All the posts I read are racist. Do you people even know the difference between a legal immigrant and an illegal alien? I only wonder what is going to happen in the near future, when the all mighty USA succumbs to China and Europe. All empires have lost their number one place in history. Ours will be here soon. Where would you go? Would you fight for your country? or would you MIGRATE to Canada?

If you had read these posts, you would undoubtedly know that the regular posters of this forum do know the difference between illegal aliens and legal immigrants. You would also have picked up on the fact that regardless of color or ethnic background, illegal aliens should not be offered amnesty however legal immigration can be a boon to our country.
Seriously, did you read anything here at all? Or were you doing the typical liberal knee jerk reaction that anyone who opposses illegal immigration must also oppose not only legal immigration but must be racist as well? Talk about a leap in logic!

I oppose illegal immigration too, but I don't make it a habit of running after them with a torch and a trident. Thanks for recognizing I am a liberal. It is not an insult, but a virtue. Socialism is finally coming to America tomorrow.

That makes you a Pacifist while also being a Liberal, possibly. I am also a Liberal and a Pacifist. I do not agree, however, that Immigration in particular is a Racist issue. Economies are finite, even one as extensive as the U.S. it was bound to struggle under the weight of millions of LEGAL immigrants, Adding the burden of undocumented (illegal) immigration led to a collapse. It will not bring Socialism to the U.S. it will bring Anarchy and worse.

Everybody who is wrapped up in the fearmongering of "illegal immigration" invariably displays all kinds of signatures of the racist mind. I for one essentially NEVER even bother to read this "Immigration" forum. I just happened to see your thread on the transition page. Yup, you're exactly right. Although I'm not going to be bothered with any opinions on this forum because I find it beneath my attention to even bother to address this absurb and contrived "issue", I did want to stop by and say kudos to you for summing the whole issue up for what it is.

I wonder when Reagan's ghost will turn up on the Mexican border saying "Mr Bush, tear down this wall..."

Finally I'll note that BushCo passed legislation making immigration from SAUDI significantly easier. Not to mention that particular episode of Saudi emmigration on 9/13/01. Hmmmm... no rightwingers blabbering about that, eh?

^LOL! Hilarious.

I think most people avoid the immigration forum, lots of paranoid kooks. But it does make for some comedy every now and then.

The overwhelming majority of us who oppose illegal immigration aren't racist. You've probably convinced yourself that we are because you can't seem to understand why people are fed up with the amount of illegal immigrants committing crimes, demanding rights they're not entitled to, using and never paying for hospital services and trying to oppress free speech to further their own political motives.

I've lived in areas that are infested with illegal immigrants so I certainly have a reason to be very fed up with them.

How about next time you actually read through some posts instead of making blanket statements based on your ignorance.

Reagan was talking about the Berlin wall -- a wall that seperated one country (Germany). Are you trying to say that a wall between Mexico and the US would seperate one country? One nation?
As far as W being in the pocket of the Saudis -- isn't it despicable? As is W's 'friendship' with Vincente Fox and now Calderon, two leaders who solve their countries problems with poverty by exporting their poor to the US.

Exactly. I love how some people say that a wall on the US-Mexican border will divide us, but how?

Mexico already has 47 consulates in our country and we have 9 in theirs. I see no political division at all.

Will it divide our communication? If you want to contact anyone use a telephone, fax machine, computer, etc. Technology is available in Mexico as far as I know.

If any Mexicans want to come over here they can always do it LEGALLY! Drive by vehicle to a border checkpoint, get on a plane, get on a boat.

Division? Don't make me laugh.
