it would be better to keep the conversation free of idiotic generalizations(like the ones about "mexican culchur" and "ppl").
I know for a fact that many Hispanics do not support illegal immigration. However, the fact that groups that purport to represent “Hispanics” are threatening to vote against any politician who supports border security, enforcement of immigration laws, and deportations, doesn’t help the image of Hispanics in general.

The illegals hide in the homes of judges? State legislators? Oh they hide in the closets in fed court houses. Judges sneak them food between trials.
Okay I stand corrected.
Its not family members or friends who provide shelter, feed and find them jobs when they first arrive.

It doesn't for the most part but that doesn't stop the pro-illegals from hurling unfounded insults anyway. The one that really cracks me up is calling any anti-illegal a "xenophobic" when that means a fear of strangers. We have just about every race and ethnicity living in this country and have since its founding so who the hell is xenophobic and what does that have to do with ILLEGAL immigration?

And don't forget the countless groups and organizations, including La Raza and LULAC and MALDEF waiting in the wings to help run interference for anyone in THEIR race.

That's a typical response from the "guilty white liberals who would prefer to ignore the rule of law and sit singing kum-hay-ah while saving the whales and reading saul alinsky...And of course, the race card is the only arguement left in the deck for the racist ANGLOPHOBIC race baiters.....

Of course, this is only my opinion.
