This isn't about which country people are coming from - this is about legal/illegal.
... if a continuing hoard of white women from Sweden come to the States looking to do the most menial of jobs... I for one am delighted!!

Agreed and many who aren't. No matter where I go, I strike up a conversation with strangers and before I leave them, I give them websites to inform/arm themselves with the atrocities going on in this country. They are always surprised, then angry, then grateful for the information.

Even though McCain and Obama are just as bad-amnesty is not a "shoe in". More and more people and states are getting fired up every day. llegals are leaving.
Another victory came with the failure of the SPP. I believe after Boosh realized that it was not going to happen (btw they blame LOU DOBBS' big mouth for sounding the alarm), I believe he gave DHS the nod to start the massive raids and deportation. Nobody can convince me that the timing of the failure of the SPP and the raids is coincidental.

ALL HAIL LOU DOBBS!!!

Yes I was happy to hear about that on the SPP. Lou does an awesome job and I am thankful for all that he has done to bring much of the dirty shenanigans to light on tv each evening.

I don't think the problem is with LAW ABIDING Mexicans. The problem is with those that chose not to obey our laws. A lot of people on this board have close friends and even family who are from Mexico and them being from Mexico is never an issue. You want to make it sound like we are a bunch of haters and that is not true, you get what you want from the posts, but it has been said time and time again, the problem is with breaking the law and it should be a blanket rule as it with legal citizens, you commit the crime you do the time or in their case GET DEPORTED!

Actually, she does not consider herself Mexican. She does however, consider herself an American of Mexican ancestry. There is a difference.
