanic countries. That equals majority.

I personally don't believe it has anything to do with maintaining any form of "white supremacy" That's just a leftists "get out of jail free" card from putting fourth a legitimate argument.

It's pretty simple...people are against rewarding bad behavior. Many blacks, and hispanics, both liberal and conservatives who are citizens are against amnesty.

History shows, that it wouldn't matter if these people were stark white Polish, Albanians and other Eastern Europeans. As a matter of fact, even when this country was more openly bigoted than it is today--Eastern European immigration was heavily thwarted in the 1920s due to the "Red Scare"...and those people were primarily white.
