Also, do you think that ultimately the way to solve illegal immigration is not via some sort of comprimise (be it with illegal immigrants and/or those for illegal immigrant/immigrant rights).
yes...what is said around here by most posters is very repetitive and worded for the purpose of inciting negative emotions...

It's simple. The illegal Mexican invasion, being overwhelmingly composed of hordes of illegal Mexicans of course, used up any good will anti illegals might have had towards illegal Mexicans. The vast hordes of illegal Mexicans in this country are what is ruining this country, and is what is causing the deep seething resentment toward illegal Mexicans. The other nationalities of illegal aliens are insignificant when compared to illegal Mexicans. These other nationalities are contributing to but not actually doing the ruining of this country that illegal Mexicans are and, therefore, still have maybe a spark of goodwill left from some anti illegals. Illegal Mexicans have NO spark of goodwill left from anti illegals.

Wow! Sounds like you are defending making a RACIST Comment against any group that isn't Hispanic.. Nice to see the TRUE Colors of yours and other ethnocentric posters come out!

Also, I don't recall ANYONE on this board making an Anti-Hispanic comment.. Most of the people that want our immigration laws enforced could care less about the race of the people that illegally invade our country, it seems that the Pro-Illegal folks always bring RACE into this issue..

Most people could care less if it was a bunch of Chinese, Scandanavian, West African, etc.. people that came into this country Illegally, commit crimes, refuse to learn the language and expect everyone to assimilate to THEIR culture, it is the fact that this is happening.. PERIOD!

Yes, it is a fact that a majority of those illegally in the U.S. are from Mexico, again though, this isn't a discussion about race as much as it is a discussion about rule of law... It seems that Pro-Illegal types like to throw the "race card" around because they have no other justification for allowing people to break the law!

Think about it:

Too many pro illegal types who happen to be 'Hispanic' bet on the wrong horse AKA amnesty back in 2006 during the illegal 'immigrants' rights marches. Had said Hispanics turned against the illegal aliens and their friends----------we probably would not be having this conversation.

The repercussions are still being felt.

The antics of the above have endangered Americans and green card holders who happen to be of Latino lineage or at least look 'Mestizo'.

Thank for nothing: illegals and friends, thanks for nothing.

It's not racist to suggest Hispanics don't learn English or have any desire to assimilate, but when I suggest there are many Asians who also don't speak English(like Hispanics, mostly new arrivals), it becomes racist?

In other words, it's offensive and racist to sully "good minorities" like Asians by comparing them to those Hispanics. Hm.

"Wow!" Oh Geez! Mercy!

Priceless? Well, if the extent of your guys' knowledge of Asians only goes as far as college campuses, then I wouldn't be too surprised.

Maybe there are some jobs illegals take that you guys would want to do. Like cherry-picking.

Looking at our deepening recession: even the 'jobs that Americans won't do' are looking pretty damn good.
