How is the US treating the so-called "brown people"? (Keep in mind that there is no such race as "brown people") Also, keep in mind that today illegals are treated better than Puerto Ricans were treated when they moved to the Mainland. Or even treated better than Mexican-Americans whose families had been in this country for several generations.

What "criticism of by the right wing" are you talking about specifically?

"Right wing alarmist rags"? Oh, I see...you think that the lamestream media is telling us the whole truth about this crisis.

I suggest that you read through some of the links posted in other threads in this forum and read them with an open mind.

Those of us who have seen the problems caused by illegal immigration up close and personal understand the devastation caused by it. I wish that I lived an insulated existence and was unaware of the problems caused by illegals.

Uh; if your "brown" people are so hated in the US, why would they come here? Unless it's because they're hated even MORE in LatAm for maybe not being "white"? If that's the real deal, those illegal aliens need to stand up to their "masters" back home.

I would say that the "brown people" overall have been treated pretty well in this country including those here illegally. If the brown people being referred to are Mexicans and other Latinos they hold the highest quotas for legal immigration into our country. They are pandered to in Spanish everywhere. Our politicians are falling all over themselves to gain their votes. Those here illegally aren't deported unless they have a criminal "conviction" on their record and now they are flooding our borders and being taken in. Yeah, they're really being discriminated against.

I posted it to show hardship around the globe, and at times in our history. The US can't take everybody, nor can certain countries in Europe. I am not sorry to say, folks have to start taking a stand where they live. America did not get its freedoms easily or without much work and bloodshed. Others have to do that in their "OWN COUNTRIES". That is what the song "make a change" is all about.

I am aware pro illegal protesters think anti illegal folks are racist. But they would think anyone that disagrees with them is racist, so does it really matter. Hell, you are a racist if you want to get rid of the Federal Department of Education

Speaking of education, is it "protester" or "protestor"
Either way, we agree illegals got to go....

A typo has nothing to do with a so-called lack of an education otherwise we are in agreement about the illegal immigration problem.
