Why do you always steer away from the point? I prove something, and then you give me a complete response which bares no relevance what so ever.

I do not see anything racist about having to prove your citizenship. The legal american born whites and blacks have to do the same thing correct?

If there was a law passed that only legal people can have jobs, then whites, blacks and not just hispanics have to prove it.

How can illegal advocates play the race card if all the races have to do it.

Strictly speaking; there is no 'Hispanic' race......most of the ones here would be counted as American Indian if the Hispanic label were to disappear------or, Latinos would then try to self identify as 'White' if allowed to do so.

I want to point out one thing. This man is on the FBI's most wanted list and if you look down where it says 'Race', it says that he is: White (Hispanic). I found that interesting.

It's like an Amnesty. They're not going through the proper documentation to become citizens at first.
Wow! Your command of logic has me speechless.

Exactly!

Legal vs. illegal. "Waiting in line" is irrelevant.

Using your "logic," someone who is rushed to the ER with a bullet wound is equivalent to someone who dishonestly sneaks to the front of the list with a cold.

Cubans don't have to wait in line. That's the law. Amnesty is given to people who have already broken the law. Capiche?
