Fernando, I don’t see any reference to “illegal” migration in that cartoon, just migration.

I’ve been a regular reader of this website, and I really appreciate the intelligent insights, but when I found this cartoon displayed, it me made think about the stereotypes that most “Americans” have. I’m a American citizen that was born in Peru, as a matter of fact all my family is American, not exactly North American but we all were born in this continent and that make us more Americans than the Europeans that took over this continent centuries ago.
Generalize the illegal problem doesn’t help to resolve it, and I think it’s pretty offensive just because white Americans think this is their continent or country, but if we recap history it’d tell us that long, way long before white Europeans, there were Indians, Aztecas and Incas running this place, white Europeans came here, almost genocide my people, stole the resources, and repressed us. And you are trying to call us illegal in our own continent? Are you kidding me?

You better get your facts right before you put a cartoon so stupid.
