is it just me? cause it feels like it...?

why when we talk about immigrationh the main target becomes Mexicans. We are being misinterpreted as terrorists and animals(just like we are treated). there are good and bad people, i agree, but that goes for everyone, and if you didn't know, the majority of the crimes being comitted in the U.S come from WHITES, but guess what... the majority in jail are actually the AFRICAN AMERICAN AND THE MEXICAN. people just HATE and it is disgusting.

Update:

i guess i was right , i am the only one cause i am not getting any serious answer

    No i agree with you. Don't let it get you down. People are just ignorant. Your talking the truth and your not alone in feeling that way. Mexicans have contributed a huge amount to america and the world. Forget what other people say just be proud of how you are.

    Wait up here. The majority of crimes are committed by whites, but the majority in jails are blacks and Hispanics.... Something does not add up there. I guess 1+1=4 in your warped little world. I know the issue keeps going back to Mexicans, but that is only because any time the issue is brought up, the Mexicans get personally offended, even when they are not being referred to. When I say illegal aliens should be deported, I don't mean Mexicans, I mean all illegal aliens.... You should take a step outside into the real world.

    You have your facts wrong. The main target is Mexicans because they make up more than half of the immigrants. All other immigrants share the other half. They have the highest birth rate. Blacks and Asians are replacing themselves with a slight growth in their populations. Whites make only 8 babies for every 10 deaths, so we aren't even replacing ourselves. Mexicans have 45 babies for every 10 deaths. So, Mexicans are more than half the immigrants and the highest reproducing population.

    Whites make up the largest population in the states now, but you should know that all statistics regarding whites include Mexicans because they can't tell us apart. So take those with a grain of salt. While whites are the highest population, and highest total numbers of crimes, we commit fewer percentages of crimes. In other words, if we are 75% of the population, we committ fewer than 75% of the crimes. We are mostly law abiding citizens.

    While blacks are only 13% of the population, or something like that, they commit 1/3 of the crimes. And I'm not talking about economic crimes. I'm talking about violent crimes. That is why more of them are in prison, etc. Criminals always blame the victim and the system rather than themselves, and use race as one of those lame excuses.

    I like Mexican Americans and they called themselves AMERICANS not Mexican people. You can't be a Mexican nationalist and racist and still expect us to treat you like an American regardless of your other qualities.

    First, I have nothing at all against Mexicans. What people don't realise is that Mexicans are very conservative and hard-working people. They believe in family and God and go to church and encourage their kids to get an education. That is all well and good to me!

    However, the same values that they espouse that are so laudable bring them to commit a fundamental crime. The only reason most of them sneak across the border is to make things better for their families! Who can blame them? I certainly don't.

    My across-the-street neighbors are Mexicans. There are a lot of people living in that house, mostly young adult males. Are they hanging out, playing music too loudly 'til all hours of the night- rapping yo? Smoking cigarettes, dealing dope? No! Some of them go to work at 3:30 in the morning and don't get home until after dark.

    I can respect that.

    The problem most people have is that they have essentially broken the law to get here and that makes them, unfortunatley, criminals. The fact that they are harmless (and in fact helpful...) criminals does not detract from the fact that blacks (and I don't know a single one of them from Africa...) commit most of the crimes in this country. When the cholos hook up with the *******...well, that is just a bad scene. I suggest you get out now while you still can.

    You would do well to forget about Tupac and Biggie and fih-d cen' and concentrate on your own attitude. The only ones who hate are the people mouthing those raps. It is despicable.

    If you would like to be a fulfilled and contributing member of society, we would love to have you here. But if you just want to blame the white man because you are addicted to crack and can't find a job, then we aren't listening any more.

    Best of luck to you, my friend!

    Here they go again. Whenever someone mentions anything about the illegals it is always the Mexican illegals that start this nonsense in. They know perfectly well, as does everyone else, that they make up a great majority, but not all, of the illegals. Whenever anyone does mention the Mexico illegals it is to make a point about how many have come from there and re the greatest illegally problem or as a rebuttal to their twisting what someone has said about illegal aliens breaking several US laws to be here. A criminal is still a criminal no matter how much they try to whitewash or sugarcoat it.

    I am a white woman, living in California. I am so tired of this immigration issue. There are many Hispanic people that work here. They make maybe $7.00 to $8.00 an hour and they are happy to make that. I am originally from Indiana. I did NOT realize how hard the Hispanic people work until coming here. We as a white race are very spoiled rotten. We at our workplace complain if it is to hot or to cold, the vending machines aren't working properly. We have to make at least $25.00 an hour or more to think we can survive. The Hispanic race is a very hard working race. This government needs to leave well enough alone. If there were no Hispanic people here, think what would happen to your grocery stores. You would not have peaches, pecans, oranges, tomatoes, walnuts so on and so on. The Hispanic people that are here in California work the fields in all kind of weather. We complain because it rains. Like I said before, the white race is very, very spoiled. Go ahead and give me all the flack you like. I have stated the truth. Thank you! I have just read some answers. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. So I say leave well enough alone.

    Mexicans or not, illegal immigrants are about 4% of our population and are 20 to 30 % of the population in our prisons, and I have seen estimates of as high as 50% of the population of California prisons.

    The crime is way disproportionate to the percentage of the population they form.

    On the other hand, since whites are the majority here, it would make sense that they commit the most crimes.

    However, since when are Mexicans not considered 'whites'?

  • 1 decade ago

    I'll take that as a fair question -

    56% of all illegal immigrants are Mexicans, and it is they who came out of the closet to protest against America for the Mexican movement in America - what applies to them will apply to all illegal immigrants. The terrorists have yet to do that - and when they do, they will not be supported either.

    As far as who is in jail - goes beyond immigration because there are more than illegals in jail. In the border states where 4 million illegals cross a year, how could you not expect them to be the highest percentage? Do 4 million blacks a year in your community commit felonies? I doubt it.

    Sadly, it is because Mexicans are the highest number of offenders endangering our borders, by disregarding our laws. When someone knows they are going to commit a crime, and do it anyway, there is still a consequence that must be paid. Illegals from all countries don't like this, and think because they are poor, and Americans have been compassionate towards them twice in the past, it is something Americans owe them. There is one problem, the compassion was abused, and misused, then millions of illegals and their supporters took to our streets when we said no more. They desecrated our anthem, and demanded their language be spoken in our country. I am half Mexican, and I am ashamed to call illegals from my grandparents country my people. Americans are my people, and my father has been forced to work for low wages because he looks full bloodied Mexican, and everyone knows Mexicans will work for less. Illegals, putting their kids into my schools here in Texas filled my schools with gangs from Mexico, and even though my parents through taxes have already paid for my education I must finish it by other means. I wish with all my heart the largest number of offenders were from some other country, not Mexico. These people bring great shame to the Mexican people, and the real Mexican Immigrants of America. Your crime stats are a incorrect. I know that in Texas 96% of our crime is committed by Mexican immigrants, and illegal aliens, 2% are commited by blacks, and 1% is committed by poor whites. I live in Lubbock Texas and you can go to Lubbock's most wanted web site to see it for yourself. The child preditor pages are even worse.

    Its not just you. I always feel I have to defend Hispanics because it seems like they get the blame whenever the issue of illegal immigration comes up. Mexicans are not the only ones that are here illegally. The media just makes it look that way. They will over dramatize everything. The viewers see this and believe everything that is being said.
