What an ass. I would love to meet you in person, boy. I mean I would really enjoy what I will do to you. I hate racists. I like to hurt them. Run... won't help. Cry... I won't care. Beg... so what? LOL!!!
Guess what, boy. I was born in the USA. I am far better educated than you and speak several languages better than you speak English.
Got some jokes about that, boy? You worthless piece of drek.
Now spew some more bigotry from behind your computer, coward boy.
And don't forget to go slap whoever raised you for raising such an a$$hole.
I may be wrong here buddy but I don't see the 'racism' in quoting facts. If the truth hurts fix it - seek counseling, I suppose.

HCDP: Stop the Hypocrisy!
The local Democratic Party called out the Republicans on their latest hypocrisy. Here’s something I support and think you should contribute today! Let’s get that Latino Vote out!
Dear Fellow Democrat,
This past weekend the Texas Republican Party adopted their official party platform, demanding, among other blatantly anti-Latino provisions, a law making “American English the official language of Texas and the United States,” declaring,“we have room for but one language here and that is the English language; one nation, one language,” and insisting that bilingual education be discontinued in public school.
Then, the very next day, they released a new campaign video entirely in Spanish, urging Hispanic voters to support the GOP!
This hypocrisy cannot be allowed to continue. And the hateful anti-Latino programs the Republicans want to implement cannot be allowed to pass. Help us counter this blatant hypocrisy today by donating $20 to the Harris County Democratic Party’s Coordinated Campaign!
The Latino vote is crucial in this year’s election. The GOP will stop at nothing in this election — even violating their own party’s demand for “English only.” We must have the resources to counter this duplicity and show Hispanic voters the Republican Party does not stand with them, but rather, against them. Click here to contribute $20 or more to Coordinated Campaign today to expose these mean-spirited, anti-immigration, anti-Latino Republicans for what they really are!
We need to be able to communicate exactly what Republicans stand for, as embodied in their party platform. Will you stand with the Coordinated Campaign by donating $20 or more to fight back and let people know what the Republicans are really all about?

Mayela, what is needed in our country are people whom are willing to assimiliate and become a part of America. One thing that has been common for Americans for 100s of years is our language. No one is stating that Latinos can not 'speak' Spanish amongst themselves, etc.; owever, what is needed are connections and those who want to be here should have absolutely NO problem learning the language that has been used in this country for 100s of years as a binding of its citizens.
What we do not nee, Mayela, are 100s of fifferent pots all brewing amongst themselves. America is classically ccalled the melting pot...the..melting pot. Immigrants that come here, legally, do so with pride and hold their citizenship (once earned) as something of pride (partly because they had to EARN citizenship not attempt to steal citizenship and/or legal status). Legal immigrants have no problem learning the language custome to our country.
For those who have a problem with being a part of the melting pot...THE...melting pot...well, it safe to say they should not be here as they do not belong here, accordingly.

<quoted text>mexicos culture is for old men to rape and then maybe marry a little girl. It is called Rapo look it up . They try that here and get arrested and have to e told why they are clueless. Legal or illegal but it easier to catch them if they are legal . but America still does not need more of that here .
Your thesis is that Mexicans are child molesters and so should not be here? LOL!!! According to the white-haters in here, you crakkkos are the child molesters.

From what I can see, all 3 groups are child molesters.

This is simply racism. Mexicans are no more morally reprehensible than white or black Yanks. What we don't need here is bigotry such as yours.

Wrong. The English language did not ever exist as a uniform language holding the country together.

The Southwest was speaking Spanish long before any English speakers were in the East. It has been spoken continuously here for centuries. I speak it here, and I'm not even from here, but I encounter as in California a large population which understands Castilian. Good.

There are probably 40 million Castilian speakers in the USA. I am one of them. This has gone on since De Soto and Coronado, and will continue.

The situation of Mexicans is not analogous to the immigrants who came in through Ellis Island or on a boat from Asia. Mexico was already here.

Mexican paraphrase of Malcolm X:“We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us!”

The immigrants here now, illegally, have every right to stay. USA corporations are the primary cause of them having to leave Mexico for economic reasons in the first place. USA corporations wanted them to lose their farms and slave in sweatshops, so now they're here. Good for them. Bienvenidos.

