I thought you weren't ever going to talk to me again, isn't that sweet you've had a change of heart. You found your Southern hospitality, see your not so much of a tough cowgirl as I thought you were.

This quote was actually from the Big D and not raelynn.

By going to places that employ illegals such as mcdonalds, mexican resturants, grocery stores, malls,etc. by you spending your money there you are providing their paycheck. I am sorry about what happened to your husband and I'm gald the man was caught. Please accept my apology because to begin with all i wanted was to get my feelings off my chest. These things are not to attack other people or shouldn't be atleast they are for people to share their opinions even if its not the same as the other persons. It's obvious that i am pro-illegal and you are anti-illegal but in some ways i do agree with you. So once again I am sorry for getting out of hand in the matter.

raelynn:
i appreciate your apology, and would like to say, that i do respect your opinion and your right to voice them.that's what so many americans have died to give you.
i would alos like to add one thing, in the big scheme of things , the people (big business and government) who employ illegals or do nothing to enforce our immigration laws are the real culprits.
small people who employ them are just a smaller part of the problem, but still, they are part of the problem.
victims of violent crimes committed by some of these illegals are getting angry that justice isnt being served.
america is a good country, and i love her, but when you are kicked in the teeth by your own government, and the people who are elected to protect our constitution and our lives and are failing to fullfill their oathes, and people who are pro illegal try to make us feel as if we have no right to feel the way we do.... i do get more than a little defensive.
maybe instead of having so much sympathy for people who refuse to respect or follow our laws in the first place, and then some who committ violent or non violent crimes after coming here illegal , you should stop and think of your fellow americans who are the victims of these people.
anyway....peace be with you.

No one wants forty hours of week of labor and $6-10 depending on your state, except for illegal immigrants. You can't prove me otherwise.
i work for 7.50 an hour doing convienence store work....isnt this proof enough?
my son works in a sheetmetal warehouse for 8 bucks and hour...my sister works at a convienince store for 8 bucks an hour...i have worked as a maid in a htel for 6.50 an hour, a home healthcare companion for 7 an hour and in a hobby store for 7 bucks an hour.......what kind of proof do you really need?
do you really beleive that americans are so full of themselves that they refuse to work under 10 dollars an hour or work in hard construction jobs etc...........get real...alot of americans are doing these jobs and by people employing illegals for less money , the jobs you speak of arent always available for the american at all...

I have been at the same job for over 7 years and I STILL don't make 10 bucks an hour, and I make more than my husband does! So it's pretty hard to convince me that American's won't work for less than 10 bucks an hour.

You should go work at in-and-out over here in the Bay. You make $9.25 an hour with benefits, 401k, health insurance and free food.
