Is it really only about illegal immigrants or does it matter, to you, were immigrants comes from? Do you rather see immigrants from Northern Europe, South America,The Middle East. Asia or from Africa? Just to name a few.
Let say they all came here legally.
I am just curious what your honest answer is.

Honestly, when you are an immigrant and you do things the right way, NOBODY should be concern about it. Even if you come from Mars, welcome to earth.... Lets be really honest and leave behind your feelings "anti" whatever group you dislike, be honest, dont go around with lies. I am hispanic, an American by choice and I never have had problems with people because of their skin color or ancestor's background.

People who are vocal, making demands for "rights" they're not entitled to tend to get all the attention. That's probably why many of us associate illegal aliens with Mexicans and other hispanics.

But yes, there are plenty of other illegal immigrants from other countries; we just don't hear from them about how we're not accommodating them enough and we have to give them more more more.

I believe the system needs to be fixed; however, it's wrong that all these people are here and they're a drain on the economy, as well as contributing to crime... of which this country already has its share.

As CATAGOMO stated.

Legal immigrants are welcome here......Black, White, Asian or any combination thereof------Hispanic or Anglo.

Immigrants of all nationalities, colors, and creeds bring great life, texture and food to our country. For me, it is all about legal vs illegal and the inherent crime that comes with the illegality.
