  1. I can’t believe you people. Pete Wilson was a great mayor and an excellent governor. If you look at the two groups complaining, “Gays and Lesbians”, and the “illegal immigrants and their supporters”, you would say maybe Pete Wilson did something right for San Diego and the state of California.I suppose they would rather have a statue of the Mexican president?

    I was a citizen of California when Wilson was governor and he was a thoroughgoing reactionary swine. Wilson was a union buster, an avid supporter of antigay christian bigots and a racist opponent of the human and constitutional rights of immigrants workers. As for the statue question, Benito Pablo Juárez García, a Zapoteca native of Mexico who served five terms as President of Mexico and is noted for resisting the French occupation, overthrowing the Empire, and restoring the Republic, and for his efforts to modernize Mexico is Mexico’s greatest and most beloved leader. He’s in a class with his contemporary, Abe Lincoln. He is the only full-blooded indigenous native to be President and it would be an honor to have his statue grace any American city. As for this Jeremy creature, like Wilson, he’s an anti immigrant and antigay bigot. Ignore him.

  3. Why is it people always confuse immigrants with illegal immigrants? Nice spin eh? Pete Wilso was opposed to illegal immigrants only!! Get the vasoline out of your ears! There is a difference… Anybody, and I mean anybody who breaks the law should be punished. That includes ILLEGAL immigrants. Of course, intolerant people cannot make that distinction.Bill, quit spinning… If they were legal immigrants, pete wilson would of had no problem. But they were Illegal. You do know the difference right?

  4. Oh one more thing Bill, if you were a citizen of California, or even took an American Law Class, you would know that constitutional rights are only extended to Americans…. Not ILLEGALS… There’s that word again… ILLEGAL ILLEGAL ILLEGAL — Get a dictionary and look up the word!

    When we win, Jeremy, the only people that will be illegal are bigots. Can you spell ‘reeducation camp’?

    Jeremy – can you clarify who the ‘you people’ that you refer to are, please?
