Really, why don't they register? They post enough (mostly garbage though.) So why don't they register?
All registered posters should just ignore unregistered trolls.

I jump for joy every time an illegal becomes legal. Its proof that your way is just a dream.

Welcome to the United Hispanic States of America. First Mexico will fully influence the southwest and then we'll have Puerto Rico as a 51st State influence the east.

We will block off all trade routes for your supplies and then force your grandkids to Speak Spanish.

Long gone are the days of angry old white men. We will have STK orders in effect.

I may have to agree with him. I haven't researched it, but I don't believe there were any immigration laws when the constitution was developed.
To my knowledge, it wasn't until past the late 1800s that immigration really became an issue. Some of the very first immigration laws were aimed at the southern Europeans. The eugenicists were the main ones enforcing those immigration laws.
In 1790, Congress enacted rules stating that any free white person could apply for citizenship after having lived in this country for two years.

In other words any white person that wasn't indentured.

Interesting, any white person could just swim over, sneak into the country, live here for two years and apply for instant citizenship. That's amazing!
Yep, I found it to be as well.

Mexicans were considered white until sometime in the early 1900s. Then it was decided that they had 'too much Indian' and could no longer be considered white.
When some Hispanics were arrested for committing crimes, they were erroneously listed as being white, which would skew the crime stats of ethnicities, don't you agree?

You see this is how it works.
If you're a Hispanic achiever and look white, they just give you an Anglicized name.
If you're a Hispanic loser and look white, they make it a point to emphasize that you're Hispanic.
Remember Martin Zimmerman? Well, the media made certain that the public found out that Zimmerman's mother is Hispanic. So despite his 'Zimmerman' name, the world knows his mother is Hispanic! There really are threads about that in these forums.
<quoted text>
I think it is more than a possiblity, I think it's a probability. Frankly, the ethnicity of Zimmerman's mom was irrelevant to the story, and the media just likes to lure viewers into their web of deceptions with sensationalism and inconsequential details. Kind of like the way they costanntly cover up the messes BO keeps propogating.

Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution says this

Section. 9.

The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.

Here are the demographics projections for 2050:
http://www.childstats.gov/americaschildren/de...
Scroll down to the last graph.

This is what is says:
non-Hispanic Whites - declining, will be less than 40%
Hispanics - increasing, will be more than 40%
Blacks - slight decline, will be less than 20%
Asians - slight increase, will be less than 20%

So there you have it Mr. Taxpayer Cricket, if you don't like the future start packing your bags and securing your one-way ticket out of here.

Sure. Yet Mexico like Afghanistan has large parts of country under control of drug dealers. Doesn't your own government tell you to be careful when going to Mexico?
