Okay guys, here's a real whopper for ya! Check this out:

Americans are to blame for some illegal immigrants becoming serial crooks because “they’re picking up those bad habits of cheating, of drinking and drugs,” according to an official of a prominent Latino advocacy organization.

Jesse Diaz of the League of United Latin American Citizens made the claim on Monday during an interview on Dallas talk radio station KRLD, and then repeated them on Tuesday to WFAA-TV.

Diaz was discussing a federal study of 100 illegal immigrants with arrest records. The study found they had each been arrested and released six times on average.

When questioned about how living in America is responsible for them becoming serial lawbreakers, Diaz stood by his remarks, arguing that conservative Catholic values learned in Mexico start to break down once immigrants are in the U.S. Diaz pointed to an increase in teen pregnancies and broken homes in the immigrant community and also blasted the wearing of baggy pants.

Illegals are not responsible for crime, the Illegals who commit crime are responsible.

The article is saying that America is why the illegals commit crimes, I didnt say it they did. They say something about their catholic upbringing wastes away here. Oh and baggy pants. And if they dont have a problem breaking our laws to get here, why should they not commit more when they finally do get here?

No one can blame America for people individually deciding to break the law by crossing our nations borders. The only people to blame is the people who commit it.
