Latinos can thank massive unabated illegal immigration for their woes. Coupled with the prevalence of arrogance, entitlement, decimation of nice neighborhoods, and crime. Furthermore, what’s wrong with deporting “good” illegal aliens? If they’re in this country illegally, they deserve deportation. They need to stop whining, and simply leave for more hospitable environments back home. The message is clear -- Illegals go home, we don’t want you here!

Latino immigrants feel alienated in Charlotte because of increasingly hostile public opinion and greater immigration enforcement, according to a report by the D.C.-based Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

“Charlotte was once a welcoming place in the 1990s, when business was booming and workers were needed,” said Joyce Deaton, author of the report. Today, she said, the climate has become one of “hate and persecution.”

“Is this the face we want to show the rest of the world?” Deaton asked. The center will study Charlotte and six other cities.

Mecklenburg County's Latino population has grown more than 1,000 percent since 1990, from nearly 7,000 people to more than 80,000 in 2007. Many arrived illegally.

“But we want the (enforcement) programs reviewed. People who have nothing on their record but a speeding ticket, honest people who are working, are getting deported.”

True. There are actually a number of good latino legal immigrants who carefully respected the law, are here on work visas. Sometimes you hear them, speaking accented English, trying very hard. It's unfortunate but with the large number of illegals, it hurts the good ones.

Two things need to stop and that's the rewarding of those who broke the laws and also family chain migration. Immigration should be limited to those who have employer sponsors and immediate family members -- spouse and minor age children of legal immigrants or citizens.

Remember my countless posts about innocent people (of any actual race/ethnicity) who may look stereotypically 'Hispanic' being caught in the crossfire? It is starting to occur.

As ghastly this sounds: methinks the safest people will either be Nordic White or dark skinned Black folks since few racists (of any actual heritage) will mistake either of the above for Mestizo.

Yes, it is sad, but it is human nature. As a black person, I have often been prejudged due to the ignorance exhibited by so many blacks. It isn’t fair, but again, it’s human nature.

Furthermore, there are black people who act so uncouth even I cringe when I encounter them. Why on earth would I begrudge a white person?

exactly, you, i or most rational people would just think : "well thats silly to generalize against me based on someone else!". we would not give others the "cold shoulder" or act unkindly based on a few people or instances.

i dont think its human nature tho. i think its the easiest step to take. assume "they" are all alike.

it is sad.

and i too cringe sometimes at certain behaviours exhibited by my peoples. but i dont reduce it to color or ethnicity. i think its the way people are raised. at least here in the US.

otherwise, the most respectful, quiet people i have encountered are immigrants. but i dont want to reduce it to citizenship either.

pretty complex...

Actually one might call this blow back. Given the hispanic community's blatent support of hispanic illegals. Given the protest marches calling for special rights for illegals. I would say that it is fair to say that the hispanic community has done it image a bit of harm with such actions. No not all hispanics do such things but enough do to warrent such attention.
Where is the public outrage from the hispanic community for the illegal immigrant invasion? This invasion which hispanics account for the vast majority of offenders.
Perhaps they would not be suffering the cold shoulder if they would only step up and condemn the actions of the criminal illegals.

They're too busy supporting them because they share an ethnicity or they have numerous illegal alien family members that they are harboring, aiding and abetting.

In their minds criminal or not their first loyalty is to their illegal alien familia. Despite how dogged out they are by their homelands whatever percentage is left over belongs to their country and "the race". I've worked with one that was married to an illegal alien and at another firm with one who was harboring her illegal alien grandmother.

Yet we are supposed to believe that millions of illegal aliens primarily from SOB stomping down America's streets yelling Viva Meheeco/LaRaza while waiving the mexican rag want to be Americans? Sure they do.
