I am disgusted with the abuse of illegals here because it IS unjust. I've said it before and i'll say it again. We CANNOT reward this behavior. The first thing they do is break a Federal law. Can you imagine if you or I didn't pay our taxes. Would the Federal government give US food stamps, housing assistance etc. No we would have to pay them, with interest and penalties or worse face prosecution. So yes I can understand your anger but I'm not the one you should be angry with. We should just discuss our differences and agree to disagree...
You feel as I do when rednecks make all whites look bad. Or when I was a sailor and some shipmates would get drunk and make a scene. It reflected upon all of not just the handful acting like idiots. I agree with you. The hispanic community should be outraged with the stigma illegal Hispanics have brought upon them. More should stand up and denounce illegals and their crimes. Less should facilitate and harbor them. I applaud your attitude. Thank you for the outstanding post.

Yet funny enough, we don't associate everything White with rednecks.
I think I'm going to start referring to White people as non-redneck Whites.

I'm not outraged at illegals, I'm outraged at idiots who make no effort to make a distinction, and see Hispanics as a group that has good people and bad people like every other group.

I don't have to denounce anyone or do anything, because we're supposed to be American just like you.

I don't see Irish or Canadian immigrants doing that.

We let in far too many immigrants, we were a nation of immigrants 200 YEARS AGO, now all we do is let in millions of third world non-White peoples.

Just the other day there was a local news report of some Somali scum that had come to the country and 48 hours there was a stabbing. it was news because they needed to find someone who could speak their language. diversity, we all benefit. lol...
Yes. You don't see groups of Germans demanding that because they are "Der Rasse" or French saying "La Race", that they must not be expected to abide by the laws of this country.

Our population is growing incredibly fast -- and while the over 2 billion impoverished people of the world might like to come here for their better life, they all cannot come.

Immigration must be orderly and it must not be used for ultra cheap labor and destroy our standard of life.

If other countries are having over-population problems, if their lower classes are reproducing out-of-control then those countries need to address those problems. Expecting the USA to absorb all the excessively breeding poor of the world isn't reasonable.
