ITA. It is not fair to those who are legal or are natural born citizens. You would think the LaRaza-esque types would recognize this and stop lumping them all together. Of course if they did that, it would be more than obvious that they are shielding illegal aliens; the tax dollars would shrink substantially and their stance diminished substantially.

People are obviously getting very annoyed with this nuisance. Wonder how long it will be before it gets terribly ugly.
I have noticed the same. I fear if our economy continues to slide, this will escalate from annoyance to violence.

Agreed. Americans for the most part are generous by nature . . .those marches and the cultural clashes taking place in towns and cities all over this country are slowly awakening/breeding angry American mobs.

The illegals have asked for the problem and they are the ones who woke the giant.

Very much so.

Precedent has been set many times in history------usually despite the cries of 'racism' (on all sides); the real culprit tends to be the economy as you stated.

Along those lines: when the birthrate hovers around 2 children per woman------ a lot of the warmongering/mob mentality dissipates due to the dearth of 'cannon fodder'.

Is the death of the young man on the other thread a "fantasy?"

For the sake of the violent illegals, yes.

Otherwise; it would be open season.

Very true, and quite disturbing.

Fortunately, he doesn’t have his driver’s license, so I don’t have to worry about him being alone. I don’t even allow him to ride his bike unless he rides with other boys. If he’s with me and someone makes the mistake of entertaining the thought of harming him; I dare say, they will receive a rude awakening.

Agreed. Can you imagine breaking and entering into a country and thumbing your nose at every single one of it's laws?

If they had any sense at all they would connect the dots and realize that they are the problem and no matter where they run, they can't hide from themselves. Change comes from within.
