Are you sure they are going back there?

Right after the law was passed, SEVERAL cars with Alabama license plates have shown up here, in my apartment complex....The people do not speak English (they are Brazilians...) and some of them happen to live at the leasing office and are working in the building. Freaking amazing.

I have already called ICE but doubt anything will happen because it is MASSACHUSETTS after all.

This is a tired story. You have the most prosperous nation in the history of world bordered with one of the poorest and most corrupt. Couple that with little, if any border control and enforcement and wallah - illegals running rampant through our country. This is no longer a southwestern state issue, it's now become a national epidemic. Democrats want them in for current and future votes and Republicans want them in for the cheap slave labor. Basically, there's no political will to close the border. Giving Barack Hussein Obama any credit for making our border safer is laughable. The truth is illegals do take jobs from Americans. Americans are the hardest working people on this planet; however, they will not work for slave wages like the illegals. Keep in mind that illegals also drain the general fund by receiving more in government aid and supplements than they give back. Remember, illegals only pay sales tax when and if they make goods/services purchases. Until there is a political will for action, I'm afraid things are only going to continue to get worse.

Not to mention all the remittances sent back to their homelands that aren't spend in our economy.
