Dude!

C'mon - I understand your frustration, but this is uncalled for.

Several reasons:

  • Although latinos are the most popular immigrants in the US, we are not the only ones...people from all over the world are waiting for comprehensive immigration reform, just like us - Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe
  • Arabs? They are Muslim of Chechen origin, but they are Radical, Extremist, Muslims. I know many muslims who are just super awesome and great friends - Arabs and Africans

Hopefully this won't have an adverse effect on the debate (although I think it will), and hopefully I was able to clarify some of your confusions.

Saying that are all Arabs are Terrorists is akin to saying that all Mexicans are lazy, all Colombians are drug dealers, etc etc.

Just saying - let's avoid generalizations

I agree with Santi 100%, its these same generalizations that have kept immigration reform stalled for so long. Im sure youre all very familiar with the "theyre gonna steal our jobs" line of logic.

generalizations hurt more than they help. hoplefully people will look at this with a level head and see that it was too individuals with extreme ideologies that did this, and not some immigrant conspiracy.

I agree with Santi, lets not generalize; I have a bunch of Muslim friends two of Chechen origin and they are super chill.

I agree with the generalizations part, but I can't help but still want to generalize some white (trash) dare I say the word trash???? US citizens who have all the privileges we dream of having (citizenship, work immediately upon turning 16, apply for federal finacial aid, get DL at 16, etc...) and dont value it and instead prefer to get in line for welfare and are accusing us illegals of coming over to do just that...sorry personal rant here..but its true...

Even Rubio will fight - for political reasons, but he will fight...he is looking after his interests! - Read: Republican nomination in 2016

Well -

There are also Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Africans, African-Americans, etc that fit your description...

It all depends on goals and determination...if you strive for success, you will achieve it...if you have a sense of entitlement and believe the government owes you something, you will fit the description provided above

I definitely do not have a sense of entitlement. And I hate people who do. I believe if you are a citizen in the greatest nation of this world it is a PRIVILEDGE to be able to work and support yourself and your family. The citizens of this country are known around the world as ignorant, stupid, lazy and arrogant, and that is not true for the vast majority. But getting in line to take advantage of SS benefits just because receiving a $400 check evey week is better than flipping burguers for $300 a week, is shameful for any citizen of any country. In Brazil people work a whole month to receive $600 reais, which equals $300 dollars, and yes it is accordingly to what the price of things are there, but it is the equivalent of people here accepting minimun wage and working just for that. And let me tell you, I personally do not know one signle American citizen who will work for less than $15 bucks/hr here in MA, far less for minimun wage. And that is the main reason why so many American citizens choose to receive welfare and most non documented immigratns always have jobs and do not live off the government. Which boggles my mind because isn't it more shameful to receive money from the government when you are perfectly physically capable of findind a job? It doesn't matter that you find that job demeaning, it is still a job, but no, for some mystifying reason, they would rather stand in line for welfare than to actually stand in line to apply for McD's or BK. They would rather get "free money" for nothing, than far less money than they think they deserve for honest work.

Plain and simple, that group of people, to which I personally refer to as "free loaders", are despicable, and they are not the majority of the country, thank God, but what frustrates people like me and Itzel is that we don't have a legal right to work and even go to school in the country where we grew up, and these people take this for granted, and in this situation, it is maddening seeing a chance like this thrown away because it is not something that you can transfer to the next person, an American citizen just wastes it, literally, throws it away for welfare instead of making something of his or herself and going through the rough like us. ( I'm assuming this is how you feel, Itzel, sorry if I am putting your name here and you don't feel like that, please call me on it if that is not how you feel.)

There are stereo types and generalizations in every culture and every country, but this is more about the opportunity to take chance to better ourselves, and definitely not to take advantage of the government. And by doing that, and having that chance, we will never have to depend on the government.

I know there are different groups, but of all the groups you listed, most of us/them are immigrants. I am referring to the US citizens born here...

I agree -

My opinion:

Work hard, earn your bread and sanctify your work.

'let him not eat, him who does not work' - if you are able to work, work (work is also studying).

I am capitalist at heart, therefore, earn your livelihood regardless of your job as long as it is honest...no honest job ever demoralized a human!
