I stand by what I stated.

And; comparing Gay people here in the USA legally to a bunch of insolent criminals from Mexico, etc. is a slap in the face to the former.

I don't have a big dog in this fight, but, I might have a simple explanation on why most Americans tend to resent (and generally lump together) latino, illegal and spanish names. Pre-conditioning perhaps? "Pavlov's dog syndrome" over a period of just a few years? Doesn't make it right ,but, it does seem to fit the pattern here. People come up with a negative sterotype from prior generations, news papers, ect. ec.

The US seems to have issues with illegal aliens having legal children, if you ask me if the parents are illegal then the children are too.

I say round them u p send them back and tell them if they want tolive in the USA they need to get visa and apply for citizenship.

with the state of the economy, and few jobs out there, sending them back may actually help the ecomomy.

Well it doesn't help when you see these protest marches demanding amnesty for illegals. Add to this the fact that the majority of illegals are in fact hispanic.

In today's world we wouldn't need unions if there was no illegal immigration.

Very good point.

Right now everything tied to a 'greedy union' is tanking. That includes CAs budget.

Two wrongs make it worse, social services being siphoned by Ilegal Aliens and pay and benefits granted to State Union employees. Double jeopardy.

Next week after 1a-1f tanks we'll begin some reform.

Man that is everywhere and we wonder why our public schools are less than succesful. Here in PA the teachers Unions have a death grip on the school districts. Don't even talk about any form of job accountability.
