That is not racism that is stereotyping. I don't see any oppression, prejudice, violence, dislike or discrimination in that statement.

I personally don't like the word "illegals".
Well they are here illegally. I would not use the term immigrant either because that implies they are here legally. People need to get over trying to sugar coat things. They are Illegal Aliens plain and simple.
