JDubsmom is not a troll- she is an acitve member of this forum and has a right to post these articles as she wishes. What about the pro-illegal articles blacknight posts? Should those be banned?
Well stated. We both know they can't handle the truth. Also, they have yet to understand the old adage, some things are better left unsaid.

The reason he is deportable is because he's an IMMIGRANT and this is the IMMIGRATION THREAD.

Yep. You can take sexual predators out of their country but . . . you can't take the culturally embedded predatory instincts out of the predator.

Exactly, which means he was an IMMIGRANT. This is the IMMIGRATION THREAD.

One more time: Comprehension is the key to reading.

Where is your evidence for such a sweeping statement about a whole group of people? Links, studies, etc. You know, or maybe you don't, proof?

Except the arguement I was addressing - and not to you, btw - was some thought that he was an illegal.

Sorry you got the flak JDubsmom for my mistake. I am the one who mistakenly referred to him as an "illegal alien". I am sorry for referring to him as an illegal alien.

The point is mate, what if she said the same - or made other sweeping generalisations - about blacks, or Jews, or Italians - would she not be called on it?

She would be, but apparently it's okay when such things are said about mexicans.

What about when the such things are said about Mexicans, by Mexicans themselves?

Police: Gwinnett mom encouraged man to move in with her teen daughter | ajc.com (http://www.ajc.com/gwinnett/content/metro/gwinnett/stories/2008/03/28/underage_0329.html - broken link)

And I'll quote:

"The woman's lawyer, Wesley Person, said police are overreaching in a case that would not be a big deal in Mexico.
With the woman's relatives nodding their agreement, Person said the woman's decision to allow Gomez-Gonzales to move in to her house was a culturally acceptable alternative to the girl moving in with an older man in another house."
D'oh!!!
