Mexicans have been in North America 200 years before your ancestors immigrated here. What makes you more entitled to the liberty of the land than those whom the lands were stolen from? Did you think Texas and the Southwest States were barren lands with no life before Europeans settled there?

Most people realize that we need to seal the border and eliminate birth right citizenship policies. The next step is to deal with the 20+ million illegal aliens already here by enforcing the laws and making life miserable for them here. The claim is that illegal aliens come here for a better life so the obvious solution is to assure that they cannot find a better life here. All of that is common sense. Sadly that is one of the many qualities lacking in the leaders of both parties.

Unlike you racists, the rest of us have nothing to fear from a hispanic majority.

Actually the GOPasaurs fully supported your idea of "making life miserable for them here". How'd that work out for them in the last election?

mexicans don't like lib/dem/queers either, in case you fall into any of those categories.

Actually a majority of hispanics support marriage equality, just like all other Americans.

I love this post. There is nothing you could write that would better define you as a hypocrite.
You make it clear again and again, that you don't have a racist bone in your body. You love foreigners and you have no problem at all with Mexicans. It is only those illegal ones that you hate. You are such a stickler for law and order that you simply can not tolerate anybody breaking any law at any time for any reason. It does not matter that it is a minor civil infraction. Respect for the law is absolute in your world. No exceptions.
Unless of course we are talking about your total disregard for a Constitutional Amendment. In that case the letter of the law is not so important. It is perfectly fine to dismiss the Constitution if you do not happen to agree with it.
What Constitutional amendment are you talking about? There is nothing in the Constitution of the United States or any of the amendments that forbids defending the border, enforcing immigration laws or granting automatic citizenship to the children of illegal aliens.

Like I said common sense is in short supply in Washington. Since when has the federal government ever done anything the easiest, most practical, cheapest, and fairest way? We have tried granting amnesty and that has not worked. So why not actually try enforcing the law?

Your act is just boring at this point. You were ranting about birthright citizenship. Stop changing the subject every time you get called on your bullshit.

Actually before 1910 there was no such thing as a the contry of Mexico or a Mexican citizen so it would be impossible for a Mexican to be in North America before any of my ancestors.

Actually the 14th amendment grants citizenship to ALL persons born in the United States, regardless of whether their parents are here illegally.

Ummm, because NEITHER side wants the law enforced. The Dems want the additional voters amnesty will bring, and the GOPasaurs want the cheap labor a steady flow of illegal immigrants provides.

NEITHER side has ANY motivation to actually close the borders or enforce our laws.

The border could be 100% sealed in 30 days, but we don't have the political will to do it.

This is interesting. You are so opposed to birthright citizenship I assumed you were a Naturalized Citizen who put in some effort and even had to pass a test. Now it turns out you did indeed receive your citizenship by having the good fortune to be born here without doing anything to earn it. Hmm.

By the way it is a good thing you did not have to take a test. History is not your strong suit. Mexico declared it's independence in 1810. Not 1910.
