As it should be done.

Although quite a few Mestizos in particular do state 'Other' on their Census forms.

I agree with Radraja completely.

Illegal immigration is a serious crisis in the U.S. today, and it has to be stopped. Illegal aliens break in line of those "true immigrants" that migrate lawfully through the rule of law. Illegal aliens have brought crime, gangs, diseases, over crowding, anchor babies, and all manner of social ills to our country, all of course in the name of cheap illegal foreign labor that the greedy crave.
U.S. CITIZENS need the jobs that illegal aliens are taking away. It is a total lie and falsehood that U.S. Citizens wont' do the jobs that illegal aliens will do. U.S. Citizens are hard working people, and first and foremost they have the right to U.S. jobs, healthcare, etc. What is happening right now is that we U.S. Citizens are paying the bill for these illegal aliens to be in the U.S., for their healthcare, their incarceration, everything, we are paying for their drunken butts to drive drunk and hit our mom or dad or children in the streets with no regard and no insurance!
Time for this nonsense to STOP.
Report illegal aliens to ICE, here:How To Report Illegals

Once they become a racial majority, will racial tension increase between Hispanics and whites, blacks, Asians etc? I honestly fear that once they become the overwhelming racial majority in California they'll feel more loyal to Mexico and try to succede from the US. Afterwards, racial tension will be on the rise and California will become a racial war zone followed by Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and possibly the rest of the US.

Racial tensions broke out between Hispanics and blacks in a Hispanic-dominated Los Angeles high school so will it eventually happen in the US once they become the racial majority?

Does anyone think this will occur? (I'm honestly scared that this could be possible)
I smell xenophobia all over this...

This is no joke take a look at this well written article on the suject of take over The Road to Aztlan

As one of MEChA’s many charming slogans has it, "for those of our race, everything; for those outside of it, nothing."

How about this twist

Many Americans Moving to Mexico in Search of the American Dream

MERIDA, Mex. – At some point last fall, the one millionth American established residency here in Mexico. That makes Mexico the host nation for the largest American expatriate community in the world. There are now more Americans living in Mexico than there are in the U.K. or Canada.
This trend is accelerating as the U.S. recession deepens and job losses across the United States accelerate. “We’ve seen an increase of almost 40 percent in the number of American citizens making inquiries about the requirements for moving to Mexico,” said an official at the Mexican Consulate in New York. “There are definitely more Americans emigrating to Mexico than this time last year.”

Strange that you should detect xenophobia (by smell, or otherwise), in a country that has taken in 'far and away' more foreigners than any other society in the history of the world. That's an odd kind of place to label 'xenophobic', it seems to me.

Perhaps a thread about Hispanics "taking over" is a bit of an overstatement...I agree. But is it altogether surprising? Are you honestly 'shocked' by such sentiments, given today's situation?

If France suddenly found itself housing 10 million Italians....or India was the new home of 10% of the population of Pakistan; if Japan were suddenly 'chosen' as their new home by millions of Indonesians, or Mexico suddenly found itself providing space for a huge influx of Nigerians....do you expect this would all go 'smoothly'? Can you see ANY of the residents of these 'host' nations expressing alarm? Can you see a few of them grumbling, decrying the 'changes' in their society, and feeling apprehensive about their own future? And if they did this, would you then accuse them of being 'xenophobic'?

Recently, on this forum, our good friend Travelling Fella forwarded an article congratulating Brazil on legalizing (amnestizing) "Several tens of thousands of illegal residents". Wonderful...so Brazil did 'the right thing'.

But here in the US, we're not talking about 'several tens of thousands' of illegals...we're talking about MULTIPLE MILLIONS of illegals...from all over the place, among them about TEN PERCENT of the ENTIRE POPULATION of Mexico..(which is, in itself, certainly not a 'small' country, nor is it a particularly POOR country).

So there you have it....it's easy, and convenient, to assign ANY American misgivings re: illegals to simple 'xenophobia'...(to your credit, at LEAST you didn't try to blame the problem on 'racism')....but 'xenophobia', in what context? When the nation that's taken in more LEGAL immigrants than any other in history..(and probably more ILLEGALS, as well), finds itself approaching the limits of its ability to 'take people in', you accuse it of 'xenophobia'.....But if the US is 'xenophobic', what do you call MOST of the world...'Ultra-xenophobic'? If we're 'tough on poor Mexicans' here, what do you call Mexico.."NICE to poor Mexicans"? If the US is 'unwelcoming to foreigners' (i.e., xenophobic), how would you describe Egypt...or China...or Turkey...or Nigeria...."really, REALLY UNWELCOMING ?"..

I agree that the thread title is a bit 'over-the-top'...just wanted to put things in context. The US may be turning a TINY bit xenophobic...and perhaps there's a reason for that.

When they give amnesty to 30 million illegals, they have the right to bring in their hundreds of millions of family members .
