CAMPANA, Argentina (AFP) South American leaders Tuesday slammed a controversial new immigration law in the US state of Arizona, but stressed they did not hold US President Barack Obama responsible.

The 12-nation UNASUR summit claimed the law could be used to "legitimize racist attitudes" against immigrants to the United States, most of whom are Latin Americans.

Memo to Latin America: shut up you damn hypocrites. If you are so concerned about the Hispanic illegal aliens: why don't your nations take them in or would the idea of being overrun by Mestizos make Argentina, etc. gag?

Why do these illegal alien sympathizers continue to call them "immigrants" anyway? They are nothing but illegal alien lawbreakers. Funny how these Latino countries continue to demonize Americans for enforcing their immigration laws but have no problem doing the same thing.

Because they always enjoy bashing the USA.
And this new law is a very good occasion for doing that.
This is very frustrating but there's nothing we can do about it.

I could be wrong, but to me it seems like an old-fashioned case of just being jealous of the U.S.

Case closed.

You most likely are absolutely right. They don't lake to see strong America.
And when one of the states exercises its right they just can't comprehend it.

They do so on the illegal immigration issue because they know that many of their own countrymen are here sucking us dry and that way they don't have to deal with them. The culture of those countries are very ethnocentric also.

Of course they are slamming the law! How else can they ensure that their unwanted criminal and/or uneducated underclass citizens who've already pressed their way into the US illegally will not return to burden their own economies? The illegals in the US are the hot potato that these countries flung here and they most definitely don't want thrown back to them.
