Faqi, although this is getting a bit off topic from the main issue, I have to disargee with you on the problem with Mexico. You wrote:

"They have no intention of changing the US , as Muslims want to."

Actually, they do. They're just not as in-your-face about it. Make no mistake, Mexicans want to turn America into Mexico II. A vast majority of them refuse to assimilate. They do not want to learn English, they do not want to buy American products, they do not want to be faithful to America. I live in a neighborhood that used to be all white european, and is now mainly Mexican. Many of them are here illegally, and even the ones that are here legally refuse to speak English. They prefer to shop in Mexican grocery stores instead of American ones, they prefer to dine in Mexican restaurants instead of American ones, etc. They are pushing all the traditional American businesses out, and replacing them with El Supermarcados that have signs written only in Spanish and where workers only speak Spanish. This past summer they marched in the streets by the millions, demanding that the US government allow cater to illegal aliens and give them rights they are not entitled to.

They are a subversive element, every bit as much a threat to the United States as the Muslims are. They are nothing more than a human cancer eating away at the health of the UNited States.

"Nor are there Mexican terrorists."

Not terrorists as we generally define terror, however they are committing acts of terror and heinous crimes against Americans, then jumping the border back home, where the Mexican givernment shelters them from American justice. They're importing massive numbers of gang members from Mexican gangs like MS13 and others. Crime rates skyrocket where they settle. My neighborhood used to be quiet, peaceful, and serene until the Mexicans arrived. Now there is graffiti everywhere, gang signs painted all over, drug dealing, vandalism, shootings, etc. This happens in every neighborhood they settle in, without fail. Mexico is exporting low life Mexicans (it isn't the rich ones coming over) who are criminals, who are drug addicts, who have diseases we wiped out in the past, etc. They're flooding the landscape and driving out English speaking Americans and people who don't want to live in the barrio, which is what they turn it into. Hospitals are closing because of all the illegal Mexicans, and they are costing our country tens of BILLIONS of dollars per year that drains our economy. That's terror, if you ask me.

You then said:

"Mexicans come to the US to earn a living and help their families not to terrorise, or change the status quo of the US."

Untrue. Mexicans (especially illegals) have higher rates of incarceration, higher rates of unemployment, higher rates as welfare recipients, etc than Americans do. Why is that? If they're "willing to do the jobs Americans won't do", to use that old canard, then does their demographic receive more welfare and unemployment per capita than the rest of us? They also have a higher teen birth rate, a higher percentage of illegitimate children, higher rates of domestic violence, etc.

Do the research. Learn the truth.

You say:

"It is not the Mexicans who are disrupting our society with their demands"

I'm sorry, but that's absolutely dead WRONG! Where were you this summer when they paraded in the streets in the MILLIONS, blocking traffic and disrupting business while demanding that the American government ease off the already pathetically lax immigration enforcement, demanding amnesty for all the Mexican criminal aliens who broke into the country and have stayed here illegally? Even the government in Mexico is demanding we not build a wall or deport Mexicans. Why? Because illegal aliens sending money home to Mexico is now the #1 source of income for the Mexican economy. They're literally leeching off the USA and feeding like a virulent cancer off our culture and our society.

Yes, Islam is a greater worldwide threat, and a great terror threat, but Mexicans are a greater threat by far to America, because they are literally a human cancer eating at the very soul of America. Before anyone starts screaming "racist!" towards me, let me point out that in a body, cancer is nothing more than rebelious cells that that do not want to assimilate and be part of the greater body. Every cell in your body assimilates and works towards being you. Cancer cells refuse to assimilate, they refuse to become part of the body, hence they form a malignancy, a tumor, which spreads its damage and overruns the body until the body dies. Mexicans are doing the same thing...arriving in massive numbers, refusing to assimilate, and setting up their own tumor-like anti-American culture within the body of America. That is, by definition, a cancer. I have no problem with Mexicans who come over legally and who stand up for immigration enforcement, and who assimilate and who learn to speak English. It's these rebellious ones who are the problem.

So yes, Mexico is a greater threat to America than Islam.
