Why are we still debating the Mexican issue? The biggest story on the immigration front is that Asians surpassed Hispanics as the largest group on immigrants in 2010. BTW almost all Asian immigrants enter the US legally because the border between China and California is 2000 miles wide and a mile deep. They are taking high paying jobs because America can't educate enough of it's children to meet the demand.

The Mexican issue will take care of itself. Most 2nd generation Mexicans I have known and grew up with are extremely successful. People should be less worried about the welfare these people are receiving and more concerned with preparing their children to compete with these highly motivated individuals in the work force.

I was particularly amused at the quote:

"it really bothers me when I pick up something at the store and it's in a different language, because I feel like when we're her in the United States I feel like things should be in english".

Come on, its 2012. The world is changing by leaps and bounds. What people need to realize is that if they don't change, they'll join the dinosaurs.

Orem, UT

I don't know. When I go into the Wells Fargo in Orem's Center Street, and I feel like I am back in Southern California, it bothers me. It's not as easy as bigotry, it's about protecting our way of life without the quality of the community being driven to 3rd world standards. Take a tour of many of San Diego's areas, and you'll see what happens. It's not good.
