'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)
Those people in Arizona! What they’re saying is, 'I got mine, you can’t have yours.'
In 1860 they crapped on the Irish. In the 1930s and ’40s, when I was growing up, it was the Italians. Now it's the Mexicans.
If a Mexican guy wants to come here and work hard for his family, I’ve got no problem with that.
Uncle Don, a former sheriff’s deputy and retired career Coast Guardsman. (credit for 19th C. American sheet music confirming his 1st observation) His words expressed exasperation at the anti-immigrant campaign now being waged by Arizonans – many of whom, it must be said, themselves arrived in that air-conditioning-dependent state not all that long ago.

Sorry but the "legal" Hispanics are being embraced and incorporated into our society, that is if they take the time to learn English and are law abiding. We do not care for several million illegals in our country no matter if they are Mexican or Canadian. I have seen far less bigotry to the Hispanics than recieved by the Irish and Italians.
