Um, when I was in Germany in the 90s, the Germans seemed pretty pissed off about the 'illegals' coming up from father east and south.

Sounds like NewportBeachGuy needs to start talking to some British people and see if he thinks it's only California's problem. Newport, the world DOES NOT revolve around California ok?

I have never seen this sort of talk or debate about illegal immigrant anywhere in the world except for here in California.

I work all over the world in the oil and gas drilling/exploration industry. We work with people from all over the world but i am a bit uneasy about this topic which most people I am sure will find it borderline with racism.

I consider myself non racist and couldn't careless if people don't speak English fluently but at least they try.

Do white people paint all immigrants with the same brush called "Illegal Immigrants"?

I am sure some racist troll will attack me here but i am just asking why are we even talking about Illegal Immigrants? At least they are willing to do the jobs most Americans refused to do.
I don't assume or presume anything. It takes alittle more than not speaking english to convince me whether or not they're illegal. I had a business in SoCal and when I asked for a green card 99% of them weren't afraid, in fact most of them were proud to admitt that they were illegals.

Let me ask you this:
Do you always presume that every job an illegal does is a job that American Citizens refuse to do? WAKE UP MAN!!!!

How would you feel if foreigners come here and do not speak English at all? Anyway, at least the foreigners attempt to learn or speak our language.

Foreigners come to our country with knowledge to share. It's like saying WE DO NOT WANT FOREIGN INVESTMENTS in our country.

Foreigners are like Foreign Investments, without it we will never learn new technology. Let's not make the same mistakes our parents did, look at middle east. The war stems from their parents hating each other. They did not accept foreign investment and that's why they are in the world of ****.

Give them some slack they are human beings and most of them suffered from war and evil dictatorships.

I am really embarrassed with the way we are in California, hating people because of their ethnicity. It's really hard to explain to people i met from all over the world why we hate them because i dont anyone.

Maybe we would be better off making sure we are 200% healthy in our mind body and soul, ensuring we bring home enough money to enjoy life in a challenging world. Having enough good friends to share life with as we grow mature. Don't you guys/gals think so? Lets forget about illegal immigrants and let's start to worry about our life.

By the way immigrants are excellent in the service industry and we have so much to learn from everyone. Everyone has something good to offer, real wealthy rich people are never racist.
You have no clue on the true reality of what this is all about. Maybe it's best that you stay bottled up in your own little world. But when you decide to discuss something, get the facts from both sides first, instead of picking up propoganda from one side and slinging it at the other.

If you want to stop making yourself sound like a fool. you need to become the "silent minority".

This is no attack, it's just friendly advice.

At first I thought this will be a legitimate thread touching an important issue, but after more posts from the op it seems like an attempt at trolling. This is going nowhere constructive.
