Little do these pro-illegal ethnocentrics know that the majority of both blacks and whites do not agree with their agenda. I just laugh when I hear that they think just because Obama is black (but also half white) that he would automatically side with them as a minority.

On this issue, Obama has been better than Bush or McCain would have been -- why are the illegals so self-centered? Americans are facing hard times, the unemployment rate in the USA is significantly higher than the unemployment rate in Mexico and how do they expect they should bring in their extended families when there aren't jobs? Yes, we know, they expect lots of government help like Medicaid, food stamps, WIC and housing assistance.

Americans should not be living in tents and homeless shelters while illegal foreign citizens live high on the hog in government housing.
