A lot of them come here willingly, having been promised jobs as waitresses, or hotel maids. Once they get here, they're forced into prostitution. I'd give the underage girls a break, and send them home to their familes. The adult women should be prosecuted though, because even if they were promised a job, they know they're crossing the border illegally, and should know better than to move to a foreign country on the word of a stranger.

For instance, "Carolina," it was named that because the latin word for Charles is "Carolus." Hence, the name "Carolina.

The USA is a Hispanic country? That is the dumbest thing you could say. The USA is a country made up of A LOT of different backgrounds and cultures, from English to French. What are your motives for saying something like that? What kind of sense are you trying to make with what you are saying about "you people" refering to other Americans as Hispanic? I'm black, other people are white, other people are Asian, since when could we not refer to someone as Hispanic?
the USA is formed by the former colonies of Britain, Spain, and France.

The USA is Anglo+Hispanic+French mainly due to its history and culture.

Hispanic is not a race.

Hispania is Espana. Hispanic is someone from Europe (Iberian peninsula) or someone from the former Spanish colonies, and that includes many states of the USA, and Puerto Rico.

So, how is it a Hispanic country? You know what you meant. You wrote your post as if the USA was rooted in Hispanic culture which is completely off. Also, you listed all those state and city names as if to say that meant the US is built on Hispanic culture. I think you are just trying to find a way out of looking like you don't know what you are talking about. You just basically said what I told you. LOL

I'm not the one that needs to be taught about what "Hispanic" is. Or to have you tell me what the USA was formed from. Come on now, you're giving me history lessons when you listed Carolina as a reason for why the US is a "Hispanic country?"

Oh, Edu, where is your link saying that Mexican ancestry is the second largest ancestry amongst US residents at this moment? I'm curious. I posted the lastest official list that I saw available.

Why--are they ALL visiting brothels?

This thread is a part of the walking dead. It should be sent back to the crypt where it belongs.

Did anyone say that Hispanic is a race? No, they didn't. Hispanic is a culture and it is only practiced in larger numbers in the southwest not the entire nation. Our nation in identity is not of the Hispanic culture and our language is not Spanish.
