Did I hate mention that I specifically hated Mexicans or was I singling out illegals? Sheesh.

In case you didn't know, being anti-illegal is NOT the same as being anti-Mexican/anti-Hispanic/anti-whatever.

Some of people need to improve their education.

Needless to say: some of the more extremist pro illegal alien lovers oftentimes will flat out lie to advance their treasonous agendas.

The more cities that are affected by illegal immigration, the more people hate illegal immigrants. They are all bad news. I am glad it is "spreading" beyond California. People around the nation need to OPEN THEIR EYES.

Give me a break. If you're so great, how come you're here and not with the other minutemen on the Arizona border?

I'm a traitor, huh? I served in the Navy, I volunteer with underserved youth, I helped over 1,000 low-level employees at high-payed doctor's offices gain retirement benefits. What have YOU done for your fellow Americans lately?

Stop throwing the word "treason" around...you have no clue what it means. America, being the land of the free, is a place where one can have an opinion without it being "treason". If you think opinions are "treason" you should move to Myanmar.

Admittedly not knowing much of the situation over there, I have the impression that the city hasn't rebounded too well and is still in a somewhat chaotic state.

The demographics have definitely changed, there are many immigrants(illegal and otherwise) that are there rebuilding the city. Why not Americans? I don't know.

But are the illegals really responsible for a wrecked city, rising crime rates(New Orleans used to be safe??!), slow city rebuilding, and a bad economy?

Or is this just the lingering effects of a devastating natural disaster and incompetent city officials not doing enough to bring New Orleans back on it's feet?

How many native New Orleanians have returned to their city?

You, who I assume isn't actually from New Orleans, seem more angry about the illegal presence in the city, than the actual hurricane that destroyed it, and the weak effort at rebuilding it.
Which do you think was the bigger issue in New Orleans?
u know i remember after the mayhem they didnt allow citizens to come back but they let people come back to french quarters and illegal mexicans were able to come in but not the vast majority of N.O citizens

Example?

I don't know know if you lie, but you sure do a whole lot of speculating and try to pass them off as facts for your agenda.
