Mexican-American woman destroys Donald Trump in open letter posted on Facebook

Adriana Almanza, a young woman who works in the admission department at Grand Valley State University in Michigan — and whose father is from Mexico – took exception to how Trump characterized people from her father’s place of birth and wrote an open letter to him on Facebook.

In case you forgot how despicably grotesque Donald Trump can be, here’s a little reminder of something he said in his presidential campaign announcement speech:

“When Mexico sends its people they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

She writes:

Dear Mr. Donald Trump,

I’d like to take a minute to introduce you to my father, Raul Almanza. As you so eloquently put it, he is one of the many that Mexico “sends” to this country.

Yesterday, I turned 28 years old and I was blessed to have had the opportunity to share my special day with my dad as it was Father’s Day, as well. In fact, yesterday wasn’t about me at all.. It was about him. Let me tell you why.

30 something years ago, Mexico “sent” my father to the United States.. or “El Norte” as we call it. It is no secret that he came here undocumented, unauthorized, or “illegal” as you call it. He worked his ass off in the fields.. traveling from state to state to find work. He helped provide for his parents and 9 siblings back home. And when I was born, he no longer held the title of just a son, brother, provider, and migrant worker- he finally earned the title of Father.

Raul doesn’t have what you call a “formal education”. He left high school early on to work and contribute to the household financially. But that doesn’t mean anything. When I was young, I would come home where my dad never hesitated to help me with my homework; he instilled in me the importance of education and a degree, even though he didn’t have one. My dad has worked 5-6 days a week since I was a child and I’ve never heard him complain about it one time. He doesn’t drink. He doesn’t use drugs. He is certainly not a criminal, rapist, or drug trafficker, as your speech suggested.

Mr. Trump, in your speech, you claimed that Mexico doesn’t send the U.S. their best. But I beg to differ. If my dad is any representation of the type of people Mexico “sends”, there is no doubt in my mind this country is getting the best. The problem is that you and I have a different definition of “the best”.

I sit here now with a Masters degree and a rewarding career. You know what that means? Absolutely nothing. My entire life the only thing I ever wanted was to make my dad proud. I wanted to be sure he knew that his sacrifices would never be taken for granted. We are not rich in wealth, sir. But we are rich in what matters.. knowledge, culture, & faith. We come from humble beginnings.. and every year we are reminded of that when we travel to Mexico to visit our beautiful family. To us, THAT is what matters.

The best, to me, are those that work hard and still remain humble. That is exactly what my father embodies; that is exactly what the other millions of Mexicans embody.

Perhaps you should get to know more people like my dad; there are millions just like him. Then, you’d see for yourself .. & instead of bashing Mexico.. you’d thank Mexico.. for sending us their “best”.

    Why rant and rave on and on about someone you aren’t interested in becoming president? Instead, discuss who you would like to see in the WH and why.

    Really disapointed with Mr. Trump. I am a follower because i have always admired your intelligence. Boy was i wrong…Mr Trump think twice before u speak of hard working people. Regardless of where they are from…and to attack people from Mexico is a grand mistake. Illegals come from all countries.

  7. American-Mexican for TRUMP2016

    June 24, 2015 at 4:49 am

    So why did she include her family, her father in particular, as what Mr. Trump referred to as “not their (Mexico’s) best” and not in the group he stated as the “some” he assumes “are good people?”
    Selective listening!
    Or could it be that he broke our laws to be here…so she felt it was the first group? “Illegal” as we call it, is a blatant disregard for the laws of our land.. Some laws are for our safety (ie. traffic laws), some are to protect our rights as citizens, The Constitution, etc. I mean, would you say that a thief isn’t a criminal? Major or minor, breaking the law is breaking the law
    And I am an AMERICAN-Mexican, not the other way around. IJS

    For those of saying that he broke the law and he is an illegal. Where did you come from? I dont remember the American Indians or the Mexican government handing out visas! Your ancestor’s came here illegally and killed the indians and stole this land! If you want all the illegals to leave, then how about you lead and leave by example!

    I agree with Jessica . She was on point. She countered all his points by showing him there are others that aren’t bad. Instead she gave an example ie, her father.

    You are so AMERICAN- Mexican. Did you forget that this country was made by immigrants? And you probably have someone in your family that once was an immigrant.

    If you do your research you will see that those “abusing” the system are not the majority Latinos/ Hispanics. They are mainly other races.

    mexican american that is where your culture/ancestry comes from right, Mexico? and do you think Mr. donold trump would adress you as AMERICAN-MEXICAN. well unfortunately this world is filled with misleading people, false idles if you will. and you said it yourself, laws are made to protect the people and you do make a valid point. Traffic laws save lives, but who do immigration laws save? a rich mans pocket? keep them out so that we may continue to enslave them and pay less for their man power and production. please do not so bluntly slur your words without first thinking about what you are going to say. I am ashamed of you. you who chooses to forget your tradition, religion, morals etc. you are what is wrong with the world.

    June 24, 2015 at 8:21 am

    You’re very ignorant. There are some who do just like Americans do, but you can not make such a blunt statement without facts. “Illegals” can not receive walfare or any kind of benefits such as medical, housing or foodstamps. Those who are working with false IDs and SS# are still paying into our taxes without being able to do taxes and get any kind of refund which means those funds continue to circulate.

    Do you remember from history class when the instructor said this country is a melting pot? What makes this country so beautiful and so welcoming despise comments like these is the fact that we are multicultural. We are all “immigrants” and in fact we all came to the United States in search of freedom. Religion freedom, freedom to live a life free of fear, freedom to empress ourselves and yes freedom to hold on to our first language. And none of that make us “bad” or “abusive”. We have come to this country; many running away from crime, others for the “American Dream”, and yes some for the government assistance. But remember we all have at one point in our life’s needed a helping hand. So let’s not be so quick to judge. (Mexicans are not the only people on government assistance). In the article below statistics says; 38.8% of people receiving assistance are white, 39.8% are black, 15.7% are Hispanic, and so on… But regardless this should not determine how we treat or speak of people. We are all Humans and we all only have this one life. So let’s help each other rise and not tear each other down.

    May God bless you! Respectfully, Iliana.

    Take and take? We can’t take anything without woking for it and this country was based on immigrants. Or did we forget who was here first? I can bet anything the people that first came to America saying it was their new “home” didn’t take the time to learn the Native American language and you can sure as hell say that they “take and take” until there was nothing else to take.

    The “Trump” slanderer needs to speak for herself. She is is equally at fault as she tries to portray that being illegal and a felon is accepted in this country. Although her achievements are great, so are those of the American Citizen and every legal immigrant.

    Yes a lot of those that take and take are us born Mexicans.. Or in other words Mexican American. A disgrace to real hard working Mexicans. You may wanna check you info as well because you fail to mention the favt that many anglos and I mean many, also take advantage of the system, for example, there’s an Anglo man outside a freeway peddling for cash, the cop sees him will not reprimand for being there exposing drivers to some danger, same situation outside a freeway, cop drives by sees an elderly man selling flowers or oranges, pretty prepend fruit, etc. He gets pulled to the side gets his merchandise taken away and given a citation. Why? So if these people are trying to earn their money and not peddle as so many others that are U. S. Citizens do….

    What is so bad ’bout what he said? most of it is true !!! First off, Mexico doesn’t send anybody, they cross the borders which is different and yes, most of the people that do it are either extremely poor and ignorant and unable to get a decent job in the US or criminals, YES there are some good people crossing the borders, some hard working honest people and he said it “and some, I assume, are good people,” but that’s not the majority. I’m Peruvian and I know that it’s a fact that many Peruvians that live outside are criminals, there’s a whole community of lowlife scum living in Argentina, but yes there are good people everywhere from all countries. Mexicans should stop being so butt hurt bout something that is true !

    A rant would be a person babbling without making a point.

    She addressed his claim, disagreed with his claim, disproved his claim (by providing an example), offered a suggestion (so he can see for himself where his claim is invalid).
    That is called a response.

    Abuse the system!! Illegal immigrants dont qualify for welfare and other government funded programs due to their legal status but they still pay taxes contrary to popular belief that they dont. They also contribute to the economy by keeping the cash flow going enforcing the economy as consumers and in the workforce. Also a lot of these immigrants have small business and by that creating jobs. The benefits is dollars and contributions to this country are far greater. If you want to find the ones that abuse the system look for American of other race who are legal, speak the language and DONT WANT TO WORK! Those are the ones abusing the system.

  43. Isidro Garcia

    Ignorance must be bliss to Fox “news” viewers posting here. Only politics makes an immigrant “illegal”. They can’t receive food stamps or other government assistance without proper ID. They can’t even see a proper doctor. Their only health care is the hospital emergency room. Get the facts before posting. These Trump groupies are so amusing.

    June 24, 2015 at 3:11 pm

    Well said.. hard working man..maybe…dodging our basic laws…yes. It would have took just a bit of his time to become a legal citizen. I believe we do not have an issue with immigrants coming to America.. We did this when we left England. My Grandmother came from Japan… she got her citizenship, diploma, learned English, all while raising three children. Seems Trump was misread or ear-blocked. the selective hearing is an issue. Not all immigrants are problematic, but the issue here may be implied that new immigrants are taking advantage of our system….and most are.

    I don’t think he was talking about her father or people like her father who came here 20-30 years ago. I am from the San Joaquin Valley where there are thousands of hard working immigrants. I don’t think he was talking about them either, Who I do think he was talking about where he says some are not so good are the gangs that are flooding into America. Google it. Mexico gangs. The first picture you will see is dismembered body parts. They kill 20-30 at a time. Believe it that they are here now. Don’t get offended and don’t throw your dad in with the not so good group. My father’s family came from Mexico. But they were not gangs and killers. I did not get offended because like it or not, this is what we got coming over here. Yeah, it gives the hard workers from there a bad name but it is what it is. Go ahead, google Mexico gangs and see what is seeping into the country.

    What do they take Theresa, Well let me tell you they take the jobs that that most citizens do not want, go to your local corner, see the people peddling for money most of them are not veterans, allot of them are the citizens, tell them where the fields are and to go work there you know what the get offended, I’ve tryed given them food instead of money they won’t take food they want money. Do some leg work for a change, see those fruits and vegetables you eat these people place them in your local market, see the milk and eggs these people work from the break of dawn to late in the evening to do that work. I do understand there are some bad apples but most are hard working people, let me tell you I have children and all three are good kids but neither one of them ever wanted to work in those kind of jobs even during summer when they were young. So please walk on the shoes of some of these people then come back and post your finding. God Bless you.

    Really if you look at the history half of the United States belong to Mexico so technically your ancestors are illegals so that makes you an illegal. I have a lot of Mexican friends and they do work hard and they are taking advantage of. I would like you to work the fields for $5-$6 an hour

    June 24, 2015 at 4:00 pm

    Why be offended if it doesn’t apply to your family? Trump explained we are not getting the best meaning we may have some good and that’s beside the point the bad is what we need to be concerned about around our families and in our country.

    Robin Hood stole from the rich and gave to the poor. That does not change the fact that he was a well intentioned thief. The legal term is fruit of the poisonous tree. No matter how solid your argument is if it is based on a poor foundation the end result does not matter.

    June 24, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    Sorry nice story but he is still a criminal living here illegally. Because he is such a good father and provider does not supercede his illegal activity. To put my thoughts Into perspective. If you were a mob member and you provide for your family and are a good father, doesn’t lend to the fact that you are still a criminal. One might say that the mob member kills and steals and the illegal doesn’t. Or does he? The issue of illegals sneaking into this country is a dangerous situation for those protecting our borders. The people building tunnels and acquiring safe houses are drug smuggler related. The illegals paying for safe passage are feeding money to these drug smugglers. Next the illegals entering into this country are putting severe stress on hospitals who are forced to provide services whether they are here legally or not. This of course raises fees for citizens who pay for medical coverage which they are forced to pay for now. Lastly as the girl in the story points out, the money which the father earned did not go into our economy but sent home to Mexico. In closing I think that while the writer seems to be so sweet and innocent, it does not cover the fact that immigration issues in this country must be addressed and sternly for our own safety, terrorists are also now entering through Mexico, and to steady the economic burden put on our country. I also think that the writer should not worry about our American politics and worry more about Mexican politics and issues concerning drug lords who rule their country, economic issues causing so many to want to or need to come to ours in the first place. Let’s face it what is Mexico doing with their money that they have such a high rate of poverty and unemployment. They have plenty of revenue coming in through their exports in goods and farming and have an incredible tourist economy. This is what should be on the minds of the Mexican citizen not Donald Trump. By the way look at the Mexican immigration laws. 10 times more strict than ours.

    im sorry, but i have to say that comment makes u appear a little ignorant. like if mexicans were the only ones that do that. when it comes to that, people from ALL races do that same exact abuse, so why point a finger at them while ur people are doing just the same. don’t be ridiculous please!

    June 24, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    As do every other rave. If you want to get technical, everyone is a immigrant to an extent or has family that is. This is a mekting pot, trumo is an example of a self entitled rich asshole. I’m native American of anyone should have a problem with immigration it should be my people. But we dont. So please when referring to them keep in mind, I’m pretty sure you have family that immigrated here for a better life somewhere down the line. Which makes tou not only a bigot but also a hypocrite.

    June 24, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    It’s a misdemeanor. All Americans get misdemeanor. Speeding, running a red light etc. Would you compare a speeding person to that of a murder? No! America Mexican estas loco. Just say you’re American from Mexican descent if “titles” matter that much to you. Oh and make sure to correct those that call themselves ‘muricans.

    I understand the terminology, regarding labels, as of a thief being a criminal, and yes! a person without legal papers being called “illegal” and falling under the “criminal” labeling … that being said, when he calls and generalizes “ALL” Mexicans are rapists, drug dealers, etc.., that’s when I have a problem with it, and feel the need to call BS on it. Mind you, when he claims “all” Mexicans, he really is referring to a whole community of illegal, hard working individuals who cross the border (which the majority are hardworking) and come from several countries (not only Latin America), and get this, then he notices his mistake and tries to retract from his original statement by saying “some” he assumes “are good people?” but yet, pretty much generalized the term Mexicans as in every Latino of Hispanic background that comes from Mexico, which is a beautiful country full of wonderful and smart people.

    In conclusion, the Donald may NOT have broken the law, as in entering the country illegally, (I assume he’s done worst things), as money hungry as he is. We all know he was born in this country, but his ancestors sure weren’t.

    You have a very bias view because without a doubt you had very good parenting but I would suggest is with your education it should be no problem at all working with the border patrol customs and see the other side and the logistics of having to deal with the everyday life endangering job are border patrols agents deal with until then please shut up

    This young woman defends her father for not being a legal citizen because he’s her father. But being an American of Mexican descent myself.. unlike this young woman, my grandparents and parents came from Mexico to the U.S. LEGALLY as did my husbands parents and grandparents. My husbands family was poor and worked the fields too. The hard working ethic, intelligence and goodness to always obey the laws of the land carried over to their children. We will NEVER EVER understand those who choose to arrive and then remain “undocumented” as you call it (illegal) when… they just don’t have to. Truth is.. they really don’t have to. As you have read.. I know of which I speak.

    Mr Trump needs to retract his statement. It is so absurd that he has ruled out any votes from the Hispanic population. I am not Hispanic but I know that Mexicans built most of the SW USA doing jobs that Caucasian whites don’t want to do. That includes providing food for Mr Trump. 99.99% of the people that do these jobs are not rapists. They are some of the “best” who have overcome unreal obstacles to survive and have done it honestly.

I suppose the problems us Mexicans are bringing to you is you not being able to handle your businesses financially filing for bankruptcy over 4 times. I bet half these companies you run have minorities working for you. You have members in your family who are Jews. Are you discriminating against them? I don’t care how much money he has how many hotels or casinos he runs he just made things worse for himself!!!

    The very part of what you wrote is fact,no color or race bashing merely the truth. What bothers me most is that people over look the legal issue, Selling drugs is a crime, anything purchased with drug money is illegal, birthing children in a country that you chose not to enter legally should be treated the same. Mexico will not grant citizenship to illegal entries, nor will they provide any assistance, not even education. Yet demand that America do as such.

  88. Greg White

    June 24, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    I agree 100%. Adriana you are taking what trump said too much to heart. Trump was speaking in general not directly accusing you or your father for that fact, Is it because that you and your father feel guilty that you felt you had to protect yourselves and jump on the defensive wagon so quickly. It is what it is. your father is surely a good man and I’m sure it was really hard to maintain a large family. My hats off to him. but… the fact remains that he came to this country Illegally. he broke the law which makes him actually a criminal. I really hate to say that but it is what it is. This Country has Laws and if you want to live here you have to abide by our laws as we have to abide by your Countries laws, let me ask you this..during all those years your father worked here to support the family did he ever once pay his taxes on his earnings? Probably not and if so that makes him a criminal again for tax evasion. again it is what it is Im sorry to say that you have no right even opening your mouth about this, and i don’t care how many hits you have gotten on your story, you never said how many were against you or with you, I,m positive that over 60% of those hits are saying the same as I am and thats being nice. so stop padding yourself on the back so hard you might just choke to death. Happy Fathers Day to your Dad, He surely is an awesome father.

