In this day of age the isolationist mentality simply breeds stagmentation and discontent.
The world is simply not big enough any longer to maintain such beliefs.
Keep us apart, keep us at one another throats.
Its what people in power do to maintain control, its an old game but still an effective one to the shame of the people of Earth i might add.
Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%.
During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.
That 38% represents 7,085 murders out of the total of 18,643.
That 5.6% figure for the average illegal alien population in those five states comes from US Census estimates. We know the real number is double that official estimate. Yet, even if it is 11%, it is still shameful that the percentage of murders by criminal aliens is more than triple the illegal population in those states.
Those astounding numbers were compiled by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) using official Department of Justice data on criminal aliens in the nation’s correctional system. The numbers were the basis for a presentation at a recent New Hampshire conference sponsored by the highly respected Center for Security Policy. You can view the full presentation here:
Because statistically Mexicans illegal immigration isn't as bad of a problem as the right makes it out to be.
How does wanting secure borders make someone a XENOPHOBE!?! I'm confused!
I mean, do you have locks on the doors in your domicile? If so, does that mean you're a XENOPHOBE too?

It's a tactic of extremists to mis-label their opposition. If you even hint that Bruce Jenner really is a male transvestite and not a "transgendered person" you are labeled a "homophobe."
That is not the case. She is a transgendered person. A transvestite, I believe, only dresses and acts like the opposite gender. Racist and xenophobe are indeed, actual words. I have used the word racist maybe 3x on this site and the word xenophobe once, after being directed to that being the more appropriate word. I have possibly typed homophobe once or twice at most.
It seems conservatives, on this site, use the words racist, xenophobe and homophobe more to say they they were accused of being such. It is a cooundrum I cannot explain.

I seem to have missed the part where it said that all of those illegals are Mexicans, and I also could have sworn I posted a statistic that talked about illegal demographic makeups. If I didn't know better, this sounds awfully like distorted truth. But you wouldn't do that would you? We deny ignorance here. Right?
Flash to our emigration to the US. My parents found good paying jobs, refugee sponsorship by a freight company in Los Angeles, and we were treated quite well.
