Your history is wrong, but your point is funny.

Funny story, isn't it? If only the Cherokee and Iroquois had a Homeland Security Department back in 1492...

What's wrong with wanting to keep the Mexicans out?
I want them out too. And the Hondurans, El Salvadorans, Central Americans, Chinese, Koreans, Armenians, etc.
Mexican is a nationality by the way. I don't care someone is a green eyed, blonde haired Mestizo from down south, he needs to stay out.
Framing this debate around 'racism' is old and tired.

Good, keep them out! Mexico does the same thing to their southern border with Central America. You know what the difference between Illegal and legal is? About $600 USD.edit on 21-2-2012 by joyride0187 because: (no reason given)
Except that it is 1/8 of the population. That is a pretty large percentage of dead weight for a society to support, don't you think?

Undocumented Mexicans are starting to go home as there is now more of the jobs they came here for in Mexico than here in the US.
Latest estimates of Undocumented Mexicans here in the US is around 11-12 million people. Most of whom are in the border states but also the southernmost states (that's where the most Americans hiring illegals happen to be).
Population of Texas: 25.6 million people.
Population of New Mexico: 2.1 million people
Population of Arizona: 6.4 million people
Population of California: 37.8 million people
Population of Louisiana 4.5 million people
Population of Mississippi: 3 million people
Population of Alabama: 4.8 million people
Population of Georgia: 9.8 million people
For a total of million people.
That's 94 million total for states that claim illegal Mexicans take all the jobs and all the welfare.
94 million citizens or legal residents to 12 million estimated illegal immigrants =
47 legals to 6 illegals.
It doesn't sound so dramatic of a problem when some common sense is applied, does it? I agree that illegal immigration is a problem, as every nation has the right to defend it's borders and control their resources but, it just doesn't seem to justify the enormous amount of political attention it receives. Be careful of the hatred you're being fed especially since it's all just to win your vote and tax dollars.
