OP posted this previously: Because "we" haven't legally termed Mexican's as refugees??
Beachcomb replied with this: Yes cause we should just do that at will regardless any facts. So let's just check the definition of "Refugee" shall we?
"Under the United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees from 1951, a refugee is a person who, owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion, is outside the country of their nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail him/herself of the protection of that country."
***How exactly do Mexican citizens fall into this definition?? You do realize that you're basically insulting actual refugees when you suggest that right?***
How should I interpret her last sentence?? Edify me please.

Sounds like you, OP have issues with the UN's definition of 'refugeee'..... And in case you didn't know Arizona Law = Federal Law. So if you take issue with the AZ law, then you might want to take that up with Congress.... This isn't Rocket Science, but it does require ones ability to read and comprehend.... GOOD LUCK! :o)
