Cry me a river! Stopping the acts of Illegal Aliens, Boo Hoo.

Legal Mexican Americans should stand up and help enforce US Immigrations Law. But no, some Legal Mexican Americans promote the illegal activites of Illegal Aliens.

Personnal attack, Hog Wash!

No I am not Hispanic but I AM CHICANO and YES I will remember the next time I go to vote which is something that my parents and all their children and grandchildren do at each and every election, even school board or bond elections so no I won't cry you a river but I will remember. If you doubt our sincerity, courage, honor and dignity in what we believe then all you have to do is go to any National cemetray (any of them) and look at the names on the grave markers and you will see how much Latinos, Mexicanos, Hispanics, Chicanos and on and on and on, have and continue to contribute to this country.

The border is the border!Living in a border town I have watched the INVASION from the other side slow take over.Dont think its just isolated to Texas-look what happened to California and the Hispanic hord has even protested in Wisconsin.Theese are not Americans or immigrants wanting to become citizens of this country like the imigrants of many nations before them-they are Mexicans INVADING the United Staes to get what they can for free ,and if they dont get their way they protest and yell discrimination-I say theese people are enemy combatants and should be treated that way for thing to destroy America.

Heres the scope,Australia has taken a stance on immigation that Teddy Roosevelt has 100 years ago.For you uneducated ignoramaces research history and I agree with tired-this county is being invaded.It all stated back in the 50"s with the McCarthy trails and is slowly being overthrown from within.This country is being turned into a socialist state-which is what Mexico is-then which country is the plaque of free loaders going to invade next.There are no jobs here. Hoover, Truman and Isenhower all deported the illegals to save jobs for Americans.It was done before,not its against the constitution.Quit beating you chest on this side of the river for what you want on the other side.Do not hold the contempt you have for your government to OUR government-it worked just fine in the past untill the liberals showed up.And for the last time-your presidenta had a gun held to his head to sign the southwest over-THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LOOSE A WAR-the US could have taken over and occupied your entire country-may be we should have.

This man doesn't represent the entire Hispanic population and he is probably a resident from Mexico. But what I can tell you is that Hispanics are ten million strong in Texas and yes we will not forget, this anti immigration situation has been handled so poorly it is pathetic. The true colors of the White man has been unleashed, for years I have told people that White people are in fear of the Hispanic population. Well here it is, this will be short lived restaurants around Texas are already feeling the punch and some may even close down because the Americans refuse to work measly wages. I sure am glad that El Paso is not a sanctuary city and in the thirty years that I have been driving in this city I have only been pulled over three times by a White cop. The rest have been cops that look like illegals, Now El Rick Perro for president Amigos!!!

Now if this law takes into effect can we please go after all the day laborers in the downtown area, and check all the Chinese restaurants for illegals. As long as this law doesn't have a negative effect in El Paso who cares about the other big cities like Houston and Dallas, because I am sure they are the ones that stand to loose state funding and so fourth.

U.S. citizens of all races should consider a systemic attack on their country's institutions by freeloaders, criminals and opportunists as a threat. Making it a 'racial' issue is shortsighted, because in not so many decades the illegals may be white Europeans trying to get into the predominantly hispanic country.

However, I disagree with this law. It is not the local government's job to do the Federal government's work. Our inability to hold our own Federal government accountable for its incompetence led to this. Let's pass some comprehensive immigration reform that allows immigration by honest hard working people of all races who seek American citizenship and excludes the aforementioned criminals.

Most soldiers that are buried in national cemeteries choose to do so because their survivors are poor and it is free. In that respect, the number of Hispanics buried there are out of proportion to their total demographic numbers. Most of the veterans I know are buried in locally, privately owned cemeteries. Only a small percentage of veterans, nationwide, choose to be buried in national cemeteries. At Fort Bliss, there are no doubt more Hispanics buried there than in the National Cemetery in Dallas, but that is because there is a heavier concentration of Hispanics in El Paso.

Therefore, your rant does not prove anything except that you are narcissistic and that you demand more attention than you merit.

Looks like the previos post about Mexicans tring to over throw the US are correct-To you its a gringo state,for us its America-If you want Mexico,stay there-ther rest of America is tired of you free loaders moving in like a plaque of locus,taking over everything .You and your type are like birds,they look so help less and you feed them,then more show up and more then they demand more and leave nothing but crap behind.Latino gangs are made of Hispanics, and they are spreading over this country.Its your culture that fences in their properties and put bar on their windows because you cant trust each other and steal from each other-its your culture that will ruin this country.

Hispanics will remember, sure, but they don't get their fat posterior extremities to the polls to vote, so what difference does it make?

You know what I remember? I remember Goliad, where 800 Texans defeated 1500 Mexican troops mano a mano (losing only 9 and killing 630), so the "numbers" argument means nothing. The People will take back the Republic, just like they did after they were ambushed at the Alamo. WE will remember, too!

I think the more intelligent American, Hispanic or otherwise, will rebuke what is a feeble attempt by these small majorities of individuals who are dead set on continuing their efforts to undermine our constitution. We live in a country of laws if you don’t like certain laws you have the right as a citizen to attempt changes to these laws,and I say go for it, but until these laws are changed through the legal processes you have to abide by these laws already on the books. There should be no more debate on the issue.

And besides, the so called Hispanic community as a whole is against illegal immigration especially those decedents of legal immigrants from Latin American countries. Ask any Mexican on the bridge at the port of entries arriving form Mexico and they'll tell you they are more fearful of an encounter with a Hispanic looking immigration officer than that of an elderly Anglo officer, they know that the Hispanic officer will scrutinize more these individuals.