I prefer to have them in this country than bigots like you. Why don't you move somewhere else?

RACIST??? I'm sorry would you please inform me of what 'race' illegal immigration/amnesty is and from which country they hail??
This is not a race issue, this is an illegal invasion issue that equates to beyond an invasion.
No, it's the same old racism. All the same hysteria was expressed by the old “Nativists” against Irish and other immigrants, though they were coming in legally! It's the same old crap. Bigotry, racism, by any other name it stinks as foully.

An “invasion”. Nice terminology. Yeah, usually when a country is invaded, the invaders immediately seek employment washing dishes and picking lettuce. Get a grip on reality please.

“Beyond an invasion”, lol. Why, are they spreading the Plague as well? No, they are not... shut up.

What's racist about wanting our immigration laws respected and enforced? Who's anti-"immigrant"?
Very simplistic. What's good about Yanks remaining so uninformed about what goes on in the world, and thinking in cliches?

What is the situation making people migrate? They don't come here attracted by wealth. They're repelled by poverty in Mexico. That's how it works. Why is Mexico so poor and screwed up? Govt dominated by USA interests. USA corporations dominate the economy. Mexican ultra-rich elites naturally want nothing to change. Et voilà... someone displaced from their farm or shop is over the border with a leafblower. And THAT is the person you resent? Not the USA corporate elites? Not the billionaire Mexican elites? Not the corrupt USA govt bought off and doing the corporate bidding?

No, you want to stomp on the weakest people in the whole interaction. Muy bravo, and that doesn't mean “brave”.

What are you sputtering about, Bob? You make no coherent point, just bits of disjointed cliches you heard at your last Minuteman meeting.

And, moron, I live in NM around nearly half Mexicans, and I tend to go where they are instead of whites, so it's almost like Mexico!¡Qué bonito!

I lived half my life in California. So what is your point. Often in CA I could go for days without having to speak English.¡Qué bonito!

You're a racist turd, bob.

<quoted text>lots mor Mexicns living in Mexico then here In the US. Once again "Why are you not with them"? your people your ways . sorry this is still america a different country then Mexico. Is that why you like it ? Not run by Mexicans ??? not corrupt like Mexico??? You think mexicans did that ??? Our state government locks up and deports illegals . Our laws protect citizens and legals even from mexico . illegals mostly left a long time ago or will some day be rounded up by our police and deported. I know lots of legal mexicans that have no desire to take over America . We get along great . this was northern mexico for about 20 years after the Spanish down sized the native Americans Then left. texas fought to wrich itself from that nasty Santa anna and mexican rule . we have but one country and one people and one President and mexico is not it .Is that why you are here defending mexico ??? And not in mexico??? Dude , your in the wrong country . Perhaps you should spend some time in mexico and you will see the difference. Feel free to stay there if you like .
Wrong. Again I must repeat history. Mexican people and culture are in the USA and were before it was the USA. You want to tell Mexicans to go home, but they are home here... more than you are. You're the illegal alien, Pilgrim!

They were Mexicans here for more than 20 years, chump. You can make excuses all day, but it's stolen land, they were here first, you're the interloper, so speak Spanish or shut up!

LOL!!! That is part of your angst...you gringos who couldn't pass Spanish class. How pathetic. All over the world people are multilingual but you cry over having to learn Spanish.

Please feel free to not tell me what to do, boy. Your racism is not tolerated... only online do you cowardly get away with it.

Your despise of the nextdoor country is despicable. You are one of the “Ugly AmeriKKKans” who give the USA a bad name. Un gringo salado, de veras.

You're wasting your time. Those immigrants are staying. And you opposing them accomplishes nothing. How do you like the job market? What's left after outsourcing... a lot of “at will” employment. The bosses have busted Unions and are engaging in all the usual tactics against the workers.“Productive minutes”---bosstalk for “speedup”.

Immigrants aren't doing this to you. The bosses are.

Whats funny is the illegals want the help of the blacks for civil rights , because they try to say that they are treated like the blacks were . Most blacks just laugh at them . when were illegals ever kidnapped in the middle of the night , beaten, fed scraps, made to breed for more, forced labor for no pay , forced to use different restrooms , different schools , etc???
