No kidding. Wave their Mexican flags in our faces and demand "equal rights."

I think we ought to give them "rights" based on the country they came from. Let's see how many of them flock here when they receive the same level of education, healthcare, etc. that Mexico would provide for them.

Really? Your opinion matters to the Chinese government? Mine sure doesn't.

The point I made was Americans weren't crying about illegals until they marched. Nobody cared and probably still wouldn't care if they would have continued to fly under and be good lap dogs.
That is not true. There have been Americans fighting this illegal invasion for many years-myself and others included. I will however agree with you that a large percentage did not "wake up" until the marches.

Anyway even if every American only "woke up" today about the illegal invasion that does not diminish American's rights to be angry and fight back at this invasion. An illegal is still an illegal.

It is much easier to leave a problem behind right? Just ask all the Americans who have left Los Angeles.

I mean it isn't getting fixed overnight there in Mexico and Americans are hiring..so makes sense to leave for them.

Wouldn't it benefit them more to go speak up to the correct audience????
Yes, but is that audience listening in Mexico? No.

The peasants should have just taken it like good slaves and never spoke up, right?

See - this is the illogic of this argument! Illegals came here WILLINGLY. They allowed themselves to be used as little more than indentured slaves. But the difference is - they were not captured and put on a boat and brought over here and sold - THEY SOLD THEMSELVES INTO SLAVERY.

All they had to do is A. stay in their own country . . . B. turn around and walk back across the border. THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS HERE.

This is not hard!!!
