Reminds me of my neighbor lady, who founded a local chapter of D.A.M......I asked her what it stood for, and was informed it meant "Mothers Against Dyslexia". Go figure....

It doesn't much matter who anyone "likes" or "dislikes" - that's not the point. If someone doesn't like Mexicans or doesn't like Europeans, so what? That's an individual's right to have their own opinions in this country.

Now, we also might say that we do not like the latinization of America - because we like the culture the way it is. It doesn't mean I don't like the PEOPLE, but I do not prefer to change my culture to a latin one. Got any questions/comments about that?

I'm sure race is part of the issue for some people.

You replace all these poor brown Mexicans with a bunch of white women from Sweden, under the same circumstances, and I guarantee some people's attitudes on this would change.

Don't try to paint those of us opposed to illegal immigration with YOUR brush. If you think "white women from Sweden" are somehow more worthy than "those poor brown Mexicans" then that speaks to your mindset, not ours.

This isn't about which country people are coming from - this is about legal/illegal.

It boils down to that one sentence right there. Because pro-illegal groups cannot form a logical argument against that sentence, they bring out their playbook of hate, xenophobe, racist, mean-spirited, etc. They throw out any "label" that will turn the conversation/debate away from true fact and instead to shock value and character assasination.

Well, as I've said before, as soon as the ones here now are granted amnesty, I'm sure nobody will hate them then. I'm sure everyone's attitudes will completely be different, because it really is that whole illegal thing that's bugging everybody.

Attitudes will change overnight when they're not breaking the law being here, I'm sure.
