Even if she isn't illegal, huh?

We've been there too (((hugs))) my husband used to do construction, which as been totally taken over by illegals. Yeah it sucks to have to be competing with people who have absolutely NO right to be here.

If she's YOUR spanish speaking relative, I need only imagine what she would be like. No thanks. I don't need to hear about how the gringo stole her land in spanish.

I just cry about it less.

Man, I'd hate to have a Spanish speaking relative of mine have her baby at your hospital, lol.

Wow! My blue eyed devil gringo Grandpa and Great Grandpa who fought to make it so you can talk like that would be very happy to hear how greatful you are. Nice. Isn't that racist??? But I can't say that most mexicans are illegal. WTF????

50 million of 300 million is 1/6, not 1/8, but I think her statement of...

Trust me, I dont even talk about that stuff. I dont talk about this debate with people, I just get amused by the stuff that gets said on here.

I'm surprised you chose to be a nurse. Probably wouldve been more suited as a C.O.

I don't people really care that much. Hispanics, whites, Blacks, whatever. Most people are just trying to get by.
I never heard any of my friend go off on how they want to take over America or anything. Just trying to get by and make a buck.
People are more concerned with gas prices, food prices, stuff like that.
Immigration, and unfortunately the Iraq war, aren't exactly priorities for the average person.

Ah so Hispanics aren't paying enough taxes. LOL. So I guess your statement makes this false:

Hispanic middle class growth | Growth Strategies | Find Articles at BNET

But luckily, I paid only $70,000 in taxes when I sold my house. But yeah, besides that, and income tax, I'm not pulling my load.
