Not really undestanding this "Mexican Pride" thing, if his dad came over the US, after having been deported multiple times, please remind me what there actually is for them to be proud of? a nation tht obviously did nothing for them, yet he still clings to that nonsense?

It is rather strange, this 'brown pride' thing, if people walked around with 'white pride' tattooed onto their arms, they'd be labeled racist.

I'm a huge MMA fan and can't wait to see this mex get his faced tatooed by a good American fighter. I'll be jumping up and down like it was the super bowl. Right now, the ufc is setting him up only with old fighers and lower end fighters they know he can beat so they can increase their mex viwership. When he fights a real fighter though, I get to see him sliced and diced all over his brown pride tattoo. Tito Ortiz brings the mex flag in the ring all the time and I loved to see him get demolished by real American fighters. That mex flag went out with his red substance all over it just like mex cain's tatoo will. CAN'T WAIT!

His family has a house on a "rancho" back in Mexico built with the money they made in our country. This is the typical attitude of the illegal immigrants and many of their children that were born on this side of the border, making them "American citizens."
There is one television commentator that writes about the problemns that the illegal immigrants cause Americans:

Yeah, the system that we have is set up to facilitate illegal immigrants in realizing their dreams in this country, and it's
stacked against the American taxpayers. From the moment they set foot on our land, they have all sorts of organizations set up to help them succeed (church, civic, even governmental offices), what then is the downside for them?

Their old argument about being hard working, and doing jobs that Americans won't do is as stupid today as it was last year.

They might live 10 people in a 2 bedroom apartment here, but they consider that to be a temporary inconvenience, as their money heads south, and they can afford to build their dream homes in Mexico, with non-taxed US dollars, I take it as Mexico's money laundering American dollars that should be circulating in THIS country, or highly taxed before they are remitted to Mexico.

Taking into account that they educate their kids HERE, that's another expense they don't have to bear, even if their kids come with them, and not actually born in the US, we STILL educate their kids for free, and the anchor babies get even college costs covered, all without paying taxes.

Under those circumstances, who wouldn't be able to save for a house?

That's not even touching on the healthcare costs that they are quite able to avoid having to pay.

All told, the Mexican government has a pretty good set up, they have citizens living in the US, contributing to Mexico's economy in high numbers. They then have the audacity, the unmitigated gall, to dictate to Americans what we should and shouldn't accept?

Before his fights they always show a sob story about his illegal mex father illegally entering our country and illegally living and working to save his tax free money, while I'm wishing that the rattle snake and cougar population would have gotten to him before he made his way here? Watching him get knocked the 'F' out, over and over, is going to be a beautiful thing indeed!

What if Brock Lesnar had "White Power" tattooed on his chest? So why is it any different for Cain Velasquez?

Cain Velasquez should be repatriated to Mexico. He doesn't even speak English; not out of ignorance, out of blatant disrespect.

If an illegal is deported and then re-enters the US, that is a felony. Why wasn't his father locked up? How was he able to enter seven times with no real punishment?

Why isn't he proud of being an American? Why doesn't he have "American Pride" tattooed on his chest?

Wow ive never heard that much bullshit come out of a persons mouth before. Hes proud of how hard his dad worked to give him a better life and maybe if u looked at it from his point of view u would understand. But theres alot of ignorant and stupid ass people but what can i say thats how the world is. And whats this we bullshit you are not the voice for every other american in this country people like you give americans a bad name. Why dont you just do us all a favor and go back to europe where your ancestors crossed the fuckin sea to get here from.

I think it is his body and he can tattoo whatever he wants. Just saying.
I'm of Mexican heritage. My parents are from Mexico. I really could give a rats a** about Mexico. It's never done anything for me and my parents agree. But, we were from there so there is some sense of pride for Mexico. Although you will NEVER see me wave Mexican flag. I rather wave an American flag just because it has done a lot more for me and for my family. I grateful for the opportunity to live in America. I understand everyone's point. But please don't judge all Mexican/Americans for a couple people's ignorance. I'm ashamed sometimes too..but understand that there is dumba**es in every race. Some more than others, yes.
