Fellow Americans, does this scenario sound familiar to your home state? I live on the northern periphery of Mexifornia in the state of Oregon. What happens in California (millions of illegals) trickles north up here. We here have seen in the last ten years an exploding Hispanic population. We have whole areas throughout Oregon that have been turned into Tijiuana. We now have lots of our streets filled with gun and knife carrying gangbangers. Gang fights, shootings, and stabbings happen more and moe all of the time. The bangers all claim some affiliation with gangs out of California. The tagging is everywhere: Surreno vs. Norteno, 18th street vs 11th street, on and on it goes. These little savages stab and kill each other with impunity over nothing at all. It's absolutely stupid and senseless stuff. This is a new phenomenon up here in the Pacific Northwest, but it is getting worse all of the time. I can only imagine how long the once great State of California has been dealing with this crap. What's up with your home state?

That's why I plan on moving, most likely to Montana or Wyoming, to get as far away from this crap as possible.

Yeah, and in a few years they'll invade that place too. There is no area of the U.S. you can hide in from this, unless you're very wealthy and you can afford to live in a gated community with private security.

i can't speak for the whole state but illegals are moving into Northern VA like locusts. I'm seeing more and more graffiti around my neighborhood, the cops are here more often, and more gangs are popping up (the South Side Locos to go with MS-13), and all this happened after where i live in Alexandria declared itself a sanctuary city.

In Virginia Beach, (which is sanctuary city) illegals are popping up there too. This is a PM i got from a VA Beach resident on how bad it is getting.

Well, when I was a manager at Wal-mart, the place was filled with illegals paying for $200+ in food with cash. Not to mention, when the system had us check the IDs of everyone - sooo said "no tengo" meaning "don't have"


The worst place to see illegals would have to have been Towne Center. I don't know for sure how many were illegals, though.
Anywhere illegals live, i'd suggest buying a gun to protect youself b/c it will only get worse.

Yes, there really is nowhere to go to get away from them. With as many as there are in Colorado, don't think they haven't gone into Wyoming and Montana. I've even heard Idaho is starting to have problems.

Jackson Hole is a sanctuary city. However, the rest of Wyoming is not yet under attack. This morning it is 17 degrees with a wind chill factor of about zero, with more snow expected later today. If you live out here on the plains, it is cold, it is windy, driving can be quite treacherous with blizzards, white-outs, and road closures, and the Wal-Marts are few and far between.

Not exactly for the faint of heart. It takes a certain sort of person to live here, and frankly, the work for illegals is simply not here. Ranches are still family run and the fast food places hire teenagers and college students.

Lo siento 'bout their old bad luck.

We won't even be able to move to Canada eventually - they'll have illegal problems!!

Well, my only comfort is that I am not a young person - I would not like to see what this world and this country become in 30 years. I'll happily be gone, I imagine.

Listen to our presidential candidates. Hilary said last night "this round them up and deport talk" is inhumane! She and Obama both are for some form of amnesty. (after they pay a fine, like that would happen!)

Yep...pay a fine and in Hillary's case pay back taxes. You can't even figure out now from payroll records HOW MANY illegals some of these construction companies have. My wife's a bookkeeper and was commenting last night how she sees payrolls with 3 or 4 names using the same SSN or the same name multiple times with a different SSN for some construction companies. It's almost impossible to figure out who's really gotten paid what!! So how can you ever figure out how much they owe in back taxes?!!!?

Yep, I remember in the McCain-Kennedy immigration bill they were discussing a payment plan for the fine. I envisioned an ad saying this...

"American citizenship is on sale now for $2999.99. We offer 0% financing for 60 months. No credit check! Get it while it lasts!"
