For the record: I am left of center with the notable exceptions of being extemely anti illegal immigrant and I favor gun ownership by US citizens if they so desire.

I disagree but you are entitled to your opinion. If we don't hate illegals, then we are Anti-American, that does not even jive.

Oh yes it does. Wanting the cultural and economic destruction of our country all for greedy and rather racist purposes is very anti-American, down to the core.

Join the club --- I have been labeled a bigot on this forum without any substantiation to it because I oppose illegal immigration.

What cultural changes do they want to do to your country? I do not see what destruction they want to do either. There will always be a segment that will do exactly what you say, and there is also a segment of our country that are greedy and destructive that are citizens of this place we call home.

Look at the qoutes by Navarro, Obledo, Richardson et al in the thread "gang members seek asylum' and you will have your answer as to what cultural changes they would like to do our country.

I like it.

The marches of 2006 forced the American public to view the pro illegal immigration supporters' in their true light; hateful views, racist attitudes, and overall disdain for this country.

Things like this will only hurt their cause further, and rightfully so.

Finally there is both clarity and backbone from a mod. You summed up the whole issue in plain English so I don't have to.

But what percentage of people labeled "pro-illegal" on this forum actually want "cultural and economic destruction" of this country? Surely not a majority; I have my doubts that anyone wants that at all. And for "racist purposes" ? How is that, exactly? The illegal immigration issue is not about race. It's about the legality of one's immigration status and persons of every race, nationality, and color can be illegal.

Do you know what I think is "very anti-American, down to the core" ? The idea that dissenters from the opinion of yourself and the majority of people in this forum are somehow anti-American and worse citizens than you.
