I'm writing a paper about the treatment of Mexican immigrants and other Latino immigrants, both legal and illegal. What are some of the prejudices you have or have seen about Latinos? If you are Latino, what experiences have you had with prejudices? If you immigrated here (legally or illegally), what was your motivation? Thanks for sharing!
I don't want illegals here because I end up having to support them and their children. Schools, reduced price lunches, ESL teachers... I pay for their medical care, they have no insurance. Other countries don't allow this, why do we?

I'm asking you~ why is not wanting someone in this country ILLEGALLY defined as a prejudice? Do you know the definition of Prejudice? How does the definition of Prejudice fit in with the view of not wanting someone in this country ILLEGALLY?

I think it's closed minded to say that just because a person is against illegal immigration that means they're prejudiced against Latinos. It's not just Latinos that are here illegally.

So, by your answer to grly, not wanting any group to be here illegally is prejudging them. Is that true if we don't want any criminal to be allowed to get away with the crime? Are we prejudging. I have no prejudices about Latinos or any other group, but your question is, as a matter of irony, a prejudice question. You are assuming we have them. An assumption is a pre- judging of a person.
