Why do Americans hate poor Mexican immigrants?
That leaves illegal immigration as their only choice to immigrate to the US. But people here HATE illegal immigration.
So why does Americans hate poor Mexican immigrants who want to migrate to the US like the people in the Ellis Island story? They made it impossible legally to do so and now they want to kick any of the illegal Mexicans out so essentially they are saying - "We don't want you here!"
Whatever happened to starting a new life in a new country to pursue the American dream like Andrew Carnegie - a poor uneducated Scottish immigrant! ?
