For those who live in Orlando, what is the government doing to curb illegal immigrants and and crime in the city? Are there any organizations that are working with government agencies to help, or perhaps even hinder, any progress? These two issues seem to be on everyones hot list on this forum (along with schools) and I was just curious as to whats being done?

Are there any laws that put some accountability on people who hire illegals? Have they tried that?

Absolutely nothing is being done, you know why? Kickbacks. Also if we didn't have illegals here most businesses would shut down. We've had this problem forever and it wil never be resolved.

Its a shame...they need to hold landlords and employers accountable. You make anexample of one employer and you'll see how quickly things change. Maybe if the illegals weren't there to take those low paying jobs, the wages would go up, and then the tax pool will increase. I guess that wouldnt work...no state tax, but the fed would benefit.

We have almost the same problem in Allentown...somehow new york was able to force all their garbage into Allentown, PA. Its funny...all the Hispanics (puerto rican, columbian, etc) seem to place the blame on Dominicans. They all hate Dominicans.

I recently got laid off from a business, but you know who still has a job? All the broken english employees. They can work 50-60 hours a week if they want and its okay. The employees who speak perfect english and who can effectively communicate with the customers were all laid off. We had benefits, were on time, worked better than everyone, but the spanish people still work there. They don't have any benefits or anything though. When they leave they find another group, its a revolving door. There's too many shady practices down here. One of my friends there who was checking in cars (car rental) is now transferred to Accounting and still making the same pay even though he has no clue what he's doing. Welcome to Florida! Can't wait to get out of this craphole!

Whoever bases a decission about moving to a certain place on this or other forums must be insane, I beleive that most people that frequent them are
social zeros, always unhappy and you bet not very successful!!!, just think
about the nicest place you can imagine, visit the forum for that city and voila!
there they are, whining, complaining, always fantazaising about great, dirt
cheap places, full of white people that only speak and understand english, ha,ha,ha they are just pathetic.
Reality check:
1- Is it a coincidence that all the states with the fastest growing economies have very high percentage of hispanics and other minorities.
2- Have any of these whiners been to a college town in the past 25 years? they are full of asians, hispanics, middle easterners, europeans. They are the driving force of this country, now if you go to a beauty school or a vocational
school, or either police or fireman academy, then you'll find your "average" american, and of course whining their way through trade school.

This country is now reaping from the coincidence of "fastest growing economie" of cheap labor and slick deals for the powerful. Example: the housing crisis. And college you ask? The average American can not afford college for their children but there are plenty scholarships for the minorities.......and to put the "average" American as whining their way through Vol-Tech, or beauty schools? You are the one needing a reality check. They are whining because their hard earned tax money it going to support "illegals" medical bills, school children, food and housing!! What part of "ILLEGAL" do we not understand?? But going back to the original question of this thread, "What are we doing about illegals? Not much. Being in law enforcement, our Dept. arrest some 40 to 60 hispanics a month for various crimes from burglary, robbery, dui, DWDL,Drugs etc. After they finish their time; they are "released"; and free because INS doesn't have enough people to pick them up. I am remined of one young man, about 23, who was arrested, beligerant, cursing, spitting who shouted, "we are going to take over you country; we already build your houses"......he is again free. His charge, "robbery at gun point".

Hold on here a moment.

Legal immigrants are not the problem------they played by the rules and I can respect that.

Illegals are just that------illegal. They have the same rights as any other lawbreaker.

And; despite what the politicians are saying, the groundswell against illegals and their enablers is growing.

Here in Arizona; our Employer Sanctions Law is starting to bite down------hard.

The illegals; most of whom happen to be 'Hispanic', are fleeing my state.

And; quite a few Americans of 'Hispanic' background ain't cryin' about the mass exodus either

Awfully big meaningless generalizations there, buddy.

Yeah, I'm a real social zero, and unhappy - bah, wah.....As a matter of fact, since MOST of American citizens are against illegal immigration, I guess we're all just a bunch of losers.
