As for your hubby: the man is an American--------not Guatemalan.

That would be akin to referring to my father as a 'Hungarian': he is a naturalized US citizen.
No he is an American Guatemalan. He won't give up his culture. The Guatemalans I know are special. More prideful or something.

It would torture anyone to see somone, especially one they cared about suffer with AIDS. I am disappointed. I thought you were kinder than that. that sounded more like something ma dubs would say.
The word reality comes to mind. Those oversexed guys in Africa, etc. need to keep it in their pants-----------bottom line. AIDS is well known over there

Once a culture controls its birthrate...........the death rate tends to decline as well.

Problem solved.

Or; perhaps Mexico needs to surrender 10% of her nation's land in exchange for us keeping their miscreants? Such a deal would mean the death of use of Spanish, etc. in the territories in question.
Kind of like cultural genocide? cool.

You call it cultural genocide when the majority culture demands that (legal) immigrants assimilate into US society----------which is a slap in the face of those folks who were murdered in pogroms. The Jews during WW II come to mind.

I'll admit, even though we usually have different points of view, I like your sense of humor. I DO support a secure southern border but I can't say that I'm for the destruction of Mexican culture outside of the current US border (Besides, It's too complicated to carry out that plan anyway.) It's nice to see someone willing to disagree yet be civil about it. (I;m still kinda new here and this isn't something I've seen on this forum often.)

Regardless of differing opinions, always happy to be civil and respectful of those willing to be the same with me.

You KNOW I'm not saying anything offensive or out of disrespect towards genocide victims like the Jews. We've been through that in a different thread.

And in your scenario of annexing northern Mexico, I don't think that would make them illegal immigrants.

Cultural genocide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ironically enough from the above:

Some right-wing activists have applied the term to what they see as a downfall of Western civilization due to liberal immigration policies, diversity, and multiculturalism.

Everyone should work as a group and except others own opinions. It would be so much more productive.
Unless I missed the post, catfishing did not enter this forum spewing insults at individual members -- unlike certain newbies whose trollish behavior was intended only to inflame and disrupt this forum. Bianca.G comes to mind (may she RIP until her reincarnation).

Catfishing merely stated opinions which differed from the pro-illegal sentiment. Consequently, he/she was attacked in normal self-righteous pro-illegal fashion. We are ALL entitled to our opinion. However, there’s a difference between a legitimate debate, and blatant harassment and disrespect.

Another example of the growing desperation of the pro illegal crowd...........machismo covering up fear IMHO.
