Hispanics are not the only people who abuse their own people for money. ALL races do!! I am sure if you sat down and was truly honest with yourself you will find usery in ALL races when it comes to "their" own people for money. You have whites here in the united states who are using their own women as sex slaves and prostitutes for money. Escort services, etc. You have corporations using their own people for money. Insurance companies, etc. So it's all the very same thing. If you deny such you are in a deep rooted denial. You are being used for money right now by your very own people. Think about it.

Let's be realistic here.

Take those millions in aid the US is sending to Pakistani flood victims and use it to strengthen and secure our own country's borders in hopes of preventing scenarios such as this from happening. Drug cartels and their violence are on the same level with Al Quaida-terrorists-and they are in our backyard and a bigger threat. Take care of your own, US, before you take care of others, particularly a country whose residents laughed, cheered and danced in the streets when they heard of 9/11.

So you equate 'corporations using their own people for money' ie voluntary employment, with human smugglers holding women and children against their will ie kidnapping, to extort money from their families??

This has to be the most idiotic, ridiculous post ever, obviously from a flaming dumb@zz sh*t for brains 'progressive'.

What the heck! it is strawberry season. Who is going to pick those things not Americans. Send them all back and lets see how well california does without the hispanic. It will be tough at first but little by little Americans will fill those jobs. Hire the hispanic to build more fence at the border, but as they build they must be on the mexico side.

Yes, it happens in all 'races', and societies, but there is a huge range in frequency and severity. Kidnapping occurs here, but it is not so routine and frequent that people have to hire armed guards and live in fortified compounds. Abuse of people occurs here but it is not institutionalized, aided and abetted by a corrupt government and police. Rape occurs here, but underage girls are not routinely snatched, tortured, gang raped and killed. Gang murders occur here, but the victims are not decapitated and their bodies dissolved in barrels of acid. We have some police corruption here, but it is not endemic and trademark of a thoroughly corrupt society.

Granted, drug cartels and gangs are now here, in fact in 2500 American cities according to an LA Times article, so we may become much more like our southern neighbors.

'it happens in all races...', so let's not be critical, right? The moral equivalency you express is laughable, at best.

Believe me,we like or not, that money in Pakistan is very well used. We must to keep Pakistan in our side, because their position in the region is strategically important. Besides we better be careful because their advanced nuclear power program is quiet scary.

You need to get real with yourself. All races use their own for money in one form or the other. Yes all races kidnap their own and extort money from their own. You have not heard of white sex slavery and smuggling?

Your post is full of denial. It happens is ALL RACES. Take your blinders off. I know it may burn your eyes to see all doing such things. It is there.

The dumba$$ is you for not seeing the same fault with your own.

I also recall wealthy caucasian homes holding their non caucasian help hostage in their homes and threatening them with deportation if they did not work for little to no pay and even physically abusing them. Those stories also hit the news. So let's get off this holy kick.

IT HAPPENS IN ALL RACES!!

Americans did all the farming in the United States until the mexican aliens took away all the farming jobs. I dont know why mexicans think we cant servive without them. Americans would love to have the farming jobs back, to make extra money to pay their way thrugh school and numerous other means. Its all seasonal work and their are enough Americans to fill those jobs. I use to pick grapes and sweet potatoes when I was 12 years old, then the illegal aliens came and I had no way to make extra money. Everyone loses to an illegal alien. Im 53 years old and those stinkin wetbacks have taken my high paying construction job away. Im so fed up with illegal alien mexican scum that I would rather see them obliterated. They cant, after all these years undertstand there is no demand for their services. There are plenty of Americans that will do the jobs these mexicans took away from us. All in all, mexicans are the worst farmers. Americans can farm better. They had nothing to do with are great reputation as farmers in the heartland during the day. Our government said mexicans are only doing jobs Americans wont do. That is a myth. Its a lie. And its what they want everyone to believe so they can exploit and get money from employers and votes. Politicians and employers are the ones and only the ones who are guilty of corrupting and making the country what it is today. Even our militias are on alert. A health care that nobody supported that was pushed on us and the muslim mosque and illegal aliens along with wars that most do not support. This has got people very angree. Enough is enough. November is comming real fast. So be prepared to be brainwashed by all politicians who will do and say anything for a vote. If I can add one more thing, if mexicans are such great farmers why are they not farming in their own country??????? I guess that really makes them mad as hell when they hear stuff like that. They destroyed their country like they are doing to us. The problems we face today came from illegal aliens. Deportation is not the way. By hanging employers who hire illegal aliens and by making them pay fines and a few years in prison, the illegal aliens will all return back to their own country. Politicians again want you to believe its impossible to get rid of them. Not true. They will leave or starve.
