If your culture and your history is so important to you, then why leave your country in the first place? Why not move to another part where there is more work?

It's statistics.

I suppose that it is racism if a green skinned, no armed man, with a pink mask on robs a bank and a non green skinned police officer sees a green skinned, no armed man, with a pink mask running out of the bank and arrests the man.

I'm sure you're one of those things.. Hispanic. Beyond that, I doubt you're any of those things.

Illegal aliens need to go home. If you don't like it, you're siding with illegal aliens over your countrymen. If that's so, maybe you need to go away with them.

Go home, already!
WOW! another ignorant and below average human being with too much time on his hands... You probably keep complaining about the things you couldn't get or the things you think you deserve and will never have. I'm Hispanic with a mortgage, a six figure income and a great life. and I only have it because of people like you... belly aching on your couch, wondering when things are going to get better!!! Get up! quit your sad and ignorant life and be somebody, Juan, Pedro and Paco are not the problem, you are!. Even after they are gone, you will remain a loser and a hater with no future! have a nice day.

Shoot to kill! Imagine, just imagine if they tried this in Mexico! Then imagine again if an American or anyone else tried this in Mexico?

Time to stop these vermin and parasites from coming into our country!

You cannot have it both ways, Juan. You are either American, or cockroach. You cannot steal everything in America as you do and wave your flags in our country. You have legally declared war on the USA but you are to dumb and stupid to know better.

If being Mexican is so great why are you coming into America? There are other places in Mexico that you could better yourselves.
Shows what kind of scum you thieves are.

America is tired of you aliens and we are pushed way past the limit. You are on borrowed time.

Joe Arpaio is following the constitution of America. That is law.
Reporting illegal aliens is law. That's what you are. Illegal.
Maintain your culture and history in Mexico, you bunch of failures.
Are you so weak that you have to come steal it from Americans? What do you think would happen to any other race who went to Mexico? Would they get a free ride and would they be able to wave their flags at the Mexican federales? Burn the Mexican flag, murder the citizens of Mexico. Run drug cartels throughout and destroy Mexico.

Get out of the USA while you have time!

If you really are an American, you desperately need to return to school and take remedial ESL classes. It's obvious that English is not you're native language. Or, better yet, you should go back to where ever you swam here from and try bettering the living conditions in your home land.
feels like you don't have much to do. do you have a GED? It saddens me to see and hear people like you wasting time hating on other people that were here before you.(1868 santana's law) Don't you know life is too short to waste it on hate and regret? people like you are usually uneducated, poor and shortsighted. look back at the history of this great nation and you will realize that we are a great nation because of the diversity. Wait!!!! you must be "native american" (in my opinion they are the only one's that have the right to talk about this topic) you ignorant peace of trash.
Typical Bullshyte, deflecting reply. Sorry, honey, but I don't hate any particular race, color, creed, religious belief nor sexual preference. There's some individuals I can't stand, however.

Also hate to inform your assumptive rear end but I happen to have an E.E. degree and worked in the Electronics Industry in the Silicon Valley for over 30 years. My last position was as a Senior Field Service Engineer. I probably made more in one year than you'll make in 10 so try again.

Wrong again, oh class clown. Even Native Americans came here from somewhere else. Learn a little history. There would never have been ANY Mexicans in the US Southwest if the Spanish hadn't brought them here as slaves to use as slave labor to build the missions.

Right back at you, you ignorant piece of trash!

Not wanting someone to steal everything from my pocketbook does not make me a racist, is makes me intelligent. Not my family, much less a bunch of illegals here to steal everything they can. If you knew your history, you would know about the American Naturalization Process and the constitution. If you are so rich, bitch, give all of your money to these vermin. None of my ancestors who came to America got a free ride. You hater of the founders of America. Hater of the very soil of America.

Here is hoping an illegal takes your job from you.

who gives a rat's ass about you, and your petty little job? I could wipe my ass with your little dollar bills! Piss on your brainwashed head.

Then you can join the beggars on the streets of Mexico and drink the sewer water. Thinking of what America offered you, and you gave it to your filthy companions.

Try reading it again. I want anyone who is currently here illegally to go back where they came from. I'm about as anti illegal immigration as they come.

Can't do that here. We don't eat our dogs. Our age of consent is much older here. We don't usually park our cars on the grass. Most of us hate your carnival music.. You get the picture..Vamoose.

If "escaping" from Mexico to the United States is analogous to blacks riding the underground railroad, then I guess that makes the Felipe Calderón analogous to Jefferson Davis?

Valenty, six figure income my arse. Juan Pedro and Paco are the problem as well as the pathetic Catholic church and it's every sperm is sacred policy. Teeming hordes of poor, uneducated, fat, stupid, is Mexiholes legacy, just like their sister country, the Philippines. When countries like these are so pathetic they bring down the rest of the world with their over population policies, exporting their massive amounts of poor, that are only good at menial jobs and crime. Stop with the hispanic history lesson, who care what some pathetic spaniard cried out with no authority or power, his words were like a fart in the wind. Your machismo is also a joke. Go back to Mexihole.

"I don't think people would have such a problem if immigrants would become tax paying citizens and paid into the welfare system and the public school systems etc... "

Acceptance should'nt be automatic they need to be of value to society and the economy just because it's done by legal means doesn't mean we we should accept anyone that goes through the process(not all legal immigrants are good for this society or the economy)...immigration should be a as needed program with decretion on the side of value.

I agree. If you're not going to add value, we shouldn't let you come here.

The US Constitution doesn't mandate that only a particular class of people be allowed into the USA.

Then we should be incorporating an abortion policy of millions upon millions of American Citizens because we have people here who are useless, most are right wing radicals here on Topix who cannot even figure out how to compete with an illegal immigrant on the job market so they instead disseminate hate for a group of illegal immigrants who have surpassed them on the social class ladder.

I'm not stepping on the eugenics land mine. I'll just leave it at this:

I despise worthless, able-bodied people, no matter where they hail from.
