  • I don't assume shit about anyone.. least of all people who aren't white.. wth does that got to do with it? I knew a guy that was british and was in the states illegally... and you know canadians do it too... so why do people care if cubans and mexicans come illegally.. you don't hear them bitching about canadians stealing our jobs... ugh.

  • I don't assume who is here legally or illegally, but I would support any police officer that was asking for that person's ID if they were caught breaking a law.  I would also support deportation if they were found to be in the country illegally.

  • Refuse? It's a free country isn't it? Wouldn't they have "Freedom of speech" regardless if it's in English or not?

  • Not in Arizona. Most of the people I see aren't white. I live in a "Mexican" neighborhood in Tucson.

    Exactly. No one gives a shit about white people coming here illegally. Only brown and yellow people it seems.

  • So you wouldn't think it was wrong for the police to ask them for papers, etc. just because they could be illegal immigrants if they don't LOOK American or speak English? THat makes it okay?

    Yeah I hate it when people speak a different language right in front of my face. It's annoying.
