Love the scare tactics....truth is if you anti-illegals met an actual illegal immigrant you'd do zero. All you folks do is whine on message boards and your message isn't even addressed in the presidential debates. Nobody has or cares about anyone's back.

God gives us the free will to either obey his commandments or not. And we had better be prepared to pay the consquences if we don't.

No, you haven't. There are other factors that were mentioned by most that would indicate someone is here illegally. It was never claimed that language alone was the deciding factor just that it raises the radar.

Oh, so you have a crystal ball that tells you what we would and wouldn't do? "Ass"uming is never a good thing. Our message isn't being addressed at the presidential debates? Are you kidding me? Guess you haven't watched any of the Republican ones then. Speaking of whining that is all I read on every lefty, ethnocentric website. They can't even stand a difference of opinion and they ban you.

Here when we see people talking in Spanish; especially if they look like a maid, construction worker or gardener, we see them as being probably here illegally since so many Spanish speakers ARE here against the law. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck. Sheesh.

OK what jobs do LEGAL Spanish speaking people hold?

You would have to discern between the 2, to claim a probability.

Speaking for myself there would be more than language usage and employment for me to be convinced that someone is here illegally. However, as the red flags go up with each factor so does the probability.
