No, I want to break you down until you realize YOU are not pure blood either.. This land is full of immigration.. and to say that the only people who could immigrate here were the ones who have already is hypocrisy! What if your ancestors didn't come.. where would you be? What if they didn't make the voyage to the AmericaSSSSSSSSS (North and South).. Where would you be? Or what if.. people from Ireland didn't work in sweat shops.. WHERE WOULD YOU BE? Or if the Spanish people didn't come.. or the jews..Titanic is a good movie.. even though a lot of them died.. a lot of them made it here didn't they? WHERE WOULD YOU BE? It took your ancestors looking ahead to start and build a better future for your ungrateful ass.. and THAT'S WHAT THE PEOPLE FROM SOUTH AMERICA are trying to do.. HOW can you FAULT them.. HOW can you not be touched with a bit of humility? I'd want them all here.. I'll tell you why too.. OUR GOVERNMENT OWNS OUR AMERICA at the moment..
At least with people from South America here.. we'd stand a fighting chance against them when the time comes.. to overthrow the government... for tyranny.. the same things YOUR ancestors left ENGLAND on account of.... God what would the founding fathers say about the tax rates nowadays? WOULD THEY EVEN STAND FOR IT?!?!?! No.. but you make what they said in vain anything... we allow the government to control everything.. huh? No!
I'm trying to make sense of your gibberish, but I give up....not worth it besides you are boring, LOL!

As far as I'm concerned, all illegal aliens can have the American Dream -- all $17 trillion of it!

"His village consists of a few dozen homes six hours' walking distance from the nearest telephone."

Blame this on your leaders, i bet they have a few thousand phones where they live. Mexicans come here and put up the front that Mexican Indians care about each other so much, BS!

Too bad this guy will end up in the country where he was born in.

True. It never stops amazing me that illegal aliens never blame their country and instead blame the USA for not giving them citizenship. I mean, HUH? Where's the common sense?

Maybe what they lack in Mexico is a funcitoning, well-oiled protest group. Hmmm. Maybe we should ship the NCLR there, where they can really of be of use to Latinos rights.

Apparently Carlos Slim, the richest man in the world, who holds the telephone monopoly in Mexico didn't get the memo that his fellow Mexicans don't all have access to telephones.

LOL, FYI, the 'Obamaphone' is provided by Slim's company, so if it's good enough for the US, it should be good enough for them.

Well, obviously Carlos Slim did, any moron who thinks they're entitled to "freebies" at taxpayer expense got one, some people even got multiples. This is just one entitlement program that needs to disappear. One of the problems we've got with illegal immigrants is that they think once they make it to the US, their rich Uncle Sam will take care of them. Try telling these simpletons that "Uncle Sam" is actually the American taxpayer, they don't understand.

Goodness, all of these negative judge-its on everyone's posts, reminds me of a child who got ahold of some stickers and stuck them on the kitchen table.
