<<So called "illegals" pay taxes yet do not get Social security .>>

Well, that's too bad. That's frequently the outcome of illegal activities. The criminal doesn't get to enjoy his/her ill gotten gains.

And what makes you think that that's what they want, Spanish people have the lowest incidence of participation on welfare programs in the usa, if spanish people were the majority, we would not have a welfare or homelessness problem in this country......

Spanish people, or Spanish-speaking people? In any case, would you care to share proof? Remember, we are discussing illegal aliens.

Nah. Texas stole itself back from Mexico thanks to the delay of Santa Ana's forces at the Alamo. Texas, Our Texas. All hail the mighty state.

I beg your pardon, but quite often the lines are blurred in this forum and is quite difficult to tell whether you talkin' bout migrant workers or spanish people in general.....