    It’s unbelievable how some of you only read that Adriana’s father was working here illegally. Oh wait, yes I can believe it… the world has some ignorant people. Just because she said he came here to work some 30 years ago, doesn’t me he was illegal. My father was “sent” from Mexico some 50 years ago, but that doesn’t mean he was here illegally. He obtained a work visa and eventually became a U.S. citizen. Adriana may have left that part out of her letter and may not have been relevant to what she was writing. The “point” to her letter was that her father worked his ass off for his family and was a respectable human being; not a criminal, drug dealer, rapist or lazy-ass collecting welfare. This goes out to those of you who didn’t get that part of Adriana’s letter.

I will tell u this we all for the most part work how many Mexicans do u see standing on the corner asking for change ?? Not that many but I sure see a boat load of other nationalities .. And FYI if u at all watch the news u will see that no only Mexicans commit crime!!! some of u have nerve and probably need to sit down somewhere and take a good look this man is sharing fathers struggle and the outcome of it ..some of ur parents haven’t had half the battle !!! And just so u know u sound so ignorant and to top it off probably don’t even have half of the education he has !! I have no idea why people think there race is better than anyone else’s !!

    I believe 30 years ago, a former president offered some type o_ amnesty. My father, like the writer’s father, came illegally into the US. But he not only worked but learned the English language and history. He loves George Strait and played Kenny Rodgers and C.C.R. Music all my life. He and my mother soon became an American citizens. I see nothing wrong in the outcome if he did this to become a productive member of society. But Mr. Trump is not talking about people like my Dad. He is talking about the overwhelming number of numbnuts crowding our jails and littering our streets. They live in the upstairs apartment of my building and bang that horrid music at high decibels. I can’t stand them and wish they would get deported. Ungrateful sons of guns.

    If I’m not mistaken, 30 years ago the president offered amnesty to many. My father, like the lady’s father, came to the U.S. He was not sent by Mexico. He not only worked, but also mastered the English language. He and my mother soon became citizens of this country. But Mr. Trump is not speaking about my father. He is talking about the numbnuts who come here illegally and wreak havoc. They live in the upstairs apartment of my building. They do not wish to get educated and trash the very place that has given to them what they would not have in Mexico. They bang that hideous music at high decibels and throw their beer cans and cigarette butts all over the front of my apartment. I sincerely wish they would get deported back home because they are a nuissance to the American dream. Whether Mr. Trump was referring to all Mexicans, I really don’t care but he has a point. I wasn’t the least bit offended. I just won’t vote for him. That’s what elections are for. And you must be an American citizen to vote anyway.
    “They” are overcrowding the jail cells, littering our streets, destroying what this country was founded on. Perhaps Mr. Trump should have thought before he made that generalized speech. At least my Dad would have chosen a better choice of words, which makes the difference between a Mexican-American who came here illegaly and a schmuck like Mr. Trump.

Yes there is a lot of really good hard working mexicans here, but unfortunately bad ones as well. We tend to look at the negative perspective over the positive. And I believe his point is mostly the crossing over illegally to our country. Most legal immigrants are educated and professional, illegal however are not. Is just an opinion.

    All these people pointing out the fact that her father entered the States illegally 30 years ago, that makes him a criminal. And possibly not paying his taxes, and tax evasion is criminal offense. Ever hear that saying, “when you assume, you make an ass out of yourself”? All of a sudden everyone has their degree in politics…. Who’s to say that her father is now a resident or perhaps a citizen after so many years? My grandfather entered the States ilegally 45 years ago, and was granted his citizenship 3 years ago. He paid his taxes and has contributed to society, never asked the system for a hand out. I’ve worked for the welfare office, and I have seen many different nationalites seeking government assistance. It’s ignorant to sterotype Mexicans or any race for that matter on sponging off America. By reading this letter, I highly doubt this young lady would put her father on blast only to get deported. Besides, in order to travel to his homeland, he’d need to be legally allowed permission to return to the States after his leave. My husband is an imigrant from Scotland in which he entered legally to the States. However, that would be overlooked because he’s white, right? People have nerve to judge…

    SO what language would that be .. Navajo, Hopi, Paiute, If the real American Citizens do not have a problem with anyone speaking their language why should you.. After all America is unique in a sense that its made of immigrants who the real Americans allowed to adapt into their world ..including your self somewhere down your family tree your roots truly are not American

    I share the same as Adriana. My father left Mexico when he had the best job in Mexico. He had worked for Pemex that’s the gasoline in Mexico. Anybody that know what I’m talking about knows that working for Pemex is probably one of the best jobs to have in Mexico. My father had his own plant and workers. When my mom and dad decided to leave Mexico because my brother and I were USA citizens my dad left the company with just 2 more years to retire and receive full benefits. My dad left in the USA with nothing in his hand we came here lived in a lil office until
    My dad found full time work. My brother now serves our country proudly I work in the medicine business and my sister got we masters. All very successful. Just shame how out of 10 Mexican families only two will come here and not ask for a dime from the government while the other 8 want every penny. I understand that U.S. Just not Mexican families that do this. But if your going to be proud of your culture represent it the right way. Work hard just like our ancestors did pancho villa Emiliano Zapata the Aztecs the Mayans. If you want to consider yourself of Mexican decent. I rather be poor than to ask for money. Because we really don’t know what Donald trump would had become if he was illegal or from another country. He might want to sneak in also or be corrupt. As he is already.

    Do you have any idea what the legal process to becoming “legal” entails? I’m pretty sure you don’t. Did you know that your federal government PROVIDES an ITIN number to illegals to pay their taxes? Do you even know what an ITIN number is without having to Google it? You probably don’t know either. By the way, you have to pay a fee to get it. I know hundreds of undocumented people that pay taxes EVERY single year. Don’t spew out and repeat what you hear others say about illegals. They probably know more about your government laws than you do youself and/or many of its legal citizens. She took it to heart because she felt offended. Had he said something negative and demeaning about the LBGT community just as he did about Mexicans in general, I’m sure many would have replied to his comment. Just because you are not part of a community or you dont fall under the category doesn’t mean you won’t react to it.

He works 2 full time jobs and has been doing that since we meet 25 years ago. I dont care for DT and the idiotic things he has to say. The only time he’s for immigration is when it involves the women he has kids with,because their from 3rd world countries and practically bow down to this jerk. I salute all the hard working men and women that make this country successful. ” QUE VIVA LA RAZA!!”

    Why this Mexican and American woman should feel guilty? Why??? I am 99% positive that she and her father have done more for America than you. I am pretty sure that her taxes are higher than yours! Thanks to her awesome father who came illegally as one of your ancestor!

    June 25, 2015 at 12:23 am

    I think it is important to point out the inaccuracies in Mr. Trump’s shameful diatribe. In my conversation with the UN Ambassador at the United Nations about a year ago after an NGO Briefing where he was a featured panelist, he explained to some UN NGO Representatives that the Mexicans who come here are the ambitious ones, the go-getters: that they are in high demand. He described several conversations when his car was stopped at a light in the northwest and middle west from managers “When can you send me 15,000 Mexican workers?” was the common request. So Mr. Trump’s assumption is untrue. Many of Mexican heritage like my niece-in-law have high born relatives, Mitt Romney! Not only that, I have a friend who actually moved with her family as a migrant worker, finished law school and now has a brilliant career. So assumptions that you made are simply lies. Your sources are incorrect. Hopefully, you will wake up and smell the coffee!

For people like those you eat fresh fruit, good coffee, good burgers and so on.. and for you info. They don’t pay taxes because our gov. Dont let them work legal. Wake up and stop the hate. By the way im a citizen.

But if you want to be white washed go for it. I agree with Adriana my mother is working her ass off to give me a great future and im close to giving her everything she deserves. So don’t you dare say that our parents broke a law because they broke it for us to have a better future!

    Ok, so the illegal man from Mexico who was driving drunk, ran a light, and killed a mother and daughter in Brewster NY he was good character. The man from Mexico hear illegal who raped a woman got deported only to re enter the U.S. To get pulled over and kill a policeman only to have Mexico fight to have him deported again. Another good character. Here’s the issue if you enter the U.S. Illegal, you are breaking the law which classifies you as a criminal right off the bat. This woman’s father was a criminal taking jobs from Americans to send money home to his family not even spend it here to add salt to the wound. Her story only proves more to the point of the need for secured borders.

    Get your facts right illegal or not illegal you need to pay your taxes every year, and any time you buy something. Yes, this country has laws that are broken as I write this post to you by those in power and aren’t getting any jail time. This is coming from a graduate student who has studied hundreds of laws and how this county truly works. Do yourself a favor and do some research, you can start by researching the consequences of what Free Trade brought to third world countries and Mexico. Have a nice day.

    30 years ago, Mexico wasn’t filled with the problems it has today. 30 years ago, your father came across the border illegally and made something of himself. 30 years ago your father showed the character that makes him great. Today, large percentages of the people coming across the border are criminals and can’t hold a candle to your father. Thank god you have him. Now, get your facts straight. Trump was clearly talking about the caliber of people coming across now, not 30 years ago.

    Seems a good number of people have forgotten this countries’ heritage, as well as our own Declaration of Independence. As for heritage, unless you are Native American, you are an immigrant, or descended from such. So, all of your ancestors are criminals? My earliest known ancestors here in the States were of Scottish descent, sent here in 1590 as indentured servants for fighting against the (English) Crown. Others came on their own, searching for that which was so truthfully and eloquently written in our Declaration of Independence. “…that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the persuit of Happiness. So you would have that changed to “all men who aren’t Mexican”? Why not just scrap that big chunk of copper France gave us that we call ” The Statue of Liberty” and use the proceeds to buy every conservative white person a hot dog and a little flag. No? Then perhaps we should just change what is written on her plaque to finish “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, unless they are Mexican, we don’t want them here.”

    Well interesting discussion, I just read too many comments most of them are from ignorant, hateful people that just feel inferior to other races. I am a Mexican-American and when I ask my parents why I was born here, their answer was, we just wanted the best care and the best doctors, but none of that was given for free. My parents paid for those services. They were successful business owners in Mexico. It wasn’t because it was cool for my parents to have an American, Mexican, European son it was for convenience, and with that said. I travel a lot and I found that being an American has its inconveniences. When I disclose in other countries my nationality they treat me different( bad). So lets get our heads out of our asses and respect other peoples dreams and let them fight for a better life just like I am sure your illegal descendants, unless u r a full blood Native Ameeican,entered into this country, to live the American dream.

    ugh people like adriana are sooooo annoying. your father has been here ILLEGALLY! so he worked in the fields and supported your family, big f’g deal…a LOT of people MIGRATED here and did the same…LEGALLY…my own parents had to get smuggled out of their homeland, left everything and and a cushy established life behind and had to start from scratch coming to the states. Raised 5 kids, no english, no education and 15 years laters own 3 homes, 5 educated adults, and teenage grandkids…they did so LEGALLY. those of us who are “DOCUMENTED”, we work hard, our jobs may not be in the fields but practically half our pay goes to taxes, your dad worked in the fields where he kept every dime he earned…so STFU about this whole stupid ordeal. I highly doubt (as much as i am NOT a fan of trump) that he was targeting you specifically. the only reason you would feel compelled to write something like that is because theres some feeling of guilt behind it that you feel like you need to defend yourself. as for the title of the article where it says destroyed, I’m pretty sure your one letter didn’t mean a damn thing to him. He can still go to sleep at night, but not your dad…your dad has to constantly worry about one day potentially getting deported. people need to just stop being cry babies and taking things personal, that includes all races, religions, etc. also trump, you shouldn’t, run for president…not too many people like you and you’ve been bankrupt FIVE TIMES…you can’t manage your money, you def can’t manage a country. -out.

We had like her father Mexicans who were wanting to give themselves and their family a better living with higher wages in the US. Trump is doing us all a favor for telling us what is coming across our borders now the drug Cartels are also a threat to this girl and her father Raul Almanza. Too bad with her AMERICAN education she did not get much intelligence out of it. Wonder what Hillary offered her to trash Donald Trump. The dirty Clinton Politics as usual is alive and well.

    I was born in Mexico, enlisted in the Marine Corps while I only a resident (not a U.S. citzen) and honorably served for 25 years. I have been to war. I have sacrificed. My children lived without their mother for months at a time while I was deployed. I am an immigrant. I am proud of my heritage. I am also proud to be Mexican American. I fly the US Flag outside my home proudly.

It is what it is and those are facts. Sorry but if runs I will be surprised if he wins.

    June 25, 2015 at 4:26 am

    People like you are the kind of people that make Mexicans look bad. You are disgracing your roots. You think just because you were born here makes you more American than Mexican. When people see your last name or the color of your skin they don’t say your “American-Mexican” they say oh he’s Mexican. People like you are the reason why Mexicans and “American-Mexicans” are treated unequally, because our own people don’t try to help each other out they dig us deeper into a hole. If your ancestors heard what you were saying they’d be ashamed of you. Why bring up that laws are for our safety I mean that’s common sense or are you implying Mexicans are are dangerous? If you were an “illegal” immigrant I’m sure you would not be saying these things. Yes immigrants are breaking the law but some laws are meant to be broken. You think women would be voting right now if the law was broken? Or how about breaking the law that only white people can vote? Should that not have been broken too? If that law wouldn’t have been broken you think you would have the right to vote right now? Back then Mexicans weren’t aloud to vote even if they were “American-Mexicans” they were still considered Mexican. So next time you say your “American-Mexican” think about that.

    that is all America ask is come here legally and become citizens, speak your language at home but not at work or school, keep your customs if they are with in our laws, but don’t force them on us. if you have a problem with the USA buying land take that up with the people who sold it to us.

  203. Victoria Valdez-Yebra

    June 25, 2015 at 4:59 am

    Greg White, Please get your facts straight In the early 70’s people that were here illegaly would not make their tax returns because the IRS back then would not issue a special pin number like they do now days but they sure had deductions taken from every check earned and never got a cent back so millions of dollars would be deducted and would go unclaimed. Now a special pin number is issued and people that don’t have a legal status can still do their taxes and pay. My Father came to the US legally in the early 50’s through a “Bracero” sponsorship program and when he brought us /his family we all came with visas so we never broke the law like you say. He never received any government assistance . Heck not even unemployment benefits and he earned those. Nobody is stealing anything as you put it.

    June 25, 2015 at 5:02 am

    American Mexican you are pathetic! Do us a favor drop the Mexican. I am sure you had some of your relatives come here illegally! You wouldn’t be here otherwise. I am a fifth generation Mexican-American and the only reason I say that is to let you know that I am proud of my Mexican roots and thank my Mexican ancestors for sacrificing by coming to this country to give future generations a better life. Start educating yourself that is why all immigrants came to this country.

    First and foremost i am in aww by your words… sorry but i do not know of any self respecting MEXICAN AMERICAN that would agree to a certain extent. Now the reason i stated Mexican American, in my option is to acknowledge from where one comes from to where one is born. My father like many others is from Mexico just like im going to assume either your mother or father, or maybe even both are from. With that in mind i was born here in the states, Chicago to be exact. First and foremost im Proud to be a Chicagoan and wouldn’t have it any other way, but if it wasn’t for my father’s action to come to this county legally/ illegally i would not be here and neither would you. I have a few friends who are Mexican Americans just like you and me who share your same thoughts…. and some how they come off as self hating Mexicans or “Minute Men” as i like to call them to the lack of understanding. To me, people who share your thoughts on this type of matter have no sense of ones own culture or knowledge of background…. in others words, a very small minded American mentality who have no knowledge of the world outside our boreds..

    That’s the problem, generalizing a whole group of people is wrong. This is where problems arise. And I’m sure her father has already got himself his documents or else he wouldn’t risk traveling to Mexico. Many come here illegally because it can take up to decade if not more, depending on a case by case basis. They may enter illegally but a good majority do it with every intention of getting their papers. For Trump to generalize a whole group of people is dangerous. I’m sure if he wasn’t white and generalized whites as all backwards thinking, incestuous, gun toting, hillbillies, you would have taken offense to it.

    Your MEXICAN American bro unless your American parents migrated to MEXICO and Had you there. And if you do have MEXICAN blood in you, no matter what generation you were born here, you still have ‘ILLEGAL ‘ as you guys call it, MEXICAN blood in you.. Think about it.. So it is the other way around.. IJS..

    It is also illegal to hire those migrant undocumented farm workers but rarely do we hear of Americans complaining about all the fat cats making a profit off of them.

    Would you complain if an apple cost $2 instead of 50 cents because the farmers had to pay higher wages to legal employees?

  219. Steve Seith

    June 25, 2015 at 6:16 am

    The article did not say whether or not he became legal or not through any of the amnesty programs. It only stated he came here 30 years ago illegally. There are statutes of limitation on law breaking. He could have become a legal immigrant 25 years ago for all any of us know.

    Greg White… your ancestors came to this country illegally and ripped off the lands from Native Americans. Adriana is correct. Trump’s speech is offensive, as is what you replied. And to answer your ignorant question illegals do pay taxes, social security, etc. Which they will never benefit from- but you will. And then you compliment her on her amazing father? How rediculous. Close your mouth yourself before you choke to death.

    You say you are an American Mexican right? That mwansmeans that either your parents or grandparents are from Mexico. You are in this country therefore that meanomeans you ancestors broke the law as well making them criminals as you state. If they wouldn’t have broken the law you wouldn’t be here. Please do go educate yourself about your culture before you speak so little of it.

