Just because a person is from Mexico, doesn't mean that he or she is involved with any kind of drug cartel or criminal activity. To make every Mexican a suspect is just plain wrong! I believe in innocence until proven guilty! If this country continues to make Mexican people feel like criminals and unwelcome...we could end up in an all out war with Mexico! What if the people of Mexico said that we "Americans" couldn't go to any part of their Country without being stopped by the police and being questioned of our citizenship and intentions? What if we could never be allowed to go to any part of Mexico ever again? That would really affect a lot of people who like to go to the exotic places like Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco and Cancun! Think about this fellow Americans! Let's be careful about our actions and our words! This Country believes in freedom! Let's keep it "free"! Our ancestors were "immigrants"! My immediate grandparents were "immigrants" from Scandinavia! Where would this Country be...without the "Immigrants"? Surely, not where we are... today!

““The country crying racism the loudest is also the country that has the most of their citizens permitted to become naturalized US citizens, Mexico!!!

What are the countries of origin of newly naturalized citizens?
Of those who naturalized in 2008, 22.2 percent were born in Mexico (231,815), 6.3 percent in India (65,971), and 5.6 percent in the Philippines (58,792). Nationals of these three countries, together with those from China (40,017), Cuba (39,871), Vietnam (39,584), El Salvador (35,796), the Dominican Republic (35,252), Colombia (22,926), and Korea (22,759), accounted for 56.6 percent (592,782) of all naturalizations in 2008.

My grandparents are immigrants too but they came here legally as should all immigrants. There is no other country in the world that allows this kind of abuse of its laws by foreigners . Why is this so hard to understand? If you come to this country come and abide by our laws, don't come sneaking here in the middle of night. I feel no guilt for my beliefs, enough is enough. My god our borders are wide open and we are at war !

My grandparents are immigrants and they were hard working people. They did one very important thing. They did it legal.
If the laws cant be followed in the beginning then negative results will follow. We are already seeing this.
That is why it is called ILLEGAL immigrates. It is not a racial thing, it is the law thing.
Its simple, follow the law and do it the right way. Why should they get extra privileges, my grandparents didn't.

dIANE-UGH YOU DON'T KNOW WHATS GOING ON AT ALL DO YOU? "MEXICANS" WERE GIVEN EXCLUIVE CITIZENSHIP BASED ON RACE(since aside from cheap labor that is all they have to offer)AND THANKS TO COMPASSIONATE,SYMPATHETIC IDEOLOGICAL BLEEDING HEARTS LIKE YOU -WHO CAN'T TELL WHEN YOUR PAYING SOMEONE TO ROB YOU ?? WHAT MAKES YOU THINK MEXICO GIVES TWO TACOS ABOUT YOU OR AMERICA? AND WHY DO YOU THINK THEY'RE FLEEING THEIR AMERICAN WELFARE COUNTRY?

DIANE-THE PROBLEM WAS MAKING THEM THE "EXCEPTION" TO THE RULE-AS EVERY OTHER ETHNICITY HAD TO EARN THEIR WAY HERE( thus making them respect what they had) AND KICKING THE BLACKS IN THE NUTS AGAIN BY GIVING MEXICANS FREE CITIZENSHIP?

MEXICANS DEMAND YOU LEARN THEIR LANGUAGE AS OPPOSED TO A COMMON LANGUAGE-THEY HAVE NO FINANCIAL ECONOMICAL OR SOCIAL OBLIGATION YOU OR AMERICA BUT TO EXPAND THEIR CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE CORRUPT TO THE FEDERAL LEVEL "GOVERMENT"
THE DEFINITION IS SIMPLE -"PARASITE"

My family moved to America and had to learn English because it is the universal language. I am not prejudiced, but I have worked for over 25 years with people in Texas and I can say that a large percent of Mexicans(those from Mexico, first generation) that I have worked with or have been involved with in the community have not been very good experiences. On the average, they have been rude and disrespectful. They do not have a problem receiving public assistance (which is my tax money) and I have witnessed many many of them wiring the money they make back to Mexico. I can understand that, because they probably have family there. Be that as it may, they treat our American as if we are just a means to their end. In the public education system, there are alot of problems, because the students will tell you that they are not here to learn English or prepare to be tax paying wage earners, they tell you that they want to just socialize and just have fun. This is the young generation of Mexicans here. They do not consider themselves Mexican Americans. I could go on and on....I am living it and seeing it every day. I don't know what the answer is...all I know is that they are here and we are being very welcoming as a country...free food, free place to stay, freee medical, free education...and they are enjoying kicking us in the gut and laughing...that's all.....

The problem isn't immigration. The problem is no jobs. The problem of no jobs is the monetary system. Immigrants add an incredible amount of money into the system. But the problem is the monetary system. You all are not asking the important fundemental questions
