To answer the OP's question. No, I am NOT racist. I simply believe the Rule of Law should apply to ALL.
Agreed again.

Yeah, right.

I knew a racist. He ran all kinds of races but hardly ever won any of them. I think it was because he was a bigot. His head was to big, his feet were to big. He was a bigot for sure.

"Hi, I'm bambam and I'm a racist." speaker, "hi bambam, what are you thinking today?"

"I think laws should be enforced, and that it cost to much for us to give welfare to the never ending wave of immigration.... *sniffle*..... and that we should, as natives have a say in how OUR tax money is spent....*sniffle*"

speaker "Its OK bambam, you are way wrong, but we can fix you, you will see how much better you will feel when you see all the immigrants you are feeding, and all the immigrant kids you are educating, and all the free housing for immigrants your are paying for."

*bambam vomits*

I don't know--if you look at the attached statistics from FAIR about the cost of illegal immigration, it is pretty obvious to me that America cannot continue to carry this burden. $106.3 billion in costs to the US by the year 2020, eleven years from now, for just three areas--education, medical care and incarceration. When are Americans going to wake up and oust the idiots in Congress holding these "kangaroo court" hearings for immigration reform. If amnesty is granted, woe to America and all its pre-amnesty citizens. I don't understand at all why people think it's racist to object to promoting one group of people by placing the extreme expense, hardship on the backs of American citizens.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR): The Costs to Local Taypayers for Illegal Aliens (http://www.fairus.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=16723&security=1601&news _iv_ctrl=1007 - broken link)

Red face Me Encanta Mexico

I think the Mexicans are "entitled" to the work because they obviously work harder than the white people do. Entitlement generation or not. This ought to cause some sturm and drang (if you don't know what it means-look it up)I am all for the illegals. I don't care how they got here or when they got here. Life in Mexico is poverty and hell and corruption. They deserve a chance just like anyone else whoever came to the United States. Legal or Illegal. How quickly a few generations pass and everyone becomes an American elitist who forgets that their ancestors could've been illegal immigrants. Learn a thing or two about work ethic and family values from these people and open your eyes. What a bunch you all are!

I call BS on that. Especially factoring in that illegal aliens will work hard or be deported if they speak up against being abused.

The per capita income in Mexico is over $14K a year.............that is not exactly poor factoring in Mx's lower cost of living.

Mexico's problem is the rich people (mostly White) refuse to pay proper wages to the mostly Indian/Mestizo poor people-----------which is not our problem.