    People enter this country illegally every day…and it is not only Mexicans…he has been here for 30 years and he will not be deported…get over it…Adriana Almanza wrote eliquently and proudly about the struggles of Mexicans in this country…we come from strong family values, we are taught to work hard and be productive members of society, we take pride in our heritage, we value the right to a free education, and most of all we are committed by love and honor to our families to be successful…Donald Trump knows nothing about thise things…we are prideful people, and we are humble people…guess he doesn’t realize that Hispanics are the Majority in this country and we have a right to vote as well!

    I would love to see the U.S. survive one day without Mexican immigrants. I’d like to see all these people that complain about immigrants doing the work that immigrants do. How are you going to call Mexican immigrants criminals? How are you going to compare living in a country you were not born in to killing and raping? If that is the case then everyone living in the United States is a criminal according to U.S. laws or Native Americans.
    Every single country and ethnicity has its rapist, killers, gang bangers, and drug lords; however, every country has wonderful, hardworking, kind, caring, and outright amazing people. So don’t you dare blame Mexicans for all the bad and evil in the United States!

    Another bad mexican over here. Father worked two jobs as long as I could remember, never even fathomed the idea of welfare. Now he owns two homes, a few cars, and his four kids all have the bachelors and one just completed his masters. What a drain to society. Right?

    “and don’t speak our language”… Could someone tell me what our official language is? Last I checked, the US does not recognize an official language, and actually REQUIRES information to be printed in multiple languages if a predominant non-english language exists in the geographic region.

  237. Pat

    June 25, 2015 at 1:29 pm

    Absolutely agree with Aly. When Adriana said her Father wasn’t a criminal, coming to the USA illegally is a crime. It’s like entering ones home without permission.
    What I can’t understand is, why don’t the Mexican People fix their homeland & make it strong. What is right, about coming to a Country that has fought, worked hard & sacrificed to become better & they just step in & reap the benefits? They also want to change the laws to their liking. If they are good about, law making, why not use them in their Country?
    Yes, there are Good Mexican People, as there is some good in all groups, but you can’t pick & chose which laws you don’t like & break them to meet your own situation.

Shit even the police break the law on a daily basis! You don’t see them speeding down the streets for no reason! The people that are against this women’s response are probably a little racist yourself

  248. Richard

    June 25, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    @Shawn as you mentioned Shawn, I guess it may be a crime to be here illegally for 30 years , but did you forget about your ancestors that came here illegally stayed for hundreds of years and raped, murdured thousands, took their religion and beliefs then made it a law to come here when this land was owned by people who viewed this land as a free land for everyone. I think you have no say when it comes to coming here illegally. Your people by far most committed more of a chrime so you have no say.

    Someone in your ancestry had to migrate “illegal” to make the rest of your generation citizens of this nation. The natives to this land are the Native Americans and Mexicans. Not only did euro decent slaughtered the native americans to steal land to create a new country, but the US also went to war in land that belong to Mexico, which is now US soil. All those Mexicans in Texas, Southern California etc are in their NATIVE LAND!

    Puttihn it into your terms sweet heart, there is a history of crime in your ancestry TOO!

    You are so right what about the killing that happen in high school,cops ready on the trigger ,and much more what race is that again? Yes, Mexicans do sell drugs and comment crimes but so do all the races. Acknowledged what’s fair.Why don’t you Mr trump think about the people who provide food for you and your family.Not anybody wants to do this extremely hard work by working in fields ,packing houses,traveling state to state but they also need to put food on the table. I am sorry but no one here wants that job otherwise the job market would not be the way it is. Just because people come to the states doesn’t always mean the worst. And all Mexicans are not just the only illegals in the states

    Nope, he is not a particular citizen having a beer with friends, ranting redneck brains secretions barbecuing in his backyard, he is a candidate for a position in which his particular judgement and actions can affect millions of human beings. And as a candidate, in order to charm redneck joe he is showing how dangerous he might become to Mexican and other migrating people from Latin America and the third world in general. If that foot-to-throat choice of words there was a strategy to distance himself from a perception of a “liberal NYC folk”, he is very ill adviced.
    Yep, he can rant all he want, and responsible citizens can, and must bury him…

  258. Brandenn

    June 25, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    Are you serious!!!! To get your citizenship is simpler then getting a G.E.D SERIOUSLY. All them years undocumented. BRAVO for beating the system. It still didn’t make it right according to the law of the land. Maybe heroic. This is America nothing is free unless you slip under the radar and become an opportunist. Don’t get me wrong if I had many kids, 5 plus then I would do what it takes to feed them. But i wouldn’t have five or more kids in a poor country knowing I can’t provide….logically I would have to become a criminal. An iiligal. Don’t come to America looking for simpathy. I’m black not African American just a black man of slave stock meaning my ansesters died building this so called free country. Infact so did alot of other races. But they all have been documented read the history books. For anyone to come to America work and get benifits then send money back to the country they abandoned is insulting for many of us that pay taxes! Kiss my black ass and educate yourself and stop Bitching about being illigal your are if you don’t have proper Identification or can’t speak the language of the land

  259. Licha

    June 25, 2015 at 5:52 pm

    Yes Juan, I agree my parents immigrated from Mexico LEGALLY. I also have family in Mexico who would love to come to the U.S. legally but it’s so expensive and the process so long that they’ve given up hope. Why should people come here illegally and be given legal status when they have broken the law? And by the way, you really don’t know who is crossing the border. I am happy that you are a successful young woman, but it’s wrong to be rewarded when you don’t follow the law or why bother having laws.

  260. Ana

    June 25, 2015 at 6:18 pm

    Adriana,
    You’ve made me cry…
    I’m Mexican and live in Mexico, a county that I adore and proud to belong to. When I travel to California, where I have family, I feel even prouder to be Mexican.
    I see my people working and prospering and that makes me happy.
    Beggars in the street of L.A. are not Mexican, they are locals with full capacity of working both legaly and physicaly. What’s is going on with Americans???
    We can find the best of Mexicans here in Mexico as well as in the United States of a America, “land of the free”.
    Mil Felicidades a tu papá y a todos los papás mexicanos que luchan por sus hijos sacrificando sus vidas cruzando la frontera.

  261. Ana

    June 25, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    That is simply not true; Mexicans need a visa to enter the territory, and it’s horribly difficult ti get it, but others that enter legally, stay longer than permitted and abuse the system.
    Ignorance is bliss

  262. Mike Curley

    June 25, 2015 at 6:28 pm

    I agree. Her father came here illegally. While working in the fields for 5-6 days a week, taking a job away from someone who is here legally. I’m curious as to how she paid for college. Most likely monies that could have gone to someone here legally. I’m glad you have your masters degree, at the expense of maybe my kids. You get given all kinds. My grandparents came here the LEGAL way. Grandfather became a successful builder while loosing 3 of his fingers to faulty tools however ended up building a nice little nest egg with 3 homes and paying taxes to support folks like your dad and you.

    Although I don’t agree with Trump on many levels, he is right on that point. Build a wall, a huge one! and make Mexico pay for it and free up our border patrols chasing them all down. He was also right in saying “you don’t send us your best”. Being here illegally is not the best we can get. Working the fields is not what is making this country get better. I don’t consider myself to be a “insert country you came from” American. I’m not Mexican American, African American. I’m an a second generation american with no college degree providing for myself and my family.

  263. Dianne Williams

    June 25, 2015 at 6:30 pm

    Thank you Greg…so many seem to disregard the fact that immigrants can become legal citizens of this country. They problem is they don’t do this. They come here, live and work hard to make a living and then think this justifies their existence legally in our country. It does not!!! Why did her father not become a legal citizen? If he did, then I would say he could be commended for bringing his family to the US.

  264. Jessy

    June 25, 2015 at 6:30 pm

    Just to point out, illegal immigrants from Mexico do very little to benefit our economy. In fact most use and abuse the welfare programs we have enacted. They are not our tax base and more companies hire then because they are the cheaper labor force, which in turn screws everyone else over. Please don’t be blinded be socialist propaganda where white America is the main issue because “we stole the land first.” If it truly effects your conscious then maybe you should emigrate back to the homeland of your ancestrial roots. And I am a Mexican-AMERICAN.

  267. George

    June 25, 2015 at 6:52 pm

    If that’s the case, why is it that this so called criminals are getting taxed on every single dollor they earn by our government just like any other U S citizen? Do you relize that if all mexican imigrants were to be deported the state of california the so called “Bread Basket of the World” would most likely collapse. Last time i checked, i don’t recall seeing much more then a handfull of American-Mexicans, or Americans out in those fields that produce food for the entire nation and world.

    Adriana. I am the son of a hard working Mexican immigrant mother and father.unlike your dad. Mine went to the American embassy, requested citizenship and waited five years to qualify. He took the medical tests to make sure he wasn’t bringing diseases into the US. He brought a skill that would make him a productive US citizen. He moved here with my mom and they worked as hard as your dad except they paid taxes to support their adopted country. They raised 4 boys to love their culture and homeland but more importantly, to know they are American by birth. Now as a police officer here in Chicago I can accept your position that your dad is “one of Mexico’s best” but guess what? For every Mexican like your dad and my dad, I arrest 10 drug dealers, gang bangers, rapists, murderers, cartel mules, prostitutes, drunk drivers and wife beaters every day. want to known what they all have in common? None of them are even supposed to be here. Illegal aliens, every single one.

Anyone who does support him should be labeled a racist. All this BS about how hispanic’s abuse the system are nothing more than distractions from the real issues. But Sheeple like to jump on the band wagon of lies instead of addressing the REAL issues. I guess he hates Mexicans because one was probably doing Ivanna while he was married. Why else would someone have so much hate for Mexicans.

Oh and btw I’m an immigrant’s daughter and can speak, read and write 2 languages fluently.

    Do you remember Ross Perot? When he learned that a lot of Mexican IT talents were moving north, he was not of the guys that closed the border to them… instead he founded some IT companies in Guadalajara and with this he catches the talents to work in their own country (but sadly, with the mexican currency).. I think Trump could do better if he tries to invert some money in our country and give Mexicans work in their own country, at least is more reasonable than to blatantly speak against another country.

    Del represents the kind of people that would rather degrade the people making comments than face the facts. It is easy to put down an intelligent comment, and ignore the facts. I don’t doubt he sleeps very well in his ignorance., The truth is we have a a problem and it needs to be talked about openly, even if Del doesn’t like to do that.

    It’s people like you that make hate so easy to feel. Being a certain race, internationally or sex does not ” make ” you do something illegal or legal . It’s the person responsible for their actions . It’s the person !!!!! Not your race or you ethnic background . Its like you not that you are white or black or whatever that makes you a dumbass, it’s you, you’re doing that all on your own .

And FYI, USA is a country of immigrants, and California, New Mexico, Texas and Arizona used to be part of Mexico, so many Mexican that live there is because their families lived there when it was still part of Mexico.

    That is such a cliche red neck ignorant thing to say. Who’s talking about hand outs? If you’re referring to the woman’s letter’ she obviously stated that her father WORKED very hard for what he obtained. Not everyone who comes to this country expects to be handed anything. You probably have this misguided notion that “our country” has been the United states since time began. When in fact this country was founded by imagrants. It is WE who have been handed this country through the hard work of imagrants. I bet you even think Jesus is american. Or that the moon is U.S.A. property.

    I am mexican and my ancestors had freely traveled to Texas and back since 1723 when the first Governor/Capitan of Texas was Juan Olivan Rebolledo in 1723 and was also Oidor of Real Audencia of Guadalajara, Mexico (Nuevo Espana). Our ancestors on our family tree are related to the wife of Juan Olivan Rebolledo as she is mexican born. In 1824, the Mexicans that inhabited South Texas since 1723 had signed for Texas to be a province of Mexico under “Adhesion Al Federalism” which makes if Federal Law of Mexico. What Sam Houston did in separating Texas from Mexico was illegal since he violated the rights of the mexicans in Texas that had predated him and voted to be a province of Mexico.

Or is is that the laws that american police apply towards others can’t be applied towards americans when they are in our latino countries? There is a lot of american johns that go to our latino countries looking for prostitutes

    Donald Trump also did not do his homework in regards to trade. Japan has the most investments in Mexico at 2 billion dollars. It was Japan and Germany that has investments in Mexico that helped the economy of Mexico. The USA has most of their (manufacturing) in China.

    In the part of Mexico where we are from we have the world’s first and second largest deposits of silver! But so many Canadian mining companies are in the area taking the gold and silver in Mexico. They get in conflicts with mexican land owners who get relocated, properties expropriated or forced off if the land owners protest. Canadian mining has extracted 410 tons of gold alone from Mexico in 10 years as a comparison that Spain took 190 tons of gold in 300 years. Gold and silver is worth alot more per ounce than drugs Mr. Trump!!!!

    Why don’t we jail the people who offer jobs? Better yet, why won’t Americans take those jobs instead? I think some of us have become used to privilege and, even more so, love to scream from the sidelines. Josh, I bet none of these examples you’ve listed have ever affected you nor actually mattered to you except to incite hatred and troll (moronically, I may add) people who actually care. You use the same examples of the same 2 immigrants who everyone’s heard about on the national news. Thousands of people are raped and murdered every year by Americans but I bet I wouldn’t see you blasting these people on any platform. This woman’s story does not strengthen the argument for more secure borders, it paints the picture of a man, just like yourself, who is so far removed from reality it takes someone with common sense and a Facebook page to tear him down and make him look like an idiot.

    June 25, 2015 at 10:44 pm

    Thank you officer Joe Aguirre, for your service and the fact that you put your life on the line to protect us from criminals. Yes, we do not know who is crossing the border and yes they’re not all from Mexico but they are crossing from Mexico. The majority of illegal people are crossing from Mexico. I live in California and the majority of people that are crossing need medical, education and subsidies in order to live and they do get it at the cost of hard working tax payers. I am not against legal immigration because yes the majority of america’s ancestors came from somewhere including my folks who came here legally and had to be sponsored by someone who committed to taking care of them until they got on their feet. I have stayed in Mexico and I agree the government is corrupt but please don’t come here demanding things from this government just like I would never think of (because it would never happen) demanding things from your government and people. Please don’t try to justify wrong because it doesn’t work for me. Follow the law just like I am expected to do in your country.

    What you say is so true and besides so many of these states were Mexico territory to begin with I am a Mexican American and my grandfather came here to work at the shipyards with proper documents as his wife and children waited in Mexico for 12 yrs before their papers were finally approved and by the time they legally came into this country my grandfather had a successful restaurant and own his house out right. And became a US citizen ,After having a heart attack and two amputations of both his legs in his later years still had retired he went and graduated with a highschool diploma at an adult school and wasn’t a drunk, or criminal or peeve. It’s not like all other races don’t have their own criminals or problematic people he also owned two plantations deed in hand and signed them over to his brothers in Mexico who’s children are lawyers and doctors. I am proud to say that I am Mexican American, Apache Indian, French, and Spaniard. We all are and come from far away lands however we had come from the very land that was robbed from my ancestors. We believed we could share the land and coexist peacefully.

I wish the borders were closed and everybody wishing to migrate had to come through a Ellis Island type facility… and NOT several… Just One… in the middle of no where attached to nothing but the bottom of the sea….

    Those illegals are from central america that get the “other than mexican status” where they get to stay for an immigration hearing. Mexicans get immediate deportation. Immigration from mexico has gone done due to economy improving. Mexico has public health insurance from Mexicans i Look up: “Mexico achieves universal health coverage, enrolls 52.6 million people in less than a decade” Speaking of legal immigration? Go to Silicon Valley and see how many people from India there are there with Visas who work for less for high tech companies

    I don’t think this is about a run for presidency for Trump. I think it is a giant PR campaign, just like the last time. He is ensuring that he won’t win by saying the most ridiculous statements he can and by virtue of saying them, he also ensures that everyone is talking about him. ‘All News is good News’ in his eyes. Anyone running for president who can say that the GDP of the USA is ZERO, has no grasp of global economics… I almost laughed off my chair.

Please enlighten me with another story , maybe one of a caucasian woman or man working 6 days a week over 10 hours a day in the fields, picking strawberries. Something along the lines.. I doubt you have one.
    You know, we should all cut the bullshit. It is not about race anymore.
    Juat because a mexican commited a crime does not mean all mexicans should be labeled that way. Same goes for african americans and caucasians.
    It amazes me that you fail to mention any caucasian that is a rapist, killer, and has even droven drunk and caused a fatal accident.
    LET ME TELL YOU, THERE IS PLENTY OF THEM.
    Prison is filled with them too.

    June 25, 2015 at 11:32 pm

    So Josh, you’re telling me that the American man who killed 9 innocent people in Charleston is not a criminal because he was born here and has no Mexican ancestors? Or should we assume that because of the actions of this one criminal all Americans are a bunch of racist murderers? One’s nationality or ethnicity does not signify criminal status. There’s plenty of bad Mexicans and plenty of bad Americans, it just depends where you look. The basis of racism is stereotyping which is assuming the actions of one person to the entire group. If I were like you and had your same mentality I’d assume all Americans are stupid and ignorant. Please stop making us all look bad.

