Look here, dip: Something the … 500 Mexicans residing in the territories requested, to be part of the USA. Read your history before engaging your fingers. “To the people who have no compassion for the Mexican workers” and “Another racist claims …” Racist? We like American workers of all races. We dislike Illegal aliens lawbreakers of all races. …Vail, Colorado
