  •  I'm not by any stretch defending this statement.. (0+ / 0-)

    ...because ANYONE would be offended no matter which country.

    (I suggest Lindsey take a look at some of the "hellholes" in his OWN country.)

    The truth is there ARE "hellholes" from which people continue to flee for whatever reason. What the people in the 'states downt grok is tha MEXICO has a huge "immigration problem." From Honduras and Salvador andwhere and whenever the ocassionalviolence flairs up.

    Costa Rica hates the Nicas. Colombians hate the Venezuelans and Bolivians....

    sigh....

      Most North Americans don't really that a lot of Nicaraguans and Guatemalans go to Costa Rica and Mexico to get better jobs.

      And CanisMaximus was right about Costa Rica and "Nicas". I've heard of cases where Nicas have been beaten up at job sites in CR because the Costa Rican ("Ticas") don't like Nicas coming in and taking their jobs.
