That is exactly what I have been saying from day one.

That is it exactly.

It is not "racist" to be against illegal immigration. That is just the argument the 'other side' throws at you to make you feel bad and back down so you are not pegged a racist. I really don't care what people think. I am against Illegal Immigration no ifs ands or buts.

My reply to the 'race card' is the criminal 'card': I can safely say that 100% of all illegal aliens age 18 and older are such factoring in ID theft, non reporting of income--------crimes that would put an American in Federal prison.

I think something like that everytime I see one picked up for something illegal. Just the other day hispanic male ran over and killed a 2 year old girl in Portland and I am willing to bet anything he is here illegally. It seems all the hispanic in the news for illegal activity are here illegally... coinicidence??

America is known for being a melting pot -- there are legal immigrants from all over the world here, key word legal. If all of these illegals came in the correct way, and became productive members of society, I highly doubt there would be as much animosity towards them? I don't know, I personally enjoy diversity and love learning about new cultures, but I don't understand why we would condone a criminal act?
Here's a reality check. There is no such thing as racism! The term racism is a government fabrication to have diverse cultures turn on each other. There is only one race THE HUMAN RACE!!! The term Racism is used to shut people down when they disagree or when certain groups want to elevate. If we speak about color with regard to racism then here's another reality check. The world has always been inhabited by more people of color than not! go figure? And you're correct the real issue is not color or culture. It is an issue of the laws that are in place. No one takes these laws seriously anymore because North America does not uphold them.

its a shame too because nothing will happen to him. They will slap him on the wrist and let him go. An American runs over a 2 yr old licensed or not hes going to jail for some time and getting his drivers right taken away.

Its not soo much racist and discrimination.... which either way I realy dont care. Every single mexican Ive run into is RACIST to me. We are the minority here now. Its a shame people of higher power are to busy on their power trips and enjoying their wealth and dont realy care what were suffering with here.

Aside from that who cares what they think? They came in here illegaly you wanna claim were racist, or being discrimitive so what? you broke the law and your being a leech.

Then don't throw a biased opinion out there as fact, if you cannot waste your time to back it up.

No creditability!
