Alright, I couldn't help but respond.

Why do you assume that he "was generalizing that all white americans who are questioning third world immigration are racists"? And why do you assume that "he is assuming that most people who complain about immigration are racists"?

Maybe I haven't tied into the racial undertones of the statement, "not every single immigrant who came into the United States through Ellis Island had proper documentation. Not every one of our grandparents or great-grandparents would have necessarily qualified for legal immigration." because they simply don't exist.

I'm afraid you are trying to make lemonaide out of left-over lemon zest, and to no avail.

Oooohhh Running like an el Pollo? When Liberals are defeated they resort to name calling. I'm afraid that it is Liberals who have made zest for the Past fifty years because nobody has stood up to them until now!!!

Default fooled again

Have we not been fooled enough already to know that once they get the job they can do whatever they want even break the laws that the pres. is supposed to follow. Sorry I believe NOTHING when it comes to these people running for pres. recent history shows us this....

Default Wakeup

Perhaps the simpliest solution would be to hold employers accountable for hiring illegal immigrants. Granted it would not stop all illegal activity, but it would definately curtail much. Without low paying jobs or government hand outs, the great land of "opportunity" would be less desirable for many. Presidente Fox has alot of reform to do in his socialist government. America should not become the refuge for a country that takes more than it gives. What ever happened to the days of the great depression where immigrants had great pride in their contribtions to the economy, those who were reluctant and embarrassed to take any sort of welfare.

Amavel, you're absolutely right about the outrageousness of that conclusion...Some of the comments about the Jews being responsible for the mafia, Hitler being part Jewish, and the other fantastical versions of history sound familiar...Something from the old neo-nazi version of Western Civ?....These are no scholars; apparently, they don't even know how to spell Charlemagne.

BTW, I don't want Obama for president and one of my greatest wishes is that all illegal aliens would return home yesterday... But, I wouldn't go so far as to say that those of us who came here before 1965 "have the right to detest" anyone who came after...But, then, again, I'm just a patriotic American who wants the best for her country, not some wannabe nazi fanatic.

BTW, if you want to understand the the basis for the absurd conclusion that "Obama hates white people," just think race war. That's what these types of posts are intended to incite. They want all of us of European descent to believe that all the minorities hate us and are plotting against us. So, why not join with our 'white,' albeit insane, (neo-nazi) 'brethren' who will protect us from the mongrel hordes?

I call it like I see it.

Isn't he half white?

I don't think any president will do ANYTHING. I think we'll have to do it state by state, which has already begun.

I think we have a double edged sword. He's deported more than most and amnestied more than most except Reagan. He got it half right. The amnesty magnet is going to bring even more. How many people do we need in the US? Billions?

Omg!! Hes deporting more, because he has done nothing to secure the border. And now anyway he isn't deporting anyone except murderers, and rapists.
