Should we condone the rethoric language of the Anti Immigrants?
There has been a dramatic altering in the place of immigration in public opinion over the last 12 months specially Nativists, Extremists and Anti Immigrants. Immigration is now only considered the most important issue facing America by less than 1% of the American public compared to 12% last year. And Subfederal jurisdictions shoot themselves in the foot with anti-immigrant measures than to visit them on the rest of us and I want to pointed out the Top Most Offensive Quotes from Anti-Immigrant Leaders. Hate crimes against Hispanics have increased, according to the FBI. The agency reports that 820 Hispanics in the United States were victimized because of their ethnicity in 2006, up from about 600 in 2004.
I want to remind people of faith that all people are created in the image of God. In our various faith traditions, it is unacceptable to use - or let others use -- dehumanizing language in describing fellow human beings. It's totally unaceptable in any language. We need to recognize the full dignity and humanity in all people. At the same time McCain seems to have wound up with the worst of both worlds: He appears to be getting no credit from Latino voters for his past support for immigration reform, while carrying the baggage of other Republicans' hostility to illegal immigration.

6.) "The brown toxic cloud strangling Los Angeles never lifts and grows thicker with every immigrant added. One can't help appreciate the streets of Paris will soon become the streets of LA. However, Paris' streets erupted while LA's shall sink into a Third World quagmire much like Bombay or Calcutta, India. When you import that much crime, illiteracy, multiple languages and disease-Americans pick up stakes and move away."
Frosty Wooldridge, anti-immigrant author and activist. Summarizing an address by a KABC-AM talk radio host to the Federation for American Immigration Reform director's meeting, Fall 2005.

10.) "Our enemies are bloodied and beaten. We cannot relent. Our boot is on their throat and we must have the willingness to crush their ‘throat' so that we can put our enemy down for good. The sovereignty of our nation and the future of our culture and civilization is at stake. The United States is a beacon of salvation unto the rest of the world.

13.-The "Oregon Minuteman" Rick Hickey and he is actually the vice president of Oregonians for Immigration Reform and the vice-chair of the Marion County Republican Party.
