Okay, I'll post a few of your hundreds of comments on Mestizos, Hispanics, and Mexican-Americans that have nothing to do with illegal immigration. And as usual, you'll cry about them being taken out of context. Here we go.

First:
we have a recent, prejudiced lie of yours.

You are grasping at straws there. The cold reality is as I described. Call it prejudice, etc.-----------I do not care. Face it: the 'race card' does not work on me.

Um that isn't a lie, at least around here. I know many US-born Latinos who speak with an accent that is peculiar to Latinos and Latinos alone. And many US-born Latino children start kindergarten or first grade unable to speak English. I know people of all races who are teachers and they say that is one of their biggest headaches. It is not true of all US-born Latinos but it is true of many of them, so how can it be a lie?

One of your infamous anecdotes. Relevance to immigration?

Link stating US born Latinos are unable to speak English? Also, what kind of accent? New Englanders have an accent. Southern people have an accent. African-Americans have an accent. Italian-Americans have a stereotypical accent.

Waiting for a link.

Consider the source.

Try again: if discussing people of Italian lineage back east; their accent is generic to the Northeast for many Anglos. The ones here speak standard English .

Anti-illegal immigration, or Anti-Hispanic?

Why I say that is quite a few 'Chicanos' have white skin and blue eyes.

Besides: what would Gutierrez do if confronted by a White Mexican? He would most likely revert to the peon mindset so prevalent in Hispanic culture.

No, it's OPINION. But are you talking about "just illegals", or Hispanic culture as a whole? Hmm?
