I mean tons of people from Asia come here from ships, it's not just Hispanics. Hispanics are the main problem right now though. I saw the protests on TV and there were even protests in our University and I am thinking...What the hell are they thinking? First off, they came here illegally, they work for cheap labor and cost people jobs, and then they go and protest and think they have a point to prove. They have already broken the law and they think that they have the right to live here? I mean if they do get citizenship, its setting a dangerous precedent that if you want to gain citizenship, you have a better chance by coming illegally than legally. I know their intentions coming to the USA are good, most of them want a better life for themselves and their family, but a large majority of them harm the economy. I don't want to be stereotypical, but I believe its an obvious fact a large amount of drug dealers and smugglers are Hispanic. Also, people hire them for so cheap many people who want to earn a decent living can't even raise their own family. I also know that many of the people have it really bad in their own country, but honestly, that is no ones fault except their own. Don't come here and make it our problem.
"They took our jobs!"
Bullshit! Do you have any clue how hard it is for an illegal imigrant to get a job that pays well?
@ Ein Thunder
You do know that is the most ignorent thing I have ever heard. There are people who are legal imigrants who don't even speak English and keep their culture alive in America. They love there culture and who are you to say that people can't keep their own culture, and what up with these pauses?
