He didn't say that, he said:

Funderburk believed the workers were illegal immigrants because he said they looked Hispanic
Wouldn't he have said he knew more about the companies business practices?

Does anyone know if in fact they were illegal? Or does everyone here just assume he was right in what he did, with no proof of them being illegal?

At this point they only sound guilty of being Hispanic.

You should realize that the massive influx of illegals into the labor force over the last 15 years has brought about the generalizations that you so vehemently oppose. As I posted in a different thread, even the Pew Hispanic Center's numbers show that there are more illegal Hispanics in America than legal ones. When the odds are better than 50/50 that any Hispanic you meet is illegal, it's hard not to frame it in that light.

He should be made into a HERO.

He stood up for what he believes in. We are all getting tired of them taking our jobs.

They protested on MY soil with their flags and should have been rounded up and deported. We could have had allot of the criminals on one swipe.

And; you being 'Hispanic' are quite offended by the above illegals who hurt your reputation (and financial bottom line).

Recently my grand-son-in-law a Legal Mexican (the family having lived here for centuries) was fired from his job because he voiced his opinion about having to work with illegal Mexicans. ( and I don't use that racially, it is a FACT) He made good money, the illegals were being paid much less, but the work was way under par and he told his boss this. Basicly his boss fired him because he said my GSIL was playing the race card when he was also Mexican, It didn't matter he is a citizen.
