4 of the 20 million illegals. Generalization. Was he going to shoot them? It's not they, it's a couple.

[quote=;238466]I remember tons of my dad's friends doing construction and making excellent money.

Well, either they were in the elite category that composes of architects, general contractor, and developer...or they were making the big 12 bucks an hour everyone has been raving about

You can't deny the fact that most low level workers are latino and they need to be respected legal or illegal for their contributions...I'm going to let this go, I don't want to start WWIII.

Why should I respect a deliberate law-breaker? I search far and wide for low bid American workers or naturalized citizens who can comprehend my instructions in English.

Don't respect their decision to cross the border illegally, respect them as a person and for their hard work. Where did you head off to from the last forum?

How so? Pull your head out of MB one of these days--go to Santa Ana, Huntington Park, etc...in many, many cases there ARE in fact two and three FAMILIES to a 2-3 BR house.

How often do you have to listen to say, John and Ken before you get it?

Oh, that's right--no life east of PCH. My bad.

I've been to Watts, seen the deteroiration of SFV AND SGV, worked with a gang member, met numerous illegal immigrants, driven through Compton, worked will all Mexicans...please...don't attack someone's location when you haven't understood their personal experience...John and Ken are why white folks are unfairly labeled racist..and as a white male i don't desire that reputation.

This is not a Latino issue.

This is 2006. This is America. Illegals are too late. They missed the US industrial-age by about a hundred years.

This is an age where anything less than a college diploma here is unacceptable. Our kids know that. Yet, you[dusean1986] still insist on allowing these illegals to keep invading our country. Most jobs will be gone in five years max. (... Globilization).

This simply isn't the American way of life. So if rich CEO's want to pay $8 bucks an hour-so be it! Fine-- Deport all illegal workers, and then deport their cheap CEO, who won't hire Americans, as well.
