I cannot go anywhere without hearing LOUD conversations in Spanish and my husband being asked to interpret at almost every visit to K-Mart or Wal-Mart. It seems to me our Governer doesn't give a crap he has his sights on trying to green us all up here.
BTW, jpimus I was just thinking the other day how everything gets said over and over on here some may say it better and longer but we just keep saying the same things over and over. It is nice to see someone taking some action and REALLY wanting to do something. Thank you!
I am surprised Utah would have a labor shortage sinse Mormons have the highest birth rates on avg in the nation.

Thanks, I changed it a bit, to possibly get a clearer shot through the wall.

As soon as they are told:
"The americans can do it for $$$$ and the illegals can do it for 1/2 the price and twice as fast"

They completely forget about their hate against "illegals" for a few days or weeks, depending on the project

O RLY?

A true anti-illegal would:

1) Re-roof their own home
2) Grow their own vegetables
3) Put up a new fence with the 2 neighborly kids "Steve and Mikey" who work for lemonade and popsicles.
4) Not buy at Walmart, even though the same thing is 20.00 cheaper there.
5) Not buy pre-made things from China or Mexico, which means about everything.

Because we are nation who spends more and does more, for our beliefs....

Lol,
meanwhile I'll have my mexicans "3 amigos" building a 2nd floor on my house and I just pay them with free room and food.
And since I speak spanish, we just hang out at the end of the day and drink a few "cervezas" while watching "futbol"

The value of my house doubles, while you're paying $25 an hour to a guy that doesn't know how to work a staple gun.

Mach 50 & Danilo 11,

I like how you criticized my "disclaimer" when my post was targeting the main source of the problem. The fact of the matter is the majority of the illegal aliens in this country are Hispanic. I am sorry this interferes with your 'man of the people' crusade, but the numbers don't lie.

Every May 1st, millions of illegal aliens who are MOSTLY Hispanic march throughout our cities and demand citizenship. They become instant criminals by breaking the law by crossing the border illegally and then make demands upon my government. So yes, when I see a Hispanic who is not fluent in English, I wonder if he or she is part of the problem. You can call it racial profiling or whatever liberal accusation you want to dodge the issue. The fact of the matter is I am a former New York City school teacher and I know for a fact a great deal of my students were here illegally are all of them happen to be from Central America .

Why are my tax dollars going to these illegal immigrants? I don't want to pay for people who don't belong in this country. Many of these illegal aliens have about eight kids each in a attempt to earn protection from deportation and I have to pay for them.

So don't be a wise a** when I am not the one who created this problem. It's not my fault the majority of illegal aliens are from Central and South America. Some people use racial slurs when dealing this issue and I do not support such tactics. However, I am not going to let political correctness prevent me from pointing out who the majority of the illegal alien criminals are.

We don't have millions of French, British, German, Egyptian, South African or Italian illegal immigrants over crowding our schools, over stretching our police services with street gangs and flooding our hospital emergency rooms resulting in me and my family paying the bill.

Is everyone single illegal alien from Central or South America? No, but they are by the far the majority and that is what I am pointing out. Sorry the truth hurts.

I don't have a problem with whatever you think, that's inside your head
my problem is when I'm teaching my kids spanish in a public place (could be any language) and some SOB looks at me as if I was teaching my kids to smoke cigarettes or drink beer.

BTW,
"my mexicans 3 amigos" (yes, I put an extra "s" because I type 55 wpm) means "my 3 mexican friends"

Yeah but what about this:

Note: I am not interested in any sort of hate group. No racism or bigotry please. Let's stay professional.
I would say you made a quick jump from your needs of no bigotry or racism to inferring hispanic and spanish on a train = illegals.

You know what I lived in NYC and there a TON of legal spanish speaking people that live in Queens, Brooklyn, L.I., Harlem...etc. I would ride the N/W train to Astoria and hear nothing but Spanish. I guess they were all illegals the entire time.
