It certainly does. I also find it rather ironic that she would be ostracized for coming from a country they flock to by the millions to "seek a better life" -- the land of milk and honey.

She will be lucky if only ostracized but it is not because she came from USA but it's because she "chose" English over Spanish . American "culture/ways" over Mexico's.

You can come here and go back countless do but don't come back "American" over Mexican.

There is no tolerance for diversity in Mexico .

Even other Hispanic groups who go there for work can be KILLED and many are to this day.

Just as I have always suspected. The majority are racists who hate Americans who come here to use, abuse and steal whatever they can get from us. Thanks for confirmation!

In other words, the idea of them coming here to become an "American" and assimilate, etc., is nothing but a huge manipulative lie, as I suspected. All of these sob stories, in particular those involving illegal children in our schools, aka DREAMies who are “American” and have no desire to be anything but American, is pure garbage. They will continue to use us until we put an end to this nonsense.

Well, I got spit on this afternoon and called a coconut because I am against illegals and wish to see a moratorium on legal immigration for a time until the country gets itself back together.

Someone actually spit on you?! That's outrageous. You have every right to your opinion, and you shouldn't have to contend with criminal apologists. They are the traitors, not you. Hang in there, we will prevail.

Any people who have family/friends living in mexico care to commet on this?

Would this be jealousy that this girl holds dual citizenship? Or is it la raza unfettered....in mexico they can be as blatantly racist as they want to be?

In either case, I do feel all the more sorry for the girl and others like her. But I also wonder where her parents first loyalty lies.

While living in Mexico City, I was told more then once that any person of mexican parents who is raised in the US is NOT considered a mexican because they have been Americanized for a use of a better word. Dual citizenship or not, they ar considered Americans. What else can I say, thats what they told me. The poor girl would have a hard time in their schools. The role could be reversed if a 13 yr old mexican girl was dropped into a 7th grade junior high school in the states. It would be very rough for her. Stefhen
