Based on you above post, you have some nerve speaking on an individuals "mentality" you're a stark raving racist and have proved your mentality with the previous rant.

Your ideas and beliefs are the poison to American principles, and a threat to liberty and freedom.

It's understandable why your political ideology has been thoroughly rejected in America.

They still think stealing tax payers money is right and give it to illegals so they will have easy life.Maybe when you grow up ,you will develop a brain.

The millions of illegal immigrants are not solely from Mexico or for that matter limited to being Hispanics, you can't identify who's illegal by a glance, that's impossible because they look exactly like you in most cases, but you are focused only on the Hispanic immigrants in America.
You're a Fascist at your very core and racist by nature.
Who cares,what kind of alien are you?

Why do we need ANY temporary foreign workers when we have 20+ million unemployed in America and are about to make another 20 million citizens?

It makes no sense at all, but that's our government.

No they are not all Mexican, but 90% of the illegal aliens come across the Mexican border. Close the border, and solve the criminal entry problem.

No your'e wrong. Some did come to work but most came with their families to have babies and become American Citizens. So they could get Welfare, Foodstamps, medicaid and drain American Citizens dry.

Nope, the facts state otherwise.

According to the DHS & the GAO, nearly have of illegals (4-5 million out of 10 million) in this country came on a legal visa and simply overstayed.

Facts are fun......

Downfall would go alot faster if we were on the border of our mother country china. No illegal immigration problem at all since we would let them call the shots.

You live in Texas thus it may appear there are a lot of illegal Mexicans in Texas, however, Until America purchased Texas, Texas was Northern Mexico.

You're the alien living in Texas not the Mexicans.... ROFLMAO. It's not surprising a Texan knows what's available in terms of hand outs 1 in every 4 Texans live at or below the poverty level and 65% of the workforce receiver federal wage subsidies.

Independent of the common opinion of Texans of themselves, you all are a state of parasites.

What's that say about the wage scale and the intellectual capabilities of the work force in Texas where American Citizens have to compete against Bean Pickers for Employment?

Most Americans don't recognize illegal aliens as being a threat to their economic vitality because uneducated aliens can't compete with them for employment.

Americans with marketable skills aren't in competition with illegal mexicans for employment or have a concern about being replace by illegal residents.

There is closer to 30,000,000,000 illegals then there is 11,000,000,000. The Government is lying about the numbers. Of course they are a threat. They are stripping money, and freebies needed by our own people. They are dangerous to society driving drunk, and all drugged up. They are uneducated, and force their children into our already over crowded school systems. They give nothing back to society. They need to go home. Their countries have shipped the worst possible people across the border.

Really, can you name one instance where the Teaparty instigated any violence or racism? Because they were offering 10,000 if you could come up with one. Now the Dems commit nothing but violence.

One other thing, Obama decided that Illegals from Mexico could get free or instate tuition for College, but Citizens pay out of state. You must admit that's not right.

A remark about immigration made by a Native State Representative at a hearing in the Kansas House of Representatives has attracted the attention of major media -- and yet to many Natives, it's merely the plainest of facts.

The hearing concerned the legality of offering children of illegal immigrants to pay the in-state tuition rate to attend universities and community colleges in Kansas. The Legislature was seeking to overturn a statute that has been on the books for nearly a decade -- a Topeka Capital-Journal story described the effort as an "annual attempt."

Ponka-We Victors (D-Wichita), a member of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma and the Tohono O'odham Nation, and the only American Indian in the Kansas State Legislature, offered her reading of the situation to Kris Kobach, Kansas' Secretary of State.

"I think itís funny Mr. Kobach, because when you mention illegal immigrant, I think of all of you," Victors said, prompting cheers from the gallery, described by the Capital-Journal as "heavily pro-immigrant." Rep. Arlen Siegfreid (R-Olathe) the chairman of the House Federal and State Affairs Committee, felt moved to tell the room, "Please don't do that."

The encounter takes on added significance when one considers the man Victors was addressing. Kris Kobach is known around the country as an anti-immigration hawk, and had a hand in such controversial measures as Arizona's SB 1070. As Mother Jones puts it, "if there's a controversial new anti-immigration law that's captured national attention, chances are that it has Kris Kobach's imprimatur."
