So you back up your theory with the actions of a political group?
Isn't that kind of like your judging the whole country of Mexico on a short trip to Tijuana?

And "some 'La Raza' advocacy group"? Really?

Thats pretty disturbing how you group ALL Latino groups in a negative manner.


Theres plenty of people who identify as Latino and recognize Latino culture that don't give a damn about politics. It may be a newer culture, but its still a culture.

I stand by what I stated.

If living here in the USA: assimilate or be sidelined..........and, I am referring to legal folks only---------the hell with the illegals.

their effort is admirable, but it won't work. the one thing that WILL make a big impact is to make the use of e-verify federal law. we can talk about eliminating the entitlements to the illegals until we're blue in the face, but our corrupt polititions will never make it happen. that is until they realize that the country really IS going down the sh*tter.

e-verify is the most "racist" proof weapon american taxpayers have. that tool alone won't solve the problem, but it will have a huge impact. i guarantee it.
