I agree with your post 100%,and admire your stand on it!
Someone HAS to do the right thing, without excuses and without rose colored views.
I would have done the same thing.....fired them on the spot, and got BBB and INS/ ICE involved!
Wish we would have more people like you, supporting US products, quality and work labor.

How did you figure out that they were ALL (except for the foreman) "illegals?" Did you ask them to show their documentation and they were unable to do so, or was it simply because they looked hispanic and spoke Spanish? Just curious...

My wife is a Mexican, and she spoke with them. All of them were illegals from deep Mexico near Mexico City. They spoke with the dialect of the area, and so my wife started speaking with them and asked them some questions (In Spanish). Being a Mexican herself, they trusted her enough to tell her they were all illegals. How is that for proof? Besides that, I have lived around illegals long enough to spot them a block away.

That certainly make sense then if they told you that they were illegal immigrants, but I don't think there is such a thing as "spotting an illegal a block away." When people start profiling others based on their race and ethnicity there is nothing good that can come out of that.

This story makes about as much sense as all the others this person has told about supposedly confronting illegal aliens. I don't believe that it actually happened.

Believe what you wish, it's true. Most people have blinders on these days and I don't expect anyone except those whose eyes are opened to believe what I write.

I love just standing around with my husband and/or friends and acting like I don't understand Spanish. One gets to hear many things that most pro-illegal types would rather we not hear. Don't get me wrong because this country has some very patriotic and wonderful American citizens of Mexican descent but these last 20 years have basically brought nothing but revolutionists to us and they totally believe in what they do, and that would be to overtake the country one birth at a time. I have heard some mighty nasty things said and most here would be totally surprised.

MOHIllbillyWoman: While I don't agree with some of your positions, or the tactics for resolution you suggest, I do believe what you say here. Liberals are far too willing to assume that most illegal immigrants are honest and hard-working people who love the U.S. desperately want to integrate into the culture. This is simply not the case. Disclaimer: I am a liberal.
