It's hilarious to watch the latinos twist his statement to conform to their anti-Mexican racist spin on anything that is said against them.

The bitter truth must be overwhelming to accept about their amigos y familia, but the bitter truth it is, for sure.

Wasn't a small boy killed (run over in a crosswalk) recently by an illegal who had 7 other run-ins with the law?

I'd say the comment made by the commissioner is right on the money.

Don't blame the messenger when the message is true.

Ah, yes, this WAS in North Carolina, so the commissioner's statement was perfectly acceptable.

If the latinos don't like it - LEAVE!

They seem to think that Latinos and/or Hispanics that spout the killing of white people is acceptable though. Hypocrites is what they are.

"Oscar Avila, a 19-year-old pen salesman in Mexico City, struggled to understand James' feelings. He said he's aware of opposition to undocumented workers in the United States but said he had never heard such "strong" comments that compare an entire community to criminals."

Wow, he compared criminals to criminals, how offensive.

"He's just discriminating against the people," said Avila. "He's calling people, who are just trying to make a better life for themselves, narcotraffickers. That's not right."

I thought narcotraffickers were trying to make a better life for themselves also, and like the illegals, they don't care who gets hurt in the process.

""What if you had two girls, 16 and 19 years old, and he called them prostitutes?" asked De Castro. "That's what he did. He said all the women were prostitutes. And all the men were drug dealers. How are you going feel? You're going to be irate.""

If you read English, you know that is not what he said. He said they were common criminals, along with drug dealers and prostitutes. Maybe he should have said it in Spanish amigo.

"Why would I owe someone an apology for telling the truth?" James said. "I think that America needs to get a backbone. We have become a country of wimps. I'm not going to apologize for stating the truth. Period."

I wish Mr. James would run for president!!!

First off they are NOT ILLEGAL "Immigrants" they are ILLEGAL ALIENS.

Bill James deserves a metal for telling the truth about Illegal Aliens. Nothing Bill James said was racist in any way shape or form.
________

Near the end of the talk, Commissioner Norman Mitchell, a Democrat, referenced a recent Observer article that mentioned illegal immigrants paid taxes. James interjected that prostitutes and drug dealers also pay taxes.
"Al Capone paid taxes," Bill James

James said Thursday his comments were meant to show that immigrants, prostitutes and drug dealers all engage in illegal activity.

"You're breaking the law, you need to get right with the law," James said. "It doesn't have anything to do with whether your hair is blond, brown or black. It doesn't matter what your skin color is, your eyes, whatever."

__________

Nope, NO racist remarks in anything Bill James said. NO mention of any race, ethnicity, or Nationality.

Leave it to those who break our laws and support breaking our laws to spin Bill James statements into a lie to suit their agenda. BTW-It is only the Latinos/Hispanics/Mexican's who are spinning this according to the article. Why is that?

The fact is all ILLEGAL aliens are CRIMINALS under the LAW. The fact is ILLEGAL Alien is NOT a race.

Bill James said it best when he said:
"Why would I owe someone an apology for telling the truth?" James said. "I think that America needs to get a backbone. We have become a country of wimps. I'm not going to apologize for stating the truth. Period."

LOL!

Mexico is always pissed.

When Mexico starts practicing responsible national birth control, and supporting their own poor, in their own land, then, and only then will Mexico have some iota of credibility.

As it is, Mexico is a dirty joke on the world stage, one we have heard so many times, it isn't funny any more.

That is true. They are always making a scene and tearing their hair out over something. They seem to be totally incapable of recognizing the fact that the majority of their problems are of their own making, such as having droves of kids that they cannot support. Shouting that the gringo stole their land is somehow supposed to make us feel guilty for their plight.

Maybe so, as it is in a Mexican's "nature" to STEAL.....like Presidente Calderon's top aid this past week.....caught red-handed by the security videos......Hahahahahahaha!!!!

Mexicans continue to prove to us THEIR dishonest "nature" over and over again.....so your embarrassment about them is understandable....if you're a Mexican, it DOES reflect on YOU when you align yourself WITH those criminals.....Viva la migra!!!

If I could push a button and send all 13,000,000 Mexicans back to Mexico in a second, I would probably break my finger from pushing so hard.

This may come as a shock, but Mexico IS practicing responsible birth control, they now only have 2.3 children per woman. Only in the USA are they are out of control having 4.5 children each, mainly because our traitors in office make you pay for it.

Duuuuuuhh...because nobody wants to be targeted? Because nobody trusts some f*ck with a high school diploma who just got hired by the police department? How would you like to be handled by some civilian gorilla with a badge?

Since James made appropriate comments I cannot see where Mexicans should be inflamed. After all the illegals are guilty as charged!
