    Pretty shocking statistic. It's been all over the news sites, and i have a feeling it'll become big news. Thoughts?

    Edit. Lol met "as parents". Thanks for posting link.

    All the more reason not to give them citizenship and deport them.

    EDIT:

    Someone will ask for a link.

    This is truly upsetting. All children should have their own illegal aliens.

    You are aware substituting 'are' for 'have' would be correct?

    No, it wouldn't. Under current law no child born in the US is an illegal alien.

    I am aware of very little, except what I envisioned in my own mind.

    How you read my words is not my problem.

    The OP might be a non-native speaker himself.

    Are you afraid that illegal immigrants will make it harder for you to find a job? Speaking your own language properly should improve your career prospects.

    Are you just afraid of the Mexicans or have you got any preference about the illegal immigrants and tourists overstaying/being employed in your country?

    You appeared to imply that it would still incorrect even with that revision.

    I can only read what you type. :)

    Actually, I am more concerned about the potential security issues.

    Here's a brief example of the affect of the Pakistani emigration on England.

    Remember the civil unrest in 2005 in France? A majority of the protesters were immigrants.

    And I'm sure you can find countless examples of the growth in gang/ drug violence, particularly MS-13, in correlation with the growth of the Mexican immigrant population in the US.

    Anyone can recite words by rote, but analysing same requires some thought.

    Go for it. There's a very good chance that you are correct. :p

    Funny that the GOP Blasts Obama for throwing away the constitution yet they are doing the same thing the GOP are the purest form of Hypocrites that I've ever seen.

    I think you just don't like immigrants. Any concern originates from this sentiment.

    The Pakistani population in the UK settled down legally. In the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties, there were various nations, who were allowed to come to the UK. Pakistanis were one of the earliest nations among others in the Commonwealth who could legally come to the UK. But I'm puzzled that the link you provided took me to a part of a Wikipedia entry where 'Allegations of extremism' is. I wonder why you chose this, instead of the relevant source to prove that your argument about legal Pakistanis in Britain would have no standing in the US, where the overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants come from Mexico (whether them being Mexicans or other nationalities from Central and South America). You don't seriously suggest that Pakistani terrorism and Mexican immigrants have any connections, are you?



    Furthermore, the same is true about the 2005 unrest in Paris. It was more of a social issue than anything to do with illegal immigration. Those parts of Paris accommodates a number of second and third generation immigrants who find racism and social intolerance a daily occurrence, whilst suffering from unemployment. When sources note the high number of Algerian descents, you have to realise that again, we are talking about legal citizens of the state. Algeria and France has similar ties as Britain and Pakistan.

    Anyway, you said that you were concerned about Mexicans and you link them to security issues and crime. But don't attempt to support your sentiments with the wrong examples. You cannot whitewash xenophobia.

    Of course the GOP would never stoop to demagoging the immigration issue just for political gain.

    Oh, wait...

    Yep... Who needs to denigrate the gays for political gain when you can hate on immigrants instead?

    This reminds me of an episode of American Dad, where it was discovered that gay people can be conservatives and that a gay conservative is better than a gay democrat.

    Gohmert's a real piece of work, isn't he?

    And let's not forget the pastor who decided burning Korans would show everyone jesus's love, and the calls to halt all mosque construction nationwide.

    Brown bashing seems to have swept through the far right. Bush -- to his credit -- was able to keep a lid on this kind of crap when he was in office, but now the lunatics have taken over the asylum...
