<quoted text>Mexico does not want Americas military in Mexico. Not even the illegals that march in Americas streets want us there . They would consider that an act of war. And for some reason America is cowardly toward Mexico even though We defeated them before.
Ok Marijuana isn't legalized in America becauseeeeeeeee.. It's the Cartel's money.. It's their business.. it's their TRADE if you will.. NOT LEGALIZED HERE.. Because the AMERICAN GOVERNMENT is terrified of the cartel as are citizens..of Mexico.. and even the Mexican government lies in bed with the Cartel.. but it's no different from what's going on in America.. with the Rockefellers..and the Illuminati...

That's why it's important for us as citizens of the AMERICAS to band together.. and overthrow our own governments.. and create our own unity.. before they all have us at civil war in fear of the leviathan.. LOOK AROUND YOU.. it's what they're encouraging!!

Blacks displace themselves. They've been living in the US for many generations. Here in the US English is their first language. They had better opportunities to go to school, get and education, and move in life. Why haven't they? The illegal immigrants didn't do it to them. They did it to themselves, or if you must, the White man did it to them. Stop blaming the illegals.
BTW, the factories back East can hire whomever they want! It's "at will employment." They can hire and fire whomever and whenever they want.
So explain to me, why would they hire illegals over Blacks?
Utter nonsense! Many jobs that blacks use to hold have been taken over by illegal aliens the same goes for our white blue-collared workforce also. Illegals are blameless? Did someone drag them over the border and insist they work here illegally? WTH is wrong with you? There are three parties to blame here one is our government, the greedy employers AND the illegals themselves. They aren't mindless children that have no sense of the law nor right or wrong!

No, factories back east cannot lawfully hire illegal aliens. Are you nuts? These greedy employer's bottom line is their profit margin and illegals increase that for them. It's really that simple. Learn something! You apparently don't give a damn about the Americans that have lost their jobs to illegal aliens. The illegals who take those jobs are just as guilty as those who hire them.

'Illegals' have better work ethics and aren't lazy. I've done construction.. I have seen 'illegals' come up on jobs sites looking for the contractor and giving a bid.. I have seen NO white people do that.. and absolutely NO black people do that.. To hear that 'illegals' took construction jobs from Americans.. pisses me off.. They aren't lazy.. like some people.. and they're willing to do the jobs no one else wants to... and trust me I witness this also.. both my father and step father were/are construction workers.. but rather than going out and looking for jobs.. placing bids.. they either think they should get paid by the BOARD and not by the hour or by the job like they're better than above minimum wage.. work is work.. some money is better than no money.. so they sit at home watch tv and blame illegals for their inability to find work.. I'm tired of it..

I really am...

They don't pay taxes now why would they want to start??? The ER is their medical. Did you ever think they go to Mexico to go to the doctor . But a babies birth is donr here free.( your tax dollars). cant let the Emergency birth not be don't the mother or baby might die. But they not have money. LOL!!!!! It went to Mexico bank/ family . Getting legal would be stupid.

Cheaper to hire illegals . they are not going to whine to the public about work mistreating them . they will just fire them and hire another illegal . what are they going to do??? Call Ice and whine I lost my job. Deportation !!!!!!!!!! Blacks have civil rights a company could get sued and sued and sued again . Illegals wont risk deportation . Mexicans that want to get ahead in America will learn English anywhere they can, but resent it. peck Spanish as much as they can. Blacks have education how many work the fields now?? Yes we did it to ourselves blacks and whites and ??? by not enforcing our borders and deporting , they are here. They are not supposed to hire illegals it is againest federal law . if they ever enforce it.

I don't know the Whites and Spanish didn't wipe out all the people here. Even found a cure for the sickness that they spread and gave that to them. still do. Santa Anna and his men were spared. America marched on Mexico City and gave it back. we have not mined the border or had mass shootings. I'd say America is a bunch of wimps.

If the gov takes the kid into foster care why???? its not Americas kid they belong with their mother in their mothers home country. think before you marry . about kids and being deported . find out if they are illegal asap. before you get knocked up. If you knew you were going to have kids with a man and the lids would be born with two heads and three arms would you still want to have kids with that man??? Every time you go to bed with a man you might get pregnaut . wouldn't you like to know if he has exs , a drug problem, if hes illegal , or a con man etc .

You're so full of sheeet! I guess that makes Hispanic citizens lazy a**es also then since they aren't illegals? Illegals are willing to bust their butts simply because they are desperate and don't want to get deported. They don't have any better work ethics than anyone else. You are so full of hatred for Americans and especially white Americans that you need to see a counselor!

And I am tired of the BS that Americans should work for less than a fair wage or they get called lazy by you anti-American POS! You're totally clueless. Illegals have stolen just about every blue-collard job they could get their hands on by working for less. It's that simple not your BS made up stories. You make me sick! You simply cannot be a citizen yourself. Even the most hard core pro-illegals don't spout as many lies and hate as you do!

Stop with the "gringo" BS! I'm not calling you a "beaner" am I? What an assine remark to make! You don't know me so why would you make such a hateful statement? You're getting desperate now and acting like a juvenile. Typical illegal sympathizer. Just can't debate with civility as you have no viable arguments for your anti-American views.

thats right!!!!! but you still can't tell antone your mistreated . And you will never get a raise . Always min wage maybe less. I only care that an illegal is making money and a legal , even a legal Mexican / Latino is not . I hope no one ever hires you again . And you cant get welfare . We'll have to come up with a greater punishment for when people like you are caught .
