This is a portion of an e-mail that was forwarded to us from the building manager in our office...she received it from the property managers of our office building.

Please remember to label any boxes or paper that is to be removed from your suite. Going forward the night crew will not remove any boxes or paper that is not labeled Basura. Each tenant has been provided with the Basura labels from janitorial. If you do not have these labels, please inform the management office so that we can make arrangements to have them provided to you.
(Emphasis added by me.)

Basura? BASURA? Why can't we label it "trash"? Oh, that's right...because the janitors don't speak English. I bet you most of them are illegals.

Outrageous! You know damned well that they are probably illegals because most Hispanic-Americans know how to speak English. Even if they are legal immigrants (which I highly doubt) they can't translate one English word to Spanish in their heads? If I were you I would call ICE.

Have you reported them or are you content to whine about it

What's worse is that many of them have been in this country 20-30 years and have made no effort to learn even a couple words of English.

And it's interesting that food stamps and WIC coupons don't have to be printed in Spanish although I suspect they soon will be.

"Whining"? Is that what you call it when someone has a legitamate complaint? I hear the pro-illegals and illegals whining all the time and their complaints aren't even legitamate.

Not true. Here in Mass they have signs in Spanish all over the WIC office as well as interpreters. WIC brochures are printed in Spanish and Portuguese up here.

I am almost 100% positive they also have SNAP ( food stamps ) brochures in Spanish. They no longer have coupons as far as I know. At least not here in MA. WIC gives you checks and those are in English.

I still think it is BS. We all know why they have them in different languages. I doubt they are catering to legal immigrants...

There should be a mandate to use English everywhere in the U.S except for communications with business overseas, Document translators etc

I will be reporting this to ICE today. They, of course, will do nothing.

I've noticed a lot of employment ads lately for landscaping, janitorial, restoration cleaning, etc... requesting Spanish speaking applicants. Besides reporting to just ICE, you can also report bad employers to this site also:
