ITA and have never stated otherwise. You keep lumping all hispanics together and blaming me for doing that. Don't you recognize your own patterns?

ETA: I stand by my assessment (it's not an assumption) that Mexico has a culture of corruption. I even posted an article to that effect. That does not equate to all hispanic cultures. Again, comprehension is key.

It doesnt matter if I lump all hispanics together, I dont think any people are more inclined to do crime because of ethnicity or race.

You have made frequent comments about the "family values" of Mexicans.
The Mexican GOVERNMENT is corrupt, but that doesn't say anything about the people.

Oh but it does matter. Mexican is NOT a race or ethnicity. The majority of those who have grown up and lived under the rule of the Mexican Government, (whether you admit it or not) have come here and brought the conditions and criminal activities they have been taught to survive and live under with them. When you don't know any better you can't do any better. They do what they know, lie, steal, cheat, ignore our laws, have children as a means of financial support, whatever it takes to survive. Nobody obeys the laws in Mexico, so why obey the laws of America, especially since they are virtually unidentifiable, nobody really knows who they are right? Therfore they cannot be held accountable.

Proof: The multitude of articles that are readily available of the heinous crimes they perpetually commit. I am merely the messenger and no matter how many times you all try to shoot me for it, the content of those articles keep me bullet proof.

A corrupt country doesnt say anything about the people? I think a good lot of them bring these corrupt values with them. It this is what you desire for the USA, then so be it, open the borders, grant blanket amnesty, change our standard of living to better accomodate the masses coming. Might as well burn all our American flags and raise the Mexican flag.

Wow, what a pathetic low ball statement. I guess your "family values" are to make judgmental statements like that, good to know.

To answer your question, yes I'm legal.
One of my coworkers; also originally from your part of the nation, is of Italian and Puerto Rican heritage as well.
