People who would steal into a country, unwelcomed and sponge off the public trough, people who would take jobs from Americans, use and abuse public services they have never contributed to and are not entitled to, those who would scoff at our drinking and driving laws, participate in identity theft and falsified documents, are not gentle souls deeply offended. They are bullies, scoundrels, liars and thieves who have identified a nation, willingly exploited, to take advantage of. They do not appreciate having their scams exposed to the light of day and the sooner we understand this, and exploit it, the better off we will all be.

The following is an excerpt from the hate filled email I received, after the publication of my latest article. The emailer scoffs at my assertion that Mayor Lou Barletta, of Hazleton, PA. was under attack because of his fight against illegal immigration in his city.

C.J. Graham -- Proof Positive - They Can Dish It Out But They Can't Take It!

Long but interesting . . .

Apparently, some who hurl racist statements at Americans for trying to protect their country couldn’t take even a little needling without throwing a fit

The 'race card' is all but impotent when it comes to illegal aliens: almost everyone but the stated delusional losers are realizing that.

Did anyone else have a little laugh when the angry emailer told CJ Graham that he had a "lack of ignorance?"

"Your biased opinion only serves to illuminate your lack of substance, ignorance, and decency."

If only all hate mail were so funny. It's the little things in life...

I don't doubt that there are people who post here who are racist and hate anyone who isn't a wasp. That's beside the point. Illegal immigration is WRONG, regardless of who it is.

I don't think the actual issue of illegal immigration has anything to do with race, but one would have to be a delusional loser himself to think the issue of race doesn't have any kind of influence on the attitude of many(not all) toward illegal immigrants.

Of course Latinos make up the majority of illegal immigrants, but you won't see the same fuss made over an illegal British guy hanging out at a bar in Santa Monica as you would see over a Hispanic day laborer who MIGHT be illegal.

And before you go in your typical "Latinos aren't a race" speech, the fact is, most Latino illegal aliens in this country are not white.
They are mostly mestizo of varying degrees or native American.

That is becoming truer by the day. Years ago I stopped paying attention to "racism" -- it's remarkable what the world looks like once you jettison that word from your personal lexicon.

Your point is taken but you over look the obvious. Hispanics get hit the hardest because they are the majority of the abusers..... Its that simple. Add to that the hispanic communities insistance upon special consideration and rights for hispanic illegals. Add even further the fact that the hispanic community both facilitates and supports illegals even when they know the illegal is less than a model citizen. All races do the same thats true but the fact that we are talking 13 + million makes it much more apparent.
You want the crap to end? Start turning the illegals in. Stand them up and make them answer for their many tresspasses.
