I do believe we should focus on the problem of illegal immigration and try not to single out a single nationality, even though that nationality is in the majority.

It would probably enable a more civilized discussion. Illegal is illegal, it does not matter to me from which country they came. It helps to know the source, but I think we can discuss the issues without constantly criticizing one source.

Can we agree to discuss things more rationally or do I need to start deleting posts. I'm not telling anyone to be so politically correct that they can't mention nationalities and such, just try and be a little more civil in your arguments.

If we can keep this debate like this, I suggest changing the name title. Why Mexican illegal? Why not illegal?

What makes you think I'm pro-illegal? simply because I disagree with a post? And its not 'to' its 'too'. Its not robing, its robbing. Now that that's settled, your basically telling me because Mexicans are the majority of illegal immigrants which make up an unofficial percentage of 56%, that all Mexicans who are illegal are violent criminals?

All illegals, Mexican or other, are not violent criminals. Likewise, all illegals, Mexican and others, are not "poor starving hard working law abiding family people." Since the previous is what illegals themselves and their supporters claim, threads such as this serve to rebut those claims.

I would have to say some are very poor and some are living essentially "pay check to pay check" or scraping by. Compared to the standards of some of the villages in Africa, I'd say they're well off.

Maybe things have changed sense the last time you were in Africa.
