There's video and it's on MSM news everywhere there's even other threads about the same event

My iPhone broke so I post from a crappy source while I'm waiting for a new one.

What bothers me about this is not so much the "illegals". Hello, who knows who was legal and who wasn't. For all we know 99% of them were. I can certainly understand the anger coming from people of Mexican heritage or just everyday normal decent people in general. One could argue semantics and the like but Trump basically kicked off his campaign by saying that Mexicans, the one entering illegally in particular, are rapists and criminals. He even went on to say that Mexico isn't sending us their best but rather(again) their rapists and criminals.

I personally do not like illegal immigration but the fact remains that certain sectors of the U.S. economy is dependent on legal and ILLEGAL migrant(or otherwise) workers. If the government were to pull every illegal WORKER out of California we'd have a big problem. Also I can see the anger in regards to Trump's deportation plans. What he is suggesting is nothing short of a new " Gestapo " like force that will need to bus MILLIONS and MILLIONS of people to the nearest rail head and then transfer them south in cattle cars or box cars? That's all assuming that the Mexican government will accept all of these people, many who likely don't even hold Mexican citizenship! Enough of that though.

I'm not really trying to debate policy at this point. Rather, I'd like to say that I am a bit troubled by these reports. It's a bit scary to see a group of people, people that may well be American citizens, waving a foreign flag in protest of a presidential candidate's rhetoric. While I can more than sympathize with their disgust in relation to some of Trump's comments I find it utterly abhorrent that they would protest with a flag of another nation. If they are in fact American citizens then they should damn well act as such. This is just another dividing wedge. I have no problem with American nationalism, it includes all that are here. America is a salad bowl or melting pot after all. Had these people flown a Mexican flag below an American flag that would be one thing. This is an entirely different thing. It's sad that a country that has been a home to these people doesn't seem to garner their respect or possibly even appreciation.

Again, I do not like or agree with Trump on many issues. These protesters, even IF they were illegal but called America home should have been flying the stars and stripes as well as standing up for American values.

Next step for these hate America first fascists is standing guard over the voting booths with baseball bats to ensure people vote their way. Thuggery is the new norm for the radical Left.

This is cementing Trump support, as it should.

Can people stop saying they "have Mexican friends"?

Or they "get along with Mexicans". ?

If they live in the UNITED STATES, they aren't Mexican. Odds are you have not ONE friend that is Mexican. Odds are you've never seen or shaken hands with a Mexican...Unless you went to MEXICO.

In other words, "Mexicans" are a Nationality. Not a race, not an ethnicity. If you're in the U.S. and you say you're Mexican....you're either visiting, or here illegally.

Secondly, if you are an American, and waving a Mexican Flag, you're giving homage to a foreign nation. If that is your preferred flag, over ours, please go to MEXICO.

Please, just leave.

California might as well be a de facto state of Mexico. What's going on in the south west is nothing short of threat to our nations sovereignty. Just my opinion from an outside observation. The people that hire illegal aliens should be jailed.

Donald Trump is running a reality TV show. Any good reality TV show features conflict and betrayal. If there were no violence swirling around his rallies, Trump would need to hire people to provide it.

That is definitely what should happen. The fact that they burn the US flag while waving the Mexican flag should be key enough that there anti-American and most likely illegals. Deportation would be one of the more effective ways of getting rid of this trash. The second would be abolishing the bloody "political correctness" regime that paints them as heros, while painting trump supporters as evil.

Just to reiterate.

It's easy to go right to my emotional reaction and not think things through its complicated to step back from your emotions into your logical mind and listen to what someone is saying and trying to reach out to them and find common ground.

Meh. Thanks for the thanks. I usually don't get too many replies or quotes. Maybe my posts are too long. I see very many two line replies to important topics that often add nothing more than one's agreement or disagreement. I've got nothing against Mexicans or anyone else being proud of and defending their heritage and culture. There was a time however when many people from vastly different cultural backgrounds all strived to be Americans first. This is what bothers me as I fear its yet another divide and conquer tactic to keep society subdued and internally fighting.

Yes exactly!

That's my problem exactly. Everyone wants to come here which I have no problem with but they don't come here and patriate our country they come here and try to change everything to fit their culture .

I'm all about experiencing different cultures but I'm not going to be forced to be Muslim or adapt to anyone elses culture I'm an American and I like our country and I don't want to be forced to deal with everyone else's crap I want to be left to live how I want without our lass and government changing to favor some foreigner

Being illegal forces you to live like a criminal because you are a criminal ylu have to assume fake identities and everything its a natural inclination to totally ignore our laws.

What people do not realize is that if the tables were turned, Mexico would have built a wall to block Americans out of their country a long time ago.
Look at how they classify foreigners after they lawfully become citizens of Mexico. They don't even allow the individual to own land.
