Why are so many people on these forums concern with seeing Mexicans withs strollers. Where do some of you live, Montana? It like people think all Mexicans are illegal, with is far form the truth. Thats one of the things that make America unique, hearing different languages in public.

"Different Languages" equals the beginning of a DIVIDED NATION.

While you are at it: add in the American Blacks along with China, Japan and quite a few other nations with below replacement birthrates to your list of 'Euro White' people

Wrong!

The de facto language of the USA is English.

The prejudice is growing against especially the use of Spanish in most public surroundings.

English is the de facto, not the official language in the USA. Prejudice is not going to make people stop speaking there native language. There are other languages being spoken in public beside spanish.

If they were legal, then why aren't they becoming American? That's the problem, they wish to remain Mexican citizens but use the USA for it's freebies. They stay patriotic to Mexico with all their Mexican-flag-waving but they prefer living in the USA for the food stamps and WIC but not because they even want to actually be American.

I enjoy different languages and speak 3 which is not many but hope to learn more . At least basics .

Spanish is the growing language and important to learn not fear it as some seem to do.

For the majority of us here, it is not about race or xenophobia.

The bottom line: it's about securing our borders, enforcing our laws, fining and jailing illegal alien employers, cutting off freebies which contributed greatly to the bankrupting of our treasury, and our government not passing amnesty.

The continuation of ignoring our laws and providing "a pathway to citizenship, aka: amnesty" will only serve to invite millions more to participate in the OBL sanctioned free for all. It will also facilitate Americans being forced to live in a 3rd world cesspool while paying billions in taxes dollars to provide a comfortable life for those who simply keep coming with no end in sight.

For those who feel we should just suck it up and learn to enjoy 3rd world poverty and living conditions, it's not going to happen.
You can't deny that there are people on this board and IRL who refuse to look at the issues and power players and turn this into a 'damn messican' conversation. The real culprits here is Corporate America, who exploits cheap labor, holds down labor prices and cheats taxes in hiring illegal workers. Corporate America favors no political party...they pay off equally.

Sadly, we do. Look at the aging of our population. The baby boomers are already moving en masse into social security land. The working population supporting social security is smaller and getting smaller. Who's going to make up the difference?