    Sincerely,

    Jose , your dad did not legally migrated to the US by just waiting 5 years. In case you’re not aware I suggest that you visit the Visa Bulletin at the State Department website and look at the priority dates for Mexican immigrants, they are all backdated more than twenty years. And that is just to begin the process of adjustment of status not citizenship. So your story is bull….. Also you don’t just go to the American embassy and apply for citizenship. You first have to apply for permanent residency and after five years you can apply for citizenship. Please stop disseminating disinformation and look things up so you don’t look like an ignorant fool and a liar.

    Okay so, what you’re saying is that only Mexicans make mistakes? I mean, of course not all mexicans are good but neither all northamericans are. Nobody is a criminal for trying to get a better life. I don’t know if in your selfish country, they teach you history but your country was made of immigrants. That’s why you don’t even have a defined culture. So if you’re going to be a selfish, close-minded ass, at least think about all the people who come to your country just looking for a better future. I’m not saying it’s okay to live illegaly in another country but being an immigrant doesn’t mean that you’re a criminal. Theres a lot of bad people who are northamericans (or how you self-centered people call yourselfs “americans” when AMERICA includes Latin America not only you guys) and they rape, drink, kill and keep the drug traffic on track. Being a good person doesn’t come with the race or the nationality, it comes with your education and your values and morals. So stop being a little ignorant and open your mind.

It’s extremely sad that at this point in time people continue to discriminate against individuals that look different than them. I think this is the real issue, the hatred that one feels against another is downright scary. We are all immigrants and have faced similar issues. We are all human beings, no one is better than another. I, like Martin Luther King hope that one day we will all walk together.

    Not all Mexicans qualify for this public health insurance and the poor get minimal help. I know I have a lot of family there. It’s not all that it is pumped up to be. My cousin who lived in Mexico had the minimal coverage and the family put there money together in order to get her medicine and hospitalization that she needed. Oh by the way she was on the list for legal immigration and never made it. The majority of illegal people are Mexicans from Mexico and the ones that cross through Mexico to come here from Central America also,
    cross through Mexico. U.S needs to close the borders period and immigrate legally. And if the Silicon Valley Indians want to work for less on a Visa, well, that is their choice. At least they are here legally and contributing to the tax base.

He talks about mexicans how about all the American killing people here lets not talk about drugs most drug feens ever search up in most facility jails all the Americans and see why their in jail you wouldnt believe your eyes , you see more Americans then anything but ofcourse they wont tell us. US is just trying brainwash us for everything they doing , they really not helping us they using us to help them we here to works for them then to die … Mexicans come here to work while us American goes to other countries to mind our business to create war instead of making a better world to live in , create big problems in the US to bring more laws and you proud of the US lets not even talk about all the debts US have and who you think they taking all the money from yea theres alot about this bullshyt country so you can talk like this man trying to run for president lets not be ignorant and be more fair , peace and love.

    Josh, I understand that that there are many who do break laws and like many legal citizens commit the same crimes. However, the jobs that you say “This woman’s father was a criminal taking jobs from American” I highly doubt that you or anyone in your family would enjoy doing without any complaints. I have heard mexicans been stealing Americans jobs, but in 20 years of being around hard labor and agriculture employment, I have yet to see a Caucasian busting their ass.

    And all those mass murderers, like the guy that killed all those people during that Batman movie, among others, were all Mexican too, right? All you white people come from Europe. You’re all immigrants too. Mexicans where on this side of the planet before you even discovered it, so get off your damn high horse, and realize we’re all human. Illegal immigrants aren’t here because they like pissing you people off. They’re here because they think it’s a good country, but it’s just full of hate and hostility. Stop focusing on Mexican and/or the undocumented community, and focus on the real problem, terrorists (including white (mostly) racists, and drug smugglers (Mexican and not (Mexicans aren’t the only smugglers )). Stop acting like natural born white Americans are all a bunch of saints because we all know that’s not true. Good and bad comes in all shapes sizes, colors and forms.

So we are forced to hire Mexico native people so you can eat your veggies everyday.your true Americans you say are lazy, rude and pathetic. They rather live out of the system. And the educate Americans are are the rudest people I know. And the other. I’m not even going to comment.

    June 26, 2015 at 2:03 am

    Ok so Josh, why don’t you give an example of all of the crimes Americans have committed like killing so many Native Americans for their lands. Your ancestors committed the crime and you have the audacity to bash on Mexicans? He took jobs that no one wanted and were free for the taking because Americans are too proud and think they are too good to work out in the fields. So before you type another stupid comment, think of how ignorant you sound. You ass!

    June 26, 2015 at 2:19 am

    I agree with you Josh, But I have to say that 30 years ago Mexicans did come here illegally to better their lives for their families they worked for a lot less then minimum wage. But today they come here to sell drugs and they no longer work for cheap they demand higher pay sometimes they even demand paid lunches and of course the employer most likely is the one transporting them to and from work. They have changed and it is not for the better for Americans. With unemployment the way it is these days we just can’t afford to have them here.

Most of the time the drug cartels kidnap their families to make them do it. No am not saying that all of them do it because they are made to but most of them do. I wish that the American people would look into how most of the Hispanic people deal with other a daily basis. Do you even know what they go through??? I can’t believe that Donald Trump would say what he said on TV. My kids father is Hispanic and he is a very hard worker. He is not a drug dealer, rapist, nor does he sit back and live off of any kind of government assistance. Her is a good man and great father.. Those statements made by Donald Trump was false and wrong. Not all Hispanic people are drug trafficking or rapist most are hard working and great family members.

    He still broke the law coming illegally, so yes, that is a crime. As far as picking crops… I am yet to know a mexican that works in the fields. Or dominican, salvadorenian, whatever… they work in restaurants, construction,… anything… radio stations, hispanic papers, grocery stores… whatever… and I do payroll… and guess what… they don’t get paid less than citizens.

    Your lying Licha. Your cousin probably isn’t Mexican. Some Central American try to pretend to be mexicans when they are in Mexico. That public health insurance in Mexico is called “Seguro Popular” It covered our town in Mexico and we are getting a second hospital being built in our town in Mexico. People get free health coverage by the Government in our town. I guess the mining activities nearby has paid for it. No one in our town migrates to USA at the present time since Vicente Fox and Felipe Calceron invested in education which has seen the youth graduating with basic education and some go on to college. Lost incentive to migrate. Those illegals that came out in the news that flock to Texas are from Central America. They use public funds in the USA because they get to stay in the USA. They are not deported immediately.

    No Mich! It’s our country. You better go and read true history before telling us to GO HOME! You better get used to it, because we’re not going anywheres. Plus, soon enough, you’re going to have one of us in your family. Anyways, if we had to go back where we came from, we just have to walk across the bridge. You and your family would have to take the “Titanic” back home. Oops! That’s how stupid you sound when you tell us to go home!!

    David I will vote for any presidential candidate that have your heart and your convictions upon our constitution and our collective convictions. Any laws that contradicts our unalienable rights should be declared unconstitutional. Labeling any human as an illegal for any reason is against our declaration. We have not stopped there but included the word criminal to it. Any law made in our country that takes away the unalienable rights from any human being is illegal and criminal it self. Todays’ immigration law is a form of discrimination primarily against the poor of Mexico making the statement on the copper plate of the Statue of Liberty a false statement”Give me your tired, your poor…” I say the poor because the poor can’t afford to go the legal route; but the rich can and do. This law takes away the liberty from human beings that can’t afford to pay for the legal route by labeling them illegal and criminals; give them a chance to get a job and don’t threaten them and they will be more than grateful to register and follow attainable rules and laws. Otherwise, they receive the label of illegals and criminals and greedy American businesses exploit them; beginning from the IRS and then it trickles down. They know that they need a social security to work so they get forged numbers and get a job. They pay taxes that they will never be able to claim and the IRS knows the number of millions in that situation; but we never hear any complaints from the IRS or hear that they are trying to identify this millions of people to give them back their refund. The part of our immigration law that labels human beings illegals and criminals is discriminatory and criminal itself and anyone that approves it is also the same. I say we the people deserve better leaders than what we have had in the past; so get out there and register to vote and vote for the ones with your convictions; for sure Donald Trump is not it.

    Why don’t you do some research? Back then the US would recruit people from mexico to do the jobs americans didn’t want to do. They offered them jobs that paid money that was good enough to them. They didn’t get paid alot to work through the fields for hours and hours on end. They didn’t smuggle themselves across the border the US gave these jobs to them and advertised these jobs along the border towns and poor places in Mexico. Worse after some of these farms or companies brought them to the US they made them work with NO pay and then had them deported back as criminals.

    Remember Mich, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas were once Mexican. The U.S was founded by COLONISTS starting around 1600 by British and other European countries. later Africans were brought as slaves. With the ending of numerical restrictions in 1965 and the advent of cheap air travel immigration has increased from Asia and Latin America.
    So Mich, you, or someone in your family are an immigrant too. i’ll bet on that!!

    Mitch,
    Actually, if you are injured or sick while in Canada or most European countries you will receive free health care. In some Latin American countries as well. I got such a hand out while in The Netherlands. I have friend who was admitted to a hospital in Paris for two weeks after being hit by a bus. He was charged nothing. Another also received free hospital care in Canada. All free handouts. Let’s remember that no one was checking passports when our ancestors immigrated to the great country that is the USA and that we are humans regardless of country of origin.

    “One’s nationality or ethnicity does not signify criminal status. “. Nope, you are correct. Illegally entering a country, however, makes one a criminal. Anyone entering this (and any other) country illegally is automatically a criminal, whether you like it or not. I am an immigrant, btw; a legal one. Applied the right way, paid over 4k, waited for 2 years to receive my permanent resident status. There are ways to be an immigrant. Illegally entering a country should not be one!

    Are you serious. Mexicans don’t “take the jobs away from Americans”. SOME Americans are just too lazy to work or think that they deserve to be treated like royalty so Mexicans come and do the dirty work for them. My father came to this country when he was little and ended up living by himself at the age of 16 without his parents or family even in the same country. He worked his butt off his whole life, never had the chance to go to college, to give our family a great life. He didn’t get to go to college but he is one the smartest men you will ever meet. He came here and still to this day works his body to the breaking point because you guys think it’s “too hard” or “not fair” to have to do that work for little money. He and a lot of other Mexicans come are “the best”. They are great men and women that come just to try to find a better life and its people like you that make it crap. You judgmental, rude, racist people

    So Mexicans are to blame for all US crime?

    Timothy James McVeigh
    James Holmes
    Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer
    Adam Lanza
    Eric David Harris
    Dylan Bennet Klebold

    Just to name a few you might recognize…

    If you live in the USA, regardless of where you were born, it’s hard to dismiss the fact that criminals come in all shapes, colors, and sizes. They don’t just come from across the border.

    The true problem lies with leaders that don’t have the ability to enforce punishments for crimes. It’s easier to blame one group of people than to realize they have no power to control the underlying issues within the country.

    Even if every single Mexican or Latin American left the country there would always be someone else to attack: Asian, Black, Middle-Eastern. Even the Irish were unwelcome in the past.

    The reality is that regardless of who’s coming in now, it’s hard to eradicate an entire ethnicity that was already living in regions such as Texas and California when the US bought the land. The US gave the inhabitants of the land the choice to stay and become Americans.

    Every single country deals with the exact same issues. It just so happens that Mexico is our neighbor to the South and it was only about 30 years ago that the borders were closed. Up until then America really was the land of the free.

    Now it’s just the land of people that don’t truly comprehend the Constitution so they fight against immigration and fight for guns.

    Perhaps it’s time to realize that we need a new constitution that is actually relevant to what the US has become today.

    The odd thing is that if we wanted to stop illegal immigration it would be quite easy. Just increase the penalties on employers who hire illegal immigrants until employers stop the hiring. Problem solved. But we don’t do that. Why?
    I hear (not verified) that two thirds of the construction trades in Texas are illegal. In Texas? How can that be? And no conservatives in Texas have even noticed? An amazing coincidence, don’t you think?
    Of course the truth is simple. And as normal you just have to follow the money.
    It isn’t that they don’t want the workers, they just want to make sure that they can exploit those workers. If they were legal they would have to get minimum wage! And the taxes taken out of their checks would have to actually be sent to the government. And they couldn’t call immigration the day before pay day. And, well never mind, I’m sure you have the picture by now.
    And its not discrimination! Because those employers would do just the same to you, if they could get away with it.
    Welcome to America. Take a good long look.

    June 26, 2015 at 7:37 am

    I have to agree. I was born here & I am Mexican. I understand the woman’s point on this letter but it doesn’t change the fact that her father came over here illegally, broke the law, didn’t pay taxes, possibly purchased a fake social & yes, took away an American job to send money down to Mexico.

    So essentially yes, he’s doing this country no favor at all. As a businessman myself, in order to profit you must be bringing in money from somewhere.

    This father obviously wasn’t paying taxes (which held our country), he wasn’t spending the money here (which helps our country) & he took away a job for maybe a Mexican-American who did come here legally!

    And what’s worse is he’s one of millions upon millions who do the same. Money being given but spent outside the u.s.

    I feel for this man & his daughters story but Mr. Trump had a point, people who leave Mexico usually don’t do so wealthy or on vacation. They come here (illegally) broke to earn some cash to send back to Mexico.

    No I’m obviously not racist nor am I trying to cause an argument. I’m just thinking big picture here. It’s expensive to carry the weight of illegal immigrants when this country is already 19 trillion in debt.

Did they Migrated here “legally” or did they get “SMUGGLED IN HERE” like you stated in your comment??? As far as saying “your dad worked in the fields where he practically kept every dime he earned” that’s an IGNORANT STATEMENT .you get taxed just the same if you receive a paycheck “uncle sam” gets his. Research on the BILLIONS of unclaimed tax dollars that come from the undocumented work force when you get a chance. That goes unclaimed. Big f’g deal

You know, the one that was killed in a car crash by an illegal, let’s call them what they are, who was high on cocaine and had been deported back to Mexico three times previously. Is he “one of their best” that she was referring to? I’m glad that her dad is a hard working role model to her. I also acknowledge that our immigration system needs to be fixed. However, for this young lady to dismiss the fact that the border between Mexico and the U.S. is a sieve for illegal immigration where anyone, including criminals and people who want to harm this country, can easily access American soil is an absolute joke.

    Don’t be ignorant. Don’t tell me that everything you have listed above have never done by an American? There is an American in daily basis who get drunk and does to operate a car and can commit a fatal accident So if you want find something to blame illegal immigrants on, please come up with something that will stand out your points. Now you are talking about the jobs have been taken. Don’t you know that ever time government tight up immigration law, it undermines farm industries because that sort of jobs most American don’t like to do it, but most immigrant (Mexican primary) are willing to do anything. Another point, illegal immigrant don’t take any jobs away from you. Your elected officers cause jobs be taken away from you because of their bad and fail policies that undermine economy. Just for your information, everybody once was undocumented. when your ancestors had come here, natives did not invite them.

Oh every country has its crazies, what a moot point, lol. The point is NO ONE should be coming in illegally through the backdoor and getting away with it.

    Okay she wrote a beautiful heart warming letter. It was very touching but I don’t believe trump was targeting only Mexicans, yes, he said it but I know that its much bigger than that worldwide!!! A lot of immigrants are coming in through Mexican American borders. They are coming from extreme poverty and its not due to Americas inadequate government officials, its due to their own. I’m not saying good people haven’t come to America and worked hard to achieve the American dream but this really isn’t about them now is it?!
    30 years ago people came here to achieve a better life, is this still the case? We have never had this much crime, new diseases that are sprouting up everywhere. Can’t we see what’s really happening , this Country will become the poorest.
    What trump said does have some relevance, although it is incorrect and untrue to blame the Mexicans. We are not going to say every country globally is a potential target for us but we don’t have to its evident in society today.
    Latinos Unidos??? What about the Americans? People who love this country and its Laws, what about the people here who truly appreciate the United States for giving everyone the opportunity and are now watching people destroy it because they came prepackaged and damaged like that. I see it everyday. The fabric of our society is tearing at our own beliefs. What Trump said is what most people think and don’t have the BALLS to say. It is much bigger than an offense. Like I’ve said before go to Canada, which seems to be doing things right and go tear up their society, right!!!! You can’t because they won’t accept you. They want educated people residing in their Country, not the parasites from everywhere living, and destroying what was once the best Country in the World!!!! I am by the way Latin American.

    First of all, North America was found by Mongolians. They crossed the Beringian-land-bridge (Atlantic Ice) from Mongolia to the continent as North America. And the pioneer Mongolians were mixed with different Asian ethnics 16,500–13,000 years ago. Nevertheless, I have many Mexican and SouthAmerican friends in the US and my prior real estate company relied on my Mexican landscape professionals to maintain 40 houses every month. They worked hard and never quit until the job is done. We became good friends.. Estaban, you know I’m speaking of you my friend.

The people who don’t have a job is because they don’t want to work. People who stick up their nose at certain jobs they consider “beneath” them, while an immigrant will tackle it wholeheartedly, because it means food on the table for the family and a roof over their head.

