They said they were guarding the borders and building a fence, it kind of went flop, but a lot of people if the are for or against Illegal Aliens do NOT like vigilanties, with the exception of the ones that agree with them.

Suffice to say: as the recession deepens; the anti illegal immigrant laws will become stricter------and, will be enforced.

Otherwise: the so-called 'Bleeding Hearts' and their Neo-Con compadres will likely face the wrath of the American people.

Remember: we as a nation are slow to anger............when we 'lose it'----------look out!

I have no sympathy for Mexico's problems.

Apparently, you are unaware of the meaning of the word vigilante.

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but it doesn't include a bunch of middle-aged folks in lawn chairs with binoculars and water bottles. Perhaps you meant that they were vigilant--meaning alert watchfulness?

They are not police officers or Border Patrol; they cannot "guard" anything. They simply watch and report--hardly the actions of vigilantes. Of course, only those whose sympathies lie with the illegal border jumpers tend to label them thusly.

But then again, we already know where your sympathies lie, don't we sassy?

No I don't think you quite get it. I never said that illegal aliens were not a problem, I have a problem with racist mentality, let me put that in terms you might understand. I have a real dislike for "bullies".

Lots of us have probl;em with the people who happen to be more for the illegal criminal than they are for American citizens of this country. I have a real dislike for the pro-illegal bullies. Do you understand that?

Yep and your problem is your problem, but I would rather be a patriot who loves my country as opposed to someone who is not and loves illegal criminals and hates this country.

As EarthMother1951 stated.

I will freely admit it: I used to be much more sympathetic to the illegal immigrants-------till they flew the Mexican flag during their protests 2 years ago.

Something inside me snapped and turned me against those ingrate losers.
