Speaking of, what would happen to the restaurant industry if there were no illegal immigrants here..
The wages would have to rise out of poverty level which btw would attract the workers that used to work there until 15-20 years ago before the Illegal invasion,

Americans.

Are you even from San Diego?

Even the bad neighborhoods are nothing like LA.
HUNH?

Just S of El Cajon BL from the 125 to the 5 running all the way to the border is mostly @#$ hole. That is where they stick rookie cops

It's also where the highest concentration of crime is. My office is there and no way I stop after dark anywhere. Even the Taco Bells and other fast food joints have bullet proof glass.

In other words, you endorse modern-day slavery. You do realize most illegals do not receive wages and benefits legal citizens would receive, don't you? You do realize many unscrupulous employers exploit them because they know illegals won't complain, lest they risk being reported and deported, don't you? You have no problem with this? You consider this capitalism? I guess the use of slaves on the plantations was also your idea of good ole capitalism?

It’s interesting how your comments fluctuate between being somewhat rational, when few pro-illegals are posting; and total off-the-charts illegal alien gloating, when you notice the presence of your cohorts.

The only people who think San Diego has a lot of crime are the townies who have never left San Diego, or the transplants from Mayberry and other flyover states.

For a city of over 1,000,000, San Diego has very little crime compared to other cities its size, and smaller.

Ibarrio, it is great to see a post that disputes the chicken little of the sky is falling, of course the USA is a long way off from being a third world country. I think it is a scapegoat for once again the "hispanics".

Hahaha. Great observations really.. really.. I feel the love coming from you because you care enough to observe me so closley! Anyway, I was speaking of Mexicans, you should read some of the responses to my previous posts. But hey you regard peoples posts as "rational" because they agree with your beliefs anything else is well, proposterous and comesforth the flaming . You do realize the flaming comes from certain members right?

It doesn't take close observation to realize something so conspicuous. Id have to be blind to miss it.

I don't recall mentioning anything about flaming comments. I merely stated the obvious. You change your 'tune' when joined by other pro-illegals. Obviously, they give you more courage to let the true Californio emerge. Whatever it takes.

I also notice you completely evaded the questions posed in the first paragraph of my post. Why is that your norm?
