I am not against basic caring even of illegal immigrants but you take it too far. Your irrationality doesn't help your cause.
Furthermore, if you look at history over the past 5,000 years and not just the last 300 years you would know that conquest and slavery is not limited to any particular group.
I have a feeling you've probably never been out of the country...
I'm not saying that the Mexican government does any different, but I am here in the US and can try and change the way we treat human beings here. And it's short-sighted to say that I haven't looked at the entire span of humanity. I was simply stating that African Americans are not immigrants.
By the way, I have left the country---but that's not the point.