    I guess Trump prefers to ignore all the rapes and crimes committed by US citizens as compared to the ones that are committed by illegal aliens. Besides, was the horrendous mass crime at the World Trade Center perpetrated by people that Mexico sent? Also, he should stress the fact that most illegal immigrants that cross through the Mexican border are not from Mexico but from central and even south america.

    Josh, have you ever considered directing your ire towards the AMERICAN citizens who hire undocumented workers and then jip us all out of payroll and fica taxes. Without them, people like her father would not be able to stay. Her father came here to work and an AMERICAN gave him a job. Who’s the problem here?

    The Jobs illegals come here and “take” from Americans are jobs Americans don’t want or can’t even do. Like work long hard strenuous hours picking oranges for minimum wage or less. There are good and bad people from all walks of life most of the people who come here from Mexico are hard working caring people who I respect very much and am glad to call my friends

    what does calling us mexicans rapists have to do with immigration! That is very offensive! your american military white males in our latino countries look for prostitutes. So now they will be targets for latino police to go after. And if we mexicans are rapists? but you gringos like our mexican or latina relatives.

    Tell your canadain mining companies to stop leeching off our gold and silver in Mexico that is on private land of mexican land owners. There is a lot of conflicts over that when mexican land owners protest against canadian mining but get dragged away. The zapatistas are upset with Blackfire mining company in chiapas because they are getting forced out of their habitats.

    Trump is a buffoon and he didn’t say what he said correctly…but the key words here to me are “legal” vs “Illegal” I, as an American citizen find it offensive that “Illegal aliens” who are making no effort to become citizens say this is “their” country. With what taxes did they pay for it? How much of what they earned stayed here to stimulate our economy and how much was sent back? This woman’s father may well be the best man and hardest worker in the world, however none of that negates the fact that he has broken the law and circumvented the very process that established his nation.

Hispanic people work day or night we don’t depend on the American system we work hard for our families now try to have an American sell anything on the corner they won’t do it because is work and they are used to get the money the easy way…

    I applaud this young lady for defending defending her father and her people. I also love her values.

    It’s so sad that some people just want to jump on here with their ignorant stereotypes, be racist and bash Mexicans, Mexican-Americans and Mexico. Considering the fact that we took land from Mexico to create America’s current borders and improved America with the wealth that was gained- I’d it really that hard to understand why some Mexicans would desire to come here and try to live the American dream? And why are people so ignorant to this history & so willing to place people into one box. As if we fit in one box will all the people of our race. Of course there are rapists, murderers, drugg-addicts & lazy people in every race! Do we view them differently because they fall into different ethnic groups or have different socio-economic statuses? Do we say all the white priests need to be monitored around little boys because they are molestors? I don’t think so because that would be pretty far-fetched. Some of you need to really re-read the garbage you post and reflect upon your ignorant and blanket statements. Also, learn how to respond to the original post/article instead of reading a few words, letting anger & bitterness take over you & then sharing your unsolicited opinions.

    Dear Mr, Josh. I for one can tell you my father worked in this country for many years and did not come illegally here,. In the late 50’s and early 60’s they had what you call braseros. americans would get contracts go to mexico and contract workers to come do their labor work. for months at a time with time they allowed these workers to countinue working and these american companies helped them fix papers and bring their families and fix papers for them. My father worked in ranch work where i can assure you many of americans wouldn’t be able to work for more than 8 hrs a day in heat and in cold ,rainy, snowy days… My father worked for this same company for over 50 yrs… raised all of us became us citizens him and my mom we were born here in the united states, and are very proud of what my father has done for us… we lived comfortable and never were in need of anything, never did my parents get any handouts from the goverment. that was saved for you lazy americans who don’t want to work the hard jobs.. We learned to work hard as we were young learned to work out in the weather rounding cattle branding, from early hours in the morning to late at night never had any luxuries of sitting around watching tv or sleeping till noon, eating hot dogs and bologna sandwiches…
    so before you go off saying what you want to say check out who really is doing the hard work.. i don’t see american high schoolers picking chili or vegetables or even working the dairies,,, . the want all the nice cushy jobs….
    and still have the balls to talk about us,,. like we’ve said the native indains this was their country, everybody has moved here . part of the us was mexicos until the americans came and fought over it .. remember the alamo?? yes who belongs here ?

    And entitlements? You think these people dont risk their lives to WORK here, you think they come here for free food or healthcare, they come to work and provide for their families sometimes at the risk of losing their lives.
    Its people like you that feel that just for the fact that you were born in a certain place, that makes you special. Special is something you earn not something you are born into.

But isn’t a American child that is killing up all the schools, isn’t Americans that are standing on the street asking for money instead of going to the fields and work. Didn’t a American just go shoot up a church… He wasn’t taken anything from anyone, he is actually helping fed your family fruits and vegetables etc.

I know what I am talking about Jose, I don’t know what you are talking about being so defensive about Mexicans being here illegally if you don’t think it’s so wrong. Questions: Let’s say you are right about Central Americans coming here in hoards, they are coming via Mexico, Right? They have to cross the border into Mexico and then into US land. Right? Why is Mexico allowing them to cross over to the United States? If Mexico is doing so well why aren’t people going back to their homes in Mexico? Look at the stats and tell me what are the majority of Latinos here illegally? Not legally but illegally. I get that their Government is corrupt and has not had the best interest of the people for years, but honestly we have our own problems with joblessness and poverty among Americans especially minority Americans. Have you been watching TV lately? You go to Mexico and start demanding legalization and rights there (assuming you are an American). Te dan una patada es lo que te dan.

So please spare me the “we’re a hard working race”!!!! I would assume that holding a job is a given!!! Please come up with something “new” as to why it is OK for yall to keep sneaking in here illegally!!! I mean really look around … Why leave Mexico if you just want this country to become Mexico!!!! If you want to remain your heritage stay in your own country and “fix” it!!!!

    Actually Charlie, when she said that her father is undocumented, unauthorized, or “illegal”. that pretty much sums up the point, he is here illegally. That means he BROKE THE LAW! But this day in age we have to be politically correct to everyone and we can’t tell them get the hell out of our country because you broke the law coming in. No we have to allow them to stay because of all the crap people say and do when we try to enforce the laws. I am sick of it, I for one will vote for Donald Trump just to shut down the borders and make it next to impossible for border jumpers to come to this country.

    Yet all the field workers are illegal immigrants… You complain about how illegal immigrants come take your jobs while you’d rather sit on unemployment, welfare, or other government aid instead of busting your ass for money! If you don’t like it go work in the fields instead of complaining about them taking a job you never wanted in the first place! I can bet money you don’t have a college degree or you wouldn’t complain about being beat out of a job by an illegal immigrant with less education than you. If they can do it, you’re in the wrong market.

He has worked for 28 yrs not paying taxes and sending money out of the country instead of spending here which in turns helps the break down of our economy. He was a good father making sure his childern took a spot at school and college from childern of tax paying parents. I’m sorry but i refuse to over look him being here criminality because he treated his child the way every father should to begin with.

This country was built by immigrants! if EVERYONE would go home then this land would just have native Americans *the real Americans”..So he needs to shut the F**K up or go back to Europe! LOL.. . Mexicans are the hardest working people I know. They take jobs that Americans are to lazy to do. like Build bridges and buildings etc etc etc in the HOT sun..while us so called “Americans” walk around them with hard hats, shirts and ties telling them what to do.. The bottom line is We are all Americans and it takes all of us (regardless of race) that makes this a great country. so shame on your Mr Trump… shame shame!! . GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am only 18 and I am half Hispanic for I know how it is to be messed with. The Americans are not from this country how ever you put it. The Mexicans that Mexico is “sending” over here are good people I do understand that but the majority of them are here to provide for their families back home. And when they arrive here yes they are illegal at first but you Americans don’t really care about that you still hire them to do the work you don’t want to do! They work their entire life to be able to provide for their families both here and back in Mexico. My father came here and got married to my mother and had 4 beautiful children with her. He would go to work, come home and give my mother the money he earned so that she could provide for the family. And to be honest they don’t get back what they earn because they are of different race. The government takes advantage of them! They make them work 5-6-7 days a week and they don’t get what the Americans get. I just recently had a job were my boss was of Hispanic and she was bullied for being Hispanic. And I was bullied for being Hispanic. We were told that we couldn’t hire anyone who had brown eyes and black hair because we were Mexican. Now is that right ? No !!!! I do not claim my American side (i do love my family who are American) I am proud to be Hispanic!! The Mexicans are very humble and lovely and friendly.

    Licha the Liar, Guadalajara is a major metropolis of Mexico. Are you an ex-pat living in Guadalajara? In Mexico where we are from we have gold silver deposits on our properties. Mining companies from Canada take properties away from Mexicans by force who protest against the mining. If you want to see the trade with Mexico, I dare you to go to the facebook page “Mexico Institute” and voice your opinions on all. There are experts there. Seguro Popular is a public government insurance in Mexico. There is private insurance in Mexico for examples that only cost 40 dollars per month which allows you to get access to top notch hospitals in Mexico and that insurance covers the costs. There is a bunch of americans that come to Mexico for the cheaper health insurance. July 15 is when the Mexican Government is going to issue contracts for oil and shale natural gas. Since you hate mexicans so much, why do so many foreign energy companies want our oil and natural gas. The timing of Donald Trumps insults as well as insults from the past that Isis could pass through Mexico? There is no Isis in Mexico. They have British Accents who were educated in England and Canada that have large Arab populations.

    June 26, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    Mr. Much, you obviously do not have an education. Sorry buddy, the history you learned in K-12 is false. This country does not belong to Europeans. Your ancestors (I’m assuming you are white) were not the best in Europe. They came and killed Native American men, women and children. They raped women in front of their tied up male relatives. They brought disease and chaos. They started wars, depleted natural resources, drove species to extinction. As far as Mexicans we were already in the southwest. Mexico was debilitated by wars so Mr. Polk and other of his kind planned for war and treated Mexicans worse than animals. I won’t go into details, you do your homework. When your ancestors were coming into Mexico illegally claiming land they wanted to start wars because the Mexican government was trying to control immigration. These white illegal immigrants were not coming in with peace. They wanted free land, and they would take it at any means. I’m making this too long and you do not deserve my time. My point is that Mexicans belong here; they always have. Your people came across oceans. Here’s homework for you. Is the United States a nation or an EMPIRE? …now think… Even the Roman Empire eventually collapsed. The US one day be taken back by others; maybe a mixed race, maybe others rising to power. God only knows who, but whites will be far outnumbered and thrown out of government. Now, I am married to a white man and like him I know there are many good white folks and it is them I respect, not ignorant, racist, hateful people like you. Go educate yourself.

    Now maybe it wasn’t your parents or even grandparents who immigrated, but check your own ancestors. Perhaps you were Living in Germany in WWII serving the ‘ would-be Dictator of all people.

    It was never your country. It belonged to the many mexcian indian tribes, chichimecs being one of the largest. Then the had the great war with spain that lasted over 15 years. Then then the spaniards & the tribes of indians mixed so then most of Calif. was also Mexico. Learn some history. Oh by the way, I have Chichimeca blood running through my veins.

    June 26, 2015 at 9:32 pm

    Wrong, mich! I have retired to Mexico and we receive many benefits from the Mexican federal government: free health care, subsidized electricity, senior discounts using a government-issued card. A free dental clinic in town will service ANYONE with no proof of nationality or residence. This despite the fact that we pay NO taxes to Mexico (we’re on a pension).

    Most countries with government-run health care would treat you for free. Americans in other countries regularly take advantage of their “handouts.”

    Granted, we’re here legally, but it’s much easier to come here legally than vice versa.

So before u criticize n go against what u should have learned in school, STFU! Violence, slavery and disgrace is what the English brought to this country! Ur such a coward, u won’t even use a real name. Ya, some kind of AMERICAN you are. Hide behind ur computer or phone. You will never step up to a REAL Mexican – American! Ohh and by the way, I also have never been on welfare and paid my own way through school. I pay for my children’s lunch, IN PUBLIC SCHOOL, and pay for their medical insurance out of my hard earned paycheck! I bet you cannot say the same…

    I am a Mexican male. I was born in Mexico and migrated to the US illegally so they say. I went back to Mexico to help my country. I felt like a trader fighting for the USA when I am Mexican. Real Mexicans stick with their country to make it better. Through thick or thin. In my eyes you are all traders. Help Mexico get better so we can be strong again. Come home my fellow Mexicans we need you.

    I’m guessing you didn’t read about the treaty the Indians signed that gave the U.S. Legal authority to relocate then. You can call it whatever you want, but the tribes signed the treaty and let them do it. Oh, and this was even after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Indians against the Relocation Act. The Indians were killing and taking over each other’s land long before the Europeans came. Plus let’s also not forget that the lands were owned by other countries and were purchased by the U.S. And, most of the Indians were nomads. It’s hard to claim land with no borders when you’re not there and there’s no laws protecting that land. Quit bringing up the Indians. The two situations are not the same. There were no clear borders or laws back then, and there are clear laws and borders today. Regardless of what you think, they are committing a crime and are a general burden on our system. This one letter doesn’t change the fact there are millions coming over illegally and quite a few of them have criminal records and commit crimes while in the U.S. Some have been deported because of committing crimes but sneak back and commit more crimes. Some don’t, but there are some that do as well.

    Just as I expected Jose, the expert know it all, who can’t answer questions, just has his talking points that he re reads and recites. I’m not interested in your plug on the Medical care in Mexico because I know (as well as everyone who lives there) that it sucks or people wouldn’t be crawling over here to have babies in order to stay. Stop focusing on your imaginary perfect Medical/job opportunities. Get off your high horse and face the facts. If it’s so peachy there in Mexico have the people who are here illegally go back voluntarily and allow the ones who want to come over legally to do so. Maybe the silver/gold/gas folks can use you to recruit illegals. People are sick of you crying. Nobody hates Mexico or Mexicans. We hate cheaters and liars. Check yourself. Oh,BTW, no, I am an American who use to visit my cousins in Mexico but it’s so full of drug gangs having shoot-outs in that area that I rather stay home. I watch Las Noticias. If you want to continue a discussion I am for it but (just like the Left), don’t call me names or label people racists, or bigots if and when they don’t agree with you. It’s childish and ignorant.

    No John, it’s NOT “YOUR COUNTRY”. Mexico sold land to the U.S., therefore relinquishing ownership of that land. When Mexico tried to go to war with the U.S. over the land, THEY LOST. It is no longer “your country”. You better go read up on your history some more. I think you missed a few pages.

    You can’t be an illegal immigrant if there’s no law against immigration. You’re statement is invalid. There are laws against immigration not done through the legal channels today, therefore making anyone here not done through the immigration process, is therefore “ILLEGAL” by definition. Try again.

    June 26, 2015 at 11:23 pm

    Joe, in those “Latino countries” you talk about, is prostitution legal? In some countries it is. So your point would be invalid in those countries. If it is illegal then that country has the right to prosecute as needed. However, you’re trying relate paying a prostitute to raping an unwilling victim (some who are children) who is not a prostitute. Those are not one in the same.

    No Mark, YOU didn’t read what she wrote. She clearly said he came over “undocumented/illegally”. He did not get his visa or go through immigration to have the right to be here. He is in fact a CRIMINAL for what he did. Get back to school and learn comprehension.

    Illegal Mexicans are a drain on our economy. I’m all for someone bettering themselves but they come over and indulge themselves in government benefits when they have not contributed 1 penny. That’s like winning the lottery without buying a ticket…it just shouldn’t happen. I would rather give benefits to Vets that found for this country, seniors and single families than give it to a bunch of ungrateful people whose who society is built in cheating, stealing and deception. Ask a Mexican what their last name is and you’ll usually find them using atleast 3…

    For one thing to say you have cousins in Mexico. But you didn’t reply if they are mexican or not. It sounds like your cousins are foreigners. And I already told you, in our town people get free health care from the Government. You don’t follow mexican news daily. The news you probably follow are american news or the USA based latino news that doesn’t carry that much news about Mexico. I am always following what is going on in Mexico. I am also surprised you haven’t heard about the Central Americans that ride the trains of Mexico to USA called “La bestia” The Mara Salvatrucha of El Salvador controls that route and charges central americans a quota to ride the trains. Some of the Texans politicians stated that Texas has to take in a lot of people from Central America because they have a policy that allows Central Americans to stay in the USA to get an immigration hearing. So they asked the Mexican Governemnt to close down the Mexico/Guatemala Border which Pena Nieto did and now Central Americans are complaining about it and also wants the USA to give them Political Asylum. You also haven’t been following Energy Reform in Mexico. Most of us Mexicans are against it but foreign energy companies have been pursuading the Mexican Government to privatized our mexican oil so they can make money of our mexican oil. And also want access to shale natural gas on land which will conflict with Mexican land owners. So what is going to happen if a mexican land owner doesn’t want shale natural gas fracking on their properties? They get dragged off like it happens in Mining. Also there are waves of foreign renewable energy companies that want to build and own solar or wind farms in Mexico which again is on private property of Mexicans. Sempra Energy is one of them in Baja California, Mexico where they produce electricity and export it to San Diego, Ca. If you want to express your opinion, I dare you to go to the facebook page, “Mexico Institute” they follow all of this daily. If I don’t see your comments there your a chicken Licha

    I don’t agree with what trump said…I don’t have a problem with “mexicans” being here (America) as long as they are working and taking care of their families that they bring over here. What people don’t like about illegals is some of them come over and get on disability and food stamps and any other government hand out that they can possibly get while us Americans that are working, struggling and barely making it are paying for all the things that they are getting. We are working and eating cheap while they do nothing and are eating steak. If you are over here and taking care of yourself and trying to achieve the american dream that we all strive for here I welcome you with open arms but if you come over here to get everything free and have a cushion life without working for it then I consider you a parasite and you need to go back. I say try to get legal you that are going to try to make America better and if you need help doing that people don’t mind helping people that want to help themselves but I don’t want to help people that are going to take take take and not give anything back. I welcome all people that want to better themselves and help our country. People are just tired of the freeloaders whether they be Mexican, white, Asian, African American, Russian, whatever. Stop freeloading and we so,t mind you being here.

