White guy? I smell some racism here.
If they were born outside of the USA in 20th and 21st century and came here illegally they are illegals.

I am racist toward white people? Well, as it turns out, Latin Americans come in all colors, I happen to be blue eyed and white (although I do have 15% Amerindian DNA and 2% Sub-Saharan DNA). I guess I am racist toward myself...

History lesson: As a result of the war with Mexico (1846-1848) which Mexico lost, the U.S. took from Mexico land that is now the states of Utah, California, and Nevada, as well as part of Wyoming, New Mexico, Colorado, and Arizona. There were Mexicans living on this land, when the land was taken and stayed there. Their descendants are part of the Mexican-Americans. They never immigrated to the U.S. My point is imagine an American, telling them to get out of my country, when they have been in the land of their ancestors before it became American land. See why this might especially offensive?

I don't know about your DNA but your comment is racists.

It happens in many parts of the world. During wars borders change.

It WAS their country. It is NOT any more.
You are like that evil guy Putin. He says to Ukrainians that before Ukraine was part of Russia forget about your independence now.

Alla is, sadly, not a troll. She's just a Republican.

RE: Get out of my country
I wonder if this guy realizes that his candidate of choice is the son and grandson of immigrants to the United States. Two of his three wives were also immigrants.

Does he think Trump would tell his mother and wife to get out of his country?

RE: Get out of my country
That's some seriously racist shit.

Step 1) Take half the Mexican Empire from Mexico, including millions of Mexican citizens who live there, and call it "the American Southwest".

Step 2) Tell all the former Mexican citizens they are US citizens now, like it or not.

Step 3) Wait 150+ years until most people forget Step 1, and pretend USA was always like it is today.

Step 4) Tell the descendants of the people above that they need to "go back to their country".

Step 5) Call anyone who finds Step 4 offensive "racist", to win the Irony Award™ for 2015.

RE: Get out of my country
Oh, thanks for The Award Smile
I give to all of you one, too.

This country is in a huge debt. You don't give a fig about this.
You can not be in huge debt and continue to borrow more money to help all poor in the world.
It is irresponsible, it is foolish.
You are foolish, irresponsible people.
I give you "Foolish People Award"
