Translation: Hello, I am from Guatemala. I am glad that you have won. Btw-- Guatemala should be capitalized. There should be a period after it to separate the two sentences. And, it's "hayas" not "ayas." In the future, please post in English. It is extremely rude to post in a foreign language when the article is in English. OAS, Miss Mexico is very deserving of the Miss Universe title.

Miss Philippines has done nothing "major" wrong in her life? How quickly she forgot about lying on her pageant application. She is not native-born, as she originally claimed. She was an out-of-wedlock baby, born in the Middle East to a filipina foriegn-worker maid and an Indian businessman. Mabuyah!

Examina las estadísticas por favor. Cada dia hay menos razones del porque escribir el Ingles. In regard to illegal immigration - it's an ages-old issue and maybe one without a solution. Native Americans used to call it "White Man."

If it were not for the "White Man", you would be living in filth with your peon mexican heritage, and loving it in the third world.

Go Mexico!(go back to mexico if it is so great)

Most of you are WRONG WRONG WRONG ! She has nothing to do with the Drug cartels and Illegal Immigration. She has dreamed of this opportunity for most of her life. She educated, well mannered ! Let her enjoy it. She's done nothing to you except the fact that she beat Miss USA in the pageant.
And yes, I am totolly against illegal immigration. Put the military on the bodder.
Leave this poor girl alone.

Stay at home mom you are. Very stupid about the real world.She and 99.99999999999% of the population in Mexico have nothing to do with the drugs or the money. I know MOM, I live here. And yes, I'm a white man born in the U S.
It is touching that you want her to be safe. But is it sincere?
While you sit on your butt as being a stay at home mom, she's Miss Universe. She'll travel the world, helping people.
Do something more constructive with your life instead of picking on a young person who chose to do something with there life instead of being a Stay at Home Mom. You do not say if you are married or live off the people of the U S. on welfare.

Congratulations, Jimena. You really showed those stuck-up Venezuelans how to be ... prettier? OK, whatever.

So it is unclear if Miss USA is the first Muslim, Arab-American, whatever to win the title. So what?! Unless you are a AOD member of the MSM industrial complex it doesn't really matter. This type of categorization does nothing to unite us as a nation, it only divides us into ever smaller tribal units.
Also, many Lebanese are Christians. To say she is Muslim is assuming things. I don't think her religion was mentioned anywhere in the story.

Miss Philippines, you go, girl. If somebody put such an asinine question to me, my answer would have been the same. Any mistakes I made or regrets I have are between me and my conscience, not for a worldwide voyeuristic audience.
The fact that her mother, like so many of her compatriots, worked abroad is probably just an unwelcome reminder that so many Philippinos have to leave the country to find a job. That she was born abroad and that her father is Indian is nothing she had any say in. So FTR and the nay-sayers, she has nothing to apologize for (other than not winning, maybe).
