If anyone's ever curious as to why the city did this, all you have to do is drive up Josey Lane from 635 northward. Beat-up pickup trucks and signs in Spanish everywhere. Basically the illegals have turned what was once a neat, prim, blue-collar suburb into something you used to only see in border towns.
Farmers Branch used to be a nice suburban city, shame to hear about this.

There are still some nice neighborhoods but take a spin up Josey Lane sometime. Yikes.

Never mind getting them to vote for someone. I'm looking for tips on how we can get them to leave. Will this help?

My friend is a medical director of a facility that they brought 600 of them. 87 of them tested positive for TB.

AND she said the media has been instructed to call them "children" when the numbers are 84% are 15-19 males that have facial hair and gang tattoos on many of them.

Our country is intentionally being over-run and we, once again are picking up the tab.

Just remember this when you vote in 2014.

They actually have toilets and sewer systems in urban Central America, but it can't handle toilet paper, which clogs it all up. So they put their used paper or rags into a special waste container with lid.

When they get here in the US, they don't know what to do with their used paper, so they throw it into a regular trash container or even on the floor if that's the only option. It should only take a moment to tell them they can put it into the toilet and flush it all down.

BTW, I did report the grease dumped in the street drain from the Naked Chorizo monstrosity to the police department earlier in the week. I haven't seen or smelled the truck since.
Oh No! I'm surprised Mamacita swatted them. Good that she did. That's great news about the grease and the drain. That's ridiculous that someone would have to be told not to do that.

I am sure you are referring to tourists from Central America who have the luxury of toilets in their home country.

Apparently, from reading the articles, the refugees at the border are not familiar with toilets. Nothing was written about used tissue or rags on the floor after using the facilities. No sirree, it was human waste.

Are the gangs and drug cartels taking toilets away from them, now, or something?

They mostly live in cities, Annie, which have sewage systems - the cities would quickly become uninhabitable if toilets weren't used. I've seen temp work agencies, free meal places etc, which have signs up in Spanish telling them to put the tissue into the toilet and not into the wastepaper basket.

It may be different for campesinos living in rural agricultural regions.

Books on relocating to Mexico also mention this.
