The bulk of the "they" this thread keeps talking about, are innocent people (depending on how seriously you view their transgressions or their parents' transgressions in crossing the border). I would say both sides need to take it up with the State, but the State isn't likely to listen.
It's an assumption, and I believe it's a misplaced one. There seems to be an overpowering desire to paint illegals as a bunch of morons, yet those same people accuse these "ignorant savages" of gaming the system and evading capture. You don't do that by mixing in with large crowds of protestors where arrests may happen (whether through your fault or not) and your life may be disrupted at the very least.
That said, there's a large contingent of people who feel like they're getting screwed in this country. A subset of that is always going to include "minority youth," who tend to show up at the violent sort of protests in higher proportions.
I think it's a matter of the forums mixing up "illegal immigrants" and "Hispanics" again, something they have in common with far too many people.
