Immigration in itself is not bad. That people of one culture want to immigrate into another nation is fine. This is why I defend Arab immigration. However, when the government of the nation in question opens the floodgates and asks absolutely no questions, then it gets out of hand. My father is not a US citizen, he has been paying taxes, contributing to society, and waiting in line for years. Juan meanders across the border, and suddenly you have millions of people screaming for his rights? Also, they are opening the border to one single nation. If an Irishman (pulled that nationality out of a hat- it will be my example during this post) got on a plane and tried to make it into the US without papers, he'd be extradited back to Dublin so fast his head would spin. The same thing with a German, a Japanese, an Indonesian, anyone. But suddenly you have people rallying to allow unequal rights for Mexicans. At the moment there are over two million illegal immigrants living in Texas. The reason it is not four times that is because their families are still in Mexico. If you open the border and allow practically free citizenship, Spanish will be the predominant language in Texas within a decade. They want to immigrate to the area for jobs, that's fine, but if there are too many they will be competing for too few jobs. That will cause more harm than good, because it will undermine the local economy. I know a lot of you are going to try to tag me as a hypocrite because I defend Arabs when they emigrate but attack the Spanish. However, it is different. Arabs have to contend with all the laws, procedures, and entrance exams to immigrate, and Mexicans do not (in this case). Simple as that. Mexicans are being allowed into the country, no questions asked, and have people rallying in the streets to let them have that privelege. Also, did you here how the Mexicans wrote a Spanish version of the national anthem? That's kind of like dying the blue portion of the flag green to match the national colors, I think: utterly wrong. A nation's national anthem should NOT be translated.

I think you guys are forgetting they have no money to come across legally. It takes hundreds of dollars to get your visa. So it’s easier to cross the border illegally and then try and become a citizen.

^ It's a miracle!! PB and I agreed on something:eek: Kidding aside, he nailed how most feel about it. Changing our anthem? lame...and I didn't like seeing them fly the American flag UPSIDE_DOWN! If they really wanted to blend into the country as others have, they're going about it the wrong way.

I'm not forgetting that at all. However, if the United States is extending the right for Mexicans without money to immigrate at no cost, why not other nationalities? Millions of Africans are fighting to get out of their nations- full of civil war- and people from Southeast Asia want to come too. If the United States will ignore impoverished Mexicans who enter the country, they should do the exact same to everyone else. Equal treatment for all (one of the constant tenets of my personal philosophies).

Extended- If my father did not have sufficient money to enter this country, he would be flat-out denied the possibility of living here. He has a masters degree in engineering, runs his own business; but because he is Dutch (i.e: non-Mexican), he would be denied entrance to the nation if he could not support himself.

But they can afford to pay the coyotes who guide them here thousands? Sorry bro', but that pig won't fly with me.

They broke a law entering this country illegaly, they are criminals, and should be treated as so.

I also read that during their riots, etc. The entire day, their pathetic riots only affected 6% of the entire nation, still think you're so vital to our economy, gringo?

I'm perfectly with the legal immigrants, it's the illegals that piss me off.

Most that come here already have families here and they help with the coyote, and there are also a lot of people that cross on their own.

If the familys help pay the coyotes...why don't they pay way less for them to enter legally? Sorry the pig still don't fly. Pay thousands when they could go legally and pay hundreds...just don't make sense to me. EDIT: But you're right, some do come on their own.
