Unless they have some special X-Ray vision that spots who is and isn't illegal, race is ALL they have to go on. But no, that wasn't it. Please.
    Yes, it was MEXICANS (or mexican americans) that were taunting the guys in the truck based on their race (caucasian).

    Does it MATTER if those mexican kids were legal citizens or the children of border jumpers?? The fact of the matter is that they are demonstrated the level with which they are OFFENDED at the mere SIGHT of an american flag.

    Now, I'm cool with mexicans celebrating cinco do mayo and all that, displaying their flag... but when they start removing american flags, or calling legal mexican immigrants slurs like 'coconut' (white inside)... at a certain piont it becomes a declaration of war, whether or not you accept that they are attempting a takeover of at least sections of america.

    What do you mean, too much cost for too little gain??

    Flight to mexico : 500$
    Then that illegal immigrant is no longer draining on any social services which taxpayers pay into, no longer working a job for a fraction of the wage of an american worker.
    At the same time, a legal citizen can come in and take that job, pay the taxes on his employment, the employer is matching the taxes, that money goes back into the economy, reducing unemployment, etc....

    There is ALOT to gain from rooting out the illegals (of any nationality, it just happens the vast majority are mexicans... not to mention that most illegal aliens arrived legally but simply overstayed)

    I think you have created a strawman so you don’t have to argue the real problem.
    It's funny how people can actually SUPPORT illegal immigrants.... They'll frown about downloading a song, but they'll let these people flout the law.

    If I were an illegal I sure as hell wouldn't hang around either. I would take off to a place more accommodating because my goal is to make money, not make a political stand.

    Like electricity, illegals take the path of least resistance.

    There will never be any need to bus up millions of illegal even if the FED came down hard with devastating punishments for businesses and illegals alike.

    So, no, we don't have the money to jail them, but neither do we need the money to jail them. Simply enforce the laws on the books, streamline the legal immigration process, and build the damn fence.
    Crazy concept you got going... enforcing laws. You gotta be a racist.

    Seriously though, if you just made it so illegal aliens had no way to get work(period). Then they would starve themselves out of the country.

    Clearly, these little wife-beater clad white boys had one intention - to use the US flag and shout "Go Home" to (as far as they knew) legal Hispanics. There's not one instance of the video that proves that the kids being angered are not American citizens.

    The little punks in the truck assuming that someone with brown skin isn't American because they're proud of their heritage are provoking anger. That's using the flag for all the wrong reasons.

    If it's going to be misused, then its symbolism no longer matters.

    To defend the nobility of the nations symbol when it's clearly being misused by punks is to completely misunderstand the symbolism in the first place.

    Do you defend the Klan using the flag? Do you defend neo-Nazis using the flag as their symbol? While there may be people who use the Confederate flag for non-racist purposes, one must admit that many people have used it for racist purposes. Does it mean that those being angered by a particular symbol when it's being used for clearly provocative purposes are hating the symbol? Or are they hating the people using the symbol for wrong reasons?

    Seriously people. Can't we possibly put ourselves in the others' shoes? Or do we have to support those who are clearly trying to pick a fight just because they invoke the flag?

    Isn't is possible that the flag can be misused? I believe in this case, it was clearly being misused.
    **** THAT!!! Those kids were protesting protesters who were in favor of illegal immigration whether or not they themselves were illegal doesn't make a difference.

    Where do these libs get their fuzzy ideas?
    The only fuzzy ideas would seem to be yours.
    1) the horse was brought to the Americas by the Spanish.
    2) The hypothesis that the Mammoth was hunted to extinction is unproven. There is currently more evidence that climate changes caused their extinction.
    Unless you'd like to provide the peer reviewed theory you allude to.
    3) The white man drove the Buffalo to near extinction, not the native Indians. This is common knowledge, unless you'd like to provide the evidence to the contrary.

    As to the idea of running whole herds off of cliffs. Herds of Buffalo generally numbered in the 10s of thousands (pre-manifest destiny era) and there is no evidence that native indians ran "whole herds" off cliffs, they usually separated off a small group if that was the tactic being employed. However, it is known that the white man did run whole herds off of cliffs for their skins, leaving the meat to rot.

    No need to whisper unless you don't want the rest of us to hear such nonsense and think you foolish.

    Why don't we talk about how these peace loving natives took slaves...and I don't mean "indentured servitude"....
    If that is what qualifies as being "savages" then our country should look in the mirror and greet the savages they see.

    What "gangbanging piece of black trash" are you referring to in that video?

    So you didn't see it as a truckload of white kids taunting Latino people? This is just my opinion, I'm sure those kids always have a couple little American flags in the truck and always drive around slowly, waving their flags... where ever they go. [/sarcasm]
    I'll bet those kids planned to go out and cause trouble. They found some. I'm not surprised you missed it.

    Would you rather we do these things to people who enter the country illegally? Personally I think what we do is better if these are the alrernatives.
