Started dating a mexican woman six months ago, we are both 45, IMO from what ive seen hispanics are very giving and friendly if given a chance, they throw alot of parties and family gatherings (which tend to go on foooorreeevveerr, at least compared to american get togethers.) Of course they come here to make money, so would I, the shocking part is most would travel back home often, they are just afraid they wouldnt get back in so they stay here, then thier kids are born here and are americanized and of course again they will want to be where there kids are. another myth is that you cant be deported if you have children here...Ive seen it happen. some bad things..one is the famous latin temper, its real lol, another is ive seen a little prejudice between hispanics based on nationality, el salvadorian vs mexican vs peruvian etc, but its extremely mild compared to american prejudice. my wildest opinion on fixing the immigration problem? we will never stop it or send them all home so the only real solution is throw open the borders and eventually mexico will have to come to grips with its corrupt government, which will make it safer for everyone, who knows? maybe it will become a great place to vacation or retire!

I went to "nacional himno americano" (American national anthem in Spanish) just to see what Mexicans and Spanish people would think, and almost every comment had things like, "F*ck Americans" and "Long Live North Korea and bombs on American cities" and other crap like that.

Also, a poll said that 82% of Americans view Mexicans positively:

"A majority of Mexicans (52%) have an unfavorable view of Americans, while only a third (36%) have a favorable view. In contrast, 84 percent of Americans view Mexicans favorably, while only 10 percent view them unfavorably."

I live in SATX so I experience them everyday. I have no issues with them, most are cool. I do have issues with the ones who refuse to assimilate American cultures and customs. In SATX you see the blatant disrespect. I work at a University and we have a number of students from all over the world obviously. No one gets special treatment, but the Hispanics do. One of my Russian students who works night and day learning the English language has to jump through leaps and bounds to get something in his native language just to atleast assist with filling something out, or comprehending. Not hispancis, they just press 2, or most likely the doc is available in Spanish. It is very annoying when you incounter the ones who refuse to speak, or even try to learn English. I would just like to see equal treatment and available programs for all ethnic groups, not just Mexican, Hispanic, or whatever you wish to identify with.

You're Latino? Look, I don't CARE about American politics or Cuba either way. I'm just trying to say that many of you Mexicans hate Americans, while far fewer Americans hate Mexicans.

I have no problems with any particular race when it comes to being an American Citizen. Welcome to Americsa if you come here legally & obey all our laws.

Your question of Mexicans in particular makes me look at the history "Illegal" immigrants from Mexico. When coming here illegally (In Mexico you go to prison for illegal entry to Mexico). You broke laws to come, stay here & commit fraud on the taxpayers to get housing, medical & food coverage. Shows no respect for the laws we have. America is a country of laws. Having broken so many laws just to be on the pavement in the USA means you have not problem beaking any of our laws.

Here in SLC, illegal immigrants drive with no insurance, no license, & can't even read the trafic signs. One injury accident costs Utah taxpayers $ 10's of thousands for medical & property damage & enormous legal fees.

Local resturaunts here, were buying cheese from an illegal, then many many people got sick. Turns out the cheese was being made in his bathtub, No Respect for the laws. Health laws, permits none were adhered to.

These are the people I have a problem with. Come to America Legally & be an American. Don't try to turn America into where you came from.

We love Mexicans ......in Mexico ! The ones we meet while vacationing there are so nice, love to provide great service and are very proud of their family and country. We enjoy the Mexican culture and people a lot when we go south of the border.

The Mexicans who are in the USA legally and who are becoming part of the big melting pot here, are fine too ........but the ones who jump the border, come here to sell drugs, gang bang, commit rape, murder & other crimes or steal benefits or jobs here that don't belong to non citizens, them I could do without.

Romanizing America through Immigration
www.pccmonroe.org/Ecumenism/romanizingamerica...

History of Catholic Immigration in the United States

By the time of the American Revolution, 35,000 Catholics formed 1.2% of the 2.5 million white population of the thirteen seaboard colonies. The Catholic population of the United States, which had been 35,000 in 1790, increased to 195,000 in 1820 and then ballooned to about 1.6 million in 1850, by which time, Catholics had become the country’s largest religion. Between 1860 and 1890 the population of Roman Catholics in the United States tripled primarily through immigration. By the end of the century, there were 12 million Catholics in the United States.

By the beginning of the 20th century, approximately one-sixth of the population of the United States was Roman Catholic. By the end of the 20th century, Catholics constituted 24% of the population. Modern Roman Catholic immigrants come to the United States from the Philippines, Poland, and Latin America, especially from Mexico.

According to Luis Lugo, the director of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, nearly a quarter of all Catholics in the United States are foreign born. He notes: "To know what the country will be like in three decades, look at the Catholic church."

