I am all for the fence. Keep the illegals out. If they want to come to our country they need to do everything the right way. And if they can't afford it I really feel sorry for them. Their government needs to do more for their people cause they really do suffer a lot and I think that is a sad issue in todays society. As in another country. What are these countries doing that their people suffer so much?

Hispanics as a whole are not a majority they are the number 1 minority now since surpassing blacks. Not all Hispanics are Mexican or give a shitt about Mexico. Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California will never again be part of Mexico because Mexico is too f'd up.

Not trying to offend anyone it's just the truth wheather you like it or not.

you better be some White ass, pail skin, fat ugly ass honkey to be making statements like that! If you're a wetback self hating fool of Mexican decent then you should get the fuck out of dodge! I'm a natural born American Citizen yet I have been to Nicaragua, I've been to Honduras and parts of Mexico. I can understand why these people risk everything to come here in search of a better life. The people over there don't have a voice! and if they do they get shot! Open your eyes a little before you go around hating the people who are making the effort and risking everything for a better life!

Finally someone with some sense, i was at walmart the other day and i swear i saw a lady from mexico(i know because of the license plate) changing one kid's diaper in the parking lot while the other ran around screaming, naked, oh also when they left they left the dirty diaper in the parking lot next to a mcdonalds bag full of trash.

I agree 100 percent with USMC23,mexicans do the jobs you white guys can't do which seems to be a lot. They're the ones building this country and the reason they come here is to find opportunitys to provide for their family. America is the land of opportunity and they risk everything to do that.you redneck racists have no clue what life is like for them and if yall lived atleast a week in their shoes,maybe then yall would understand.until then,shut the fuck up

I AGREE WITH YOU EDUCATED MEXICAN. I HAVE ALSO VISITED HONDURAS AND MEXICO AND I CAN FULLY UNDERSTAND WHY THESE PEOPLE RISK EVERYTHING TO COME HERE. THESE PEOPLE WORK SO HARD OVER THERE AND GET PAID VERY LITTLE. THERE IS ALOT OF CORRUPTION AND VIOLENCE AND NO ONE CAN DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT BECAUSE MUCH OF THE POLICE AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE PART OF ALL THIS CORRUPTION AND VIOLENCE. AS FAR AS PEOPLE SAYING THAT THE LATINOS SHOULD COME HERE THE LEGAL WAY, THATS ALLMOST IMPOSSIBLE. I KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE PAID THERE LAWYERS AND TRIED TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR MANY YEARS TO BE APPROVED FOR CITIZENSHIP. THIS MAY SOUND BAD BUT, WE LET THE ARABICS COME HERE SO EASILY B/C WE WANT SOMETHING FROM THEM.THEY ONLY WANT BAD THINGS FOR US. BUT THE LATINOS JUST WANNA WORK AND LIVE HERE IN PEACE AS WE DO. OUR GOVERNMENT IS MESSED UP AND ONE DAY WE WILL NEED OUR LATINO FRIENDS HELP. I HOPE THAT THE RACIST ASSHOLES THAT TALK SHIT ABOUT THEM GET A BIG KICK IN THE ASS AND SUFFER.

Also mexicans or any other immigrant appreciate what little things they have and life more than the average american.We take living in the U.S. For granted and are so spoiled compared to every other country.I personally don't care if any illegal wants to come live in the U.S. It doesn't effect me because I have a good job(papers required).We americans need to look at the big picture and realize that once we stop being racist,narrow minded aholes,we can be a great country again.Until then most countrys will continue to hate us
