Mexican-born comedian Paul Rodriguez stunned the CNN panel on illegal immigration when he advocated for DEPORTING illegal aliens who have flooded the border in recent months.

Anchor Don Lemon embarrassed himself by suggesting that  legal immigrants (meaning Hispanics) like Rodriguez can’t possibly be against illegal immigration. Wow, he really did go there.

Rodriguez would have none of it, even taking on a priest who was advocating for mass amnesty. Way to go, Paul!

Why is that shocking? Poll after poll shows that immigrants who are already here are against illegal immigration.

Paul Rodriguez is right. Amnesty sends the wrong message. It’s impossible for the entire world to come here.

As I recall, he has property in Central CA where the water was shut off to the farmers to protect a fish in the Delta. He’s no doubt sick of anything stupid that the gov’t has their claws into.

It was said at the time that he became Conservative after seeing what happened with the water situation.

Many are, the exception being groups like La Raza and its followers. Of course they undoubtedly favor Mexican illegal alien immigrants over Central Americans.

Paul Rodriguez stunned the CNN panel on illegal immigration when he advocated for DEPORTING illegal aliens who have flooded the border in recent months...what's really stunning is the idea that Latinos are so stupid that they wouldn't understand the danger and illegality of this mass immigration ploy. and in fact the whole idea that they are in favor of anything but legal immigration under the laws we have - if 'pubs would start emphasizing this instead of running away from enforcing the laws we have, they'd probably make big gains among legal Latino voters.....

One of my wife’s cousins had been waiting 10 years to legally immigrate from the Philippines

I told her to have him go to Mexico and then pay a coyote.

This is what I have found doing my own polling... since I now live in a phoenix neighborhood that has become little Mexico... I have asked numerous Hispanic neighbors during yard sales etc... and they are all pretty much in agreement that they need to get in line and come legally. It is the younger Hispanics that have been all fired up in school by being taught that things are not equal for them....
What drives me NUTS currently is the lefts arguement saying that George Bush’s law has Obama’s hands tied... but if the border had been secured, it would be a mute point, because they would not be here...
Now I am reading leftists conspiracy whispers that it was the Republicans that got this influx started to make Obama look bad... What a crock, The Obama administration has been stirring the pot of civil unrest since he came into office... Its the only way he can be a 3 term president, by getting the shit rolling so bad that he can declare martial law... all the local small town police departments have been sufficiently militarized... so thinking time is getting close now.

The perception is that all immigrants want a massive influx of illegal aliens from the lands of their birth. That tends not to be the case.

As one of them bluntly told me, "Those are the < racist/bigot/sexist/homophobe remark censored > that I came here to get away from!"

Well that's the problem (for liberals). Legal immigrants often respect the traditions of being American. Liberals want to chip away at that. They want to make it easy for illegals to be incorporated into America (and vote) because they won't necessarily have that pro-American "problem". Illegals just walk across and don't pay their dues. So many (not all) do not have the respect for our traditions that legal immigrants have

> Poll after poll shows that immigrants who are already here are against illegal immigration.

And conversely, poll after poll of "hispanics" show that they overwhelmingly support immigration reform.

But these purposely pro-immigration polls omit any facts about the immigration status of the participants.

If factual immigration information were also taken into consideration, it would show that the vast majority of supporters of immigration reform are also illegal aliens.

But that's not the worst part, because if both GOPe and DEMs fear losing "latino" support over immigration, that means they also KNOW AND CONDONE ALLOWING ILLEGALS TO VOTE.

As a mixed European I would say the same thing if we were being flooded by illegal European immigrants. We have too many people on welfare, too many on food stamps, too many unemployed and our national date is currently at astronomical levels. We really cannot take in any illegals. Heck some countries require legal immigrants to deposit a certain amount of cash in the bank before being given citizenship.

I worked with an American-born Mexican American.

You think I'm right wing?

This guy almost makes me blush with his views.

The only thing we EVER disagreed on was the Arizona law about illegal aliens.

He was really insulted that because he's brown he'd ever have to show his "papers".

I see his point. He's a red-blooded American. Through and through

Why SHOULD he be lumped in with illegals?

And YES, he's very anti-ILLEGAL immigrant.

