The fact basically all illegal Mexicans look dirty, have jet black hair and brown eyes, does not help Americans disliking them. Humans are visual creatures. People don't want to see ugly things.
So you think Mexican illegal aliens look dirty? And you think Mexican illegal aliens are ugly things?

If women who looked like that flooded the country, no one in the country would complain. No one. In fact, many would see it as desirable.
Yeah, I'm sure nobody would complain about them committing ID theft, document fraud, Social Security fraud, employment "I-9 Form" fraud/perjury, income tax evasion, conspiracy to violate immigration laws, welfare fraud, food stamp fraud, driving without a license or insurance, driving drunk, taking jobs away from Americans, driving down wages in various job fields, not to mention the more serious crimes such as murder, child molestation, armed robbery, burglary, car theft, etc.

Add to this the costs of hundreds of billions of dollars in providing various types of social services to them.

This is precisely the despicable mindset of some anti-illegals that fuels the racism rhetoric from pros.

<<So people with white skin are not illegal? But people with Brown skin are....I see>>

Where did you read that? From what I've read on this thread, people are saying hair, eye, and skin color make no difference. If a person is an illegal alien, they don't belong here.

Is your question really "What if all Illegal Mexicans were Illegal Swedes?" The question you need to ask is "Would you,La Raza and all the pro-illegals would really care?Would you be upset over our immigration laws then?Ill tell you what Sweden's population generally had a higher degree of education and affluence.So the impact of imaginary illegal Swedes would be far less,last I checked Sweden did not have the rampant political corruption and drug trade that Mexico does,most Swedes don't have the extra large families that illegals have so thir would definitely be less anchor babies.Also most of their big cities are not blighted with graffiti all over the place.You need to ask yourselves why you asked that question.

Sarcasm is my downfall. I was raised in a family of sarcastics, where it was looked at as an art form. It doesn't always translate well..(as my own wife could tell you, if you asked).

I'll try to watch myself...

You read my mind! That is the question to be posed. Of course we already know the answer.

Are you suggesting some illegals are more or less desirable than others.

This has nothing to do with discrimination against a particular group but discrimination against all foreign invaders who have not abided by our immigration laws. Most anti-illegals object to illegal immigration based on many valid factors.
I don't have such a link.but I can assure you such was the case. Not only were there lots of Irish illegals, they were also looked at as almost totally unassimilable. "every bit as alien to American society as the Chinese", and regularly depicted in cartoons in some VERY respectable publications as bumbling, combative 'apes'...tiny derby on their head, a rosary around their neck, a jug of whiskey in one hand, and a billy club in the other. Irish 'paddies' are the root of the term "paddy wagon"...and at least one study in the 1870's named ethnic Irish in New York City as the group MOST prone to males deserting their families.

Not saying for one minute that because it was all right THEN to have this going on in our society, that it's all right NOW..times change, etc etc. But the Irish were VERY MUCH the 'undesirables' of an earlier time..back when people were free to express their disgust. You may also know that a large number of Irish conscripts in the US Army, fed up with the treatment they recieved from their 'anglo' officers during thr War with Mexico, defected to the Mexican side, where today they are honored as heroes (the "San Patricios" of Mexican history).

Of COURSE it was more difficult to 'sail in' as an illegal than to 'walk in'...but there were a considerable no of Irish illegals at one time.

Rumor here in Calif is that there are STILL a number of illegal Irish...mostly in San Francisco and in Santa Monica...several tens of thousands, I understand.

Did Irish illegals ever exist on a scale comparable to today's Latin American illegals? No, of course not. Today's situation is largely unprecedented in sheer numbers, as well as in scale.