You ar another examples how one must stand against person of bigotry, therefore, every people reading your comments knows Trimp should not be elected President, let alone Mexico will not allow nor tolerate his presence there. I live in Mexico and saw how hard it is to live with people getting ready for the day to start to sundown compare to rich folks like Dumble Trimp only wants to be in and out whenever. Why he addresses these topics is beyond anyone and now I see why he is an asshole and in some way isn’t well like. Well said Adriana…….if he talking immigrants from Mexico, he’s also referring to all other immigrants of different nationalities. I know how hard it is coming to America trying to work since I seen it first hand with my ex wife from this tiny city in Mexico. Wasn’t easy, but they didn’t have any care in the world except wanna work and provide for their families. If Dumble Trimp continue his tirade, let’s all take a stand at his trump plaza marching around for day till he’s realizes how wrong he is, thumbs lose his presidential bid.

    A criminal is anyone who commits a crime. The issue most have is that America has provided more for people that came here illegally, than it ever has for me. There’s not an American scholarship. Not here or Mexico. Or any other country. I’ve known several people that are from other countries. They followed the rules to be here legally, long term. Whether with a visa or becoming a citizen. I can’t help how my ancestors got here. I won’t apologize for it. I did nothing wrong. And I don’t plan on moving out of the country, although if I did, I would certainly follow the other country’s laws. I wouldn’t show up and pop out a kid and expect their government to pay for it. Then act like they owe me for something. I speak of all foreigners, not just from the south. People from all over the world do this.

I am proud to be Mexican and will forever thank my mother for being one of those who worked 12-16 hours to provide for my grandma, her siblings and us her children.

    Nah, that makes way too much common sense. The main point gets lost yet again – what is so hard to understand about the word “illegal?”

    Trump didn’t say that all illegals are criminals. However, the fact remains that not a few are gang bangers of the worst kind. We’ve got enough problems, don’t we (the biggest of which is a mafia government – both parties).

    Yes, not all illegals who enter the U.S. are rapists and gang bangers, but many are. And, the bottom line is, they are ILLEGAL immigrants. I guess in Newspeak illegal now means legal. Bill Clinton’s Ministry of Truth must be up and running.

    What we are witnessing here has nothing to do with left or right, Democrat or Republican or incompetence or stupidity. Quite simply, our government has been hijacked by globalist Mafiosi who are the worst criminals on the planet. Balkanization, or divide and conquer, is a very old technique that governments have used to distract the commoners from crimes in high places and political treason.

    Today in the U.S., Big Brother and its lapdog mainstream media pit Black against White, left against right, Democrat against Republican, blue collar vs. white collar, etc., climate denier vs. climate alarmist, vaxer vs. anti-vaxer, etc., etc. Allowing illegals from Mexico into the country is another way that our puppet president and his mega-rich masters are dividing the citizenry and creating more chaos. Ultimately, the globalists’ plan is order out of chaos – a one world order that will force all countries to give up their sovereignty and will shred what is left of the Bill of Rights here in the U.S. Fast tracking TPP is one more way that our jobs, economic future and sovereignty are slowly but surely being eradicated.

    The CIA has a long history of creating division and chaos in other countries and helping to depose democratically elected officials. We use our Al Qaeda pawns to destabilize countries the Western mafia/corporatocracy wishes to conquer. Hell, it’s mainline history that the CIA created Al Qaeda to give the USSR its own Vietnam. We supported them in Afghanistan in the 80’s, Bosnia in the 90’s and Macedonia in early 2001. We support them in places like Libya and Syria and call them moderate rebels. Yet, they are the evil enemy in other countries (like France, as one recent example) and give the powers that be the excuse to shred our civil liberties. This is all by design.

    If you think that Big Brother cares about you, you are sadly mistaken. We have not been a Constitutional Republic for over a century. The goal of the state is to maintain and increase its power. We had a chance of greatness, but we were infiltrated by the old money powers of the West. The British did finally win their war against us, not by force, but via stealth, culminating in the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which gave a private, for-profit, criminal corporation the power to issue currency instead of Congress, as stated in Article 1, Sec 8, Clause 5 of the Constitution. It’s been downhill ever since.

    I love my country and the Constitution upon which it is supposed to stand. The Mafiosi in D.C. are another matter entirely – both parties of course.

    Sadly there is zero tolerance nowadays. Mr Trump is pointing out a Global problem, but sadly it is focusing the cause of this problem solely and specifically on Mexican Immigrants. As I read above he did not focused on the legitimacy on the immigrant (legal or illegal), rather that the’re specifically Mexican. That is very wrong, focusing the crime issue solely on Mexicans is totally screwed up. For all my Mexican “Compadres” y “Comadres” out there:

    Dear Adriana Almanza, you should thank Donald Trump for speaking the truth. He has just told you how the Mexican government has been becoming wealthy off America for decades. Yet, Mexico’s “finest”, as you call them, are fleeing for a better life in America. Why don’t you make a stand for Mexico like Donald Trump is standing for America and demand that the Mexican politicians make life better for their country with the massive wealth they’ve hoarded so, their citizens don’t have to flee! But I guess you, like most everyone else, were not aware of this little fact were you? Once again, thank Donald Trump for exposing the truth. Corporations win and folks like your dad lose because working nearly every day of your life sure as hell isn’t winning. So, continue believing you live in a great country. You should listen to Donald Trump a bit closer; the American Dream is dead. The Mexican one died a long time ago. You can thank politicians on both sides of the Rio Grande for that.

    Hopefully you’ll pull your head out of your ass and understand that if anyone comes into the U.S. illegally, they are breaking the law. Try to enter Mexico illegally and they throw you in prison (documented fact! ) And all these people that enter illegally are an insult to all the good people who took the time and expense to do it right and came to this country legally (p.s. they don’t want your illegal asses here either)

    My dad was an immigrant – he was recruited by the good old USA, from Mexico, to help fight the war -WWII. They offered him citizenship in exchange. So … At the time headho trump – the U.S. didn’t give a rats ass that he spoke no English, that his skin was dark brown, and I venture to guess they didn’t ask him about his education, or whether he was a rapist or a drug dealer or anything else. They needed him and his Latin brothers in the front lines and speaking English was a non-issue. How about you @donaldtrump.com … What have you ever done for anyone that doesn’t put money in your pocket? With an education (which I’m sure your grandfather purchased) and all your swindled money … Anything for anybody else that didn’t benefit you? Anything for your country or for your fellowman ? meanwhile my Mexican father produced an american son and two daughters; he worked till the day he died. In fact he was at work when he died. my brother went on to serve his country. My sister has a masters in English literature. I’ve worked since I was 16, i pay my fare share of taxes, try to help the less fortunate, and try to speak up for those who are weak and can’t speak for themselves. You trump, are good at running your mouth – you are a good old fashioned motor mouth. Full of hot air, and yes … hair that looks like roadkill.

    Thank you Calvin!

    This is the thing people, the US has its own problem children, as some of you have mentioned, and as taxpayers we pay to imprison them, reform them, and discipline them for bad behavior. We don’t want the responsibility or the expense of imprisoning, reforming or disciplining anyone that is here illegally. That responsibility belongs to their country. That’s why we need stricter boarders.

    As far as jobs, all the Hispanic people I know carry regular jobs with the same wages as US citizens.

    I do know that billions of America dollars are sent to Mexico every year. Money earned here not going back into our economy.

    It’s about some of the people that come to the US illegally are breaking our laws, bringing in drugs from the cartel, and are actively in gangs. We don’t want this type of person here. We have enough of our own criminals to deal with. Basically, you keep your unsavory people in your country and we’ll keep ours in the US.

As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” You americans are pitiful, selfish twats

    I’d like to suggest you and the other haters on here find and watch the biography of another undocumented entry to this country, Cesar Milan, the dog whisperer. Think what we would have missed without him. He has given everything to the people and and unwanted dogs that people here just throw away. He came here young, hungry, lived under a bridge..he got a job as a dog walker, and the rest is history. Not all undocumented immigrants are bad people, and not all American citizens are good, so stop generalizing. Donald Trump is a blathering fool who has been plenty corrupt in his life. But he is an American citizen, so that’s okay?? Adriana I love your story, and God Bless your dad.

    The “best” is not a person who works in a field. The “best” is someone who offers more than cleaning a hotel room. “Best” are physicists, doctors, teachers, etc. In short “best” are scholars. It’s clear that the “best” sneaking across the boarder are not scholars. They are drug runners, smugglers (who smuggle people for money), ditch diggers, orange pickers and the dregs of humanity. Sure, she has a degree, but did her father pay into the system that provided that public education for her in a public school? Probably not since he never had a social security number and he didn’t pay taxes on his income. It’s a safe bet his income was cash and under the table. And how is it that he never finished school, learned english or became an educated man but yet he was able to help her with her homework? Contradiction in her tale? Undoubtedly so. And if there’s one false statement there are most assuredly others. This letter did not destroy Trump. His bad wig is evidence enough of his poor ability to choose wisely (his wigs and his words). But her words are just as pathetic as Trump himself. How is it fair to other immigrants that file the required paper work, learn english and go through the proper steps to be able to enter the US, but those who sneak across the border illegally are rewarded with citizenship when they do nothing by legal procedure (Regan legalized millions of illegal immigrants in the 1980’s!).Rather than making excuses for the illegals that repeatedly come to this country and drain our healthcare system, our public school system and flood our prisons and drain our police of time and resources why don’t we refuse to hire them? Refuse to house them? Refuse them free education in public schools? Refuse anyone that does not have the appropriate paper work to be in the US? This will discourage anyone from coming here illegally. She has a masters degree? Great! I wonder how many legal American citizens she knocked out of the way in her ability to take a “job Americans are not willing to do.” with her masters. Oh well, who cares? Her father is the “best”.

    I would like to add; If Miss Almanza thinks Mexico is so great then why doesn’t she stay there the next time she visits her “beautiful family”. She also stated she likes the “hard workers and humble” beings. Well that is the issue, Americans are being robbed of their jobs. When was the last time you saw a non-hispanic gardener?
    There are many flaws in Miss Almanza’ letter. I wonder if the daughter of the man who is out of work because Raul is doing his job, loves her father any less…

    Trump admitted that some are also Good People-so her father fits that category-he
    is entitled to his opinions after talking with
    Border Control which is what he referrs to.
    He did comment was brash but that’s how
    he communicates-He had other intentions
    than insulting nice people so perhaps this
    requires interpretation from a intermediary!
    Mr Trump means well-foot in mouth won’t
    help his political career but a crises in our
    country requires those unafraid to confront!

  553. Samantha

    June 27, 2015 at 11:35 am

    Everyone is so ready to fight and don’t listen to each other. Do we need to close our boaders? Yes. Although wonderful, hard working people come into the US, there are also those who would not be welcome in any country. Those unwelcome people hurt those who come here with a purpose to better their lives and those of their families. There is no way to control those entering other than closing those boarders. There are ways to make it legally into this country, Mexicans are not the exception because they our neighbors.
    The letter discusses her father’s accomplishments by coming into this country illegally (as we call it, apparently it is not the correct term) and providing for his family. A hard worker, educating his family. The author of the letter understandably takes offense to Trumps words.
    However, she also didn’t listen to his speech.
    How did dad pay for her education? A master’s degree doesn’t come cheap….
    I am a born American, of LEGAL immigrants have have tried and tried to obtain financial assistance for a higher education and was always turned down. Even when I was older supporting myself with a clerical job. I had to pay for my own education.
    How did this illegal Dad his daughter ear infection as a child? I imagine he ran her to the emergency room. How did her pay those outrageous hospital bills?
    I had an emergency surgery to remove my appendix, as I was working and paying my way through college. Guess what, I still am, 4 years later.
    Like it or not those boarders need to be closed, so those hard working, good people, without a criminal background can make it here legally and pay their taxes as everyone else in this country.
    All people living in the US support this country, not the government. The taxes we pay, support this country, that’s in debt.
    Immigrants are treated better in this country than their own country. I know that as a fact from being a daughter of LEGAL immigrants.
    In some cases illegal immigrants are treated better than this country’s citizens.
    I’m so tired of people getting a offended by the litter things.
    Do people really think that a little bit of support from Jorge Ramos is gonna affect a billionaire like Trump? No.
    Actually, Univision has proven Trumps point for his political campaign.
    He is insanely rich and doesn’t care who he offends. He is going to do what he thinks is right to better this country. He cannot be bought.

    Actually, mich, a lot of other countries still treat American visitors better than America treats its guests. You even used to be able to get free health care in Britain if you were ill or injured while there – but that stopped when America started being more punitive toward its guests.

    The people you really have to worry about are the companies in the US that fraudulently get H-1B visas for foreign workers who are there literally to replace American workers. This is illegal and should not be possible but it keeps happening. Direct your anger at *them*.

    June 27, 2015 at 1:01 pm

    Josh – I’m with you and so is a lot of other Americans. My Hungarian Great-Grandparents came here in the early 1900’s through the proper channels and became naturalized citizens. My other Great-Grandparents were 50% Iroquois Native American & 50% Pawnee Native American.

    America, before all of this illegal immigration started, was a Great Nation for the betterment of all nations after WWII such as Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, San Salvador, Cuba and other Latino nations that promote illegal cross border immigration. Money that was given to those nations by America were either mishandled or just downright stolen by their own governments & not used for the people.

    Why do Mexicans continue to pour across our borders in droves? Thousands of illegal immigrants from Central America are crossing the Rio Grande into the United States every month after hearing reports that people who make it across the border are being allowed to remain in America.

    There was a time when the majority of the illegals were Mexican laborers looking for work. That’s no longer the case, now couples from Central America with small children, and youngsters without parents, are daring to make the dangerous journey across Mexico to the United States. They are driven to flee their own country and gamble on being caught entering the United States illegally by the growing problem of poverty in their own homeland, along with the threat of increasing gang violence.

    Mexicans bring their own identity to our nation and most refuse to assimilate claiming that they have the right not to assimilate at the same time enjoying entitlements from the people of the country they inhabit.

    Yes, the United States is the world’s melting pot of culture but once a person comes to this melting pot become a United States citizen the proper way!

    While this is a sweet young lady’s response, sorry, dear, your father is a criminal as he came here illegally. At the time he entered the US most likely he could have gotten a work Visa. He could have then applied for full residency as many do. Perhaps he could have asked for the amnesty that has been allowed over the years. You do not mention is he ever became a citizen through legal channels. And then you mention that you go back to Mexico regularly. If he is going and returns without proper documentation he is again committing a criminal act.
    While he seems to be a good person and really has cared about you and the family, bottom line is he has a past that does contain illegal activity.

    While im sure the author of this letter is a hard workimg man, and im very glad she made something of herself, the fact remainsimmigration under Obama is not imigration thirty years ago. Ever heard of the Mexican cartels? There are many crimes going on here by our invading neighbors and for her to deny that is ignorance. Canadians dont flee here in hoards why should Mexicans. Not why would they want to, why are they allowed to? Terrorists from other places see open boarders and know exactly how to get in. Scary.

    Mr Trump said some of them were good people so she needs to be honest and not hypet sensitive about the situation.

    Immigration in itself is not a bad thing. But it needs to be monitored and done in correct fashion as it was years ago for the most part.

    June 27, 2015 at 2:43 pm

    Hey Josh, pack your stuff & get ready to leave, the Native Americans wants their property back. You see YOU ARE HERE ILLEGALLY. The Native Americans didn’t invite you or your family here. Matter of fact the US Government committed American Indian Genocide killing millions of Native Americans.
    1 Trail of Tears
    2 Sand Creek Massacre
    3 Wounded Knee Massacre
    4 Gnadenhutten Massacre
    6 Assimilation policies
    It also flew over this country when Kent State happened, when the race wars happened, etc etc etc. So which flag is more offensive to whom.

    So your opinion means NOTHING unless you pack your stuff & leave also.

    If someone from any country enters another country without proper documentation it is a crime. That one crime means they broke the law, but almost anyone has broke the law at some time. Unless you never went over the speed limit, never texted while driving…just a few common laws broken every day. Most of the Mexicans I know some broke the law to get here some didn’t but they all have had a strong work ethic, where as many Americans now feel entitled and are Lazy.

