If you want, I could ask my wife what to do in this situation....she's an Indian. She's lived here for thousands of years.....(but you'd never know it to look at her)...

And this is so conveniently forgotten among many extremist Mexican-Americans, but millions of Mexicans (and most of the Mexicans in power in that country) are white. It's not like the United States is the big, bad "white" wolf and Mexico is a Pocohontas in distress. And let me comment on this statement you made:

"Just because you migrated here first doesn't give you authority to stop others from coming."

Actually, yes, migrating here first gave the ancestors of modern-day Americans the authority to create laws that would be binding on future generations, including on us. Mexico has laws governing immigration too, you know, and they are enforced much more rigidly than those in operation in the United States.
For the love of God would you folks please stop with the whole "Indians were committing atrocities before we got here" crap. Indians were doing the same thing the white people were doing before they got here. Fighting amongst themselves because that's what we humans seem to like to do. You all seem to think that is some excuse for what the white man did when he came to this land. Sure, Indians fought each other. Every society that has ever existed has fought amongst themselves. But the way Indians are represented on this forum you would think all they ever did before we came was rape and murder each other between peace pipes.

You are spewing a load of crap. The Indians were and are a proud people with rich cultures and proud lineage. Yet those of white descent continually try to depict them as primitive savages which could not be farther from the truth. Stop trying to point your fingers at the Indians as if they were monsters when you all have a more than fair share of bloodshed in your own histories. Some of the most atrocious acts of violence and hate have been perpetrated by white men. Its simple history folks. All we really have on the Indians is a few hundred years of research by biased aristocratic white settlers. On the other hand we have thousands of years of history on the white, brown, and yellow races which give us detailed accounts of their barbarism. Everyone fights and everyone kills. Since Cain and Abel the cycle has continued. So stop pointing fingers, because they are all bloody. And never forget that the Indians were still a very natural people when we came here, living with nature and not destroying it. So who are the real savages?

illegal immigrant is like the guy who fixing my roof last year. He now comes around to tell me "get out this is my house not you'res I put the roof on this house"

I think we should all listen to the statue of liberty. He said if your hungry you can come.
I am surprised that you let archury fix your roof.
