I don't think it's about illegal immigration.

How can anyone tell whether a Hispanic person is an illegal or legal immigrant just by looking at them? How can they tell whether they are a natural born U.S. citizen or a legally naturalized one? Or if they are just here as tourists? The answer is that you can't.

They just hate them for not being white like them. They call them illegal because they want to hate them but not admit why.

All you have to be is of a slightly brown skin tone and have dark hair I guess: my nephew's wife is part American Indian and was told, as she walked down the street in Chicago, "Go back to your own country!" That was really ironic, no?

2. no of course not.

Just making this point because it's getting lost in all the illegal talk. Racism is at the heart of it and whenever we hear "illegal" that's what they are really saying.

4. The "criminality" of undocumented immigration is the excuse for fascists.

It is the excuse to cover their bigotry and to give them a scapegoat.

It is the excuse for fear mongering.

Citizen criminality costs us much more in any category, yet they are only concerned about stopping the brown folks.

5. Illegal Immigrant has been right-wing code-speak for brown-skinned folks

From Mexico and Central America and their American-born children and descendants for over a generation now.
