    After reading more of the discussion, I dont know why you'd distinguish Latino Americans (born here) from Latino immigrants then, much less Latino immigrants from Latino illlegal immigrants.

    Is this about Latinos or immigrants? (Not directed at you FS, but more to the discussion in general, building on your comment)

    I saw this hilarious video on a guy's twitter and I figured I'd post it up here. Well, vote in the poll. You will either view them positively and explain, negatively and explain, or neutrally and explain.

    Nothing I said was incorrect. You are really grasping at straws. I can understand why.

    Except for the part where you claimed Obama changed how illegal immigrants are categorized, and I showed that to be incorrect. It's funny to watch you engage in historical revisionism while complaining that other people do the same thing. Here it is again though:

    I understand that you're confused by this little nugget. However, it remains as revisionist as the Mexican narrative.

    Re: How do you view the average immigrant from Latin America?

    One of the qualities people are most proud of is the idea that they'd to anything to provide for their family. Anything. So to the people out there who view illegal immigrants (all illegal immigrants) in a negative light - imagine you're living in Mexico where massive drug cartels are beheading people on a daily basis. Imagine that women are being murdered and dumped in the desert and the police do nothing about it. Imagine that you've been waiting years to legally move your family to the United States and it's just not happening.

    If you'd do anything to provide for your family and keep them safe, then illegally moving to the United States would seem like a pretty good option, right? So a quality that makes us so virtuous is the same quality that makes them scum. Hypocrites.

    I did. However, they have nothing to do with your silly statements on how illegal immigrants are categorized or who changed the labels. It's commentary on Obama's claim that he's deported more than other people. That you fail to see that is a testament to importance of reading literacy. Here, let me help you again:

    This has already been proven to be a false claim. Why maintain it?

    ... it... will... stick? Lol. Continuing to avoid the truth won't help you much.
