I've found that those who live in affluent neighborhoods are clueless when it comes to the damage illegal aliens do to neighborhoods.

Yet, if the house next door to them became a flophouse filled with illegal aliens, they would be screaming from the rafters about their schools and neighborhood plus their property values. So much for their bumper stickers that say "co-exist".
Also, how would someone who doesn't even live in this country (or so they claim) know what goes on in ours and just what is their infatuation with this subject that has nothing to do with their country? As I said, I even provided links to the damage that illegal immigration has brought on our country and yet they persist in being in denial and make it look like we are damned fools who don't know what we are talking about.

Agreed and HOW!

Many illegal alien fans WOULD lose it if their lawbreaking "friends" moved in next door. NIMBY would def stand up and want to be counted.

Coming to this particular section of the forum after my curiosity was aroused by some of the topic titles i thought i'd drop in and find out what its all about as its not something that is fully understood or talked about up in Canada.
First up my Canadian citizenship is under scrutiny along with the attitude that this issue is none of my business, I persist in debate but get little more than personal opinion on the hoardes of aliens crossing the border every day, anywhere from 10 to 50 million illegals taking over towns taking American jobs whole companies staffed by illegals and evidently theres nothing any one can do about it because the government loves illegal immigrants. Right so far?
Then theres the illegals themselves.. How some one can tell an illegal is an illegal was never fully explained i get the impression that basically any one who looks like a Latino is automatically viewed as an illegal parasite a lazy bum out to destroy America and to be immediately be hated.
Questioning any part of this issue immediately puts you in a group that is viewed as evidently supporting illegal immigration and thereby you are hated as well.
OK i think i got the picture.. Thanks.

Ummm...The vast majority of illegal aliens are Latino. That said, I'm half Latina so I don't go around assuming that anyone who looks Latino just has to be an illegal alien.

In the past ICE has deported illegals back to 189 different countries. 189 different countries covers every race, religion and ethnicity.

If you knew anything about this illegal alien invasion, you would know the following: 1) As mentioned already, the vast majority are from Mexico, Central and South America. 2) Of that group, the vast majority is functionally illiterate. With that in mind, I think that even you can put 2 and 2 together---When a community gets a huge influx of such people who then create flophouses, refuse to learn English, have children that they can't support, then send said children to school not knowing a word of English plus the Spanish they do know is atrocious---let's just say this --- odds are excellent that we're talking about illegal aliens.

What more info do you need? I'm beginning to think that you are only coming into these threads to stir up things.

Once again, this forum makes me sad. I realize some of you prefer ranting to discussing and treat opinions as facts, but that's not how it works, or at least that's not how it's supposed to work. I'm also saddened by the level of aggression some of you show towards those they disagree with, instantly putting labels on them and getting personal.
Opinions, as that's all most of you have, are like you know what - we all have one and they all stink, in general.
Closed.
Yac.
