What have you done with your life to feel like you have the right to look down on people?

You should take some Latin American study classes or something rather than smirking at your own opinions as if they are facts.
Simple.

Let your precious illegal aliens from Mexican and other Hispanic lands go back home and build up their own nations.

The USA owes them nothing aside from confinement till their forced repatriation.

That explains your feelings toward Hispanics?
That didn't sound like an explanation. Sounds like a demand to illegal aliens.

It must be a great feeling to feel high and mighty and to feel like a better human for being lucky enough to be born in the USA, huh?

I'm grateful to be in this country, but I'm also humble about it.

The first major effect of overpopulation in Mexico is unemployment. First of all, there aren't enough sources of jobs in Mexico, so only the most prepared people get a job. This is a great social and economic problem because people who don't work get frustrated and can't support their families.
No economy on the planet can produce enough jobs to keep up with Mexico's massive birth rate. That is why the US is Mexico's outlet.

You act like Mexico is a communist country and the government is keeping the populace in bondage. Far from it. Mexicans inflict their own poverty by having so many kids. Cuba is far from rich but they didnt exaberate their poverty by promoting large familes. You are a American citizen. Stop defending Mexico. Let them grow up.

Even Arizona Bear admits the birthrate in Mexico is decreasing. Most of the crap being said about Mexicans and Hispanics on here is just attacks. Hispanophobia. Generalizations. Stereotypes.

Fact is, Mexico is a country with poverty, that is CONNECTED to the United States. Also, the United States has a history of bringing in Mexican workers.
Put China, Russia, even Great Britain in Mexico's place, and you'd see a lot of illegal immigrants coming from those places.

In Northern Mexico you'll find quite a few poor people with German last names as well as non-poor due to the large amount of Germans who came to that area (which is the reason why norteno music sounds like polkas and the accordion is so prominent).

And given the immigration history of Argentina and Uruguay many of the poor people in those countries have Italian (and to a lesser extent Slavic) last names just like many of the non-poor.

The Corsican last name "Santoni" is relatively common amongst all classes in Puerto Rico.

Bottom line:

With the notable exception of Spain itself: why in the hell are all Hispanic nations poor irrespective of their citizens' actual race then?

If there are so many people with German ancestry in Northern Mexico than how come I did not see alot of Mexicans with blond hair and blue eyes when I was in Tijuana. Most of the Nordic looking people that I saw in Tijuana were American tourists and not Mexican locals.

Tijuana is hardly a reflection of Mexican society. Even most of the 'Mexican locals' in Tijuana aren't Mexican locals.....they're recent immigrants from the rest of Mexico.

A generation ago, many people from Baja California didn't even call themselves "Mexicans"....they'd say "yo soy de Baja".

I know a huge family in my neighborhood whose 'patriarch' passed away about ten years ago (he gave me a job once). HIS Great grandfather had immigrated from Ireland to Baja California in the 1830's. Their Irish surname is fairly common in back-country BC, and though most of these folks don't "look Irish", quite a number of them do.

Funny that you say that: there is a family of Mestizo Hispanics living in Casa Grande, Az with the surname O'dell. Sometimes simply spelled 'Odell'
