And; judging by your location, you have people who have 'got your back'---------meaning you are not alone

Anymore; when illegal Latinos are concerned, oftentimes the Anglo Whites and the Black folks will drop their quarrels and join forces for mutual protection.

In what line of work do you endeavor, backfist?

I just left Covington, Ga. last fall because my landscaping business could no longer compete with companies who didn't see the wrong in hiring illegal labor to fatten their bottom line. I know dozens of people in Newton County alone that lost jobs due to criminal employers and illegal alien labor.

Latino advocates like the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fundís Elise Shore are concerned that making a direct link between immigrants and black unemployment is stoking the fire of racial divide.
We as American citizens should be able to set limits and healthy boundaries from the millions of illegal Mexican immigrants who come to our country without permission. But due to political correctness and pressure from ethnocentric groups like MALDEF we are constantly being violated.
