Illegals break the law and come here and then do this to a town and you wonder why people are upset?
OK so the intent of a thread like this is to justify hate, thanks.

No; we should be equally critical of illegal aliens as we are of American citizens. My point was just that those pictures are nothing out of the ordinary in poor parts of the rural South.

What purpose does this thread have, but to depict all illegals as the underbelly of civilization? Which many Americans live like this.
You know darn well that someone who isn't clean (i.e. doesn't dust/vacuum/mop up as frequently as would be desired) is not even CLOSE to living in this trash. The worst thing, from my perspective at least, is that these conditions were brought into the area, it isn't like these illegals picked out a place that reminded them of home and felt as happy as pigs in s***. No, if you read the letter assocaited with this story, this town has undergone an overwhelming (and NEGATIVE) change.

Saying that anyone claimed that ALL ILLEGALS being the underbelly of civilization is YOUR interpretation. It is ridiculous to assume that now everyone thinks all illegals have dead decomposing carcasses on the roofs of their shacks. By saying so, are you trying to make it seem like this isn't actually happening? It is happening - it's real - and it's disgusting. Something needs to be done about it. No one is advocating that all hispanics or all illegals are guilty of this. But to make excuses and play the victim in this is not going to solve anything. The real victims are the citizens of Saluda SC. Do you have any compassion for them? Did they deserve this?

Mach, it's clear that your ethnic loyalty ("Mexican first; American second") prevents you from seeing this issue rationally. Just accept that you've lost the argument and that illegal aliens are ruining this country.

Actually- I believe we should be more critical of Illegals. Why would I not be? Again-Illegals have no right to be here. Americans do have a right to be here.

From the letter:

Quote:
Officers say about $7,500 in counterfeit merchandise was seized, including 658 CDs and MP3s, 23 DVD's, clothing, ID holders, bracelets, covers, bandanas, sports equipment, and fuzzy dice.

And among those arrested:

Jose Jimenez, 27, of Saluda
Fuzzy DICE can be counterfeit?

And last time i saw Jose Jimenez was on the Ed Sullivan show.

Compassion? Sure. However, do you know that people did not live like that before the illegals? I mean I have seem some pretty nasty trailers in the south (no offense). Pinellas Park, FL rings a bell.

How about this for a high-rise in Florida:


I think the demographics have changed and people are hating. Just call ICE on the businesses, no need for this non-sense.

We are not supposed to take offense to offensive behavior, when it is perpetrated by hispanics, and most of all, people who originally hail from Mexico. Get with the program nicolem!
