Add some lower class Anglo Whites to that list as well.

The difference is being they speak English; fewer red flags arise.

Are you telling me most Hispanics don't speak English?

If I were bombarded with millions of illegals speaking ANY foreign language, I would be equally annoyed, in this country. As I've previously mentioned, if millions of Haitians were speaking French and making similar demands as the Hispanic illegals, I would feel the same. Yes, illegal is illegal, irrespective of race/ethnicity/language.

Wow-coming on here and broadly labeling people who want immigration laws enforced and law breakers sent home as racists and prejudiced. You are not going to name names-how very brave of you. And you have the nerve to accuse others of " cowardly hiding behind a keyboard"?

You have no LOGICAL argument to make so bring out the "racist" and "hater". That is quite original I must say.


For the millionth time-all illegal aliens-whereever they are from need to go home.

Most "legal" Hispanics do not have a sense of entitlement. They are generally hard-working and believe in 'earning' what they have. However, illegal alien Hispanics are cut from a different pattern. They overwhelmingly have an ingrate arrogant sense of entitlement, and appreciate nothing they have received from the generous U.S. taxpayers.

The black people you reference do not have a sense of entitlement due to past slavery. They have a sense of entitlement due to their own lack of ambition. There are faineant people in every race/ethnicity.

BTW: the above is not a threat.............it is a warning.
Sorry AZBear I am not willing to discard the language of my heritage because there are some wackos out there. My family are Americans, I served in the United States Navy to defend the right of free speech, free religion, etc.. and there are no laws saying we have to speak English when out in public.

I don't scare too easily, I am one of those guys who goes back to work in a NYC high rise the day after 9/11 and takes the subway there. I am done worrying about wackos, I have learned that much.

Guy admits it, and it is pretty blatant about generalizations.

Benicar has even said she doesn't like hearing Spanish at all anymore, I would say that admits prejudice.

Some of the new members like JDubsMom are plain out obvious, she has been caught multiple times showing her prejudice. Especially like the one where she made the mistake of posting crime of 2 guys from Guam and calling the Mexicans.
Boo, hoo, it deeply saddens me that you view me as a racist. The fact that you justify your opinion based on me "making a mistake" by calling someone from Guam a Mexican pretty much confirms your theory . . . NOT

If only all of you had a mirror, you might be able to point that finger of declaration at your own racist selves. The fact that you get upset when the TRUTH COMPLETE WITH LINKS, is a self explanatory reason for us to dislike illegal aliens, those of you who can't accept the truth about people you happen to share a race/ethnicity with typically call those who aren't a racist. Don't you think its time to start formulating a new trump card? The old one has been declared invalid in America.

People who run out of reasons to defend the indefensible always play the race card. I'm looking at you, AMC, Californio, sassyone and the rest of your gang who seem to have lost touch with reality.

Ok that is you and Benicar that have turned the racist word back on to me, yet you dislike being called racist (which I didn't call you, I said "prejudice").

So please, show me 1 example where I have been racist, just 1.

Agreed. I'm racist because I post articles that unmasks the abundant criminal element that negates the lies of all of those who claim they are here doing the jobs Americans won't do.

Funny thing about their synopsis, when there are articles that relate to illegal aliens who are not Mexican they don't comment. But of course it's my fault that the majority of the articles feature illegal aliens of Mexican descent. Forget about the reality that the majority of illegal aliens comitting crimes are from Mexico.

Makes sense doesn't it?
