Default ~~~ a posiitive story about immigrants~~~~

So often we read such negative stories about Mexican immigrants , their propensity for crime and indolence. I just thought that I would share this :
My daughter Kelsey who has had a brain tumor constantly loses things. A few months ago, she accidentally threw her cell-phone in the garbage at the mall. One of the workers there (a sweet Mexican woman) searched through the garbage for it , but was unable to locate it. We went home without the cell phone.
Later that night, I received a phone call from the worker. A group of the workers had gone to the OUTSIDE garbage and searched all the bags until one of them found the phone, then this lovely woman called all of the phone numbers on it until she located me.

These are people who literally have nothing and yet they took their time to help a little girl and a mom that they did not even know. I was so touched that I cried . That is an example of the humble and gentle character of these lovely people .

Thank you for sharing a positive post, and I'm glad it worked out for you and your daughter

And you know this woman was Mexican HOW? Did she tell you, or did you assume it because she spoke only Spanish, or because of the color of her skin?

Are you guilty of racial profiling?

Her story has nothing to do with IMMIGRATION either as a social or political issue, which is obvious to anyone who understands the CONTEXT of this board.

Simply being here is not a felony; that stated, factoring in working here illegally, etc. that is when the big crimes start.

Bring in illegals to make the crime rate go down? ...Well, how is it that "bringing in illegals" has only increased our prison and gang population?

The fact that anti-enforcement people never present a shred of logical or factual information that shows how illegal immigration benefits average Americans only reinforces my conviction that there are no benefits to illegal immigration....So, I guess isolated anecdotes is the best they can do.

What city-data guidelines are you looking at? Like i said before, this is the immigration forum not an only illegal immigration forum. I can post positive encounters and stories about immigrants if i want. Your problem is you think this forum is only dedicated to illegal immigration, but it is not.

Only if she had "divined" the robber's national identity as she seems to have done with her touchy feely story....

I'm surprised that you of all people are not all over the OP demanding to know how she determined that this person was a Mexican immigrant.

Oh wait, that's right. You only protest if the "immigrant" is shown in a none too flattering light.