    Of course Donald Trump is wrong. But he’s also hiding the fact that hundreds of thousands of Mexicans work here for peanuts because —– immigration. But more importantly, so these same CEOs can call on their media lackey assets to tell everyone that “the Mexicans” (as they love to call you and yours) are “doing the work other minorities won’t do.” In REAL speak that means Mexican people are being used as pawns for CEOs and their legislator minions to falsely ostracize the entire population of Black Americans; so they can accuse us of “stealing” from them (how convoluted is that?!) while simultaneously claiming that if only we’d take those slave-wage jobs (yes, the ones they “give” to Mexicans here illegally) we’d “better our ghettos,” and ourselves (the ghetto properties owned by White slumlords who haven’t once attempted anything like normal property maintenance but claim Black people aren’t civilized enough to perform basic housing upkeep, right?!)

    Those issues should be obvious to another people of color who were and are subjects of conquest. However, somehow those issues get lost in translation, shall we say… and the vast majority of Mexicans will turn on Black people in a minute and call us, “miyaté” quicker than a White racist can say… well, you know what I mean.

    So, instead of Trump and those of his ilk having to face a mostly unified peopleS of color, be and his quite easily divide us from each other, so that, in the end, the Trump-a-likes get to have their cake and eat it too. They get your cheap labor and get you to side with THEM even though they mercilessly trash-talk your entire culture, just because they make sure you believe it’s “the Blacks” who are the real problem; and to curry favor with the Trumplumps and tell each other you’re his and their “preferred Other,” you’ll spew more hate our way than they could ever imagine.

    And guess who’s laughing all the way to the bank and continued power? Not Mexicans and not Black people.

    High born relatives like Mitt Romney??? Whose family fled to Mexico to escape U.S. law so the men could continue to be polygamous—- which I’m gathering carried over to Mexican women, as well? You mean THOSE Romneys? The Mormons who see non- White people as just above animals?… might wanna slow down on being proud to be associated with them.

    This issue is getting really out of hand. There is a lot of hear say and I think that we all first need to get the facts straight. Yes, there is currently a drug war in Mexico, but instead of discriminating on Hispanics we need to all unite and help the people of Mexico. We need to be able to help Mexico out like we helped out other countries. What breaks my heart is that the ones that are really suffering are the children that are caught crossing the U.S.border in hopes of being able to survive life. Their is so much racism that needs to go away!!! Please stop fighting against each other and unite to not only provide a better life for ourselves but for the innocent people who are suffering just because of being Hispanic.

If it wasn’t for the Mexicans we wouldn’t have fruits and vegetables in our grocery stores, we wouldn’t have the houses we purchase and live in and not to mention our road ways and gardens who does all of that. Latinos do. I have never seen a white or black sit outside in 100+ degree weather working their ass off to provide a better life to their family’s. So I would suggest u josh to look around and think again before u speak. I myself am an Spanish my family came from Spain as illegals to this country and now we’re citizens and I don’t get how so called Americans can bash on another country and race when they themselves are immigrants in the past. This country was owned by native Americans they are the true natives of the United States.

The immature kid that killed the 9 people wasnt mexican… so wheres the attention at that? Trump is not a worthy candidate, yet American. Because a true American is not racist, or has dumb remarks about ANY race whatsoever. We are all equal and have the same rights in they laws and eyes of America. This is USA and they take freedom of speech for granted.. how sad if he even gets voted for. Dont put USAs future in this ignorant man’s hands! He may be rich in wealth, but poor in morality. Shame on him and his followers, what example is he leading to our children, the heart and future of this country? The candidates should be focusing on how to make our home a better nation, and our allies, with positivity and respect… not bashing with racism.

    I’m Hispanic and my family came here lawfully . Trumps has my vote. I work in construction and I see a lot of legal citizens with companies losing work opportunities because these illegal workers working to cheap. Now that’s fine and dandy.But what’s really happening is that these workers pay no taxes,follow no laws and forget pulling legal permits.They continue to break the law and yes rob the wealth of America. Now legal companies have to follow the rules. If we keep rewarding this ignorance we will always be chasing our tails here in America. There kids maybe rewarded with a free education on our wallet and grow up in a false thought why they are right. Now we put these idiots in office! I like the thought that people want to come to America but let’s make sure there not terrorist. Not letting in a million people to catch one terrorist is okay in my book. Build the fence. The lady has a nice story but it is a unlawful story. Mexico is the new china. Open your minds up a little. Understanding global economics , currency value on the global stage , and the idea that says we are still trying to build a country here is what’s need and Trump understands this. Whats wrong with making America great. Yes we have idiots running the country. Yes they are stupid. Over spending fools!! Freaking public workers who got free educations on the tax dollar kids of those illegals who will never fully understand America are put in that office and continue taking and taking. No more mixing idiot’s in better off schools , no more free ride rewarding them with easy access to the wealth of America. Trump Trump Trump.

    Illegal entry into any country is still illegal. I am a Mexican American and I interpreted Trump to mean, that many of those who cross the border illegally are criminals, regardless of the country of origin. We have a process to immigrate into this country. Our laws should be followed. Everyone but native Americans are immigrants, that is what makes our country what it is today. That doesn’t mean that we can choose which laws we want to comply with. In a developed nation such as ours we must enforce our laws.

    In the turn of the last century when all the immigrants were coming thru Ellis Island, America could accommodate and actually needed the immigrants. Our economy is getting ready to hit the bottom these days. Jobless people ( legal tax paying Americans, esp. our Vets) should get the jobs now.Yes, we have criminals and undesirables like anywhere, but that doesn’t mean that we should be letting any unscreened, ” illegal ” immigrants in our country. We don’t need more criminals and or terrorists here. The Ellis Island and others just couldn’t walk thru the borders at will. Where else in the world can u do that ?

    Your comment would have been valid if you hadn’t mentioned the fact that Americans wouldn’t work in the field as you do… You have done hard work for 20 years and I commend you for it. But I find it highly disrespectful to class all “Americans” together and say they would not do such hard work. My grandfather and grandmother worked in the fields and groves their whole lives. My father and uncles all did the same when they were kids and teens just to help support the family. Being American does not make a person lazy. I think it’s safe to say that every country out there has the people who are willing to work hard and the people who are lazy.

    What’s racism these day.The liberal machine wants you to think it’s white and black.But the truth is there are very few cases of old school racism. The church case was horrible and a isolated case that pops up every now and then. Most racism is a sterotype of person. Judging a person by the way he or her looks clothes, tattoos,or any other style. Most kids get along just fine with one another. No one’s saying Americans hate unnatural ized we just want you to follow our rules to becoming a citzen. You can’t go to china,Russia and break laws then become a citizen. Get with the program. You’ll sleep better and do more in this country. You don’t have to take low paying jobs if you were a citizen.

    Ms. Adriana Almanza is a native born American citizen, the same as myself and possibly you. This is not just your country, “mich”. Let’s start right there. Personally, “mich,” I’m rather fond of reality. Would you care to join us?

    You neglected to make clear who you think this “our” covers that you strongly imply doesn’t include her. Do you also have a problem with reading comprehension? What are you talking about? What article did you read, “mich”? You seem fond of being emotional. Is that due to an inability to be rational? Does the problem come down to your not knowing the difference between having something to say and having to say something? All of the above? Is there some reason you didn’t use your adult name as she did?

    I agree with you Josh, everyone missed the fact that all her letter did was strengthen Trump’s allegations. She admits that her father came here illegally (for those of you who don’t get that, it means committing a crime) and he sent his money “home” and did not pay taxes. How exactly is working for someone who likely paid him a lot less than they were supposed to because of his status benefiting our nation? That makes two crimes. Why does everyone want to scream racism when the simple fact of the matter is that the problem is not immigration…it is ILLEGAL immigration. NO one is saying “go home” to legal citizens. They are “home.” It is the people who remain citizens of their own country and continue to support that country while reaping the rewards of living in ours that are the problem. People who don’t see the difference are either benefiting from the crime as this woman obviously did by being born an American citizen…or just burying their heads in the sand. So, like I said, her letter only served to prove Trump’s point and no matter what anyone thinks of him, myself included, I’m sure if he read it, he had the last laugh….as he should have.

    I don’t care to follow or go to a Mexican Propaganda page. Quite frankly, I don’t care to follow political issues that pertain to Mexico. We have our own problems here. It is up to the Mexican citizens to decide not Americans. The thing I care about is how illegal immigration is effecting America. My cousins and family were born and raised there. They are Mexicans. It is up to them and their children to decide on those issues and try to make Mexico great, not me nor any other foreigner.nor any illegal person should come here to try to demand rights. You can try to spin it all you want, but the bottom line is that you can’t turn a wrong into right. You have your opinions and I along with millions of Americans (who are against illegal immigration) have ours! Illegal people are coming into the United States via Mexico and that is a fact. So I think we are done. You don’t want a discussion, you want to distract and detour into another whole different topic that I really don’t know about and is really not my place to comment about. It may be good for Mexico’s economy or it may be bad, but we have to take care of our own citizens first. Adios

    First of all it’s here** not hear… Second of all.. Let’s take just minute to reflect on the MANYYY white serial killers.. I mean although they have never come from other countries they have manage to kill many people. Or how bout the many car accidents that are caused by mothers who get in the car DRUNK with their kids going the WRONG direction on the highway.. They were white too. Or what about the kid who killed all those kids at VA Tech. He was Asian. Or let try to remember Sandy Hook. A child who was ignored and had many MENETAL HEALTH ISSUES. What was he again?! In every place you go in this world there are bad people. People are bad EVERY WHERE YOU GO!

Natives were here 1st then came the white man.. You were just as illegal as Mexican were.. Except instead of taking over And forcing people out of their homes.. They come here to work hard and provided for their families.. Working for the lowest dollar because no “AMERICAN” wants to pick tomatoes in the fields.. But hey.. You got one thing right.. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

The predjudice i have encountered is outrageous. But yet my family of latin descent manage to work hard and prosper . I worked and retired and have a good pension… but i have sat back and watched as the promotions were given . And here i am training supervisor to b the best they can b. Not always fair. Its a hard road for many hispanics. I feel very sad when the predjudice is in our own race. Instead of helping these young kids see something better people like u promote the predjudice. Stand up for your people…teach them how great they can b. Love them for they r Gods children too.

    Are you kidding me josh? The jobs that are given to illegals are jobs that entitled americans feel are beneath them! You would not last one day as a migrant worker! Noone is stealing jobs here! Immigrants come here to better themselves and take jobs noone wants to perform. You ever work in a field all day? Sometimes 7 days a week? Because these americans take advantage of illegals and pay them next to nothing! So we take advantage of these honest hard working people and then use them as a whipping post when things dont go our way! Instead of bashing people who are different from you and came here for a better life, you need to recognize this is exactly how yYOU ended up here and we need to figure out a better way to help these people instead of blaming them for all that is wrong with America. Stop hate!

Just like every race, they are good people and bad ones, not just in Mexico, look at the news and educate yourself and see that every rapist, every terrorist, every drug dealer, etc.. is not always Mexican, or hispanics for that. Why be terrotorial to a country as diverse as this one, Many contributes to this country and many destroys it, but is not because of what race, we can distinguish who does good or harm to this country., that is just ignorant to think that way. I’m a born and raised new yorker with Hispanic backgrounds. What Donald Trump will say about me?

Work honestly.Now why is it that its only the hispanic race getting trashed. Theres also Asians,Africans,Russians all sorts of different races here that have entered illegally. Are you just bitter because now you have a mexican in the family? We are everywhere and we are not going anywhere!

Is Trump saying that these are legsl immigrants? If THAT is the case then we have a huge immigration problem within the immigration dept and THAT is the piece that needs to be fixed!!

    I am very blessed to have many precious Hispanics in my family circle … they just need to be able to come across legally as my ancestors have …

Mr Mich i urge you to read the 10 comandments those are real laws . Laws to truely live by if those laws were enforced as well as the laws that protect the rich and privalaged America would not only reside in 50 + states America would be world wide all united as the one who wrote those comandments and Mr. Mitch i also dare you to pick any non corporate job that a Latino,Hispanic or Imigrant witch ever one you choose to call use either way dosent matter we are proud of any of the three names or titles and bust back, sweat, tears, to really see what being An American is truely like now i know the fact of truth may hurt but this statement is not to hurt it is to fill in any gap or misunderstanding you or others may have about what limits and bounderies do exist before making statements like yours God Bless Us all human beings that on a day to day dont take the easy way out and truely put it all on the line for what truely matters no matter if your White,Black, Brown, Blue ,Yellow or green we all bleed the same color and we all want the same for America true freedom a life of peace everything els is just a plus .

    Can you really fault someone for being willing to do whatever it takes to provide for their family? People mention money being sent out of the country to their families, but what about the billions of dollars that go over seas each year with the trade imbalance that the U.S. has with most of the world. How many things that you buy every day are made in a foreign country? The amount of money lost to foreign nationals sending home money is a drop in the bucket compared with how much money is lost due to companies moving jobs overseas and the U.S. shifting to information dominant businesses and moving manufacturing to other nations. If you are proud to be American, than live a life that supports American businesses and industry. There is no need to debase an entire population because of lack of insight. I hazard to guess that if we could add up how much the wealthiest in our nation spend annually in foreign nations (boats, cars, homes, vacations), it would exceed the amount being sent to families in need. Would anyone like to disparage those who give to charities that do work in foreign countries? Maybe they should be labeled unpatriotic as well. If all it takes is supporting a global economy.

    before u say its our country remind your self that you are immigrants too. The whites or white people are descended from Europe that’s were ya’ll came from. Ya’ll to migrated here just like us Mexican did too so technically speaking this country belongs to the people native American u guys invaded killed and slaved for your benefits and also the western side of the country if u was taught right in school was owned by mexico until ya decided to do the same to us. So before u start making judgement learn whats really yours and don’t just assume.

    You are an idiot, it it almost impossible for a Mexican to enter the country legally; if it were that easy people wouldn’t be crossing illegally.

    Mich, You say you believe in God. The laws of Men are not the laws of God. It was once illegal in the United States of America for a Black Man or Woman to sit next to a “White person”. Do you really think God would approve of such an atrocious Law? It is illegal to say anything bad about eating meat in the United States of America. Where we are suppose to have freedom of speech.

    With that said what makes you this your country and not mine? I was born in the United States of America. So the fact that your ancestors have been here longer makes you more special than I? Who even knows if your ancestors arrived here legally? The fact that you may be white and your ancestors have been here longer does no make you any better or worse person. That that you just care about your self. Then that is another story. Educate your self and know your own history before you blurred out words that do not make any sense.

My step mother and her family 10 in total came t the US sponsored by my father, spent a year watching Sesame Street to learn English and then obtained their citizenship. My dad made them speak English outside the home and they are all financially successful. So where are all the ‘best’ Mexicans and why do they not learn English. I refused to speak Spanish on the job.

Freedom used to come at a price or sacrifice, many not all, but many now come with their palms up asking what do they get as opposed to what they can do to make our country better for ALL.

    July 2, 2015 at 2:47 pm

    You raise a good point. Many have their own stories of coming to this country and meeting the struggles to live on new soil. You say your family left behind a “cushy”lifestyle. Why would your father do that to his family? Why would he put you all new struggles in a new country? Probably to save you all from something horrific happening in your homeland right? Same thing for most who enter this land to adopt as their own. Unfortunately they don’t have the cushy lifestyle your family had to.come in LEGALLY. Maybe they don’t have the funds or merchandise your family had to.buy their way into this country. Most people back then had to trade off goods to make the list to get here. So before you pass judgment, think first what trade offs people have to do to save their families from horrific situations. I thank God everyday I am a 4th generation American because this is my mother land. I feel for those who have to flee theirs. Find Jesus in your heart. This world is temporary. Life ends for all of us at one point and we can’t take our possessions with us when we exit this world. I don’t know what religion or faith most reading this post are, but I’m a Christian before anything else. So if you’re here legally or illegally, make use of yourself for this country. Protect her and stop destroying her. We have enough enemies trying to bomb us and remove us from existence. We have enough sick people killing our children in their schools, killing our workers in their office buildings, bombing them during marathons. Stay focused on these issues. Migrating illegal Mexicans is but a small dot on the bigger issues. Besides for you who can’t seem to watch your own choldren, mow or landscape your own homes, cook your own meals or pick your own fruits, and lots more chores you pay mexicans to perform, you’d probably be lost. Who are you going to ask next? The Black man who resents slavery or the Asian man who secretly despises you for your laziness. Think about it.

    I have worked in restaurants with Mexican’s that are here legally. Most of them work 2 jobs, 6-7 days a week! They live very frugally and send most of their earnings home to their families in Mexico. So, I am sorry if they took a few low wage jobs cooking and washing dishes from you or other Americans that probably would not work them anyway.

    If you didn’t like the fact they spoke Spanish move your ass to a white only neighborhood and work on your accent.

Just walking on a pier in San Francisco with her dad by a illegal mexican that just killed her for the fun of it and has been deported 6 times she was only 32 .Why doesn’t this lady tell that father oh there is nothing but great illegal aliens coming from mexico.He would probably smack her in the face and spit on her because she is so stupid that bachelor degree didn’t do her much good.Wake up lady smell the coffee Donald was not talking about mexican americans you twit just illegal aliens coming over.

    Your country? Do you not understand the history of “this” country before illegal Europeans came? A large portion was the country of Mexico! Do some research before making false remarks. Please share with everyone the year and papers your ancestors gad when they came here.

