Illegal immigrants aren't spreading small pox via blankets...Not the same scenario.

How about these diseases brought in by those whose illegal entry you advocate? Do they meet with your approval?

Of all TB cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control in 1997 — the last year studied — 39% were in foreign-born persons. This is an increase from 1986, when 22% of cases were in foreign-born persons. Tuberculosis case rates were seven times greater in the foreign-born compared with the US-born population.

Not really actually. This wasn't a deliberate attempt. This was not bio-warfare, this is more a reflection of how unequal access to healthcare is globally.

More in line with the topic of discussion, it is indicative of the reality that there are reasons that we have laws in this country and a reality that unchecked illegal aliens bring with them and spread diseases that were once eradicated in the US.

Which brings me to another point, those so called hispanic "Americans" who condone the illegal entry of those with whom they share a race or ethnicity, even if they kill Americans of other races and ethnicities who don't.

The red are some corrections that need in order to be accurate. Again much of that standpoint is purely speculation and should be treated as such.

Uh, that is one of the reason that immigrants must come legally. They receive the necessary healthchecks to protect Americans from desease. It would not be outrageous to expect that some of these illegals do carry infectious deseases especially since many come from squalid conditons.

So what? If they outnumber us as the settlers did with the indians we will just naturally die out.

Not really. See genocide killed most fof the native Americans. Also, seeing how MOST (meaning citizen, legal immigrant, illegal immigrant) people assimilate to a new consumer based global culture, it really isn't the same comparison.
