All Hispanic are getting blamed for what the Illegals Aliens are doing to our communities/cities/States, the Cartels are doing as well. Get out there and prove yourself otherwise. Get a job, go to school to further your education,pay your way and live a productive life.

Stop favoring the illegals and move on with YOUR life. Let Mexico care for her people. She is responsible not American taxpayers.

What dream world do you live in? Mexicans, no hispanics constitute the majority of illegal aliens in America. I don't have time to check, but I believe they are at least 50%!!!

You are one of those who believe that since we are nation of immigrants, we should embrace illegal aliens!!! NOT! This is what keeps a country from becoming great! The grandparents you cite came through a legal entry, not across the border with a cayote...

Now, as far as working the farm, illegal aliens don't want to do those jobs either! Only the very bottom of the barrel go for the field jobs, illegal aliens are going after YOUR jobs through identity theft, etc. Sorry, the field hand thingy is out moded. My price of lettuce is going to go up regardless!!

It has nothing to do with racism or fear of brown skin!
It is all about doing the right thing,follow the laws of the land.
In my area it is all hispanics. they are (for the most part) rude crude trashy people with no respect for the country that gives them so much.

I'm very surprise and disappointed to see these hight skill democrats and republicans to think about illegals the way they do so.
(They brake the law by entering to the United States and don't pay taxes) come on!!!!
They do pay taxes!!! Every small check they get on a weekly basis taxes come out of that check, money they may never see again. when it comes to retiring the social sequrity get to keep that money because the illegal people can't proved their identity,
Check this out....For an illegal person who worked 24 years and paid to the social sequrity a total of 40.000 dollars through out those years.
Times 12 millions illegal equals to 420 billion dollars and that is assuming every one paid into it.
Remember the only ones who don't pay taxes would be people who works on the outside the Home Depot store, but they end up spending their money within.
.

Nicely said I am sick of people telling me my husband dosnt pay taxes he is here legally he always has but he is not a citizen yet so the 10 years of taxes he has paid he is not able to receive benefits just like my brother in law worked here for 30 years paid taxes just like everybody else the only difference is no benefits it's not fair people are paying into the system and not getting benefits plus the idiots who say they don't pay taxes that's a lie it comes out of there check just like the rest of us only they don't get it back so stop talking about something you know nothing about I know cuz I'm living and everybody who is against Latinos are just running there mouth as well none of my in laws have more then 2 kids and they all have married for a long time 5-9 years so there no bastard babies like some people have said they have families like everybody else I'm so sick of all this hate

Rudeness
Arrogance
Greediness
Violent
Thievery
Dirtiness
loud circus music at all hours
Drunk driving
Kings of the Road/do not obey the rules of the road
Primitive ways,hanging clothes to dry on their front porch
baby diapers for all to see,stubble upon
clogging up parking spaces with cars that don't run
destroying beautiful green grass area for their truck
etc,etc,etc.

Illegal aliens from Canada and Europe are 6% of illegals, illegal aliens from Mexico are 62%, see the problem? Is Mexicans were 6% we wouldn't be talking. Making illegal aliens Americans does not fix the problem, in fact it makes it worst.

These people have a country that they cab rule anyway they want. Americans worked in the fields, who do you think built this country? BTW, Mexicans are very racist but when they come here they play the victim well. They would be booted out of any country on the planet.

This is not hate. This is how I actually saw it to be in the Pilsen Area of Chicago. This area along with the town of Cicero is saturated with Illegals and this is how they behave. Believe it or not,your choice.

I am never rude to anyone,I was brought up to have manners.
I live in Dallas,Texas and one can go to the grocery store and without fail I will start down a isle to find some mexican with basket in blocking the isle and they see you coming and do not make any effort to make room for you to pass,oh no I say "excuse me" and be ignored,usually even saying it twice I will get ignored...Finally I will say "EXCUSE ME!" in a lowder voice and then they take their time to move out of the way!
Do not preach rude to me!
I also notice you just comment on rude.....so I guess you agree with the rest of the list!

Around dallas you hardly never see a mexican in a car/truck that is more than a few years old.Mostly new vehicles.

Now its time for ya'll to try throwing the racist card out.......nope,it's a old and tired excuse
