Look at the schools in the LAUSD district: They are packed to the roof with kids who can’t speak english, and who are not in a hurry to learn it.
Look at at all the gangs and crimes from illegals – this is not prejudice from the anglos, it’s a fact! We mexican-americans know this but we are to embarassed to discuss in public!
When my family came here, the first thing everybody did was to learn english, so they could become citizens ASAP! Two of my uncles enlisted in the service during the korean war so they could become citizens faster.
When that dumb ass Reagan gave the first amnesty, mexican-americans knew it would fail, and lead up to the present crisis with illegals. The amnesty of the 1980’s sent the wrong message: “If you can come here and hide for a while, there will be an amnesty sooner or later!”
We know what the problem is: What are we going to do about it? It’s time for us to say with one voice: “Ya basta!” Enough!

How do you Americans of Mexican decent feel about illegals from south of the border coming into your neighborhood, not learning the English language, tagging, flooding our schools, hospitals, starting gangs, shopping carts flooding streets, clown houses, junk cars, 5 kids with one on the way while they are milking the system of WIC, you know….
This is a serious question. And please don’t answer with, “how do I feel about white/black/asian trash” living off the system. I think they are completely lowlifes. Anyone coming here illegally or legally and living off the system is pure scum in my book.
My question is for Americans of Mexican heritage because that is the major population here. I am very curious. I have many American friends whose grandparents came from Mexico and they despise the peasants that are invading this country.
