So I can not mow my own lawn for that reason.

Me too, man. The guy next door to my parents mowed his own lawn up until the week he died...stubborn old coot. He had the best lawn on the block, too. No illegals ever set foot on it either, and they still don't; the man's son now takes care of the lawn for his mama.

Go Cowboys!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now that so many Mexicans have lived in the US working jobs like, construction, shipping & receiving, meat packing, agriculture, landscaping, government work, janitorial, cooking, supervising, managing, owning businesses, HR, etc. they need to take these skills back to Mexico and make their country like this one.

If you can afford an illegal alien, you can afford a high school kid.

Yes, I'm serious. Hire a high school kid, finance a riding mower, hell get your boyfriend to do it...but by hiring an illegal to me you're aiding and abetting a criminal, which makes you no better than they are.

Lots of people far less mobile than you are manage to cut their own grass.

Are you saying Mexicans in general or illegal immigrants? Thats like saying "White people go back to Europe and use your skills there".

I would fire him. Illegal is illegal. Get a legal American or resident to mow your lawn or do it yourself. By supporting an illegal you're part of the problem IMHO.
