Fear, Hate, Racism. Some groups even "patrol" the borders with loaded weapons looking to shoot people .

Etc. Etc.
Some pro-illegal groups follow MEChA's, The Brown Berets' and The Mexica Movement's racist & ethnocentric brown supremacist strategies:

"Any opposition to illegal immigration (a crime) is racism/discrimination"
"We have every right to enter illegally"
"The Southwest belongs to Mexico"
"White people go home"
"Don't enforce the laws"
"Laws should be ignored to cater to trespassers"

Political correctness, suppression of free speech, not distinguishing legals from illegals, and playing the race card are all common tactics that you pro-illegals love to use to oppose any legitimate criticism of illegals to further your own selfish and one-sided agendas.

Extremists exist on both sides of an issue and trying to link all anti-illegal sentiment to KKK tactics is like me linking all pro-illegal sentiment to The Mexica Movement's racist, ethnocentric & brown supremacist tactics.

The motto of Anti-Illegal groups

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. *The above does not apply to colored people, that includes the indeginous peoples of the Americas"

We used to have open borders. One of our first immigration laws was against all Chinese; yet without them, America would have never really expanded; atleast not as fast. We would have had to of used slave labor..

You know, when we had open borders America was growing strong but now look at America...

Since when did any anti-illegals oppose LEGAL immigration.

Again trying to confuse legal immigration & illegal immigration will not work.

Anti-illegal & pro-legal sentiment is not racism.

That's why we have an immigration system.

The United States accepts tens of thousands of Central American, Asian, and African immigrants every year. No one is protesting against that.

We anti-illegals believe in LEGAL immigration only.

Illegal (<—— do you know what that word means?) immigration is a crime and we oppose it. Is any of this difficult to understand?


Do you have any idea of what distinguishes legal immigration from illegal immigration?

Actually, I have seen many Black Americans, Legal Assyrian and Asian Immigrants that are ANTI-Illegal Immigration..

The Chinese did help to build the railroads, however, many of the Chinese that relocated to America assimilated and became a part of American society.. The Chinese also did NOT receive the number of taxpayer subsidized handouts as the current generation of Illegal Aliens..

The woman starting this organization is a loon and is an apologist for taxpayer subsidized labor.. Seems she has a vested interest in keeping illegals in this country at the expense of the American White-Collar worker..

Open borders? What a joke. The scant amount of time when we had 'open borders' the US was not the US yet and the only way to get to America was if you could afford passage on a boat plus start up money to farm/set up shop OR you sold yourself as an indentured servent for seven years. Any which way there was no social safety net and a hell of a lot of people died from disease, starvation, accident and war.
What does this have in common with illegals today? They are not paying their own way (and paying money to a coyote doesn't count) they take advantage of an already overburdened social safety net and they undercut wages for everyone else - you know, like actual citizens and legal immigrants.

It is not because they are brown (look at all the brown, black, yellow legal immigrants that come in every year) it is because they are parasitic scab laborers. They do not benefit society as a whole, instead the leech from it.

Actually most did not. Most did not speak English, most weren't even near whites. But history shows entire Chinese towns being killed by whites. Most recieved little to no pay. Most did not have rights. Racism was perfectly accepted in those days but now a majority of racists hide.

Illegals do not steal from America. If they were getting American hand outs they would have to give information about who they are. They will then be found an illegal immigrant.

American White-Collar? What Blue Collar doesn't pay taxes?

Do you ACTUALLY believe that the U.S. can allow every desperate, impoverished person in the world to come here? Do you SERIOUSLY believe that under the weight of all that NEED, and all the POVERTY, that the U.S. wouldn't completely collapse?

Do you ACTUALLY believe that allowing tens to hundreds of millions of tired, poor, huddled masses into the U.S. is a good thing?

You need to face reality. The U.S. has grown into a country of 300 million people. We simply do not have the resources to double that number.

They may have certain rights.

But the fact of the matter is they don't have the right to be here at all.

Illegals are humans too. In fact, those people everyone complains about are Americans too.

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free"

Is there a fine print saying "*except people of color?"
People of color are fine; they're equal to whites. MANY LEGAL people of color (including many Hispanics) are VEHEMENTLY anti-illegal themselves. In fact, white people who are illegal are NOT welcome either.

How can you not see that this has nothing to do with racism?

Let me break it down for you.

Illegal alien = not allowed to be present in the United States

Other = allowed to be present in the United States

Was race mentioned at all in my explanation?

We have never had open borders in modern times.... Ellis Island comes to mind..

The railroad barons used chinese labor because it was cheaper, no matter what you have heard or read in a history book.
