    Except, not all illegal's waded the Rio Grande to come here illegally; hence, not all illegals are, "wet backs".

Human nature don't work that way. He's gona get the crap kicked out of him no matter what. If he stands up for himself while that occurs he earn a bit of respect doing. Otherwise he goes the way of the rest of the republicans that apologize the dust bin.

    Lizze they are NOT illegal immigrants they are unlawful aliens.
    how does one distinguish between the two?

    Mexicans use the term regularly. I guess there aren't very many Mexicans in New England. Huh?

    Re: GOP Lawmaker Calls Hispanic Workers ‘Wetbacks’

    I'm getting a lil fed up with dumbasses using racist/racial epithets... and racism in general.

    i'm getting more tired of people "defending " their own racists/racism while castigating other's racists.......it's like integrity is a foreign concept or someting.
