This is not an issue of Hispanics, or any other group..it' simply a fact of human interaction. If you're going to make a public 'stand' on anything, you'd better not use my name without consulting me...because if you DO so, and your 'cause' is one I disagree with, I'm going to publically deny you.
And that's true regardless of WHO you are, or who I am....that's human nature.
In addition, there would be no need for YDSfM if all those pro-illegal & ethnocentric Hispanic 'civil rights' groups (i.e. La Raza, LULAC, MALDEF, etc.) didn't try to make illegal immigration out to be a Hispanic issue rather than being what it truly is, a political issue.

In the face of hardly ever hearing a legal hispanic come out against illegal immigration, it's high time for some high profile hispanic groups to come out against illegal immigration to at least show that not all hispanics aid and abet illegals.
Absolutely! This is the missing link. I hope they get enough publicity to clearly illustrate to the citizens of this country that there are indeed anti-illegal Hispanics. I had already forwarded the link to their website to all of my Hispanic friends.

It would be interesting if at least LULAC came out against illegal aliens.
