Spanish is not the foreign language that I studied and readily can understand: I chose another. What did you mean to convey with your comment? And my observation indeed was based upon espying homeless beggars that yell in Spanish here in Los Angeles.

Merely because YOU have not seen "one", does not mean that others have not!

As another said PL - get over yourself!

That's the truth. One may be here on a work visa and speak a little English, then bring in many others to live in a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment. My husband has to paint those apartments after they're thrown out--what a mess. If one is homeless, they'll just put him in the apartment with them. The guy with the work visa just makes money off them.

Until we crack down on the employers doing the exploiting, this will continue to be a problem and we'll have to hear from illegals who are demanding free medical care and education at our expense, without paying dime one in taxes, who walk into a hospital, get treatment and just walk right out knowing they don't have to pay, and then tell us we better get right.

Positive rep to you. I don't have a problem with race. I have a problem with theft.

Pro-illegals throw around the term "racist" in place of "anti illegal immigration" or "realist". Also most on here against illegal immigration are quite knowledgable and site documented facts on the situation, and their views are anything but "ignorant". The only people I view as ignorant are those who think "They're nice people, and they work hard, so why is it a problem?". Anyone educated with the facts and figures looks at the entire situation.

Our Employer Sanctions Law here in Arizona is doing just that--------running those losers off

You'll have to forgive PL, he tries to defend those of his own race to be "not as bad" as other races. He has made it clear on this thread that the Mexican homeless aren't as bad as the white or black homeless, and on another thread he's arguing that MEChA and Chicano nationalists aren't as bad as the KKK, even though BOTH are groups filled with ignorance and seek the betterment and supremacy of their own race and to hell with every other race. Seems like a tad bit of hypocricy to me.

Default I'll tell you what they look like.

They ARE all over the place if you live in Los Angeles they are easy to pick out.

Here's what I have observed...

1. They look like little brown indians.
2. They stand on corners, freeway underpass intersections, or around parking lots with a (lumberyard, hardware store, Home Depot, or U-Haul nearby)
3. They have a backpack.
4. They are walking everywhere or ride bicycles.
5. They don't speak english.

That is straight out of the "How to spot an Illegal Alien Handbook" burned into the mind of anyone who lives in a city with an overwhelming population of them.

Oh, and "nobody walks in L.A." so they're really really easy to spot.

Nothing at all racist about my post or derogatory, I'm only stating the simple facts.
