You are correct when you state that Mexicans are not interested in pursuing a religious agenda. I stressed that point when I compared the differences in the demographic makeup of the immigrants to Europe as opposed to the bulk coming to the U.S.

What I was getting at, though, is that chaotic and unfettered immigration brings undesireable results. Also, it is harmful to the host country to allow immigration of elements of those groups who are openly (or covertly) hostile to that country. Islamists are obviously hostile to their host countries. There are elements of the Mexican population that are hostile to the U.S.

While most of the Mexican/OTM illegal immigrants may be hard working, close to 30% of the prisoners in our penal system are illegals. The tax payer pays for the disposition of their cases and the cost of their incarceration. Border states are broke paying for the cost of education, medical care, and welfare benefits for illegals. Mexican women come across the border intentionally to give birth to a baby on U.S. soil, knowing that the child will be considered a U.S. citizen and thereby making it unlikely that she will be able to be deported; these babies are called "anchor babies."

More alarming is the number of Mexicans who believe that the Southwest belongs to Mexico. According to the Zogby International Poll 58% of Mexicans agree with the statement, "the territory of the Southwest U.S. rightfully belongs to Mexico." Only 28% disagree and 14% are unsure; 57% agree with the statement, "Mexicans should have the right to enter the U.S. wilthout U.S. permission. http://www.immigrationcontrol.com/AIC_Zogby_Mexican_Poll.htm

If we are not careful, in time we could have our very own little "intifada" right on American soil. In fact, the Mexican supremacist groups have compared their situation to that of the Palestinians.

Now, I don't know about you, but the above statistics do not give me much comfort. Is this a group of people who really want to become a part of the American fabric, or dominate it? True, it has nothing to do with religion, as I stated in my last post, but the supremacist element is there as it is in the Muslim immigrant population to Europe for different reasons. Different, yet similar.

Groups such as MECHA and LaRaza preach a supremacist and separatist ideology. I'm not down with that. I made a mistake in my last post. The website address should have read
www.wehategringos. I am against ANY ideology which embraces an aggressive supremacist ideology, regardless of whether that ideology is based on religion, race, or ethnicity.
