Why do ILLEGALS have to be called WETBACKS?
Where to start...Ok, so i'm of Mexican desent, but was born in the USA.

Just wondering why it is that everytime someone says "illegal aliens" most people automatically assume that someone is speaking about Mexicans?

I have 4 people in my family who work for Customs/Border Patrol. One who I am especially close to, constantly tells me of stories of Africans, Israelis, Haitians, etc. crossing our borders on a daily basis.

You guys need to wake up and see that it's not only Mexicans crossing our US borders, it's people of all nationalities!

So sick of hearing the word WETBACK!

And for those of you that don't know your history, hear this: Texas was once a part of Mexico, therefore when TX was won back by the US, there were many Mexicans who were already here, and who have the right to be!

THANK YOU!!

Re: Why do ILLEGALS have to be called WETBACKS?
Its just a word, chill out.
And if there is no harmful meaning behind the word, then no harm is done. I grew up in a racist family and I guess I too am as a result, but when I joke about some guy slopping down a watermelon in his escalade on dubs and laugh, who cares? I'm sure if that person had half a chance he would make fun of my hillbilly accent and ask wtf "taters" and "backerpatch" is.

You have to have a thick skin in this world, I really wish people would figure that out and not freak out over everything just too make a scene.

I thought it sounded less offensive than Illegal Alien myself.
If there were ATM machines in the 50's, they'd read....

Re: Why do ILLEGALS have to be called WETBACKS?
I didn't know that they called them that.
I know there are other people, who are of different country origins that are illegals, but I think a lot of people, do think Mexicans are the only illegals.

It is good to bring that up, some need to know that.

No doubt, I hear what you are saying. BUT, it's wrong to assume that all people who cross our MEXICAN/CANADIAN borders are only Mexicans. peace

Re: Why do ILLEGALS have to be called WETBACKS?
Battle of San Jacinto...mexican forces were pushed back into the San Jacinto river where they drowned or surrendered. They had their backs to the river, thus the term wet back.

Few seem to know that many of the soldiers who fought and died as Texans were of Mexican descent. Many native Texans with hispanic surnames have lived in Texas, since it was Texas, and fought for its independence. These native Texans often do not speak spanish, speak a southern Dialect of English, and own land.


Recent immigrants however share none of the qualities, they do not speak English, do not own land, and likely do not have ancestors who fought for Texas, or the United States for that matter, and could give a shit about what happens to America. They're here for only one reason.
