The cold reality is that most illegal aliens here in the USA are indeed Mexican nationals--------brown skin or not.

And what makes it worse is the above's mere presence is a slap in the face of those Mexican folks who immigrated here legally.

Is saying that most illegals are of Mexican background the same as saying most people of mestizo appearance are illegals?

Certainly.....just as saying "most Mafia members are of Italian descent" is the same thing as saying 'most people of Italian descent are Mafia members'......or like "most rapists are males" is pretty much equivalent to saying "most males are rapists".

If it isn't an EXACT match, it's apparently close enough for many members of this forum.....and that's 'close enough'....right?

If 'most white racists oppose illegals', I suppose you could say that 'most people who oppose illegals are white racists', and be FAIRLY close to the truth....and even if you're not, it SOUNDS good.
