Are you trying to offend all of the residents of these states?

Yet a Cameron Diaz; also 'Hispanic', would not likely be profiled as a 'Hispanic'.

OTOH Catherine Zeta Jones looks much more 'Latina' than Diaz despite the former being English.

Welsh, Welsh, WELSH! ! ! For heavens' sake, don't offend that woman, she's "allegedly" litigious as all get out! Synopsis is too nice a moderator here to incur the wrath of that woman, however inadvertant!

I voted against the forced segregation of the topic of illegal immigration away from pertinent forums. With 300 illegals entering my locale of Los Angeles daily, their bend-over backwards accommodation within same as a so-called sanctuary city, and the neverending upward spiral of costs to pay for illegals dumped on the taxpayers, this has to be as relevant as one can get to understand why L.A. is so expensive a city to live in. L.A. has 20% middle class population, compared with 50% in most all other U.S.cities, and this is a major contributing factor. Yet there persists the gag order on our L.A. thread, and relocators won't have a clue that they'd be moving to an area where little to no English is spoken nor understood in about 40% of it.

Since I live in a moderate income area with immigrants both legal and illegal, my first hand observations could have been of use to that forum. Legal immigrants are decent people: illegals here in L.A. are probably the meanest folks I've ever encountered, whether domestically or abroad. They despise anyone not from their "home country," are misogynistic, undercut wages by being paid under the table, trash any neighborhood, incubate gangs, are deliberately cruel, and go on breaking laws here without cessation because they think they got away with a biggie getting in.

As a Los Angeles resident, I've had my cars totalled by illegals (verified by police) who were driving without licenses, been spat on by them as I walk by (I'm a middle-aged woman), and been overpowered by them at hospitals- my ambulance drivers for one of those wrecks was calling frantically to find an open E.R.- so many have closed from illegals using them for non-emergencies, with concomitant non-payments. Illegals have shot through the fence at my nice dogs, and vandalize property around here endlessly. Illegals badly affect the quality of life for the non-rich in my city. It should be known as a factor for relocators.

OK: how about British? Wales is a part of Great Britain along with Scotland and Northern Ireland Besides: all of 'em are Anglo here----even Alfred Molina!

As for the rest of your post: I agree 100%----------California is way overdue for a housecleanin' of illegals and their damn enablers.
