If you and Movin'on like illegal mexicans so much, perhaps you all should move south of the border and take them all with you.

Well I would, but I'm already on their land. I do like human beings!

Just curious how many Latinos have you dealt with? I live in California, I've dealt with probably over 300 Latinos in my life and no more than three have disrespected me or my country. More people on this website need to more concerned about this country's problem with racism, generalizations, and stereotypes.

Illegal aliens are involved in a disproportional amount of crime and gang activity.

We're shooting ourselves in the foot, our government is supposed to work for the citizens of our country, not Mexico's.

Perhaps you missed the huge rallies last May where millions of illegals waved the flag of Mexico, and other Latin American countries, while screaming that this was "their" land and taking down the American flag and replacing it with Mexican one?

And you my friend are involved in a disproportional amount of stereotype.

Oh my goodness you saw what I saw!

30 million Mexicans, 3 Incidences!

No wonder this country has a problem with stereotypes, generalizations, and racism!

Oh no, I missed nothing. Unlike YOU, I live in a border state, and I still think you need to reconsider your screen name.

I like their burritos, I speak Spanish, and I even worked for a Mexican grower. Back in 1987, this company paid me far better than any American company would have, and they even gave me $1500 at my going away party.

So, somehow I think I understand their culture better than you do and I know it better than you do, as well.

Anyone that thinks Mexico has some kind of right to the Southwest is incredibly ignorant. Almost as ignorant as the fools that claim "the border crossed us."

Some facts, Mexico was independent for some 20 years before the United States bought the land from Mexico after the US-Mexico war. There was only around 1% of Mexico 1848 population, the majority of whom were White-Spanish settlers, not what we think of today when we think of "Mexicans."

So, the majority flooding into this country are Brown, and Mestizo. The indigenous tribes of Mexico _DID_NOT live anywhere close to this territory, the Aztec empire was in Southern Mexico.

So anyone who claims this is "Mexican land" is a total idiot. It's been American much longer than it's been part of Mexico. Furthermore, because of the culture of corruption in Mexico, had we not bought the Southwest from Mexico we would still most likely have millions fleeing across the border into the United States.

I can't stand such historical ignorance. Worst of the all, many of the people flooding into this country actually believe it.

I think Tapatio hot sauce was a gift from the Mexicans... I think, once Tapatio gets exported all over the country, in the BIG bottles, some people will learn to appreciate the Mexican culture more.

And I am REALLY having a problem with your screen name, but that is my own personal issue.

You need to get a heart.

These people are human beings. We took their land, in the same way that we put (I think it was) chicken pox on blankets of Native Americans.

Now, I'm gettin' angry, but I am prepared to deliver as far as sources go.
