I think his point is that Mexico ******* about how we treat THEIR illegals while THEY treat the Guatemalans and other Central americans like crap! If the US ever treated Mexican illegals in this manner the Mexican government and all their illegal alien support groups would start howling like a pack of dogs with a firetruck passing by.

Can we spell H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-I-C-A-L ???

So? It doesn't mean they aren't being mistreated.

Where are all our Mexican nationalist posters now? Why do they not condemn their own government for not allowing the entire world to move into Mexico as it pleases?

It always amazes me that they insist the USA can have no immigration laws, no borders of any kind but meanwhile theiir own country of Mexico can have borders and laws.

My friend attached the article to it, so I presumed it had something to do with it. Nonetheless the picture speaks volumes about the hypocrisy with their treatment of illegals.

And regarding me speaking Spanish...why should i have to? The official language is English. (BTW, I am learning it )

Now where are all those Mexicans we often see out protesting? Now's the time to grab their Mexican flags and posters and protest their own government's treatment of illegals and it's time they insist that Mexico ends all immigration laws and stops having a border.

If the Mexican nationalists weren't hypocrits, they'd insist that Mexico have absolutely no immigration laws of any kind. Immigration to Mexico should be the same free-for-all they insist it must be for the USA.

They spin it to suit their own beliefs.

I wonder if anyone can provide any evidence indicating an event in which a Minuteman member killed and/or injured an illegal alien crossing the border illegally...

Not once...believe me, if it happened, it would be front-page news for weeks. So scrupulously 'hands-off' are The Minutemen...so determined to "look" but don't "accost"....that I recall about 2 years ago that ONE Minuteman from California, on 'duty' near Nogales, AZ, was asked to go home....he had violated 'Minuteman' rules by speaking to an illegal and giving him a bottle of water. As far as I know, that's the limit of their actual interaction with border-crossers, out in the field. Their 'weapons' are binoculars, cell-phones, and note pads.

You can accuse The Minutemen of being "pests"....call them "nosey", if you will...even perhaps an "embarrassment" to 'the powers that be'. Just don't call them 'violent', and don't call them 'vigilantes'....because they're neither.

I remember that. I read that at the time they had rules that stated no Minuteman or woman was to either speak to an illegal or touch them. This was strictly to protect themselves from lawsuits alleging 'assault' or 'hate speech'. They kept water and food at their campsites so that if an illegal happened by and was hungry or thirsty, they could give it to him, but they could only place the food and water on a table and motion to the illegal that he could have it.
