that is such BS. Indians come here legally and the only thing they do that pisses me off is take jobs from the americans .. BUT they take those jobs legally.

Mexicans come under the cover of night walking through our desert and swimming across the Rio Grande pay no taxes, steal identities, under cut our jobs that americans need to survivor and mooch off our welfare system

Indians are welcome. ILLEGAL mexicans are not
NO, you are most certainly WRONG!!!! He is right when he says that East Indians are the fastest rising population of illegals these days.

Also, we, as Americans, son't want the East Indians either.

Talk to the people in Sacramento California

all races are not welcomed. has nothing to do w/race

Russians are a HUGE factor in Sacramento and they are terrible there. gangs, violence, disrespect. then on top of it all they get the easy business loans when other people cannot get it

People of Sacramento are frustrated with it

Some illegal immigrants I can tolerate over others. Such as here in the Bronx, in one of the neighborhoods called Woodlawn, a number of illegal Irish folks reside. I have no problem with them, as they all generally stick to work in that area and actually speak in English. Illegal Mexicans, on the other hand, some tend to speak no English at all even after years of being in America. They don't want to learn the language, and if you're not going to learn English, it's your fault. The last thing I want is for Americans to have to learn Spanish to interact with some of these (doctors are already going to have to if they work in Texas and California) illegals, when it should be Hispanics learning English. In America, WE SPEAK ENGLISH.

My parents were immigrants from Lebanon, but they made sure I spoke English and nothing but English to them until I mastered the language down, then they started speaking to me in their native language. That's the way all immigrants should work. Legal and illegal.

Illegal immigrants from India are fastest growing | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle (broken link)

My father works as a comp engineer for a for a HUGE IT company which hires many Indians. However most have no clue what they are doing and are paid !@#$. So if by high tech jobs you mean low paying, mundane, code-monkey jobs then yes they are taking them.

What the dilly are you refering to? The article is about people who enter the U.S. with the correct paperwork, then become illegal by overstaying their visa.

The H-1B system needs to be abolished anyway; I have a comp sci degree though I'm now in real estate since corporate America and the U.S. goverment now regard my life as excess baggage in the global economy. What a waste of my life...
