With almost 4,000,000 citizens of Mexican American descent what makes you assume that these protesters are illegal?

Why would ANY legal US Citizen support people who come here illegally and take what they have no right to take and demand what they haven't worked to earn? A person would have to be extremely ignorant or illegal themselves IMO.

On St Patrick's millions of me and my people waive Irish flags all across major cities in the Northeast and Midwest. Does that bother you too?

They're ALL illegals to "THEM"

If you are brown and in the US, you must be here illegally

Remember a few years ago when these groups went around the crowd trying to get the people to take down their Mexican flag and fly the American flag?

Not all do support this issue.

In my opinion, illegal or supporting those who are illegal is a very blurry line. That has nothing to do with skin color despite what most pro-illegal people would like to lead everyone to believe because when you're on the wrong side of the law crying about racism is always the best option.

What a freaking joke already


Respect their 1st amendment rights to protest, OK fine... but if any one of them starts stirring up violence, I say shoot them on the spot.

Enough is enough with this garbage. We are talking about people being here ILLEGALLY! What is so hard to understand about that? I understand the point they are making about racial profiling, however it is incorrect and ignorant. The bill clearly states that noone can be asked to show identification unless there is reasonable suspicion. I also understand that the pro-illegal immigration crowd doesn't know where to draw the line there with "reasonable suspicion". These rules will be laid out in detail... cops are already being trained as we speak about this.

So really, unless you look like you just crossed the border, you have nothing to worry about. Worst case scenario is, YOU SHOW YOUR FREAKING ID!

Ever gone to an airport before? We ALL have to be discriminated against by the TSA... and you know what? I don't give a rats ass.

These people should be ignored for being ridiculous about a common sense bill.
