You should feel sorry for all people of the earth....they bleed red breath air like you do. This makes me sick to hear so many people on this thread just reply with an "oh well, not our problem". You've let war and silly man-made laws become more important than morals and natural law. You are all the living reason this country is going down the toilet. You have no morals. Simply because you'd help and old lady cross the street and carry her bags, or help your neighbor when they really need it, does not make you moral. You kill your morality when you turn your back on your brothers over man-made, politically-driven laws. /quote]
You don't get it. IT ISN'T MY PROBLEM. A huge part of my family immigrated here in the late 1800's and early 1900's from Europe. Part of my family is NATIVE AMERICAN. That makes them just as, if not more, entitled to the land as the mexicans. There are millions of other americans who have the same type of heritage i have. It's not my fault that 160+ years ago some second and third generation settlers took land from the mexicans. The fact of the matter is that whether you like it or not this land is now part of a sovereign nation.
Here you know what i am going to do. I am going to come over to your house and stand in your living room. When you try to kick me out i will tell you " BUT YOUR ANCESTORS TOOK THE TREES THAT WAS ON MY ANCESTORS PROPERTY AND USED THEM TO MAKE THE SUPPORT BEAMS FOR THIS HOUSE" and then i will hold protests in your house demanding that you give the wood back and while we are at it use up all of your medical supplies, charge pizzas and drinks to your credit cards and invite over all my friends to do the same. Meanwhile i will be speaking the language of the people who supposedly were the first to "oppress" me.
I'm sorry but screw the mexicans. I could care less what race they are or what atrocities were committed against their ancestors or even if they are coming from mexico. They don't deserve any special rights because 160 years ago something happened that me and other people had no control over or relation to. It's not my fault their government has allowed their nation to turn into a festering sore. It's not my fault that the USA and mexican government have been fueling a drug war that is destroying peoples lives. I've actively spoke out against these things. I openly embrace immigrants. I've spent half my life around Costa Rican and mexican immigrants. I understand why many of them want to come here. But to flat out demand to be here because of something completely out of control happened 160 years ago. That's just rude and it defames the character of honest hard working mexicans who are functional and contributing members to society.
All should be welcome to roam the earth as they please. In fact, it is a birthright.
In a perfect world this is true. But we do not live in a perfect world.