“Immigration reform” is a very vague term

Wanting the border sealed and illegals deported is “reform” too

Yup, and yet the Republicans do not make this argument. The fact that this is a winning argument with the vast majority of Americans, no matter what their skin color or ancestry, is no mystery -- yet the Republicans don't even try to make this case. It just leads me to the conclusion that with a few exceptions (e.g., Cruz, Palin, maybe a few others), our 'leaders' just belong to the same 'Big Government' party. They'll stage their Kabuki play acting -- but they'll both just continue to push the expansion of Big Government, and the enslavement of the citizens.

That is the other side of the coin. What message does it send to the thousands who have been trying to immigrate legally and have been waiting for years? Some for decades. Our lawless president and Congress continue to reward lawlessness.

mi casa es su casa which was a courteous phrase used by those of Spanish decent that lived in Mexico and the southern US. It was a gesture of friendship and true hospitality.
I have heard it and understood it and enjoy those memories as a child.

It has lost its meaning.
I’ll never set foot in Mexico again.
It has changed and not for the better.
What saddens me is how much they had and probably will never have again.

If the history is correct Santa Anna spared the women and children at the Alamo. His counterpart today would pimp them out.

I know a lot of folks that fought to come here and got citizenship legally, not just Hispanic. It is a lengthy process that costs a lot of money.

They are furious.

Identity politics.

If you don't fit the mold that the MSM made for you, you will be forced into it anyway.

There is too much at stake, and too much money and influence lined up and mobilzed to let any one outlier to wreck it all.

Maybe he should think about changing his name to Paul Rodriguez Zimmerman?

I’ll never go to Mexico again either. I had three good, cheap vacations. Those days are gone.

The last time I was leaving, at the airport the agent was rattling Spanish at me. That was understandable since I tan really dark really quickly. (Heck, if I walk to the mailbox I get tanned, lol) I asked if he could speak English. He kind of sneered and said “Yes, but why should I?” Of course he was right...I was leaving. Not coming in to drop a lot of money in his country.

I don’t vacation often. But if I do, it will be in the US. Lots of things I haven’t seen in this country. Or this state for that matter!

The added benefit...I won’t have to deal with the infernal airlines.

That’s why I cant figure why most of the Hispanics vote for the Liberal Democrats... Most of the ones that I talk to are very, VERY Conservative! My neighbors are extremely hard workers and damn good neighbors. Guess it points to how good at mis-leading the Democrats really are, got the minorities believing the evil Republicans are coming after them. I will give them this, with the majority of the mainstream media in their pocket, they sure have gotten proficient in twisting conservatives words and making people believe the twisted misquotes...

Lengthy process? Not really. If you exclude the five year waiting period.
Costly? No, not really. The application fee was minimal. There was a no brainier test.

Altogether, the process was simple and inexpensive.

Now if ine has to take classes to learn the language, that might cost some bucks .

The pro Lem with LEGAL immigrants from a anywhere is that they a can demand higher wages and workspace protections that illegals don’t dare make a fuss about. That is why the corporate toadies in both Parties won’t close the borders.

A dear friend who just passed away at 74 was an American born to two legal Mexican immigrants. He and his extended immigrant family were heavily against the illegals for all the same reasons the rest of us are. The legal immigrants from all countries are as much against these illegals as we are.

Can you say “My house is your house” in Mayan.
That is the language from there.
Now we will have, press #1 for English, #2 for Spanish, #3 for Mayan.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayan_languages

I am a legal immigrant from Canada and during the first campaign of the One against McCain I helped run the Republican office here and our most dedicated volunteers were from Communist countries and would always ask “Where are the Americans that were born here?”

When I first got my green card I had to sign a statement that I would not be dependent on the government for any reason.
When I got sworn in, hubby asked where I wanted to go eat to celebrate, I told him let’s go have Mexican food and a few Margaritas to celebrate all these Hispanics that just got sworn in. (Of course I love Margaritas anyway and was joking, but, that was years ago and there were plenty coming in legally.
I am beyond po’d here about this mess, Obama is doing more to transform America than I thought he would do.
I thought he would wait to do more after the election this year, but, I think he thinks he has lost the Senate and now why wait.
God Bless America, please.
