What do you think about other races(Asians, black and white)?
Do you dislike them?
Do you just hate gangs?
Are you in a gang or mafia/mob?

How does one go about stuffing two cars inside of a school bus?

I saw this once and have been scratching my head ever since.

Welcome to the site.

America is better in the sense that money is much easily made here.
If you make someone legal they will have to pay taxes.(I'm not sure if that answers your question)
If you are legal you dont have to live in the shadows, you dont have to worry about being deported and having to start over or losing your family.
I call my self Mexican because I was born in Mexico and raised by Mexicans.

So there was already essentially a community already built.

I will be completely honest with you. I like Mexicans! I'm a retired teacher and a good majority of young Mexicans I had in my classes were respectful and hard working. In fact I taught for 22 years and my best student I had was a Mexican girl who graduated as the valedictorian of her senior class! She was a model student and worked from the time she came into class until the end of the class period. I had her brother two years later and he turned out to be the complete opposite! I couldn't figure that one out. He had a lot of anger issues. My Bosnian students were also very respectful and hard working.

My grandparents were Italian immigrants and like many European immigrants, they came here legally. They were also discriminated against, but worked hard to gain acceptance. Even though Italians came to this country legally, the criminal element in the form of organized crime also slipped through during the immigration process. With today's technology, we still won't be able to identify many who will engage in crime. I think that's very concerning to many Americans when it comes to Muslims who harbor radical Islamist beliefs and can engage in mass killing of innocent people.

My question to you is why did you leave Mexico and why wouldn't you go through the legal process of coming into this country legally? Don't you want to be considered an American citizen? If not, why?

I do not discriminate whatsoever.
I do hate gangs actually, I grew up in places where they were present and seen bad things, which in turn made me hate those things, so no i am not in a gang or mafia/mob.

Thanks for the read! I really appreciate when I hear the good stories about Mexicans!

Like I said before, I was brought into the US by my parents when I was 3.
I am currently working to get legal but it is quite a pricey and lengthy process.
And yes I do want to be considered an American citizen, that would be great!

How do you feel about the amount of criminals who used the same types of systems you used to get into the country?

How have you obtained work...like under the table jobs only? Also are your employer's informed of your status?

Edit: I guess technically your parents used...you were 3 you had no clue lol.

No not really. I want to know why you think America is a better place than Mexico.


If you are legal you dont have to live in the shadows, you dont have to worry about being deported and having to start over or losing your family.


What exactly is 'iving in the shadows'? Apparently you have been able to make a living for the last 19 years.
Did your parents pay taxes?
Did you go to a public school?


I call my self Mexican because I was born in Mexico and raised by Mexicans.


Did they / Do they want to be legal citizens?
Are you currently working a job that a legal citizen could perform?
Even though you call yourself a Mexican, do you consider yourself an American?

I have obtained work by word of mouth I guess? It is under the table.

Why did you not answer the other question?

Edit: Nor did you say if your employer's know of your status or not
