The most mid boggling thing to me is Mexicans actually have this attitude that they are somehow entitled to what ever it is this country has to offer. Can anyone actually picture Americans demonstrating and protesting in another country against its laws?

It looks like the sign with the red writing is attached to the other one.

However, if this picture is a hoax then we want to get that information out there as soon as possible to clear things up for those circulating the picture already.

We are putting this e-mail alert and picture out there and sending copies to Snopes in the hopes that we can determine who took this picture or who made this picture.

We are also sending this picture to our media list with requests for assistance determining if this picture is authentic or a hoax.
From the link the OP posted. It just seems a little bit fishy to me that's all. I don't see any foreign flags in that pic, besides the people in the picture can be Hispanic U.S citizens for all we know. I'll bet a hundred dollars that the picture has been altered.

More from the link the OP posted.

I was a photographer in the Navy and ran a photo finishing lab after I was discharged.

The cardboard on the lower part of the sign is not the same as that above and the edges(lower one especially) look like an add on to the original.

2nd point, why would the sign maker use a different poster board color
( look at the other signs in that group)?

Some one is stirring the pot and doing a poor job of it.

By the way, I am pro Legal Imigration.

It appears you are only wanting to see that the photo has been altered.

If it's real, the kids a f**** idiot.

But the writing actually looks a little bit odd, and the connection between the two connected signs isn't that consistent. It might be photoshopped

If it's not real, the antis are going too far. It wouldn't be the first hoax meant to incite anger.

It also seems just a little too perfect along the lines of anti-illegal rhetoric. This is more like what antis say about illegals, than what even the most radical of pro-reform poeple would say.

I know better than to believe the viral emails being circulated by the so called anti-illegal crowd. They are always proven to be wrong over and over again.

Btw, ANY observant person would notice instantly that the picture has been altered.

There is no proof the picture has been altered.

Blacknight is infamous of his support for those here illegally - hence his comments are, in and of themselves, suspect.

Regardless, the attitude portrayed in the photos is genuine IMO