Immigration

John F. Kennedy initially proposed an overhaul of American immigration policy that later was to become the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, sponsored by Kennedy's brother Senator Edward Kennedy. It dramatically shifted the source of immigration from Northern and Western European countries towards immigration from Latin America and Asia and shifted the emphasis of selection of immigrants towards facilitating family reunification. Kennedy wanted to dismantle the selection of immigrants based on country of origin and saw this as an extension of his civil rights policies.

I have an uncle that lived in Mexico for years. He lived in a community named Chapala. It was in the same region as Guadalajara. He said the people there are incredibly friendly to the point you almost believe they are fake. But, you get used to it. He said it is much differenet than in America where people aren't quite as friendly on a regular basis. As for any violence, he told me that there were absolutely zero murders in his town or in any of the surrounding towns, the whole entire time he was living there. Now, he did see murders and experience threats and violence closer to the border. That is where most of the bad stuff happens. Anywhere there is an iconic resort with Americans or near the border with America, where you will find American lust for drugs, there is sure to be violence nearby.

Another uncle of mine went there, and reaffirmed what he was saying. This other uncle of mine had extensive dental work done while he was there by an American Dentist for pennies on the dollar compared to here. Also, they enjoyed 3 days and 3 nights stay at a lodge, all meals, room and board, and drinks included, as well as 2 whole days fishing for huge Largemout Bass, for about $200 American. What's more, the man who owned the lodge is still friends with my other uncle to this day!!! They met twice, and they are still friends two years later! He also made a friend with another man that took him to Scorpion Island to meet the family that owns it. The man that took him, and, the family, are both still friends with regular contact, and invited him back down to stay any time he wants. Hell, I've had American friends for years that weren't that inviting towards me. I really feel that most of the Mexican people have it over big time on Americans when it comes to friendliness and hospitality towards one another. Again, you have lots of violence which is currently on the down swing, but, it is only where you find American influence.

I find the Spanish and Mexican people rather refreshing personally. Most have very strong family ties, are religious, pleasant, hardworking and honest people. Wish I could say that about the rest of the immigrants.

I've never me a person ever that made me think.....jeez, I bet this person and I could not get along, because of our difference in religion, skin color, view on world politics or any other nonsense. If I meet someone who can look me in the eye and give a firm handshake, we are off to a good start right there. I can tell alt from that first impression and handshake...... If he or she keeps their word and proves to have only good intentions toward myself or my family, we will surely get along.......but cross me once , or lie, cheat or steal and we are not gonna be sipping suds again anytime soon......despite what your ethnicity is, or what other things you may think you have going for you.......I am German & Indian .....I have Asian and black relatives who I care a great deal about. I haven't seen the black cousin of mine for a while now, because he lost his way and got mixed up with drugs, etc.....but I only quit hanging around him because of his drug use and the company he was keeping, never mind his darker skin.......and if he came to me today , all sobered up and trying to do well for himself, I would certainly help my blood cousin out in any way I could. I've also got a white cousin that has followed the same path with drugs overtaking his life, I haven't spoken to him in years either for the same reasons. My point is that a true racist isn't really anyone's friend or loved one. Racists hate just to hate and a lot of the posts on this board are by folks that hate Zimmerman for killing a black man. They won't give Zimmerman his day in court, they have already made up their minds because he killed a black, that is awful damned racist if I ever seen such a blatant example. Maybe Zimmerman is a pedophile too? I heard the same rumors about him molesting a relative or something. If that's true then he deserves his day in court to answer for that also. We are not judge and jury and given certain circumstances of this case, who knows what all the facts are that will come out. If he did act in a murderous way and kill this kid then he should be punished, I wouldn't argue that.......likewise , if it is proven that he was defending himself, then tray on got exactly what most of us would have given him......I haven't made up my mind on his guilt or innocence but I am no blind donkey either......I have read some of what's out there and my money would be bet on Zimmerman heading for a warm vacation when it's all over with.....I don't see evidence to date that shows him to be a murderer......I do see a lot of racist blacks and whites, calling for the life of Zimmerman to be stuffed out tho and that is sickening. The black panthers even said some stuff that should have got them federal time but Nobama gave the broth as some slack since they was only playin? Wtf? If that was any other hate group doing the same thing to another race, Nobama woulda,sent drones to attack!

We should deport all hispanics from all US islands including: Peurto Rico, Virgin Isl and Cuba.

If they are US territories they should not be occupied by hispanics.

Based on the assumption that they should all go back to Mexico where they came from, then perhaps EVERYONE needs to go back to their supposed homelands and leave America to the real native Americans - the American Indian. This is such a racist and very small minded post.
That's a great point, every nationality is contributing to the growth of America. If America is in debt is not because of the Mexicans but te bad administration of past governments

You know why those gangs are so powerful? Because that power has been given to them by bankers, successful business people and politicians, many of those WHITE, and many of those involved in the administration of your country but there's always a big cover up, If you are gonna judge, read first before you generalise and reveal your ignorance. Those gangs do not represent the mexican culture.
