        Actually you probably ARE illegal and you don’t know the history of this country so shut up. Also there were No borders or country at that time. The American people are done! No more illegals! If you don’t like the way things are in the country you come from then go back and change it! Don’t come running to the US!

      @Jessica…Saw today a comment by a true full blooded Native American that said he was sick and tired of idiots speaking for the Native American community. He went on to talk about how we are a nation of laws and he’s sick of the illegal invasion from south of the border as well.. BTW There was NO country with borders at that time. Also these thugs pictured probably are illegal so gfys! The American people are DONE, no more illegals! Get it? Got it? Good!!!!

    Here is the deal. Illegal or not these three idiots were drunk and fighting. They turned on the cops and they are a bunch of losers rather they are black, white or Mexican. Who cares what color they are, they are lucky they were not shot. Plus I agree Obama is wrong we need to close our boarders now and get those who mean to do us harm out of this country. If your not legal than you need to leave, I’m sorry American Indian but to the winner comes the spoils even if it was done underhanded and wickedly.
