And the pro-illegals sit back and smile with content knowing their friends and relatives that are here illegally are robbing US taxpayers. What happened to all that "pride" we hear about? The family pride about how they can be hard working. How can they be hard working and stealing at the same time?

It sounds like the opposite to me. The word is shame.

PLEASE...don't confuse the issue with 'facts'.....nobody's interested in a lot of nit-picking demographics, OK? Let's just stick to the basic 'slurs'...YOU KNOW PERFECTLY WELL what they mean.

A person can work hard at stealing. Some crooks are very industrious. Unfortunately, we make it altogether too easy for the illegals to come in and loot the place. We need to make it more of a challenge.

I can only answer for what I wrote, not for your misinterpretation, I never mentioned the diversity they represent.
Still NCLR members are not ILLEGAL ALLIENS. They just happen to be "mostly" BROWN American citizens.

I have known many White Hispanics over the years----------several of who bought into that MEChA/La Raza type nonsense as well despite having fair skin and blue eyes.

And I know some 'brown' Anglos who get mistaken for Latino a lot.

What part of MOSTLY brown implied that they are ALL BROWN? IF the way they look has nothing to do with the label ILLEGAL ALLIENS what profile is used to make this determination?

What did I misinterpret? Apparently the word “mostly” is only a figment of your imagination, because it certainly does NOT appear in your post. That’s ok -- Freudian slips happen.

Swordfish, They are right. Latinos are diverse people. There is no brown people simply because you can find color diversity even within a family. That is a missconception.

Either NCLR members are all brown, partially brown or any other color, how this make NCLR members ILEGAL ALIENS? Are you telling me that the way they look has nothing to do with this assumption?
