I know plenty of blacks who hate illegals. Here in the Washington, D.C. area a lot of historically black areas have been infested with illegals bringing crime and drugs. Most of the crime in this area is now committed by illegals, and the most violent gangs are Salvadoran. Maryland's liberal Democratic governor wants to give in-state tuition to illegals in college. This takes place spots away from inner-city and impoverished African Americans and breeds resentment. Blacks, like all other natives, have to compete with the illegals for jobs and suffer from the illegals driving down wages.

I don't see any black people who are living 20 to a house like I see the illegals do. That's the lifestyle you will live it you work a job dominated by illegals. Maybe if you used to live in a tin shack in Mexico City living 20 to a house sharing 1 bathroom is paradise but....

Members of violent gangs in L.A. are quite aware that even if they are arrested, their immigration status will never be questioned. Even if they end up in the L.A. county jail system, they will simply be released back into an unsuspecting community once they are set free.

Look at L.A.'s ten most wanted page here:

Top Ten Most Wanted - official website of THE LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT

How many African American gang members do you see on the top ten page? While it is impossible to know gang status unless stated--not one of these people are Black (or Caucasian for that matter). Four have stated gang affiliations, three Hispanic and one Armenian.

Such is the situation in Los Angeles county.
Shut 'em down!!!!!!!!

So I'd have to say no, there are NO black people who dislike illegals. You can look this up in any World Almanac.....
Actually you cannot speak for another or an entire race. You are going to have some of all races who are for or against illegals. As far as the World Almanc, the same holds true. That's basically the same as saying "all folks of a certain race are bad" when in fact, every race has good and bad. I think any true American right now is very concerned at this illegal invasion that needs to be stopped immediately before our Country goes totally down the tube.

They are bankrupting hospitals, schools and towns. Most of the towns are now filled with violent crime. YES they are taking jobs away from blacks AND whites and "legal" immigrants that are in the U.S. The only ones they aren't taking jobs from are the ones sitting on their butt, too lazy to work and collecting welfare.

You can add another 'black' to the list opposing illegal aliens. BTW, there are PLENTY more. However, as mentioned -- this is NOT a racial issue. I don't care what the country of origin is, or race/ethnicity of the illegal. The only reason Mexicans receive the lion's share of animosity is due to their overwhelming numbers and their 'in your face' arrogance and sense of entitlement.

Mac is well known on this board for his sarky sense of humor. He was being facetious--you know, sarcastic.

Well you can add me to the list of blacks that dislikes illegals. We may not be as vocal about it, but most blacks I know dislike illegals.

Actually you have to be an American citizen to collect welfare, because of the fact that you have to have a valid I.D. and social security card (number). So that argument can just go out the window.

I have been reading this thread and I think we need to maintain low tones
I hear and understand that some say this is not a racial issue but...the OP was asking from a race perspective. I am mixed and I have a so-so opinion on the subject. Not ALL of illegals are bad, or take jobs or commiting crime, they just want something better than what is waiting for them back home. Wasn't that the whole point of founding the U.S. But, I can also see the argument of Hispanic gangs (mostly illegal) targeting blacks and black gangs. If the gangs want to wipe each other out then I am all for it (that sounds horrible but so be it) but I am not ok with innocents being attacked. This is a federal issue that cannot somehow be solved.
