I can say with absolute certainty there is more than a fair share of those who conceal their bigotry with this issue. Their opinions really aren't about immigration, they're about having a white nation. It isn't rare at all.
Over the next five years, the political and economic establishment ensured the reduction of “excess human resources engaged in agriculture” by two million, or by 1/3 of their previous number.
In a number of reports written over a few decades, CED recommended that farming “resources” – that is, farmers – be reduced.
Their plan was so effective and so faithfully executed by its operatives in the US government that by 1974 the CED couldn't help but congratulate itself in another agricultural report called “A New US Farm Policy for Changing World Food Needs” for the efficiency of the tactics they employed to drive farmers from their land.
The human cost of CED's plans were exacting and enormous.
CED's plans resulted in widespread social upheaval throughout rural America, ripping apart the fabric of its society destroying its local economies. They also resulted in a massive migration to larger cities. The loss of a farm also means the loss of identity, and many farmers' lives ended in suicide, not unlike farmers in India today who have been tricked into debt and desperation and can see no other way out.

The thing is all of those things are a two edged sword. Both sides of each of those debates call each other names.

Actually there is a very legitimate complaint Americans are replaced at work by lower paid immigrants. Many companies make the person who is "fired " train their non-American replacement or lose their severance pay. THAT ticks off a lot of people. I walked rather than do the training.
There is not enough work in the Mexican cities so the farmers have no choice but to come to the USA.
Do not get angry at the Americans upset when they see their friends getting the bums rush and the work place filling up with non-americans. Instead get angry at the Bank/Corporate Cartels that have changed the laws throughout the world and stolen the livelihoods of millions of people.
You and the rest who blindly support the current government because they label themselves "Democrats" are deaf, dumb and blind to the final act of the plan for a world wide food monopoly.
Still think Obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread ???

Freedom of speech = freedom to offend?
And what if someone enacts their freedom to respond, and kicks the crap out of the person enacting their so called "freedom to offend", or shoots them dead for the offense you caused?
Offending people for the sake of it just because they have "freedom of speech" just makes someone an ass.
Freedom of speech is a treasure, and a responsibility. Not an excuse for being a moron.
Edited for context.
