Bingo!

Too; I can feel my own prejudice growing against many aspects of especially Mexican Hispanic* culture courtesy of the illegal aliens and their supporters; the difference is I see it and face it down whereas many other individual irrespective of race/ethnicity would likely go 'over the edge'. That truly frightens me for obvious reasons.

And that gives you the right to harass me or to jump me? It's bad enough I had to grow up in a neighborhood where I risked getting jumped every day by people who looked like me. Now I have to worry about you too? This isn't the 60s.

We're "snuffing out the American dream?" Uh, no, it's still there -- you simply need to apply legally to come here and wait your turn. I LOVE the argument that says these poor, poor folks can't possibly apply legally because it costs so much! Well, how is it that many of them can pay a sleazy coyote $2,500 to smuggle them in but they can't afford to file the papers appropriately?

This country accepts millions of LEGAL immigrants every year. There are at least a dozen different Visa programs for laborers and farm workers that permit them to come and work legally. Thus, there is NO excuse for the whining media to pretend that it's just awful that America isn't providing for the illegal immigrants. Right, as if any Latin American country would roll out the red carpet for illegal immigrants in their countries? Heh.

I couldn't agree more. I am as anti-illegal as they come, but I don't want anyone targeted for violent retribution. That behavior is no better than the tactics used by the Klan, and I will NEVER condone it.

Sadly, if this mess isnít resolved soon, the extremists from both sides will clash, and it WILL be very ugly.

In my opinion, They already do so, why would it matter to any of you. The illegals are killing Americans everyday. It's like a war zone. If the government condones illegal aliens murdering Americans and taking jobs, sucking up social services, living in public housing, raping children, then maybe, it's time for the American people to take matters into their own hands.

The media doesn't even report a fraction of the horrendous crimes the illegal aliens commit and the ones they do, they don't tell us they're illegal aliens. There's a large percentage of heinous crimes that illegal aliens commit that aren't caught and they get away with them.

The Arm chair warriors aren't going to cut it for very much longer. Fight Fire With Fire. Either that or start voting out the politicians, all of them! It's either Vote or Violence. I don't see much else of a choice, do you? I see that our country has been invaded and it's under attack and American's are losing their lives daily, to a silent and dangerous enemy.

Nahhhh...really??


The weak minded usually can't help but become prejudiced. It's hard for them to think outside of stereotypes.

Weak minded people swim the Rio Grande and slither under barbed wire fences to illegally enter into a country where they are not wanted and don't belong.

They should go back to their countries of origin and riot in the streets and make their own government treat it's people better. They should vote their politicians out of office, and vote in new politicians that will help it's countries people.
