I'd rather give them back California. What good is it? I'm not saying you're a left wing liberal dude, you're more of a right wing liberal. I'm sure you'd agree that CA is too liberal for even you. Look at all the lead bans/ ammo bans/ gun restrictions they have. Texas is the opposite. Let's keep TX and let CA go

They will come from our country and take from it and not accept our values and our customs. Instead they impose their values and customs onto us Americans. Don't believe me? Look at California. There are a few instances where Mexicans have flown their flag over ours. That's what gets me. Not that they are illegal or they don't try, but they refuse to accept American culture. Not to mention they are forming new gangs every single day, but that's another "controversial issue."
Bravo Preacher! You just redeemed yourself 100% for that abortion malarcky.
That's the exact problem I have with immigration. Back when Ellis Island was in operation, we NEEDED the people, and they NEEDED us. Immigrants from Italy, Holland, Ireland, England, Mexico, China, Japan, all had a dream. The dream was to come to America and become AMERICAN. People would pass through the gates at Ellis Island and literally kiss the ground out of thankfulness. They worked hard to SHED their ethnic cultural differences and BLEND in and become AMERICAN. During WWII, How many thousands of Japanese American solderiers, marched proudly, fought bravely, and died gloriously in the name of the Red, White, and Blue? They wouldn't have dreamed of flying their home countries flag benieth the American flag just to show their heritage, They LOVED AMERICA. and anyone who doesn't LOVE America can get the hell out, and go straight back to where they came from. Thes Chicano gangbangers, with the mexican flag, or those Heroin shooting raft riders down in florida with the Cuban flag on their dashboard. They aren't Americans and do not deserve the rights that my Grandfathers fought to provide them with, so to hell with them all.
I don't get why we cannot make it possible for illegals to come here legally. I think the mojority are hard working and looking for a better life... but what is it that make the illegal entry route the preferred choice over the legal route. Does it take too long, cost too much?
Also, most immigrants in the past did blend in as "Americans" but they still held on to their heritage to a degree. (tho only ones who don't all that much are the Germans (I'm part German) due to their shame over WW1 and WW2. Or at least taht's why my gramps celbrated his Irish side and ignored his German side... his brother was killed in WW1... fighting on our side BTW.)
Norwegians, Pols, Swiss, etc. still do some stuff to commemorate their heritage... get dressed up in their funny clothes and dance around eating fish preserved in lye! so I don't mind the Hispanics doing some of that... but I would prefer it if they (those that do this) dropped the La Raza attitude and the notion of taking back California and texas... although I might be willing to let texas go.
now that I think about it... why do we have texas? we've already used up most of their oil, isn't time we let 'em go? kinda like catch & release.