  685. Heidi

    July 4, 2015 at 3:46 am

    Please share the year and documents your ancestors had when illegally entering the U.S.
    Quite simply, you are a racist. For decades Americans would run and hide in Mexico from the law. But I guess that’s ok because they were white.
    And yes Licha, countless illegals pay taxes. There are many Americans that don’t.
    Our government will allow illegals to join the military. They allow them to die or become disabled fighting our wars. Very interesting fact for you to ponder. So many things you aren’t aware of or you wouldn’t be making false statements.

    Ok so I understand where Donald comes from but lets be honest, how many Mexicans take for granted what this land has to offer? Not nearly as much as our citizens. Not just Mexicans but many foreigners come here with a purpose. From what I’ve seen personally, foreigners come with the mission of living “The American Dream” and so they humbly come and bust their ass’s off. Putting no excuses while being in extremely uncomfortable financial situations where many of us dare to complain, greatly taking for granted what “The Land of the Free” has to offer. Criminals are everywhere the only differences are that for the most part the majority knows how to cover their rears, therefore there is less exposures of their crimes making the manorities look like “The Bad Guys”. As for what is being stated about the “Criminals” coming over, again criminals are everywhere. The Media 98.9% of the time will give you the bad news because that’s what they focus on and it is what sells unfortunately. Men like this Woman’s father are the guys we don’t hear about which are doing great things behind the scenes and they most definitely deserve more respect see what happens is that we blame one race for several criminals. How ignorant is that. Its like going to a farmer and telling him his crops are no good I saw a few on the ends that were no good, if thats the case then we’re all no good and how offensive would that be? Guys lets lace up others shoes for a day before we play the blame game or begin to judge. Understanding will give this country peace and its past due time that we begin to do so we should be united and grow together. Opinions against opinions its exhausting this is why there are wars and so much disappointments lets let the pride go and listen for once, if this is truly the land of the free where is the Equality??? God bless everyone I don’t have any college so excuse my poor grammar. PS from another America citizen just like you.

    First of all let’s clarify that immigrants not paying taxes is a myth immigrants get taxes taken out of their pay checks as well but when they go file income tax they don’t claim that money on income tax returns the American government keeps that $ also as far as medical aid the ones that do get it pbly cheat the system but that’s flaw in the system itself also public aid doesn’t necessarily equal quality care so few that do have it resort to home remedies for common cold ear infections and such things and for lot things it will not cover everything so they still get a bill as far as education guess what some them take out loans perhaps get $500 scholarship which is not going get them very far or go to community college n pay their way through I know a immigrant who has 3 jobs and family and goes without sleep sometimes 48 hours because she has to make it to next job on time gas station restaurants waitressing ect as last reminder the people going to college if they end up going because lot just go straight in to work force , those that do go are children of immigrants born in America and therefor just as American as anybody else and like to clarify not all Mexicans have kids to just stay in this country having kids is blessing but I know Hispanic women that are over 25 to 35 and no kids yet that personal choice and finding the right person partner and being financially ready for it by having job or 3 jobs as is the case of the woman I know n her brother also that man works and works hard and definately not living here for free

    I would like to clarify one thing. At one time before the Constitution of the United States was drawn up, we the people, entered this country illegally and stole it from the native Indians that lived here. We illegally took their land, killed them, packed them up and moved them from where they lived to worthless land where they were unable to hunt and grow crops for themselves because we decided they didn’t deserve that land. And now the descendants of our forefathers of this great land we call the USA of would like to forget our history and try to stop others from coming exactly like our forefathers did, illegally, looking for a better way of life.

    Just some food for thought…

    Perhaps those of you advocating we close the “boarders” should go back to third grade to learn to spell BORDERS; and while you’re there, revisit the use of your vs. you’re. Most importantly, read a couple chapters of the American history book and realize much of the land constituting the U.S. was actually stolen from Mexico under the auspices of a pact. Finally, read the part of the history book which reminds you white folk that you were the original illegal immigrants who stole, raped, and pillaged.

  714. Sandra

    July 22, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    Actually, if you ever have the means to travel to any other country, you’ll realize the United States is the only place where citizens only speak one language. It’s the reason other countries look at US citizens as idiots incapable of being multilingual. The truly sad part is, even though you only speak one language, you can’t seem to master it.

    Except we took this land (America)–right or wrong–by force. If Mexico wants to do that, they are welcome to try. Otherwise, abide by the current laws and regulations to enter our country legally.

    Food for thought, EVERY person off the continent of Africa is “illegal,” since that was the birthplace of mankind. Over time, claims were staked, countries were formed, and some countries even changed hands many, many times. That does not mean the borders established today are insignificant.

  716. Jay

    July 23, 2015 at 7:50 am

    I’m hispanic and I love what Donald is doing for our great country!!!

    Most of you are too ignorant to really understand what is really happening here – so I’ll Help – The USA is being brought to its knees by assaults from every angle you can imagine. But I only want to focus on this one issue – illegal immigration.

    What is a border? Look it up, then ask yourself how a sovereign border between any country can go unmanaged — actually ignored!

    My family immigrated to the United States four generations ago. Yes – they followed the process and LEGALLY entered MY GREAT country.

    Why did they come here? I guess for the same reasons immigrants are still coming here today.

    Why did they wait and follow the legal process? Well…I guess it would be the respect for the country and people they wanted to embrace and become a part of. Probably also had something to do with their desire to contribute and not just consume. If you don’t innately understand my point, don’t try!

    Look – there is no difference in the reasons folks migrate to USA today than 50, 100, 200 years ago. The problem is the lack of respect for our laws and process we have seen grow exponentially over the last 2-3 decades.

    I’m proud to be an American. I don’t call myself a Mexican-American or African-American or any other idiotic “”-American phrase. My family came to this great country to be a part of it and become it!

    Note: if you don’t get this, and you’re ancestors are from Mexico – Go back!!! I want my future generations to grow up with Americans, not some bastardized version of what the USA has always been – The greatest, most free, most generous, most fair, most inclusive society every to grace this earth.

  718. Dean

    July 28, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    “We” did not do those things. Our ancestors did. Your logic is backwards. It’s like saying that because your Dad may have committed a crime against someone that it is ok for others to commit the same crime against you. We now have an established country with laws that every citizen is expected to follow. We have trouble getting everyone to comply. Why add to that problem by letting anyone from any country come here and commit crimes. Entering this country without permission is a crime. If anyone from any country comes here illegally they are a criminal. One can’t say “I came here illegally but I’m not a criminal. I forged documents to work or I work and get paid under the table but I’m not doing anything wrong and am a good person.”

    Absolutely! Now that it has been declared publicly that he came here illegally, it’s time for him to be deported. I’d say that no matter what country he came from. He may have raised her to become educated, but unfortunately, you can’t teach common sense and you can’t fix stupid. She undermined her point multiple times in her letter and admits to her Dad being an illegal. That proves the point that, just as in this case, we are not getting the best and brightest minds from Mexico. We’re getting people who are okay with their first act in America -crossing the boarder without permission, being a crime. Then, they are having kids and raising people who are too dumb to know when their open letter incriminates them. She might have graduated college, but that doesn’t make her smart.

    Yes, he does. But, he was talking about illegals. Not the ones who come here legally and then work their ass off. I’m sure he doesn’t hire illegals at his hotel. I’m sure some of them are liars and have forged documents in order to work for him but when he finds out, they are fired. No successful business man would risk his business, his lifestyle, his reputation, or his freedom just to hire illegals. There are plenty of low class, uneducated, and minimum wage worker types of all races here. We don’t need any more people like that of any race from any country coming here, especially if they are illegal.

That goes for anyone in any country.

  727. Dean

    July 28, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    Your dad wasn’t the type of people Trump is talking about. Your dad earned his citizenship and, obviously, was the best when it came to courage, honor, and service. We need more people of all races in America to be like your dad. People need to go through the proper channels in order to obtain permission to enter, live, and work here. Our military still accepts people to go and fight for America in exchange for citizenship. That is one of the legal ways to move here. When Trump said we aren’t getting the best, he was right. The best people would go through the proper channels (military included) to get here and not have their very first act in our country be committing a crime (entering illegally). We don’t need more criminals. People who come here illegally from any country lack honesty, integrity, and respect. We don’t need more people like that. When you generalize, make assumptions, and throw insults in your posts, you are doing the very thing that Trump did to offend you. And, it makes you seem classless, petty, and immature. Not saying that you are these things, but it comes across that way.

    MS13 is a Salvadorean gang, not a Mexican gang. And it started as a direct result of Reagan policies in Central America. Many of the people who lead the gang were part of death squads run by the Salvadorean ARENA party which was the ultra-Rightist party. A man who is a candidate for sainthood, Monsignor Oscar Romero, was assassinated by ARENA pistoleros while offering the Mass. If anything, we have only ourselves to blame for MS13.

    Ask the people on welfare that question, when does the money I’ve earned belong to you? What is so hard to understand? Nobody with a brain in the US has a problem with people immigrating here but when your first official act is to kick in our front door, do you really expect a warm welcome. We have laws, if you want to go to a country other than your own it must be because it is better than where you came from, if you don’t follow our laws we certainly have the right to send you back to where you came from. And one more thing if you do come here we don’y need any Mexican: Americans we don’t need any African:Americans we don’t need any European: Americans or ANY hyphenated Americans we just need Americans, if you want to be on the same team welcome.

    Danny, your comment is great. I appreciate your telling off the other guy. I still gotta tell you, buddy, Mexico is not part of the United States. Mexico is part of North America, and it’s a separate country from the United States. When people say America, they usually mean the United States.

    North America is a continent with three countries in it: Canada, the United States, and Mexico

    he never said that ALL Mexican immigrants are rapists and murderers, just a some of them (and that’s too many), and mainly the illegal ones. If this hardworking a productive intellectual came from Mexico and made America better for it, then he is not what the future president was talking about, nor does he disprove anything he said.

    Please stop insulting the intelligence of the American voters, we have to deal with this exact same bullshit, every four years, with no exceptions. You can bet your bottom dollar that we know all the tricks by now and we can see straight them them. You need to modernize your tactics if you want to stay effective.

    I see where the Mexicans and Illegal Aliens are coming from as far as being illegal aliens but they are misguided about the reality here.

    In their country, like Mexico, those poor Mexican immigrants have no way of seeing a steady flow of jobs in their country. Their economy doesn’t have that sort of power and clout to give at least 60% of their People a job.

    So, they have been born into poverty for generations with no prospect of getting a jobs that fits their unskilled level. The U.S. is about the only country that got jobs at all economic levels.

    So, when you have a poor Nation of People like the Mexicans come to the U.S. and can get a job in McDanalds or in the farm industry, that is a financial boon for them for they do not get those opportunities in their 3rd world country.

    This is why they are “hard workers” because they don’t get opportunities like this in their country. Whereas, Americans citizens are way more spoiled and consider their options which jobs they want to take.

    Mexicans that sneak in here, and see this about American citizens and immediately become jealous of American citizens and take our jobs and think we don’t deserve it because of how we consider our options which jobs we do.

    This is where they are misguided. For one thing, it is not their business how we are in our country. So, for them to make comments against Whites and Blacks not doing jobs they would do, does not mean they are harder workers than us. We got it like that. This is our country. And we built our country and economy. Not you.

    We are just two different manners of People. We live in our country. They dont. We want a decent wage…a living wage to do work. Illegals don’t care about that because it’s better than anything they’re getting out of Mexico.

    And they come here envy at Americans for having job opportunities at their finger tips and think we are too spoil to be picking or choosy that they become jealous of Americans and that’s what turn the country off about them.

    Add to that, their refusal to assimilate and speak English at all times. So, that makes them one of the worst immigrants to be attracting to our country. Not hard work.

    Every country’ nationals are hard workers, even America are hard workers than all of Mexico. If we wasnt, we would be a superpower nation….but look at Mexico. They are a 3rd world Nation/People so, this “hard worker” notion is overrated.

    And since they have been flooding our country illegally, their “hard working” notion is killing our country, ruining our economy and we are already falling to 3rd world status…….because of them: Mexican Nationals!

    So, to the Author of the Facebook message to Trump, you are misguided. Your attitude is axactly what why we don’t want you here. You just expressed your loyalty to Mexico, to your Dad and don’t even care about your Master Degree but care about your Culture as you stated.

    And that culture is rooted in Mexico; making you the LAST IMMIGRANT we want being citizens among us because your loyalty is CHEAP.

    You should pack up and move to Mexico if you fell that way. When the Slave came here, they was made to forget their culture/language and all. It messed them up in the beginning but today, they are better off as America than in Africa.

    And they don’t send money back to Africa, they put Africa over America. They don’t fly the African flag, they don’t promote African soccer.

    They have assimilated, became loyal to America, through and though. When they speak about their culture, it’s the American Culture…not Africa.

    This is where you failed and why so many of you are misguided on that reality. You are the least among the immigrants we would want to emigrate here. So, congratulate yourself on that for we will soon deport the lot of you and keep the one that really want to be American citizens with NO LOYALTY TO MEXICO.

    Some mexicans are the descendents of the native americans. The people wich country were stolen by your european acerstors. So, the country that you live in today, has never being yours, never were and never will. If the mexicans schould go “home”, so please also pack your back and go back to europe, because that is your home.

    The immigrant “ancestors” you are referring to had to be documented, they couldn’t be sick and they could not be criminals. There was protocol in order to enter this country back then. A lot of immigrants that are crossing our borders are doing it so that their kids can ride our gravy train. Please don’t get all of your news from The Daily Show; Jon Stewart single handedly brainwashed an entire generation with a series of grunts and eyebrow raises.

    I’m tired of those who criticize candidates for wanting to end “illegal” immigration! YOU SHOULD BE CRITICIZING MEXICO FOR NOT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN PEOPLE!!!! Why the hell should Americans continue to foot the bill?! And Trump is right when he says illegals make thousands of dollars here then send the money back home to Mexico – I bet the Mexican President LOVES that!

    How far back do we want to go? EVERY COUNTRY WAS INVADED AND TAKEN OVER AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER. But now we have laws that we must abide by. I’m Native American, but I focus on the here and now. Our country has to draw a line and say enough is enough. No one is focusing on the responsibility of Mexico. They have many, many natural resources, so why the hell can’t they take care of their own people? I don’t understand why we Americans fight amongst each other when we should be directing our anger toward the Mexican government!!!

    Mexico s “Best” have jobs skills and homes there and aren’t being sent anywhere. Only those who can’t make it there want out. They break our laws to get here and don’t care.It is all about them.Trump is right. There may be a few exceptions, but not many.

    You cannot even spell properly, you low-minded idiot. The real problem is the two trashy morons you call your parents but whom the rest of the planet calls unfit, oversexed trailer trash couldn’t f$$k and figure out basic birth control at the same time. Come back when you have learned how to be human, boy.

    Are you sure you aren’t talking about your conservative husband, boyfriend, father or brother, honey? They do seem rather angry and hateful at times. Now stop watching Fox News and get off your behind and get a job now, con woman.

Get out into the real world, honey, or is life just too hard for your weak, pampered ones? Why don’t at least raise better sons, conservative women? The ones you do raise seem to have a lot of problems. Beggars cannot be choosers, dearie

    I am a 45 yr old American with a wife and a 4 yr old little girl I have sworn to provide for. I spent 20 yrs as a plasterer. At 41, with a newborn baby I was forced to find a new trade because no one would hire me because I wasn’t mexican. I took my life savings ($5,000) and spent it on welding school. For every 1 mexican I got away from in the plastering trade, there is 20 of them vying for the same welding job I am. I am unemployed and desperate to provide for my family. I blame these Mexicans for stealing my means of supporting my family. I also blame our politicians for siding with the chamber of commerce. I find myself out of options. My country has betrayed me.

    Only someone that became an immigrant like yourself can make stupid and ignorant comments like that. If you are not a native American then just shut your mouth because you and your ancestors are in the same boat. DO YOU KNOW THE NATIVE LANGUAGE BEFORE EUROPEANS CAME TO THIS COUNTRY. IF YOU DO NOT THAN WHY ARE YOU EXPECTING OTHERS TO DO WHAT YOU GUYS DID NOT DO YOURSELF!!!!

    Am I correct in understanding that most folks here simply do not want a border to exist between the United States and Mexico and also believe that the individual should decide for himself/herself what laws should be obeyed. That seems accurate..?

  759. nwsunni

    September 1, 2015 at 3:21 am

    I, too, am of Mexican descent. My great grandparents were Mexican and came here legally. And like you, I’m also with Trump on illegal immigation. I know of no United States law that states that if you come to the United States illegally but work very hard and are very nice, you will be a citizen. These folks are simply taking advantage of Americans’ desire to be caring to all, a noble goal, but easily taken advantage of.

    ‘El Norte’ as they call it? It’s the United States. Not Mexicos’ lost property. If you are all so superior to us with harder workers and smarter people and superior race, why can’t you make your own country work? You’ve got to come up here and take our jobs, housing, training, education and resources. And money. You have all of Mexico, Central and South America, all that land and those resources turned into one corrupt drug cartel.
    Stop bringing your drugs into our country.. Mexican drugs destroy American lives.
    You’re so much better than us. No, you’re not. You’re like a plague of locusts. Depleting our resources and laying your eggs to let your offspring take over.
