i wonder why geraldo always say its a race issue. hispanic/latino isnt a race its a nationalism issue, and the fact is most hispanics care about their home country rather than the country they seek to stay in..

this should be a question ask by people who fill out immigration papers.
do your home country come first regarding issues or do you want your fellow countrymen to think home first and america second..

Unfortunately, the Jewish side of him remains in hiding, while the Puerto Rican side of him sides with Mexico.

It has also gone a long way to make American's see and appreciate the struggles the illegals have gone through.

NOT SO, Sassyone . . . it IS the responsibility of every Citizen of the United States to do whatever possible to protect the sovereignty of this country.

The "head in the sand" or "let someone else do it" approaches have never worked . . . AND NEVER WILL!

Have you ever checked to find out what it would cost them to come here and the wait time?
I have heard up to 20 years, long time to wait to do it legally and the cost is very high too.
I'm not saying it is right how they go about it, but it does not change my feelings on the people themselves.
A new vehicle can be expensive too, and I may have to wait for quite some time before I can get one.
Is it alright if I steal one?

Any struggles they may go through is perpetrated by themselvles. I have no sympathy for them what so ever.

Correct. Judaism is the religious affiliation but the term Jew or Jewish is also used as an ethnic distinction. I don't profess to be an expert I just know this because I have a few jewish friends.

You mean their struggles to sneak in here and mooch off the American taxpayer?
Put your money where your mouth is. Head on over to your local hospital, go to the billing department and tell them you would like to make a $100 donation to help cover the bills illegals run up and don't pay.

You know, if they are taking from the American taxpayer, which also includes myself. The hospitals and doctors have been screwing the patients (taxpayers) for years, I know because I pay my bills for their services.
